How To Make Extra Money Without A Website

One of the great things about the Internet is how it has made it so much easier for the average person to make extra money.

No longer do you have to wait weeks for your money to come in from a mail order business. Nor do you have to surrender your precious blood, sweat and tears running a backbreaking service business. It’s a fact; you can actually sit in front of your computer and make extra money. You can even make extra money without a website and this article will explain how.

No doubt, if you’ve done any research on how to make extra money, then you’ve heard the words ‘affiliate marketing.’ Affiliate marketing typically involves having a website that has links to relevant affiliate programs, allowing you to make a little money from the traffic that is already visiting your site.

Or, affiliate marketing involves using pay per click ads to drive traffic to the affiliate program page. Although this method doesn’t require you to have a website, it’s generally not a good method for a beginner to get involved in, because it can get expensive in a hurry.

Luckily for us though, there is a way to make extra money without a website and it’s a method that is simple to implement. The only scary part is that does involve a little work. If you’re not willing to put in the effort, then this may not be for you.

You’ll want to find an affiliate program you’re comfortable with. Probably one you have a little knowledge of the subject matter. Once you’ve picked your program, you need to do your keyword research. There are plenty of free tools available for this step.

You’ll be looking for overlooked keywords that don’t have a lot of competition. They need to have some traffic on the search engines, but the competition should be lower. Once you have your likely keywords picked out, you will write articles, using the keywords in the titles and in the article body. You will link to the affiliate program from the article and also from your author resource box.

Most article directories allow you to have four links- two in the article and two in your author resource. Try to use relevant linking text, text that the search engines will gleefully gobble up.

By writing interesting articles and posting them to high traffic article directories, you will create a steady stream of traffic to your favorite affiliate programs and you’ll soon be unlocking the code to how to make money without a website.
