I know, every ‘guru’ out there is saying the money is in the list. I'm not a ‘guru', and I do think a list is a nice income source, but it's not the only one. You can generate ridiculous profits without owning a list. It's all about preferences and you can make a full-time income out of ‘list-less’ affiliate marketing. (I know, it sounds like ‘listless', but this one is a good thing!)
Here are ways you can generate huge affiliate income without a list:
The great part about blogs is that they are really effective for search engine optimization purposes! Blogs are viewed as authority sites by the likes of Google and Yahoo and you gain a search engine advantage when you start off with a Blogger blog or a Wordpress blog. You can use a blog to pre-sell affiliate products and also add in Google Adsense.
2. Article Marketing
Of course, this is one of the most popular ways to monetize affiliate programs! And it works, if you are willing to put in either time or money. If you want to write the articles, that's great! If you don't, you'd need to outsource the task of writing the articles to a reliable freelancer. The awesome thing about articles is that they will remain in circulation for years or even for a lifetime, giving you seemingly endless residual traffic.
3. Search Engine Optimization
Create authority sites or blogs as mentioned above and use them to get high placements in the search engines. Search engine traffic is one of the best around as they are often highly-targeted and it's totally free too. The traffic can be residual too and your placements can remain high for months or even years. Always look to work search engine optimization into your affiliate marketing game plan.
