3 Tops Reasons Why You Must Have Your Own Affiliate Marketing Website
Budding entrepreneurs entering the affiliate marketing
business invariably struggle with many questions on the
setup, methods and strategies of their new business.

In dealing with prospects on a daily basis the same
question arises time and time again:

Should I get your own website? Do I need one? Will it make
a difference to my affiliate sales?

If you have ever joined any affiliate programs at all then
you will know that every affiliate program provides you
with your own version of the merchants sales page - coded
with your affiliate link, in order to track sales.

Technically it is possible to make money promoting this
turnkey site that the merchant has provided. In my
professional opinion and from my own experience though,
this is NOT the way to go if you are serious about making
your affiliate business a full-time enterprise.

Let me explain why - giving the most important points
against using the affiliate website:

1. By far the most important factor is that the affiliate
program can go out of business at anytime leaving any
promotions that you have done for your affiliate site
useless. If you have links on the www pointing to an
affiliate page and the company is no longer in existence
then those links will fail to work.

If you have your own website then YOU are in control. You
can simply point the link on your end to a new company and
thus give you a chance of building a new income stream.

2. It is undoubtedly of massive importance that you build
your reputation online. If you only promote another persons
website, even though it will bring you commissions, it will
usually have the name of the product owner on this site.
So, in this case, you are building the merchants'
reputation and web presence instead of your own. Branding
your name and business online will lead to further success
so it's better to get YOUR name out there right from the
very start.

3. Point 3 is, that with an affiliate page you don't have
the ability to make changes to your webpage. Again, this is
a business, so you MUST add your own uniqueness and some
personality to the aspect of this business that you are
presenting to the public. You CANNOT do this with the
affiliate site that the merchant provides - ONLY with your
own website and domain name.

So by now you may be asking for the solution. The only
answer is to get a website and build YOUR own web presence
and brand rather than someone elses. This way you can
promote any affiliate programs you like from your new site
AND you can change the links, content etc. as often as you
require.

This is how I personally do it. If you visit my own sites
you will see that I have added loads of my own content BUT
each of the links from within that site point to affiliate
product from which I will get a commission for evey sale
that is made.

Do you see how this works? Do you see how it is a much
better strategy than promoting an affiliate page that will
NEVER belong to me?

Now, at this stage you may be terrified as to how you where
you would even start to acquire your own business domain
name and website.

The process is actually quite simple, once you actually
begin to push through the fear and take action.

If you don't see the importance of having your own website
now then believe me, it WILL become clear as you get a
better understanding of online business.

For a few dollars per year for a domain name and hosting
you are much better to have an affiliate website than be
without one.
