Where to Advertise your Affiliate Product/Service or Business for free

Updated on April 4, 2011

Make Money Online

affiliate programs

Are you an affiliate, and don’t know where to start? I would first recommend that you become knowledgeable about your product. You should believe in what you are trying to sell. Once you believe in what you are trying to sell, you have over 50 % of the battle beat. If you know it is a good product, you have a better chance at convincing me it is a good product.

Since you believe in your product, I would recommend doing a search for free advertisement. There is plenty out there. Generate a list of what is most appealing to you, write those websites down.


Join social networks, and talk to others, the more people you meet, the better chances you have! You need to be careful though, and try not to sound like a used car sells man, think about who you would buy something from, and apply those same tactics.


Advertise on other peoples sites. If you see a site that has allot of traffic, use that to your advantage! Maybe you can email the web-master, and ask if you can trade your links. For example, I will let you advertise for free on mine, if you allow me to do the same on yours. If they say no, move on!


Why should you advertise?

Why should you advertise?

When you advertise online, you are increasing your chances of being seen. Maybe you have an affiliate product, an article, or your own website. You know you need to get the word out there. Do you realize how important it is getting the word out about your product?

2% of sales are made on the first contact

3% of sales are made on the second contact

5% of sales are made on the third contact

10% of sales are made on the fourth contact

80% of sales are made on the fifth to twelfth contact

The information above should tell you that you need to expose your product. You need to get the word out there. Another interesting fact: If someone sees something they are interested in, chances are, they will not buy it the first time they see it.

It will actually take a couple of times, for most people to see something before they decide to buy it. That being said, there is importance of a reputation, and your presence online. You have to expose yourself, and get the word out about your product. It takes a while for a reputation to kick in from a new business. You need to exercise patience, and be consistent.

You can better expose your business by advertising

If you are just starting out, chances are that you want to make as much money as possible, and spend as little as possible. So, here are some suggestions on cheap advertisement or you.

You are going to need to believe in your product and or service. You are going to need to be convincing, to add to your odds of getting someone to buy something that is offered by thousands of other people.

blog about your product and or service

You may also choose to blog about your product and or service. This is free in most places, and most of the time, it gets free hits. So go ahead, blog, and do a lot of copy and paste of your affiliate product. Do not become someone that spams others though. You need to use tact, and mingle a little.

Make sure your content is interesting.

Read other peoples blogs, comment on them, and add your link if this is allowed. You will establish a better reputation if the product you are advertising is related to the blog you are commenting on. Do you think you would be successful selling tarot cards to church group? It would be highly unlikely. You may actually make your reputation worse by doing something like that. It is important to make sure your item, and target audience is related.


Do a search for free classifieds. Place your service, and or product there. Just be careful about posting too much personal information on the web.

Call a local newspaper, it is cheaper than you think to advertise with the classifieds.

advertise free


Begin telling everyone about your product, online, through blogs, free classifieds, link exchanges, friends, family, etc. If you are just starting out, then never pay too much for advertisements until you know that it is going to work for you, or until you have a better idea of what you are doing. This may take some time to make money at, but you need to be patient, and remember, that is through trial and error, that you will succeed.

Remember, that you should choose free ways of advertisements, until you get the hang of it. Do a search for free advertisements, and see what you come up with. You can also make a web page, promoting the product; make sure you use your affiliate link, to get credit for your work.
