As an affiliate marketer, you’ll probably want to set up an affiliate review site sooner or later. There are a few different reasons why this might be the case.
For one thing, many companies that allow you to promote their products as an affiliate require you to have an affiliate review site for them to check out. They want to make sure you are a legitimate affiliate.
They want to make sure that you understand their target audience. There are, unfortunately, some affiliates out there who scam companies… which has led to a crackdown on applications that might require you to have a website.
You also want an affiliate website because it is just a good idea. You want to have a sort of home base on the web for the things you promote and review as an affiliate. You want to get traffic, even while you’re sleeping. That means having a website.
Also, one of the most important things you can do as an affiliate is to build a list. If you build a list that is very targeted to the types of things you promote, then you can make sales just by sending a simple email. If you focus on building a list via your website and build your list up over time, you can absolutely earn a full-time income as an affiliate… as long as you are in a profitable and popular niche.
