Free Website Setup – Eliminating Online Marketing Overhead

A great start to a website campaign is to get the most out of the money you currently have. In most cases the starting capital for a new online business is relatively low and therefore marketers are forced to market their website in the most cost-effective way possible. One sure way to start up in the most cost-effective way would be to eliminate the cost of web development and web design by trying to find free website setup. Free website setup comes mostly with affiliate sites.

An affiliate site is a site in which you promote someone else’s or another company’s product or service. In most cases you would have a drop-shipping arrangement with this company, in which you don’t worry about anything but the marketing aspect of the product. When you receive an order through your link to an affiliate site they will receive the order directly and do whatever shipping methods are needed. If the sold item is a service no shipping is necessary. Once the order is placed you will receive a certain percentage as commission for referring the sale. The key is to look for a great product or service that would sell and has a generous commission percentage.

With some affiliate sign-ups the company would give you a website gateway which would have your affiliate ID embedded in it to promote. Once sales are made through this gateway page you receive commissions. Some affiliate partnerships can result in residual income. What is residual income you ask? Residual income is income in which you receive every month as with a web hosting service. You would get a monthly payment from each customer every month that they remain a customer. Residual income opportunities are the wave of the future and a great way to result in a full time income from online marketing.

Web design and web development costs can get pretty pricey especially since most the time it is charged by the hour. With affiliate sites however it is easy to find sites that will offer free website setup, which will rid you of the thousands of dollars that can be spent with web developers and designers.

Now that you have eliminated 2 “overhead” factors of online marketing (eg. Inventory and web development) all that is left to focus on is the actual marketing of the product(s)/service(s). Saving all the money from the elimination of these “overheads” will allow you to have a bigger budget for promoting these product(s)/service(s). Therefore, in the end you will be able to have a more effective online business campaign.
