Do I need a website?

Discussion in 'Commission Junction' started by lastson, May 8, 2011.

    I tried signing up with CJ and put on the brakes when it asked for my website. I don't have a website yet. I will in the future, but I was wanting to get CJ affiliate status first. Is there a way around it? How can I create an affiliate site with CJ products if I need an affiliate site to sign up for CJ?

    basically you dont need "affiliate" site in that sense, just some blog/review site or whatever site with your own domain, but as far as I know you have to include it during sign-up process

    I have a website that allows me to create multiple streams of income from several sources and gives alot more flexability that having a blog. The key is finding a great website building, hosting, forums and online traing to rank high and get free traffic to your site.

    Getting approved on CJ does not take long, I would get your site up and running first then apply for CJ, you can do this fairly cheaply at <10 dollars a month.

    Get a blog and do it up a bit - blogger.com or wordpress is a good start. They just want to be sure that you have a medium to promote their products

    any kind of domain or sub-domain can be used for CJ affiliate marketing. you just have to have a landing page.
