Affiliate Marketing Tools for Beginners [Free]

You will agree with me that most affiliate marketers loves having marketing tool that makes life a little bit easier. That is true especially when the tools are for free.

Haven said that ,some of the free tools are genuinely free, whereas others are only free for a limited period. 

Today we are going to be looking at some of  the best free affiliate marketing tools that are available to  online.

For a start as an affiliate you will need to have a hosted website,you need content on the website and finally you need traffic to the site right?. The affiliate tools we are going to be looking today will fall under these 3 phases of your affiliate marketing.

In the list of tools below, I tried to include a variety of free tools so that there is at least a couple for all affiliates. So Let’s take a look at the tools that might benefit you the most shall we?

“Best” Free Web Hosting Sites

It’s easy to see why most free web hosting sites do still survive online. Think about the different expenses (hosting service,Autoresponder etc) you will need if you decide to run a successful website. Which is why it’s tempting to try and cut costs wherever possible to stay within your budget especially if you are just starting out.

The problem now is Free web hosts aren’t always what they seem. On these type of platforms there are Tight restrictions. you have restrictions like bandwidth, storage capacity, server speed, not to talk of uptimes. Uptime alone can make your new site unusable.

Personally, I will not recommend that you use  free hosting providers. I will recommend  instead to use a good shared host like A2 Hosting because its newbie friendly.

Haven said that if you are really on a tight budget  here are some preferred free web hosting sites you can start with. But you want to switch to self hosting as soon as you are able.

I bet you probably did not know that in spite of all the free services Google offers it also has a free website builder.

Yeah, that’s right Google also offer a free website builder since 2008 and currently they hosts over 70,000 live websites.

They offer responsive templates, drag and drop editing, embedding HTML and Javascript, and integrations with most of their other services(like Google Drive, Maps, Calendar, and more).

You also get a free subdomain with an SSL certificate, and Google Sites will features no ads on your website. 

Here is an example of a Quiz page I made using Google site

“Zero cost web hosting with PHP, MySQL, cPanel, and no ads!”.

That’s the marketing slogan of 000webhost.com.

The site offers an impressive speeds (especially for a shared free host), and their no-ads policy makes for a much cleaner and friendlier user experience.

Unfortunately, these two factors alone simply aren’t enough to compensate for the sites many limitations when compared to a self hosted service.

The Google Keyword Planner will show you some pretty neat stats like average monthly searches, competition level (high, medium, or low), the average cost per click, and more.

It doesn’t give you exact keyword suggestions but it actually takes it a step further and suggests more synonyms and variations than many other tools available.

But thanks to technology, creating beautiful and unique images is easy, fast, and even free.

Canva is my favourite option when it comes to creating images for my blog and social media channels, as well as other types of visual content. I’m sure, I’m not the only one.

Free Landing Page Builder Tools

 A landing page is a single page used to convert website traffic into leads and customers by highlighting the information they’re looking for and presenting a strong CTA (call-to-action).

Landing pages often require a team of writers, designers and techs to create something outstanding. And this, of course, costs a fair bit of money.

But if you haven’t got the budget to pay an agency hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on a single landing page, Here are some platforms tat will help you create landing pages for your affiliate marketing campaigns for zero cost.

QuickPages

Landing page builder

 Quickpages is a free landing page builder that you can use for free instead of paying for the high ClickFunnels service.

Although the quickpages has limited features when compared to other expensive tools like clickfunnel, the templates they offer are alright and they can do the job.

You can also easily integrate piece of email marketing software with the Quickpages builder.

If you can’t afford ClickFunnels or another landing page/funnel builder, then you can give QuickPages a try!

Free Email Marketing tools

Email marketing is still one of the most effective techniques to promote your business online. And that is Simply because it offers features no other marketing technique does. Features like data-driven marketing, personalized messages, action-oriented campaigns, and cost-effectiveness.

The simplest way to email a group of people is Gmail’s BCC field—but that only lets you email 100 people, and doesn’t look very professional. The better option is to use a tool designed to send marketing emails.

The only problem with tools designed to send marketing emails is their costly start up and monthly fees.

Which is why you will find the following free email services of great help

Benchmark Email

Free email marketing service

Benchmark Email allows you to send beautiful, responsive campaigns in just minutes with a customizable email templates.

The free starter plan allows you to send email campaigns to Unlimited subscribers as well as 250 emails per month

The free plan includes a wide range of email features, including the drop and drag editor, responsive templates, and multiple forms, campaigns, reports, and integrations. 

MailerLite

Next on our list is MailerLite which is a free email autoresponder.

However, there are some things you need to be aware of before using MailerLite.

The first one is that it is only free until you have 1000 subscribers, afterwards it cost $15 a month.

This is completely fine, as when we have 1000 subscribers we should at least be making $500 if not more.

However, now let’s get onto the more important part…

MailerLite does not allow the traditional affiliate marketing model which consists of sending your contacts irrelevant products with affiliate links.

However, they allow ethical affiliates who build a relationship with their contacts, and help them with their needs. 

Free Traffic Source

We all know paid traffic is much more effective, but it can often cost way too much. Its for that same reason why I decided to grow my YouTube channel together with my website using just free traffic.

The only problem with free traffic is that it takes a lot of time and hard work.

In the video below, I am also going to show you how to get tons of traffic for as little as pennies per click on youtube.

I am going to show you how to find youtube channels that have a lot of engagements in their channel videos but have limited ads displayed in the videos so you can hop in front of them and start promoting your offers.

The deal here is, when it comes to videos with limited ads display the cost per click for ads is very low, basically pennies.

You can target that channel with high paying affiliate offers by paying just pennies for ads
