I’ve had my fingers burnt so many times. I understand why people want a free website for affiliate marketing, and it can be accomplished, without too much pain. I describe in simple steps, how to create a free website for affiliate marketing, and go on to learn to earn good money online.
You are in a situation where you want to build an online business, but you have no money. You don’t even have the cash for a computer or even an internet connection. Perhaps, you are out of work or retired, and on a limited income. You cannot afford to take the risk of losing what little money you have. But still, you want to do something to give yourself hope for something better.
Well, I will show you how it is possible to get started without spending anything except your time, which quite probably you have plenty.
Are you ready to get started?
Get a Free Computer for Affiliate Marketing
Along with most countries, the UK has public libraries in almost every town. Most of the libraries have computers with an internet connection, and some are free to use or have a nominal fee. Other public bodies and charities have similar facilities. Some libraries have free to use computers but you pay for internet usage, everywhere is different. Ask around.
Can I Create a Free Website?
There are companies online that offer to create a free website in the hope that you will upgrade to a premium website. Some businesses even provide free training on how to build a website. Have you thought of a niche? Something that you are knowledgeable about and can share that knowledge with others who are searching the internet for that very information.
Failing that, you can join a secure affiliate training website, that also has an affiliate product, that you can get to know and understand, and enable you to become an authority.
You’ll how to create a free website to market the affiliate training website’s product and earn affiliate commissions? Pop over to my 2018 Review of Wealthy Affiliate and check out what I have to say in detail on such a company.

Create a Free Website With SiteRubix
SiteRubix is a domain owned by Wealthy Affiliate. As a free member, you can set up and operate two free subdomain WordPress sites. It is so simple to do with just a few clicks. Go ahead and set up your first WordPress website on the SiteRubix platform. Your free subdomain would look something like “myfirstwebsite.siterubix.com”.
As a subdomain, you do not need to register and buy a domain name because you are building your website on a subdomain of SiteRubix, so there is no need at this point to purchase a domain. A subdomain is a section, or folder, below Wealthy Affiliates’ SiteRubix domain.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is a highly regarded and well-supported website development environment, as it has been around a long time, and people trust it. It is simple to use and straightforward to set up. Easy to use does not mean any less complicated. There are thousands of WordPress Plugins available to add sophisticated functions not readily available in an underlying theme. The theme is the look-and-feel, or design, of your website. Again, in just a couple of clicks, you can download and install a different theme to your WordPress website.
