How to Make Money Without a Website

In this post, I will tell you how to make money without a website. It’s all free and easy to do. Just follow the rules.

If you’re interested in making money with affiliate marketing but worry about any business expenses, then I have great news for you.

With affiliate marketing, you don’t have to break the bank to make money with affiliate links.

I love affiliate marketing because you earn passive income when you create evergreen content, allowing you to earn income every month.

This allows you to earn an income while living a nomadic lifestyle. You only need a laptop, a publishing platform, and reliable internet access.

So, you can put your credit card back into your wallet.

Grab a pen and paper and get ready to take some notes.

Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links at no additional cost to you. I only recommend products I would use myself, and all opinions expressed here are my own. In addition, I may earn a small commission.

5 Best and Easiest Ways to Know How to Make Money Without a Website


Writing blog posts on Medium is completely free.

And if you live in a country where the MPP (Medium Partner Program) is not available, you can monetize your blog posts on Medium in other ways.

One of the best ways to do that is through affiliate marketing.

If you already have an audience on Medium and you’re not part of MPP, then you can sign up for affiliate programs for free and promote your affiliate links in your content here on Medium.

I bought an affiliate marketing course in the summer of 2020 with my unemployment check because I wanted to learn how to monetize my blog posts with affiliate links.

I implemented everything I’d learned in the early lessons and have seen results. I’m still not finished with the course yet. I am still learning.

You can sign up for a FREE 5-day Bootcamp to see for yourself. When you’re ready you can decide if this is for you.

It’s easy to make money on Medium with affiliate links for so many great reasons. Here is why:

  • It’s easy to grow and connect with your audience
  • You have access to stats
  • No need to add additional website expenses such as hosting, domains, or plugins.
  • As long as you follow Medium rules and policies and FTC law, you will be good.
  • It simply works.

Medium is my favorite platform to monetize my affiliate links because of all the reasons mentioned above.

All I have to invest in for my Medium posts are CanvaPro, an SEO tool such as UberSuggest, Mangools, and Creative Fabrica for images and fonts.

You might also want to consider investing in AI tools such as Jasper, Content at Scale, or SurferSEO for On-Page SEO to help you scale your content fast and have a much better chance of ranking on Google.

Medium vs. Your Own Blog or Website

In case you are wondering if it is still worth it to have Medium as a platform vs. a blog, the answer is yes.

Here is why. I started writing on Medium in 2019 and made my first affiliate sale in 2022.

I didn’t have an actual blog, and I got accepted into a few high-paying affiliate programs.

(Update: As of 2024, I have my own website due to Medium no longer distributing my articles and I closed my account on Medium.)


If you have a YouTube channel or planning to start one soon, you can monetize your channel with affiliate links.

This is great because you don’t have to wait for AdSense to get your channel monetized by Google.

You’ll add all your affiliate links (depending on your content) in your description box in every video you create.

Make sure the content of your videos is relatable to the link you’re providing in your description box.

For example, if I want to talk about how to start a POD business, then in my description box I will add all the links relatable to any tools used for launching a POD business.

*POD means Print-on-Demand.

Promote your channel on every platform you join, such as social media, your blog, word of mouth, and forums such as Quora, Reddit, and Facebook groups.

VidIQ has a basic plan that is free to use forever. VidIQ offers Pro, Boost, Max, and Enterprise plans to help creators of all sizes grow their channel(s)

Social Media

With social media, it is important to read and follow their policy on how to post your links.

Always use a disclaimer.

You can also add hashtags such as #ads, #affiliatelink, or use a set of parentheses with the word affiliate link on your posts.

For example, use the format: (affiliate link).

On platforms such as Facebook (or even Twitter), it is recommended to use a landing page so your traffic can be directed to a signup page to obtain an email list, and this way will help you not get flagged by Facebook or Twitter.

Create a landing page using Systeme.io or LeadPages, and for email sign-ups and automation, I recommend both.

If you’re creating ads on social media, I suggest using automation and email marketing software such as Keap to help you with your marketing and sales funnel strategy.

Try Keap for a 14-Days FREE TRIAL. Save 20%off on annual plans.

You can also schedule all your social media posts (except ads) ahead of time with social media management apps such as CrowdFire or TailWind.

Use the Canva app to make beautiful graphics for social media posts. You can try CanvaPro for free for 30 days.

LinkTree is a link-in-bio app that is not 100% free to use.

And that does not include the stats.

With LinkTree, you need to pay for a plan or for an upgrade.

You can monetize the link in your bio and even add a storefront directly from LinkTree to sell your products through LinkTree.

Some of the links you can also add are affiliate links.

Add all your affiliate links to your social media profile and then promote your link on Instagram or TikTok.

Start Your Own Podcast

Similar to YouTube, you can add your links to your show’s notes.

Here is a link to get more details on how to promote your links on your podcast.

In Conclusion

So now you know that the best and easiest way to learn how to make money without a website is by monetizing your platforms with your affiliate links.

You can use platforms such as Medium, YouTube, social media, the LinkTree app, and even a podcast if you have one.

None included a paid domain, host, or expensive tools or plugins because you don’t need them. For example, with YouTube or LinkTree bio, you don’t need a domain, plugins, or especially a website. For Medium, if you’re a paid member, then you’re welcome to add your own paid domain to your profile and use it as a website. Or add your LinkTree bio to your Medium profile.

You can promote them for free as long as you have an audience you can reach out to.

Just follow your affiliate program contract terms and conditions.

Follow FTC rules and guidelines and any platform you use to promote your links.

And with that, you’re good to go.
