The Best Free Affiliate Website Builders

So you’re just getting started with affiliate marketing and wondering about your first website options. Should you go the free route until you know whether or not you can make money with affiliate marketing?

Or should you just pony up and get a paid hosting account and do things the right way from day one?

We’ll look at both options on this page.

Should You Go The Paid Website Builder Route?

If you’re serious about making money online I strongly believe that the best strategy for website creation is paying a few bucks up front for a hosting account and learning how to build your own website.

Why? Let me list three reasons:

  1. By getting your own hosting account you’re committing to your success and securing a vested interest in it. A free site may seem fine but if you put some of your hard-earned money into your efforts you’ll be more likely to follow through until you succeed. A free site may bring the mentality that ‘it was free anyways so it’s no big deal if things don’t go well and you quit. Plus getting your own hosting account is surprisingly inexpensive.
  2. Making your own site on a paid-hosting account with WordPress is simple. You don’t have to have any technical experience at all and you do not need to learn any coding. And by making your own site it will be put together exactly the way you want it to and you’ll be able to make changes to your site without having to wait for help (or additional expense) to do so.
  3. Down the road you won’t be be limited by free-platform functionality. I’ve seen many internet marketers go the free route only to find out later that there are serious limitations to your site once it’s built. Moving all of your website content from the free platform to another, which you’ll likely want to do at some point, is a major headache. I know because I had to do it once.
That said, if you decide against a free site and want to get your own hosting account to build your affiliate site on I have written a ridiculously-detailed tutorial page on how to do so step-by-step here. If you have a few bucks to spend this is the best route to take. And please trust me when I tell you that it’s really inexpensive to get started and simple to get your new website online. DO NOT be intimidated by this.

Free Affiliate Website Platforms

OK, so you don’t have to a couple of bucks to spend on building a website on your own hosting account from the start. That’s OK too; hey I’ve been there. We all need to start somewhere so you can also start with a free website until your affiliate commissions start coming in.

If you’re a total newbie, using a low-end beginner site is one way to learn the affiliate marketing game on the cheap. You have plenty of time to set the world on fire with a turbo-charged trophy website later on. Just know that at some point down the road you’ll need to move your site or upgrade your plan.

Unfortunately nearly all free website builders suck. Sorry to be so blunt, but this is the truth. In fact, there is only one free website platform that is worthwhile in my opinion:

Weebly

 

 

Weebly is great. Why? Because it’s super easy to learn and use. As in, drag and drop easy.

Here are the benefits to you by choosing Weebly:

  1. Free to use: Weebly’s gives you enough tools to build a fully functional website. Not bad for a free platform! You won’t even need a credit card to sign up for your free account which is nice. There is plenty of room to upgrade to the paid platform but zero pressure from them to do so. In fact you can use the free platform indefinitely if you would like to.
  2. Simple and fast: By far the easiest website builder to start with. It’s a simple drag and drop site builder with enough tools to get you what you want without overwhelming you. You do not need to learn any coding. Weebly’s user interface is also simplified allowing you to build a fully functional website in less than an hour.
  3. Design flexibility: Several templates to choose from to both fit your niche and look professional. They are constantly releasing new template designs for you to use – even with the free platform account. They’ll even let you get jiggy with the customization if you know coding or hire a coder to work for you.

    • Bill Burniece

      Hi Murphy. Weebly is free with choices to upgrade to a free plan later on. Most of the paid hosting plans require at least quarterly, if not annual, payment up front. Sincerely – Bill

    1) Is it ok or possible to use free website/hosting (such as Weebly) to promote affiliate programs for a start? Otherwise, would you recommend the best cheapest hosting which allows no limit websites? Can I promote different affiliate programs in one website or better to have different separate individual website?

    Reply
    • bill

      Hi Sunny Lim, yes you can. Weebly works great when you’re getting started. You can promote several different programs on one site as long as they’re related to the same topic. Sincerely – Bill
