Minimum Affiliate Marketing Publisher Requirements

Joining affiliate marketing programs (such as ShareASale) and PPC (pay per click) advertising networks (such as Chitika) is free.

The minimum requirements for publishers in affiliate marketing include a registered domain name, a quality website and paid hosting.  Publishers submit their website for approval in PPC Advertising Networks; while in Affiliate Marketing, publisher register with an affiliate program and their site is manually approved by merchant advertisers.  Some merchant stores have automatic approval, but brand name merchant stores approve manually after reviewing the quality of your website.

A second option is to begin in affiliate marketing for free (without paid hosting and a domain name, and without owning a website).  Create a blog to showcase your products and submit articles to free article submission sites including a link to your blog in the resource box. The blog serves as a landing page to pre-sell a product (such as a digital download 'Piano For All' ClickBank Product) that you are marketing through the content writing in your blog.  ClickBank is an in-house affiliate program for digital products and services and it is a popular choice for many blogger who want to monetize their blog page. 

NOTE:   The free method of marketing products is not sanctioned by all affiliate marketing programs as most merchant stores do require affiliate marketers to own a domain name and a professional-looking quality website to market their brands.

There are several free blogging sites that also offer an upgrade package for members who want their own domain name.
