    This method originally started when I was trying to get new clients to my own web hosting business, but ended up working better by promoting my affiliate links for other more established web hosting companies. So this method will work for either affiliate websites or your own hosting business.



    This method is simple and easy to implement, however you will need to be able to setup basic WordPress websites. They will only be small simple websites for small usually local business's or personal websites.



    Okay so I'll try get straight to the point and keep this post simple, to many times have I viewed similar types of posts where they just ramble on for ages till they get to the point, just so they can build up the content for SEO purposes.



    You will need to have your hosting website or affiliate website already setup so that you are ready to start receiving the people you will be communicating with.



    So now lets assume you got your website ready and your good to go. You now need to setup a Facebook account with the sole intention of joining buy/sell groups. Now I know what your thinking “hear we go another post about blasting my website links across Facebook groups” but this is different you wont be putting any links in any of the posts. Instead you will be putting a post like this:



    “If anyone needs a website built free of charge please feel free to message me, I'm currently just starting out on my own after working for a web design company for the last 5 years and need to start building a portfolio of my work”



    You can use what I've written there but it's always better to use something you've written yourself.



    I was joined to about only 6 Facebook groups when I first tested this method and I posted what I said above in all 6 groups. Within about 20mins I had few responses, by the end of the day I had 15 responses, most of these where via the messenger and not on the post itself.



    Out of the 15 responses 12 of them where after small websites, for a plumbing business, a personal trainer etc...



    Okay so now that your getting interest the last thing you want to do is just be like yeah I'll build your website but you need to buy a domain name and hosting from this link. You need to communicate a little bit first just send a few messages back and forth and ask what their after on their website.



    The best things to do to make sure they go ahead is either build them a quick example of how there website will look (only the main page should be okay) or show them an example of your work (obviously this one wont work if you've posted what I've written above).



    Now if they like your work and they say they want to proceed this is when you explain to them that they will need a domain name and hosting for the website. Most of the people your communicating with will already kind of be expecting this and to be honest a few of them will have already asked you for recommendations.



    Now what you want to say here is that you have used the hosting services at most of the big hosting companies and these are the best ones in terms of site speed etc... then either send them to your hosting website or your affiliate website.

    I feel that I've rambled on a bit but I hope I've got straight to the point for you and that the post was easy to follow.



    As you can see I had 12 potential sales within the first day off only 6 Facebook groups. With your own hosting website your earnings can vary depending on how much you charge but they will also be ongoing. If your promoting affiliate links your earnings could potentially be up to $2400 for a couple days work (depending on quick you can flip up the websites).



    The $2400 is based on the commission amount you would earn if you where promoting the wpengine affiliate program as they pay a minimum of $200 per sale. There are loads of other hosting companies with high commission payouts such as hostgator.

    Nice method. You could also promote on Craigslist.

    Thanks. One question, Is it possible that they click on something wrong on your affiliate link and sign up without you getting the commission?

    And then you just stop talking to them? Or start making all the websites for free?

    True one of BHW's biggest rehashes. Although most people would not have the brain power to twist the method and use Facebook groups to find customers. Which is great because these days near enough all small businesses have a Facebook page.

    Just make a WordPress site and install visual composer. Play around with it. You would have to be fair simple not to get the hang of it after several weeks at most. Use stock images for all your image content. Get content writers for the content.

    If you don't have the skillset, find someone who does and figure out a way for it to be profitable. Then you scale it.

    Why do we need content writer ? I think we would just set the website up for them so they can post whatever they want on it while we get profit off hosting affilite

    Or make sure they have content ready to send over. You could always outsource the writing and charge them for it.

    I'd guess there would be better retention on websites all ready and set up, than an empty website, which a lot of people will look at, not understand, then fuck it off.

    What like don't use your link? Of course they can lol.

    Also I used this method it worked great before in like 2014. You can upsell them content and images too. Who wants burgers without the fries and shake?

    Warn them if they do not use paid for pictures they can have their hosting etc cancelled.

    Also for anyone who will just make them sign up then not help them build the site, they'll cancel the plans
