    Hi guys, I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about affiliate marketing with clickbank (no phone verification). Basically, since I haven't used any of the methods on this site to earn any money yet, I prefer to keep it free until I've made some cash to invest back in. I have web hosting, but I don't know that I need it for this.

    I'm trying to decide how to best get people to view and hopefully click on and purchase something from one of my affiliate links.

    So far, I've been messing with SENuke. This seems to be pretty useful, but I'm not sure exactly what to use it with.

    I've been exploring some options.

    1. Using a blog to write reviews on different products (Is it fine to use a free wordpress blog?)
    2. Using a blog to post c+p articles with my affiliate link
    3. Writing 1 article with lots of "spins" then using SENuke to post it to social networking sites (No clue how well this works, if at all)
    4. Using sites like squidoo/hubpages to advertise/review? (If so, posting "ads" or writing decent articles?)

    I'm not sure whether any one of these options works well by itself. I appreciate any feedback, and any information, links to topics are appreciated.

    I apologize for the questions, I'm simply not sure what to do with so many possible directions to go in.

    You have stopped doing PPI? Lol.

    Never use free wordpress blog to do affiliate marketing. Wordpress.c0m will quickly remove your website. Since you have web hosting just buy another domain name and install wordpress on it.

    Squidoo and hubpages are good for getting backlinks and some whitehat traffic.

    Nope, I haven't been doing PPI lately, but that isn't to say I've stopped permanently.

    Thank you for the tips so far. :)

    You could setup a blog with minimum 1 review, and an about and contact us page for credibility. You could just do article/bum marketing without setting up any blog (you could hire someone to write articles at $3 a pop etc).

    That's how I would start and then once you get some experience then you can explore creating your own websites etc.

    Thank you for the advice Droppin Loads, what I've been doing so far is working on an account on Hubpages building credibility and "fans" with some decent free hubs (free tips, etc), then linking to more "promotional" hubs and my review blog.

    I'm still trying to figure out exactly what to do with SENuke, I can post articles, but I don't know how much traffic they'll generate, especially if I copied someone else's article and changed the links to mine. I'm also not sure how important "spinning" the content is when writing an article; how unique the posts need to be.
