Your Own Website
If youíre serious about promoting the Heartburn No More program or any affiliate product for that matter in a professional manner and making long term income, then you must have your own website. Your need your own website so you could capture email addresses, presell the program to your prospects (I will speak more about preselling later on) and have a landing page where you could send prospects to from your pay per click campaigns.
You need a website not only to generate sales from the product youíre promoting but you also need to gain control and benefit from the traffic youíre generating in terms of building your subscriberís list and monezite it long term.
To increase your conversions and sales, you also need to presell the program and you canít pre-sell your prospects without a website.
Additionally, Google has recently instituted a policy change, which prohibits affiliates from linking directly to a merchant's site. So there you have another reason why you need to have your own website.
To build you own website you need two things: a domain name and web hosting service.

Whatever you decide, donít go for the free hosting solutions. Itís not worth the headaches or the ads displayed on your account (this is how they cover costs). Additionally, it will make you look extremely unprofessional in the eyes of your prospects. Note: If youíre struggling for money, then you can always choose a free blogging solution like blogger (blogger.com) or wordpress (wordpress.org).
Now that you have your own website up and running, you got to know how to place content on your pages, format and edit it. For this you must either have basic HTML knowledge (you can find numerous html resources on the web such as htmlprimer.com), you can choose a web hosting solution that offers free html editors or you can go for the professional top-of-the-line software for creating
affiliate pages quickly and easily.
