If you need web hosting, you can get a variety of other things, free! Hosting is a very competitive field, because companies can make $100+ / year from each user, and the reality is that most people don’t change hosts. As a result, hosting affiliate programs pay out commissions around $100 – even for new affiliates!
They’re willing to only break even in year 1 or even make that a loss leader, knowing that they’ll recoup their money in the long term.
As a result, you can get free:
- Programming services/code
- Logo creation / design
- Custom landing page designed and coded…
How does this work? You buy the hosting through someone’s affiliate link so that they get the commission, and in exchange they provide you with whatever service you’re seeking. In essence, you get hosting and the hosting company pays for you to get a bonus.
By extension, if you’re willing to move hosting each year, you can get this deal annually…
I’ve done this so I know it works :).
