Freebie Websites

I was reading a topic about marketing a website, but I was curious to know if joining affiliate programs and using a free website to promote them has any value?

I'm only starting out. I'm in the UK and I am not certain of which hosting company to use, be it in the UK or elsewhere.

Regarding the marketing, I have been wondering also what value there is in trying to get traffic to a free website. For example I have various names from Yahoo! and could use the free space they offer to put up a few pages, but again is there any value in that?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

Brian

ps Don't forget the 12 Days of Christmas ends tomorrow. 78 Top marketers are in a festive mood giving away freebies.

I'm not sure if I have set up a signature yet!

When I first started out online I made over $5000 promoting affliate programs on free web hosting (This was way back in 1998, and I wasn't old enough for a credit card to pay for hosting or domains which were expensive!)

These days hosting and domains are so cheap, there is no reason to use free hosting. Take a look at www.FreeServers.com if you really want free hosting, but have your own domain name. You can buy a domain name for less than $10 and then use freeservers.com for free hosting of that domain (with a banner). Then when you have begun to make money, you can transfer that domain to paid hosting and not lose what you've built up (traffic and recognition for that domain)
