I am a freelance writer but I have always wanted to venture into affiliate marketing as a second, hopefully passive, income source. I bought my domain and wrote a few articles, signed up for Amazon affiliate and got into peerfly. But, my site does not get enough traffic because it’s new and I don’t have enough time to hunt for backlinks.

My idea for this was to use seo to drive targeted traffic to my site and let the sales come from there. Did I start too soon? Should I have worked on the traffic first before signing up for Amazon and peerfly? How else can I drive traffic without use ads? I don’t know the first thing about operating ads and I currently don’t have enough money to channel to ads. Thanks for your help.
