Building Websites The Easy Way For Affiliate Marketing

Building Websites The Easy Way For Affiliate Marketing

There are some myths in affiliate marketing, which attract a lot of people to it believing they are true. First is they think managing an online business is easy and second, they think that one can make a fortune through online marketing in an instant.

Probably not even 10% of those who are into affiliate marketing became rich overnight. There may be some who fortunately achieved overwhelming success in just a short span of time after setting up an affiliate program, but not a majority of them can confidently say they only had luck.

Anyone who is successful in this kind of business would say he worked hard to get to where he is right now. Success in affiliate marketing takes time and hard work, but its worth it.

Building A Website

If you are planning to start an affiliate program, one of the things you have to consider is having your own website, not just an ordinary website but a professional looking one. How do you build an affiliate marketing website? What are the easy steps to build one?

First, you must have already decided on the theme or niche of your website. It would be better if you already have an idea what products or services to promote as this would help you plan the design and lay-out of your web pages. The next thing to do is to choose a domain name and get it hosted. The domain name is a unique name used to label the actual address of your website on the Internet.

Choosing A Domain Name

In deciding what domain name to register, look into the type of products you are endorsing and the theme of your site. Having the right keywords in your domain name would give you better chances of drawing more visitors to your website. Also, choose a top-level domain or extension, such as.com because it is more popular. In selecting your web host, consider the security of servers and up time guarantees.

Start Creating Your Website

Now, you can start creating your web pages. Dont be disheartened when you know very little in this field. There are page generation tools and fast launch sites available online; you just have to search for them. Countless online sources could help you build an affiliate marketing website, though you might need time to study and learn the whole process.

This is one of the reasons why your site or the products you are going to promote must match your interest. Building your marketing website for the first time would be a lot more fun if you know very well the theme of your site. If you dont have time to make your own website, you can use templates or purchase readily available websites. The latter, however, is a more expensive option.

Creating an affiliate website on your own would be cheaper and more interesting. In the process of building your website, you may also increase your knowledge in Information Technology and the use of computers, software and the Internet.

As you educate yourself in these fields, you are increasing your advantage against other affiliate marketers. It helps a lot, though, if you already know the basics in web page development like programming languages and graphics software because you can make your site extra corporate-looking, more convenient to use or easier to navigate.

Furthermore, if you are knowledgeable and skillful in this area, you can already concentrate more on the content of the page rather than the design.

Build A Website

High Quality Content

The key to draw visitors to your website is to have high quality content; thus, the next thing you must pay attention to in building your marketing website is this. There may be several other factors that contribute to the success of your affiliate marketing site, but a good content tops the list.

This is precisely the reason why users choose to enter your site. They want to get information and so when they dont find it, they would definitely go elsewhere. Write interesting articles related to your theme as this would make them frequent your site.

Finding Affiliate Programs

If you have already looked for affiliate programs that complement your site, add links to the business sites and other very good informative sites. Links contribute to how well you will be listed in major search engines as well. Also, create pages for the products you are endorsing, but dont just promote the products by putting hyped-up ads. Keep your readers interested by injecting lots of relevant and useful information.

This would make them click the link to the business site and buy the product. Remember that no good content means no frequent visitors, no sales and ultimately, no commission.

 

Keep It Simple 

Make your site simple yet not without a touch of class in order to make it appear more of a business website rather than a personal website. This would be pleasing to the eyes and more interesting to browse.

To help you with the design, you can check some successful online stores to get an idea on how you can make your site look better. Make sure you dont place too many banner ads since these could distract some site users; and thus, instead of clicking your ad, they might just leave your site and look for other interesting websites.

After all, banner ads are not the only means of advertising your products. Now your website is complete, submit its URL to major search engines to increase your traffic.

Learn About keywords

Grow from where you started. Learn about the use of keywords for search engine optimization and apply them in your content. Update your site regularly or add new web pages. Make sure to inform your prospects about the latest updates in your site.

You can use newsletters to accomplish this. The Internet offers a huge source of information about just anything, make use of it. Continue to educate yourself on how to improve your website and soon you’ll find yourself successful in affiliate marketing.

How I Did It

The way i was able to build a website with no experience at all was to use the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I was able to build a website instantly. I needed to add my own style over time which can be an enjoyable part of building a website.

I will leave a link to the platform i use. There is no credit card required, it is free to join no strings attached. You can get a feel if affiliate marketing is for you. Try before you dive in deeper. You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain.

Would love to hear your thoughts about this post or this site in general, and I will answer all the comments on my website personally so drop me a line below if you have any affiliate marketing questions or comments. I’m happy to help any way that I can.

  1. Great article and very informative! I am a member of WA and can honestly say that I love it! I have learned so much from their training as well as the members sharing their experiences. I am using WordPress for my websites and have found the free versions to be fine for my needs. I noticed you didn’t mention WordPress and was wondering if you feel it is better to use another source? I know nothing about coding, etc. so I didn’t think it was possible for me to build a site on my own. What are your thoughts? You have definitely provided people with a basic plan for starting an online business. Anyone considering doing this is sure to benefit from your suggestions. Great article and keep up the good work! 

    • Hello, 

      Thank You for reading my post. 

      Appreciate the comments. 

      I also am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and use WordPress as part of my premium package.

      I am very happy with WordPress and recommend it highly. 

      I will revisit my post and insert WordPress in to it. 

      Regards Shane.

  2. Hi there,

    Thank you for a highly informative post on internet marketing having a website of your own, 

    It covers the essential details of affiliate marketing.

    I built a website at WA. The cool experience I remember is in front of my eyes, the website was built in ~30 seconds! I will never forget that. I am not a tech person by any chance. This unique experience made me upgrade from free to premium membership.

    In my case, I took several weeks to come with a niche. Then comes the domain name selection which is the key. It took me a while to decide-should I go for a really narrow or broad name. 

    Researching keywords has been a challenge to find a profitable keyword for solving peoples problem and knock out profits. 

    But it worthwhile to take the pain, learn, enjoy and hopefully be successful, not overnight but over some time.

    Sure enough-joining WA free is a great option to start and get experience.

    • Hello Anusuya,

  3. It’s really easy to build a site with WordPress nowadays especially with the one-click installation technology. A few years ago, I wasted $600 on a program that claimed to build a site that can rank on Google. It was a con job because, after a few days, I didn’t hear from them anymore. If only I have known about WordPress earlier, I would have started blogging as soon and take advantage of all the opportunities present in the affiliate marketing world. 

    • Hello Cathy, 

      Thank You for reading my post.

      There are many scammers out their, you have to find a suitable marketing platform.

      Regards Shane.
