How to Make a Website – Using WordPress Platform


WordPress Website

WordPress Website

OK, lets start.  One essential skill you need to master in the affiliate marketing business is knowing how to make a website.  In today online business is a must.

Reasons why:

  1. It can save you money because you will not need to hire web developers and web designers.
  2. You will be able to follow  “the market trends” and add new products or subjects to your website without using a programmer skills.
  3. Since you will not need a consultant developer for your website, this will enable you to build almost things yourself (of course within reason).

One item to keep in mind is that You  can learn how to make a website.  This in turn gives way to an awesome website for your online affiliate marketing business  –  all on your own. 

Themes

Of course having a great tool like WordPress gives you and your visitors an industry standard. You and your website will be taken seriously.

WordPress will provide the technical and support for your website/blog. You will be able to choose from the build-in “themes” templates and design.  Your website will look professional immediately.  Premium themes have support desk, update, setup, maintenance and upgrades regularly.   Free themes lack updates, support desk and can leave you vulnerable to hackers.

Plugins

WordPress Website

Keep in mind that more is not always the best way to go.  Too many plugins can slow your website down and can cause code conflicts.  Visitors only give you a few minutes of their time. Keep it to the essentials: functionality, email capture, social media sharing, analytics and website performance.

Images

So with images and photos for your website I recommend the following:  take your own photos.  Use your phone to take a photo of the image or create the photo from your surrounding.  As a newbie it  can be hard on the budget to pay for images. I set my search the following way: royalty free illustration of ________ ( the name of keyword or product or item).  I also take the illustrations image and bring them in to “Paint app” and re-color or add a little something to it (see top image).

  3. You have done a great job at simplifying a very complex task.

    WordPress is a really great tool and can be setup relatively quickly and there are loads of tutorials for beginners to follow so most people won’t get stuck.

    I like the idea you shared with finding graphics.

    Good idea. Most people think they can just use any graphics online, but that’s a big no!

    I have played a little bit with Jaaxy, but will look at it again as I have some good reports about it.

    Question, do you know where Jaaxy gets it’s data from?

    Is it Google data and if yes what makes Jaaxy different from using Google?

    Look forward to hearing back from you on this as Jaaxy has caught my interest.

    Great job

    • Hi Tim,

      Thank you so much for visiting my website and your comments.

      Glad to know that you enjoy my article. I did write an article on Jaaxy  entitled: A Gold Mine Tool to use! Jaaxy

      here is the link: https://theaffiliatemarketingf

      As for your questions – Where does Jaaxy get it’s data from? – it collects its data from the 3 major engines: Google,  Yahoo and Bing. And your other question – Jaaxy takes the gather data and presents it in a more suitable way for the individual that is searching for the niche, keyword or phrase keyword (us).

      Sure hope you get a change to visit my website again and maybe read the article on Jaaxy or any other article that you may find interesting.

      Again, thank you for your visit and for sharing your thoughts with me.

      Very best on your online endeavors,

    Thanks for the writeup.

    • Hi Zuchi,

      Thank you for visiting my website and your comment.

      I agree with you WordPress does provide good features and the learning curve is good for newbies and experience affiliate marketers .  It is always a good thing to do and learn thing for your business that way you know what to expect if you decide to out source any item. . I am glad that WA can provide certain tools and resources with the membership.  I think it would be more costly.

      Very best on your online endeavors,
