    Unhappy How to build an affiliate website
    Hello guys,

    II am new here. I have been thinking of promoting affiliate products online for some time now.
    My only drawback is that i do not know how to build an affiliate website, i want to build an affiliate website using a website builder because i am not well versed with the coding language..
    Which is the best affiliate website builder to use to build a content website?

    I like the process Shawn Collins recommends at The Extra Money Answer - Make Money Online with Affiliate Marketing

    He walks you through setting up a WordPress based marketing platform on a domain you own.

    It's practical, it works and the price is right.

    Yeah Wordpress is definitely the way to go if you're not familiar with coding. My site is very customized and required detailed programming not available in Wordpress. So I had to contract some of the work to a web development team. But I have been using that opp to learn the code they write and create some pages myself. It's not that bad if you're willing to do a little homework and watch a few how-to vids on the topics. Good luck!

    You can go ahead with wordpress or open cart. Both are very user friendly and easy to understand and use. Take some online classes for initial stage of website development. There are many videos on you tube which will give you step by step instructions on both. Both of them do not require any coding.

    Good Luck...!!!

    There are lots of website builders, which one can use. The issue is to choose the appropriate one. Back in the day, I came across webbuildersguide.com. The perfect service.

    Make sure you do the self hosted Wordpress version. You are not allowed to use affiliate links on the basic Wordpress.com subscription. This may be obvious but since you are new to affiliate, I wanted to make sure it is clear. Hostgator is a good place to start with hosting

    3-6 contain good advice, but NOT 1 and 2. If your home page is just one big solicitation to sign up, you're doomed to failure. Make it full of interesting and original information so that visitors will be aching to know how to get more and more from you, thus want to sign up. And, popups are seldom if ever a good idea.

    I would have agreed with that for years, but unfortunately, that has now changed. Since they got rid of Fantastico, downloading WP through Hostgator is MUCH more difficult and cumbersome, and help from reps has been sketchy and not always correct.

    I stopped and started a post in response to the comment about HostGator several times. I'll say this ... do a search, research your host. It's critical.

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Wordpress is what I use. I buy hosting through Blue Host, domain names through name cheap and use Wordpress to easily create a nice looking website. Good luck!

    Going with Wordpress is probably the best decision.

    I use it on my own websites as well...

    I do have a question, though, for everybody here:

    Have you used website builders such as Yola, Webs or Wix for your affiliate campaigns ? Would you recommend them ?

    You may use any webbuilder as well as website template. Templates are easier variant. I like website templates based on Joomla. Last time I have chosen one from here: templatemonster . Good luck!

    Wordpress it the way to go! WP is the answer for site building 98% of the time.

    You probably want to know what your site is about first though.
