    Im about to start on another site and have a few questions.

    Do most of you feel it is necessary to use datafeeds or can a site with information and a few product links work just as well?

    I can do html but am not real versed in php or some of the other more advanced site building languages.

    Umm...no, because most affiliates prefer to keep their sites private to prevent copyiing and most have their own individual style of marketing.

    The best suggestion would be to just browse Google and you'll soon come up with a heap of affiliate sites in various genres.

    Don't copy what they do, adapt and develop your own style, this is very important.
    Under NO circumstance copy anyone's website or else you'll end up in a lot of hot water, in trouble with the merchants and networks and shunned by other aff's.

    Just spend a few days browsing, getting the feel of the various styles marketers use to flog products.
    By then you'll have an idea of what it's all about and should feel ready to develop your own style.
    You should also spend some time and read all the threads on ABW regarding Search Engines, Hints and Tips and various other threads.

    It's all here, it's just a matter of digging.

    If this all sounds a little obtuse, it's because we've done the hard yards, put in lots of hours, even years to the point where we make a comfortable living and not many aff's would be willing to share their secrets with a potential competitor.
    If we wanted to do that we could write another "How to" book.

    You'll get all the help you need here but you won't be spoonfed, if you get my drift.

    I'm sorry if it's not the answer you were looking for, but the biggest step you'll ever take is the first one.

    Just start, once you've got something together put it in site review, you'll get lots of advice from members there.

    Every success to you in 2004

    Even better... Find a need that isn't being fulfilled and fulfill it. Then find some affiliate programs that people using your site would find useful and integrate them into your site.

    There are tons of examples that have already been done:

    <UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Coupon sites to help shoppers get a good deal.<LI>Digital Camera reviews with links to digital camera merchants.<LI>Price comparison sites for books with links to book merchants.<LI>Gardening tips with links to gardening merchants.<LI>Golf tips with links to golf equipment and golf magazine merchants.<LI>Travel information sites with links to travel merchants.[/list]The possibilities are endless. Try to come up with something new, and you'll do much better.
