How to Build a Website for Affiliate Marketing?
For those of you who would like to get started but the thought of how to build a website for affiliate marketing is preventing you from taking the first step, fret not. Building a website is not that complicated. Like so many websites built on WordPress, I would recommend you to use WordPress as well.
There is actually no coding skill required. I have written an e-book and in there I have also recommended an additional guidebook which you can purchase for a small price if you really want to know in more depth about WordPress and its various functionalities.
Basic Website Elements Explained
My e-book gives you a quick tour of how to build up a simple website with the aid of some available videos on YouTube. All of you will know that in its simplest form, a website with static pages will comprise typically: Home Page, Products Page, About Page and Contact Us Page. It is actually very easy to build up such a website. If you are totally new to this, it takes some efforts around domain name registration, web hosting and learning WordPress as the Content Management System.
If this still looks complex, you are in luck and I am going to point you to something you would love to simplify this even further.

Do You Need a Fanciful and Professional Website
There are over 1 billion websites out there! There are many websites which are beautifully designed. So you may ask if your website needs to resemble those. The simple answer is no. While a beautiful website (see apple.com) designed with care by graphics designer and front-end engineers are definitely captivating, contents are more more important for Affiliate Marketing websites.
People search for information on Google and they are trying to find solutions to problems they have. When they land in your website, you add value by providing the information they require. Of course, your website should still be properly organized, neatly designed but it does not have to be fanciful. Contents make all the difference.
Doing Affiliate Marketing through Facebook Page
While it is possible to do affiliate marketing through a Facebook page, a well designed website is the fundamental key component of Affiliate Marketing. I like to use Facebook and other social media platforms like Google+, Twitter as additional marketing outreach tools that can be associated with your website.
A website is like your physical storefront. You use it to build up your business, your brand and what you are offering to users. Of course building up the basic structure of the website is only the first step. You need to bring in the goods, the inventory. You need to build up your contents. After that, you need to get people to come to your store which is equivalent to driving traffic to your website.
With good contents, additional things like Search Engine Optimization need to be carried out. A website has to be progressively nurtured and it takes time and thus it is important to get the right elements in place.
I hope some resources here are going to be useful to users of this website.
