Build Affiliate Marketing Stores with Templates + Software

Develop your own unique Online Store with this hands-on course specially designed with the beginner in mind, complete with unique created downloadable software and tools that can be used time and again (a valuable resource for you).

Course Outline

  • Introduction to the Amazon Affiliate program and how to find your perfect niche-market.
  • Set up a self-hosted WordPress website to build on. No experience necessary but I also have extra WordPress training available on request.
  • Learn to build an affiliate Store with templates and software, using a "test" WordPress site on a sub-domain (a way of setting up WordPress for free).
  • Transform the example affiliate store into something that's unique to you.

If you are looking at a way of generating extra income or want to learn about affiliate marketing, this course will put you in a winning position with very little work.

WordPress is by far the most popular website builder on the internet today.  I'll take you through getting your first WordPress website up and running, and show you how to start affiliate marketing with ease by offering products through professional shopping pages.

WordPress makes it easy for beginners to get results fast, and with my special templates you'll have your own website up and running in a matter of hours, saving you weeks or months of work.

Important Notes

The full version of WordPress that we will use needs to be hosted with a hosting service provider.  For the purpose of the course I will show you how to set this up on a free service, but to get the most benefit you will need to purchase a domain name (around $10) and a hosting service (from a few dollars per month). 

I suggest you use the free service to complete the course, then you'll be more equipped to decide on a Domain Name and hosting.

This course will give you the foundations to build an affiliate marketing business with WordPress, and show you how to use WordPress to create professional websites using a template designed specially for the purpose.

The course concentrates on Amazon US affiliate products and tools.  Other Amazon stores may not use the same tools. You don't have to be based in the US to have an Amazon US affiliate account.

The websites you create are very flexible and can be used for a number of different purposes including promoting products and services, affiliate marketing and showcasing.

Who is the target audience?
  • This hand-on course is aimed at beginners who want to earn extra income from affiliate marketing
  • Anyone thinking of building an online business
  • No experience with websites, wordpress or affiliate marketing is necessary
  • Closed Caption available on request
