The best way to build affiliate sites is a popular question amongst Internet marketers these days. When most marketers go to build affiliate sites, they are looking for a medium that will build the site quickly and easily, but also give them full functionality. After all, a good affiliate site has a lot of features, and while most of them are simple, neglecting them can be the difference in a cash cow and a dud.
As an affiliate marketer, I have tried plenty of different site creation platforms, including XSitePro 2, Dreamweaver, iWeb, SquareSpace, Tumblr, Weebly, and Site Rubix, and have largely been dissatisfied by all of them. None of them provided me with the golden ratio of being easy and feature rich that I was looking for.
And then I found WordPress.
These days, WordPress is quickly becoming a preferred method of site creation for sites of all kinds, not excluding affiliate sites.
WordPress has essentially made creating fully-functional sites as simple as creating a blog. To my delight, no HTML or CSS coding is necessary (however knowledge of it can only help you). You can design and manage your site from any internet-enabled computer anywhere.
WordPress starts out simple, but getting any feature you need is easily attainable, and is no more complicated than installing a plugin.
Getting your site to look just right is no different. You can easily download and install themes that give your site a sense of professionalism that will instill trust in your users.
