Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step

Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step



Hi everyone today I'm going to be walking you through how to make an affiliate marketing website with Wix now typically I would recommend WordPress for affiliate marketing and that's because the SEO or search engine optimization allows you to rank on Google easier however this has changed Wix is now getting really good at search engine optimization so you can start ranking on the first page of Google with a Wix website this changes a lot now in this tutorial I'm going to walk you through every single step on screen recording so you can follow along and by the end of the tutorial you'll have your own affiliate marketing website now the beauty of Wix is you can actually get started completely for free and then once you decide you want to go forward with the website you can either keep it free or you can upgrade to a premium plan I'll walk you through all of this but by the end of it you'll be able to connect your own domain name and you have a full affiliate marketing website so without further ado let's get right in the computer alright so now that we're in the computer the very first thing we need to do is go to Wix calm or if you want to support me and if this video turns out to really help you you can use my Wix referral code it cost you nothing extra but I help support me and it allows me to make more tutorials like this so if you want to use that referral code it's just wwp i le forward slash new Wix website and the Wix is capital now if you use this link it'll be the same as going to Wix calm except the Wix will give me credit down the road now I don't get paid to make these videos so this referral link is what supports future tutorials so if you want to use that thank you in advance and I'm just going to go through as if we were to use this so once we either come to Wix or we use this link here we can either just hit start now or get started either of them just brings us to the next step so we'll hit one of these and it'll just ask you to login so if you are brand new to Wix all you have to do is hit sign up and it's super easy you basically just put in an email and create a password if you already have a Wix account all we have to do is hit login and it'll bring us to our Wix dashboard now if you are brand new to Wix you'll be prompted with no sites here and it'll be a big button that says create your first site so that's what we're going to hit if you already have a Wix account we're just going to come to the top right and do create a new site and now from here it's going to ask what kind of template we want to use so we're going to go straight forward blog which is in the top right corner and then it'll ask us if we want to use the Wix Adi which is artificial intelligence or if we want to choose a template over here now I highly recommend we choose a template over here because that allows us to customize it now if we go with the Wix Adi we answer a few questions and then it puts together a site how it thinks would be best now the issue with that is if you want to start taking things away or changing it it can turn out to be more difficult than if you were to just start with a template so just hit choose template over here now you can choose from these templates and this is what's great about Wix is that you can actually choose these templates and easily customize them with drag-and-drop you don't need any real tech or computer experience here with WordPress it's typically a little bit more difficult and there is a bit of a learning curve because you have to learn how to customize and build that site with Wix it is so easy to make a site now you can come in here and you can pick what kind of blog template you want to go off of and my recommendation is to hover over them and make sure they say free and not something like this that says ecommerce the e-commerce is going to have an online store on it so you will have to pay for that monthly what I recommend is using a free template and this is actually my favorite one over here especially for affiliate marketing sites and I'll explain why as we start to build it so I would recommend the traveler blog but you can scroll through here and you can choose which one you want to use now you have two options when you're hovering over here you can either edit or view so if we were to view them it gives you a preview of what it would look like so if we were to view this one right over here it'll show you what this site will look like and remember you can customize all of this and that's what we're going to do so this is the base template that we're going to build off of and again if you want to choose a different template feel free but this is the one that I highly recommend and this is the one I'm gonna use for this so if you decide that you're viewing a template and you don't want to use that one you can just X out of that tab and it brings you right back to exactly where we were so if we are viewing it and we decide that this is the one that we want to go with all we have to do is hit edit this site right in the top corner and that's what we're going to do and this only takes a second here to load but it's just putting this template together and throwing us into the editor so we can start to customize it and remember this is all completely free to do so you don't have to pay for any of this so this is our template right here and now we can get started customizing it so moving right along now we're going to start customizing the site and building it out to the template we need for affiliate marketing now what's great about this is once we've made this base template we can actually duplicate it .
Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step

so for future affiliate marketing sites down the road it's as easy as one button to duplicate it change the topic and change the articles so before we do that we're going to create the affiliate marketing base template queue so I'm just going to go through the step-by-step and you can follow along with me so the very first thing we're gonna do is click right to the social bar and we're gonna hit the backspace or delete we don't need social here it's not going to be relevant for our affiliate marketing site so we'll delete that right off of there easy as that now the next thing we're gonna do is click on this horizontal menu up top well click it once and then we'll go to layout right here and this little button down here is how are the tabs aligned we'll put them in the center and then we'll X out of that and we'll drag this until it's snapped into the center of the site now you'll notice that if the line doesn't go all the way to the top it's not in a full center of the site its aligned to a different element so make sure that pink line goes all the way to the top just like that all the way almost up to help and it will make sure that it's snapped in the center the other way as well and now we have a centered menu on our site so the next thing we're gonna do is come right up to the home and hit the down arrow now we have all of our pages on the site but we really don't need all of these so I'm going to hit and manage pages and then the about page we're going to hit the three lines and we're actually going to delete this page and I'll explain why in a minute here and then videos we're going to delete as well and then just confirm that and now we're back to our home and we have three pages of blog articles this is exactly what we want and our blog page which is going to be the source of all these articles is hidden so we can leave this exactly how it is so we just have home travel eat and relax now we're going to double click on travel and we're going to change that name to reviews and then we can hit done now eat we're gonna double click there and we'll change that to top lists done and then relax we're gonna double click and we'll change that to education now I'm going to explain why I'm doing all these but first we have to create the template for this just so our site is ready to be built out properly so this is all done we've named all of our pages and we've aligned our menu so we can just hit X right here now at this point we're actually going to be left on the education page since we were working on that last this is where it's going to drop us into so as you can see we're on the education page no longer the homepage now this used to be called the relaxed page so we're just going to double click the header and change that to education and then click off of that will change the page again we'll go to the top lists we'll do the same here double click it top lists and click off and again we're going to do this board reviews double click reviews ok we're off to a great start now so we're going to come back to the home page and from here we're just going to hit save just to keep our progress so in the top right over here we can hit save once and it's going to ask what we want to name the site as of right now so what I'm gonna call it is affiliate marketing and then we can just hit save and continue now no one's going to see this because at the end of this we're actually going to connect it to our custom domain so this is just for us to keep track of so we'll hit save and continue and then we can watch until we get a checkmark up top and that means that our site is saved and then it comes up with a pop up saying that your site was saved so all I'm gonna do is hit do not show this again and hit done right here because when we save it in the future it'll give us a check mark right in a corner so we don't need the pop-up to tell us a second time that it's saved successfully so it's really good practice to get me habit of saving whenever you do some big changes now autosave is turned on so it should save every couple of minutes but sometimes you'll lose internet connection or your computer will crash and if you've been doing a lot of changes and not saving none of that will be saved and you have to do it over again so just get in the habit of saving it as often as you can remember all right so moving right down the home page we're gonna leave this as is for now and then we're going to change these three buttons so remember they used to be called travel eat and relax well now they're called reviews top lists and education so I'm just going to click on the button once and then do change text and this one's going to be called reviews and you can double check because it says it links to reviews so just make sure that these two say the same thing ok we can close out of that well click this one change text and we'll change this to top lists X and then the same down here education and then we can X out of there now when people click on these it'll actually bring them to those pages alright scrolling right down here we're just gonna click on the strip right here and we're actually going to delete this we don't need this so I'm just gonna hit backspace so just click on the background once it'll highlight the strip and you can hit backspace or delete and it'll get rid of it now what I'm going to do to make up for this space right here is I'm actually the zoom out and then it allows us to drag this up here and then just drag this all the way up as high as it goes and it should max out about there because it's hitting the bottom of this element so that's perfect we can just X back out here and I'll bring us back to our site so now we're going to scroll all the way to the bottom here and it'll scroll past some of the blog posts that we're going to make and now we have this footer here to customize so this is actually an Instagram feed and again we don't have that so I'm just going to click on this so it selects make sure that it's selecting only the Instagram feed and hit backspace or delete and then I'm gonna do the same with this because we don't need this we're not connecting Facebook Instagram Pinterest so I'm going to delete that as well and then this is the About section so remember we deleted the whole page that was about me it's because we don't need all of that it's going to be on the footer of all of our pages it gives credibility people can relate and it allows there to be a little bit more trust on the site so the first thing we're gonna do is actually click on this text right here and do edit text and just click off of it select this read more and just delete that because that read more was linking to the full about me page that we don't have anymore so for now that's good we can ex back out of here and just click on this background and actually select all of this so just click over here and drag and cover everything that's down here now once we've done that we can scroll up a little bit and we want to drag all of these elements up to the top and make sure that they're snapped in the center and somewhere around here will work if you're too far up it's going to kind of cut it off so make sure you're not too far up just about right here is where I would put that and then we'll just let go and if you remember before we don't have any social so we can backspace or delete that as well and then we can leave that as is so now we scroll to the bottom click down here and it'll give us this stretch so now we can make this foot or smaller so I'm just gonna stretch it all the way to here and then I'm gonna select this element and hold shift and select this arrow back up to the top select both of those and then just hit the up key a couple times just to bring that so it's not completely at the bottom of the page so now if we hit preview now you can see our footer looks nice and clean this will be at the bottom of every page so no matter where we are people will be able to see this be able to relate and what I love is they can actually join a mailing list so right here they can input their email quicks keeps track of that so now you can start emailing these people as they opt-in so you don't have to add anything extra it's already put on this template completely for free so we'll come back to editor and we really don't need this quick button here it's live chat with a couple other options so I'm just gonna click on that once and hit delete and we'll get rid of that because we don't need to mess with that we don't need live chat or anything on our affiliate site so that's good to go we're gonna hit save just to keep track of our progress and we'll get that checkmark saying everything was saved alright so our base template is built it's ready to go now we don't know what niche we're going to be using this for so we don't know what we're going to be putting in for the about Us section and what we're going to be tailoring the site towards but this is the base template that we're going to use for all of our affiliate marketing sites going forward so remember I said you could duplicate this easily well this is the time to do it .
Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step

so we'll just come right up to site and then we'll hit duplicate site and it'll create a second one back in our dashboard so whenever we log back into our Wix and we're ready to build another affiliate marketing site we can just make a duplicate of this template so I'm going to call this affiliate marketing template and then whenever we come in and we make a new one we'll just duplicate this site and start building off of they're super easy and that's a big perk of using Wix so we'll just hit duplicate and then when we go to my sites or whenever you log into Wix you'll have this template right here and all you'll have to do is duplicate site and then start building off of that new one this will be the template that you don't change but you just duplicate off of and then you can create all of your future sites off of this template so with that being said I'm just going to ex back out of here and come back to our editor here so the templates ready to be customized now it's time to find out what niche we want to go into so to really be successful in affiliate marketing you need a combination of three important things the first one is a good website we just built that and we have the template so we can duplicate it and have good sites going forward the second is a good niche it would be nice to be able to just make a site about whatever we want ranked on Google get traffic and be successful but it really doesn't work like that you have to go in and look at the niches see which ones are saturated and see what kind of keywords we can use and where there's room to rank on search engines get organic traffic and actually have this affiliate marketing work and then the third thing is good content on your site so we're going to move into that in a bit but right now let's tackle the niche part so in order to find a good niche what I like to do is go to a website called kW finder calm and I bookmark this because I use it quite often so you can do the same but it's just kW finder calm it's completely free to use I think they give you two to five free searches per day but then if they cut you off all you have to do is create a free account and you can use any email address for this and then it gives you another two to five searches for the day and it's important to know that each search yields fifteen to thirty different results completely for free so you shouldn't have to pay for a premium membership here now what's important to know is small niches do a lot better than general topics so instead of typing in something like yoga which is very general you could type in yoga mats and then this will tell us everything we need to know about that industry that niche and if we can rank in it now for another example instead of typing in shoes you would type in basketball shoes or baseball shoes soccer shoes even rock climbing shoes see how specific you can get with this so we're gonna type in rock climbing shoes here and then we'll leave anywhere set how that is and we're gonna change this to whatever language we are going to be making our posts in whatever language your site is in that's what you want to put in here because it doesn't make sense if someone can't speak the language or understand your site at all it won't be ranking for them so once we put in the first niche to test and we have our language set will hit find keywords and then once this loads you'll see that you have quite a bit to work with before it starts to blur it out for a paid plan so you should be able to use a free plan with no problem so what we're going to look for here is not all of this information but a couple of things in particular so the very first thing we're looking for is to make sure that the keywords that we're going to try to rank for are in the results and we're not reading things that aren't relevant so rock climbing shoes is exactly what we typed in that should be your first result that one's going to be relevant climbing shoes is relevant bouldering shoes is a different keyword bouldering versus climbing so that's going to be different so we'll disregard that rock shoes probably a little bit too far so just make sure you're getting as close to the three keywords or all the keywords you typed in and you're only looking at the metrics for those ones and not ones that don't relate so that's the first thing we're looking for the second thing is how many searches it gets per month so this column gives us the search volume on a monthly basis and it's actually an average of the last 12 months broken down on a monthly basis so it gives you a good idea we want to make sure that it has at least over 500 searches per month ideally over a thousand that'll give you enough organic traffic to actually bring it to your site and make money knowing that not everyone who comes to your site is going to use the affiliate link and buy something so rock climbing shoes has 14,000 searches per month that's a really good number when we come down climbing shoes 26,000 and then rock climbing shoes sale 589 we could still work with that cheap climbing shoes 808 so we can see that just kind of generally overall the search volume for the keywords that are relevant are well over a thousand so we're going to be set on traffic so the next thing we need to look at which is the most important is if we're going to be able to rank there so that's actually this column right here and what I love about kW finder is it gives you a color too so you don't even really have to look at the numbers you can just look at the colors ideally you want to be 39 or below that means that you'll likely be able to rank on the first page of Google now you can see that this one is a 42 so it's still possible but it's not exactly easy when you start going over the ones that are green those ones are easy to rank for so you should be able to rank on the first page no problem so generally what I look for is 39 or below so when you look at your keywords find the ones that are relevant make sure that they have enough search volume every month and that they are 39 or below if it's something that's in the red or in a dark orange you probably don't want to go with that you want to keep searching over here until you find a niche that is generally green or below 39 now that's how we're going to be finding our niche there's really not that much to this it's just important not to skip this first step a lot of people just go into any niche that they want to without checking to make sure that people are searching for it and you can actually rank in it's not too competitive so once you come on here just test a few niches make sure enough people are searching for it every month and that it's below a 39 generally it's not crucial and just know that you can make multiple affiliate marketing sites so if you find one in a week or a month from now you don't have to delete this whole site you can keep it and create a second one and start ranking in that niche as well so just make sure that you're checking this before you jump into a niche but that's all we're gonna do here for this example we'll go with rock climbing shoes for the niche so now that we figured that out we'll come back to our template on the Wix editor and we'll start to customize it for this niche alright so now it's time to customize this site for rock climbing so the first thing we're going to do is change this background image so just click on the background strip make sure you're not clicking an element here just in the background strip and then change background strip image and then what I love about Wix is you can actually use free stock photos from Wix so it's super easy to customize sites all you do is hit free from Wix and type in what you're looking for so we'll type in rock climbing and as you can see we have quite a few results right here so super easy to do this and we can really pick any of these I'm gonna pick this one because it's someone rock climbing and they have shoes on so that's kind of a perfect fit and then we just hit change background I'll give that a second to load and just like that we have our background now sometimes you run into the common problem of you have white text and a white background or something that's lighter so it's harder to read this so in order to fix that all you have to do is hit settings and then we can actually choose the background color to be something that's dark I'll go with this black over here and then you just bring the opacity down to something like 60 and now you can see that you can read that white text very easily and you still have that background image so leave that .

Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step


how that is and I'm just going to change this to rock climbing now you can set this header text to whatever you want so if you have a name that you want for your site like if it's rock climbing shoes now or rock climbing now whatever it is you can set that here but honestly you just want to make this header text something that's relevant to the keyword or the niche so when someone comes to it from google they see that they've landed on something that is exactly what they were looking for which is rock climbing I might even add shoes here so rock climbing shoes and then everything you need in one place now just something simple like that just so in someone lands here they know that it is congruent with what they were searching for so that's all we're gonna do here I know that sounds very simple but that's really all you have to do you don't have to over complicate it you just want to make sure that when someone comes from google searching for rock climbing shoes and they land on your website it's congruent with what they were searching for and then we'll scroll down here and we'll edit this paragraph right here so these are the three different types of posts we're going to have on the site so in this paragraph we're going to explain what these three are so I'm gonna put in choose a category and learn everything you need to know about rock climbing shoes and now when people read this really quickly they know that these are three categories they can click right into if they end up scrolling past it they'll just bring them to all of our blog posts so it's still a win-win so now we need to adjust these three buttons here so I'm going to click on the image change image and I'm going to go ahead and type in rock climbing again and this one is reviews so I'm just going to pick this one here which has another shoe in it and we'll hit choose image and now we have a background image of something thats related to rock climbing with the reviews on it and we'll do the same thing over here for top lists and education image change image free from Wix rock climbing and I'll pick another one that has someone climbing in it with shoes on that's perfect and then education so we'll change image here same process and as you notice when you start doing this you'll get pretty quick at this so when you come out with a new affiliate marketing site in the future for a different niche you'll be able to go off this base template we created and make the whole site within 10-15 minutes so we're just gonna scroll down and see if I can find one more that has to go with kind of an education theme maybe I'll go with this one right here and we'll choose image and just like that now all the images relate to rock climbing so I really don't like this blue I don't think it goes with the theme so I'm going to hit design and I'm going to customize the design and go to text and then I'm going to change that blue to black and I'm gonna make sure that when you hover over it it doesn't turn blue anymore so I'm gonna make that just a lighter gray so when you hover over it goes from black to lighter gray so you know that it is a button so that's all we have to do there and what I love about Wix is when I come to this one and do design they'll give me that same option of what I just created so I can just select that X out and then I can do it one more time over here and just like that if we were to preview it you can see when you hover over it it turns into a lighter gray so you know that that is a button so we're moving right along here so the whole top of our site is already done and now we just have all of our blog posts right here and the photo right here so I'm going to jump into the footer because the blog post is going to be the last thing that we're going to tackle so I'll go back to editor and I'm going to change about me to about us and here you can type in a general sentence or two at the maximum about what this site does so what the purpose of this site is and really any affiliate marketing niche site is is to recommend the best products in a space so we are here to find and recommend the best rock climbing shoes and I just like to in the header and the footer and things on our homepage to just capitalize whenever you're using your keywords because that tells Google and search engine optimization that's a little bit more important than the rest of the words that are around it so rock climbing shoes we are here to find recommend the best rock climbing shoes on the market comma all in one easy-to-use website so just like that it's something simple it tells people what you do and what the site is all about and then we can just set this image right here so I'm just gonna click on this change image and do the same thing as before and free from Wix rock climbing and I'm gonna use this one because it shows that someone's helping someone else out and that's exactly what we're trying to do here we are trying to recommend the best one to help someone else out so they can make a good decision and we'll just hit choose image and I'm just going to change the crop on this just to get this a little bit more centered so I'm just going to click that little crop button and then we can drag it and we can put that more in the center and just hit apply and that looks a little bit better okay so just below it is this little copyright section and probably created by Wix I don't want the proudly created by Wix on there so I'm going to delete that and then once you have your domain name then you can fill this out so in a bit we're going to connect a domain you can actually pick out what the name of that domain is going to be now that's going to go in here so this is going to end up being the domain name and then just period that's it so you don't have to actually have an LLC for this you don't have to have a separate entity you just put in whatever the website domain is and then you put the year that the website was created so 2019 people get confused by this they think that it has to be the current year so every year you have to come back and change this to whatever the year is you actually do it whenever the website was made and then it's a retroactive so it says that we are protected by the copyright all the way back to here when we made the website and you don't have to register a copyright here actually by creating the original work you're granted an informal copyright without having to do anything else and we're creating the sites ourselves so just by going through here and changing everything it is our original work so just know that that's how you can use this copyright down here and once we have our domain ready we can come back and we can put in the domain name right here and then one more thing.

 I want to do while we're down here is change this color I don't like that teal there again so I'm gonna hit settings and then I'm gonna hit design and button and then I'm gonna change that color to a black and then the border I'm just gonna get rid of the border there and now in my opinion that looks a little bit better so that's that we don't have that blue there anymore and then I'm gonna change this button as well I'm gonna go to design and I'm gonna change that color to a black as well that'll work and that way people can come to the bottom and that of having that light blue that was there before now everything's black it all looks good and our footer looks good and it'll look good on every page so when we go to different pages you can see that the footer still looks exactly the same so as you saw up top here we still have to change the color of these buttons so I'll go back to editor and just remember save your progress as much as you can remember to so I'll hit this menu we'll hit design and then we can change the color of the menu so I'm just gonna hit customize design and we'll do text and I'm gonna leave them on grey for when they're not selected and then when someone hovers over it I want it to turn black and then when it is clicked I want it to be black as well just like that okay that should be good so if we go back to preview now it's gray when you hover over it turns black when you select it it turns black as well that looks pretty good alright so as you can tell the site's coming along pretty quickly we just have a couple more things to do here so back to editor let's jump into these other pages and we'll change the paragraph that's at the top so for reviews I'm just gonna double click this and write just one sentence about what this page is for so I'm going to put find the reviews on the most popular rock climbing shoes to help you make the best decision and we'll just put an exclamation point there so just something that's nice and simple and tells people what you do now this is a little bit too big of a gap for me personally so I'm going to hit the zoom out and I'm just going to drag this up just so it's about even there's an even space here with an even space here likes out of that it looks a bit better alright now we'll just come on to the next page and do the same thing so top lists double click and we'll just change this to Y the top lists are important and how they're going to help people so we've found the best rock climbing shoes and put together our top lists to help you find the best ones for you something again just as simple as that and we're going to zoom out again and we'll just drag this up so it's about even and that's good only one more page to go and now this is the cool one so this is actually education so this is a really important tool for affiliate marketing to get organic traffic to your site this is where we're going to answer common questions that people are asking about rock climbing shoes this gets people on to our site and then they're likely to click on top lists or reviews or the homepage and then find all of our affiliate posts and likely hit one of the links there so here we're going to say find the answers to the most common questions about rock climbing and rock climbing shoes and we'll put an exclamation point at the end there and we'll zoom out and we'll just make it look pretty again so we'll just close this gap a little bit and that's good to go and remember save as often as you can and you'll see that it just auto saved for me there so that's perfect but just always double check that you are saving as you're going okay we're looking really good but now an important thing that we can't skip is we need to make sure that everything looks good on mobile so we're just going to come back to our home page and select the mobile right here what I really like about Wix is you can customize your site independently how it looks on desktop and then.

 How it looks on mobile and that's completely independent so if you change something on desktop it will not affect mobile and vice versa so you can make sure that it looks really good on someone's phone because so many people are using phones nowadays so I'm just going to click mobile and if you get a pop up you can just skip this I'm gonna walk you through it here and now it comes with this custom header but I'm actually going to delete this header so I'm going to delete this menu we don't need it because we don't have a logo we don't have anything we're really using so make that as high up as it can go it won't go away fully so then we're gonna click down and we're actually gonna drag this to the top and just like that we got rid of the header and I'm gonna drag this down a bit I think that nice landing page will look good a big image for someone to land on and then I'm just gonna click this and I'm gonna hold shift and click the one right below it and now I can move these two together and I just kind of want to Center them up to this image and then I might do one more thing and that's to make this a little bit wider just kind of to the edges and then I'm actually going to click on it and hit smaller and see if I can get it to fit on one line and I'm going to keep a little bit so it's not too far to the edges something just like that that looks good and then I'll drag this one out so it's on one line as well and Center them both up and make sure they're not too close and touching so it's hard to read and then I'm just gonna click on both again and Center this on that image again just like that so that's what someone's going to land on it's a nice clean look on your phone and then we can start to customize what we have down here so again you just want to go through here and just kind of stretch these out to make sure that you don't have like lingering drop down words you want to make sure that they look nice and clean so just by doing that make sure that it's centered and that's it for the first two here we'll come down make sure everything's looking good we have our first post here I think there should be a bigger gap between these three categories and the first post so I'm going to click on this and drag it down just a bit here just so it you can tell that these are categories and then these are posts but as you can see the mobile site looks really good and that's a huge benefit of Wix as they make the mobile site look just excellent so as we keep scrolling down here we come to the footer we just make sure that this looks good and as you can see there's a pretty big gap because remember we deleted quite a bit off of here so just scroll all the way to the bottom and click on it and you have this little tab right here and we'll just click and drag it until it comes all the way up and again we just want to format all this to make sure it looks good so I'm just going to drag this down a bit about us is too far up so that makes sense now and I'm actually gonna fit this right over on the right side so we can do this and that looks much better there I'm just going to click this and then hold shift and click the other elements.
Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step

 So I can move them altogether and then drag this up just about there make it's all centered and the last thing is we can put this right underneath and our back to the top button we can put here as well now there aren't specific places that you have to put all these you can customize it until it looks good to you and that's what we're going to use and again remember just to drag this down don't put this all the way at the bottom because it'll make it hard to click so just drag it down a little bit more so you have enough space for someone to click that with their thumb so that's all we have to do here this all looks good and now just save it remember save as often as you can and we'll go to our other pages and make sure they look good as well so this all looks good all I'm going to do is maybe bring that up a little bit that was ten clicks so just ten clicks to keep in mind when we do the other ones we can bring them up ten clicks as well and everything will be even this won't change because we set that on the other page so we're already set on the footer we don't have to mess with that anymore and we'll go to top lists we'll click on this and go up ten clicks easy enough and then education ten clicks and that's it for the formatting everything looks good and then these blog posts will automatically format and look good as we start to make them so let's save that and the site is technically done now all we have to do is start putting content on here so what I want to do is come back to desktop and go over how we actually make this content there is a specific way to do this so I want to make sure that we're walking through this together and go through it step-by-step so you know how to do this going forward what I'm gonna do is walk through making one of these posts from start to finish and then after you watch this tutorial you can go back and you can start to make more ideally you want to have 30 posts on the site so you can split that up into ten reviews ten top lists ten education you can do twenty education and then five and five split this up any way you like but once you reach 30 posts on a site Google sees your site as a full site and no longer a new site so when you start to release new content it'll start to be populated into Google search engine a lot faster because you are a full site no longer a new site now if you do only make ten posts on the site that's fine and you'll probably still get traffic to it but I like to set thirty as that goal and then once I reach thirty I consider that site more of a done site and then I move it to the back burner if I come up with ideas for posts in the future I always come back and maybe add a post here and but once I've reached 30 I no longer touch the site typically so set that as your goal if you don't reach 30 that's no problem but just know that that's a really good number to aim for so now let's get into that last really important thing number three and that's great content on your site okay so this shouldn't take long from here on out but the things that I'm going to cover now are extremely important we made the site look good everything's ready to go but creating the content and the affiliate offers are extremely important so anything that I say here just take notes feel free to pause go back or ask me any questions if you get a little bit confused so the first thing we need to do is go to Amazon Associates so I'm going to open a new tab and go there now you can just type this into Google and it will bring you to their site here and Amazon Associates is the name of Amazon's affiliate program now a lot of times you're going to hear people say to use Clickbank and promote those affiliate offers because they pay commissions as like 100 200 300 dollars but trust me when I say start with Amazon Associates now even if you are getting fifty thousand people to your site using Amazon Associates can be a lot better than using something like Clickbank now not to get too much into detail here but my reasoning is on Clickbank a lot of the times they have high commissions but the product is not that good so once someone comes to your site and they use your link and they purchase it you get $100 it feels awesome but when the product is not good which is most of the time one of two things is going to happen either they're going to get a refund and then you lose that hundred dollars in affiliate commission or they're never gonna come to your site again and you ruin your reputation with that website visitor now if you use Amazon's associate program when someone uses your link they go to Amazon Amazon has a reputation to uphold and they're known for having good products so with that being said using Amazon for the affiliate program is an excellent decision over using something like Clickbank where the product might not be that good now another added bonus is if someone clicks your Amazon affiliate link and goes to Amazon they don't purchase the shoes they X out of it they go out to dinner then they come back on anytime within 24 hours and they purchase anything on Amazon you get an affiliate commission on that so although when you create the link on Amazon and put it in these blog articles that link is good forever but when someone clicks on it it sets a cookie on the computer so anything they purchase in the next 24 hours after clicking linked on Amazon you will get a commission on so if they click your link and they don't buy anything and then they come back the next day and they purchase a vacuum cleaner for $300 you're going to get commission on that $300 vacuum cleaner so a lot of people using the Amazon Associates program have what I like to call accidental success where people click their links they don't purchase the product but they purchase something else and as the affiliate marketer you're going to get paid on that anyways so that's why I really recommend using Amazon Associates program as opposed to Clickbank so all we have to do here is login if you already have an account which would be awesome if not you can just hit join now for free and then it'll ask you to log into your Amazon account if you don't have an Amazon account you can create one it's super simple and then you'll go through kind of a short application for Amazon Associates now something that's very important is it's going to ask for your website so if you already have a personal website with a following whether that's on YouTube whether that's wherever that is you can use that website however what I recommend doing is using that website that we're building right now because it looks good and Amazon is going to know this is going to be for affiliate links that's perfect for Amazon they're going to get traffic straight to their Amazon site for these kinds of products so right now we really don't have a link that we can put in here so now what we need to do is purchase the domain and again all of this is extremely important so make sure you stay with me here so purchasing the domain is the website name that's what you see up top now if you go to your Wix website that we're creating right now it's on a free website so they don't give us a domain that we would want to use when you publish this and I'm just going to do this you can do this any time it doesn't really matter it's not consequential this is the site name so it's this long username followed by affiliate marketing that's not what Amazon wants to see that doesn't look very good so what we need to do is actually purchase a domain can hit upgrade now on your Wix site and it'll bring you to the different plans every single paid plan allows you to connect a domain and it even gives you the first year for free so any of these that you choose is going to allow you to have that custom website name now briefly to go over this it doesn't matter which one you go with you're not going to need a business or e-commerce plan so any of the website ones is going to be fine the combo and the unlimited are the two that I would recommend for you especially if you're just getting started now 99% of my sites or on the unlimited and then some are on the business or e-commerce plan but I never go with the combo and that's for one reason it only gives you two gigabytes of bandwidth now bandwidth is how many people can be on your site at once and how fast that's going to load for them you only get two gigabytes of it on the combo plan for an extra couple dollars per month you get unlimited bandwidth it's going to load very quickly for however many people are on the site that's a huge upgrade the storage doesn't really matter we're not putting a ton of photos on the site so we don't have to worry about that comes down to the bandwidth the faster your site loads the higher up search engines are going to rank you and we want to be on the first page so I recommend the unlimited plan the price varies depending on what kind of deal they have going on but 17 is a great price anything under 20 is a great price for the unlimited and it gives you the first year of your domain completely for free after that it's about 15 bucks for the domain name so I know a lot of people will get to this point and be like oh well I have to pay monthly I'm not gonna do it well that's the reason that the people who do do it succeed because people get this far and they realize there's actually an expense and they won't go through with it so all I have to say is if you're actually competing in this space you're going to do well .
Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step

So I encourage you to go with a plan you can start with a combo if you want or you can go with the unlimited but I highly recommend you to do it and then it'll give you the free domain and remember you always have a 14 day money back guarantee they'll give you all your money back no questions asked but once you select one of these you'll be able to pick your domain and then once you have that domain from Wix then you can put it in the application on Amazon whether you've put content on this site or not so even if you don't have any posts ready on this site that shows Amazon that you're serious it shows them that you're not just messing around and you want to make an account and not really do anything with it it shows them that you're serious you've purchased the domain you have the real website it's customized it looks good whether you have content on it yet or not they're going to assume that you're going to be filling out that content if you've already put in the money to make the site and you're applying for Amazon Associates so that's what I would recommend you do and that will increase your chances of being accepted by Amazon Associates so that's the first step is you have to get accepted to Amazon Associates now it should take a couple days until they get back to you and say that you're accepted but once you're accepted this is where everything becomes amazing so now when you go back on to Amazon you will have this little banner at the top that's called a site strike so no matter what product you're on all you have to do is hit get a text link and it'll give you an affiliate link to that product so now you can easily create Amazon affiliate links to send someone to Amazon I remember when they click on that even if they don't buy the product and they buy something else you will get paid a commission so now it's time to find some products in our niche so we're gonna type in rock climbing shoes and to see what we have available so my biggest piece of advice here is you do not have to buy these actually get them in your hand and wear them and use them to review them what I like to do is go off of other people's reviews you don't want to judge it on what the company is saying about the products because they're going to say it's amazing it does all this it does all that you want to know in the reviews on Amazon what people are saying once they've received it and they've tried it and hundreds of reviews and then you get a general consensus when was the last time that a hundred people who reviewed a product were wrong it doesn't typically happen so that's the beauty of this is you can go through here you can find different products and read the reviews so just basing on this there's only four reviews four reviews none and these are all sponsored anyways so when we come down here we can start to see the real products that we might be promoting so 249 reviews and it looks like it's a 4.5 out of 5 that's going to be an excellent product to put on our site somewhere and then when you keep scrolling through you can find other ones 26 161 these are all going to be good products so when we come back to our site here we need to look at what kind of categories of products we have so we have reviews we have top lists and then education which isn't really going to have affiliate links in it it's gonna have more of just getting people to our site so reviews and top lists so first and foremost will make review posts so we'll come over here and we'll go through the products I like to go with the ones that have the most reviews and the best reviews and then we'll click on those and first things first is we're going to get a text link and get a short link there short links and full links full links are just way longer so we're going to go with short links for everything here and then we'll just make sure that we can copy all of that and now we have that saved so we're going to use this link in the post that we're about to create and when someone clicks on that it'll bring them right here on our affiliate link so now that we've got that copied we're going to come back to our Wix website editor so if you come up to home and we go to blog is the hidden page but what's going to be the source of all of our articles spread out through reviews and top lists and we click in here and we do manage posts this is where we're gonna start creating our posts so the first thing we're gonna do is change the author name so you want this ideally to be the domain name of your website so if that's for example rock climbing shoes now if that was the domain that we bought then that's what we'll put as the author but for this I'm just gonna put rock climbing shoe expert because I haven't bought a domain in this example so that's good so when it starts to show up as the author of who wrote the post it's going to show up as that but ideally you want it to show up as your website domain and now we have the Articles that already come pre-made as examples for this site so what we're going to do is just delete these because we really don't need these so just go through here and just delete all these okay once these are all deleted we have a clean slate to work off of here so now we're going to come down to categories and we're going to edit these so remember we had eat travel and relax well we want to edit these and change them to reviews and category title is reviews and then we'll save that and then we'll change this one to top lists and I'm just gonna copy that paste it down here we'll save that and the last one is education so now when we create posts we can set the category of what that post is and then it'll go into that page so when someone clicks on the review page it'll show all the review posts and when someone clicks on the education page it'll show all the education posts answering questions the same with top lists so the categories are how we decide where that post is going to show up if it's a review post if it's a top list post but this hidden blog page that we're on here that no one's going to be able to see is like the database where all of these blog posts are going to be pulled from okay so now we go into actually making the post so go to manage posts and then we'll go to create new post and this is where all the magic happens so we're going to be using this as our post here so I'm going to copy this link come back over here and I'm gonna paste it down here just so we don't lose it this is going to be the Amazon affiliate link that goes to this product and the first thing I always do is just paste it in this article just so I know that I always have it as reference if I need it again so since this is going to be the first review post we need to start collecting some information about these shoes so what I like to do is go to 250 customer reviews now we're going to find out what these shoes are really about so what we want to do is scroll through here and spend a good 5-10 minutes collecting kind of the general consensus of people and you'll find that people are saying the same things about the same feature so for this example it could be that they grip really well they're good for people with wide feet they're really comfortable they don't wear out easily things like that and that's what we're going to look for and also look for the negatives as well you don't want all of these review posts to be only good things people like to see that there are negatives to products but it could be a very small negatives like I've had these for three years and they just started to wear out like that's a good thing people will like that but you putting that honesty in your review post says a lot about you and builds that trust and credibility when someone's reading it so what I always do is come through here and start to scroll through and see what people are saying so it's going to take 5 to 10 minutes but you're gonna collect information about what people really think about these shoes after they've gotten them and they're leaving a review now something to keep in mind is if the review seems way too good to be true it could be a fake review that is something that happens on Amazon so you can't believe everything you read but that's why we spend 5 to 10 minutes here going through looking at a lot of reviews so you don't get a skewed bias based on fake reviews so this is where we're going to get the content for our post and another good spot is writing these questions right here so you can see are these good for tree-climbing you can just add these kind of things into your post so I'm going to spend the next five to ten minutes going through here and collecting good information and putting together a post and then I'll check back in with you in a second and show you what I wrote about all right guys I'm back it's been a few minutes now and I just finished creating the first review post for that product that we found on Amazon over here just taking what people were saying about it reading all of that and I took a screenshot of the photo here or you can find a photo somewhere and I took a screenshot of this photo here to use in the post and that's what you see right up top here and a couple important things to talk about is the fur thing is this photo before I get too far is you want to link it to your Amazon affiliate link to that product and make sure that it opens in a new tab so if someone just clicks this photo it'll take them to Amazon to the product in a new tab so they won't be thrown off your website your website will still be in another tab and it'll be on your Amazon affiliate link so you got to click you're good to go so that's if they just click the image which is great so we want to make sure we have that set this one to add a caption that goes away once you publish it and then the first thing I always do is get your pair on Amazon here and then put the affiliate link and make sure that when you put the link in you highlight it all and then you make sure that it is in fact linked up and open in a new tab so make sure that that's set and then you basically just write about the shoe so you can screenshot this you can pause this video and you can use this post as a template but it's just a short post talking about the main features and things that people were saying about the shoe that's about it and then at the end get your pair on Amazon here again I put that at the top and the bottom so there's two calls to action and then I highlight I always do this I highlight the name of the shoe and then I link it to the Amazon affiliate link and again open in a new tab and then since this product had 4.5 stars and hundreds of reviews that was one of the most out of all the climbing shoes I put best climbing shoes and then I linked that to the Amazon affiliate link as well but this is really all you have to do here don't overthink it just write out what people are saying about it you are providing value because you're going through all the reviews finding out what people actually say about it and putting it into one easy to read post this is saving people time instead of someone having to go onto Amazon look through all the different shoes and then read all of the reviews like you do you're spending five to ten minutes on each one of these and then putting down basically the summary of what people are saying that saves people time that's enough for people to come on here stay on your site read reviews of products and then click on it and then it costs them nothing extra they go purchase it as they normally would and then you get the commission or if they buy that three hundred dollar vacuum cleaner you're gonna get commission as well but that's it for the post and then I put the title of the shoe this is what came straight from Amazon and I just put that title right there and then for the image all you have to do is just click and then decide where you want the image to be so I just did this so it was above it was the first thing and then all you have to do is click an image you can add it right there you're not going to want to use the free front wicks you're gonna want to make sure you do a screenshot or save that image or something so someone knows that it's the same one as the one over on Amazon but once this is ready to go just hit post settings and hit categories and drop that in the reviews category and then make sure you hit save and then we'll scroll down to the bottom and publish it now we have our first post it's in the reviews category and now if we go to our blog and we go to the home page and we scroll down we can see our first post is right there this image I'm probably going to recrop so it's not cutting it off like that that's not the best look for it but then when we go to our reviews page and we click down here on our custom feed we go to settings and we choose our category we can go from all posts to reviews BAM there it is right here on our reviews and make sure everything's saved when we come over to top lists all we have to do here is change this settings choose category this one will be the top lists see we haven't made a top list one so there's nothing there yet come over to education we'll switch this one over to education and that way whatever category we're putting that post into it shows up on that page and what I love about this is the home page is set on all posts so it'll just have everything right on the home page but then people want something specific they can click on the tabs up top switch that to education and they can go to the page to find out the information that they want okay guys so that's how you make the posts there's really not that much to it just make sure that you're setting the category and it's going into the right page and then something that's really really really important is to know the time frame so on average it takes about 35 weeks for a new post to get about peak traffic level so the full amount of traffic that it's going to be receiving going forward and technically it's about 90 percent of peak traffic so within 35 weeks you'll be at basically the full amount of traffic that that post is going to be getting so if you make all 30 of your posts in the first week then 34 weeks from then your site will be at basically full traffic so we'll take about 35 weeks for your site to be out basically maximum traffic now if you release a post every week it's about 35 weeks after you published that new post until it starts to get about that peak traffic from Google Yahoo Bing all over so just know that it's going to take about 35 weeks from after you publish the post until it's getting peak traffic now you can still get traffic and affiliate sales before that 35 weeks because people will be trickling in you're just gonna be at about your peak traffic the most that you're going to be getting going forward at that 35 weeks now a way that you can start to get traffic to your site before you're on the first page of Google and during that 35 week wait time is to be posting these articles in niche groups on Facebook.
Affiliate marketing with wix website step by step

 So if you type in rock climbing and join a bunch of those rock climbing groups you can post your article for your review or your education ones are typically the best you post your education post just as a link in that group those people will appreciate it they might have the same question they can read your article you're not trying to sell them anything and then they come to your site they find your site maybe they go to the reviews top lists and then they're clicking affiliate links so you can get your own traffic in the beginning before you're ranked at that 35 week time when you're going to be getting the organic traffic without doing anything now once Google sees you as a full site you have 30 posts or more on your site it's about 20 to 25 weeks from when you make a new post to when it's at peak traffic so the more posts you put on your site the lower that time frame gets from when you post it to when it's getting peak traffic so remember you can always post your articles into Facebook groups and forums and other places on the internet to get your own traffic there just make sure you're not being spammy and you're just sending it out there to help people out and not try to get them to click on your affiliate links so that's all we need to do here for the review style posts for the top list posts you typically want to do the top 5 rock climbing shoes or the top 5 rock climbing shoes under $50 or the top 5 affordable rock climbing shoes you can make multiple posts like that and you're going to make it the same way as the review post except it's going to be just a very short blurb about what the shoe is and then a list of 1 through 5 now you can get the links directly from Amazon and you can even get those top five from Amazon based on reviews or you can type into Google top 5 rock climbing shoes and find other people's lists and then find those products on Amazon and link them that way so that's how you make the top lists and feel free to get creative with it top 5 is typically a good number you don't have to do 10 that's just a long list but you need top 5 under $50 you can do top 5 cheap you can do five best-rated then find the ones on Amazon that have the best rating so you can sort it by best reviews and make sure that they don't only have a couple reviews but they have a substantial amount and the best reviews you can do top five rock climbing shoes under $200 see how you can get creative with that you only need about five different top lists and then fiber views and then maybe twenty education or split it up however you want if you only want to do one top list so you need top five rock climbing shoes just do one and then do the rest in reviews and education there is no specific rules that you have to follow on this but that's the format that you will do for this and then education you're not going to have Amazon affiliate links in we're not going for the sale here we're going to get organic traffic to our site once they're on our site chances are they will hit reviews top lists home and it will find posts that have affiliate links in them so what kind of questions do you answer in the education section well I like to use a website called answer the public so let's go over there right now and this is a really cool site so you type in what your niche is so it's rock climbing shoes and they load up all the questions that people are asking on Google on the Internet in general about rock climbing shoes so you can find the big ones on here and then you can look up what those answers really are and write a post about it it's literally that simple but this is the way to find out what people are really asking and then you want to make the post that poses the question and gives the answer and remember no affiliate links here we're just trying to get people to our website so the ones that have the darker green have more searches so can rock climbing shoes get wet that's like a perfect question and all you have to do is look up the answer find someone else's article and paraphrase it do not plagiarize because you can get into a lot of trouble from that but find someone else answering the question maybe find a few different answers and combine it into your summary the best answer that's all we have to do here and then we will start showing up in Google when someone types in can rock climbing shoes get wet they land on our page chances are they're going to go to another tab and click an affiliate link to go buy some rock climbing shoes or even to look at them and maybe buy that $300 vacuum cleaner I'm telling you there's a lot of Commission to be made here and typically when you hover over them it'll tell you the search volume on it but right now it's not working for some reason all these are just saying 0 so disregard it but if you do come through here and hover over it it might be working for you and you can actually see the search volume of how many people are searching that per month now you could always just copy this and paste it into kturtle it but just go off of the ones that are the dark green and there's a bunch of different charts you can use here so they all start with whatever the word is so can with and then it gives you the most searched questions with our keyword so this is going to be an excellent place for you to find education post questions and then just find the answer write a post it should take you no more than a half an hour to do any of these posts okay so that's how we make the content on our site and there's going to be one more section is how we get this optimized for search engines and get it to show up in Google Yahoo and Bing so that's coming up next and that is going to be extremely important so make sure you stick around for this okay guys you made it this far now we need to talk about search engine optimization how to show up in search results to get you the organic traffic to make this all work so you know how to make the blog post you have the template everything is ready to go now it's just going to be a matter of you doing what I'm about to explain and then making more blog posts to fill this site that's all it takes so if you can do that you're all set so remember before I was saying that WordPress was typically recommended for affiliate marketing because their SEO is better and they can get you to rank better than Wix could well Wix is getting really good at search engine optimization and they've actually made it a little bit easier than WordPress all we have to do here is from anywhere on your site is you just go to settings and then get found on Google like they're literally making it too easy for us and I have multiple sites ranked on the first page of Google so trust me when I say this really does work now this is the Wix SEO Wiz is what they call it and it's basically a survey and it walks you through step-by-step of how to optimize your site for search engine optimization it takes me about 15 minutes to go through this fully and then my site is ready to go so all you have to do is hit start now and it allows you to answer the questions input all the information for your niche for what you want to show up for it and that's rock climbing shoes or whatever niche you're in and then it just walks you through step by step fill this in copy this paste it over there and it just basically builds your site for you to be SEO optimized and then the last thing it does in this survey is index as you write to Google and then Google sends you an email and confirms that they received your site and their index and all as well it's literally so easy they didn't used to have this on Wix but now they do and it really does work so if you've stayed this far in the tutorial you now have everything you need to succeed in affiliate marketing my best advice is to get started as soon as possible the sooner you get started the sooner that 35 weeks comes into action so with that being said you guys should have everything you need feel free to reference those previous videos and use anything as a template that you might need on the site if you guys have any questions at all about any of this feel free to reach out anytime I'm always checking and responding to questions so I'm here to help you alright guys so I hope you enjoyed this I hope it's been helpful if you have any questions let me know and I'll see you all in the next one.

Thank you
