To begin this guide we will be setting up the site using BlueHost who we have negotiated a coupon that you can use by clicking the link below:

Once you’ve installed the site on BlueHost if it wasn’t set up with the SSL certificate you can update the URL using the Really Simple SSL plugin from the WordPress.org repository here:

The plugin will work with your SSL certificate to ensure anyone visiting the site will have the padlock icon next to your URL which confirms the site is secure and using https.

For setting up this site we will be using the Astra theme found here:

As well as the Beaver Builder page builder to help customize it. If you use a different theme then you may have different customization options available to you. Design the site how you would like it to display for your visitors, with the Astra theme and Beaver Builder you can create almost any design you’re looking to add to your site.

Once your design is how you want it you’ll want to look into adding the right keywords to have your posts rank on Google’s search. If you’re new to keyword research, we have a video guiding you on the steps to do keyword research here:

The keywords will also give you ideas for what content to write about for your site to keep giving value to your site’s visitors. To begin getting revenue from your content you will want to sign up for affiliate programs. Some places to start looking for these programs are searching for the brands you use and add an affiliate program to your search. There are also sites such as ShareASale, cj.com, and Click Bank.

For this tutorial we’ll be using the Amazon Associates affiliate program here:

Once you sign up to be a part of the affiliate program we recommend activating your Associates SiteStripe to give you an easy ability to get the approved images and links to use for Amazon.

Reminder: Do not cloak Amazon Affiliate links due to their current limitations for affiliates.

To make displaying Amazon content easier, we would recommend taking a look at the AAWP plugin that uses Amazon’s own API to pull in product information without having any trouble with the affiliate agreement.

    Thank you so much! How many affiliate blog websites do you own? It sounds like a wonderful business model. Alot of back end work creating all the blog posts to rank on google, but when up and running it sounds really passive.

    Great video! Clear & concise, I have a question…if one is building a site as localhost, when making pages and adding content, when can affiliate links be added? do affiliate sources need to view the site up & running, or will "Print Screen Shots" & presentation be considered? SORRY! If this is a dumb question, I'm completely new to all this and I really wanted to Not use a Template but wanted to build from the ground up with a particular idea floating inside my empty head & it's also a learning curve for me. Again! Many Thanks and Kind Regards 😉
    P.S Can I make the pages & content with all products I wish to include, get my domain and then organize affiliates?? Oh! Can amazon & eBay be used on the one site?

    Good video…WordPress is still my preferred platform because of the flexbility. But you have to keep it *secure*…alot of newbies build a site and forget about it and then get into trouble

    Amazing video. Thank you so much! Just one thing mam, when you copy your licence key, the copy dialogue box that opens shows the entire key as 'open followed by your key'. Just noticed that and people can use it without your permission so wanted to notify you. Have a nice day!

    Hi, thank you for this informative video. When signing up for blue host, can I list it under my husband's name or does it have to be under my name? Will that make any difference in anything?

    If you’ve watched other videos in this series, you can go to 21:50 for the affiliate marketing specific material. The first part repeats the process of building your website with WordPress and Astra. Don’t skip that if this is your first video in this series.

    Hi Guys great video's thankyou. My issue is I search for Astra Starter Sites and it does not appear in the plugins list.Is it still in the plugins repository.

  35. Rafael Lupian August 8, 2020 at 8:50 am - Reply

    I had a question, when deleting the plugs and I bought the domain and hosting package from blue host. Do I need the Bluehost plugin when starting out the site? I deleted all of the others but did not delete the Bluehost one because I was not sure of it was essential to the website.
