"An easy, exciting and ethical way to make money online"


How to start your own Affiliate Review Site

At the moment review sites are very popular and can be an excellent addition to your online marketing activities. There are lots of companiesbcasualthat offer ready made or turnkey sites for webmasters that want to turn a quick profit. These sites which can be one page landing sites, to full WordPress blogs are a quick and easy way to build your presence online. For the PPC enthusiast who wants to chop and change and split test then these turnkey services are ideal.

Quality Counts
When it comes to PPC and quality it’s important to have a well oiled system that includes good coding and quick loading of your site. With this in mind I have chosen Affiliate Review Sites . This website gives you plenty of choices on the type of sites you can have, I opted initially for the WordPress blog template. Their other options include single page and multi page review sites, these latter two are HTML templates.

WordPress Review Blogs
I found their WordPress review sites to be extremely good value for money, at $30.00 each. I would stress however that the templates might not suit everyone, for example the templates do not allow for widgets other than the pre loaded ones included in the package. Another thing to bear in mind is the setup which can be a bit difficult for the newbie. That being said they do provide full instructions by PDF and you can download the video which takes you step by step through the installation process.

You can see an example here of a WordPress review blog, this example shows you how you can capture leads and utilize ClickBank and Adsense. The original package has to be configured with your ClickBank ID and your intro message along with your Aweber code (example only). If you check out some of the pages you can see that I have added Adsense. You can also add one or two buttons on the sidebar; I have added a MyBlogLog button here.

Add your own plugins
you can of course add your own plugins at any time, I added Twitter Doodle and Apture to enhance the blog part. The site is a WordPress blog but has the feel of a normal site. It is extremely fast in loading and has a professional look and feel about it. It’s also very easy to edit and you can add more pages and posts, each package comes with 10 articles on that particular niche. All in all if you are promoting through PPC then the landing page is optimized to capture leads and link directly through to the reviewed ClickBank products.

I know there are plenty of you who already use review sites, so give us some of your wisdom and experiences.

Update 23 Nov 2009

I have now switched back over to my regular WordPress Format using the Atahaulpa Theme, The reason? much more options for theme layout and the Dating niche is not one of my better performing networks, so i have decided to scale back and revert to auto posting for a static site.
