Back in August of 2007 it was still pretty technical to get a website up and running online with WordPress, as an affiliate marketer. You had to download and install it and you still have to configure it with your database after you set it up.
Those were the days of Thesis 1.4 and you were just happy to be able to create a cool header on your own.
Now if you were around back then doing affiliate niche sites or creating business sites for someone else then you know what I’m talking about.
There really wasn’t an easy way to build an online affiliate website that’s designed to help you earn your first $1,000.00 online.
Fast forward to today.
You can get a website online within 10 minutes using a slow internet connection. It’s kinda funny when you think about it, while WordPress itself is getting easier and easier to use.
Web design is getting simpler and simpler. It’s not about who can create the flashes sites, it’s about simple clean design.
Apple really changed the design landscape and smart companies like Microsoft followed them and started creating flat design.
This is why you see a lot of pages with a hero header with a real focus on typography and white space. Now it’s about making sure your message doesn’t get lost in the design.
This means that anyone who really wants to learn how to build their own affiliate business doesn’t have to spend a ton of money outsourcing nor do they have to wait for someone else to update their website.
More importantly, they don’t have to use these cookie-cutters over priced systems out there that promise to do everything for you.
I will admit, I’m a techie at heart! It’s something about technology that attracts me to it. I love software and marketing, so for me, Digital DIY Geek is going to be a lot of fun.
It’s going to be fun for you too because we are going to go beyond just the normal stuff that people talk about, we are going to be looking at what really move people to action and how to build nice modern websites yourself that’s designed to convert.
As an online business owner, this is going to be great if you’re an affiliate marketer who creates niche site or if you own a brick and mortar business I am going to show you how to create a modern website that you will be able to update as you see fit.
You will quickly notice that 90% of our content is free and not locked behind a survey or some none sense like that…
The only reason why we are able to do this is because, we use affiliate links on our site, this means when you click on our link and buy a product the vendor buys us a cup of coffee for recommending you to the product.
Our policy is really simple, we only recommend the things we own and we don’t do sponsorships at this time. We spend our own money so that way we can give our real thoughts.
If you find our content helpful, then consider using our links, but if our content suck then I would recommend you go directly to the site to pick up the product and by pass our link altogether.
In short, if you want to create an online business or affiliate marketing business without a cookie-cutter system your in the right place.
In case you’re wondering what is a cookie-cutter system.
We consider anything that offers 100% commissions and you have to promote the system “A Cookie-Cutter System”.
Grab your chosen drink, (for me it’s Starbucks, yeah I’m a Starbucks kind of a guy) and let’s dig in and have some fun.
Until Next Time,
