Get Your Website Designed

This is the quick guide to affiliate marketing and hopefully you’re following along so far – now we’re going to get you a website design without having to spend thousands of dollars with a custom designer.

Hopefully you’ve listened my advice and are using WordPress.  Now you can get yourself a “WordPress Theme” which is a whole new design for your website.

I’ll tell you right now: don’t bother googling “free WordPress themes”.  They’re out there, but for the most part they are absolute crap.  You can get a top quality web design theme for a lot cheaper than that, and some of these designs are absolutely sick.

WordPress Design Resources:

Thesis: The Thesis WordPress theme is more than just a design.  It’s a very powerful framework that adds in a whole lot of new features within WordPress, and is built with “airtight SEO” in mind.  This is currently the top choice for affiliate marketers it seems, and you can purchase it here.

What I really like about Thesis is that it’s so simple, structured very well, and really does allow you to sit back, relax and just start writing content.

Flytonic Themes: Flytonic themes are very popular among gambling affiliates. If you’re a gambling affiliate, Flytonic themes are set up specifically for gambling, with a really neat admin interface which will create review pages and top bonus tables etc on the fly. Check out the High Roller Theme and the Dealer Theme for two examples of the great themes they offer.

Also before buying off Flytonic use the following exclusive Flytonic coupon code: PAB20. You will get $20 off your purchase.

ThemeForest: I can’t count the amount of times where I’ve been complemented on a “sick website design” when in reality I purchased it off ThemeForest for $27.  ThemeForest offers some AMAZING premium themes for WordPress, with a wide variety of great themes, and demos and previews for all of them.

ThemeForest also offers PSDs which you can get coded for WordPress.  These are also a great price and there is some really amazing PSDs on display. Browse their gallery.

ElegantThemes: Elegant Themes is just like the name suggests: you’ll look through all of their themes and say “Hey, that’s elegant!”.  They really do offer some classy themes, and the best part is to access all their themes it only costs a one time fee of $39.  If you’re looking to build multiple websites with different themes, be sure to check out Elegant Themes.

Custom Theme: If you have a specific idea in mind for a website and can’t see it on the sites listed above, or need a PSD coded into a WordPress theme, you can’t go wrong with Epik Media.  When it comes to programming, coding, communication and talent, these guys are amazing and my #1 choice.

    Heya. Thanks a lot for the comprehensive guide, really helpfull. Just an observation, I’m sure you’d like to hear things from the reader’s perspective: make Divi from top of the list on this page. Since this guide is addressed to newbies like me, Divi surely puts you at ease when it comes to how easy it’s going to be to actually design your website. After browsing through so many options, finding it was like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I will definitely go for it, so get your bank account ready for the affiliate commission 🙂
    Cheers !

    Dealerdan, Thesis seems a bit pricey, ($80-180), do you think for a beginner, a cheaper option isnt better (themeforest and eleganthemes)?
