How To Create Affiliate Niche Sites Using WordPress

Back in 2009, my friends at Unique Blog Designs (they’re the ones who designed John Chow dot Com) created Affiliate Theme, the affiliate niche site creation tool for WordPress. The theme made it super easy for anyone to create affiliate niche sites using the WordPess. Instead of using the blogging software to create a blog, Affiliate Theme uses WordPress to create an affiliate site or landing page. It was a genius idea, and UBD sold over 20,000 copies of the themes.

Unique Blog Designs haven’t been resting on their success. For the past several months, they’ve been working hard on an update for Affiliate theme and I’m happy to announce the release of Affiliate Theme 2.0 (AT2).

What Is An Affiliate Niche Site?

An affiliate niche site looks like a normal content site, but it’s really an elaborate landing page designed to get people to sign up for various affiliate offers.

The big advantage the niche site has over the landing page is it doesn’t look like a sale page (at least it doesn’t try to). Rather, it looks like a site that provides information on the chosen topic, and this can result in higher conversions. In the past, creating an affiliate niche site cost a lot of money and took a long time because you needed a professional designer to make them. With Affiliate Theme 2.0, you can create an affiliate niche site in just a few minutes, and with a just a few clicks of the mouse!

If you’ve been wanting to get into affiliate marketing but hesitated because you don’t know the first thing about creating an affiliate landing page, then you should definitely check out AT2. If you’re already an affiliate marketer, then Affiliate Theme 2.0 adds one more tool to your affiliate marketing arsenal.

Everything You Need To Creatie An Affiliate Niche Site

Unique Blog Designs have packed a TON of new features in this new version of Affiliate Theme and I think you will be extremely delighted with the results. Notable new features include:

  • Niche Skins – Also known as WordPress child-themes, Niche Skins will allow you to instantly change the entire appearance and layout of you site to a pre-designed affiliate niche. The standard package Affiliate Theme come five Niche Skins.

One of the most notable new features of Affiliate Theme is the affiliate marketplace. Anyone can buy and sell Niche Skins within the marketplace. Users can also post listings for any additional affiliate or internet marketing-related product or service. Examples might include membership programs, coaching, design services, etc.

In order to jump start the marketplace, posting new listing is currently free and UBD does not take any commission from your sales. You are free to set the price of your products of your Niche Skins, products or services.

    An associate market website looks like a normal content website, but it’s really an fancy web page designed to get people to join for various internet marketer offers.

        UBD is a good theme but for the affiliate product review niche, it is compable with WPreviewengine, lower price a bit. What do you think? @Makeup

  2. OptimizdePress is way better!

  3. mamasmanual says:

    I have a word press site already which Iam working on .How easy is this going to be to install for a newbie?. Not much technical stuff?

  4. fas says:

    This is a very food theme, but will people who bought Version 1 get it?

  5. Great idea @johnchow I just finished creating my opt in page for my new ebook that I will be offering with the autoresponder sequences setup. I’m using Optimize Press with that one since I enjoy the themes a lot better but I did find this method a lot better than just setting up multiple niche sites because then you have to work on content and building an email list at the same time. The only part I have been trying to figure out is building traffic to the sales page besides just pay per click methods. Any ideas on this when your offering a free ebook? I could offer an affiliate program but how could you compensate your affiliates? I was thinking amex gift cards for the top 5 affiliates!

    I used several of those pre-built niche sites in the past. I never found them to be useful. If you are a newbie with little or no experience, these sites are usually prebuilt to benefit the owner who sold or gave them to you. Usually loaded with redirects and scripts for someone elses benefit.

    Like john chow would say, the best way is to get your own domain, install wordpress and create your own site.

    John, if Affiliate Landing Pages are designed to be super effective at conversions, why not make your *real* landing page look just like your Affiliate page and visa versa?

    1. John Chow says:

      Affiliate landing pages are designed for new visitors or visitors from search and PPC. This “landing page” is deigned for repeat readers and readers who already know me.

  8. 2.0 is looking much better, I may just get it, not sure if I’ll buy it straight up, or use your hosting offer since I’m looking to start some websites with a partner and this could be a good opportunity.
