I hate visiting different websites to access cheap marketing tools. It is time consuming and besides there is a learning curve as you try to figure out how to use different types of marketing tools. Some of the tools’ interfaces really suck….
Some tools require downloading of software, which degrades my computer memory. Besides, you can hardly find websites that teach you how to become an affiliate marketer step by step and then provide you with the necessary tools.
I however stumbled upon a website with all the essential ‘Get Started’ affiliate marketing training and has web based marketing tools onsite. You can try out all the Affiliate marketing tools for free.
Yes! …. no downloads or shuttling between websites.
That was a no-brainer. Let’s get started if you are ready …………
Here is the instant opportunity to take the Word Press website generator for a spin.
Enter your domain name in the space before .siterubix and hit enter. Of course later you will be prompted to create a password to protect your website from spammers.
If you are new to affiliate marketing you can follow the step-by-step process below starting with choosing niche.
For starters, the definition of niche …. a group of people with common interests. It can be interest in gardening, sports, dating etc.
Here’s a PDF list of 2 000 possible niches …………………….. Massive Niche List
Remember having passion only in a niche is not a guarantee of success. It must have a high search volume, affiliate products to sell and you must have sufficient knowledge about the niche.
2. Choose a domain name or the website address.
The domain or website address is where people visit if they want to read content on your website …..e.g. this website’s address is www.avertscams.com.
This is were most beginners get stuck ….. because most ‘experts’ or ‘Gurus’ skip this stage. They assume everyone is familiar with how to do this.
The name must be relevant to the niche, memorable and enticing ….. it does not necessarily affect how easy your website will be found in search engines.
Here is a free website name generator…… enter the required information and choose the most exciting name.
Let not this stage slow down your progress, you can always edit, delete and choose a new website name latter….. remember you are online, it is not a real life physical address which can be difficult to change.
Now that you have both, the website address and name …. lets slot it into one of the fastest website builder…

4. Ad Free website hosting.
Your website needs a place to be securely hosted. Your first two websites will be hosted at Wealthy Affiliate secure servers for free.
Most hosting companies deceive us by claiming that they are free yet you are forced to advertise their services on your website. This is especially detrimental to affiliate marketing success if the web-hosting products compete with your affiliate products.
I love this hosting because the support is responsive, up-time is very high and it allows secure website auto login.
My favorite features include …automatic website backups, website health analysis and access to Ftp …. makes the hosting superb.
Hosting is not free if you are forced to add adverts on your website.
5. Keyword Volume Tool.
There is no need to leave the site to search for keywords; the tool is right inside the main website dashboard.You need to know the words people are typing in the search engines to find services you are offering.
The keyword search volume is important in estimating the number of people searching for that keyword. You probably visited avertscams.com because l used this tool to find popular key words. That is what people type in search engines such as Google when searching for ‘legitimate opportunities to make money online’.
Build great content around these keywords……
Building great content which no-one can access is less useful as having keyword staffed poor content.
Search engine marketing and optimization begins with a long tail keywords tool. For starters, long tail key words are more specific phrases people in search engines compared to generic one or two words.
website builder – short tail, generic key words and they have high competition.
user-friendly website builder – long tail, specific search and there is less competition.
If you have already created your Free Wealthy Affiliate account, you will find the the keyword volume tool under ‘Tools’ – bottom left side of the dashboard.
l love this keyword tool because it allows you to do cool stuff that you normally find in premium keyword research tools besides showing the search volume for keywords. You can check how many websites are competing for that keyword and you can estimate if your your website can be found for that keyword.
It’s an overture keyword selector tool and any advanced keyword research can be accomplished using Jaaxy Keyword Tool. It is accessible both externally or via the Wealthy Affiliate dashboard.

No need to open another website window to write your content…….. now you understand it when l say ‘all the essential affiliate marketing tools are on board?
6. Rapid Writer with keyword density counter.
I love this on-site tool because you don’t need to leave the website to write your content. It makes life soooo much easier….
It is WordPress optimized, includes an inbuilt keyword density calculator and allows the uploading of images. This means the formatting of your content is preserved when you paste it into web pages, you are not punished by search engines such as Google for keyword staffing.
You can also save your content and publish it latter.
It’s crazy when you type your content in word and when you paste it into Word Press, the format is lost and it looks horrible.
Visit the ‘Tools’ category and open the Rapid Writer.
