To begin this guide we will be setting up the site using BlueHost who we have negotiated a coupon that you can use by clicking the link below:

Once you've installed the site on BlueHost if it wasn't set up with the SSL certificate you can update the URL using the Really Simple SSL plugin from the WordPress.org repository here:

Really Simple SSL

The plugin will work with your SSL certificate to ensure anyone visiting the site will have the padlock icon next to your URL which confirms the site is secure and using https.

For setting up this site we will be using the Astra theme found here:

Astra

As well as the Beaver Builder page builder to help customize it. If you use a different theme then you may have different customization options available to you. Design the site how you would like it to display for your visitors, with the Astra theme and Beaver Builder you can create almost any design you're looking to add to your site.

Once your design is how you want it you'll want to look into adding the right keywords to have your posts rank on Google's search. If you're new to keyword research, we have a video guiding you on the steps to do keyword research here:

The keywords will also give you ideas for what content to write about for your site to keep giving value to your site's visitors. To begin getting revenue from your content you will want to sign up for affiliate programs. Some places to start looking for these programs are searching for the brands you use and add an affiliate program to your search. There are also sites such as ShareASale, cj.com, and Click Bank.

For this tutorial we'll be using the Amazon Associates affiliate program here:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/

Reminder: Do not cloak Amazon Affiliate links due to their current limitations for affiliates.

To make displaying Amazon content easier, we would recommend taking a look at the AAWP plugin that uses Amazon's own API to pull in product information without having any trouble with the affiliate agreement.
