Best WordPress themes for affiliate marketers


Best WordPress themes for affiliate marketersIf you’re an affiliate marketer and you’re running your sites on WordPress, you should be focused on three things: creating great content, terrific search engine optimization, and scaling your business.

WordPress makes it easy to do these things. But when you use a premium WordPress theme for your affiliate marketing websites, all of this gets even easier.

However, there are many budget-minded affiliates who refuse to use premium themes. They claim that the less-than $100 investment for a single theme isn’t worth it. I disagree.

Premium themes cost more because they make hard tasks easy and easy tasks even easier, automating tasks you would have had to do manually in the past.

Thesis, one of the most widely known WordPress theme frameworks, allows you to tweak the font style and size of your site’s navigation without needing to know a line of CSS code. In addition, Thesis “skins,” which work like child themes, allow you to adopt unique designs and colors at the

Genesis by StudioPress offers a dizzying array of child themes, which can help you build a dozen, or more, sites using the same basic framework with unique content and designs.

If you’re an Amazon Associates program affiliate, you’ll want to check out a theme like Easy Azon, which allows you to search Amazon’s catalog and post about Amazon products through your WordPress interface.

And if you have a flair for design, you’ll be able to make cool sites with the Headway theme for WordPress, which makes it easy to create visually appealing websites using drag-and-drop techniques. You can create a visual custom interface with multiple widgets for text, video and ads without knowing anything about CSS.

Regardless of which theme you choose, one thing you’ll get from all of them is terrific SEO.

All of them make it easy to set up options such as: title tags, meta tags, permalink redirects, WordPress breadcrumbs, SEO slugs, robots meta, syndication/feed, Google analytics code, as well as more advanced SEO such as no-follow links, canonical links, and advanced SEO elements.

If you’re looking for a great site, with great design, it’s time to buy a premium theme.
