Build a High-Performance Amazon Affiliate Website

[Step-by-Step Tutorial]

Overview

hi-performance-amazon-affiliate-website-tutorial-overviewWhat is a high-performance Amazon affiliate website?

Lately, you may have heard a lot of talk about website performance, page speed, and core web vitals. This is all-important for a successful Amazon Affiliate website, but “performance” applies to a lot more than just how fast your page loads or what scores you get in a page speed tester.

In this tutorial, we will go step-by-step through everything you need to know and do to launch a high-performance website on ALL levels.

Performance applies to many things such as:

  • How fast your website & content loads.
  • You website colors and styles.
  • How well do your website’s colors affect the reader’s mood?
  • How easy is your font to read?
  • How well your content performs.
  • How well does your content catch the reader’s attention?
  • How well do your templates guide the reader’s eyes?
  • How scannable are your posts and pages?
  • Are your paragraphs too short or too long?
  • How well does your copy, imagery, and overall “look-n-feel” influence people to want to click your affiliate links?
  • How efficiently YOU work! How much of your most valuable resource, your time, do you think you will waste figuring out and testing all of this stuff for yourself. You yourself can be “high-performance” cranking out high-quality work efficiently.

As you can see, all of these aspects of building a successful Amazon Affiliate website can be optimized to achieve their goals as well as possible.

This is not the only way to build an Amazon Affiliate Website…

There are many different ways to build a successful website, and this tutorial teaches one of them. All choices, services, software, and recommendations are my own, and not necessarily the best way to do them, but my way at this current time.

Let’s take the guesswork out of building a high-performance Amazon affiliate website. To save the most time and get the best results, especially for new bloggers and content creators, I recommend following the tutorial exactly. Once you learn the method, you can change it to suit your needs.

What does this tutorial assume?

This tutorial assumes that you:

  • want to save lots of time and frustration while at the same time building a top-performing long-lasting Amazon affiliate website
  • want every single step on what to do laid out clearly.
  • are somewhat technically savvy. You must be able to use a computer, type documents, resize images, and complete other general computer-related activities.
  • have at least enough money to pay for a yearly fee to register a domain and enough money to pay monthly for website hosting.
  • understand that the methods, choices, and techniques presented in this tutorial are just one way to do things, and not necessarily the best way to do things. They are a way to do things. I don’t know everything!
