Problems With Starting An Affiliate Site From Scratch
If you ever built a new website from scratch then you know that it is a lot of work. If you are a newbie, it is more than just work. Additionally, there are too many points where it can go wrong.
- First, you need to pick a profitable niche. If you mess this up, the hundreds of hours of work you put into your website will lead to nothing and you just wasted all that time.
- The next point of possible failure is keyword research. Even if you have a profitable niche, the wrong keywords will ruin your chances of success.
- Lack of training. If you never built a successful site, chances are you are not going to figure it out without help. Do you know how to build links, how to do SEO, how to drive traffic? Courses like that can cost a fortune…
- The next point is trying to do it all by yourself. What happens if you get stuck? How are you going to get help?
- Content creation is a lot of work, you may not have time for it while having a full-time job.
Beginners usually have a problem picking a profitable niche and to build a site from scratch. The subject itself is already tricky and there is a lot of false information floating around.
What can you do? You have two choices. You may try to figure it out by yourself and be ready to fail… Or you can have one built for you by experts.
Cookie-cutter Websites Don’t Work
When I say built-for-you websites, I don’t mean the so-called “turn-key” websites. Turnkey ready to use sites don’t work. They are made in a cookie-cutter way with the same template and many times even with the same articles. Stay away from those. The people who sell those just take your money and you will never see it come back.
Now I am going to show you the REAL ready-made affiliate websites.
Warning: This is NOT a get-rich-quick plan. And it is not free. If that’s what you expect, you should close this page right now. Having a website is only a part of success. When you get your site, you will need to keep putting work into it. But you will get a headstart and expert help. This applies to every niche.
These ready-made sites are built by my friend Dom Wells and his HPD team. The sites are built to make money with affiliate marketing: your visitors are sent to a merchant site (usually Amazon, but can be others), and when they buy a product, you earn a commission.
This is what you get:
- 1. A pre-researched profitable niche.
This means you don’t need to spend time on niche research and you have guarantee that your niche is profitable. Their research team is constantly looking for profitable niches. You just pick the one you like. If you already have a niche, you can ask the Human Proof Designs team to research it for you and build a website for you. They make sure there is a demand for that niche and that competition is not high.
- 2. Done-for-you keyword research.
Their researchers find the best keywords that will get your articles ranking and sales happening. They also let you select from several possible domain names.
- 3. Done-for-you content creation.
Their team creates original and unique content that is user- and search engine-friendly. You get a 2,500 word home page and 8,000 words of content total.
- 4. Unique design
Each affiliate site has its unique design with a premium WordPress theme and includes all needed plugins (even non-free ones). They never sell the same design to another person. This includes premium images.
- 5. Fully SEO optimized pages.
- 6. Reasonable price.
- 7. They provide you with complete training (lifetime access to their increasing video library) on what to do once the site is turned over to you. A six-month detailed plan, social media, content writing, outsourcing, plugins, link building, getting traffic, getting your first sale, etc.
- 8. Free tech support and e-mail support
- 9. Private Facebook group
- 10. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee: Their policy is simple… If you’re not happy, they’re not happy. No fine print. If anything wrong, you can reach out to their awesome support team and they will do everything to make it right. You get support as long as you need it.
- 11. Premium features: If you get the premium package, they also set up your social media pages, give you a logo and extra content.
The prices are extremely reasonable and if you are able to invest into this, it will definitely be your best internet marketing investment.
As I said before, there is still a lot of work when you get the website, it’s not a let’s get rich quick scheme. However it is a great shortcut to give you a jumpstart.

These niche sites usually start producing income in 3-6 months. Of course this depends on the niche to a large degree and also how much time and effort you put in after you take the site over.
Additional Human Proof Design Services
When you launch a completely new site, it usually takes at least 6 moths to see rankings and traffic. Google has for quite a while kept new sites in a “sandbox”. A search engines’ main goal is to provide the visitors with high quality information and websites. A brand new website can’t be trusted right away. If Google sees that you’re consistently adding quality content, they start ranking you.
Human Proof Designs aged websites are at least 6 months old. They register a domain, build a website and keep adding content to it for a few months. Once the website is well indexed and ranked, you can buy it.
This is the fastest option to seeing income from a niche website. They are aged, ranked and already getting traffic. Of course aged sites come with a much higher price tag at $1,497.
Writing content is vital, but it’s a lot of work. If you are just starting with your affiliate website then you need to write a lot. Some people are not good at writing and others have no time for it. Human Proof Designs write high quality articles for you for $20 per article. Each article is 1,000 words long, SEO and visitor friendly and is written by native English speakers. They have a minimum order of 10 articles. If you buy more, the price goes down.
Human Proof Designs also sells niche keyword packs. When they research a niche, the end result is a list of useful keywords for that niche, with number of monthly searches. You also get the top 100 selling products in Amazon for this niche and the competition keyword report for 3 sites in the niche. If you want to do such keyword research yourself, you need to put in a lot of time and pay for a keyword tool. (E. g. SEMrush costs $99 per month). You save a lot with the keyword packs at only $49. A keyword pack can be sold to up to 10 customers.
