WP Affiliate Guide

Teli Adlam —  January 28, 2008

In case you’re wondering why I’ve been more quiet than usual around here, it’s because I’ve been working on the WP Affiliate Guide project. Basically, the WP Affiliate Guide is a course on how to build an affiliate website using WordPress. For the most part, it’s already entered a pre-launch phase and the feedback I’ve received has been great. I’ll be posting another update soon when I officially move into launching the product.

  1. Hi Teli,

    I like your site and I’m looking forward to learning more about your WP Affiliate product. Being a subscribed user on Lynn Terry’s Clicknewz and forum is how I learned about you. As a newbie looking to get into affiliate marketing and was wondering is your product good for someone like me and any further recommendations you could give.


    p.s. just curious why do you ask if visitors/members are human? Is this for tracking purposes?

  2. Hi Maurice,
    The WP Affiliate Guide, as I mentioned above, is basically a course on how to turn WP into a content management system for affiliate websites.

    After snagging a copy of Rosalind Gardner’s Super Affiliate Handbook and starting out in the world of affiliate marketing, I quickly learned that updating a static affiliate product website manually through Dreamweaver and FTP was not all it was cracked up to be. LOL

    That’s when I started using WP to help manage the sites — it makes it much easier to keep things up to date without needing to go through much trouble.

    The forum is also turning into a nice haven for affiliate marketers and budding affiliate marketers; in fact, I’m quite awed by the information that’s currently being shared. One of our members is actually doing a live run through the WP Affiliate Guide process — he even gives out his website link so we can all follow along.

    Re the “are you human” question: it’s a spam deterrent. 🙂 Asking that simple question has reduced the amount of spam in my moderation queue from a few hundred per day to less than 30 per day. (Most robots aren’t smart enough to answer the question properly. LOL)

  3. Thanks for the quick response, Teli. A live run, huh? I will go and check it out.

    Appreciate it,

  4. No problem. Just a head’s up; it hasn’t been released as yet, but I am currently running a pre-launch WSO for a limited time.

  5. Hi Teli,

    I just purchased your WSO offer and looking forward to getting right into it. What made me decide to purchase from you was the fact that, I sensed you were a person of integrity and genuinely wanted to help others w/o the hype.

    Also being connected to Lynn Terry was a plus and your one of two sisters online that I subscribe to who are making big moves. It’s good to see women especially of color and I like to support that. Keep pushing and PROUD of you!

    God Bless,

  6. Im heading over now to have a look at the WP affilate thingy!!!

    btw what happens when you answer “dunno” or “perhaps” when asked about if im human??

  7. I’ve just started using wordpress after being a faithful blogger so think this resource will be extremely helpful.

  8. I wanted to read more about this project but I saw that long never-ending page and I just gave up. I really don’t understand why people use that kind of sales page. Why don’t you use WP for that site too? I am sure people will like it more.

    And updating a static website is piece of cake with DW if you know some basic coding.


  9. Hi Betty,
    Sorry you’re not down with the long sales letter (actually, it’s a rather short sales letter when compared with many others). My recommendation is to scan rather than read word by word — it does contain headings for each section. You could also read the about page, which is shorter.

    It is apparent you didn’t stick around long enough to see that the site is completely powered by WordPress and people, at least the ones I’ve dealt with, like it just fine.

    Finally, having used DW for nearly 7 years, I know that updating a static site can be cake if it’s not a large site that you’re dealing with. It becomes a pain in the rear, however, when you have to manually update hundreds of pages because they were created without a template or the template was corrupted.

    I’ve been there my fair share of times and I prefer avoiding it whenever possible.

    In any event, thanks for your comments; I will definitely take your feedback into consideration for future revisions of the site and sales letter.

  10. Hi
    I didn’t notice it was powered by WP-as I said I don’t stay long on sites with just one page selling me the magic ebook to get rich in 1 minute working while I am jogging. I think I saw too many and all selling the same CRAP. I am sure there are also good products sold on that kind of site but I didn’t find any so far. Will check out yours again 😀
    About the DW stuff…are there static websites with hundreds of pages?? 😀 In that case, it is a pain in the back

  11. Well if you didn’t stick around long enough to see …

    1. ….nowhere on that page do I mention selling a magic ebook which promises to get you rich in one minute while jogging — in fact, I don’t promise you’ll make any amount of money
    2. …or you couldn’t deduce from the name of the course — How to Build an Affiliate Website with WordPress — that the course (it’s not just an ebook) is about how to use WP to build an affiliate website, not how to “get rich overnight”
    3. …or notice the top navigation elements which easily allow you to visit other parts of the site
    4. …and are under the assumption that my product is crap without actually reading, using, or asking anyone who’s actually received the product whether or not it’s any good…

    Then, there’s really no need for you to go and re-read the page on my account.

    By the way, how’s manually spamming comments with your “Stop Smoking Now” affiliate website working out for you? Frankly, you shouldn’t be too quick to judge a website when your own website (assuming you’re not being paid to spam) is of a highly questionable nature. At least I stand behind my product instead of hiding behind a false name and mailinator e-mail address.

  12. You can simmer down now, Teli. 🙂 I don’t think Betty even realized that she was taking a jab at your product. It’s obvious from her first comment that she’s quick to speak and slow to think about how her words can be construed.

    Sometimes people can really put their foot in their mouth without realizing it. Sorry you had to deal with it on your blog. One can only hope Betty, and anyone else reading this, learned something: It’s not always a good idea to judge a book by its cover.

    Plus, I don’t think she’s someone you’d want as a customer in the first place. (I know I wouldn’t.) You’d probably end up fielding a bunch of questions from her which are answered in the book, videos, or FAQ because she didn’t actually take the time to read or watch them.

    As a long time blog reader and client, you’ve helped me tremendously over the years and as a happy WordPress affiliate guide customer, I can say you did an excellent job with it. Keep your chin up.

  13. Not sure the WP Affiliate Guide will help me as I have yet done anything like this. Might give it a shot. Would like a review of class if anyone takes it. Thanks for the offer and no doubt I wll be checking back in.

    Yes yes yes! I’ve always used blogger but there’s only so much you can with them.

    I need something faster them uploading each new page via (FTP) as well. this sounds like just the thing I’m looking for. Thanks. 🙂

    yes Teli, excellent, Word press is such a versatile tool. I have create several complete web sites including and excluding the word press blog function.

    So i agree that WP has evolved into much more than blogging software. Why wouldn’t i want my customers to update their sites themselves rather than coming through and that old fashioned FTP access (HTML editor).

    The Affiliated WP guide is a great idea, i don’t feel a need for it personally, but i have recommended your course / product to various friends and business partners.

    Its well worth following a guide when creating a wordpress blog, in hindsight it can save you a lot of mistakes and omissions and helps to ensure everything runs smoothly. A comprehensive guide is just what the affiliate industry needs, especially for anyone who’s new to affiliate marketing.

  19. Hi there Teli,

    and well done on taking this initiative to create your own product. Looking forward to review it 🙂

    All The Best
