Finally, let’s cover some of the WordPress affiliate themes you can use in your Amazon affiliate marketing efforts.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to monetize a blog or website. Many bloggers take on affiliate marketing to establish either a primary or ancillary revenue stream. If affiliate marketing is your choice, you’ll surely know that Amazon runs the world’s most popular affiliate network. Affiliates earn a decent commission on sales. Besides, the sheer volume of products in the Amazon stable makes it a delight for a marketer who is looking to earn commission interest. Numerous internet marketers deal solely with Amazon products, and WordPress offers a stable platform to host these sites. There are several quality WordPress themes for Amazon affiliate marketing.
WordPress Amazon Affiliate Themes
In all honesty, you won’t need a special affiliate theme if you intend on promoting the occasional text or image link on your WordPress site. When the affiliate link is part of your content, it won’t have much of an effect on your website as a whole.
However, if you’re running an e-commerce site, conducting product testing and reviews, or offer Amazon product coupons, then you probably will want to use a WordPress Amazon affiliate theme. To be clear, these themes aren’t usually made specifically for Amazon affiliates. Instead, what you’ll want to look for are e-commerce or multi-purpose WordPress themes that are:
- Compatible w/affiliate marketing
- Feature-packed (for when your site is highly specialized)
The following WordPress themes would work very well if you intend on building an Amazon affiliate store:
The Admania WordPress theme is a great choice if you run a blog or product review site that would benefit from optimized affiliate link placement both inside and outside of your content.
Madras Themes has created two media-focused WooCommerce themes called Electro and MediaCenter. (They both look similar, so it’s simply a matter of choosing which layouts and features you prefer best.) If you want to build a store to sell Amazon digital and media products, use one of these themes.
REHub is another WordPress Amazon affiliate theme we’d recommend. Specifically, you’ll find this one to be quite useful when creating and managing coupon and price comparison websites.
I recognize that the list above is short; however, that’s because Amazon affiliate marketing really doesn’t require a specialized theme in order for it to work well (unless it’s one of the unique cases noted in the themes above). Instead, you’re better off using WooCommerce if you want to build a full affiliate store or simply stick to the WordPress theme you currently have and add affiliate plugins to the mix.
