Does Your Website Look Like This?


I get dozens upon dozens of affiliate applications each and every week for websites that look almost EXACTLY like this one.  It's a wordpress template, and the tell-tale sign is the spinning Amazon.com widget at the top.

When reviewing applications, I've gotten to the point where I close the tab that opened to display the website and have the "DECLINE" radio button checked even before the widget stops spinning.  There's no way I would be getting much value from having my links on a site that is identical to hundreds, if not thousands, of other sites populating the internet.

Sure... there are probably a few affiliates out there that can/will do a fantastic job with this template.  But if they're that good, I would urge them to get away from this template and start with something that is truly their own.
