    Hi there!
    After reading some posts on BHW i decided to start my first amazon affiliate site. To tell the truth I never created sites. It will be my first experience in this way. So I am looking forward to your support and help in some moments. Also I will make every day report of my progress and I hope I will make everything in 15 days. Let the game begin!

    Day 1:
    - I choosed awesome niche (this niche has near 500 products & price range of this products $100-1000)
    - Also this niche has low competiton, I found near 5 participants on main keywords
    - I have made small analyze of their pages and found my own way to make everything better

    Next day I'll buy hosting and domen, also will install WordPress. I have already googled some good hosting deals and will share them with you. It will be useful for people who also want to start and save money on buying hosting.

    Day 2:
    - Bought fastest hosting
    - Bought domain name (I spend near 1 hour for choosing really good domain name. Now my domain name sounds really professional for my niche)
    - Installed WordPress

    Also some advices for people who want to buy hosting, domain name. There are two ways:

    First way - to create a site on your computer. To do this, download wordpress from the official site, and then install the platform and all the basic software, including HTTP web server (Apache, NGINX, IIS), as well as database management system (DBMS) MySQL and programming languages (PHP, Perl, or Pethon). Yes, it is a bit difficult and long, but it will cost you near $30 in a year. You nedd to buy everything by parts. And you can save money on choosing some cheap domain sales, hostings ets. But your site may prove to be quite slow because of the cheap purchase of the host. So I don't recommend to do this, just follow the second way.

    Second way, the easiest. Just buy a bundle which includes domain, hosting & easy WordPress installation. I found two awesome networks - GoDaddy / Siteground. They have best deals in whole internet. Of course I watched for another network deals, but they were little bit expensive.
    SO GoDaddy & Siteground have awesome starter bundle, if you will buy hosting for 1 year you will also get free domain also easy WordPress installing. Prices are same - $60 year for starter bundle. But i choosed GoDaddy network because they have better starter deal such they allow 25.000 unique users in month, when Siteground has allowance with 10.000 uniques in month.

    Next day I'll set up WordPress plugins and I'll make site layout. You will see my layout picture & you can advice to me what can I add, and where I was wrong.

    Great Journey. Do you have any goal or deadline? It's better to set a goal and work hard to achieve within the time span.
    Keep us updated. Good Luck.

    Good Luck with your Amazon journey!

    Only thing I can not agree with you is about GoDaddy / Siteground bundles. I have used Godaddy for both domain names and hosting for years so I know well about it. Their hosting is fine for simple uses and even for a Amazon Wordpress site but there are plenty of faster and cheaper solutions. :)
