    Hey guys,


    Recently have been dabbling around with IM, starting to get some good results with my social media growth accounts.


    Currently looking into creating affiliate sites to link to my social media accounts in a hope to help building my passive income.


    Just enquiring if anyone could advise me: for affiliate sites, is HTML or WP better?


    And if the later could you recommend any good themes - I can't seem to come across any.



    Thanks in advance.

    Wordpress makes it easy for other people without the FTP password to change the contents.

    HTML on the other hand is faster and more secure. You're less likely to get a html-only site hacked.

    depends on your goals
    if its a simple/1 page site, go with html
    if you want to manage a blog, easily install plugins, go with wp
    html has an ultra light footprint. requires some html knowledge to get going. otoh wp is bloaded as hell, but you get all the benefits of what it offers. simple & feature rich.
    both options have wide catalog of pretty templates if you dont want to code yourself.
    for WP themes my goto is themelock.com/themeforest.com just browse until something catches your eye. or find a good looking competitor and jack his theme

    WP. Get a clean theme and build the site the way you want. You cna obviously still use HTML and all with WP yet most peope can't figure out how to get jQuery to work with it.

    Wordpress is for managing your site's contet through a graphical user interface . If you're going to have many page and will most likely need dynamic data this is the way to go.

    Managing a blog throug plain HTML is a nightmare, don't.

    WP is better since it does not require learning codes or all those boring stuffs.

    For affiliate site HTML is the only choice, because:
    - it's 1000s times faster than wordpress
    - it's 1000s times more secure than wordpress
