    I have never seen an example of a successful affiliate marketing site so I have no idea if mine will "work." I've just been reading the forums and decided to take some action instead of sit around. I don't really know what I'm doing though :p

    This is a personal blog/store and I've got all my hoplinks and links set up with Clickbank and CJ. I spent like 50 bucks on random fiverr gigs for SEO. Should have a bunch of backlinks soon. I'm working on squidoos and article submission for more.

    Will my site function as an affiliate sales site? Will I get sales IF i can drive traffic? If not, what's wrong with it and how can I fix this?

    The site is "FreeMuscleBuilding:eek:C0m" Cant post URL


    Please help! Thanks in advance.

    The design of the site is not appealing. Probably you should redesign it because it doesn't look professional.

    Which keywords are you trying to rank?
    If someone searches for "Free Muscle Building", I don't think that they will spend money on supplements etc.

    PS: Nice muscle progress, implying this is you on the pictures and the timeline is real.

    That's a good EMD. Im sure there are a lot of people searching for how to get bigger.

    The design looks good, but can use some work. Im sure youll get the hang of it soon enough as its your first time. No one is perfect the first time around. Good luck!

    Edit the header image a bit. You don't need 7 ads for the same offer on the front page. More content, less ads and better placement. Add some youtube videos of yourself and reviews, that can help a lot and get more traffic for free.

    If those 10 fiverr gigs are "I'll send 10,000 backlinks to your site" than for a 2 day old site that's probably overkill to just blast away fiverr gigs and hope for the best.

    Way too many ads on the front page with no context. Maybe write a review with one or two well placed ads. Preferably a text link.

    The header image is just creepy, you can definitely do some work on the overall theme of the site.

    First of all I need to say that the site does not look like a newbie´s done it. It´s a middle thing I think. If I was searching for some supplements and found that site I wouldn´t leave at once. So you have something good going on that page.

    But as a custumer the first thing I would want to have changed on the site is the Header. First you need to get rid of the blurr.. Right now it looks like a samplepic you´ve cut out from a magazine and scanned into the computer. What I would do is change that picture to something that looks more professional. And make sure that the picture is of good quality.

    Other that that.. good job m8.

    Congratulations for taking action! :) now, you'll just have to improve it.

    I agree, your theme is just okay. I think if you'll be changing theme, you can try some darker themes and make it look more tough and more masculine. Look at how salespages were done on CB, how they present it and the feeling they want to project to visitors.

    Your homepage has 7 banners which looks like its all the same product. Why dont you use the large square at the bottom row? The one with the "FREE" word on it. Since your domain has the "free" word as well, you might want to use that as that will support your "freemuscle..." domain name.

    Move your facebook buttons at the sidebar so your users can see your facebook page sitewide. Add in some newsletter subscription forms on the sidebar as well and add in your youtube channel (if youll setup one). I think most of your users will enjoy seeing real vids of your body building sessions -- itll add in more trust and make you look expert on your field.

    And move your body shot at the sidebar to the content area on homepage.. Make it look like or add in to "I owe 99%... >> (show body shot) >> ADS! ;)

    Also, youll find plenty of better images to use on your header. Like what others said, its a bit blurred and doesnt look professional.

    I like your short blurb at the footer! :)

    Again, your done with the creation. Just improve it and youre on your way mate! Good luck!
