I want to create a Wordpress site with static pages that each recreate a typical "sales hub" layout, complete with Amazon capsules and hopefully other affiliate banners/capsules too. My aim is to have the capsules on the right and the text flowing round them on the left.
Does anyone have any recommendations for suitable free themes? I know a tiny bit of HTML but I don't want to have to do a massive amount of coding.
I use Weaver myself for most of my sites....two of my newer ones have links on my profile if you want to see them. The Decorating for Tranquility site has a lot of affiliates but the Cutting Board Care site has a lot of Amazon products in most of the articles (if you go in and look at them...the second most recent one "Cleaning Wood Cutting Boards" has Amazon on it). You can put Amazon anywhere you want, including carousal widgets, etc.
I have these set up with sidebars on both sides so I can have affiliate banners on both sides but this is totally customizable so you can set it up to offer the same format as Hubpages with less ads.
Also, you don't have to set these up as a gallery display like I have them on the front page, you can have standalone pages...I just have these set up this way because their both new and I'm constantly adding to them.
Weaver is very easy to use! Hope this helps a little.
HH, I really like the look of your Tranquility site. Does it do well with your affiliates?
Thanks and yes! I'm actually surprised at how well. Sold a kid's bean bag chair yesterday, a water fountain about five days ago and a hammock right before that. It's been pretty consistent so far. I'm actually more surprised at the Cutting Board site.... that tea affiliate I have (can't remember which one) does very well.
I believe the Socrates Theme (not free but there is a free trial, so you could check it out first) is designed well in both SEO terms and monetisation layout etc.I know a no. of successful marketers that recommend it. I've been meaning to trial it myself but haven't got round to it yet.
Thanks for your help guys.
In the end I went with a free theme called For Women-Female which is slightly pink and girly (to go with the pink and girly avatar that I'm using). And I found a marvellous plugin called Easy Columns - I can put up to four Amazon "capsules" side by side, or fewer capsules interspersed with text.

Hi all,I'm presuming this was answered somewhere, but a basic search doesn't yield a concise answer. Apologies if this is redundant.I'm currently signed into the HubPages Amazon Program. Does this mean that I can utilize the capsules PLUS use two of my own Amazon affiliate links? Is it one or the...

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

I often see barely related Amazon ads on pages here. Sometimes, I see ads that seem plain perverse -- ads for Apple TV on an apple pie recipe page, for example.I'm sure a lot of the most unrelated (and harmful) Amazon ads come from the 'choose keywords' feature in Amazon capsules.Might be helpful...
