Will Use Gallery Plug-In Instead
If you've read my 2 prior most recent WA blog posts, I mentioned the possibility of using a WordPress Amazon Affiliate theme to create an Amazon affiliate ecommerce store/blog.
I got this idea from watching a YouTube tutorial in which http://bowwowtech.co.uk/ was created step by step.
Here are some other sites created by WP Eagle (name of YouTube channel and website):
I don't know exactly how much these particular stores make (but he said in one of his YouTube videos that people make anywhere from just enough to buy beer each month (and some are satisfied with that) to up to a few thousand each month. Personally, I just don't imagine making very much from this website ecommerce model. Although his sites look okay, in general, I think these sort of sites look kind of tacky and amateur and therefore less persuasive to get shoppers or buyers.
After turning it over in my head, I was going to just go ahead with it anyway because I'm tired of being indecisive and, besides, I'd only planned on creating 2 websites in this way, and then create a "regular" authoritative website on another niche after these 2 websites are established.
But now, I think I'll go with using a gallery plug-in to display products along with a blog, similar to https://footballsnackhelmets.com/ instead. I think this way looks more professional and authoritative, although it has to be set up right. Its setup is not as clear-cut as using the WordPress Amazon Affiliate theme. I won't be following Jay's layout exactly, but will have to design my own layout.
The main thing is I'll be using a "regular" WordPress theme and a gallery plug-in for the images linking to Amazon instead.
And this decision is final.
