I learnt from several different sources that Wordpress is the best way to go if you are serious. So I just stick with Wordpress.

I've reviewed all of the top free website builders and with all of these they produce a good website, but its all the extras, and not having total control. My suggestion is to get your domain and start it here, or if you don't like wordpress there are other builders available. I try to stay away from the all in one you can't really do what you want without paying extra.

What's the point of signing up with WA if you don't do the training offered? That's the whole point--to learn a better, honest, sincere way to earn money online. That includes doing the training the way it was designed. Its built in for a reason. I opted to use WordPress & I hadn't ever used it before. It only took me a few days over a month to go through all four levels (40 classes) of training & SEO & I have a website that's getting traffic as I type. Just because other websites generate a website for you doesn't mean its going to be better. How are you going to complete the lessons if you use the other site? When it says to go in & modify something or write content & post it to your website, how will you do that? How are you going to add your affiliate ads to a website generated by someone else, especially if they don't have that option built in for you to do that? Maybe you should look at some future lessons you will go through here & see if the other website will allow you the option of what the lessons ask you to do, then ask yourself if its really worth it.
I think wix.com is for people who aren't trying to earn money online--all they want is a website just because everyone else has one. I would do some more analyzing & forward thinking before you use wix.com.

@TerryAsh,
That is why I use wordpress - because WA's training relies upon it. I value WA's training more than the website builder I use. That being said, I strongly dislike wordpress and would use something else if WA was oriented in such a way that I could. But, you make a good point. It would be very difficult to follow the training here and apply it at a different site builder, like wix. The training here specifically teaches how to implement things on a wordpress site. Not wix, or weebly.

Hi all thanks for all the feed back. I love Wordpress, it is good for SEO and easy to use. This question I ask one year ago when I join WA. Wix is more for people looking for ready make template for their business, not really good for affiliate marketing.

I agree. I set up several WIX sites when I was first getting started. WIX is extremely limiting, difficult to get search engine ranking and provides a terrible blog.

Stick with WordPress. It is the most popular CMS in the world for a reason. As @TerryAsh says, WA is a terrific training site. The only disadvantage I have found at WA is the lack of cPanel access. That is important to advanced users, but most of us do not even know what a cPanel is and 90% of us will not care.

Hi Terry,
I have used Wix for all my clients in my marketing business and I can say that Wix is absolutely used with new and established businesses, for generating new client inquiries and retaining existing clients. For me, the frustration lies with the fact that I could get a blog up in Wix in an hour, but now I am forced to learn Wordpress and take into account the learning curve, before I can move ahead in my training, etc. It has significantly slowed my progress -- much to my dismay! Thanks for listening!

I have a Wix domain that I want to move to WA. Anyone know how I can go about doing that? I don't see anything on the Wix site that allows it.

You might have to write to Wix to request or check with Kyle on this.

Hey Cena...The competition won't matter...in fact competition is good...it lets you have a niche that folks spend money on..

The trick is to following the training here at WA, which teaches how to drill down in a niche and how to pick KW that are easy to rank for and are KW that buyers use...If you pick the correct KW you will find it is not that hare...By the way PetMeds has an affiliate program...here it is and it pays 16% http://www.1800petmeds.com/affiliateprogram.jsp

Build It and They Will Come!

You are FAR better to use our WordPress Express website builder here at Wealthy Affiliate to build your site. I do not suggest using WIX, their templates are fluffy with little focus on the user experience. Fancy Graphics, large images, and such is VERY poor for Internet marketing, SEO, and the overall visitor experience.

WARNING: DO NOT use WIX for your website.

Hi Carson thanks a lot. I take your advice seriously. Will work on a site using wordpress. I have chosen niches regarding pets stuff. But by promoting Ebook and traning stuff to pet owner seem not easy. As there a lot of free help for pets owner on Youtube and other sources.

Hmm ok, Carson, that's interesting why is that? I use it for my local guitar lessons. No complains except for the costs of removing ads. I am ranked on the first page of Google with the dutch term for guitar lessons in my area.

Maybe for other purposes such as bloggin wix could be a bad idea?

I'm with a lot of people on this board... I really hate using wordpress, even though it is the most customisable site.. I don't quite understand how fancy graphics and images make a site unsuitable for affiliate marketing. I know content is important, but if a site isn't visually pleasing to look at, won't that just drive people away? I know I would rather visit a more attractive site than a 'cheap looking' one.
I have tried both wix and Weebly, but feel wix is the better of the two... Although I haven't attempted to monetize my wix sites, I'm pretty sure it's one of the few free platforms where that is allowed...

I created I used wordpress to create a site on here for affiliate marketing purposes, but it takes really long to customise wordpress sites which chews up a lot of data usage ( I don't have unlimited internet) and I am thinking a 'simpler' site that enables a few blog posts and links to amazon products might be a better way to go than sticking to a static format that ( I personally) find very difficult to adapt.

Even though my goal is to use my site for promotions, I can't afford to pay for hosting, and I feel I need several sites which are free... I also want my sites to be attractive and professional looking, which isn't always the case with wordpress unless you spend a long time customising their sites.

I will still use the free wordpress templates on here for learning purposes, but if I want to generate a decent income I'm going to have to also create other sites.
