Legions of health-food enthusiasts keep jumping on the gluten-free bandwagon. In fact, it’s become common for people to think that ‘gluten-free’ means healthier (if Miley Cyrus says so…), even for those without gluten sensitivity. Google’s trends (left) tell the story, and fashion brands (Zara, right) take notice. The site can therefore become quite popular (not a coincidence that Amazon have thousands of gluten free products) because – sick or not – health is always a popular niche.
However, besides addressing the health and weight-loss obsessed mentioned above, the site also syndicates content related to people with actual gluten-related disorders, such as of course celiac disease, wheat allergy and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. In fact, we have subdivided the ‘news’ in three categories (as per top menu): ‘celiac news’, ‘gluten-free news’, and gluten-free recipes (this only would make an entire website since recipes & diets are always a magnet).
The site is an autoblog with two automations. One to pull in posts i.e. articles (from the major gluten related websites and blogs), another to pull in affiliate products (from Amazon), and videos (from YouTube). These categories (and sub-categories for products) are reflected in the top menu.
The site is in ‘blog’ style with the main central section showing the first two posts ‘featured’ and then the rest in two columns. These posts are made of syndicated content mingled with products and videos. Clicking on the post title opens the post on site if it is an Amazon product (or video), or on site/at the originating syndicated site if it is an article (your choice). Clicking on the top menu entries shows excerpts as usual, but when clicking Videos we show full content (i.e. the video thumbnail, which plays the video – in a large lightbox – when clicked. This way, visitors won’t need to click twice to watch the video).
The site comes with a large inventory of 340+ products already posted (subdivided in 17 categories!) and one of the two plugins used for the automation keeps pulling from Amazon without any work from your side. When visitors click on products ‘buy now’ icon they get redirected to Amazon to complete their purchase and you make a profit (you make a profit even when they end up buying something else, since Amazon drops a 24-hours cookie on their device). Also, the site already has lots of articles and videos, these again get continuously pulled in automatically.
Finally, the site also has plenty of static adverts to further enhance monetization, contact/privacy pages, social ‘likes’ on every post, an opt-in box, tags (i.e. 100% related keywords, as it comes there’s 1,000+ already) etc. etc.
The site uses the latest (and best: Genesis) code available (WordPress, theme, plugins etc.), it is beautifully mobile responsive, requires no maintenance to work and is therefore a must in every affiliate marketer portfolio. As always comprehensive instructions are also included.
