“From purchasing my first ever domain, to setting up a hosting account, the team at Tsohost has been efficient, friendly and insightful from the start.”
Affiliate marketing is an increasingly popular way for site owners to make money with few overheads and no hassle. By referring visitors to other websites, either to sign up for a service or to buy a product, the affiliate earns commission based on each referral. Tsohost hosts thousands of affiliate marketers, and even runs its own Affiliate scheme to pay commission on referred hosting signups.
One such marketer in James Harding. His website, Top Dating is a dating review website, which aims to help visitors find the best original, gay, religious, older and adult dating sites available. Top Dating is hosted on Tsohost's Lite Hosting package an ideal WordPress Hosting platform offering fast, reliable, secure hosting. If visitors to top Dating decide to sign up to Tsohost by following the unique affiliate link from the dating website, James receives generous commission.
James selected WordPress as his content management system of choice for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is very simple to use and install. With Tsohost you can install WordPress in one click and can immediately start building a site using a Word-like editor. Secondly, It is fast. Because James wanted to include lots of images on his site he installed the free plugin 'W3 Total Cache' to maximise his site speed. Site speed is very important: visitors will not only avoid a slow site, but Google partially bases rankings on how long a website takes to load.
Most importantly for James, WordPress is also designed to be 'Search Engine Friendly', maximising his position in Google and Bing.
“After pondering domain names, and various top-level options, I was able to narrow down my domain search using Tsohost’s intuitive domain lookup tool. From here, I chose the Tsohost 'Lite' package for £14.99 per year and was up and running in minutes. I installed WordPress immediately and had a basic website online by the evening."
Top Dating launched in August, and with some hefty optimisation, and a modern-looking dating review website which is more agile than some of its competitors, James hopes he can cash-in with the site for the long term.
