Now its time to find a theme.
To install the Theme you first Download the .zip file from Themeforest. Then you have to unzip the outer folder but leave the internal Theme folder zipped. WordPress requires the Theme folder to be zipped in order to install it.
Once you build out your pages that show the details and benefits of the affiliate product then you will need to add you affiliate links as hyperlinks to either buttons or text within the articles. These links will redirect the user to the affiliates website so they can make a purchase.
Your webpage should now look like the demo in Themeforest after you install the Theme and load the demo data. Once the Theme is installed its time to edit the pages and add the content. Detailed description on how to edit your WordPress site
