A theme for Wordpress is the overall look and feel of your affiliate website which includes the layout, images, fonts, etc. The BEST Wordpress themes for affiliate marketing are:
Don't make the mistake of choosing a theme that is flashy, bright, and Las Vegassy. Themes like this are slower for your sites visitors because there is more crap that has to load to render the web page and they distract the visitor from your objective which is CLICKING YOUR AFFILIATE LINKS and purchasing so you make a commission.
Frankly, most Wordpress themes suck and should be avoided. Remember you goal is not to impressed everyone about how great your site is.
There are plenty of Wordpress themes that are 100% free that fit the bill. They are listed below. Most Wordpress themes that are marketed SPECIFICALLY for affiliate marketing cost a few dollars. Most of them meet the above qualifications as well. I will list them below also.
Wordpress themes that are simple, uncluttered, fast, with easy to read fonts and with minimal distractions for your website visitors.

A critical part of tweaking your Wordpress for affiliate marketing also involves the install of a few Wordpress plugins. A plugin is just a pre packaged piece of code that adds functionality and features to your Wordpress site. The Wordpress plugins we are interested in:
Must have Wordpress Plugins
The following Wordpress plugins are necessary to optimize your site for making money online as an affiliate marketer.
Optional Wordpress Plugins
The following plugins are optional. They are NOT required to optimize your site for making money online. You can have a look at them and decide for yourself if they are for you or not. My personal recommendation is skip these FOR NOW until you have finished everything else to set up and tweak your Wordpress. You can always come back later and decide if you wish to install any of these Wordpress plug ins.
The procedure for installing a Wordpress plugin is almost identical to installing a Wordpress Theme.
Below is a checklist or action plan. Nothing happens until you take action. Complete each of the items below starting with the first. Check them off as you complete them.
