Before you read this review, I just wanted to inform you that affilotheme has a hell lot of features and explaining each feature in detail has made this a lengthy post but take my word it is worth reading this post completely before you purchase affilotheme. Let’s get into some action now.

This affilotheme review cannot be complete without showing a demo on a live wordpress blog. Excuse me for the website because it is just a test site and please note that it took me just 5 minutes to customize the wordpress theme to suite the purpose.

- Product Website: Affilotheme.
- Installation help: Step by step instructions are given in the members area don’t worry.
- Affilotheme Bonus : You get 1 year free hosting for 5 blogs!! yes you read that right:). It is not over yet, along with the theme you get access to affilorama premium (1 month).

After installing affilotheme, all the above mentioned features appear on your wordpress admin dashboard. Some inside the dashboard screenshots are shown below so that you get a better idea about affilotheme wordpress theme.
Now in the “Layout and Theme” options, you are presented with different layouts to choose from – like single sidebar layout or a double sidebar, no sidebar and sidebar on the left or right select them according to your wish. The best thing with layouts is that you can select different layouts for homepage and individual posts/pages.
In the theme settings right now there are 7 themes to choose and for each theme there are 13 color variations available which means a different look for every blog which has affilotheme installed.
Next is my favorite time saver and it adds life to every blog I create, I am talking about header creator. For any blog out there header is the most prominent part of the entire blog which is first seen by the visitor and a good header makes a good impression.
When you launch header creator option, you can see a list of the preloaded images for backgrounds and headers. Again there is no work involved just select the images listed or else upload a custom image from your computer which can be used in creating an attention grabbing header for your blog. This is not over yet, you can also select the text color, font size and style in which you need them to appear. The banner size can also be adjusted according to your needs and when you are done just click “insert into theme” that’s it.
Navigation settings here you can decide what to display in the navigation whether pages or categories or if you do not need any navigation to be displayed then disable it. You can put these navigation links above or below the header using the settings.
Colors and fonts this option gives full control over the looks of the theme meaning you can decide the color, the font, size of the text in the title, links, widgets. Post settings, well here you can decide how your post should appear.
Man I just like this feature (Affiliate redirects), it makes my work so easy and saves a lot of time. Affilotheme comes with an affiliate link generator which will generate cloaked links in a breeze. This is a simple interface and the image below speaks how easy it is.
Now to my favorite and the best part of affilotheme yes it is the squeeze page and sign up form creator. Guys, this single feature alone can be worth over hundreds of dollars because there are so many options here in the dashboard you cannot just take your eyes of them. The designs are awesome and converts really well in any niche, there is so much to tell about this feature alone.
The different opt-in pages in this option are –
- squeeze page
- sidebar form
- feature form
Squeeze pages you can create them with videos embedded or a conventional one, it hardly takes a minute to churn out a good quality squeeze page and the same goes with the sidebar optin form. The squeeze page/optin form creator will generate a short code which you can embed anywhere on the blog to display them. But the most prominent feature is the pop over option because this truly gives a big boost for your lead capture efforts. And this is the highlight of the entire affilotheme there is no doubt about that.
It comes ready with newsletter settings (aweber, getresponse, autoresponseplus provider info) simply fill in the blanks and your optin/squeeze page will be ready.
Import and export theme options – you retain all your current theme settings and export to your computer or use the same settings on another blog with affilotheme installed on it (huge time saver). This is it hope you found my affilotheme review useful in deciding whether it is for you or not. There may be many reviews on this multi purpose wordpress theme but I have given my honest and sincere opinion on this product.
Well last but not least about the creator mark ling who has many successful products under his belt and this time with affilotheme he has done some great help to newbie and non-technical marketers. I appreciate mark ling for a fabulous wordpress theme specially created for affiliate marketing and we do realize the fact that online business is not complete without a website.
