This sentence is indeed true but you will want to know the kind of website that you are suppose to create. If you are just starting out, you want to develop an acceptable website that will enhance your affiliate business. So what is the kind of website you should create?
The first thing that I will always tell the newbies is to create a simple squeeze page where the main objective is to get the visitors to join your newsletter so that they become your subscribers. You will drive the traffic to your squeeze page and your visitors will be redirected to your affiliate link once they have become your subscribers.
The main reason you want to create this kind of website is because you will be able to start building your own list of subscribers and you will also be able to promote the product almost instantly. When you build your list, you will have a long term asset as you will be able to follow up with them and promote more relevant product to them. If your visitors have already taken the action to join your list, you will want to encourage the flow by promoting the products to them. Since they have taken action, the chances of them taking action again to purchase the products will be higher.
Your website should consist of the following components so that you can get them to join your list.
– Attention Grabbing headline to capture their attention

– A photo of yourself so that they know that the person is serious in the business

Do have all these components in your website and you will have a good website to start growing your affiliate marketing business.
