Why I created this toolkit

In the past, whenever I  was setting up a new product comparison website to try to increase my passive income using affiliate marketing, it was always a struggle trying to find out which of the plugins I would have to install before I could actually start creating some content. Therefore, to save myself  some time, a lot of frustration and many headaches during the creation of all of my future affiliate marketing websites, I decided to put together another toolkit so that whenever I’m creating a new WordPress-based product comparison site intended to make money from affiliate marketing, I can now simply search for this post and find a list of the essential plugins for any of my new WordPress websites. If you would like to make use of it as well, by all means go ahead.

How to use this toolkit

Simply clicking the name of a plugin name, i.e. the drop-down menu, will reveal its description including a link to the WordPress plugin page (as shown in the following GIF).How to use Sjoerd Blok's affiliate marketing tools
