How to go about an Affiliate Marketing website

So let's say I have joined an Affiliate program and I want to build a new website / blog to promote the affiliate links and products.
How should i design it. Won't google penalize the website for just being about Affiliate marketing only?
I've heard people start Reviews based blogs to market affiliate links within product reviews. Are there any other approaches to it?

Here's what I do:
I find a niche I'm interested in.
Make sure products are being sold in that niche.

If all looks good I then find what people are searching for - what are their pains, struggles and what type of questions are they asking in that niche.

You can find all that by using keyword tools like kwfinder, ubersuggest (neil patel just purchased it). I use semrush, it's a bit more advanced and cost $99 month.

You can also find what they are searching for by reading forums, sites like qoura, yahoo answers and read other blogs in your niche.

Then it's time to find how you can best help them. That's what it's all about ' Helping '. Help someone with their pain or problem and you build trust.

Ideally, the solution is the product you're promoting.

Create content that is valuable for the web and helps people.
Be in the business of helping and the money will come.

Then, create your site with helpful articles, review products that answer peoples questions about the product, get them on a list or your affiliate link.

When I create a site - I always add my affiliate links as I'm publishing the post. I have no idea why people say - don't add affiliate links for x weeks, that to me is weird.

Add them straight away.

When you build affiliate sites - don't sell to people. Instead - you recommend. That's where a lot of people go wrong, they try to sell products...

The affiliates job is to recommend people to the sales page. The sales page does the selling.

Don't over complicate things either, something else most beginners do. Keep things super simple and just take action. I know people who spend weeks worrying about the design of their site, or thinking about what content they need.

Just start.
Keep things simple.
Help people in your niche.
Recommend products that solve their problems or pains.
Promote your site - find where your audience is.
Build backlinks and join the conversation.

Thanks for such helpful tips. I'll keep this one thing in mind that you said "Don't try to sell the products. Just recommend them"

No problem at all.
I think a lot of people try and sell as affiliates. Yes it can work, depending on how you go about it but it's much better to recommend something - people see straight through the whole sales pitch these days.

Aside from the good tips above, you should realize that no matter what the niche is, you have to remember who your market is and what it wants, then you can easily create a compelling content that Google can recommend. The key is to always create something that your market will like to know or read.

Besides the fantastic hints above, you need to realize that regardless of what the market is, you need to remember that the market is and exactly what it needs, then you can readily produce a persuasive content which Google can advocate. The essential thing is to always produce something your market will love to understand or read.
