Would you recommend just being point-man on a project like this; coordinating the logistics of getting a site running, or actually learning whatever programming is associated with starting a web-site?
How content driven are these affiliate sites? Would it require articles/blog posts as the attraction to the page and then have links to affiliate sites where products can be purchased? Or is it something entirely different than that?
