What Is an Amazon Affiliate Program?
Top 12 Ways To Make Money With Amazon Affiliate Program:
Niche Selection Is CrucialI’ll get to the actual methods I use on my websites in the next tips, but the first thing I want to say is that the niche you choose is the absolute most important decision you can make.
I love to target physical product focused niches and keywordsIt’s easiest to make money using Amazon’s affiliate program if the people coming to your website are looking for a specific product that your website discusses. It’s more difficult to use a website like my blog here and make money linking to physical products because the people coming here are looking for advice on how to earn money online – not what iPod speakers they should buy.
Link To Products Inside Your ContentRoughly half of my Amazon income comes from basic text links posted inside the content body area of a blog post or page.
Example: Check out this cool helicopter. I’ve been covering these RC helicopters for months and I’ve never seen this one priced for only $54.99 well off it’s $129.95 list price.
Simple text links in the content of an article are the most effective way to get web visitors to click. People trust the body of the content on a page more so than any other area of the website and I know this because the tracking data I’ve collected.
Promote Quality ProductsThis one is very important to be a millionaire by using amazon affiliate program. You should only be promoting quality products! Everybody is the same, we all like to make sure that we are getting good value for money. Promoting products that are rubbish, just because they offer a better commission for you, won’t work. Respect your readers and promote quality products, with good reputations, that they will find useful.
Link To Amazon.com As Many Times PossibleI alluded to this in the previous few tips but I want to make sure you understand that each link inside one of your articles is another opportunity for a visitor to click through and make their way onto Amazon.com. This is the key to success on amazon affiliate program.
It’s common for me to link to Amazon five to ten times in a single article (more if I’m doing a product review).
What is an affiliate link?
In affiliate programs, it's a special URL that contains the ID or username of the affiliate. This URL is used by the advertiser to track all traffic the affiliate sends to the advertiser's site as a part of the affiliate program.
Book ReviewsAmazon affiliate program has the largest collection of books to sell. I particularly like book reviews because there isn’t a niche out there without relevant reading material to be found on Amazon. And while it’s a low-ticket item (though not always), books are often impulse buys, especially for Kindle.
Product Review Articles Convert The BestDoing a quality product review for a product directly related to your niche is a very easy way to garner higher click thru rates and increased sales, but only if your review is higher quality.
Ideally you contact the manufacturer’s marketing team or PR agency and get them to send you a demo unit of the product to review, but this takes a lot of effort and may not be worth it on a smaller traffic site (at first).
You want to convince the reader to investigate their purchase options by the time they finish reading an article, which is why I’ll always include links to all of the products mentioned in a review at the end of the article. That way it’s an easy transition from learning about the product during your review and then at the end it’s time to make a purchase.
Write Sales And Promos During The HolidaysI typically made between $500 and $1,000 a day every day during Black Friday Week, Cyber Monday and Cyber Week. It is lower during other holidays like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Presidents Day, Valentines Day etc. but you can still promote various sales during these holidays as well. I target every holiday because Amazon creates an actual dedicated sales page every time one of these holidays come around. The deals shared on these pages are generally really good too. (Key Tip: Amazon affiliate program works better during holidays because most of the people love to do shopping on this period, take advantage of it)
So what I’ll do is put together an article of all the top products that are on sale in my niche using the tips I’ve shared earlier like linking as many times as possible, making the product image clickable and then sending out an email to my list etc. to get even more conversions.
Insert Buy Now Button Into Your Articles
This is something that EasyAzon could do for you, but if you don’t want to spend the money you can simply insert your own buy now button and turn it into an Amazon affiliate link.
Just Get People On To Amazon.comI know 30% of my earnings came from products people bought because I happened to be the one that sent them onto Amazon.com. For example, I sold a watch a while ago for $5,000 and got a $400 commission but I don’t even own a website that even remotely discusses watches. This is one of the other reasons why I love using Amazon affiliate program.
When you send someone to Amazon.com you get a percentage of anything they buy for the next 24 hours (30 days if they added an item to their cart) so if you can just get them onto the website and they happen to buy something completely unrelated you’ll get the money for it.
Amazon spends millions of dollars on improving the way they get people to convert. The fact that they provide a custom user experience for every person that goes to Amazon.com based on the buying behavior and viewing patterns tells me they know what it takes to close a sale. Some of the best closing advice I can give is to simply find ways to get your visitors onto the Amazon.com webpage and they’ll take care of the rest.
Go back and link up popular postsYou wake up, and that one post you wrote two years ago has suddenly taken off on Pinterest and you have 10,000 views on it before you’ve even had a cup of coffee. Congrats! That’s awesome! But, hey, you’ve got some work to do. Go into that post and add affiliate links! Even if you linked it up before, use this as an opportunity to clean up the post, and get those affiliate links front and center.
Make Images ClickableYour images are prime real estate for getting traffic, especially if they are of the product or related, so make sure that you make your images clickable as well – with an affiliate link. Often, a reader may even just click on an image to get a closer look and suddenly they’re on Amazon looking closer at the details. Nice.
