Top 12 Ways To Make Money With Amazon Affiliate Program:
Niche Selection Is Crucial
I’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 theabsolute most important decision you can make.
I love to target physical product focused niches and keywords
It’s easiest to make money using Amazon’s affiliate program if thepeople coming to your website are looking for a specific product thatyour website discusses. It’s more difficult to use a website like myblog here and make money linking to physical products because the people coming here are looking for advice on how to earn money online – notwhat iPod speakers they should buy.
Link To Products Inside Your Content
Roughly 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 contenton a page more so than any other area of the website and I know thisbecause the tracking data I’ve collected.
Promote Quality Products
This 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 bettercommission 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 Possible
I alluded to this in the previous few tips but I want to make sureyou understand that each link inside one of your articles is anotheropportunity for a visitor to click through and make their way ontoAmazon.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.
Amazon affiliate program has the largest collection of books to sell. I particularly like book reviews because thereisn’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 Best
Doing a quality product review for a product directly related to your niche is a very easy way to garner higher click thru rates andincreased sales, but only if your review is higher quality.
Ideally you contact the manufacturer’s marketing team or PR agencyand get them to send you a demo unit of the product to review, but thistakes 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 alwaysinclude 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 theproduct during your review and then at the end it’s time to make apurchase.
Write Sales And Promos During The Holidays
I 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 varioussales during these holidays as well. I target every holiday becauseAmazon creates an actual dedicated sales page every time one of theseholidays come around. The deals shared on these pages are generallyreally 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 productsthat are on sale in my niche using the tips I’ve shared earlier likelinking as many times as possible, making the product image clickableand then sending out an email to my list etc. to get even moreconversions.
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 cansimply insert your own buy now button and turn it into an Amazonaffiliate link.
Just Get People On To Amazon.com
I 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 $400commission but I don’t even own a website that even remotely discusseswatches. This is one of the other reasons why I love using Amazonaffiliate program.
When you send someone to Amazon.com you get a percentage of anythingthey buy for the next 24 hours (30 days if they added an item to theircart) so if you can just get them onto the website and they happen tobuy something completely unrelated you’ll get the money for it.
Amazon spends millions of dollars on improving the way they getpeople to convert. The fact that they provide a custom user experiencefor every person that goes to Amazon.com based on the buying behaviorand 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 therest.
Go back and link up popular posts
You 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 Clickable
Your images are prime real estate forgetting traffic, especially if they are of the product or related, somake sure that you make your images clickable as well – with anaffiliate 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 thedetails. Nice.
