Amazon Associates Tips: Make Money With Amazon Affiliate Program

Amazon Associates Tips: Make Money With Amazon Affiliate Program

Amazon Associates is one of the oldest and most popular affiliate programs. In fact, Amazon Associates is one of the first online affiliate marketing programs and was launched in 1996.

If you’ve been blogging for a while, you must be aware of how trusted brand Amazon is. So if you’re making successful sales from your blogs, you’ll receive payments every month without any failure. If you are getting a decent amount of traffic from search engines (organic traffic is the key to making more sales from Amazon affiliates), you will definitely make decent income each and every month from Amazon associates. 

1. Niche Selection Is Crucial

we’ll get to the actual methods we can use on our websites in the next tips, but the first thing we want to say is that the niche you choose is the absolute most important decision you can make.

we love to target physical product focused niches and keywords

It’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.

2. Link To Products Inside Your Content

Roughly half of our Amazon income comes from text links posted inside the content area of a blog post or page.Simple text links in the content of an article are the most effective way to get web visitors to click. People trust the content on the age more  than any other area of the website and we know this because the tracking data we’ve collected.

3. Make Product Images Clickable Affiliate Links:

The second best thing here we found is next to a simple text link is to use images of the product we’re talking about and make them clickable like this cool usb missile launcher:

Roughly 15% of my total Amazon income has come from simply making all of the product images on my websites clickable affiliate links.

4. Link To Amazon.com As Many Times Possible

We suggest to this in the previous few tips but we want to make sure we understand that each link inside one of our article is another opportunity for a visitor to click through and make their way onto Amazon.com.It’s common for us to link to Amazon five to ten times in a single article.

5. Product Review Articles Convert The Best

product review is directly related to our niche this is  easy way to gather high CTR and increased sales, but only if our 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.

6.Build An Email List

We have probably heard this a hundred times by people telling you to build an email list from the blogger and internet marketing crowd, but building an email list is way easier on a physical product oriented website.

Why? People don’t have their guard up when they are researching a physical product to purchase (when compared to other purchase decisions online i.e. digital goods). So what we would like to do is offer some type of freebie like a buyers guide or some type of information that provides more details about the products they’re researching.

On the flip side, I’d love for you to join my email list for this blog but Iwehave to be a little more convincing by showing you that we are credible resource first.

For my newsletter provider we use Aweber and highly recommend them. Overall we could attribute at least five to ten percent of my total income due to my email listsbecause we like to focus on promoting products heavily to my lists during the holidays.

7. Write Sales And Promos During The Holidays

we 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.we target each holiday because Amazon creates dedicated sales page when holidays come around. The deals shared on these pages are generally really too good.

So what we’ll do is put together in an article of all the top products that are on sale in niche using the tips we’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.

8. Sell Large Quantities Of Inexpensive Products To Boost Your Payout On High Priced Products

One thing we do is have websites that are set up in lower competition niches where the items typically aren’t as expensive and where it’s easier to sell these products in larger quantities ($50 or less). Then we have other niche sites that sell more expensive products. So this way we get to use the increased quantity of sales from these lower priced product websites to help me get up into higher payout brackets so instead of making 6% on that high end item wec will get 8% instead.

9. Use Multiple Tracking ID’s For Each Website

By default Amazon assigns you one tracking ID like blahblahblah-20 but you can create additional tracking ID’s here up to a total of 100. If you hit that total you can always ask for more so feel free to be liberal with your creation of tracking ID’s for your websites.

You wouldn’t install the same Google Analytics code on every single website you own right? Of course not, because you wouldn’t be able to tell how much traffic each of your websites were receiving individually. So the same thing can be said for tracking the money we

Can  make on our websites (and yet people still tell me they use only one Amazon tracking ID for all of their websites /facepalm). In the past I’ve gone so far as to create 15 different tracking ID’s for use on a single website.

10.Use EasyAzon To Save Time And Make More Money With Amazon

One of the ways I’ve also been able to make good money with Amazon is to automatically populate information from a WordPress plugin that I had developed based on the needs I had for building Amazon centric websites. The result was EasyAzon. The plugin allows us to insert information and affiliate links to Amazon in a much faster way than creating the links yourself by hand from Amazon.com.

Short Summary: Basically what the plugin does is allow you to quickly insert a text based affiliate link, the image of the product as an affiliate link, a product information grid, convert US Amazon links to UK, GR etc. via link localization etc. etc. and have all those things be affiliate links to Amazon.com so it does a great job of improving click through rates.
