In The Community
Amazon wouldn’t be as big as it is now if it weren’t because of its people, and so the company is putting an enormous effort into giving back to the communities that have helped it thrive, with special consideration to those communities where its employees and
Amazon doesn’t only want to be the best online store there is, it also wants to make ecommerce and technology better overall, for everyone, including its competition! That is why it has introduced innovations such as drone delivery, one click ordering and amazon fresh.

Well, yes! Amazon.com has a wide variety of options when it comes to using its platform as a money printing machine: you can become an amazon seller, you can offer your services, you can sell your own apps and self-publish your books or music.
But there is a more novel approach to money making offered by amazon to make what is known as a passive income for yourself, and that is by becoming an amazon affiliate, which will allow you to make money off selling stuff on amazon without having to stock products of your own!
What is an amazon affiliate?
To understand what an amazon affiliate is, you need to learn what affiliate marketing is first, and affiliate marketing is nothing but promoting products sold by others in order to drive a sale and earn money by commission. In this case you will be earning money off of products being sold on the amazon marketplace
How do you become an amazon affiliate?
Becoming an amazon affiliate is as simple as going to the amazon homepage and logging in to your amazon account, then scrolling all the way down to the “make money with us”
section and clicking on “become an affiliate”.
How do you make money with amazon as an affiliate?
To make money with amazon as an affiliate you will simply have to promote products from the amazon marketplace, and with over a million products available it should not be hard to find a good product and a ready to buy audience for it.
And there a lots and lots of product categories that you can promote, from video games to televisions, from pc components to toys and jewelry. What’s more, you will be able to
promote stuff from broader categories such as amazon gift cards, digital music and amazon devices, with commissions ranging from as low as 4% to as high as 10% depending on the category!
Now, how do you promote these items to make money? The answer to that is that you have multiple channels to promote your offers from, the most popular being affiliate websites, but you can easily use social media pages as well.
You can link to any amazon product by simply grabbing the item URL from amazon itself whether from your website or by way of Facebook or twitter updates, to give you an example. You can also use customized product links to show product information on your affiliate sites, as well as stylish graphical banners.
Another stylish and practical way to monetize your amazon oriented content are the “aStores”, which are simple yet elegant product feature websites to earn affiliate commissions the easiest way.
You will only need to offer value to your referrals by creating product oriented content to guide people into making informed purchasing decisions!
Why Amazon Affiliate Marketing is your best choice
So far you have been able to see how it is that amazon.com can be a goldmine for anyone interested in putting in the effort to help amazon push sales of products in its own marketplace, but you are also aware that amazon did not invent this business practice.
In fact, affiliate marketing is one of the most popular ways to monetize web content and there are people out there killing it with what are commonly known as “CPA” or “cost per action” networks, and you might be tempted to try that out too.
But the truth is that, as good as CPA networks are, they come with their own disadvantages, one of them being how difficult it is to get started on any CPA network.
Another disadvantage of promoting CPA offers from these networks is that they sometimes can look spammy.
As an amazon affiliate though you will have the backing of the most recognizable brand in the online retail space, and people won’t think twice on clicking any link that leads to an amazon product page because everybody loves and trusts amazon to an insane degree! So let’s take a quick look at reasons why amazon affiliate marketing is the best choice for you!
Amazon is a trusted brand
We already mentioned that amazon is a loved and trusted brand, but how far does this go? Well, amazon.com is the number one ecommerce retailer, visited by over 250 million people in any given month. Ask anyone where they last bought something online and they will tell you that they did it on amazon!
High Commissions that add up
With a base rate of 4%, you might think that making money on amazon would take you a lot of time, but keep in mind that these rates add up with each sale, and that rates can go up to 10% depending on the product category.
You earn by each sale, not by product
Basically, every affiliate network out there will pay you only when you make a sale for a specific product or service, but amazon makes you money for every purchase made by anyone that lands on amazon through any of your affiliate links.
So, it doesn’t matter if you are promoting treadmills and somebody instead buys a TV through your amazon affiliate link, you make money off each sale! This means that if someone ends up making a $5,000 purchase through a link leading to a $10 product, you still make a commission off that $5,000 sale!
It is easy to set up
Becoming an amazon affiliate will only take you about 5 to 10 minutes of your time. You will simply need to login to your amazon account, then sign up to the amazon associates program and you are good to go!
The days of waiting a week to be accepted into an affiliate network are over! Besides, it is really, really easy to integrate the affiliate links to your affiliate sites!
Picking a Hot Amazon Niche
So is your body ready already?
Of course it is! It is easy to get drawn in by the possibilities offered by becoming an amazon affiliate, especially because it allows you the luxury of running a business with the economic benefits of ecommerce without the logistical headaches!
But now you might be wondering “how do I get started?” Well, as with everything good and profitable in life, you need to start in incremental steps, and you have to start by thinking about what you are going to promote in order to make some good money as an amazon affiliate.
Did you think that this would be as easy as just putting a lot of amazon product links on a website and then calling it a day?
Well good luck with that! Because the first step into becoming a successful affiliate is finding out the type of niche products that are going to make you the most money as an affiliate!
Start by Checking The Advertising Fee rates
We recommend you take a look at the advertising fee rates associated with each product category before picking a niche to promote, because these fee rates combined with the price of your final sales will determine the final commissions that you earn through your amazon affiliate sales.
To find these advertising fees simply go to the amazon associates homepage at “affiliate-
program.amazon.com” and click on “advertising fees”. Scroll down to the “Fixed Standard Program Fee Rates for Specific Product Categories”, where you will find the current fee rates for specific product categories.
As you can see, fees vary from category to category, and some are higher than others.
This will be important in one of our next steps.
Find Popular And Best Selling Categories
A good starting point is to simply select to promote niche products that belong in very popular categories. A good way to find popular categories and best seller products is by going to “amazon.com/bestsellers”, where you will find up to date and real time information about which products and niches are the most popular among amazon customers.
You shouldn’t be surprised to learn that the most popular niche products are consumer goods and every day products from categories such as clothing, electronics, pet care, baby care, personal care, appliances, automotive, fitness, sports, and home improvement, and you can find these popular categories listed on the left side of the page.
An easy way to figure out when products in a niche are selling like hot cakes is when their categories are featured on amazon’s best sellers section, such as in the case of the “electronics” category here, which we are going to check.
Look For High-Priced Products to Promote
Once you find a cool, popular category, make sure that there are actually products that can make you a fat and steady profit in there. You see, there are two approaches to earning by commission as an affiliate: you either earn by selling tons of low priced products or you earn big by selling high priced products.
Take for example that you decide to promote cheap Bluetooth headphones just because they sell fast, but have in mind that a low priced product won’t make you much relative to the product’s fee rate, and that most of these items are bought directly from the marketplace.
The best approach then is to find a niche with high priced items. In our case, we are going to select “home theater systems” as our niche because home theater systems are some of the most expensive items found in the “electronics” category.
Another benefit of picking high priced niche products to promote is that people spending high amounts of money on a single product like to make informed purchases, and they tend to search for information on multiple sites before deciding over a product, which will direct organic search engine traffic to your affiliate site.
Another benefit is that high price items are bought by a portion of the population with good spending power, which means that people buying one of your expensive products are also likely to buy something else through your affiliate link, making you a larger commission!
Selecting some Hot Products to Promote
So by now you surely are all pumped up about becoming an amazon affiliate, and with good reason! You have seen how easy it can be to find good niches to promote when you know how to do it right.
And we wouldn’t be surprised to know that you already found the ones to promote on your amazon affiliate site following the steps that we taught you in our past chapter, but we are not done with that just yet!
You see, once people find a good niche to promote, they tend to think that it will be enough to just review lots of products on their niche of choice, put the links in
and call it a day, but you will hardly make good money by doing so.
This is why in this chapter we are going to show, step by step, the strategy behind selecting the hottest products in your niche!
Best Seller Lists Are the key
The amazon list of best sellers is a great source of information about what you should promote as an amazon affiliate, especially because these best sellers lists will tell you which products are top sellers in the marketplace.
Another benefit of looking at these best sellers lists is that you will be getting up to date information about hot selling products, so you can be aware of which products are trending so you can leverage their traffic.
How can you select hot products to promote from the Best Sellers Lists?
In our previous chapter we showed you how to easily find a best sellers section for all product categories by going to the “amazon.com/bestsellers” URL. From there, you can easily find which of the hottest products are both in your niche and in your niche’s category.
The way the amazon best sellers page is designed will make it easier to find the hottest products in your niche’s category first. Start by going to the link leading to your niche’s category on the left. In our case, we click on “electronics”.
Here you will be able to find every best seller product on every other niche from your niche’s category. You will be able to locate your niche on the subcategory menu on the left, in our case “home audio and theater”.
Note how you will find every best selling product from this subcategory. But because you need to find the products in your niche, you will have to look on the left side menu. In our case, we click on “home theater systems”.
Now let’s click on “complete home theater systems” because those are the high priced products that we are going to promote on our affiliate site. Remember that these will vary depending on the products that you select.
Finding The Top Performers In Your Niche
Once you find the best selling products in your niche you will be able to sort them out and select the hottest ones from the “hot new releases” “most wished for”, and “gift ideas” lists found in the best sellers section of your high priced niche product.
The “hot new releases” lists can give you ideas about new products that can be marketed to people that are always on the lookout for the newest products and gadgets. These lists are especially good if you are promoting electronics, video games and smart devices.
The “most wished for” lists can give you a very good idea about purchasing intent, because these items are always added to wish lists by people that are going to buy these items on a later date, making these products worthwhile for promotion.
And the “gift ideas” lists will give you a good idea of what items most people consider to be nice gifts because these are the items that amazon users are gifting to others, which you can casually mention on your product promotions.
This is the easiest way to find the hottest and most profitable products to promote as an affiliate on the amazon marketplace!
Creating an Amazon Affiliate Website
So you have made up your mind about how awesome it is to become an amazon affiliate, and have decided to take your first steps into becoming the best amazon affiliate that you can by following up the advice revealed in our previous chapters.
In this respect, you started looking for a nice niche that you would enjoy promoting and started navigating the amazon marketplace up and down in order to find the best and most profitable products that amazon can offer to its affiliates.
But now the time has come to start tinkering with the technical aspects of getting your amazon affiliate business up and running, and we are talking about creating your amazon affiliate website with a few clicks.
Many people would be tempted to leave this job to someone else, but in this chapter we are going to show you how easy it really is to set up an amazon affiliate website on your own, using popular, easy to use and budget friendly online tools.
What are the benefits of creating an amazon affiliate website?
. Amazon affiliate websites are a cost effective and easy to set up method of monetizing online content
. Amazon affiliate websites offer a very straightforward way of making affiliate marketing
money, unlike traditional affiliate marketing schemes that force you to use intrusive
advertising that you will have to cover with your own money
. Referrals from your website to amazon.com will make you money from any purchase they make
. Using the amazon brand name is a great way to monetize the content on your site because it will help you to reach people that are already looking for help making purchases in the amazon marketplace
What do you need to create an amazon affiliate website?
Creating an amazon affiliate website from scratch is a very easy process when you know how to do it. Many people have to sort that out on their own, but in this chapter we are going to show step by step how to do it and where to find everything that you need in one place.
A “domain name” is simply a string of characters that websites use as their website addresses that you type into your web browser to access. Ideally, your domain name has to resemble your niche, and using keywords related to it to create your domain name will help your amazon affiliate website rank on top of search engine query results.
To get your domain name you have to buy it from a domain vendor. We recommend you to use “hostgator.com” because you will be able to also buy everything else that you need to create your amazon affiliate website from there.
Start by going to the “domains” tab and type your domain name in the “choose your new web address” bar and click on “search” to check its availability. Once you find a good domain name available add it to your cart to buy it before someone else does!
Awesome, now that you have a great domain name, you need hosting for your website. Hosting service is space on an internet server to upload your website and make it available to visitors from around the world.
You can buy excellent hosting service from “hostgator.com.” Go to the “web hosting” tab, where you will find three different hosting plans available: “hatchling plan”, “baby plan” and “business plan”.
We recommend you to select the “baby plan.” This one will give you more for your amazon affiliate business because it will allow you to use it for unlimited domains, to use one click installs and unmetered bandwidth.
Click on “sign up now” to check out and get ready to start building your amazon affiliate website in the following step.
You will need a website builder in order to create your amazon affiliate website the fastest way.
Luckily, hostgator provides a nice selection of website builders for you to choose from.
Simply login to your hostgator “cpanel” after you buy your hosting plan to install your website builder.
WordPress is our website builder of choice, as well as the choice of a million other amazon affiliates, because it is very easy to use and allows for simple yet powerful customization for your amazon affiliate websites.
You can easily install WordPress on your amazon affiliate website from your “hostgator” “cpanel” by clicking on “WordPress 1-click installation”. Once you do, you will be asked to enter your site’s set up information.
First you have to select a domain from your domain list in the “select domain for installation” menu and then enter the name of your site’s directory in the field next to the domain menu and click on “next”.
Now you have to enter your admin info. Start by entering the name of your site in “blog title”, then your admin user name in “admin user”, which is the username that you will use to login to your WordPress site as the administrator. Now enter your “first name” and your “last name”.
Lastly, enter your “admin email”, which will be the main email address that you will use to manage your amazon affiliate site. Once you enter all your information check the “terms of service agreement” box and click on “install”. A progress bar at the top of the screen will let you know the progress of your WordPress installation.
The “installation complete” message will appear on top once WordPress is installed on your amazon affiliate site. Here you will also have the credentials to login to your WordPress account, from where you will be able to manage your new amazon affiliate website. Copy and save your “username” and your “password”.
To login to your WordPress dashboard simply add “/wp-login.php” at the end of your WordPress site URL in your web browser. Now enter your username, your password and click on “log in” to login to your new WordPress dashboard for the first time.
You are now inside your WordPress dashboard, and it is time to start setting up your site so you can later stuff it with awesome amazon affiliate product oriented content. Your amazon affiliate website is barebones the first time that you install WordPress, so the first thing that you have to do is find a nice affiliate oriented theme for your site.
You can do this by going to the “appearance” tab and selecting “themes”. You can look for free affiliate oriented themes by clicking on “add new theme”.
You can use the “search themes” search bar to find themes for affiliates, and we recommend to get started by installing a free theme such as the “reviewgine affiliate” theme, which is a widely used free theme used by many successful affiliates.
Simply hover over it and click on “install”, and then on “activate”. Now your site has been installed a nice affiliate theme that you can edit by using the “customize” button. Here you can see how cool the theme looks, making it easy for visitors to find what they are looking for and then some more.
You can add pages for content categories by using the “pages” tab in your dashboard and clicking on “add new”. Here is where you will create pages to promote your affiliate content.
You can enter the title of your promotional pages in the “enter title” field, and the description of the page in the text field below. You can use the “add media” button to insert images and links within the content of your pages. Use the “featured image” section to insert the image that you are going to use as the main image on your pages.
Once you are ready to publish a page to post product oriented content simply click on “publish”.
Now to add content to these pages you have to use the “posts” tab on the left side menu.
Click on “add new” and you will be taken to an editor with similar features on the “pages” editor.
You will have a “title” field to title your content posts, a text field to enter your written content, the “add media” button to insert images, videos and links within your product posts, a “format” box, a “categories” box to select a category for your posts and a “tags” box to insert tags to make it easier for people to locate your posts using keywords.
Use the “publish” button to publish content here as well!
This is how you will be adding content to populate your amazon affiliate website, and in our following chapter we are going to show you how to create amazing content that will help you boost up your amazon affiliate earnings.
Creating Product Oriented Content
After you choose your niche, select some hot products to promote, create your amazon
affiliate website and sign up for the amazon associates program to create your amazon
associates account, the time comes to start doing the hardest part, the one that will
determine if you make it or if you break it as an amazon affiliate.
We are of course talking about the part where you finally start creating content for your amazon affiliate website, because content is what will attract buyers to your amazon affiliate websites. But why do we say that this is the hardest part?
We say so because creating content for affiliate sites is not easy for the most part, and that is exactly where most affiliate marketers fail, and because of that we are going to show you how to create amazing content for your amazon affiliate sites the easy way.
After all, creating awesome product oriented content for your affiliate sites comes down to following a series of easy to apply strategies, so let us grab you by the hand and guide you all the way through!
Building Product Oriented Pages
Product oriented pages are used in affiliate marketing sites to promote amazon affiliate offers, and the goal of these pages is to drive traffic to any given product page on amazon and foster sales, so in short these pages are designed to generate affiliate income on amazon affiliate websites.
Let’s check what a nice looking, product oriented money page looks like. The first thing that you will notice is that a product oriented page is full of product oriented content, including profitable keywords, product images that link to affiliate offers and long, evergreen product oriented written content.
We recommend you look at successful amazon affiliate sites that promote stuff related to your niche for inspiration. In our case, we are looking at “thewirecutter.com”, an amazon affiliate site that gets over 8 million unique visitors each month and that generates affiliate income in the millions.
The strategies that we are about to reveal next are being used by the most successful and most profitable amazon affiliate sites around, so pay good attention and start applying them as well.
Use Profitable Keywords
“Profitable keywords” are keywords that drive purchasing intent and that are used by people to search for information about products on any given niche when they are ready to make a purchase.
Note that these keywords are not merely used to find product information, they are used for research by people that like to make informed purchases.
See how profitable keywords are used in this affiliate site, as they are not targeting “gaming headphone” but “best gaming headphone”, which is a long tail keyword used by people looking into buying the best gaming headphone available.
So what are they doing here? They are using these long tail keywords so people looking for the “best headphone” or the “best air conditioner” land on these pages. See how they combine “best” with “cheap” to target people looking for the best equipment on a budget.
To give you an example with our niche, we are not going to target “best home theater systems”, but “best 7.1 receivers”. To make sure that a keyword isprofitable, go to the amazon homepage and type it in the search bar. If it is highlighted in the results, then it is indeed profitable!
Profitable keywords should also include brand names in some circumstances, and they have to be used on the title of your product oriented pages, throughout your content and on your tags.
Product images will always drive engagement, period, and you have to use a wide variety of them into your product oriented pages in order to motivate people into buying the products that you are promoting.
Product images work because people mostly make purchasing decisions based on how attractive the products look on product pages. It is very important that the images that you feature on your product oriented pages link to their respective amazon product pages. Product images are best used at the top ofyour content.
Quality Written Content
Of course, your product pages would be nothing without cool and informative written content geared towards telling your visitors what your products are all about and why they should make a purchasing decision right when they finish reading, perhaps before!
In order to achieve this you have to go beyond reviewing the product or stating your opinion on the product, you have to answer the question that your visitors were trying to answer when they landed on your product page in the first place.
Start by describing what the product is, what its benefits are and why people should buy it. For example, if you target the “best” keyword for your product, explain why it is the best, and so on.
Ideally, you should have tried the product that you are writing about, but we know that this is not only difficult, but quite expensive! So a good starting point is to simply go to the product page on amazon. Once there, check the title and the product description to get information about the product.
Also check the “sponsored products related to this item” and the “customers who bought this item also bought” horizontal lists so you can casually stack the product that you are writing about against similar products. It can be useful to insert affiliate products for other items and increase revenue.
Lastly, check the “customer reviews”. Check the most relevant reviews on each scale, from 5 stars to 1 star to see what customers think about it, so you can use this information on a “pros” and “cons” section for your product page.
Creating Your Amazon Associates Account
Ok, so you did your job and created a cool amazon affiliate website, and now the time has come to fill it with products to promote. You are more ready than ever because we just showed you how to do it the right way.
And to get your affiliate links you will need to become an amazon associate by creating an amazon associates account. You will only need your website information at hand and an amazon.com account to get started.
Start by going to the amazon homepage, scroll down to the “make money with us” title and click on “become an affiliate”. Now click on “join now for free”.
Sign up using your email address and click on “sign up using our secure server”. The first set up step is to enter “your account information”. Here you will be asked to enter the “payee information” in order to receive funds made from your amazon affiliate website.
By default, the info here will appear as your own personal info, including your full name, your address and your phone number, but you can change it by clicking on “select different address” if you want someone besides you receiving the funds made on your associates account.
In the “who is the main contact for this account?” you can select “the payee listed above” or a different contact selecting “someone else”.
Now click on “next” to go to the “your websites and mobile apps” section. Here you have to enter at least one website or mobile app where to display your amazon affiliate links, and you can add up to fifty. So simply enter your site’s domain name in the “enter your website” field and click on “add”, then click “next”.
Websites or apps that are directed primarily to children under the age of 13 are not eligible to display amazon affiliate links, so check the “no” box here and click on “confirm” to continue.
In the “profile” section you will create a profile for your affiliate websites. In the “associates store ID” enter a simple name that you can remember, as this will be your amazon associate ID. Now enter brief description of your affiliate website in the “what are your websites or mobile apps about?” field.
In the “which of the following topics best describes your websites or mobile apps?” display boxes, select a primary and a secondary category. In the “what type of amazon items do you intend to list on your websites or mobile apps” part, check all the possible product types that you plan to promote on your site.
In the “what type are your websites or mobile apps?” display boxes select “content or niche website” as your primary category and a secondary category of your own choice. Let’s now move to the “traffic and monetization” section. In the “how do you drive traffic to your websites?” section, check all the options that best describe your traffic sources.
In the “How do you utilize your websites and apps to generate income?” boxes select what other types of monetization strategies are integrated into your amazon affiliate websites, such as “display advertising”. Select “amazon associates is the only way I monetize my site” if you only use the amazon associates program to monetize your site.
Fill the information required in the “How do you usually build links?”, the “How many total unique visitors do your websites and apps get per month?”, the “What is your primary reason for joining the Amazon Associates Program?” and the “How did you hear about us?” sections to finish here.
Now enter the security code provided and click on “next” to move to the next section.
You’ll get a confirmation informing you that your identity verification has been completed. Check the box under “contract terms” to accept the operating agreement, then click on “finish”. Congratulations! You are now ready to start using associates central!
Linking your Amazon Affiliate Links
Ok, so you are all set up now: you picked up your niche, you selected a bunch of cool, high priced products to promote, you created your amazon affiliate website the easy way, and you already set up your amazon associates account.
Now it is time for you to learn how to funnel people from your content all the way through the amazon marketplace to get them to make you affiliate money there by using the amazon affiliate links.
You see, you will not make money as an amazon affiliate only by sending your visitors from your affiliate to amazon, because amazon needs to know when a customer was sent from your site to the marketplace in order for it to pay you your corresponding commissions.
And to do so, amazon uses affiliate product links, which are product page URLs specially designed to track people clicking on the affiliate links on your site, so let’s show you how to get your affiliate links and how to use them on your site.
Using the “amazon associates sitestripe” to get your affiliate links
There is a really easy way to get your affiliate links without you ever having to leave the amazon marketplace. Simply look for any product on the amazon marketplace by navigating through categories or by using the search bar, all while logged into your amazon.com account.
Click on the product to access the product page. Now look for the “amazon associates sitestripe” bar on top. You will be able to get your affiliate links from where it reads “get link”. You can get “text” link, “image” link, “text plus image” link and links to share on Facebook and twitter.
Click on “text” and you will get both a “short link” and a “full link” to insert on your site.
Click on “image” and you will be able to get an image link. Here you can select whether to get a link to a small sized image, a medium sized image or a large sized image. You can preview the image link as it would look on your site.
Click on “text plus image” and you will get an affiliate link that will feature the full offer on your site, just like it would appear in the amazon marketplace, which is awesome. You can choose to open the link on a new tab and also to feature your affiliate link with or without a border. You can preview how the affiliate link looks on your site.
Lastly, you can click on the Facebook icon and click on “post to Facebook” to share your affiliate link on Facebook, and you can click on the twitter icon and click on “tweet” to share your affiliate offer on twitter.
Getting your affiliate links from your associates account
You can also get affiliate links by login into your amazon associates account and going to the “product linking” tab. There click on “product links”. Use the search bar to enter a keyword or ASIN number to locate products and click on “go”.
A list of products will appear below. Locate the one that you intend to promote and click on “get link”. You can simply copy the URL from the box or click on “build link” to customize your affiliate link to your liking.
Inserting Your Affiliate Links On Your Site
Inserting affiliate links into your content is really easy. You can start by inserting your affiliate links into your posts by clicking on “add media” and then on “insert from URL” to test this feature, but the appropriate way to do it is by stylizing your affiliate links.
You can insert your affiliate links on text within your content by clicking “add media”, selecting “insert from url”, entering your affiliate link text in the “link text” field and then on “insert into post”.
Image links and text links with images are also very easy to insert and will convert like crazy. Simply copy the image link url and paste it into your content by going to the “add media” button, then to the “insert from url” section, pasting the affiliate link in the url field and clicking on “insert into post”. We recommend you insert it in between paragraphs where it could be relevant.
And that is it! This is how you insert affiliate links to link to affiliate products that will make you tons of affiliate money!
