Amazon aStore

Can anyone enlighten me on any experience you've had with an Amazon aStore. I can see the pros and cons, pro, they can shop without leaving your site and that seems more credible and MAY lead to better conversions, con, you would be missing out on any additions to the cart on the entire amazon site should they decide to buy something other than what i'm pushing. Anyway, anyone with experience with an aStore, please, any feedback would be much appreciated. Also, if anyone knows if you can put an aStore on blogspot or if there are any platforms that won't accept an aStore. Thanks.

    I personally do not think the aStore is a good idea. It has no SEO value, people won't be able to buy extra things they might find at Amazon, and aStores can quite easily fall out of date. Having targeted contextual links is definitely the way to go if you're using Amazon Associates.

    Do you use images at all or just straight text link?

    I would use a mixture of images, text links, and even a few generalized links, like:

    "Can't find exactly what you're looking for? Browse the full line of xxxx at Amazon.com."

    I have all three versions of the Amazon affiliate program going: I have sites with links, aStores, and Webstores. So far, the best sales come from links.

    I tried aStores back when I first started and had zero results with them. There's no point having hundreds of product links that no-one can find.

    You'll have more success creating a Wordpress site and writing ten unique articles on the top ten bestselling products within a specific niche. People will find that, and you will make sales.

    I have both, I do much better with amazon if I push a specific product, but I really don't like amazon's cookie it only last for 24 hours unless they put it in their cart, then it is 90 days. People sometimes browse and think for a few days before they buy. Now amazon has everything so it is a must to have as far an affiliate marketer is concerned. Although a good sales letter and pre-selling can help your conversions.
