Amazon- examples of highly converting affiliate sites ?

by 49 comments
Hi there,

as i would like to tap further into Amazon affiliate marketing i was wondering how does a highly converting Amazon affiliate website look like ?

Would be great if you could share any examples.


Also, what kind of Amazon affiliate website will usual convert better-

* a review site, or
* a shop site, or
* any other kind of website ?

Thanks

    Review sites convert best in my opinion. I do very well with Amazon with just a handful of review sites. My best sites show reviews that are no longer than a few (250-500) words each. I don't post my own sites anymore because too many people just try and copy them (I see this in my stat logs).

    Hi Plato,

    whilst there are many working with Amazon, I highly doubt if anyone is going to reveal their highly converting websites in the open forum. I think you may have to make an educated guess as to the sites that are high converting sites.

    If I could make a recommendation to progress your Amazon career, then please check out some of the following Amazon WSO's

    Jan Roos - Physical Affiliate
    Erica Stone's - Amazon Niche Master, Extreme Review
    Gaz Coopers - AMZ training academy
    Jamie Garside's - Amazon mind control

    Whilst this list is not all of the great Amazon WSO's, it certainly is the cream of them IMO.

    I have been involved with Amazon for some time now and i'm earning nicely. I still buy most Amazon WSO's as they can still teach me new tricks to add into my business. The WSO's I recommend are all WSO's that I have bought and found to be very helpful.

    Then again it is up to you how you wish to move your business forward, best advice is to go and get each of the above WSOs and learn from them...

    Any site that ranks well, converts well. Customers usually know what they're looking for. You just need to take them there and it just have to be you or me.

    Speaking of conversion, I do have a site that ranks well but doesn't convert. It took too many clicks to get to amazon that was why.

    Yes as mentioned no more exposing the money sites simply because I can guarantee you there will be 50 clones of it within the same amount of minutes LOL.

    A good site will have lots of relevant information giving the visitors what they are looking for which is relevant detailed information on the product or subject matter.

    Do that and you will do well

    I will answer the question you posed to Wolfii also and yes I use an auto poster but I developed my own and it emails me when it posts to reminds me to head over and make the post unique and YES it ranks very well.

    Kickin it on Amazon

    This isn't a live site but it is a demo site I'm using for a current WSO. It is very very similar to the kinds of sites I build:

    My Tool Review Blog › Log In
    username: demouser
    password: password

    The demo video below is best watched in full screen.


    Although there are 6 review templates to choose from, my best converting review template is the Two Images template. Create a dummy review and you'll have an idea of what my own reviews look like and how they function.

    I know it's only June, but so far this is perhaps the most surprising (and least accurate) assertion I've seen in this forum in 2012.

    One thing I can tell you: it has an opt-in, so that its owner can build a list. Don't imagine that "the commissions on Amazon sales are too small to make it worthwhile building lists". It's about whether you want to chase just 10% of your available income or the other 90% as well.

    Hi Wolf.

    I am interested in purchasing some Amazon tutorials. I really need to learn this stuff.

    I have a popular niche blog and make some revenues for it but with 1-1500 visits a day (all organic) and almost 4000 people on my list I know I can do better.

    Is your offering good for this? I ask because I don't want to learn how to run off lots of review sites just how to optimise my existing site.

    Thank you,

    Shane

    all the amazon products have there own style of conversion..

    Some amazon products converts through review site and some amazon product converts through lead capture page and some converts through authority site..

    But you need to start with review site because if you are completely new than you need to learn first how the visitors are coming and from they are coming and are they clicking on your affiliate link or not than you will understand which things converts good and which things does not converts..

    I hope this helps..

    No one will!

    Two ways to see examples of successful affiliate sites are:-

    1. Type in a product category and the word "review" in Google and do a search. You will find Amazon affiliate sites in the first 3-5 pages of Google. You can do a search using exact product names of bestsellers. If you use Chrome like I do, highlight a best seller and right-click on your mouse. You will see - "Search Google for (the highlighted product name)"

    Example - Google Search results for Mini Diagonal Cutting Pliers Memory Wire Hand Tool 4.5"

    2. Go to Flippa.com and use their advanced search feature to locate sites that have been "won". If you do not fill in any figures for "auction price" it will take the default minimum price of $2000.

    You can do this to locate examples of promotional sites of any affiliate program including Clickbank, Commission Junction etc.

    i love amazon its one of my top income earners. after years i have found (for me) that it doesnt take a load of work the number one thing is finding a tight niche inside amazon and capitalizing on the product searches for free search traffic.

    a simple wordpress install with a few select plugins and your indexed ranking and making commissions within a month, most of my sites generate 200-500 a month and with 50+ sites running on autopilot thats an income.

    so what do i do?
    - find a niche from within amazon with 100+ products
    - find a dot com with a keyword search volume of 1000-4000
    - install wordpress and optimized plugins
    - optimized seo for uniqueness, search and ping list < key
    - populate ecommerce store with amazon plugin
    - basic offsite seo using virtical directories and blogs

    traffic to my ecommerce amazon site from search
    and i usually push them over the edge with a coupon
    to save on shipping (they love that) NO OPTIN or LIST BUILDING...

    this doesnt mean i regect a list but they just havent
    been required on ecommerce i can see it relevant on
    a review site but its not what i personally do.

    cheers;

    I write my own reviews seldom more than 300 words for amazon and other affiliate sites and it seems to work ok. I get regular sales from a site reviwing kitchen appliances that has has no new links or content for 8 months but still sells - hell I need to get my arse in gear and get more on it!!!

    When you are building a landing page for Amazon affiliate traffic, you must remember one thing.

    You get comission on ANYTHING they buy in the next 24 hours. They don't have to buy the stuff you promote. And since many in the USA buy on Amazon daily (even toilet paper) your sole job is to get them on Amazon via your affiliate link.

    What works for me extremly well, is to make a "see more photos" take people to Amazon.
    Also list "similar" products below and make them all link to Amazon.

    This should get you some nice increase in sales
