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

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).

Good advice & nice examples- thanks for that.

These Amazon affiliate shop sites seem to be much less work, certainly when you use a plug in like wpzonbuilder which seems to be quite popular. I still wonder how these sites will rank- guess you have to add a lot of unique content.

@ wolfmmiii : since you have quite a lot of experience with amazon aff sites- do you use any amazon plugins for your websites with good results .. ?


Any more Amazon good shop / review sites examples to share ?..

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.

I do use an Amazon plugin or two but, similar to Gaz, I've modified them to do exactly what I want them to do.

I've never been a fan of the whole autoposting thing. I want people to return to my site once they've found it through the SERPs. Just spitting out autoposted Amazon content doesn't accomplish that.

Great tips - appreciate it

A course which shows how to build & rank a site using one of these autoposter plugins in combination with unique content would be interesting.

Will have a look at the these WSOs & courses/trainings mentioned in this thread

So reviewsites will usually get higher conversions than shopsites?

Cheers

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:

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.

I'm not sure I agree with this. I've tried the opt-in stuff on some of my review sites and it just doesn't perform well. I get a very, very small fraction of that 90% to opt-in and, of course, an even smaller fraction of that fraction will ever open your emails, let alone buy something. So really, instead of chasing the other 90%, I'm chasing some fraction of a fraction of that 90%, while missing out on affiliate clicks (and commissions) I would have otherwise gotten.

I receive very few opt-ins and to be honest, I think it's because the person searching for widget reviews is late in the buying cycle. As such, by the time I send the user his first mailing, he already has the widget he was looking for. Maybe it's just my style of site that doesn't work well with opt-ins but I've seen nothing but terrible performance on multiple sites.

Now, as I said in another thread, I suppose this could work if you make the opt-ins your site's primary focus (offer reviews/info in exchange for an opt-in). However, once you do that, the site is really no longer an Amazon site but more of a squeeze page since you really are forsaking affiliate clicks for emails.

No, I know. Review sites are no good. Not for me, anyway.

I didn't suggest that anything like 90% will opt in.

I said only that promoting Amazon products without list-building is limiting yourself to chasing 10% of the income available to you if you build lists, rather than the other 90% as well.

Maybe. I admit I wouldn't use a review site, myself, for Amazon promotions.

Exactly so. The opt-in is always the primary focus of all the sites to which I draw potential customer traffic.

Sorry, but I don't agree with this at all. After all the split-testing I've done, I don't use squeeze pages any more. I find that I earn significantly more if I opt people in through a content-rich site, and that that works "for Amazon products" just like it does for other things. I do completely take your point about the "stage of the buying cycle" and feel sure you're right about that.

Just because this doesn't work for you does not mean it's ineffective. IMO, review sites are inherently the least effective in conversions, because they contain some rather cheesy sales "techniques", which are increasingly more of a turn-off for savvy buyers. It takes several exposures to make a sale; with "review sites" you get just one wimpy shot.

You can build lists using any number of marketing methods; opt-in forms on Amazon sites is only one method. What I do is incentivize buyers of Clickbank and Amazon sales to opt-in for additional product information, free tips, and relevant product updates. As customers consistently experience satisfactory results from the recommended products, they will buy incrementally higher end products.

Over the course of the niche autoresponder sequence, customers buy products which frequently exceeds 4-digit price points. By not building customer lists, you are leaving a whole lot of money on the table.

Hence the reason I stated it didn't work when "I" tried it.

Not if you are doing them right.

Agreed. However, the context of the thread is about Amazon sites.

I'm sure it works. However, I, personally, am not into email marketing right now. Although I will admit that it's something that's been bouncing around in my head to at least try out for a bit.

I can't control what people write so, no, I make no guarantees. The WSO, now that you mention it, is more of a framework that provides multiple product review templates and a data-entry backend that streamlines the review creation process. It's actually pretty slick.

There's a demo site on the WSO page so feel free to try it out if you are so inclined.

This is very interesting, mainly because I have a couple of review sites and have just started list building without much success...yet. Maybe it is because whoever visits your site is just interested in reading a review and moving on, or just buying the product via the affiliate link and leaving your site. I imagine this is definitely the case with SEO traffic. What do you think?

This is interesting Alexa. So I assume you compile sites which have informative articles that people like to read, who you can then build trust with, and then they opt-in. For your list, do you then send them some more useful articles but also add some product reviews, or simply links to a product review? Where do you send your subscribers if they are interested in buying a product? As far as I understand, you can't copy in Amazon affiliate links into your e-mails, so do you create a specific landing page for each product you are promoting on your site? Sorry for all the questions

I haven't thought of this approach before. So your method is rather than giving visitors verything they need, leave them wanting more, so they have to opt-in

That's not even close to my method. What I always strive for is to exceed expectations of my visitors/customers. That is why they choose to opt-in.

Well ... this is perhaps overstating it a little, because the way my sites are set out doesn't exactly invite people to read my articles (though they can, if they really want to - I don't mean to suggest that I'm "concealing" them, either). They're on my sites for two main reasons: first for the long-term SEO advantages accruing from accumulating all the initial indexations, before they're syndicated anywhere else; secondly, to present people with an obviously "content-rich site" (not quite the same thing as "giving them articles to read"!), because whenever I've split-tested - which I've done in only 4 of my niches, admittedly - I've made more money by opting people in through a content-rich site than I have by opting them in with a squeeze page. But, that said, I strongly suspect that very few of my visitors actually read many articles there at all. Which is, in a way, just as well, because I re-use some of the information in the articles in my autoresponder series, too.

Yes, a bit of both. (The "article stuff" is re-written slightly, to make it more suitable for an autoresponder message).

Yes, for Amazon you need to send them to your site, for this reason. For ClickBank, you can send them a hoplink in an email (I always use a .info domain-name to mask the hoplink, when I do that, because it significantly increases the proportion who'll click on it, but of course I'm open about it being an affiliate-link. Just realized the thread's about Amazon only, so that comment was irrelevant ).

I think "clicking your links, expecting to find something nice" is a good habit to get people into, right from the start, in as many emails as you can, so I often include links (sometimes just to things on my own site) in non-promotional emails, too.

Aside from reading and understanding the TOS, start with a niche or product that you know and understand. It's much easier to succeed when you are working with a subject that you are knowledgeable in.

wolfmmiii,

I am very interested in getting a review site up in the next several weeks. I have followed a lot of your posts and really love the info you have shared. I saw one thread that was locked where you were creating a tutorial. Can you pm me and tell me how or where I can follow more of your advice?

Thanks, a greenhorn marketer!!!

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

If you are building a list with targeted blog visitors, you should be able to easily earn a 4-5 figure monthly income even with a list that small.. Send them your product reviews or recommendations for relevant products. For any popular niche, there are hundreds or even thousands of Amazon products to promote. Competition is insignificant when you have an audience built on credibility and trust.

I guess this site may be illegal since it probably breaks amazon operational agreement since it probably hosts product pictures from amazon.

They are not doing anything illegal or against Amazon's TOS. But notice it's not just a "review" site; they are using social media and aggressively building a subscriber list.

I won't give away the url but my best converting Amazon site is a single product review site built using the default Twenty Ten wordpress theme. No header or fancy graphics, it's probably one of my plainest looking sites - just white with black text.

The content is very good though (I have an excellent 1200 word presell) and as it's a reasonably expensive product (over $100) people do actually read the content on the site to help them with their decision.

I think the image on page is agains amazon tos: Samsung 3D Blu-ray Disc Player 2012 - TopTenREVIEWS

I guess it isn't downloaded from associate link bulder, but directly downloaded from product page. It seems it isn't allowed by amazon operating agreement.

This allegation is false, useless and totally irrelevant regarding the topic. I recommend reading Amazon's TOS and operating agreement before tossing in such unfounded conjecture. :rolleyes:

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..

They're on my sites for two main reasons: first for the long-term SEO advantages accruing from accumulating all the initial indexations, before they're syndicated anywhere else; secondly, to present people with an obviously "content-rich site" (not quite the same thing as "giving them articles to read"!), because whenever I've split-tested - which I've done in only 4 of my niches, admittedly - I've made more money by opting people in through a content-rich site than I have by opting them in with a squeeze page. But, that said, I strongly suspect that very few of my visitors actually read many articles there at all. Which is, in a way, just as well, because I re-use some of the information in the articles in my autoresponder series, too.
I would agree with this. People opt in far more through content rich informational sites, rather than obscure squeeze pages.

Having said that, we are talking about how an Amazon affiliate marketing site should be set for maximum conversions. Not whether you leave money on the table or not.

It's like someone advices you to add an opt-in in your sales letter. It's absurd! It dilutes the prospect's focus from the "buy now" button to the free download opt-in.

Let's just shove the opt-in in the sidewalk and talk mainly about how to increase the conversions in your Amazon affiliate marketing web page.

Plato....

From my own experience, review sites tend to do the best. You really want to engage the reader with the a very content rich experience. It's not just posting nonstop product reviews but also has to do with generating related content to your products throughout your site such as videos.

If you keep your focus on making your review site engaging with in depth content covering reviews, news, articles, etc., you will end up with a site that will do well long-term. You don't have to worry about using social media or bombarding your site with backlinks.

I received an email recently from an active amazon affiliate, and he wrote me saying how his success came from just sticking with focusing on his site and working on the basics. Despite the "flavor of the month" backlinking or ranking shortcuts that you may come across, it still comes down to the basics.....Give your readers good content and your site get traffic organically and do well....Just don't expect it overnight!

That top 10 review site is a PR7 meaning that any new (product) pages they add to that authority site should get indexed and rank pretty fast. Nice.

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.

Default Re: Amazon- examples of highly converting affiliate sites ?

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;

For me it looks pretty similar to you. I have startet as amazon affiliate a few years ago. Build some websites, where the two i put most work into, got sales and paid the hosting. Now i didnt work on them for months, maybe a year, but im stilll making some money. I need to get back on it too.

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
