Default Amazon Associates – Can You Really Make Money With Amazon Associates?

Can you really make money with Amazon Associates? Amazon Associates is an affiliate program for Amazon.com, the number one online retailer. The company was launched in 1996 as one of the first online affiliate programs. Amazon has over a million products in which members of Amazon Associates can earn commission. When you join Amazon Associates you get access to banners and links that you can promote on your website or blog. When someone clicks your link and buys a product from Amazon, then you get the commission. Members can also create an astore where you can make a professional looking online store which can be linked from a personal website or blog.


Depending on the product a person buys, members can expect to earn up to 15% referral commission. Members can track all their efforts through the daily tracker reports that are included in Amazon Associates. Members can also track traffic, sales, and conversion rates. In order to be successful in Amazon Associates you need to get targeted traffic to your website. For example, if you have a personal website about weight loss and you have an amazon affiliate ad advertising footballs, your conversion rate most likely will be zero. However, if you promote products like dietary supplements and drinks, then your conversion rate will be high. It is very important to research what products are popular before promoting. Many people who join Amazon Associates just slap ads onto their site without even thinking. Then they wonder why they’re not getting the results they want.

Here are a few tips to maximize your profits with Amazon Associates. First, you want to choose a product to promote within the $150 to $200 range. Remember, you only receive up to 15% commission so selling a $10 item wouldn’t be profitable. Also, make sure the product you are promoting has positive reviews. This will increase your conversion rate. Many people who are making money with Amazon Associates have their own Amazon affiliate website which you can make using WordPress. You will need to register a domain name with Weebly.com, Godaddy.com or some other website provider. In addition, you will need to buy hosting for your website which can be done through HostGator.com. Once all the technical aspects are finished, the next step is to create the website. The website which have the highest conversion rates are review websites. For example, if you want to sell Sony camcorders, you right a positive review on the product and then give people the ability to purchase the camcorder on your website. After they buy, then you will earn the 15% commission through Amazon Associates.

So now let’s talk about creating the website and driving traffic through SEO, social media, and paid advertising. Like I said earlier, you will need to get a domain name from Godaddy.com or some other website provider. Make sure you pick a domain name that is related to what you’re trying to sell. If you’re trying to sell furniture, then put the word furniture in your domain. Once you have a domain picked out, you will need to buy hosting. Hosting is not expensive and you can buy hosting from HostGator.com which will allow you to host multiple domains. After you have these two components, you’re ready to build your site with WordPress. The reason why WordPress works so well is because you can install multiple plugins and it allows for complete customization. The last thing you need to do is put the Amazon products on your website. You can do this through the Amazon Associates program.


Now you have a professional website ready to make you money. However, you are still missing one last major piece to the puzzle – traffic. Without traffic you won’t profit at all from Amazon Associates. So how do we get traffic? The first method I highly recommend is through search engine optimization (SEO). Search engine traffic is the best traffic around since it will be the most targeted. If your website is about furniture and people are searching around for furniture on Google, they may find your site. Would you rather have someone interested in buying furniture or someone who is just surfing the web? Obviously the person who is looking to buy furniture. When you’re writing the content in your website, make sure you follow these SEO tips. If your keyword is furniture then you want to underline, bold and italicize that keyword in the text. You also want to make sure you have an inbound link and outbound link within your content. More importantly, make sure your content is original and high quality. Google will not rank your site if you copied content from another site, and you would fail at selling with Amazon Associates. If you don’t like to write, you can pay for SEO articles from independent writers on the web. Just make sure they have good reviews and are reliable writers. Besides SEO, social media and paid advertising is the best way to go. With social media, you can use Twitter and Facebook to let people know about your site. Just remember that this traffic will not be targeted since most of your friends and followers are not interested in buying furniture at the moment. With paid advertising such as banner ads and pay per click, you can target certain people and demographics. This type of traffic will be more targeted, but will not be as targeted as organic search engine traffic.
