How to promote an Amazon affiliate review site

18 replies
If you have an Amazon affiliate product review site and need traffic, the advice below might help you drive traffic to your site.

Step #1: Create a 2 layer content system: Layer 1 is made up of a consumer guide which talks about the general PROBLEMS / NEEDS your product category addresses.

Make this easy to read.

Present the information in PLAIN ENGLISH (8th grade reading level).

Make sure you lay out different selection factors prospective buyers must focus on.

Layer 2, of course, is made up of the individual Amazon product reviews as well as "Best of" cross product comparison reviews. These are the only pages you should link to Amazon. DO NOT LINK to Amazon from Layer 1.

List out the FEATURES they should look for and how these relate to their NEEDS.

Step #2: Drive targeted traffic

Method 1
Do a search for the product your reviews cover
Look for blog posts that use FB comments plugin
Comment and link to a consumer guide which then links to your specific reviews

Method 2
Go to quora.com and find questions related to your product
Comment and link to a consumer guide which then links to your specific reviews

If there are NO questions, pay a VA to post broad questions related to the needs the products you're reviewing address.

The key here is to post BROAD enough questions so you can foster a GENUINE roster of answers that give readers a diverse set of resources to choose from.

Answer the questions using a summary of your consumer guide's main points in a BULLET POINT format (remember, you want this to be easy to SCAN since people are using mobile devices and have no time to read novels) and post a link to your consumer guide which then links to your specific reviews.

Method #3 Reverse engineer accounts on Twitter promoting the same products as you

Regardless of how you do it, don't spam and leave. Focus on building a brand.

Your answers must be thorough and step the reader through key selection features that address their needs. It also helps to have LATENT SEMANTIC INDEXING keywords in your answers to increase the visibility of the question you're answering / blog post you're responding to.

    Good tips.


    I like method 2


    I have seen one article with over 32,000 views and there are links to Amazon products.


    Although I think this against their TOS - I think you need to have a link to a page and that page can have an affiliate link in it


    Best Regards

      That's what I wrote. Link to a page that links to reviews that links to Amazon products. Don't link directly to Amazon from Quora. Bad idea.

        Yes,


        I saw that you actually wrote it, I just pointed it out because I know other people have mentioned on the forum that they have had their articles deleted because of direct affiliate links and I wanted to highlight it.


        I am pleased that other members have also said they have had good traffic from Quora.


        It is free although there is a paid option for adverts.


        There are a lot of good articles on how people have a lot of success with Quora.


        A simple "how to get traffic from Quora" in Google will bring some really good articles from people who have been very successful on Quora.


        Best Regards

    • I use Method 2 a lot and that's how I mostly started making money online. In fact, Quora is a source of highly targeted traffic (you focus on topics your website covers) that can make you money as long as you can answer as many questions as possible.

      I wish you good luck and much success!

    Extra Method: Reddit. Participate in comments every day for your niche. You can search for posts in the last 24 hours made with your keywords. Go through them and comment where necessary.

      Hows the email marketing working out for you ? Is it good idea to add publicly ripped niche related emails to your list and then send them emails ?

        "Publicly ripped"? Not only would that lead to a low response email list but you might also be cruising for a legal bruising.

        The good news is that you don't have to do things that way. By posting content with lead capture elements you can get actual VOLUNTARY list members.

        Also, another trick I use is Facebook AD RETARGETING to squeeze pages for users who triggered my FB pixel as they view articles

    Good tips.

    Another way would be to create a business account on Pinterest, making sure to add relevant key words therein. Join group boards as well but make sure to check the terms as every group board founder has different rules.

    The plain English note is so important. Do so across the board; blog, business site, videos,Warrior, all over. Those who simplify persistently become wildly successful online.

    Facebook is giving me good result. But you have to work real hard and get your link posted with facebook recognizing it as scam/spam.

    Creating a niche blog is a good option if you are low on cash.

    Otherwise, I wrote a blog post a few days back, check out How To Make $100/ day via Amazon Affiliate Marketing.

    In simple words, you can create a design focused on social commerce and drive traffic to your site.

    Thanks for the nice tips. The method 1 and the method 2 are creative. I think the best way to drive traffic to the site is YouTube Channel.
