For those of you who don't know, I have been doing Amazon marketing since 2013.
At first glance, you might be asking why Amazon since their commissions are only 4% as compared to others like Clickbank who are paying 50-75& commissions?
My reason is very simple.
From my perspective and from Amazon's perspective.
1. First of all, Amazon has been a globally trusted brand that has been promoting physical consumer products that people like you and me buy everything from malls but due to high business costs resulting from uncertain economy, people prefer to buy things online which are cheaper.
Unless you are a baby boomer who is not used to surfing online or even use a PC of course.
2. Secondly since Amazon is dealing with physical products, they have warehouse and delivery staff to ensure every product it promises is in tip-top condition.
In the warehouse, on the way to delivery and even when it is delivered to customers.
And I can tell you heads and shoulders, Amazon has excelled in all.
In fact based on my research, Amazon even want to come up with its own digital / info products like Clickbank which can pay you the same percentage of commissions.
So on top of promoting physical products, you get to promote digital / information products as well in e-books - which Amazon preferred to call Kindle books and e-learning courses.
And make good money.
And speaking of making money, there are basically 4 ways.
1. Affiliate Marketing
You can start out by promoting any of Amazon products as an affiliate or associate as Amazon again prefers to term as.
2. Product Selling
You can also list your own products on Amazon be it physical, digital or even apps so that when people buy, you earn.
Moreover, you are leveraging on Amazon's payment processing and shipping / delivery system so that you never have to worry about customers' payments and whether they received their orders on time.
3. Kindle Publishing
You can also write e-books and come up with your own audio and video versions - like Clickbank and still make good money.
4. Mobile Apps Publishing
Last but not least, you can design your own mobile apps and start selling on Amazon.
From my research, mobile game apps tend to sell the best.
So with that said, here are the 4 ways you can make money from Amazon.
I for one has been focusing on Amazon affiliate marketing and in my next few posts, I will show you how I go about doing it.
