So everyone has heard of Google Chrome right? and if you have heard of it and not yet using it, you are missing out big time.
Well on the 25th of Jan Google announced that extensions were now available to their latest stable release in windows. I'm not going to go into to much detail about what Google Chrome Extensions are, you can read all about theme here: What are extensions? : Extensions - Google Chrome Help
So whats this new platform opportunity for affiliate marketers then? Well, its using extensions to build extension apps that promote your affiliate links.
Why is this such a big opportunity? well Google Chrome, in my opinion is set to gain huge market share over other browser like IE and Firefox. Sure this is not going to happen overnight, but if you get in now with some cool browser extensions for chrome, you could end up with hundreds of thousands of people with your affiliate links right there in their browser.
Extensions are real easy to build, there are plenty of tutorials out there explaining how to build them.
Here is a basic idea..
1. Build an Amazon Extension which lists Hot new Deals, maybe filter your results by only showing the latests deals that have more than 30% off. Make sure the links to buy in Amazon contain your affiliate codes.
2. Publish this into the Google Extension Directory and some of the many new extension directory websites that are popping up allover the place and let them promote your extension for you.
3. Sit back and watch your commissions grow along side Google Chrome growing into the most popular web browser. The more people that start using Chrome, the more people will be looking for Google Chrome extensions
Right, I'm off to build my first Google Chrome Extension
