Hey,

Check out this video if you are interested in, or use the Amazon associates program. I talk about and show you some of the results of a great campaign my wife ran on one of her Niche websites.

Also towards the end of the video I mention a great way to find hot new Niche Markets to target. Only works if you are already selling on Amazon though.


Enjoy

    Hello Nick

    Thank you for the video. You have a very good tip there we all can use as it shows what other things people are buying which could potentially be another decent niche.
    $8000 per month, is big money and best of all its passive.
    Looking forward to the next video!

      True Michael, I have discovered so many new product Niche markets this way not to mention many different Hobby niche markets by looking through the topics of Books that people purchase.

      Thank you William, yes it is hard work, at times, but as I have said before, we love what we do so much that it never feels like work.
      I'd love to hear more about that JustLuxe website in your footer. I am a huge VW fan boy In fact only yesterday, we just purchased a Touareg and a also got my first glimpse of the new Scirocco I have a Golf GTI now, but after seeing the Scirocco, I am ready for something new! (Sorry very off topic.)

      Cheers

        I'll add a little to the off topic discussion.

        I myself have a VW Jetta 1.8T (first car) but I've been a VW fan for some time. I prefer euro cars in general.

        I'll tell you, that New Scirocco is one thing that keeps me going in terms of IM. First of all, I hope they bring it to the US and secondly I could definitely see myself buying one.

        And nichemarketingninja, great video.

          Ah another VW fan, great to hear. Yeah, the Scirocco is a real thing of beauty, I have not driven it yet, but sat in it at the showroom, and it fit like a glove. So here is my plan, 15 more Niche websites over the next 2 months and then place my Order for the Scirocco in month 3.

        Thanks for the video - $8000 a month sure is impressive! Great tip at the end too. I've had mixed luck with Amazon in the past but the fact that they pay you commission on other products the customer buys can really stack up - especially over the Christmas period. It's a program I will be sticking with and tips like these are good motivation to try something a little different!

          Thanks for the compliments, there are in fact many Amazon associates that ear way more than we do, we are just scratching the service of the full potential. As you say, It is a great place to be an affiliate especially over the holiday season.

      Thanks Jay, you have not even begun to see what else I plan to share so watch this space mate.

      I think in certain circumstances it is important to keep some of your personal sites and techniques to yourself, I have been like that for a long time, but now realize that Niche marketing and SEO is such a vast and dynamic playing field and I will never know it all and will continue to learn new things. What drives me to share all the details that I do know work for me, is that I am just so sick and tired of seeing so many people fail at internet marketing because they get suckered into trying to interpret the vague and rehashed garbage that so many Gurus keep pushing into the market. It is time for change and If I can help just a handful of people realize that they can control their own future themselves, then I will have achieved more than I could ever dream, that gives me more pleasure than cashing my commission checks at the end of each month.

        Oh my God what a extraordinary breathe of fresh air. I 'm too sick of all the Guru crap pertaining to the IM Niche that we see so much of. And honestly I see a lot of it going on here at Warrior Forum.There is way more good stuff going on here but I do see sprinles of this Guru crap going on!!

        Keep it up Ninja and I think we will see many of the so called Gurus around here star wetting their pants

      Hi Nick, that's a helpful video for me because you address the topic of the affiliate cookie expiration - I was wondering what your thoughts were about that just yesterday, and today there's your video on the topic... what, do you have a camera in my house? ;-) Also, you and your wife's success online is quite inspiring to me.

      Additionally, your videos on keyword research took my knowledge in that area up a notch or two, and caused a light bulb to go off above my head about affiliate marketing.

      Thanks!

        No problem Dave, glad the videos answered a few questions for you. It is a pretty big topic on its own, the whole Amazon cookie issue, I may elaborate further on it sometime as I have more thoughts on that.

      Hi Mark,

      This will not effect me at all. You see my Niche websites are so targeted, I guess you could call them Micro Niche markets. Each website is focused on a particular product or a small range of similar products.

      While I believe in automation, like the use of Data feeds, I prefer to only use direct product links to send customers to Amazon. This way, I get a higher commission.

      I am also very hesitant to populate any of my search engine facing pages with links to Amazon. My links to amazon are via Redirect pages which I link to internally using the no follow attribute.

        He's not using Data Feeds... If you don't use data feeds I'm pretty sure this Amazon change will NOT affect you.

    Thanks for another great video Nick!

    I actually hadn't used Amazon much before watching your first couple of videos. BUT, then I looked into my account (which I never really paid much attention to) and noticed the very thing you were talking about - people get there through my link, but then they buy OTHER things.

    I'd never really paid much attention to it because my income from them was so small and I kind of had a negative attitude about them because the commissions are low and the cookie is not that long. Plus, the last time I put used Amazon on a site they didn't really have all the cool tools for adding links that they do now.

    Anyway, since watching the other videos you posted last week, I was inspired to make a site using the techniques you outlined and I monetized it with Amazon. Imagine my surprise when just 7 days later, I received several sales from the tracking ID I used on that site and none of them were for the actual product I was trying to sell!

    Keep up the good work and more videos!

      This is great Lee, absolutely brilliant. Another site of mine which focuses on Blu-Ray DVD's normally only generates relatively small commissions from the sale of Blu-Ray DVD's, I'd say about $15 a day in commission. About 2 months ago, I discover someone who purchased a Blu-ray DVD from a link on my site ended up purchasing a 42" LCD TV and a Blu-Ray DVD Player netting me a profit of $240 from that one sale, and I don't even promote TV's. It's poetry!

      BTW I added a link to your Website Promotional Blueprint website on the Niche Market Ninja Blog. You have done a great Job with providing great information. Hats off to you!

      Hi Bruce,
      Yeah, the 4% sux, but when you are on 6% it makes thing better, in particular for when you are promoting higher ticket items like electronics. But toys are really great too, a little seasonal but when Christmas is near and you are on the receving end of a buying frenzy, lifes good!

        Thanks for sharing. I've joined amazon affiliate-program since 11/08, put a data feed on one of my 300 hits/days web directory site. Almost six months, zero income.

        Could you share with us how and what you did, sort like a road map, beside all the video on your site. thx

          Sam, You need to target buyers... Having ads on a web directory are not going to perform because the visitors aren't in a buying state.

          There are keywords you can identify in your research that are buyers keywords. Meaning, people who search those keywords are most likely looking to buy.

          Here's an example:

          Broad keyword example: Flat Screen TV's
          Buyers keyword example: kdl 40s3000

          See the difference? The second one is very specific, right down to the model so they are most likely looking to buy.

          Hi Sam,

          I completely agree with what Mike has said, I believe to be a successful Amazon affiliate you really need to work in a targeted niche and make sure you go after the "buying" keyphrases. Not knowing enough about your said website and why or how your vistors come to your site, it is a little hard to give to much more advice than that.

          Please feel free to PM or email me to discuss in more detail and perhaps I can help further.

          Cheers

      That is just the tip of the ice berg in terms of earning potential. If you are into promoting products other than information products, there are alternatives to Amazon where you can earn much higher commissions. I just mostly use Amazon as it is a well established and trusted brand who always offer incredible discounts which I use to try and push customers there.

    Nicheninja,

    thanks for your series of videos and info on your blog. I do some similar sites, but not quite as many!

    A note on Amazon "datafeed". I use Amazon AWS to populate products for sites. I also use a nofollow to an internal redirect script, which tracks the click through and 302 redirects to the amazon link. All stored in mysql.

    I use Amazon US and I'm pretty sure that they have scrapped the higher percentage commission for direct product links system. Under the "performance plan" the % just goes up with volume (except for electronics and a few other bits and pieces). Maybe it's different at Amazon UK.

    One thing I don't like about Amazon is the lack of proper subids. Amazon have a very limited tracking capability, which makes my nice stats not work to their best effect. I like to give every click a new subid.

      Thanks for that info on AWS Crispin, it is an area that I certainly need to spend more time looking into. I have accounts with Amazon US, UK and Germany for my multi-language sites and I think the rules are the same across all Amazon stores.

      Mark commented above on Amazon not providing data feeds anymore, perhaps you could comment more on this and how it will effect the way you promote amazon products on your sites. I'd be really interested to hear your view point before I commit too much time looking into how I could use it.

    Thanks Nick - that was awfully nice of you. I added a link to you on my site too. I made the site because I noticed that a lot of people have questions about promotion so I figured I would just lay out what works for me - it's still a work in progress and I just add to it whenever I get a whim to.

    I am using a watered down version of my blueprint for the micro-niche sites and it's working out quite nicely!

    Good share Nick,

    That's what I love about the Amazon program - I have a niche where the main product I promote is only a few dollars, but the average sale price is over $100 because of the related purchases people make.

  • Thanks for sharing this Nick. Yes, there is really good money to be made from the Amazon affiliate program.

    Most people are put off by the 1 day cookie, but if you target your traffic you can get those people to impulse buy. To your point, they most often are buying other things so you can really take advantage of that targeted traffic.

      Hi Abel,
      This was a great one, and probably not achievable with every product you promote, but basically she took pictures of our family at a Manic Heathrow airport with my 4 year old son racing around on his Trunki and myself in the background chilling reading a magazine (Looking very stress free). She then proceeded, as you mentioned, to write a very personal and fantastically positive review. A huge bonus was that she submitted the website link to a local Mother and Child magazine (Print). and they published it as part of their recommended websites.

    For redirecting your affiliate links using the nofollow attribute can a person use something like OpenX to administer the ads?

      Mike Hill
      Hi Mike,

      I can't really comment on OpenX with too much authority as, while I have just had a browse around there website, I don't know enough to be able to give you an educated opinion on the matter.

      What I can say is that I have a strict rule that none of my Visitor/Spider facing web pages ever contain outbound links to any advertising network/platform or affiliate website. This is why I never use Amazons fancy flash product widgets etc or why I never have adsense on sites that I promote Amazon products. That said, I have many sites that do use these advertising network services, but those sites don't promote products and are geared to earn income directly from those networks.

      Hope that makes sense? I will however investigate further into OpenX.

      Cheers

Traffic then went a little crazy for a few weeks after the Magazine publication (Mentioned above) which after dying off we then have continued to see a steady increase in organic search engine traffic which continues to grow as it is still an area of the site we work on daily with SEO tasks. We are also working on expanding on this based on the success we had by breaking the "children's luggage" niche content out of the "Parenting" niche website and creating it's own small network of related websites.

        2- How do you know what products to pick? Any program you used?

          Here's how to do it. First of all you need to identify what your going to promote. The best way to do it is identify buying keywords in a niche.

          Lets say the niche is gardening, but gardening is too wide a niche. This could include lawnmower, grass, flowers, pests, lights.. you get what I mean? It's too wide. That keyword gardening alone give 52 million results.
          Too big, lets narrow it down. Lets choose

          "garden lights"
          We stick that word into google keyword tool
          Using all countries and territories option, exact phases with consistent search trends with at least 500 monthly searches and above we have this:

          [decorative garden lighting]
          [garden light]
          [garden lighting uk]
          [garden lighting]
          [garden lights]
          [garden rock lights]
          [garden spot lights]
          [garden wall lights]
          [led garden light]
          [led garden lighting]
          [led garden lights]
          [low voltage garden lighting]
          [low voltage garden lights]
          [outdoor garden lighting]
          [outdoor garden lights]
          [solar garden light]
          [solar garden lighting]
          [solar garden lights]
          [solar lights for garden]
          [solar power garden lights]
          [solar powered garden light]
          [solar powered garden lights]

          Using domain name analyzer free tool, out of all those, only

          garden rock lights
          garden spot lights
          garden wall lights

          have availiable domain names:

          gardenspotlights.com
          march 1600 monthly searches / 880 monthy consistent

          gardenwalllights.com
          march 1000 monthly searches / 880 monthy consistent

          gardenrocklights.com
          march 480 monthly searches / 480 monthy consistent

          Stick that into micro niche finder and we get this:



          MicroNicheFinder says yes for it, especially the term "garden rock lights"

          Look on amazon for garden rock lights
          Look on amazon for garden spot lights
          Look on amazon for garden wall lights

          and you'll see plenty of products. Use the affiliate links to promote the products.

          Create your site, use wordpress with allinone seo plugin for maximum seo
          get back links etc

          So there you have it. Niche Within a niche that has an 3 ultra targeted keywords, that all have availiable domain names, that has a decent amount of month consisten search results. Choosing a niche just requires abit of creativity. Just look around your house that are physical products and throw it into google to find out the market. Keep your niche radar on all the time.

          I'm giving you 3 paying keywords all for free! Lets see who registers those domain names first. I would tackle them but I got my dissertation to finish so you guys can have it if you want. This forum has been too good so I gotta give back.

          Take action!

          Nick it would be great if you commented on this to see if it's the right steps. I apologise if it seems like I've hijacked this thread with this long post. Just wanted to give back what you've taught me!

          Thank you again

      I opened a new account. couldn't log in. I filled out the trouble ticket, e-mailed them, nagged the heck out of them...no response.

      A few days later they sent me an e-mail, "We noticed you haven't gotten any referrals yet; can we help?"

      I replied with what I wrote above...no reply.

        search results are important but the important ones are the ones in quotes though. The thing is even though MNF is a great tool, I'ts not really a good idea to dive straight in without looking at other factors.

        I done some keyword research for the words

        car dvd pioneer (free availiable domain name) 590 searches per month consistent

        Type that into google and you'll get Pioneer USA - Home in 1 and 2 pagerank 5 with 38k backlinks.

        You can have that if you want, Im not even going to try.

        You can have a million results without quotes that are a load of gibberish even with the keyword but it doesnt mean they are competing. The ones in quotes are your real competitors and they sometime don't even appear on first page which is why if you do it better than them then you might appear on first page.

        Correct me if I'm wrong someone.

        Example. I have a domain name I secured at www.PHPExpertSystem.com which i purchased about 1 month ago. If you google "php expert system" without the quotes, there are 5 million results. You can see my www.phpexpertsystem.com on 4 results and thats without any seo apart from name of the website.

          When searching for your potential keyword in quotes in Google, is there a certain number of results we should be looking for? Is a keyword search in Google (with quotes) that has less than 10K results easy to go after? Or should we just focus on the first page of the SERPs for the competition?

            Also when checking for available domain names is OK to get a domain name for a keyword and add another word on the end of it? For example if your keyword is "small blue widgets" and both the .com and .net are taken, can you just register "smallbluewidgetsinfo.com" or "smallbluewidgetsresource.net?" Or should we just stick to the exact keyword in the domain? By adding another word wouldn't you be able to target so many more keywords that way instead of bypassing ones that are already taken?

            Hi there

            This is what I've learnt from the Ninja man himself and the use of Niche Micro Finder:

            Niche Micro Finder suggests going for keywords in quotes under 10K results.

            Ninja man suggests that the first page results should not have strong competition even with under 10K in results. Competition like Web2.0 sites / wikepedia or the actual brand name itself eg Pioneer.

            eg "car dvd pioneer" in google.com gives back 7,710 which is under 10k. NMF gives green light and says go for it.

            Without the quotes, your search results contain:
            www.pioneerelectronics.com
            www.pioneer.co.uk and more

            5 Links down, and these are big names with PR 5 with 38k backlinks.

            Now just because you got a nice keyword that has low competing sites, high search volume, it doesnt mean you will be able to move high up on first page. What you can do is try to elmininate the obstacles as much as you can and then "challenge" for a position. Nothing is guaranteed.

            Micro Niche Finder is not perfect but it works well, you just need to use abit of common sense.

            This is my tip here:

            Get Micro Niche Finder.
            10k results or lower
            First page competition must be weak eg Zero PR, low back links.

            The way I assess first page competition extremely quickly is by using Firefox plugin Seoquake. Saves so much time as it displays PR, Backlinks etc.

            I hope this helps.

              Just to add. All over the Warrior Forum you will get people saying
              find keywords with less than 10k in quotes. Although good advice, it's not strictly true though.

              Perhaps it's good advice for a newbie to follow so that they don't get overloaded with information making it easier for them to take action, I dunno?

              Lets look at it this way. A keyword could have "100k competing websites in quotes" but it doesn't really mean they are competiting, they just happen to have the keyword in that position. (Lets just imagine that not all sites are actively doing SEO, and this is probably the case)

              100k Competing pages in quotes
              Using SEO quake, the first page competition has low PR, low backlinks

              There's no reason why you can't target that keyword and be better?

              Does anyone agree? Correct me if I'm wrong.

              Michael,

              Thanks for your input. What's your take on domain name selection? Does it have to be that exact keyword with either a .com or .net? Or can we add another term to the end of it? Also what is your take on using blogger blogs instead of an actual domain name, i.e. http://smallbluewidgets.blogspot.com." Or is it better to do something like "www.smallbluewidgetsinfo.com" if the "smallbluewidgets.com and smallbluewidgets.net" is not available?

              I just did in a search in Google for ""car dvd pioneer" (in quotes) and it came back with only 564 results. Without quotes there are 17.6 million results and pioneerelectronics has the the top 2 spots. With quotes the top spots is not pioneerelectronics. How did you get 7710 with quotes for that keyword?

                Try this for "car dvd pioneer"
                "car dvd pioneer" - Google Search

                I'm using google.com

                As for domain selection, and with Nick's niche marketing process, the domain MUST have they keyword and only that keyword because you have more weight (even without seo) in the eyes of google. I know from experience with one of the sites I'm still developing. I did no seo and it was sitting on page 2. Now I'm at 7th spot on page 1.

                If your keyword is smallbluewidgets, then make sure you get a domain only with smallbluewidgets. If you can't get the exact domain name then find a new niche, theres plenty out there so don't get hung up on it. I know what it feels like to want a certain domain and not being able to get it and then sulk. But if your looking at it from a money making point of view. We're here to make money and provide useful information. Nowadays I find new niches left right and center, plenty of birds in the sky.

                Does not matter if it's a .com or .net, if your site is at number 1 on google, people will click no matter the extension. Your probably asking which one does google favour? .com or .net or any other extension. Google favours none, it only favours relevancy.

                As for blogspot, that should be used as part of your seo strategy. There's no reason why you cant use a blogspot websites as oppose to your own domain but you will have to work extra hard to have the same seo effect compared to having the exact domain name as it is.

                  As for domain selection, and with Nick's niche marketing process, the domain MUST have they keyword and only that keyword because you have more weight (even without seo) in the eyes of google. I know from experience with one of the sites I'm still developing. I did no seo and it was sitting on page 2. Now I'm at 7th spot on page 1.

                  If your keyword is smallbluewidgets, then make sure you get a domain only with smallbluewidgets. If you can't get the exact domain name then find a new niche, theres plenty out there so don't get hung up on it.

                  So when picking the domain do you pick the singular form or plural form? Let's say Google Keyword tool indicates monthly search volume for "small blue widget" is 850 and for "small blue widgets" it is 575. Do you go with "www.smallbluewidgets.com" or www.smallbluewidget.com"? If both domain names are available do we go with the plural form since that contains the singular form as well (even though there is less search volume)?

                    Go for the keyword that has the most searches. It doesn't matter if singular or plural. Search count is what matters. Obviously the more the better.
                    It's best to work on one keyword and see if it converts before you go for the other keyword. Just a quick note. It takes hard work to just work on 1 keyword let alone 2 keyword. Get one to start paying money then move on.

      Great to hear, thanks.
      I have built up my network of websites over 6 years, I now try to create a new site every 2 weeks. No, not All amazon sites. Amazon make up about 10% of my sites. All my promotion and traffic comes from ranking well after executing a good SEO strategy. I don't spend money on Adwords, and while I know many people live and die by Adwords, I have, in my opinion, more sustainable things to spend my money on.
      Cheers

          These are the 3 main components of SEO:
          • Link building
          • Content creation
          • On page SEO

    Hello Nick,

    I have been trying to earn online since last year May (its going to be a yr next month), yet still struggling to launch a website of my own on any niche let alone earn from it. You have really affect my perception about IM because I have always been mislead by the so called guru's blue print "make money online niche" thus, I never have the concept that people are making so much money from other micro niches. I have been sucked - so sad !

    I have some few things to ask you, sorry it might be funny coz I am still new;

    1. I want to PM you but I dont know how ?
    2. How can I be an affiliate of amazon atleast to start and focus on one thing with the knowledge gain from your videos ?
    3. I would also appreciate to have your contact i.e skype or so.....?

    I just want to be rich and famous....!!!

      You need to watch Nick's keyword research videos so that you can understand the area you're going to promote. Lots of people say promote what your passion, what you're good at but I like to say promote what people are buying. Use google to find item keywords then use amazon to find a matching product.

      https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/
      have a decent website first so they can accept you.

      Once your in your amazon account, there are tabs that say link banners, widgets. Go through them by typing in the product you want to promote and you will be given your links.

    I was looking through the forum and I saw this post and I was like hmm how is that possible but I watched your video sounds really good

    I have made some sales from amazon associate program but wow never ever that much im still trying to understand how that is even possible doing a simple niche site on a child toy I dont know something just dont seem right partically cause I promoted amazon alot and rarely have success

    this actually the first time I have heard of someone making that kind of money with amazon cause as we all know they are probably the lowest paying but if you can get those type of sales then might be worth it but thats just my two cents

    Nick,

    How many clicks does it take on average to make a sale in Amazon? Normally people don't end up buying what you're selling and buy something else, at least in my experience.

    I've noticed that it's just not fixed, and you can run hundreds of clicks and not make a sale at all. Is this normal? What would be a decent rate of return, or shall we say, CTR?

      Amazon has much better conversion rate than other program since site is very well trusted..My conversion rate is 6%-15%..averaging around 10% per month..

        Thanks for mentioning this, it is so true! So many affiliate marketers shy away from Amazon because of the generally low commission rates, what most of them don't realize is the true power of the Amazon brand and that trustworthiness of the Amazon brand helps keeps conversation rates sky high. I too average about a 15% conversation rate.
        Cheers

    Earlier in this thread I posted some keywords in the garden niche free for you guys to take.

    "Garden Spot Lights" was one of them.

    garden spot lights - Google Search

    If you search in google.com, you will now see the website ranking on the 1st page at position 6. With abit of work that owner can get it to rank number 1!

    Good work. Theres still one keyword left

    "garden wall lights"

      Hi John,
      Technically, the aStore is great and is probably the easiest way to pin a "shop" facility onto any website. My conceren is that I perefer not to link directly to amazon from any of my Niche Websites as I rather handle linking through nofollow redirects. With aStore you have no control over the linking.
      Cheers

        Hello Nick,

        Are you saying you do not use astore to link back to amazon. If yes what better linking do you use, Is it widget?

        I have been trying to work around all the linkings including widgets, astore etc. but do not appreciate direct link to amazon as you state "I perefer not to link directly to amazon from any of my Niche Websites as I rather handle linking through nofollow redirects" - How do you mean by this statement.

        Thanks in advance.....

        And once again, thanks for your coaching....
