Internet is a source for thousands to make handsome money and despite blogging; there are many other ways you can make money online. One such popular way is to make money with the Amazon Affiliate program. Because Amazon is a trustworthy source and many great merchants promote and make money selling on amazon.
How to Make Money with the Amazon Affiliate Program
So how you can earn money with Amazon? Follow these simple steps:
Signup for Amazon Affiliate Program
At first, sign up for the Amazon affiliate program if you are still not. After sign up, you should receive an Amazon affiliate ID which will be your unique ID to promote any Amazon product.
Once you login to your Amazon profiles and select a category, you should see the top seller list on the right side. This list updates hourly and displays 5 to 10 bestselling products of the selected category. So you can easily choose one from them or can go into the further search for choosing the right one.
Promote product on YouTube
Make a good and engaging video for the selected amazon product and post it on YouTube. But only posting a video on YouTube is not enough, you need to have more views and likes on your videos too. The easiest way to get more views is to buy YouTube views. It is the safest and hassle-free way to get more eyeballs on your videos.
If you do not have any target product or category or have not determined what to sell, then the first step you can go with is “keyword research”. Make a list of some variants like ‘product’, ‘product+couponcode’, ‘buy+product’, ‘product+review’ (here product should be replaced with your targeted product name), etc, etc. Then go to the Google Keyword tool and give an exact search for the keywords you have just selected.
Register Domain & Make a Sales Page
If you are trying to promote the product in your existing site then create a new sales page on it or if you want to go a bit extra then register an exact match domain from GoDaddy or Namecheap. If you are using GoDaddy use Coupon Code: cjc749chp for cheap $7.99 registration/year.
Exact match domains still have a great value in ranking posts higher in search engines and driving traffic to the site. Make sure that you also analyze the other pages who are in 1st page of the search ranking for your targeted keyword and check their backlink profile. You can use OpenSiteExplorer from SEOMoz (up to 3 checking free per day) to analyze the total number of backlinks of the page. It is always wise to go for low competitive keywords than highly competitive ones.
Now that you have a domain and a quality well-written sales page it’s time to building some backlinks. Hope you have already got some backlink idea and backlink strength of your competitor by this time from OpenSiteExplorer. Now you can also follow their backlink strategy or can build your one.
Another popular method I like is to go for PPC campaign. This is effective sometimes depending on the niche and the product. Say you receive $50 commission from selling a product, spend 10cent per click, the conversion rate is 1% (means every 1 visitor out of 100 buys your product).
