These are undisputed facts; Amazon is a well respected and trusted online brand, they offer thousands upon thousands of products to millions of businesses and consumers around the globe. But what does this mean for you?
Making money online – if you are reading this, you have shared the dream of many!
The great news is that if you combine your dream, the huge Amazon product line and brand recognition, and a little ingenuity you can share in the profits of the largest online retailer on the planet.
So how can you make money online with Amazon?
Amazon is huge! Amazon is one of the biggest stores online and sells products worldwide. Amazon has thousands of products that it sells and the conversion rate on those products is quite high.
So where do you come in?
Well Amazon has an affiliate program called the Amazon Associate Program where they will pay you a commission if you refer customers to them to buy products and services.
What’s really nice about working with Amazon products is your ability to intersect with consumers who already know what they are looking for and are ready to buy. By simply guiding them to the right set of Amazon products the consumer gets exactly what they want (at a great price), and you get a commission for your minimal efforts.
As an example: assume you decide to offer wide screen computer monitors. You will be targeting people that are already looking at monitors and already intend to buy one. That’s half the battle, your customer intends to buy. All you need to do is guide them along the path to the best deal!
So you create a simple site or blog related to wide screen monitors 3D. You can promote one brand or offer a selection. It is also wise to offer some related products.
Now, for each product you talk about on your website or blog, you have a link that to Amazon where they can buy that product. The link contains your affiliate code so that Amazon knows who referred that customer. If the customer buys a wide screen monitor through your affiliate link you earn a commission. Sounds good so far right? Well it gets better…
Let’s say your customer buys the wide screen monitor and then decides to add a monitor stand and a couple of games to go with it. Well, guess what? You get commissions on the entire sale! And I assure you, It is very common for people to land at Amazon through your link and buy multiple products.
Offering Amazon products on your website or blog is an easy way to make money online. I recommend you join the Amazon Associate program and start making money today. It’s free to join
