This topic may well run into a series of 2 or 3 posts (if you want it to, leave a comment) as I aim to show you how to earn with Amazon, if you get a taste for it you’ll be be to scale your earnings at your own leisure.
First it’s not a scam or a flash in the pan gig, people have been making a good second income with Amazon since the invention of the internet, what may be of surprise to you is how easy it is to start and how fast you can start to see a regular dependable income from it.
How To Earn A Second Income With Amazon?
Amazon just like 1000′s of other company’s run a free affiliate program called Amazon Associates. When someone arrives at Amazon after clicking “your” Amazon link you are paid a commission between 4% and 8%, now that may not sound like much but it is a commission on everything they buy during that visit too.
The first thing you need to do to promote Amazon products is to sign up to their affiliate program. Then you can browse through the Amazon website to find products to promote. Keep in mind that the higher the selling price the more commission you will make. Every time that a customer visits Amazon through your affiliate links and makes a purchase you will earn a commission.
When you have chosen an Amazon product to promote you can then create a blog or website for promoting the product. There are some free blogging services that you can use like WordPress, squidoo or Weebly or you can use a paid domain and hosting. I would highly recommend that you use the paid option if you want to be taken seriously in your business.
There are many tutorials available teaching you how to set up a blog using WordPress and it really is quite easy. When you have a blog set up it is simply a matter of updating it with new content regularly.
Amazon sells product worldwide and is a trusted store worldwide which is why it is so successful in its affiliate program. Because they are a trusted company people feel safe buying products through their online store so the conversion rate is quite high, some of my sites convert at 8-9%.
You don’t have to choose one product to promote and that is all, you can choose a number of products that relate to the same niche. You can then add content to your blog for each of the products that you are promoting.
There are a number of Amazon widgets that you can use on your blog so that your customers can view images of the products that you are promoting.
Why Amazon Affiliate Marketing?
1. If you are looking for a way to earn a second income then you may have come across affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is basically when you promote other people’s products and you earn a commission for each sale that you make. The advantage of promoting products as an affiliate is that you don’t need to have your own product to sell; instead you sell other people’s products to earn money.
So this is one good reason to become an Amazon affiliate – because you can earn money by promoting their products just like my latest home and garden reviews site.
If you work hard at your affiliate business, and all that takes is just 30 -40 minutes every day you could quickly start to earn a second income with Amazon.
2. Amazon has a huge range of products – literally thousands and thousands of products over a wide range of niches that you can promote. Because there are thousands of products to choose from to promote, the competition is widely spread and you can find some great products to promote with very little competition at all.
3. The Amazon affiliate program is easy to apply for and usually quite easy to be accepted for. There are other affiliate programs online that have a much harder application process and they will also reject many applications, but Amazon is quite good for accepting new affiliates into their program. You get instant access to your affiliate account and you can begin promoting products immediately once you have applied to the Amazon affiliate program.
