    Default Anyone making good money with the Amazon Affiliate Program?

    I just started using Amazon affiliates and I noticed that there commission rates were lower then most affiliates I have worked with before. However, they have tons of products and they are a trusted brand so they have benefits.

    Is anyone making some good money out there with Amazon? If you want to give me an idea of how much that would be great, but it's obviously not necessary.

    Thanks

    Yeah, we do good with Amazon. The key is to choose good keywords, you have to be sure about the product profitability in terms of Amazon sales. Keyword research for Amazon sites is a lot harder than for Adsense sites as lots of elements need to be met like product price high enough, product availability on Amazon, likelihood someone will order this from Amazon or from other specialized stores, etc.. If done properly, it's worth of your time.

    Well, I think you're doing it backwards but if you want to go that route, you should:

    Consider your target audience, and what their interests may be. Then select products that fit their daily lifestyle. Put yourself in their shoes and think about what you would buy if you were reading the content posted on your website.

    I'm stuck in the $600-$700 a month range at the moment
    ...... trying to get to $2000 a month.

    I think in terms of your question - Amazon should be part of every marketers sites - simply because of the name and they pay. I've been in CPA networks where they just shut you down or take you off an offer etc and it sucks - but with Amazon you know your money is coming the last wednesday of the month.

    Probably shouldn't be the only thing you do - but yeah get involved and figure out what works for you.

    Good Luck

    no different from any other method.

    research products - make site - post content/purchase links
    then Seo the site the best you can.... the worse you are at Seo the more sites you will need.

    I think you gotta remember - that you have to find something that works for you and your abilities..... because what I do or how I do it - may not work for you.

    Cheers

    I have one site that is ranked #1 for a keyword I found through research. This month is my best yet, I am already at $480 earned with another week to go still. I am super-excited because while I did do some big research to find this term, I consider myself a NOOB when it comes to this stuff. I am a fulltime carpenter that builds houses, not a computer programmer.

    My site is setup with a nice long article that sort of serves as a review for the "top 3" items that my keyword is. All link to amazon products.

    The thing that concerns me at this moment is: Can I do anything better to maximize profit from this site? I see some people have amazon sites setup that are more like stores, where they can click the 'buy now' button that puts them through to amazon. I would be interested in seeing a comparison between this "store" type of website, and an article one like my own in terms of CTR and conversion rates.

    The route i'm trying to take involves a MNS with 5 articles explaining the medical condition (goes in categories + add on site SEO)....

    Then 3 reviews for the top 3 products I use to treat the condition (but i am just faking like I have the illness)

    the condition usually requires on-going treatment so hopefully I could get returning customers unless they just go on amazon the next time

    I want to add a buy now button from my page to spice it up leading them to amazon

    but i'm wondering if the amazon ecommerce store site would do me better hmmmmm

    Amazon is an excellent program. It's just one of several that I use, but we pull $XX,XXX/mo from it alone. Unrelated sales around the holidays are very nice

    Make sure the site that you signed up as an affiliate doesn't infringe on a trademark name..

    I signed up the site to monetise for a particular technology product and got rejected cos of the site name (contains the trademark name)..

    I have another approach - very few people is working on Electronic because earnings are capped on 4 %, if you take any other products you can get up to 8 % (depend on numbers of sold products) so I took electronic Telephones, tablets, computer parts like motherboards, power supply etc. much easier to do SEO and more sales compensate low aff cut %.

    There are plenty of azon site builders - I'm testing Associate-o-matic and Amaniche. I'd have to start two new sites with the same type of advertizing to really find out which is better, at the moment the Associate-o-matic wins in revenue generated.
    It's more difficult to rank them, though, so you need a different source of traffic besides g.

    I'm now on a program called OneX and I make up to 640$ per month ( not big deal ) I'm searching for other affiliate programs just like you , amazon its not bad for a webmaster but since my site is not SEO ranked , I dont have to worry about this affiliate program .

    Amazon's 24h cookie suckkkks...!

    It just leaves you with the thought "how many buy after these 24hours?"

    I agree on the holiday season though - anything goes then.
    But the rest of the year above reason spoiles the motivation.

    To profit from the "amazon link reputation" ALWAYS combine your amazon-afiliate-links with others; so your visitor has a choice - just imagine the traffic you lose / the visitors who simply look somewhere else after they saw your "single) amazon-link:

    "All right, this site has a good review about xyz, and here's an amazon link..*click*..hm,average price..fine...let's quickly look at other sites..googlegoogle...clickclick..ok, let's do that tomorrow then"

    When he comes back - Commission lost due to the 24h cookie.
    If you have other links as well, chances you sell him/her are much much higher; he/she might not even search somewhere else!

    Hi guys.
    Im new to this site and the whole idea of affiliate programms. Basicly my question is this- is it still possible to earn some what good money in amazon or other sites by sending out lots of e-mails (with my link) instead of making my website with banners? Do you guys have such experience?
    Thank you. (sorry if this isn't the most appropriate place to ask this question)

    I totally agree, Amazon affiliates have so many twists and turns, you just have to find your way. Find the method you feel comfortable doing, and it works for you in terms of time spent/money banked.
    Amazon should be a part of your rising IM empire, as it's very reliable compared to other programs. The money will come, and your account is safe.
    Cheers!

    I'm averaging about $300-$400 monthly but can't seem to get over the hump and make more. Honestly, I think it's a numbers game and the more sites you put up, the more you make. Just need to redouble my efforts and then redouble again. It does work and it's passive income once they get going.

    Personally, i don't promote amazon products as affiliate because of their low commission, but Amazon is one of the reputable & profitable company.

    So after a week > 50.000 ad views and 0 sales

    Well Adsense and amazon are different ... Amazon you got to target people wanting to buy right now .. While Adsense you try to solve their problem but not completely so they click an ad to get what they want.

    So yeah ... If they arent ready to buy when they hit your site then it's not going to be a sale.

    Also if you site looks like crap then they will just move on .. It's like an art form really .. But that's why I suggested that it's different for each person and how they try to get sales.

    Hi, mates

    I am just in Amazon Associate, but I have one question
    I am wondering if I can set countries randomly, meaning if most of my traffic comes from USA, then I set affiliate program countries as USA, even if I am not living there, and the address receiving payment is in another country??

    Could anyone please make this clear for me? as I am just worried I could not receive my payment for mis set affiliate countries

    thanks a lot in advance!

    Here's the thing with Amazon.

    The commissions are extremely low, but the cookie means they can buy something unrelated and you can make good money of that.

    So your goal should be to go for expensive products and to put the buyer in a buying mood. As long as they buy a similar product you make a solid commission.

    Electronics are a good thing to sell, you get more per sale from them because they are so expensive.

    Amazon is an extremely convenient one-stop affiliate program for physical and information products. Through one portal and highly trafficked brand name site, you can promote items in virtually every category, and also choose to market $500+ high ticket items. It's true that keyword selection is more involved, but one can create a 'trifecta' monetized site for a combination of Adsense, Amazon and even Clickbank campaigns. Start with a highly clicked Adsense base kw, then use that term to look for corresponding Amazon products to promote. There may also be a tie in for a related CPA promotion that can be cross marketed in this manner.

    There are positives and negatives for everything.. the negatives when it comes to amazon affiliate marketing are

    1) Low commission rates 4-8.5 (but better than walmart)
    2) one day cookie life.. absolutely nothing.. I will research a product today.. will not be satisfied google about the product for a couple of days and then will go back to amazon and will buy it.. so no commission for the referrer.
    3) ranking of products are difficult.. for many products amazon will rank ahead of our ranking

    Pros:

    1) You just get approved once and you have endless amount of things to sell.
    2) One of the best commission rates for electronics and computers (amazon pays 4%, compared to walmart 1%, hp 2%, lenovo 2% and so on) that means 200-300% more profit by selling the same item. Don't see it as 1% -3% more.. If you sell a laptop worth $1000, amazon will offer you $40 as commission and walmart will offer $10 that is 300% more profits.
    3) Trust Factor.. the conversion rate for me is always around 8-15%, which is tremendous.. and I don't have such conversion rates with any other programs.

    Have a healthy mix with your websites.. promote amazon, clickbank, regnow, avangate, cj, linkshare and gan.. find the right mix... if you are just making $40-50 a month through amazon, then there is something seriously wrong with you strategy.

    All the best guys

    I have many amazon websites with different price range products. Usually CTR is about 8%, which is not bad. Sometimes you got sales not related to your websites which costs way more than the price of the item you are trying to sell
    I would suggest you to build 1-2 websites for amazon with medium competition and see if you can rank them high (sometimes it's not that easy to rank due to first 3-5 spots are usually occupied by highly authority, specially after latest google update). Take your time for keyword research and analyze your competitors!

    I make a couple hundred dollars with Amazon. I've not actively promoted any of their products though; just put up a ton of sites back in the day which make the odd sale here and there.

    Good thing with Amazon is that, due to their brand name, making sales is easier and thus, even with the ridiculously low number of buyers I send to them, I make some money.
