    Hello everyone, i am new to Amazon Affiliate marketing i have an experience with CPA offers & Youtube Marketing but never done anything related to affiliate marketing. I am planning to learn a lot in 2016 about amazon affiliate i am ready to invest a lot of $$$$ in this to start a good affiliate commission website. Which will earn a me a good amount of money.

    So for the start i was thinking of buying a new domain name and Target like 2-4 different category products from amazon. Take an example of Health Care & Supplements, Baby Care Products, Electronics, Or any hot deals which offer commissions on selling.
    I am a bit confused about this because i saw people targeting single category with a single domain name and some even target only single product. Even if i target 3-4 categories i still don't know what kind of catchy domain name i have to find :/

    Any kind of advice like buying a new domain name, choosing how many categories etc etc is all welcome.

    Thank You, Looking forward to your valuable responses.

    If you are a affiliate marketing starter focus on one product which is selling well. Build a site around that niche.

    Choosing a domain for specific product (or) choosing a domain for specific niche. It's upto your option, Because you need to get higher ranking. Deponds on your marketing strategy you can choose your domain.

    You've been on BHW for almot 5 years, have you used the search function and/ or read any of the Amazon journeys to get the general points there?

    I was not much active in the start then i was into youtube and all, i have done some normal investments in CPA but didn't get a good response. Clickbank cutted my $170 of commission because i was not able to get my products sold to buyers through 3 types of payments. Everyone is buying via paypal tried different products but its still tricky. Thats why i dropped the clickbank option. I earned $170 with an investment of only $80 and i think its a good start

    Not sure if it was just an example, but I wouldn't target the electronics category as Amazon caps the commission at only 4%, which can still definitely be profitable though. I can't post a link as I'm a new member, but you can see the percentages under the "Fee Schedule" tab on the affiliate homepage
