    Hi there,

    I am really into Amazon Affiliate program nowadays and I wonder new ways to earn money with it.

    Take a look at these accounts:

    https://twitter.com/groupamazon
    https://twitter.com/Amazondeals2
    https://twitter.com/shopperamazon
    https://twitter.com/NowAmazonDeals

    It is really simple, you find a targeted market and then you sell/promote products which have discounted prices to them.

    I know there are better ways to monetize via Amazon Affiliates (niche websites) because people which read Twitter are not into the buying mode, but if you automatize all via a script using Amazon API, it will be profitable.

    What do you think about that?

    Twitter has without a doubt been the worst converting traffic for me.

    Obviously it can vary massively depending on niche etc. But I found people on twitter aren't really looking to buy anything.

    What type of product are you selling? What is your conversion percentage?

    Out of the 4 main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest) which one do you think converts better?

    You can try Amazon and Tumblr that seems to work better.

    It all depends on your followers, if they are into it or not. But unless you have large audience, you'll need to wait long time to see even a small profit
