    Hello everybody,
    Is there any way to join amazon affiliates program if we do not have a website ?
    I thought it's ok to use twitter and other social networks to bring traffic to my affiliate links
    So I've signed up for an amazon affiliates account and stated twitter and bit as my websites.
    I used bonus points I earned on addmefast to buy twitter tweets and included my affiliate links on those tweets.
    Then I posted few reviews on some forums about some products selling very well on amazon and I managed to give direct links of the tweets I got thru addmefast ( those tweets were the proof the products I was reviewing are quite interesting and people are talking about them actually :D )
    I was quite surprised I made 74 usd in 2 days only and had 12% conversion rate !!
    Later amazon closed my account

    Too good to be true ?

    Knowing that almost all the traffic will come from twitter tweets (accounts I do not own) what should I do to resubmit an application and be on the safe side ? what should I mention as website to join amazon if I don't own one myself ? and what if I hide the referrer and make twitter traffic appears as a direct link traffic should this help ?

    I don't think you can be a member unless you have a website to show them.

    Its not possible to get account back according to me, you need to build a blog then apply again. Simple blogger blog is enough.

    Forget the old account and apply for a new one. Get yourself a domain, add some articles (20+, can be scraped from other sources), add Amazon ToS and make it a nice looking site (some magazine theme). If you want to earn like you did before then instead of spamming your aff links you better cloak the links through your site so the Amazon seest that the traffic is coming through your domain. You can set up a good site within an hour, then apply and start spamming again. As soon as you get the traffic (and maybe some sales) you get approved.

    Cheers

    Build a video autoblog (preferrably recipes) using wp-robot or any auto plugin should take 30 mins or less. Apply again.

    I do not have any web designing or any tech skills :(
    I can't even outsource the work as I'm from a country where it's almost impossible to pay online !
    Actually I was so happy I could earn with amazon without any website !
    But let's suppose I managed to get a blog or website my own, how to do with the fact that traffic comes from direct links (no referrer) or twitter ?

    can you use the 1 associate account with more than 1 site?

    because when you signup for an amazon associates account it asks for your website, but what if you want to use affiliate links on more than 1 site?

    I think there was a limit for 5 sites but you can have unlimited id-s. But i have never heard that anyone has had problems using more than 5 sites.

    It's possible to use more than a website to join the program but you have to pay attention

    "While our application form will accept multiple URLs, we process the the form as a single application. If one URL in the application is unacceptable, the entire application will be unacceptable"

    That's what shows on the email I got following my account closure

    Yeah, it was good to earn but you still didn`t get the money. WP is so easy to install, no need to outsource. You can use CPA-Redirector (or any other) to fake the referer which you can learn when you use search button or Google. Set things up correctly and you get the money you earn.

    Cheers

    Direct social media traffic is a no-no with AMZN. If you do it, you need to cloak the redirection via some middleman page, never send direct traffic.

    You may try rescuing the account but the odds are against you.
