    What if I send emails to my subscribers with amazon aff-links? I mean the visitor will be redirected to Amazon aff-link direct from my email not my website.

    No. Its against amazons terms and conditions, but if you do it on a small scale I doubt you would get caught. This strategy worked me for me for expensive items but always low email volume. Target individuals.

    Your best bet to get around this rule is to send your email subscribers to a review site with the product you are interested in selling.

    Amazon moderates referrals thoroughly, they will get to know from where the referrals are coming from and it will end up getting your affiliate account blocked. You can email customers the links to your website or landing page on which the product with affiliate link is listed.

    Regardless of whether it is against Amazons terms, you could proxy that through a brief landing page. What you really want to look out for is your countries regulations on email marketing.
