    So, my current strategy (in short) is to create review videos and upload them on YouTube. I've read through the Amazon Affiliate TOS and Operating Agreement and I never read anything specifically saying that you couldn't use social media sites (unless I missed it).

    Anybody else promoting Amazon products on YouTube specifically with success? If so, how long have you been doing it for? Also, if you know that Amazon doesn't accept social media traffic, please link/show me the page where they state it.

    I know I can create an Amazon review website and link to it, but I'd rather not because this way is much easier for me.

    I just started implementing my method a day ago and made a sale already. I don't want to scale up if it's against the TOS or if I have a chance of getting banned.

    Thanks in advanced,
    Joey

    There have been post made about getting Amazon bans for using YouTube and other social media sites.

    One of the biggest problems is Amazon bans accounts that dont display their Discloser Statement.

    I have posted Amazon affiliate links in YouTube descriptions in the past but have since pulled them. Its just not worth the risk in my opinion.

    I guess you are fine if you do not make any incorrect claim about the product!
    Also; to be on the safe side; put a disclaimer in the video description !
