Amazon affiliate marketing is something I've always wanted to really get my fingers into and mess around with. The idea that a person could go to Amazon through your link for the purpose of buying a certain item, but end up buying others at the same time and giving you commissions on the extra items as well is just an awesome one to me. So it's time to take action and make some stores. I have a plan, which I've already started to carry out. I'm going to start with one store and use it as a learning tool to help me more efficiently create more stores in other niches later on down the road. This first store is based on a niche I'm extremely passionate about, and that was done on purpose as I'm going to be spending a fair chunk of time on this. Besides this niche being something that I'm passionate about, it's also a niche in which there are a load of accessories that people tend to buy while buying the main products, so more chances for yummy commissions on up sells. This particular niche lends itself rather well to video reviews, so YouTube will be my primary focus point for traffic generation. First step is to start importing items into my shop. There are literally thousands of items in the niche I've picked, so importing could take a while, but I'm going to start with the bare essentials first and then just add to it little by little. Once the bare essentials are added I'll work on traffic generation while I continue to add items to the store. Another good thing about this niche is that it lends itslf well to long tail keyword terms. So this shall be my secondary focal point for traffic generation. Seeing as though it is 7:30PM as I type this, I shall use this as a check in time every day to update this thread on my progress. My current goal - To get 1 sale in 30 days. I already had a domain which I'll be using as well as hosting. I've gone with a very nice free theme from WooThemes which fits in well with their WooCommerce plugin which I will be using as a template for my store. Today I began the import process (I've purchased an automatic tool for this. Unfortunately, it's meh at best as it doesn;t produce the exact results I'm after so a touch of tweaking is required. So the import process is semi automatic) I may hand out my link to certain members at my discretion if anyone is interested. Join me and lets see how this pans out!
