    Here's a little tip to earn more once you're making sales.

    Every month you start with 4% commission and this increases after a certain number of sales.

    Make a couple of sites targeting different niches but dedicate 2-3 of those to cheap products. Cheap items sell faster than high-ticket items. Profit will be minimal on these sites but that's not the purpose.

    Sales from these cheap products will get you back to the max. commission fast. And that's exactly what you want when the high-ticket sales start rolling in.

    Offer value! After 2 years as an affiliate I can tell you that if you offer value to your visitors they are more inclined to buy from you. And add some text near the "buy from Amazon" link that is very visible and says something like "During our research we have found that Amazon has the best prices for <product category name>. Make sure to check them out if you want to buy <product name>."

    The review method always seems to work well.

    Review the product and SELL the benefits not the features. Add ratings, images and video if you can.

    Add a Pros and Cons list.

    Like it has been said before - Add value

    Remember the basics of sales "CALL TO ACTION!!!!"

    I'm also a big fan of the carousel widgets within the post.

    agree with all the comments above

    also check the price of the products you sell.

    you don't want to be promoting $20 items at 6%
