    Hi guys,
    Recently I started my own SMM Reseller store and building my Instagram "empire" with massplanner. Now I got a new idea how to make money... with YouTube!
    First of all, I already have a private YT channel with thousands of subs, so I think I know how to make quality content, thumbnails etc... Let's get to the topic: My plan is to look for a good (has to be really good, because my subscribers trust me, so I don't want to betray them with a bad product they should buy, hehe) Amazon product, then making kinda a review vid about it and put the affiliate link in the description. To drive traffic there, I want to use AdWords. What do you think? Will it work? The goal is of course to make money with this method, but I also want to get more subs by doing this ;)

    People are already doing this and I bet it's working for them. Is there something out-of-the-ordinary that you are doing that I'm not catching?

    Also, what do you mean you want to use Adwords? Didn't you say you're going to monetize it with an Amazon affiliate link?

    I wouldn't necessarily do a 'review' video though unless you're expecting a large commission on the item. Otherwise, you probably won't get a lot of traffic on a review video enough to justify a small commission.

    I will use AdWords to promote the video on YouTube (paying some cents per click), then hopefully I will get money from Amazon when people buy the product through the affiliate link.

    I just need to find a good product, which could have a high conversion rate and give it a try

    Hello everybody!
    I have one idea - YT + Amazon.

    1. Download a video review of any Amazon product.
    2. Find 500 keywords related to this product. 3. Make 500 copies of the video and upload
    them to the channel with a link in the description on your affiliate Amazon sale page.
    4. Repeat with another product.

    What do you think? Is there a right to live with this method or can you take a ban from an Amazon?

    When promoting with adwords you need to keep a close watch on your CR since most of the times you will spend more and earn less. But with proper testing and optimization you can enhance things.
    Also unless you keep on producing videos I doubt that you will gain enough subs.
