Lets face it, I do not make may full time income from Amazon.com but I do know how to make money online in general. I have to be honest here and say I am a newbie at promoting Amazon goods and seriously did not think the system they offered would even work. The thing is the Amazon cookie ends when the person leaves the Amazon website. This means that if a person clicks on your link, browses the site and leaves, then goes back a few seconds later to buy, your referral does not count. You have to send the person there to buy now.
I guess a lot of people say that Google AdSense is impossible to make money with too, but we all know they can all be great if you put your time and effort into them.
All of these small clicks or small sales add up and become a mighty big income. Do not doubt this, because the doubters are the ones that quit first and are left wondering why their WordPress website is not making money.
When you actually make money online you start to realize that whatever you are selling, it is the same steps needed to succeed. You need a profitable niche, keywords, content, and then promotion. Of course we all know it is a lot more detailed than that but that will do for now.
Quick tips on how to make money on Amazon.com
- Make websites about top selling products.
- Choose a particular product and specialize in it. In other words do not be too broad.
- Write reviews using only original content.
- Perform on page and off page SEO so the search engines can find your content.
- Add pictures into your content of the product you are selling, linking to Amazon..
- Contact companies to see if you can personally test the product.
As I stated above, I am not and expert at selling Amazon products, however this is pretty much the same steps I use to sell anything. You can add your extra tips and tricks to share with us below in the comment section.
Shortcuts on how to make money on Amazon.com
Instead of researching what products sell on Amazon and manually inserting the links into your own blog, of course there are little shortcuts you can use to make your life easy. One of these shortcuts is Chris Guthries’ EasyAzon Amazon plug-in.
This amazing piece of software got me more interested in Amazon as I was focusing on Adsense and certain affiliate promotions. I do very well with what I promote but I could not help myself, I had to try this WordPress plugin for myself. I basically started from zero sales at Amazon and just by placing a few links on some pages, I am now up to around $50 for the month.. You might not think this is much but I have only literally placed about 10 links into my website. Of course I picked a few good pages but I am very impressed with this outcome.
This is great because I really haven’t done anything special here.
Before having Chris Guthrie’s plug-in, I always had trouble adding Amazon links to my blogs. Part of the nightmare was that I had to go and find a link, customize it, copy the code, and then bring it back to my blog and insert it. Seriously this was more work than I preferred.
So would I recommend this EasyAzon plugin? Hell yeah! I would not even bother going to amazon and creating links when it is just so easy to do it inside your post. I actually avoided promoting Amazon stuff as it was just too much of a chore to get the links or deal with weird bandwidth hogging plugins..
Go and check out the EasyAzon WordPress plugin for yourself.
I guarantee it will make you money. I seriously cannot believe how easy it is…
Make Money on Amazon.com With AzonSpy
Ok this is the next groovy shortcut to making money with Amazon. This WSO (Warrior Special Offer) has gone nuts! It is selling like crazy and of course it does not cost the earth.
This would go well with the EasyAzon plugin as AzonSpy gives you information on what products are best to promote and also provides full training to go with it.. Not just training for the software though…Training for each step of building a website to sell Amazon products. It even starts out at the “finding a niche” step.
There is more though. There is also a membership area with full training. Of course these guys from the warrior forum, along with Chris Guthrie, can all prove that they’ve made massive amounts of money from Amazon. Who better to buy a product from, than people that have actually done the hard yards and made money online from scratch. These people did not start out experienced in Internet marketing or selling products for Amazon, they worked their way up and became successful.
If I had to choose one plugin though, I would choose the EazyAzon plugin because it does Geo targeting. This alone increases your sales.
