Making Money Online Amazon Affiliate Program

Updated on July 26, 2010

To start, just some thoughts....

I've been doing tons of research into making money online over the past few years. And I've kinda discovered my "niche" sort of speak. And that is learning how to make money online. Though I know that success with these practices doesn't come easy, I'm still learning as I go and probably always will be. But I've discovered so many affiliate programs out there that are free and that drive traffic. So I'm writing a series of them for the next week or so. There is so much information to share and write about, so don't be surprised of this expands past the one week mark. And with all of the information that I've researched and learned through trial and error I'm thinking of making it into an E-book. But this is not why I'm writing this hub. Today we are going to talk about the benefits of becoming an affiliate with So lets get started shall we???????

Benefits of becoming and Amazon Affiliate.

 When  you sign on to become an Amazon Affiliate you get the benefits of earning up to 15% in referrals when you advertise Amazon's products. And the advertising itself is so easy. If you have a website you can set up a page or banner and you earn if someone buys through your links and banners. You get the full support of the staff behind you. And there are so many associates tools that are right at your finger tips to help you get started. And now we'll walk through just a few of those!


 Now widgets are easy to explain and cute to have on your blog or website. The Amazon widgets are rich, interactive mini-applications that bring the Amazon products to life on your website or blog.

They are similar to the graphic Google AdSense ads. In a way that you can place them in the side bars of your blog or website and they make access to your Amazon site easy with eye catching products for your readers or buyers. And like the links and banners you can customize them for the specific topic you have.

Links and Banners

 When becoming an Amazon Affiliate you have resources such as.....

Now these links and banners can go anywhere. If you use or have a website these links and banners can be so useful. I keep one at the top of my main blog and have driven so much traffic to my affiliate site that it's just unreal. And so easy, I mean all I've done is just place one banner on a blog.

You may be asking yourself ...How do I use the links and banners? Well it's simple really, Amazon does the work for you. They provide the code all you do is copy and paste it into your sight's html and poof there it is. And you can even link to specific products. Say you want to do a review on the new Kindle DX. Well you can create a single link to that product and not only does it provide a way for the consumer to get to the product it displays a wonderful graphic image for them as well.

But of course the traditional banners come in all shapes and sizes. And if you want a specific category, say like music, then they create a banner that displays Amazon's vast music collection. Everything from MP3 downloads to CDs


Why Amazon is so powerful for you...

 Even if after you have read all of this and are still thinking of the whys.... Maybe this could put your mind to ease..

  • People can't resist Amazon.
  • Whey they visit your sites they are reminded of the things that they want to buy. Which might entice them to click on a banner, link, or widget to browse around and you have the possibility of earning potential income. Because those tools help remind them that they want to buy something.
  • There are literally thousands upon thousands of products for them to search through. So you never have to worry about not reaching tons of people. There is always something for everybody.
  • Amazon gives you everything you need to succeed.
  • And lastly, like I mentioned before, Amazon is literally a one stop shop. Something for EVERYONE.
