New Easier Link Building Tool At Amazon (How It Works)

Updated on September 17, 2015

Amazon just came up with a super easy way to build tracked links to any of their product description pages you want by changing things slightly. It used to be you had to sign in to your amazon associates account first then sign in to the amazon regular site from another page with the same log in details. When you did so a grey colored stripe would appear on top of the page and one of the buttons read "link to this page."

It would appear on any page there so you could go to the product page you want and then click the "link to this page" button. A box would appear and you would click "text" and then click " "link to this page location" on the drop down menu. Then you would go to and paste the amazon url you just copied into a search shaped box and then click the go button. It would turn your long coded amazon url into a short link that you could post anywhere and it would go to the product page you wanted and you would get paid if anyone bought it at the same time they got there. But now it is easier. Here's how.

Lately, after you sign into your associates account you sign into Amazon' regular pages, pick the page you want to link to and click "short link to this page" button. Yes,.click it and a box appears with a coded short link already highlighted and ready to copy. Just click "copy" and its ready to paste anywhere.

Your best bet is to paste it into regular emails to subscribers. But you can put them in articles at directories or at your blog or in Facebook posts,etc. Again I had best luck with email campaigns. I put an opt in box at my Budwig blog and offered a free email course and people clicked on the links in the email to buy things they needed to do the things taught in the course. I hope to do more of those kinds of things in the future after I am more confident in my copy writing skills. You might too. Its that easy techie-wise.

Strictly speaking, though, I recommend you learn how to sell with the ,written word as well. A good book for that is The Copywriter's Handbook by Robert Bly. It is by far the best for the money.on the subject. It is much better than many costing hundreds of dollars. If you don't think so you can refund it with no explanation required. Might be worth a good, relaxed read. You're bound to learn a lot of stuff you might not have known otherwise. Wouldn't hurt your writing in general at all. You can get it used for $5.96.
