How To Make 200 Dollars In One Day With Amazon Affiliates Program?

Updated on October 19, 2012

How can I make 200 dollars in one day?

This is a question many people want answered. The simple answer to make $200 dollars in one day is to get a good job earning six figures a year. However, in a tough economy, getting and keeping a good job is hard, as we can get fired at anytime. Using your free time to find a backup job is a good idea. Making $200 in one day is not hard once you get the right key to open the treasure chest. In this article, I just mention how to make $200 a day with the Amazon Affiliates Program. There may be plenty of ways to make money on the internet or with offline jobs, but making money with Amazon is simple and many beginners can do it.

What is the Amazon Affiliates Program?

Amazon Affiliates Program is for publishers who sign up with Amazon Associate. When you share a link and buyers buy products on Amazon within 24 hours, you will get commission. It can vary from 4% to 15%, but mostly at 4%. If you sale more products, this rate will increase. Amazon is a big online book store but it is also a big online supermarket. People do not only buy books, they are also buying movies, music, games, electronics, home and garden tools, clothing, shoes... There are hundreds of sub departments on Amazon, and if you pick one of them, it can show thousands of products. You share an Amazon link with your friends or family or put it on the web and whenever someone buys from your links, you will make money. Doesn't it look simple? You can read more about how to apply to Amazon program.

How to apply to the Amazon Affiliates program?

You will need a website to apply, and you can use a free site if you do not want to spend money in the beginning. You must write some posts or articles and apply to Amazon affiliates programs. They will verify it within a few days. If you have no experience about online marketing, I recommend that you use free services. If you later feel this job is not suited for you, you do not lose your money to invest a domain, hosting or themes... Some recommend options are: : It belongs to Google. You may not need technical skills to blog with it. It is free to register, and you can embed the Amazon widget on your blog. You must follow their rules to prevent them from banning your blog. It is easy to control and has limited functions, but it is good enough for beginners. It is authority website. It is free also, but this has a shared revenue system. Users will receive 60% of the income and Hubpages keep the rest. It means your Amazon links will show for 60% of hub's visitors. Whenever these visitors buy during the 60% of time, you will get 100% of the commission. Someone may think this is not good, but with Hubpages you do not invest any money for start up. Another good thing is Hubpages get a lot of traffic from search engine so your articles will have more visitors. Many hubbers makes thousand dollars per month from Hubpages, and you can learn a lot from them also.

Traditional option: buy a domain name and hosting and post reviews on your website. You will control all your articles and revenue from them. I will provide some good services to start a website at the bottom of this article. You can save some money for your business with these.

So you get an account with one of the free services or create your own website and start to write articles and post them. After three articles, you can send the application to the Amazon affiliates program.

What do I need to make money with Amazon?

You must have patience as well as writing, web, and Internet skills.

Why do I put patience as the first skill? This job is not for impatient people because it is a real business.You may succeed, but you may also fail to make money. Whether you succeed or fail, you always learn a lesson. So the first skill is patience. I believe if you had a good guide and a proper plan and follow it, you will make $200 a day easily.

Writing: This may be a hard part. Many people do not like writing, I do not like it also, but when you can write 10 articles, you can write hundreds of articles. If you are not sure how to write, just pick products which you have used or know some information about and write review about them. You can search on Hubpages and see what people write products reviews on. If you hate writing, you can hire someone do it for you at Fiver. Taking action and beginning to work is the key. After few months, when you go back to see your first article, you may laugh because it has a lot of mistakes. However, if you never get started, you cannot look back. After you know how to do it and have some budget, you can outsource to get more revenue.

What do you need to write about?

You are a seller, so you must think about it: acting as a buyer not as a seller, you may imagine what customers need. Example: you go to a shop to buy something, and the seller talks too much about products. She says this is a very good product with many functions, giving you old information and sounding like a machine. Do you believe her and want to buy something? You need to write about useful things and help customers buy the products.

Web skills: if you want to make a real business, you need to have some knowledge about web and html code. It is not too hard to learn. With the web code, there are many tools to make it easy. With beginners, it takes few days to become familiar with it. Once you spend a month to work with Amazon affiliates programs, you will see this is simple.

Amazon affiliates tips- How to make more money?

I will share some tips to make money with Amazon affiliates. People may think making money online is hard thing, but you can make money with some simple promotion steps:

- Amazon has many kinds of promotion tools such as product links, banner links, text links, Amazon widgets and aStore. You may try to test them all to find what is suitable with your articles and your website. With me, the text links and buy widget are getting the most conversion.

- The general content will get less conversion than specific product content. So you should write about some products and get more money rather than writing generic content.

-The traditional way it works: build a website and get traffic. Many people make thousands of dollar this way.

- If your articles get a lot of visitors but have no sales, your visitors may be from other countries or do not want to buy that product. You must find another source for traffic or change the keywords.

Plan to get $200 a day

Someone asked me the summary plan to make $200 in one day with Amazon. This is my plan, and you may use all of the above tips in this plan:
Step 1: Choose keywords and products. You should not select the competitors’ keywords when starting. This is most important step, it decide to your success.
Step 2: Write product review articles base on your selected keyword and embed your Amazon affiliate links.
Step 3: Promote your site and get targeted traffic.
Step 4: If someone buys, find out what product made the commission so you can rinse and repeat. Try to find the way to make $1, $5, $10 and $20 per day.
Step 5: When you have $20 per day you will have a budget for building links to push your articles for a high search engine ranking. Focus on best seller articles and expand steps 1, 2, and 3. This way you can make $200 in one day easily.

      Nice Hub. Id be pleased with 100 dollars a day. The hardest part is generating traffic.

      Which backlinking method have you had the most success with getting your site ranked high? I know backlink diversity is important, but is there one specific method you focus most on.

      To durgyy: you must invest time to step 1 : search keyword and find the good keyword for your product review.

      Step 2 will help you transfer visitors to Amazon, if your review is good , you will get higher conversion.

      Step 3 promote site as I say in step 1, you must find a keyword with less competitors. You can promote it by social bookmarking, blog comment, forum signature... you can finish quickly by hire good persons at Fiverr.

      And you must TAKING ACTION.

      Hi I am not agree with

      Step 2: Write product review articles and embed your Amazon affiliate links.

      Reason - To write product review article you need to follow good strategy as competition is very high. So it need lots time and effort

      Step 3: Promote your site and get targeted traffic.

      Reason - To promote site is not much easy as it seen.

      Thank Granny's House. Make money at Amazon like a business. People fail because they do not try. If we do not know about it, we can research, learn from others, or buy some books. After that, we can try and test what suit with our business. When someone go to our Amazon links and want to buy, they may use Amazon many time before and have an account on Amazon already, so they will buy it easily with their confident. Many of my buyers do not buy the products on my links, they buy another products, and we get commission also.

      To Your Great success.
