How to increase Amazon earnings

Updated on April 5, 2011

The earning potential of Amazon affiliate program

Amazon is a well known affiliate program that many have doubts about because of such small commission earnings per sale. Although the possibility to make money online with Amazon may seem better than other affiliate programs, Internet marketers chasing a dream won't take the time to work with them. There are some people out there that get big checks from this program. The large database can be a goldmine if you market it effectively.

Lots of success stories with the Amazon affiliate program can be found online, telling of odd-defying earnings in their ordinary lives. A story I found to be credible was a blog post on Problogger, which can be found in the resource section of this site. This Internet marketer told of how he made over $100,000 since being signed up with the program. This blog post also has some helpful information on making money online with Amazon.

Focus on traffic

Don't chase after any type of traffic because if it's irrelevant, it won't work. Grab visitors that are targeting your selected keywords or similar ones. Having people coming to your website that are interested in your content is a better way of converting them into customers. This may help you secure your future as far as making money online with Amazon.

The easiest way to promote a product is through your website, but since some won't have that luxury, we're gonna focus on article marketing. Having articles can effect your chances to make money online because it's so targeted and readers know exactly what they're getting when they click your links. Html article publishing is even better to make money online with Amazon because you can place ads within and let the image grab the reader's attention. Web 2.0 websites such as Hubpages are even better because you have multiple tools to show even more relevant content and make money online.

Product popularity

Something you may try to avoid when working with programs such as the Amazon affiliate program is how much the product you're gonna promote sells. Most people believe the best way is promoting the product with the least amount of sells. This may be true in some cases, but not when it comes to Amazon. The more a products sells may mean the more people there will be, willing to jump on the bandwagon.

The popular products seem to be ones that buyers are most interested in. Certain items can become sort of a fashion statement, depending on what kind of product it is. When products become widespread, people wanna know what's the fuss about. Basically you're making money online off followers.
