Updated on March 28, 2017

What is Amazon?

Sounds interesting right? Yes, it does to me. Amazon is a global online store where sellers list their items for sale, buyers find items to buy, and money makers earn money through promoting of those listed items. What happens is that an affiliate promotes an already existing product in a supported way, drives traffic to that item, and earns money from every qualifying purchase buyer pays for. You can see how easy it is when it comes to making money.

But the big question remains on how exactly does one become rich by just being an Affiliate. In this Hub, I am sharing with you factual ways which when followed, anyone can easily make money to an extent of becoming rich. Yes, you can become rich just like the many famous internet marketers share doing..

Don't quote me wrong. There are very many factors which will determine your success on Amazon as an affiliate.

If you understand what getting committed means, what willingness to do things mean, and what your input and the way you do things mean, then you should follow the below and prove it yourself.

Free kindle reading application - Yes, this is a free Kindle reading application which can either be installed on a smart mobile device, and or onto a computer.

Calculate it yourself and find the answer.

Free Trial offers - People love free things. And I am sure you too wouldn't bypass any free offer if it avails. The same applies to people who buy from, and or make use of Amazon. From what I know, most of these trial offers pay up to $3 and above. This means that the more people who sign up for such offers under your referral link, the higher your chances of earning. Look into it and see how many people you have.

Mobile phones - Did you know that a single iPhone 6s 128 GB can earn you more than $40 if sold under your referral link? How about other similar devices which have caught the attention of many? Yes, mobile phones, accessories and computers do earn higher since the good ones are always sold at high prices. Try that today and tell me tomorrow.
