Amazon as we know, is one of the biggest online stores there is. You virtually get all the products out there. It may be electronic products like Mobiles, Computers or Ebooks, you get it all. It also has its own payment service in Amazon Pay. Not only is it an awesome place to buy things online, but its also an opportunity for bloggers and website owners to earn money through affiliate marketing.
Amazon has its own affiliate marketing program. So lets dig in to know more about affiliate marketing.
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is an art of earning money (commission), by promoting other people’s or company’s products.
- Find a product you would like to promote.
- Promote it to the audience on your website.
- Earn commission for each sale that you make.
Remember one thing, to promote other people’s or company’s products, you first need to have a blog or a website of your own, where you can promote those products. Such an example is Convey Arena, my technology blog, where I can promote the product I want from Amazon.
It doesn’t matter which niche website you have, you can promote any products you like. However, I would suggest that, promote a product which is relevant to your website. For example, if you are running a technology blog, then promote things like Mobiles, Computers etc. If you are running a fashion blog, promote things like Men’s Wear, Women’s Wear, Fashion Deals etc. So on so forth.
Remember, you don’t have to be an amazon customer first. You can Sign Up, create a new Amazon Affiliate Account, and start promoting their products.
