I have been an affiliate marketer now for 7 years! I actually discovered it on this very forum! Thank you by the way! I have mostly done digital products and have since created my own digital products and had the belief that being an affiliate for Amazon was pointless because the commission percentage is lower. Well my mind has been changed over the last couple of years. I have a new partner at Pajama Affiliates and she has been teaching me how to capitalize as an Amazon Affiliate! I did not know what I did not know. Can you make money as an Amazon Affiliate? Well here is a screenshot of my partner, Lesley's orders as of December 13th. For starters Amazon is a retail giant. Your only job as an affiliate marketer for Amazon is to get them there. Amazon does the rest for you. Someone can click on your link for one item and end up on a big shopping spree. 4th quarter at Amazon is exciting! How does she make so much money affiliate marketing for Amazon! 1. She has chosen her niche wisely. 2. She has lots of good relevant content on her sites. No shabby posts. All her posts and images are original and she puts in a lot of time into each and every one. 3. She keeps rinsing and repeating! She never gave up! 4. She knows her keywords and SEO. She doesn't just shoot in the dark. 5. She utilizes social media to her advantage. Google plus, pinterest, twitter and Facebook. 6.. She has strong calls to action on her blog posts! I have invited Lesley to join this forum so if you have ever wanted to learn how to cash in as an affiliate marketer, she is your girl. I just started with Amazon and I too am starting to get results. It's a brand new stream of income for me and I am excited to start!
