How to make sales as an Amazon Affiliate.
Whether you’re a new Amazon affiliate or you’re just looking for ways to make more affiliate sales, there are lots of tips and tricks that you can implement into your affiliate marketing strategy to increase your income.
The first step to being a successful Amazon affiliate is choosing the right products to promote.
Whilst you might be tempted to promote anything and everything, it’s highly unlikely that this will work for you!
Here are a few products that are actually going to bring you sales:
- Products that you have bought/used and loved
- Products that you know your audience NEEDS
- Products that are in the price range of your readers
Want to learn more about picking the right products? Laura covers this in great detail in her eBook: How to Make Money as an Amazon Associate.
How to add affiliate links to your blog
There are lots of ways that you can add your Amazon affiliate links to your blog.
The easiest way to add links is to include contextual links. These are products that you mention in passing because they are relevant to what you’re talking about, but they are not necessarily the “star of the show”.
For example, if you’re writing a post about your newly found love of running (that might just be me), you might mention your new Fitbit watch that tracks your time, distance and heart rate while exercising and keeps you motivated to run each and every morning. So you would add a link to that Fitbit watch when you mention it, and that’s it.
Another really popular way of including links on your blog is to write product reviews. Ideally, it needs to reflect your experience with that product, meaning that you use it yourself, with a focus on the benefits you get from it personally.
Note: It’s against Amazon’s terms to use reviews left by buyers on their site, it must be an original review by you.
And last but not least, you can create gift guides or product round-up posts (ex: 10 Kitchen Storage Essentials That are too Pretty to Hide or The Ultimate Gift Guide For A Baby Shower) to showcase multiple Amazon products in one post.
For more information on making product reviews and contextual links work for you, plus additional ways to include links on your blog, check out Laura’s eBook today!
