Hi everyone this is Agrim from agrimreviews.com. Today I’m going to share a few how to make money with Amazon affiliate marketing. so Amazon has its own affiliate program which can allow you to promote any product on Amazon and earn a commission by promoting it. So Amazon’s affiliate program is called Amazon associates, which is a hundred percent free to join and like I said you can earn a commission from any product. And they have this affiliate program for every single one of Amazon’s marketplaces. So they have one for Amazon.in which is within India. They have one for Amazon co UK if you want to sell and promote products inside the United Kingdom.
And to go and access it just do a Google search for Amazon Associator Amazon affiliate program or just go to amazon.com slash associate. You can promote any product on Amazon and that’s a great thing for affiliate marketing. Now there are ways that you can do this that honestly are not that profitable because there are some cons. I’ll share with you and there’s a way of going about it which is not that effective . I’llshare with you guys how I make money with Amazon affiliate marketing. The money that I make from it is really insignificant compared to other affiliate programs and products that you can promote. I’m actually gonna share with you my computer screen and walk you through how you behind the scenes of Amazon Associates also at the end better ways you can focus on doing affiliate marketing.
Pros and Cons of Amazon’s affiliate program.
PROS– the biggest one, of course, is that you can promote any product which is very cool. Millions of Product and you can promote any single one that you want. so that’s pretty cool because a lot of the companies and the brands might not have their own private affiliate program.
PROS -if you promote a product, let’s say you promote a blender. your link to that the way the Amazon works is that within 24 hours when they click your affiliate link and they if they buy other products besides that one, even if they don’t even buy that blender you link to but they buy someone else’s products and a variety of different things , fill up their shopping cart and they check out and purchase, within 24 hours you actually make the Commission. On all of those products, not just the one you link but any of them that they buy within24 hours. This is a great thing because most people when they go to Amazon they don’t buy just one product right they shop around they add up a few things in their shopping cart and they usually check out and buy a few different products. So you can increase the overall Commission you’re getting.
PROS -I think another very important thing and valuable is the trust that Amazon has. I mean I remember years ago like10 years ago and even beyond that when people selling online. People were very skeptical. They’re like afraid of buying something from someone that they didn’t know. You know Amazon’s changed the landscape from that because so many people are comfortable now buying things online. Amazon has the brand and the reputation and the trust with the consumers that people know. When they’re on Amazon and they’re clicking to buy something they feel comfortable buying from Amazon, they feel they can trust the reviews that Amazon has the credibility. They know Amazon’s got great customer support and they value the customer, they can get a return or a refund or whatever it is so products can typically convert better on.
PROS -Another benefit is one-click.Millions of people already have their credit card in Amazon so when they want to buy the product they don’t have to put in their credit card details again. it’s just the press of a button automatically charges their credit card .So it’s very easy to get sales that way too which is great.
There are other pros but let’s focus on some of the cons
CONS- Amazon will pay typically depending on the product and category and I’ll go through this later. anywhere from 1 to 10percent commission. To be honest guys, I put this more like a con but it could be a pro in some circumstances. it really depends on the product that you’re promoting and the reason why their Commission’s are pretty low is because most products on Amazon physical products there’s overhead and expenses involved .versus a digital product like a course or information product there are not as much expenses involved so they can actually give affiliates more of a commission from that.
CONS– Amazon is a pretty low Commission like I promoted books and I’ll show you my account and some of the income that I make later. but sometimes I promote products and I make like a dollar. it is either you’re going to have to have extremely high volume like tons and thousands of sales of these low ticket, low Commission things for that to really add up. you’ve got to start promoting high ticket products on Amazon to earn a commission- so for example, if you’re promoting books you’re gonna get a low Commission like less than a dollar in most cases. but if you’re promoting a TV, camera equipment maybe a treadmill, jewelry= high ticket items that are over Rs 10000. Well, that one to ten percent can really add up right ten percent of a thousand bucks is a hundred bucks. That’s where the numbers can get a lot bigger and better is by promoting higher ticket products.But I consider that a cons. That’s why I’ll share better ways.
CONS- Another con is the fact that they have a 24-hour cookie so what that means is when someone clicks on the affiliate link. You only get credit for any sales that occur within 24 hours. Clicking on your affiliate link and most affiliate programs out there they usually have that cookie the tracking for 30 days sometimes 90 days. let’s say someone clicks on your link. They add a few items to their shopping cart but they don’t check it out right away, they don’t buy it right away, maybe they buy it a week, after it’s outside at 24 hours so you’re not getting credit for those commissions . in their browser or they change different devices there is a small percent you can lose out on that like 1%Usually. It’s known as leakage that happens with affiliate marketing but for the most part, you’re getting credit if they buy within those30 days or 90 days.
Another con – is sometimes the approval usually require to set up just a website a blog to get approved for their affiliate program. Now those are the main things that I really wanted to express
I’ll walk you through some of the steps and how the affiliate program works. I’ll share with you how much money I make from it. And a few of the strategies of what I do to leverage theAmazon affiliate marketing
Let’s now dive into Amazon’saffiliate program. This is known as Amazon Associates
But first I want to share with you- the Amazon fee schedule. This is the affiliate commission that you can make based on the product category. I did mention that it’s usually anywhere from 1% to 10% so you can see certain categories like Amazon fashion, women’s fashion, men’s fashion, kids- you know you can earn up to 10% commission from that. Furniture home, home-improvement categories, etc 8 %.It’s important to know this because based on the products you’re going to promote.You want to make sure that the Commission’s gonna make sense for you to really promote it.
Another kind of cool thing they have is they also pay you based on a bounty program. If people end up signing up, for example, Amazon Prime video you can earn bounty rate for that. if people sign up for Amazon business you can earn a commission. So you can also make money on the different services that Amazon has available – and they have third-party networks.
I am logged into my Amazon Associates account. I use Amazon Associates only if there’s a product that I might share or mention in my blog or something like that. that I feel like you know I might as well just have an affiliate link – if I’m gonna link to it on Amazon it might as well be an affiliate link so I can at least earn something.
To actually makes money from doing amazon affiliate marketing and that strategy would be promoting high ticket products those that are over $1000 like I said TVs and camera equipment and jewelry.
I’ll just share with you guys behind the scenes of my account here. Far for this month has been 192 items that were shipped. The total earnings that I made from that are $285 so that’s very insignificant as you can imagine out of these items 180 of them were ordered.
I have some high ticket products that I promote that are outside of Amazon its affiliate program that I can earn $500 $1,000 for one sale and you know with that kind of similar conversion rate even a one percent conversion rate would make me significantly more money than just doing the Amazon affiliate program. I kind of want to share that that’s kind of a negative side of it. It’s not anything that you’re gonna live off. I’ve promoted some product many years ago and I still make passive income.
I link to it here people click on it and then if they go ahead and purchase it Within 24 hours. Then I earn the Commissions. Amazon Affiliate Marketing
I have this YouTube video where I share rebounder and the way that I make money from it my affiliate link is right here in the description of this video.
I really make money with Am promoting higher ticket products to more
I do recommend affiliate marketing but its better strategy finding higher ticket products promoting, maybe more digital products, courses, and training that have a higher price point
