how to make money on amazon

What’s up marketers in problem solvers, Rod checking in. Today we’re going to talk about how to make money with Amazon. I’m going to give you guys a step-by-step on how I actually got started. We always give you a general overview on each topic but when you want more detailed information check out my free 7th step freelance guide below.

Amazon is an e-commerce site where you can basically buy anything and everything online. If you think you have to have a product to actually make money on Amazon, think again. You don’t need to sell any product directly but what you can do is make money as an affiliate. That’s where I’m going with this article. That’s where I focus my efforts on this site, digital marketing. I want to put you guys in a position where you can still build a brand with Amazon and make money without having a product necessarily getting in the way of the terms and conditions at Amazon.

Amazon is in the businesses of making money for Amazon. They are only promoting Amazon branding. You need to know how to navigate this whole Amazon thing. If you try to insert your brand in Amazon and they will deactivate your account pretty fast. There are ways that you could promote your brand and really make money without necessarily having to do all the hard work to get started and affiliate marketing is the way to go.

Promote Affiliates Link on Niche WordPress Site

I got four points I want to cover today so let’s get started. I am a huge proponent of setting up a Words Press authority site in a tight niche. It could be a niche site, it could be as an authority site, it could be a local site, regardless of what kind of site it is as long as it’s branded. It could be a product or service and you can make money on Amazon via affiliate marketing.

Amazon has millions of products. Amazon has products that you ever see in a brick-and-mortar store. You can actually buy pretty much anything on Amazon. Obviously, it’s got to be legal and it’s got to fit the terms of services. Let me give you an example. If I create a photography website, I’m going to be teaching you a lot about photography equipment. How to set up your equipment, lighting, background, the camera, everything. All the equipment I’m telling you about, I provide my affiliate link to Amazon for that piece of equipment. You can promote Canon you can promote pretty much anything and everything in this way and make money from it. Obviously, the commission is based on what you promote but the idea is the same, you can make money without necessarily selling the camera or lighting. I don’t have to have any knowledge of how to sell that stuff. I could just promote their products and they’ll give me a piece of the pie. The advantage of this vs selling your products directly is when you send traffic to Amazon it doesn’t matter what they buy you still make a commission whereas if you are only selling products if they don’t buy your particular product then you don’t make a sale.

Amazon is not the only place that does this JVzoo ClickBank, Walmart, Target, all the retailers have affiliate programs. Today we’re only going to focus on Amazon. But if you have a specific of affiliate program you want me to talk about, put a request in the comments section below and I’ll cover it for you guys in another article.

So go ahead and set up your niche authority WordPress website, local site whatever a kind of website you have depending on the specific content your focusing. But do not be too general, a niche site is going to resonate much more with your audience and in the long run, you’re going to make more money.

Promote Affiliates Link on YouTube Channel

This is the best way to make money on Amazon and the concept is the same for a YouTube channel. As you talk about a specific product you put links to that product in the description box or in the overlay cards and say go check out that camera or lighting equipment and you can make money that way too.

Promote Amazon Affiliates Link on Email List

An email list is another way you guy’s can make money with affiliate marketing. You send out a ton of emails to your subscribers, tell them to go to your website and then they click on Amazon affiliate links that way. But the end result is the same. you can get to make money on Amazon via your email list.

Indirect promotion via social media channel

Last but not least social media platforms. I’m kind of lukewarm on Facebook. Depending on what area of Facebook, if you’re working with pay to advertise, it’s going to be hard to work with affiliate links on Facebook. I don’t want you to go that route but what I want you to do is build your email list with YouTube and then you can promote affiliate marketing products via your email list this way, you get the best of both worlds. You can get traffic to your site from your social media accounts. Or you can get traffic to your youtube video from your social media accounts. Forums work that way too.

The main idea is to focus on ways that you can build your brand, your relationship with customers directly on your website first. Then monetize it with Amazon affiliate marketing.
