The name is a mark by itself and you can never miss it unless you still be actually living in the Amazon forests.
For affiliate marketers, Amazon Associates comes as their first love and the one that many have earned a lot and also have learned a lot.
The ease of set up, the elegance of reporting and the quickness of money earning make that program the best and the first option for affiliate marketers when they start as beginners.
Although it may seem to be a non profitable affiliate program for some, many professional marketers rely on it as their main source of income.
So why some marketers hate Amazon Associates?
Due to relatively small commission(sometime 4%), strict rules and conditions and you might find yourself out of the program without any cent. I myself have made a lot of money from this program and have been using it for years. Although I've tried many other affiliate programs from other retailers and stores, but I still have that hidden love for Amazon Associates Program.
So let's take a look at that program.
First, you need to have an Amazon Account.
You can have your customer account at Amazon at first and then apply for the affiliate program.
So if you don't already have an account, start by making one.
create amazon account or just login
Then scroll down to the bottom of the main page and click "Become an Affiliate"
Then press Join "Now for Free" button.
Then create affiliate account
You'll fill some information about address and about your website.
Then you can choose the payment method (Check, Wire Transfer or Amazon Gift Card)
Then fill in your Tax information or you can choose to complete that information later.
Congratulations, you are now an Amazon Affiliate.
You have the right and the full power to make referrals and affiliate links in your blog or website, once someone clicks one of your links and then buys anything within 24 hours of that click, you can get commission of that purchase.
This can be as much as 4 - 10% of that purchase. You can be referring something like a 10$ book and that guy who clicks your link later buys a 1000$ DJI Mavic Quadcopter. Then as a minimum you can get 40$ from this purchase.
Pretty awesome, right ?
There is something called Amazon Bounty program that where you can get fixed commission ranging from 2 to 10$ depending on the type of the bounty when someone make a certain subscription in one of Amazon services.
And many of these services are free.
For example, I can get 3$ when you read any book on Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader free service to read any Kindle book even if that book is totally free. You can try it yourself.
You just click that link and I get the three Dollars. That simple.
Another bounty is the Amazon Audible Bounty.
Amazon Audible is a website for selling audio
books. I can get 5$ if you try Audible for free through my link. And you can get one free month of Audible and any two audio books for free. You can unsubscribe any time during that one month.
And if you make a golden membership in Audible, I get 10$.
Amazon Baby registry.
Amazon Wedding registry.
All are free services that you can benefit and I'll get the bounty if you just subscribe in this service.
You can also join Amazon Associates program and try the bounty program yourself.
I hope you have enjoyed that post and you gained some useful information from it.
