Just a reminder : if you have ANY questions about the next steps, please do not hesitate to leave a comment, I’d be pleased to answer you and help you make this work. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Find Yourself a Niche


How To Make Money With Amazon Associate Program - Find A Niche

First thing first, before thinking of making any money, you must choose a niche which you are interested in AND that Amazon sells products since the subject here is related to Amazon. You don’t absolutely need to know everything about this niche, but you need an interest otherwise you won’t have fun doing the next steps. Now how can I choose this niche you must think, let me explain you.

It can be about anything just remember that you need to be interested about this niche. Here are some ideas that can guide you on what a niche is about :

  • Sports (hockey, football, swimming, tennis, etc.);
  • Decoration (house, bedroom, patio, etc.);
  • Video Games (consoles, particular games, etc.);
  • Cooking trick;
  • Clothes;
  • Etc.

It can literally be about whatever you want. The examples I gave you are more of categories you can relate to but when choosing a niche, it is better to choose a more specific subject. Here are some examples :

  • Hockey jackets of any team;
  • Tennis equipment;
  • Cooking trick for vegan;
  • Clothes for men/women/kids;
  • Etc.

Why is it preferable to choose a specific niche? Because if your niche is too large, yes you’ll probably reach more people but that doesn’t mean they will be interested in what you decided to talk about. You want people who are interested in your niche so they will become more profitable.

Now it’s time for you to choose your niche! Do not put pressure on yourself, just choose something that you particularly love and that you would like to talk about (it will be more easy for the next steps).

2. Create An Amazing and Captivating Website


How To Make Money With Amazon Associate Program - Create A Website

Now that you have chosen your niche, you are ready for the second step which is creating a website! Why do you need a website? Because you need a platform to promote Amazon products and since Amazon works online, you better do it online too. Building a website can be hard sometimes but you’ll see it is very fun, even more fun if you choose a niche you love.

There are different ways that you can create your website and the easiest way is when you have tutorial explaining you how to do it, mostly when you have never done one before. You can find various companies on the web that allow you to create website such as Wix, WordPress, Wealthy Affiliate, etc. But they don’t all have the tutorial possibility.

For example, Wealthy Affiliate has tons and tons of tutorial on how creating and building your website, it is very user-friendly. PLUS, it is FREE for the first lesson and you can create TWO websites.

What should we find on your website?

Since your goal is to promote Amazon products, the #1 thing we should find is proper reviews about various products sold on Amazon. It is the next step so I won’t develop about it here.

We should find an About Me page, explaining who you are and why you decided to create this website. You must not say it is to ”make money” because what you want is to build trust with your visitors.

We could find a Contact page too so that your visitors can contact you if they have any questions or issues. In fact, there are a lot of different pages you can add to your website.

Design your website as you want!

Another thing you’ll have to do with your website is to design it so that it looks good and captivating. An important factor is that it stays relevant to your niche. The goal is to have new visitors but also to have these visitors coming back. With a nice looking and easy going website, your visitors will surely come back.

The platform you will choose to create your website will give you the opportunity to customize it like you want probably depending on the theme you have chosen. There are millions of possibilities on how you can design your website so just be creative, there is no wrong design. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. Write Well Explained Reviews


How To Make Money With Amazon Associate Program - Write Reviews

Like I explained it earlier, one of the most important thing about your website is your content. You will not attract visitor if you don’t have great content. Starting a website can seem hard but the hardest is to tell ourselves we can do it and actually do it.

So where to start, right? Now that you have chosen your niche, you can choose a product you would like to make a review about. It can be literally anything relevant to your niche. You can make a good or a bad review, it’s not important. What is important though is the content you will put in your review.

What you can do for your various reviews is to create a pattern you will repeat in each of them, consistency is really important. What I mean by a pattern is it can look like this :

  • Information on the selected product;
  • Pros and Cons;
  • What you like/don’t like about this product;
  • The advantages of having this product;
  • Your opinion.

This is only an example, there can be different pattern you can choose to add to your style. It is not an obligation but it can be a good example of consistency and your visitors will appreciate it.

Another very important thing you must consider when writing your review is to not write it thinking about money. The point is your visitor must not feel like you’re selling him/her a product. What you want to share in your review is help. You want to help your visitors with your review. The reason they came across your review is probably because they were looking for an answer. Your job is to give them this answer so they buy the product after.

4. Share Amazon Products


How To Make Money With Amazon Associate Program - Share Amazon Products

Next and final step : Share the chosen product!

Now how can you share the product without being too aggressive for your visitors? They must find the link to buy it if they are convinced after reading your review but you must not include too many links because they’ll find your review spamming and they will want to quit, that is not what we want.

There are easy ways on how you can share the link who brings them to the product :

  • Put the link at the beginning in the information of the product (You could write : Where to find it : #link)
  • Every relevant images that are in your review can have the link so when they click on the image they are redirected to the product on Amazon;
  • You can put it at some strategic places throughout your review so that they can click on it through their reading.

This is some examples but just remember you must not become spammy and just show them the product is easily available.

You must think where do I get the links?

You must create an Associate Account with Amazon (if you choose .com it will only work for .com, same for .ca or .uk, etc.). When your account is created, you have access to every product sell by Amazon and you can have an affiliate link for each of them.

Not that hard, hein? Put a little work in and it’s completely possible!

Make Money!


How To Make Money With Amazon Associate Program - Make Some Money

So yeah, that’s basically it! If you apply these four easy steps, there are no reasons you don’t make money out of it. What you need to have is PATIENCE. Don’t hurry. Take your time to create good reviews and a nice website that visitors will want to return.

To make money, people must trust your reviews and you so if you hurry writing poor reviews, people will not come back and won’t buy products from your website.

But now that you have a good base with How To Make Money With Amazon, sky is the limit! Do not stop yourself and believe in you, everything is possible when you believe in what you are capable of.

  1. Thanks Audrey for breaking this down into basic achievable steps – I have come across a lot of information out there and it is so overwhelming I couldn’t imagine where to begin. I do agree Patience is going to be required.

    1. Definitely patience is required but nothing is impossible. Iโ€™m glad you found it helpful, my main objective is that it is clear, precise and easily understandable. Thank you for sharing Chrissie!

  2. This sounds like a very easy way to make money, with just a few steps required to set it up. I like the sound of the training program at Wealthy Affiliate which is free to join. Will I need to pay for the membership later on? and is it easy to get accepted as an affiliate at Amazon? Thanks

    1. Hi Helen, to answer your questions, yes there is a membership at Wealthy Affiliate after the free 7 days which is called the Premium membership for 49$/month. I encourage you to read my review about Wealthy Affiliate to understand better what it has to offer. For Amazon, in fact they give you a 3 months as โ€œtestโ€ to sell their products and once youโ€™ve proved that your website is worth it, you can continue selling their products. Hope it helped!

  3. Thank you Audrey, this was a great read for me as I’m trying to learn about Amazon Affiliate Marketing and really had no idea where to start.
    Cheers
    Michael

  4. Yes I’ve dreamed of becoming an Amazon Associate for many years now. This 4 Easy Step post made me want to find out more.
    Your graph of Amazons growth from $6.92 in 2004 to $232.89 billion in 2018 is impressive and astounding !
    Your examples of how to choice a specific niche are helpful. The great advice you’ve given here, in deciding on a product to sell, as an Amazon Associate, is that, I must be interested in it, because the writing of product Reviews on my chosen niche, was the way I was going to attract attention.
    I was wondering how I was going to create an amazing website. Under ‘Where Do I Start’ you let me find the Wealthy affiliate platform. The WA platform is the one I chose to create my Amazon Associate program on.

  5. I use to do affiliate marketing over 6 years ago and I totally forgot about Amazon Affiliate! I haven’t used it in a long time. Although I didn’t make any money at the time, I just signed up for fun. Now that I have a mortgage and a newborn, I would love to make some money while I’m home with the baby. While I was working, I was a preschool teacher and the main concern the teachers and directors of daycares and preschools were (other than the wellbeing of the children) was how to pay for school supplies so that the children could have an enriching curriculum. My goal is to help teachers afford their materials. And I bought a lot of supplies from Amazon so I can start with my past orders and write reviews. Thank you for the reminder!
