Affiliate marketing is an effective strategy for driving growth, due to the fact that it pays all of the participants involved. It not only provides an easy way of making revenue for the online marketer (who can make a lot of income even while asleep), but it is also known to improve sales for already successful products. 

One company that has successfully leveraged this strategy is Amazon.  In this article, we take a look at how to become an Amazon associate to easily boost income earned from your website or blog. 

The Amazon Affiliate Program

The ultimate goal of anyone who wishes to monetize their website or blog is to be an Amazon Affiliate marketer, which offers a great deal of benefits to both partners and participants. 

How Does it Work?

Amazon associates make money through commissions, which they receive when sales are made via links on their websites. It’s straightforward. Marketers create attractive Amazon product links and promote them on their blogs and sites, thereby drawing sales to Amazon and earning commission for each sale. 

As a result, whenever a purchase is made through a link on that website, the marketer makes money. By promoting goods and attracting prospective buyers, Amazon associates can make an unlimited amount of commission. The more goods that are sold via the marketer’s links, the more money is made. 

It’s a fantastic way of making money as marketers can wake up to hundreds of dollars made overnight from simply attracting customers to products on Amazon.

How to Become an Amazon Associate

You want to become an Amazon Associate? Great choice. All you have to do is sign up on the Amazon Associates homepage. 

Navigate the page and supply all the relevant information, including

  • your name
  • your address
  • your phone number
  • your account information
  • your website addresses
  • the full name of your website

Also, you would need to supply information about how you wish to drive traffic to your site, the products you want to market, and your preferred payment method.

The procedure is seamless, and once you’re successful, you will be redirected to your dashboard, which contains your personal information, tracks your progress as an Amazon Associate, and, more importantly, from where you can create links that can lead to sales.

Creating links is also relatively straightforward. You can simply generate the links using the Amazon Associates SiteStripe. This can be done from the product page. You can also select product links from your Amazon Associate account when you log in.

How Much Money Can I Make as an Amazon Associate?

There are no limits to how much money an Amazon Associate can make and your money is deposited directly into your account. It’s that easy.

However, it is important to stress that you’ll need to update your strategy, improve your website visibility constantly, and carve out a niche where you can compete favorably at the very top level. That’s because you’ll be competing with those who are ready to give it their all. And that’s the least you should offer.
