What is Amazon Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is where you sell someone else’s product and take a commission in that process. So for example, if you have a website and if you send someone to Amazon from your website, when that guy/girl buys something from Amazon, you get a commission.

That’s Amazon Affiliate Marketing for you. Simple, isn’t it?

There’s a reason that why a lot of marketers are into Amazon Affiliate Program rather being someplace else. Here are some of the prime benefits:

  • Amazon is a trusted website. As soon as you send someone to Amazon, you are done! There’s a high chance that the traffic will end up buying something as Amazon is so good with conversions.
  • You don’t have to worry about getting paid as Amazon is a big brand. There are a lot of affiliate websites that pay high commissions but are not legit and you don’t know whether you will be paid the next month or not. You don’t have that problem with Amazon.
  • There are thousands of products on Amazon on different categories. You would want to work on something that you like, right? Amazon gives you that opportunity.

Let’s also talk about the negatives of Amazon Affiliate marketing so that we are on a neutral ground.

  • Amazon pays the lowest in terms of commission. Their commission varies from 2%-10% in general.
  • Amazon has a lot of rules and regulations. You have to be very careful if you want to sustain with their affiliate program in the long run.

Having said all that, it is still one of the finest affiliate programs to jump in. There will always be pros and cons of everything. You just have to take that calculative risk.

So the idea is very simple. When you send someone on Amazon from your website and he/she buys a video game console worth $400, you get 1% of that amount which is $4. Again, if another person buys a digital video game worth $100, you get 10% of that amount which is $10.

You get the idea, right?

Let’s assume you have a website that has around 500 visitors a day. That’s not tough. We will get into the details later on.

Now, 500 visitors a day means 15,000 visitors a month, right? Let’s assume 20% of this people go to Amazon from your website. That is 3000 people, right?

Now, among those 3000, let’s again assume that 500 people buy something on Amazon and each purchase worth $50.

That’s around $25000. Now depending on what they are buying, your income will vary as the commissions are different for different categories. On average, you will get around 6% probably.

That makes your monthly income $1500 from one single website.

Let’s have 10 websites like this one! Boom!

You get to $15000 a month.

In fact, you don’t have to have 10 other websites. You can have 10 other pages of that same website ranking for different keywords. That will do the job too.

Getting the idea? Cool!

I am not trying to be a math guru here. I know 100s of affiliate marketers who do this and earn a lot more than that amount. They are not super intelligent; they are not different than you. They just work hard! If you promise to do the same, you will be able to achieve that figure and go beyond within next 4 months, I promise.
