Affiliate marketing?

Firstly, Affiliate marketing is the process of earning income every time you promote some products or services. If you generate a sale for the company, you get paid.

The Amazon affiliate program, also called “Amazon Associates” is an easy way to monetize your website or blog. It’s completely free to join and easy to use. It provides us the convenience of referring potential customers to a trusted site where they can immediately purchase products you advertise and when they do, you could earn between a 1% & 10% in referral fees. Simply sign up, receive immediate approval, and place Amazon affiliate links on your site. When someone makes an Amazon purchase via one of your links, you get the commission. It is that simple.

  1. I have registered for Amazon’s Affiliate Marketing Program, but have never actively pursued it. Will work on it. Thanks for the reminder. According to your experience, which categories of products give better returns?

    • Thanks for stopping by Shilpa. It’s important that you select a category because you have to write about it, but speaking of what I’ve experienced so far, I would say home appliances and accessories are the thing to go for now.

    • Surely Harjeet. It’s quite a task
      Firstly, you need to sign up for affiliate marketing with amazon, if you click on the Amazon associate picture, you will be redirected to the right page.
      Once you’ve signed up in the Amazon associates dashboard you will be able to make your own product specific or page specific links. You need to copy these links and paste them on your blog or posts.
      That’s in simple terms.
      If you need more help in the process please don’t hesitate.
