What Is An Amazon Affiliate?

Have you ever wondered what Amazon Affiliate websites are? Many successful affiliate marketers have a basic 2-page website and an email marketing system that does their affiliate promotions on autopilot to make passive income One page is a landing page that promotes a lead magnet to entice people to subscribe the email.
No Guarantees: On the flip side, if your affiliate store doesn't diversify the number of brands it promotes, your income could take a drastic hit if your main merchant removes you due to Affiliate Nexus Tax law or chooses to close down their affiliate program.

Although many blogs and small businesses which simply review products don't intentionally collect personal data of users (for example, by asking them to sign up for an account), they still actually collect privacy-related information in the background.
Secondly, everything you sell” counts—even though I link only to my book(s) now (and the majority of my Amazon affiliate sales have been my books), I've received amazon affiliate blog commission for sales ranging from a Self Inking Rubber Stamp to a Garden Gargoyle Sculpture, simply because someone bought these after clicking on my link.

The program is free to join and rewards affiliates (called associates”) for driving traffic and purchases on The program has long been one of the most generous affiliate programs on the web, as it pays a commission to affiliates on the entire basket of goods a customer purchases within 24 hours of coming to from the affiliate's site.
Jeff Rizzo says the easiest posts to incorporate affiliate links are best-of and roundup lists, like the ‘5 Best Water Bottles for Hiking.' These lists allow bloggers to incorporate numerous product links into a single post and thereby have more opportunities for click-throughs.
There are other options that pay higher commissions (although not so many for the type of products Amazon sells), you can promote higher value products and there are programs that have longer cookies… but there are also some things I like about Amazon.
