Make Money with the Amazon Influencer Program

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info. This video was first published on my YouTube channel; you can subscribe to my channel here http://bit.ly/1BuKsoM .

Amazon Influencer Program

The Amazon Influencer Program is one of the more straightforward ways of making money online based on Affiliate Marketing. It is a method that would be accurately described as intermediate level rather than beginner. This is because you will need to have built an audience on at least one Social Media platform to be accepted into the Amazon Influencer Program. The full list of requirements is here. 

How Does it Work?

The Amazon Influencer Program is an extension of the Amazon Affiliates Program. The Amazon Affiliates Program is virtually open to all; once accepted, into the program, affiliates are able to promote Amazon products via affiliate links and earn a commission when purchases are made within 24 hours of their links being clicked.

The Amazon Influencer Program has two key differences from the Affiliates Program. First of all, you need to meet more stringent criteria before you are accepted, you must have a Social Media audience. Secondly, instead of promoting lots of different affiliate links Amazon gives you your own Amazon Shop Page to send your audience to.

Purchases that follow clicks on your dedicated Influencer page earn you commissions ranging from 1-10% dependent on the product category.

In the video, I demonstrate my Amazon Shop Page and explain how to take the opportunity presented to you by Amazon.

Next Steps

Does the idea of having a Amazon Influencer page appeal to you? Are you already part of the Amazon Affiliates Program? Let me know in the comments section below. Also, get in touch if you would like my help. My email address is mike@learnmoney.io

Affiliate Marketing

If you have read this post, Top 3 High Paying Affiliate Programs or this one, How to Monetize Twitter with Affiliate Marketing  you’ll know that I believe that Affiliate Marketing is an open and accessible way for regular people to make side income without drastic changes to their lifestyle. The challenge with Affiliate Marketing is to create a truly systematic approach; simply spraying your affiliate links via your Social Media channels will not work, neither will just embedding your links into your website,  if you have one.

Michelle Schroeder-Gardner

Last year, I was searching for a comprehensive course that outlined a systematic approach to Affiliate Marketing when I found the Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course from Michelle Schroeder-Gardner.

Who is Michelle Schroeder-Gardner?  Michelle is now a millionaire blogger but when she started her blog, Making Sense of Cents in 2011, she did so to track her own personal finance journey.

Her primary objective was to pay off $40,000 of student loan debt. She went onto achieve that and so much more;  Michelle has moved from a position where she had a negative net worth to financial abundance and Affiliate Marketing is one of the activities that helped her make that transition.

The Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course

Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing is the title of Michelle Schroeder-Gardner’s course.

Michelle now earns over $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing, and she shares all of my best tips in this course.

In this course, there are 6 modules, over 30 lessons, over 20 worksheets, bonuses and an extremely helpful exclusive Facebook group. The course content answers the following questions:

  • What affiliate marketing is and how it works
  • Why affiliate marketing is great
  • The exact steps she’s taken to earn over $300,000 from a single blog post
  • Picking the right affiliate products to promote
  • Increasing conversions
  • How to build trust and not lose followers
  • Required disclosures that you need to know about

I have given my comprehensive review of Michelle’s course in this video.  This video will be of interest to Affiliate Marketing practitioners, B2B marketing managers, Content Marketing professionals, Social Media Managers, business owners, and anyone interested in making money online with Affiliate Marketing. Please let me know your thoughts below when you’ve had time to watch it.

Affiliate marketing links and banners take time to set up but can prove to be very lucrative in the long run. It makes sense to become an affiliate for programs that drive the best return on investment, in most cases these are the high paying affiliate programs.

Affiliate Programs

There are hundreds of affiliate programs that you can join, it is possible to approach some potential affiliate partners direct and many more can be accessed via an affiliate marketplace. ShareAsale is an example of an affiliate marketplace with over 4500 merchants. After joining ShareASale, it is easy to apply for the the affiliate programs of those merchants; many categories of products and services are represented on the platform.

Is Affiliate Marketing Easy to do?

This post may contain affiliate links please read our disclosure for more info.

Affiliate Marketing is the process of earning commission by promoting a company’s good or services. In most cases, this commission is earned when a web visitor is sent from one website through to a retailer’s website and goes onto to make a purchase.

For example, if you are an affiliate partner for Amazon and one of your web visitors clicks through to to make a purchase via your promotional link, you will receive a commission. It is not essential that you have a website; it is possible to  achieve the same by posting your links via Social Media, Having said that, if you want to take a more structured approach to Affiliate Marketing, creating a website will help you do this.

Affiliate marketing can boost your household income if you can master it and for that reason it is worth considering.

I answered a question on Quora related to Affiliate Marketing that I have chosen to share here too.

Liberty,

Thanks for the question.

If you are thinking about affiliate marketing for your blog, here are some considerations for you.

Affiliate Marketing Considerations

Time

Yes, you could get affiliate income in a few weeks but if you want to be realistic you should allow about a year to create significant income. On reading this, most people will no doubt click away. The article I have linked to below is one you should read.

How Long Affiliate Marketing Takes – Affiliate Marketer Training

Choice of Affiliates

Evaluate your niche and pick only the appropriate affiliates for your audience (assuming that you have built an audience for your blog). Don’t just sign up for Bluehost because the commission is quite good and you read that Pat Flynn and Michelle Schroeder-Gardner earn $50,000 per month from Bluehost. Those guys have a massive audience full of newbies. Maybe your audience isn’t people getting started earning money online. There are some great affiliate programs and many of them are not as well known as Bluehost and Amazon.

Be Prepared to Earn Nothing Per Month

For every blogger proclaiming that they earned $15,000 per month from Affiliate marketing there are many more who earned nothing. That is the reality that creators of Affiliate marketing courses do not always tell you. My experience has been in the middle… sporadic earnings but no consistent income. Nice bonuses here and there but not predictable.

Evaluate Your Affiliates and Dump Poor Performers

Even affiliate programs that are strategically aligned with your blog’s purpose and vision might not work with your audience. If that is the case, after testing for a few months, dump that affiliate and replace it with a new one.

Don’t Sign Up To Too Many Affiliate Programs

Avoid signing up to too many programs. You will need to keep track of them and assess click and conversion rates; signing up to 20 programs is not what I would recommend. Think quality over quantity.

I could probably write pages about this topic but I will end it here. I hope my list of considerations/ danger signs has been useful to you.

Good luck!
