If you have a website or blog and want to monetize it, the Amazon Associates program is a good way to add affiliate money making opportunities. With this program, you can add links to any item on Amazon’s site to your website and get commission when someone clicks the link or makes a purchase. While Amazon’s commission structure is relatively low, the program offers many advantages and is very easy to use. You can create an aStore, which is an individual site showing the Amazon products that you choose to sell. You can let Amazon suggest products and include a link on your blog. You can also add individual products to your site for a customized look. While earning substantial income will take time, work and patience, it’s worth checking out the program and learning how to become an Amazon Associate.
When you sign up to a company to become an affiliate marketer, and you know that you are going to use that link on your youtube video, ensure you ask them to provide you with a shorter link that you can use.

Nicely written and so helpful info. Having too much advertisement in a site is so painful for visitor cause it makes the site look cheaper. Instead, If one can limit the number of one’s advertisement and have some affiliation it would be way cool and wouldn’t be so harsh for the visitors . You have shared some significant point for affiliate marketing . Thanks for sharing
Chris. Love this article as I’ve used amazon and been amazed myself at the potential. One thing though. With the latest google panda update they have targeted links and thin content…has this affected your sites at all? I really want to starta few sites based off amazon but am a little hesitant since I’m not sure what google will think 🙂
In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.

First, you need to sign up for an affiliate program. After signing up you will get an affiliate link or a special URL that contains the Username or ID of the affiliate. You can then use this link whenever you mention the advertiser in your website.
