It was the 90’s when Amazon first came into being, and that was with selling books. Now Amazon has become a world-leading and drop-shipping site i.e., Amazon doesn’t have a large inventory to store all their variety products.
Buyers simply choose and order their product online and Amazon directly delivers it from the manufacturer or retailer. Amazon has really been a trusted name in online retail that has served and won the faith of around 300 million people till date.
But apart from being just an online buying and selling site there is more to make out of Amazon. Amazon has an amazing affiliate program called Amazon Associates, it’s a way to earn passive income in the form of commissions. Now, there’s no rocket science in signing up for the Amazon Associate Programme. All you need to have is a website of your own. To get started Amazon will first check and approve your site and then you can put links anywhere on your site. Amazon has all the tools and widgets to help you generate sales. Pretty easy, isn’t it?
Obviously now you would like to know about the commission rates. Well, it varies. It may start with 3% to 4%. Of course, it will increase, that depends on the number of items you are referring on site.
Let me tell you about the best part I feel about the Amazon Associate programme. Suppose someone goes to the Amazon site through a link on your site and purchases an item. Say, a good handbag or a mobile phone. Depending on the commission you earn your share, just because that person entered Amazon’s website through a link placed on your site.
As a blogger I can give you a small tip and I follow that myself also. Whenever you plan to purchase anything on Amazon, try to reach their site through anyone’s affiliate link. Well, it helps another blogger to earn a bit, right? Won’t you feel more than happy if someone uses your affiliate link to make a purchase on Amazon? If you directly hit the site of Amazon and buy something, Amazon alone takes the whole profit. Yes, there is nothing wrong in it. But doing it through somebody else’s link will help the person, and it won’t cost you anything extra. Amazon is always pleased to pay you your commission. They count it as their advertising cost. So, start today and keep earning.
When talking about Amazon I would love to talk about how you can shop from it. On average I have seen people buying and ordering online those products which you generally don’t find at actual stores. Some of my friends do it because it’s easy, they don’t have to go out and spend time after it.If you feel sharing your credit card number with Amazon could create problem, then don’t worry, I have been doing this for years.
Now that you learned how to make real money online, so wishing you all happy shopping and great earning. Hope you find this post useful.
