HOW TO ATTAIN MAGICAL SUCCESS THROUGH AMAZON AFFILIATES

10 Excellent Tips for Increasing Your Amazon Affiliate Revenue
- THINK ABOUT GENERATING AFFILIATE-FOCUSED CONTENT: Your focus should be on making the content to focus on affiliate links. For example, if there is festival season around and you want to tell about gift products; think about the contents such as ‘how to win the love you near and dear one during this festive season’ or ‘great gifting ideas’. But it is crucial to remember that too much affiliate links might kill the essence of the content.
- DON’T FORGET TO ADD LINK TO YOUR FAVOURITE POSTS: It’s awesome if your post received 5000 views on the Pinterest, but it is also important to add affiliate links to that post. You might add your Amazon affiliate links of your favourite products to that post to win some bucks along with appreciation.
- CONSIDER PRODUCT LINKS AS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR THE READERS TO EXPLORE MORE INFORMATION: When you are surfing the information about a product; it is very rare that you go to the Amazon page to know about the products. Well, Amazon product page besides helping you to buy products is an excellent place to show details about the products such as specifications, price, pictures, etc. So, remember Amazon is not merely an online store but rather a resourceful place. Hence, use this fact, and instead of linking the products about which you are talking with the company’s website; link them with the Amazon through affiliate links.
- INFLUENCE YOUR READERS DUE TO YOUR POWER AND RECOMMEND THEM YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCTS: It’s quite unlikely that people would ask recommendation from a layman regarding the products. But as a blogger, you are in a position to leave a lasting impact on their consumerism. Your recommendation would be as important for them as would be of a friend. So, it is quite vital to put authenticity in your recommendation and remember your focus should be on the products you love; which would help them believe in what you are saying.
- USE AFFILIATE LINKS AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOUR DAY TO DAY LIFE: As the products are used in our day to day life, it is important to talk about them in your lifestyle posts. For instance, ‘stunning imitation jewellery which helped you to become the centre of attraction of the party’ or ‘how your favourite instant cook dish helped you to surprise the unexpected guests’! There is much more to talk about, but don’t forget to use your recommendations sparingly as if you use a lot of affiliate links; your readers may search independently and may get link blind and get annoyed. So, use them in moderation and create some opportunity for you to earn some amount by linking the products you mention.
- OUT OF THE BOX THINKING: Though the text links might prove to be a lucrative choice, yet here you may have to apply out of the box thinking. How about sidebar widgets to link the products you love? You can also think about creating some pages to show about your favourite products such as ‘Books I read’ or ‘My beauty secrets.’
- DON’T FORGOT TO LINK ALL THE PRODUCTS: Don’t scare to link the products which people might not like to buy online as your affiliate income would not come from linking the products which people buy. It is quite likely that they might click on a link and might like to buy some other products they buy. Hence, your attempt should be to somehow send the reader to Amazon and the rest of the job would be done by Amazon- inviting people to buy endlessly!
- CONSIDER AFFILIATES, AS A COLLECTIVE STRATEGY: The affiliate links which brings some cents for you might prove to be lucky but using only one or two links might defeat the idea of affiliate marketing. So provide a lot of affiliate links either through text post or through sidebar widgets in order to enhance the chance that it would be clicked by the readers.
- REMEMBER TO LINK YOUR RECIPES: In case you are a food blogger and come up with interesting prose on “How I learnt perfect cooking’ or ‘Accidental cooking, which led to inventions’; don’t forget to link up with your secret recipe; as it would be right place to recommend and use affiliate links for the products such as ‘soya chunks’ or ‘secret of my cooking- my cooker’.
- LISTEN TO THE NEEDS OF THE READERS: You have a comment section in your blog. Use it to know more about the users like, their favourite products. For example, when I posted a recipe about cheesy-tangy macaroni, my users asked me about the brand of macron to use for it and believe me, every day two or three users actually bought the macaroni through my Amazon account. So, listen to your readers to guide you.
