The Secret Affiliate Marketing Amazon Method: The Amazon
Success Principies -- Part 2
part one, I talked about reasons why you want to consider selling and marketing Amazon products over digital
products, in this final article installment, I'm going to reveal a very simple plan to take advantage of the Amazon
system in a LEGAL way to make you money.
First, you need a good
product to promote. Ideally, you want to stick with high-ticket products like vacuum cleaners or designer shoes.
Stick with the "Over $100" rule. The only time you want to sell products LESS than $100 is to boost commission
percentage from 4% to 6.5%. Sell 20 "Under $100" items fast for the bigger commission
Second, go through Amazons
database and find a product to sell that is popular and has at LEAST 5 more similar products to promote.
Again, stick with the "Over $100" rule, has OVER 10+ reviews (perfect indicator, it's a good
seller), and has a rating above 3 stars.
Third, Be sure your product
is being searched on Google. Take the name of the product you want to market and run it through Google’s Adwords
tool. If the product gets 4 - 5,000 searches a month write an article for it.
Fourth, write at least 5
articles by yourself or outsource it. Take one article and post it on a WordPress self-hosted blog and let the
rest drip feed over the period of one month.
Towards the end of the article, you want to put something like:
give product xxxx a 4 out of 5 stars and highly recommend your xxxx through this link
Fifth, get your main website
indexed using OnlyWire to speed up the process (or outsource it).
Sixth, slowly build links to
Don't get overzealous and follow harmful advice like "build links FAST". This can lead to your
Amazon page being blacklisted and generating little if any traffic. A few link-building sources you can use are
social bookmarks, blog comments, and profile packets.
Seventh, when you're up and
running and making money, focus on what's profitable and discard what's not. It's obvious, but it's so easy to
think every niche works the same for every audience.
Duplicate the winners and improve on the winners. Forget about re-inventing the wheel of straying
too far outside of what you know is profitable for you. If you don't know anything about medical supplies or how
to market it, don't build an Amazon website about it.
