How to get started with the Amazon Affiliate Program

By | February 6, 2017

So now you have a rough idea about my history and how I got into hustling and making money online in the first place.

But so far I haven’t given you a single clue about how I do it.


Amazon is the biggest internet retailer

Biggie Smalls - if you don't know now you know

First of all – have you heard of Amazon?

You know the giant behemoth that is basically destroying brick and mortar stores all around the united states.

If you haven’t heard of this 300 billion dollar company, you’ve probably been living under a rock.

Sorry but it’s true.

They started out as a company that focused on selling books online, and are one of the few big companies that survived the dot com crash.

They expanded into selling everything and anything basically and with their Amazon Prime membership

So how do I make money from this you ask

First of all take a look at their affiliate program here and notice the percentages you can earn for each product category.

You want to stay away from any products that pay you less than 4% per sale unless those products cost over $1,000.

Some example big ticket items: refrigerators, big screen tvs, computers, laptops, the list goes on and on.

Pick a category you want to focus on for this example purpose and I’ll go more into detail later on picking an optimal category, but for now just have an example in mind.

Practice building a website

It will take multiple attempts before you get a good looking website going, so before your ready for the big leagues just jump in and build a website.

Don’t worry about it selling anything yet, you just want to prove you can do it.

One step at a time.

First things first, pick a theme.

One that I personally like because inktheme’s design.

You can experiment on your own but if you want a good amazon affiliate wordpress theme to start with, check out their live preview and decide.

Setting up a WordPress site is so ridiculously easy that I am thinking to just say “google how to setup a WordPress site” and let you figure it out on your own.

You’ll have to learn things on your own anyway.

Or maybe I’ll change my mind and decide to write it out for you.

If you really want to know, leave me a comment to inspire me, or questions you have after googling it.
