I’ve had an Amazon Associates account set up for a couple of years now but have never earned a lot with it. Lately, I’ve become more interested in affiliate marketing as a source of passive income so I grabbed this book and a couple of other resources. This guide is one of my favorites. Advice from beginning to end on the best ways to make more affiliate money. I plan to put these strategies into practice immediately.
Members of the marketing industry are recommending that “affiliate marketing” be substituted with an alternative name.[40] Affiliate marketing is often confused with either network marketing or multi-level marketing. Performance marketing is a common alternative, but other recommendations have been made as well.[citation needed]
In the world of affiliate marketing, an advertiser can be a company selling a product like electronics, airline tickets, clothing or car parts, or an advertiser could also be an insurance company selling policies. The most important thing to remember is that you are an advertiser if you are ready to pay other people to help you sell and promote your business.
This is a short book, a VERY short book. I read it all in 15 minutes! It covers the various types of internet marketing, and gives an overview of ways to expand your audience. Basically, this book IS an overview of it all.
It’s hard to call a program a scam when they let you come in and see for yourself how much value you would be getting before they try to take a cent from you. I have always said on this website that you should not sign up for any program that does not at least have a trial offer.
I would expect no less from a program created by Stefan Pylarinos. The quality of training you get even before you have to pay a dime beats what most programs will charge you for. The material covered was clear, concise, honest and straightforward.
As I mentioned above, there is no limit to the amount of money you can earn from affiliate programs. It all depends on which program you’re promoting and how many conversion you are making. I started with $47 as my first affiliate income, and now I make almost $4k-5K/month by promoting products which I use every day.
PID (publisher website ID) is used to identify the publisher’s website. A CJ publisher may have multiple PIDs under one single CJ account (e.g. if you maintain multiple websites, you will have multiple PIDs).
Good comment Jason, at some time in the future Amazon may decide they have so much market share they don’t need affiliates anyway. I mean, if you’re just sending them people who are already Amazon customers there’s not so much benefit there for them. Or they may decide to only work with select HIGH QUALITY affiliates and the average “affiliate site” owner will not be chosen.
Merchants favor affiliate marketing because in most cases it uses a “pay for performance” model, meaning that the merchant does not incur a marketing expense unless results are accrued (excluding any initial setup cost).[22]
As a result, you might get banned for doing something that was previously allowed or a minor issue that could’ve been solved if they had sent a warning email, like in the case of Dennis (snapshot above)
This book is convincing and practical because the author has lived the experience of succeeding at affiliate marketing. He offers a program tested in the fires of internet hell–and survived to give us a way to a little bit of money heaven on earth! Six years or more of experimentation–“In 2009 I started sending traffic from Adwords to some very simple landing pages that featured Amazon products. It started slow but quickly built up to about $500 a day in profit. Then one day boom! Adwords killed the account.” So he tried other ways–most didn’t work. A few did–and “that’s what this guide is about.”
Thanks for your blogs and educating people.I read your blogs and got a good understanding of affiliate marketing. I am new to affiliate marketing and I want to ask you some questions..I am a resident of Indian currently in NewZealand on a tourist visa. I want to start Amazon affiliate website. my question is can I start amazon affiliate website in NewZealand while staying in India.I want to target NewZealand Audience only. If we can then can you please suggest me how I can do it.Your guidance will be very helpful for me.
I don’t have the exact statistics, but among all the top selling affiliate sites I researched on Flippa and dozens of others that I found during research for my previous NicheHacks post, hardly 10% were actively building email lists or growing their social media following.
I stumble upon a roadblock signing up as an affiliate for Amazon. On step 3 they ask for a number for verification. They are restricted from making calls to the Phils for verification. I thought of using a Google voice number (US based). Will that help? I don’t want to try until I am sure for fear of getting rejected even before I start. Or what do you suggest? I tried a live chat with Amazon and all the CS said was yeah no call verification for a Philippine number. appreciate your help. Thank you.

Affiliate Marketing Secrets
Figuring out which niche to target is the stumbling point for a lot of wannabe affiliates. As I mentioned in my post on how to research a niche, I’ve stumbled on some of my niches completely by chance – others I found and targeted.If you’re … Read More

Landing pages: A unique product sales or demo page used for the purpose of increasing sales. Most of the programs that you will be promoting have many landing pages, and you can run A/B testing to see which pages convert best for you.
Well, let me say this. There are several videos that Stephan does. They are all great. He is positive and upbeat. A couple of things I am noticing though is that, I am a little disconcerted with the fact that in some of his videos, he sort of flaunts the fact that he’s moving into a $3 million dollar penthouse in Vancouver (it’s really not that glamorous looking at all in my opinion. Oh, and he’s renting it, not buying it.) Or the little pictures and videos of him driving around in his Corvette (more flaunting), or that he mentions all of these different countries he is in such as the Dominican Republic, ..wherever… doing the Airbnb thing. Or the fact that he states many times the dollar figures he makes per month or per year investing. It kind of comes off as flaunting. If you are successful, could you be a bit more humble about your wealth? That is just my “style”.
After reading this I think I will get on and build that list, I’ve been busy with other things but do realise the need for this. I also have brand related social media accounts and work at building these up also. This does take time but I know it’s worth it, I made a couple of sales in the first month with my site using social media sharing.
Yes and no. You should never pay to become an affiliate for a merchant’s program. Joining and promoting an affiliate program is a free opportunity. If someone is asking you to spend money to become their affiliate, then you’re being presented with an affiliate scam and should steer clear of that program.
Then one of your friends decides to buy it and you get a 10% commission from iTunes. That means you’ve just added an extra $200 in your bank account by being social without doing any kind of work. Your facecbook friends wont even notice that you’re getting paid unless you tell them. The power of affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to be a boring sales person.
Start a free online blog using Blogger, WordPress or a similar site. Since you start these blogs for free, the cost is only the time you spend designing and adding content. Choose something on which you are passionate so that you can add interesting content and develop followers.
If the above locations do not yield information pertaining to affiliates, it may be the case that there exists a non-public affiliate program. Utilizing one of the common website correlation methods may provide clues about the affiliate network. The most definitive method for finding this information is to contact the website owner directly if a contact method can be located.
I am very familiar with Stefan’s programs and have listened to his stuf,, as well as bought some of his programs before. While I always enjoyed his smaller programs – I had success with his Kindle Money Mastery course – and I am an affiliate for his programs, I know that this course is overpriced. It is a great program, don’t get me wrong, actually more in depth than WA, but it should be priced at half of his on sale price.
All the videos are equipped with a pdf transcript and summary so that you can go over anything you missed. You also get assignments so that you can apply what you learned. And on the top of all that, you get a full refund if you feel like the program isn’t working for you. So basically, it is 100% risk free, as 30 days are enough to make up your mind about something.
Thank you Harsh bro.. the term will “thanks” is a very small word to express my gratitude.. but your posts.. lessons.. turned me a normal blogger to moderated associated site.. now my blog search results are satisfactory.. only because of your lessons..
An ethical business will let you take the time to decide whether or not it is right for you. This is a sales tactic to get you to sign up quickly before the price goes up. That is hype and and it is NOT the way to treat people.
Pick a niche you are passionate about, and confirm other people are passionate about it. the best way to do this is to type the main keyword of your niche into Amazon’s search box. If you see dozens and hundreds of products related to your niche (with lots of product reviews) it’s typically a good niche to get into.
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.
Create a blog and create tons of content related to your niche. You don’t (nor shouldnt) sell affiliate offers in every piece of content. Ideally, you want to aim for a content to promotion ration of 5:1. This is what Google is looking for. Always keep Google happy.
