This is a fantastic article that has made me sit up and think. I have built a Amazon niche site with 75 pages, good useful content as well as review pages. 18 months in and I’m earning practically nothing from it.
Along with that, Amazon is a complete SELLING MACHINE! What I mean by that, is they have drilled their conversion rates down to the last detail. Typically I can convert traffic I send to Amazon from my affiliate sites around 12%. The reason why it works so well is that the moment people land on Amazon, they are automatically switched into “buyer mode”. Meaning, they know the only thing left for them to do is BUY. What that means, is all you have to do is get people to Amazon’s site, and they literally do the selling for you.
Grrr… If there’s one thing that annoys me it’s when people cry ‘SCAM’ online for something that clearly isn’t. For example if you buy a weight loss ebook and continue to shove donuts down your throat, then if you don’t lose weight it’s not because the ebook is a scam, right? What’s worse than this though …

Since the emergence of affiliate marketing, there has been little control over affiliate activity. Unscrupulous affiliates have used spam, false advertising, forced clicks (to get tracking cookies set on users’ computers), adware, and other methods to drive traffic to their sponsors. Although many affiliate programs have terms of service that contain rules against spam, this marketing method has historically proven to attract abuse from spammers.
Within more mature markets, less than one percent of traditional affiliate marketing programs today use cost per click and cost per mille. However, these compensation methods are used heavily in display advertising and paid search.
First of all, congratulations for writing such a wonderful post. It is always amazing to read something very useful. I have just get started with affiliate marketing since few months and this article really helps me to enhance my knowledge about what the heck is affiliate marketing all about.
You speak about legality – I would like to understand one thing. UK and European Bookmakers also offer Affiliate marketing as an option using the same concept (you promote them and they pay you some percentage of the revenue they earn). Would you be able to say that’s legal in India, i.e. can a website in India promote a British bookmaker without falling afoul of the law?
I don’t like Adsense at all, because if someone has very little traffic, then using Adsense is useless, but with the help of Affiliate Links, someone, even despite of having little traffic can generate Sales and make at least few dollars.
I am new to this website and the funny thing is that l was looking for an objective analysis on starting an Amazon affiliate site. Your review on this issue is the BEST that i have ever seen in the last 3 years. This article was a joy to read. It was detailed, honest and very hard hitting especially when you are trying to get readers to understand that they MUST diversify their traffic sources and STOP relying on getting to first page on Google. As a result of reading your article l am changing my digital marketing services, affiliate marketing and , e-commerce strategy. I look forward to hearing new and innovative ideas from you on internet marketing. Keep up the great work!!!

I started a few months back with creating my affiliate marketing website for a trading niche. Read your posts on the basics as I had no experience what so ever. From getting hosting to creating the site and basically everything. Made my first two affiliate sales $200 end of Aug started the site in July… and wow what a feeling hey…thanks to you and the SML with the guidance of your site I would have never got this far.. it’s still new and not many visitors yet but looking ahead and hoping for the best. Thanks again..always look forward to your posts.
Affiliate Marketing Mastery was created by Stefan James Pylarinos, an internet marketer with a huge reputation online. He has created many other quality programs in the past, including K Money Mastery.
SID (shopper ID) enables publisher to track where their referred actions originated so they can target and/or reward their unique shoppers. When the visitor makes a purchase or completes a lead form, that transaction is tracked and recorded by Commission Junction.
A visitor who clicks on one of these links or ads on the affiliate’s site will be redirected to the ecommerce site. If s/he ends up purchasing the product or service, then the e-commerce merchant credits the affiliate’s account with the agreed commission, which could be 5% to 10% of the sale price of the product.
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.
There are a few networks like Viglink and Skimlinks which automatically convert normal links into affiliate links. They use Javascript so it’s SEO friendly, and you do not need to sign up for an individual affiliate program.
If you want to build a sustainable, dependable, and long-term business, starting a product/category specific affiliate site that depends solely on Amazon commissions is the WORST piece of advice anyone can give you.
It’s TOO EASY to get caught up dabbling in life. Distraction, procrastination, laziness, fear, doubt, ego… these are all qualities of the “Dabbler” and reason why the majority struggle and ultimately end up unfulfilled.
Having said all that, Affiliate Marketing Mastery charges less than a lot of other affiliate marketing program out there that offer even less value. So relative to most programs, it looks to be of great value. Relative to the program where I learned affiliate marketing, the price is really high.
Many online companies who sell products such as shoes, web-hosting spaces, or some other service, usually offer an affiliate program. You can simply sign up for the program and get your unique tracking link. Now, whenever you are writing about their product, you can simply use this special tracking affiliate link to recommend the company’s site.
Since joining AMM, I’ve been blown away by Stefan’s constant improvement to the course. He has added dozens of new trainings and shares the latest strategies that he is using. He really goes above and beyond in improving it.
You get 7 training modules containing over 50 tutorial videos and each lesson comes with a downloadable PDF transcript and summary. You also get tasks at the end of each lesson designed to get you to take action on what you have just learned.
And on that same sell page, he’s promoting the fact of he’s giving 10% of profits for building 2 schools in Ethiopia. More questions….I mean, yeah I am all for donating money and helping charity, etc. But seriously, why is he hyping charity to Ethiopia and trying to get us to buy his overpriced course? I mean, it’s all right there. But for me, my focus and intention for ME, is that I’m looking to get started with AM and learn, DO, and grow….., …I am NOT looking to help someone else with their charitable projects right off the bat. Good lord, I give give money to charitable organizations so often already. So he gets the charity tax write off but we don’t? Wow. Ok.
The more fun you have with posting links, the more likely you are to get sales. For example, you may want to post a best-of blog for the year’s most innovative new products or the best non-fiction books of the year. You can include links to Amazon products and people will use the link as a reference and as a way to buy.
The most common question I hear is related to how companies track the record of who is sending the traffic and making the sales. The simple answer is with a tracking URL (a unique link given to you by the affiliate company or product company).
A great introduction into making passive income with affiliate marketing. I’m genuinely so interested in starting up in internet marketing and a with such a big user base, Amazon seems like a logical choice. The books runs through the steps needed to start the process and I am eager to see how things go. My first step towards financial freedom!

Miren, so many of us have wasted money and time (and we can never gain back time) trying many different online money making programs. I think that is why I can see right through this. And it seems many others can, as well.
