To profit with Amazon can be a challenge from a blog or website. The well known online retail giant has many products to promote but how do we do it well?
There are many things to think about though, in this post we will talk about a few of them.
7 Tips to Massively Increase Profit with Amazon
1. Stay Relevant
The most important thing is that you keep you traffic, content and solution relevant to each other. If somebody is looking for a blender, you want your content to be about blenders and you want to send the visitor to a relevant offer, a specific blender.
Relevancy is key!
2. Know Your Product to Profit With Amazon
When monetizing with amazon you are most likely recommending one of the many physical products that they offer. To know your product is important. The best way is of course if you get the product so that you can try it out for yourself.
I know that is not always possible. See if you can get hold of the product in your local store, just to take a look at it and possible try, depending on what it is. Another way is to use similar products and compare, relate to the product that you mention on your site.
3. Product Reviews Convert
Using product reviews on your site, can really improve conversion. They should be in depth and outline the benefits, the good and the bad about the product. This will give your readers great information so that they can decide if the product is for them or not.
When you do your reviews, be honest. Some products will be good, some might not. That’s ok.
4. Link using Text Link and Image Link
When linking out from your site to amazon, you want to use both text links and images. “Click Here” buttons also convert very well.
The great thing is, if you get your visitor to amazon they do a fantastic job converting that traffic into sales IF it is relevant traffic.
5. Promote Low Ticket Items or High Ticket Items?
I say both.
The low ticket items to get your commission % up. You start with a 4% commission but that can be bumped up to 6-8+%. The low ticket items will help you get the volume that you need. The high ticket items will increase revenue.
The high ticket item sales might not be as many as the low ticket items, but it gives a nice income bump.
6. Be Ready for the Holidays
Take advantage of the holidays and you will profit with Amazon. The time around Christmas is a great time to be an amazon associate. People are happily opening their wallets to shop online. If you use organic listings in Google, target holiday related keyword terms.
7. Use a Plugin to Make Amazon Link Submission Easier
There are many plugins to use to make amazon link submission easier.
Another reason to use a plugin is to integrate the many different country codes. If you have visitors and potential shoppers from many different countries, you need to sign up with amazon in each and every one of those countries to get credited for the sales. These many different country codes can be easily tracked with the help of a plugin.
