I’m curious how many people sit at work or at home thinking of ways to legally make additional money? By no means is this some sort of sales pitch to sucker you into a pyramid scheme or sell you fat burners, hair products or anything else. I am simply passing on information about arguably the most well known and respected company AMAZON… Ever notice Amazon does not really pay for advertising? You don’t really see advertisements on FB, Youtube, or Google about them why is that? I am about to tell you lol. Amazon’s marketing budget is smaller because they pay consumers, entrepreneurs, website owners and more to advertise / sell for them.
Amazon has something extremely cool called The Associates Program. The Google definition of Amazon Associates is an online affiliate marketing program launched in 1996. The Amazon Associates program has a more than 12 year track record of developing solutions to help website owners, Web developers, and Amazon sellers make money by advertising millions of new and used products from Amazon.com and its subsidiaries. When website owners and bloggers who are Associates create links and customers click through those links and buy products from Amazon, they earn referral fees. It’s free to join and easy to use. Provide customers the convenience of referring them to a trusted site where they can immediately purchase the products you advertise on your site. And when they do, you can earn up to 10% in referral fees.
This is a type of affiliate marketing. Are you familiar with the term affiliate marketing? Ok affiliate marketing in a net shell is when you agree to sell someone else’s digital or physical product. In turn you get a commission off the sale and the product creator gets the rest. The upsides for the affiliate marketer (which would be you) is no real overhead, no product inventory, no hassles with consumers receiving the product, shipping, tracking, or refunds. You literally don’t have to do anything but grab a link of products from your account and send it to friends and or family.
So let’s back up and let me break down to even simpler terms. You DON’T need a website to be a part of the Amazon Associate Program. You DON’T have to run ads, create business pages, or spend money to sign up. But I mean let’s be honest would having a blog or website help? Sure it would but it is not mandatory to make money. Just think about it, you probably spend a good amount of money on Amazon which means your entire family tree most likely does as well right? Well there you go customers right there. Very minimal effort here. It is as simple as signing up on Amazon, putting in your info and grabbing links of your favorite products, or of the hottest selling products during that month which Amazon tells you daily.
FULL DISCLOSURE you most likely won’t make 6 figures doing this. You most likely won’t make 50k… you most likely won’t make 25k, 20k, or even 15k but whatever you make is more than you originally had right? I am absolute garbage when it comes to being a salesman but I post products on my blog so I see commissions that way (couple to a few hundred dollars a month) plus with what my family and myself shops/buys.
As easy as it is to get started I know this won’t be for everyone but if you want to make even just an extra $25 a month this is a very easy and free option for you. Walmart, Target and other major chains have this program as well they just don’t pay as high a commission. I hope this post was helpful and thank you for your continuous support 🙂
