How to do Affiliate Marketing with Amazon
Do you want to earn money online? Today, I will share everything I know in this detailed guide on Amazon affiliate marketing.
You can earn money by setting up a website and redirecting your traffic to amazon. And during this process, you can make a smart commission.
First, let me tell you what affiliate marketing is.
Affiliate marketing is promoting someone else’s product, and when any conversion happens, you are reaping out some benefit with this.
We all know Amazon. Amazon is the largest eCommerce website out there. There are tons of physical products on amazon.
So basically, what you need to do is set up an amazon associate account. Then list your website there. And producing some quality content on your website.
So when you rank your website, people will read the reviews and go to amazon. Then after they purchase the product (or any product), you will get a commission depending on the category of the products.
This is basically how things work. But now, you may have tons of questions, like how to set up a website and what to do after that.
Don’t worry; I’ll guide you and make sure you get all the required knowledge for being a successful amazon associate.
Suppose you want to buy a mountain bike. What will you do? You will search on google for the best mountain bike. So here, the search query you’ve used is “best mountain bike.”
When you put this keyword in google, it will show you a list of websites that have the necessary information regarding the best mountain bikes.
You can go through any website and see what they have written. Most of the time, you will see 5 to 10 mountain bike reviews in a single post. These are called buying guides.
The keyword best mountain bike is a buying keyword. It will become a buying keyword whenever you add the best or top or words like this.
Now you must be wondering, what does a buying keyword mean?
When people are certain that they want to buy something, they search with this sort of keyword. So they already know what mountain bikes are. Now all they need is some more knowledge of the current best-selling product in the market.
Because everyone wants to have the best product, and by adding the word best, you tell google that I already know what mountain bikes are, now show me the top-performing mountain bikes in the market.
Now reading this, you must be wondering that, Ok, there’s a huge demand for a mountain bike, so I should be making a website based on mountain bikes.
But wait, not so fast.
Before making any website, you need to do some keyword research and competition analysis. Because your website is only good to people and you can make money if you can rank that website on the first page.
Not only the first page, but it should also be in the top 3 positions. Only then you can hope to make some money.
So for keyword research, you can use ahrefs. It’s a premium tool that people use for keyword research, backlink research, and whatnot.
If you type “best mountain bike,” it will show you some results. Like the search volume. How great the keyword is, how difficult it is to rank for the keyword. Everything you want to know will be available in the software.
So you need to make sure whether enough people are searching for the products or not. If not many people are searching for the product then what’s the use. So you need to know whether there’s a demand in the market for this product.
After that, you need to look at the top page of google. How old are these websites? How many backlinks do they have, what DR TR do they have?
Ok, so you may not know what DR UR means.
DR means Domain Rating, and UR means URL Rating. So the more these scores are, the more powerful these websites will be. So now you need to understand whether you want to be in this competition or not because there’s a high chance of losing money if you’re in a super competitive market fighting for a product that will require a lot of content, backlinks and investments.
And even after that, there’s no guarantee that you will get the top spot in Google. So you have to find that sweet spot where you can spend money building a website and get the top spot easily.
Now you must be wondering, how do I do that?
It’s really simple. You need to find low competition keywords that have decent volume. A niche that is not saturated.
When you find something like this, you can make your money keyword and make a website on that particular niche.
Suppose you got into a niche that is already competitive. People have written 10k words worth buying guide. Then you can’t just grab the top spot by providing 2 to 3k words of content.
You need to match the content level with other competitors. Also, if those websites are getting hundreds of backlinks, you have to manage hundreds of backlinks.
The entire process can be time-consuming; it may also require a lot of money.
That’s why it’s suggested that you pick a small niche that doesn’t have any competition now, and you can build a website and become profitable.
There’s another upside to making your website. The website is like property.
In 2022 everyone around us is competing for attention. If you have a website, you can sell that website in Empire Flippers or FE International. If your website is getting $1000 per month, you can list that website in those broker websites, and they will check the website for an accurate valuation.
After the checking is done, they will reach out to you and give you a multiplier. Previously people used to buy websites with 20/25 multiplier. But now, people are easily getting a 50 multiplier or sometimes even more.
If your website gets $1000 per month and a multiplier of 50, you can sell the website for $50000.
There are many broker marketplaces you can check for yourself.
