The Amazon affiliate program helps Internet users from around the globe to generate revenue from their blogs and websites. If you are looking to monetize your site further by implementing affiliate links for the products listed on your site, here’s how to set up an Amazon Affiliate account.
For starters, please note that Amazon has different affiliate programs for different countries pertaining to their stores. Although you can join any program based on the type of audience on your site, signing up for your own country’s store is the first step.
Setting up Amazon Affiliate Account
- Firstly, open up the country-specific Amazon Affiliate Program link
- Now click on Join Now for Free button and login with your Amazon account. If you do not have an Amazon account, sign up for it by creating one.
The next page includes four steps where you will have to fill up the account details first.
On the next page, you will be asked to enter at least one of your website URLs and any Mobile app URLs if you have any.
On the next page, you are asked to fill up your profile details, which include various specifics, including questions regarding traffic and monetization on your website.
And after submitting the captcha and agreeing to the terms and conditions, you can click on Finish, which will create your account successfully.
After finishing up, you will now see the Dashboard, which contains all the info related to the affiliate program, including the earnings report and overviews.
Now, the setup part of the account is completed, and now you can start implementing it on your websites.
The implementation comes in the form of links, banners, and widgets that you can place on your site. The best way to make use of the links is by creating separate blog posts or pages where you can list the products with the affiliate links. If the products do not need any descriptions, you can place a banner or add a widget on the sidebar with the affiliate product links.
There are many ways you can start with, but it is suggested to keep things to a minimum so as not to lose your audience or readers. Depending on your niche, you can choose the preferred type and monetize the blog to a certain level. To create links:
- Log in to your Affiliate account and head over to any product page on Amazon.
- You will see a bar ‘Amazon Associates SiteStripe’ where you can click on Get Link > Text to generate the link.
Now you can copy the generated link and use it anywhere on your site.
- The other workaround is by going to Product Linking in the Amazon Affiliate Program dashboard and searching for the product you are looking for and generate the link.
- Now copy the link and use it on your website.
The generated affiliate links can also be used in your YouTube video descriptions.
Overall, the Amazon Affiliate Program works wonders if used in a way that doesn’t bombard your readers.
