Want to Earn Money Blogging?
The #1 way I earn money on my blogs is through the Amazon Affiliate Program.
By posting links to products from your Amazon Affiliate account you can make money when someone clicks on a link and makes a purchase on Amazon. The basic strategy for Amazon is to have people like me and you become “advertisers” for them.
By directing someone to the Amazon marketplace with a link we become Amazon’s sales team. And, as any great sales person knows, when you get a sale you get a commission.
Amazon Sales Commission:
The base price of a commission with Amazon is 4%. It doesn’t sound like much, but if someone makes a $100 purchase my commission is $4. If I am a really good sales person and have staked my claim in the internet real estate with Amazon Affiliate Links, I stand to make hundreds if not thousands of dollars as an affiliate marketer for Amazon.
An example of an Amazon Affiliate link is this:
