5 Tactics that Will Supercharge Your Amazon Affiliate Store

If you have noticed that people are making thousands on Amazon, you may have begun investigating how to make your own Amazon affiliate store. Why wouldn’t you want to get your piece of the pie? If you do have a store already, you may be wondering why you aren’t doing as well as some of the affiliates you hear about. In this article, we are going to show you 5 tactics that will supercharge your Amazon affiliate store.

You have probably bought your fair share of products on Amazon and want to know how you can make some of that money back. Being an Amazon affiliate through the associates program will allow you to make money when you refer people that buy from the Amazon site. There are varying percentages that you can earn but things like wine and gift cards are 0%, so be sure you look on the site before you start promoting something.

As you are building your Amazon affiliate empire, there are always ways to improve and increase profitability. Enjoy these tips and make sure that you put them into action right away so that you can start seeing results that could even rival the top Amazon sellers that you envy.

1. Choose a “Hair on Fire” Niche

What do you think someone with their hair on fire wants? That’s right. They want a solution. They don’t want to think about it. They want to fix what is going on. These are the kind of people that you want to come to your store so that you can let them buy through Amazon and you can get paid.

If you don’t pick the right niche, you could be waiting for people to purchase products for a long time. You want people to buy when you send traffic to your site.

Think of challenges like weight gain, hair loss, relationships. All of these things are issues that people want to have a solution to their problem right away because it is embarrassing or uncomfortable to them to continue how they are right now.

2. Do Product Reviews

Doing a review of the product that you are trying to sell is a great idea. Talking about the features and showcasing it in a way that is going to show people the benefits is important. Many times the Amazon product descriptions are not the best but if you can give them a great description and a product review before they get to Amazon, this is going to up the probability that they will make a purchase whenever they get to the page and see the product.

3. Link to Products Within Your Content

As you are writing content around your topic, you want to make sure that you link to relevant products by creating hyperlinks in your text. When you do this people will be compelled to click and see what they are. This will get them to Amazon so they can purchase from the site.

As you are writing your content, you can be talking to someone about how to fish. As you are talking about each piece of gear that they are going to need, you can put a hyperlink right to the product they need. This way if they want to go through the whole list and buy everything on the list, they can easily do this.

4. Make Images Clickable Links

You should always have images in your posts and when you do, you want to make sure every image in your post is a clickable link. When you make the link a clickable link, you will have another opportunity to link people to Amazon. You can put multiple photos throughout the post, just make sure that all of them link out to Amazon.

5. Focus On Getting People to Amazon

You whole goal when you are an Amazon affiliate is to get people to go to Amazon. You have no other goal whatsoever but to get people to Amazon. The reason that you focus on doing this is because Amazon knows how to close the sale. People trust Amazon. Their credit cards are most likely already on the super giant’s website under 1 click. How could it get any better?

Whether it is through an image or through a link, you want to make sure that you have as many opportunities for people to get to Amazon as you can.

Bonus Tip: Instead of having normal banner ads from Amazon, you need to make sure that you have native shopping ads. You can customize these and make sure that people are getting the ads that are most relevant to them. If you are just showing a main banner ad, you are missing out on the targeting that you could be doing.


Now that you have these tips to supercharge your Amazon site, it is time to get to work. There is plenty to be done whether you have a site yet or not. Either way, I am sure that you need to make some changes to up the conversion rate. Always make sure that you are testing when you change anything out and make sure that you write any changes that you make down in case your conversion rate goes down. If your conversion rate goes down, you want to know what you changed so that you can put it back.
