Here’s a tip on how to make money with amazon affiliate program

Depending on your niche you can create banners, links and widgets to place on your website.

For instance, Tech websites I have seen in the past marketing amazon products usually have a widget where they recommend products. An example is notable in a gadget site that recommend game consoles in the sidebar.


If you run a website where people get to read books you can create a sidebar widget for recommended books.

Then as your traffic grows your earnings also grows.

Affiliate marketing is indeed a great way to make money as a blogger or internet marketer. I hope this article helps on how to make money with amazon affiliate program.

  1. Thanks for sharing.

    I have an Amazon associate account but have been finding it difficult to refer and earn commissions

  2. Hey Prosper,
    thanks for sharing this article.
    If you cant get hold of Textplus or Primo app then there are some websites that offer services alike.
    Like Sellaite SMS RECEIVER, Twilio and Pinger Textfree Web.
    Infact I have been trying to create and verify a US PayPal using this means.
    I am still on the reaserch stage and if it works out I will still let you and others know.
    Anyway, thanks for sharing

    • Hello Golden,

      Great contributions actually, thanks.
      However, SMS receiver websites don’t work because you have to input a code as the amazon bot calls your phone.
      Using this Apps then makes it possible to receive and dial through your mobile.
