Now that Christmas is nearly upon us again, it’s time to start thinking about earning an income from all the people who will be looking for gifts online. The perfect way to supplement your website and earn a passive income easily is to start reviewing products on your blog.
There are a few things that you will need in place before you can do this, first of all you will need to sign up to an affiliate program and the one that I highly recommend is the amazon associates program. If you’re not already a member sign up to it, just use Google to find the link, and it only takes a few minutes to sign up and start to promote their products.
Amazon is the perfect affiliate program for you to choose, people love shopping on Amazon and with a huge number of products to choose from in every department under the sun you will definitely be able to find something to promote that matches the topic of your own website.
After you have signed up to Amazon Associates program you should look through all of the products that might suit your website topic, make a short list of the products you would like to promote. Make sure that these products are already selling by looking at the amount of reviews people are leaving. If there are lots of five star reviews, then great, it might be definitely worth promoting.
Once you have made your shortlist of products and got the link to place on your website it’s time to start promoting them. You have a few choices that you can use, you could place banner ads on your website, provided by Amazon, you can place banner ads at the top of your website pages or in the side bar. This puts those banners in a prominent place on your website for visitors to see and click on. If they purchase through that link then you will receive a commission from Amazon.
I have found that the very best way to promote products on your website is with a short easy to write product review. A product review can be written in just a few minutes and should include images, videos if you can source them and get permission to use them, keywords to use in the title and throughout the content of the review, and a list of features that you want to include in your review.
Picking the best features to write about will get you the best conversions and click through’s on your affiliate link. The reason is that these will be the features that people are most interested in and searching for in the search engines. So, you provide a great review of that feature with images and videos and written content, then at the end you provide a link which simply states where they can purchase the product from and to check the prices. Easy, it only takes a few minutes of your time and you could be earning a commission within the next few days, especially if you have visitors to your website on a consistent basis.
