There are even more ways to make money online by using the Amazon Associates Program. The Amazon Associates program is another great way for you to earn passive income online.
One of the best ways to make money online is to drive traffic from your travel blog or website and let Amazon do what they do best.
Tried and Tested
Amazon has been around for almost 20 years and is one the most trusted websites on the internet. While it’s always changing, it’s very easy to say that Amazon does over 54 million dollars of sales, each day.
That’s beyond impressive.
Amazon has anywhere from 80 to 160 Million credit cards on file and one click purchasing. Thus making it very easy for the impulse buyer to make a purchase on a whim.
It would also be unwise to at least get some piece of that.
If you are serious about monetizing your travel blog, earning extra money and further funding your travels – then you should highly consider joining the Amazon Associates program.
Several Ways to Make Money with Amazon
You’ve probably have seen other blogs and website promoting the products they use and or endorse. A good example of this is if you check my Travel Shop page.
My Travel Shop page shows all my travel gear that I use which includes cameras, my very old, but very trusty day bag, my iPhone, my Macbook, etc.
All of these products I use myself. I use them, I love them and have no trouble endorsing them and totally recommend them. Because to be frank. They’re awesome!
I then link the products back to my Amazon Associates account. What this means is that every time a reader clicks on a link through that page, they are taken to Amazon.com where they can purchase the item.
When a purchase is made from that reader I receive a percentage of the sale.
If you have been following my blog for sometime you probably know that I am a huge fan of the GoPro Hero2 Cameras. You can tell by going to my YouTube Channel. I use them all the time for everything. They’re compact, light weight, they produce high quality video and are Full-HD. You can even wear them!
For example. If a reader clicks on my GoPro Hero2 link, they will be taken to the GoPro Hero2 page on Amazon where they have the option to buy the camera. If that reader buys a the Hero2 or anything else from Amazon, I get a commission from it.
Pretty cool, hunh?
Here is a screenshot of some of my recent Amazon Associates sales.
Obviously, the bigger the sale, the more money you get. I for one, think it’s interesting to see the different things sold.
Although in once instance, it looks like one product was returned – so I didn’t receive any commission for that one.
Don’t Leave Money Behind!
As you can tell, using the Amazon Associates program is another really good way to make money online and one that I highly recommend.
