00:00:00 00:00:02 hello everybody thanks for coming to my
00:00:01 00:00:04 channel today my name is grace I'm also
00:00:02 00:00:06 known as lil mama and I'm from the blog
00:00:04 00:00:09 work anywhere now calm and in this video
00:00:06 00:00:11 today I'm going to show you how to start
00:00:09 00:00:14 Amazon affiliate marketing and using
00:00:11 00:00:16 their affiliate program to build your
00:00:14 00:00:17 online business and earn Amazon
00:00:16 00:00:19 Commission's so let's get started right
00:00:17 00:00:19 now and I'll show you how to do it step
00:00:19 00:00:26 by step
00:00:26 00:00:31 so the first thing you want to do is
00:00:29 00:00:33 actually the name of Amazon's affiliate
00:00:31 00:00:36 programs I should call Amazon Associates
00:00:33 00:00:38 so if you type that into Google you'll
00:00:36 00:00:41 get this as your first link and that is
00:00:38 00:00:43 how you can get to the program itself so
00:00:41 00:00:45 you will get to this page when you click
00:00:43 00:00:48 on that link and so here you can find
00:00:45 00:00:50 out some information about Amazon's
00:00:48 00:00:52 affiliate program and what's important
00:00:50 00:00:55 about the program is that they are very
00:00:52 00:00:58 finicky and you should really read
00:00:55 00:01:01 everything about this program if you are
00:00:58 00:01:04 going to really dive into it and use
00:01:01 00:01:06 this affiliate program it is a great
00:01:04 00:01:09 affiliate program for beginners and it
00:01:06 00:01:11 is a really user-friendly program but
00:01:09 00:01:13 they do have some quirks that I will go
00:01:11 00:01:15 over in a second okay
00:01:13 00:01:18 so quickly though I am just gonna go
00:01:15 00:01:21 over a few things on this one pay on
00:01:18 00:01:24 their front page here so you can either
00:01:21 00:01:27 set up your account join now for free or
00:01:24 00:01:30 login if you already have an account you
00:01:27 00:01:32 do want to set up an account here under
00:01:30 00:01:34 Amazon Associates just so you are making
00:01:32 00:01:36 sure you are creating your account in
00:01:34 00:01:39 the right space but if you already have
00:01:36 00:01:42 an Amazon account you can still use that
00:01:39 00:01:44 account when you are shopping you can
00:01:42 00:01:47 still use it that same login for Amazon
00:01:44 00:01:50 Associates but not to confuse myself I
00:01:47 00:01:53 use it my business email for in this
00:01:50 00:01:55 partikular account you are not allowed
00:01:53 00:01:56 to use your own affiliate links so
00:01:55 00:01:59 that's the other thing you want to keep
00:01:56 00:02:01 separate okay that's one of the quirks I
00:01:59 00:02:04 was telling you about Amazon is that you
00:02:01 00:02:06 cannot just use your affiliate link and
00:02:04 00:02:09 send it to your friends and family and
00:02:06 00:02:12 have them buy off of your links because
00:02:09 00:02:14 they do not allow that don't ask me how
00:02:12 00:02:17 they know who your friends and family
00:02:14 00:02:19 are but they know and you better not be
00:02:17 00:02:22 earning from your friends and family
00:02:19 00:02:24 okay so that's a big no-no this is
00:02:22 00:02:27 definitely a worldwide guy so if I look
00:02:24 00:02:29 at the countries available here it is
00:02:27 00:02:31 worldwide it's a lot of different
00:02:29 00:02:33 countries but not all countries
00:02:31 00:02:37 obviously it looks like so it's
00:02:33 00:02:40 basically wherever Amazon is available
00:02:37 00:02:42 to you make sure you are signing up
00:02:40 00:02:43 under the right country that you want
00:02:42 00:02:46 when you're building your business
00:02:43 00:02:48 you're basically selling on the internet
00:02:46 00:02:50 and that means that you may get visitors
00:02:48 00:02:52 from the United Kingdom or from France
00:02:50 00:02:55 or wherever around the world on your
00:02:52 00:02:57 website and so you may want to sign up
00:02:55 00:03:00 for more than one country and you can do
00:02:57 00:03:02 that so just because you're living in a
00:03:00 00:03:05 specific country it does not mean you
00:03:02 00:03:07 can't sign up for other countries so if
00:03:05 00:03:10 you want to earn from let's say like I'm
00:03:07 00:03:12 in the United States so if I want I get
00:03:10 00:03:15 Canadian visitors and I get United
00:03:12 00:03:19 Kingdom the majority of my traffic is US
00:03:15 00:03:21 UK and Canada so I would probably sign
00:03:19 00:03:24 up for three of those they have a
00:03:21 00:03:27 function inside to link everything
00:03:24 00:03:29 together is called one link and you can
00:03:27 00:03:32 offer your readers the appropriate
00:03:29 00:03:35 Amazon links to use when they're on your
00:03:32 00:03:37 site the first thing is to join now for
00:03:35 00:03:39 free and go through their application
00:03:37 00:03:42 process is very simple and
00:03:39 00:03:45 self-explanatory to go through they're
00:03:42 00:03:47 set up or signup process so you just
00:03:45 00:03:50 gotta join like it's saying here and
00:03:47 00:03:52 then what you're gonna be doing this is
00:03:50 00:03:55 the work that you need to do right here
00:03:52 00:03:57 on this heart where you're you're not
00:03:55 00:04:00 really like advertising per se like to
00:03:57 00:04:02 them that's advertising but it's like
00:04:00 00:04:05 basically how are you gonna promote your
00:04:02 00:04:08 Amazon products okay and then when you
00:04:05 00:04:10 earn you're gonna earn up to 10%
00:04:08 00:04:12 advertising fees meaning these are
00:04:10 00:04:16 Commission's that you are going to earn
00:04:12 00:04:17 so then you earn this much money and I
00:04:16 00:04:21 can show you the categories here this is
00:04:17 00:04:24 their fee schedule as they say this is
00:04:21 00:04:26 the associate program standard fee
00:04:24 00:04:30 schedule which is their commission rates
00:04:26 00:04:33 and there are very few products that are
00:04:30 00:04:36 above 5% as you can see only this luxury
00:04:33 00:04:40 beauty and Amazon coins is that 10%
00:04:36 00:04:44 everything else is below 5% and majority
00:04:40 00:04:46 is at 4% with all other categories so
00:04:44 00:04:48 they recently had a change in the
00:04:46 00:04:52 decrease some of the rates that they had
00:04:48 00:04:54 but they are still a pretty good program
00:04:52 00:04:56 that I would not put all your eggs in
00:04:54 00:04:59 one basket with Amazon because they keep
00:04:56 00:05:01 decreasing their program so that's the
00:04:59 00:05:03 only thing I would have a start with
00:05:01 00:05:07 them but I wouldn't just use them alone
00:05:03 00:05:09 so here are some Fe cues that I put
00:05:07 00:05:12 together that I think you want to know
00:05:09 00:05:14 okay so of course I just show you if
00:05:12 00:05:16 this is worldwide meaning well world
00:05:14 00:05:19 wise in a lot of different countries but
00:05:16 00:05:22 not everybody and you will earn
00:05:19 00:05:23 everything in the cart so before as
00:05:22 00:05:28 explained this I'm gonna explain this
00:05:23 00:05:30 part too so 24-hour cookie duration so
00:05:28 00:05:33 what does that mean 24-hour cookie
00:05:30 00:05:36 duration is when somebody clicks on your
00:05:33 00:05:38 Amazon affiliate link when they click on
00:05:36 00:05:40 it from the moment they click on that to
00:05:38 00:05:43 the moment that they purchase they only
00:05:40 00:05:47 have 24 hours for you to earn your
00:05:43 00:05:50 Commission's so let's say they don't buy
00:05:47 00:05:53 within the 24 hours that they clicked on
00:05:50 00:05:55 your link to go to Amazon to buy but
00:05:53 00:05:58 they don't buy right away then they buy
00:05:55 00:06:00 like 24 hours and a 1 second after they
00:05:58 00:06:03 had clicked your link then you don't get
00:06:00 00:06:06 that commission however if they do buy
00:06:03 00:06:08 within the 24 hour cookie duration you
00:06:06 00:06:11 get to earn everything in the cart that
00:06:08 00:06:13 they buy so maybe you are just promoting
00:06:11 00:06:16 kitchen stuff but then they're also
00:06:13 00:06:19 buying all sorts of other things like
00:06:16 00:06:21 tents and you know pet supplies and all
00:06:19 00:06:23 that but you get to earn all that
00:06:21 00:06:26 because they are buying within the 24
00:06:23 00:06:29 hour computer ation so that is actually
00:06:26 00:06:32 one of the best perks about the Amazon
00:06:29 00:06:36 affiliate program and why it's a great
00:06:32 00:06:38 way to earn from this program and so
00:06:36 00:06:41 they still have this feature which is
00:06:38 00:06:44 great but then right here for beginners
00:06:41 00:06:46 sometimes they could get stuck and they
00:06:44 00:06:49 may not make a first sale within the
00:06:46 00:06:52 first 100 80 days so what happens if you
00:06:49 00:06:54 don't make your first sale in 180 days
00:06:52 00:06:57 they will close your account and when
00:06:54 00:06:59 they close your account then you're not
00:06:57 00:07:00 going to be able to
00:06:59 00:07:02 gay sales from that same account you're
00:07:00 00:07:04 gonna have to make some changes on your
00:07:02 00:07:06 website or something like that and
00:07:04 00:07:09 reapply so I would suggest if you're
00:07:06 00:07:13 really brand new to a fillip marketing
00:07:09 00:07:16 that you do not apply for a account on
00:07:13 00:07:19 Amazon until you have something that is
00:07:16 00:07:22 already generating traffic for you
00:07:19 00:07:24 consistently every single day okay I'm
00:07:22 00:07:27 gonna keep going and show you the method
00:07:24 00:07:29 that you should be using okay to
00:07:27 00:07:32 generate traffic automatikally
00:07:29 00:07:34 consistently every day so I've mentioned
00:07:32 00:07:36 the one link and that is something that
00:07:34 00:07:39 you can use when you are signed up with
00:07:36 00:07:42 multiple locations on amazon's affiliate
00:07:39 00:07:45 program and so you can link all that
00:07:42 00:07:47 with this one link function inside and
00:07:45 00:07:49 so you could earn between one to ten
00:07:47 00:07:52 percent majority is four percent
00:07:49 00:07:55 basically and you do need a website to
00:07:52 00:07:58 apply because during the signup process
00:07:55 00:07:59 they will ask you for a website so you
00:07:58 00:08:02 will need something and i really suggest
00:07:59 00:08:05 that you go through their terms and
00:08:02 00:08:07 conditions and read all their rules
00:08:05 00:08:09 because there's some like offline
00:08:07 00:08:12 marketing that you're not allowed either
00:08:09 00:08:15 like email marketing you cannot put a
00:08:12 00:08:17 fill at links in there okay so the first
00:08:15 00:08:21 thing you need to do to set up your
00:08:17 00:08:24 Amazon affiliate website is by deciding
00:08:21 00:08:27 on a niche okay so the best thing to do
00:08:24 00:08:31 is look at the sellers of course why do
00:08:27 00:08:33 all the work when you know Amazon does
00:08:31 00:08:36 it for you so search Amazon best sellers
00:08:33 00:08:40 and the first link will get you to this
00:08:36 00:08:42 page here where it shows you everything
00:08:40 00:08:46 that is best seller in every single
00:08:42 00:08:49 category over here okay so this is a
00:08:46 00:08:53 very very good way for you to check out
00:08:49 00:08:56 how to or what to promote first of all
00:08:53 00:08:59 and what niche you can go into so
00:08:56 00:09:01 definitely pick a niche because when you
00:08:59 00:09:04 are doing affiliate marketing you are
00:09:01 00:09:08 trying to become an expert in a certain
00:09:04 00:09:10 field okay or at least per website
00:09:08 00:09:12 because when you have visitors coming to
00:09:10 00:09:14 your website and let
00:09:12 00:09:17 is a kitchen site like I was saying
00:09:14 00:09:19 earlier and then you don't want the your
00:09:17 00:09:21 visitors to be confused if you have like
00:09:19 00:09:23 soccer items on there right because they
00:09:21 00:09:26 are thinking you know you are the
00:09:23 00:09:28 kitchen person and you should develop
00:09:26 00:09:31 trust in that niche and that's why you
00:09:28 00:09:33 should only have one niche per website
00:09:31 00:09:36 you give multiple websites that's not a
00:09:33 00:09:40 problem but per website you do want one
00:09:36 00:09:42 niche per website okay so you could go
00:09:40 00:09:45 through each one of these okay and
00:09:42 00:09:48 decide what you're going be doing as
00:09:45 00:09:50 your niche and there are literally so
00:09:48 00:09:53 many niches that you can go to so if you
00:09:50 00:09:58 drill down to each one you're gonna find
00:09:53 00:10:01 that the subcategories can be your niche
00:09:58 00:10:04 already okay so like wall dacor could be
00:10:01 00:10:06 a niche bath could be a niche or mat
00:10:04 00:10:07 back and bedding could be a niche or
00:10:06 00:10:10 just kitchen stuff
00:10:07 00:10:13 even within kitchen I mean kitchen is a
00:10:10 00:10:16 big category and you can do a site just
00:10:13 00:10:18 on coffee like on hot drinks like that
00:10:16 00:10:20 and like coffee tea an expresso you
00:10:18 00:10:23 could do a niche like that or just
00:10:20 00:10:26 baking or just different types of small
00:10:23 00:10:28 appliances and the recipes to go with
00:10:26 00:10:31 that you know there's so many things
00:10:28 00:10:33 that you can do with a niche now the
00:10:31 00:10:36 second thing you would need to do is
00:10:33 00:10:38 start building your website and where
00:10:36 00:10:41 are you gonna build your website look my
00:10:38 00:10:44 suggestion is going to the place that I
