00:00:00 00:00:03 hello everybody thanks for coming to my
00:00:01 00:00:04 channel today my name is grace I'm also
00:00:03 00:00:06 known as little mama and I'm from the
00:00:04 00:00:08 blog work anywhere now calm in this
00:00:06 00:00:11 video today I'm gonna tok about Amazon
00:00:08 00:00:13 Associates Program and how Amazon has
00:00:11 00:00:16 slashed once again the Commission's for
00:00:13 00:00:18 affiliates and it's upsetting a lot of
00:00:16 00:00:20 people in their affiliate marketing
00:00:18 00:00:20 world so let's get started to discuss
00:00:20 00:00:27 this
00:00:27 00:00:34 all right welcome to my slide show here
00:00:30 00:00:37 is Amazon associate dead I'm not sure
00:00:34 00:00:41 but it sure looking like guys
00:00:37 00:00:43 so biggest news right now they just
00:00:41 00:00:46 announced yesterday they sent an email
00:00:43 00:00:49 to all their affiliates who is in the
00:00:46 00:00:51 Amazon Associates Program that's what
00:00:49 00:00:53 their affiliate program is called and
00:00:51 00:00:57 all those affiliates are called
00:00:53 00:00:59 associates and they also call their
00:00:57 00:01:01 Commission's or our Commission's
00:00:59 00:01:03 advertising fees because that's
00:01:01 00:01:04 advertising for them that's marketing
00:01:03 00:01:07 money for them
00:01:04 00:01:10 so what happened in his head it is no
00:01:07 00:01:13 secret that Amazon is always changing
00:01:10 00:01:16 their Commission structure to not favor
00:01:13 00:01:18 the affiliates it seems like through the
00:01:16 00:01:21 years I've been in a fillip marketing
00:01:18 00:01:23 since 2016 guys and through the years
00:01:21 00:01:26 I've known the program they think
00:01:23 00:01:30 decreasing decreasing but it has never
00:01:26 00:01:31 been this drastik of a change so I want
00:01:30 00:01:34 to discuss this because there's gonna be
00:01:31 00:01:36 a lot of filius who has websites that
00:01:34 00:01:38 are dependent on Amazon's affiliate
00:01:36 00:01:41 program and I'm going to show you some
00:01:38 00:01:44 ways how you can kind of adapt and move
00:01:41 00:01:46 forward without Amazon cuz you from the
00:01:44 00:01:48 looks of it you be prepared that there's
00:01:46 00:01:50 gonna be no more Amazon to program in
00:01:48 00:01:53 the near future guys ok let's take a
00:01:50 00:01:56 look at the changes ok so effective
00:01:53 00:02:00 April 21st 2020 Amazon is reducing the
00:01:56 00:02:03 amount of categories from 13 to 8 these
00:02:00 00:02:06 categories are like the broad categories
00:02:03 00:02:08 of the Commission's for each section so
00:02:06 00:02:11 I'll show you on the charts in a second
00:02:08 00:02:14 but they have had a lot of categories in
00:02:11 00:02:17 different rates right and now that huge
00:02:14 00:02:20 list is shrunk to only eat categories
00:02:17 00:02:23 and so the Commissioner rates are going
00:02:20 00:02:26 from they used to have 1 to 10 percent
00:02:23 00:02:31 commission rate and now there's only 2
00:02:26 00:02:36 commission rates 1% and 3% Wow
00:02:31 00:02:38 so now why did this change happen well
00:02:36 00:02:40 we're never going in
00:02:38 00:02:43 because Amazon never comes up and tells
00:02:40 00:02:44 you the email that is sent is always oh
00:02:43 00:02:47 of course
00:02:44 00:02:49 they do make sure that you're okay
00:02:47 00:02:51 during this pandemic that we're living
00:02:49 00:02:53 in and so they start off with that email
00:02:51 00:02:55 I hope you are safe but I'm going to
00:02:53 00:02:57 take away all your Commission's now is
00:02:55 00:02:59 the next census so there's no
00:02:57 00:03:02 explanation from Amazon why they're
00:02:59 00:03:04 slashing so the next thing is that okay
00:03:02 00:03:07 we are in a pandemic and they were going
00:03:04 00:03:09 to only ship essential products first
00:03:07 00:03:11 and only concentrate on selling
00:03:09 00:03:13 essential products so maybe that's the
00:03:11 00:03:15 reason why they're slashing because
00:03:13 00:03:18 they're only focusing on that maybe
00:03:15 00:03:20 there's not enough money to go around
00:03:18 00:03:23 but I also hear that they're having the
00:03:20 00:03:26 biggest highest sales ever so is
00:03:23 00:03:28 definitely not just essential goods
00:03:26 00:03:31 because I myself have been shopping on
00:03:28 00:03:34 Amazon during this time damage and and
00:03:31 00:03:35 thief is shipping everything even though
00:03:34 00:03:38 it was supposed to be shipped a month
00:03:35 00:03:42 later I still get it within a week okay
00:03:38 00:03:47 so they are very very busy and this
00:03:42 00:03:50 problem is probably the reason why the
00:03:47 00:03:53 program the Philip program for Amazon is
00:03:50 00:03:56 shrinking to nearly nothing so I just
00:03:53 00:03:59 want to go through the charts here so on
00:03:56 00:04:03 the left side here this chart right here
00:03:59 00:04:06 down this way this is the old chart okay
00:04:03 00:04:10 so you see that there are 13 different
00:04:06 00:04:11 rates here I don't count this zero part
00:04:10 00:04:14 because obviously you don't earn
00:04:11 00:04:17 anything on gift cards but there are 13
00:04:14 00:04:21 other rates here okay now look at this
00:04:17 00:04:26 on from April 21st forward you have only
00:04:21 00:04:29 eight lines with only one and 3% are you
00:04:26 00:04:32 kidding the Amazon so the worst thing is
00:04:29 00:04:36 that they even took out this last part
00:04:32 00:04:41 guys this last part Wow
00:04:36 00:04:45 all other calories cut
00:04:41 00:04:50 so you're literally just left with these
00:04:45 00:04:55 categories here to promote guys so when
00:04:50 00:04:57 this this all category this is pretty
00:04:55 00:04:59 much everything else on the freakin
00:04:57 00:05:04 platform and now they're taking that all
00:04:59 00:05:09 away so what is left you have home and
00:05:04 00:05:12 home home stuff and then you have music
00:05:09 00:05:15 stuff music and beauty and some business
00:05:12 00:05:20 supplies here you have still outdoor
00:05:15 00:05:22 stuff you have groceries sports sports
00:05:20 00:05:25 that's not bad to have sports still
00:05:22 00:05:29 there baby products that's good and
00:05:25 00:05:32 health and personal care but 1% and the
00:05:29 00:05:35 Amazon fresh which is their groceries at
00:05:32 00:05:38 one percent I mean who's gonna tok
00:05:35 00:05:41 about groceries on their blog like
00:05:38 00:05:44 really so let's take to get away like
00:05:41 00:05:49 clothing so that's gone they've taken
00:05:44 00:05:53 away all these devices digital music and
00:05:49 00:05:55 handmade digital videos it's not the way
00:05:53 00:05:57 a lot of stuff guys they took away all
00:05:55 00:06:00 their own Amazon products and then
00:05:57 00:06:02 electronics all the electronics are gone
00:06:00 00:06:05 I mean hey you I mean they didn't have
00:06:02 00:06:10 great rates before either but then now
00:06:05 00:06:14 it's a zero so that's that's how it goes
00:06:10 00:06:16 so I mean both of the changes guys and
00:06:14 00:06:20 it's drastik and if you had a website
00:06:16 00:06:22 that dependent on this program to make
00:06:20 00:06:25 you a lot of money every month your
00:06:22 00:06:27 revenues gonna go way down because of
00:06:25 00:06:29 this especially if you don't have a
00:06:27 00:06:32 website that toks about any of these
00:06:29 00:06:35 categories that's left here okay if you
00:06:32 00:06:38 don't have any of this stuff here you
00:06:35 00:06:40 are doomed what can you do to move
00:06:38 00:06:43 forward so how to move forward you can
00:06:40 00:06:47 stik with Amazon if your website has
00:06:43 00:06:49 those categories you know that are left
00:06:47 00:06:51 okay if you have one of those eight
00:06:49 00:06:54 categories that's left then
00:06:51 00:06:57 you may be able to stik around but even
00:06:54 00:06:59 with that I would still use some of
00:06:57 00:07:01 these other options that I'm going to
00:06:59 00:07:03 list out here because it looks like
00:07:01 00:07:05 they're probably gone like kill the
00:07:03 00:07:09 program it's just that they don't want
00:07:05 00:07:11 to kill it right now because everyone is
00:07:09 00:07:15 going through so much so I think they're
00:07:11 00:07:18 just still skinning us slowly here okay
00:07:15 00:07:20 so I think you should plan that Amazon
00:07:18 00:07:24 affiliate program will be gone in the
00:07:20 00:07:25 near future so stiking with Amazon is
00:07:24 00:07:26 very risky
00:07:25 00:07:29 if that's what you want to stik with
00:07:26 00:07:31 the next thing you should do if you have
00:07:29 00:07:34 a category that is eliminated or
00:07:31 00:07:38 planning to get away from Amazon is
00:07:34 00:07:40 finding new affiliate programs pronto so
00:07:38 00:07:45 there are many other programs still okay
00:07:40 00:07:47 so CJ is an affiliate network and share
00:07:45 00:07:49 a sale is also an affiliate network what
00:07:47 00:07:53 that means is that it has a whole bunch
00:07:49 00:07:56 of companies in there that have a fillip
00:07:53 00:08:00 programs they run the affiliate programs
00:07:56 00:08:02 for those companies and what happens is
00:08:00 00:08:04 that when you go into these two networks
00:08:02 00:08:06 you will be looking up the products that
00:08:04 00:08:09 you want then look at the company that
00:08:06 00:08:12 you want and then applying directly to
00:08:09 00:08:14 the companies so sometimes the companies
00:08:12 00:08:15 will approve your instantly or you may
00:08:14 00:08:18 have to go through an approval process
00:08:15 00:08:21 or you could go through the brands or
00:08:18 00:08:24 companies directly which is the private
00:08:21 00:08:26 affiliate programs so let's say Apple
00:08:24 00:08:28 Walmart Target you could go directly to
00:08:26 00:08:30 them and they have their own affiliate
00:08:28 00:08:33 program you definitely need to find new
00:08:30 00:08:35 affiliate programs to replace your
00:08:33 00:08:38 Amazon links and everything else I mean
00:08:35 00:08:41 I can't imagine the links that you guys
00:08:38 00:08:43 have to update I'm pretty happy I don't
00:08:41 00:08:46 I'm not in that situation right now with
00:08:43 00:08:48 having an Amazon site I can't imagine
00:08:46 00:08:50 the revenue you guys going to be losing
00:08:48 00:08:54 with this so the other option that you
00:08:50 00:08:56 can can add to your website is used CPA
00:08:54 00:08:58 marketing so CPA marketing is cost per
00:08:56 00:09:00 action and so you're not even having
00:08:58 00:09:02 your visitors to buy anything
00:09:00 00:09:05 it's all about signing up and doing
00:09:02 00:09:07 some kind of action for them so as I
00:09:05 00:09:09 just submitting an email address or
00:09:07 00:09:13 something like that and you get paid you
00:09:09 00:09:16 could be paid either from $1 to $0.50 to
00:09:13 00:09:20 like $3 or $5 or sometimes even a lot
00:09:16 00:09:23 more it depends on what it is but so you
00:09:20 00:09:24 could do something like that offer
00:09:23 00:09:26 something to sign up for some kind of
00:09:24 00:09:29 offer and then you can have another
00:09:26 00:09:31 revenue source without having making any
00:09:29 00:09:34 sales so that's a great option the next
00:09:31 00:09:36 thing is get away from physical products
00:09:34 00:09:39 because you can make a lot more money
00:09:36 00:09:41 with digital products I mean I
00:09:39 00:09:43 understand if there's certain niches out
00:09:41 00:09:46 there that are hard to find digital
00:09:43 00:09:48 products for but there are also a lot of
00:09:46 00:09:51 niches that have a bunch of digital
00:09:48 00:09:52 products that you can so you need to
00:09:51 00:09:54 think outside the box
00:09:52 00:09:58 go on Etsy or go on some kind of online
00:09:54 00:10:02 course platform like udemy or Skillshare
00:09:58 00:10:05 calm those places will have tons of
00:10:02 00:10:07 courses for you guys to promote so these
00:10:05 00:10:10 online course platforms have multiple
00:10:07 00:10:12 multiple multiple categories so you
00:10:10 00:10:14 should be able to find an online course
00:10:12 00:10:17 to promote on there for your website
00:10:14 00:10:19 okay so you never know you may be able
00:10:17 00:10:21 to find several and then you can get a
00:10:19 00:10:23 rigor income that way if you keep
00:10:21 00:10:24 promoting digital courses or something
00:10:23 00:10:27 like that
00:10:24 00:10:29 another option is seeing if you can find
00:10:27 00:10:33 some kind of membership site for your
00:10:29 00:10:35 niche and see if your visitors or
00:10:33 00:10:37 audience will find it useful to sign up
00:10:35 00:10:38 for some kind of membership site like
00:10:37 00:10:41 that and that would be even better
00:10:38 00:10:42 because then you'll be earning recurring
00:10:41 00:10:43 commissions for the membership
00:10:42 00:10:46 subscriptions that they'll be paying
00:10:43 00:10:49 month after month so that is one of the
00:10:46 00:10:51 best ways to earn I that's how I earn my
00:10:49 00:10:54 affiliate Commission's the fifth way
00:10:51 00:10:57 that you can add to your website and add
00:10:54 00:10:59 another revenue stream is using your own
00:10:57 00:11:02 product so you can actually create your
00:10:59 00:11:03 own digital product which is even easier
00:11:02 00:11:05 so I'm not even toking about you know
00:11:03 00:11:07 creating your own physical product
00:11:05 00:11:09 that's gonna be hard I've been there
00:11:07 00:11:10 okay it's hard and you have to wear a
00:11:09 00:11:14 lot of hats and area
00:11:10 00:11:17 and so I don't recommend that unless you
00:11:14 00:11:20 have you know the resources for that but
00:11:17 00:11:22 if you do like an a digital product it's
00:11:20 00:11:25 totally viable so you can make your own
00:11:22 00:11:27 online course for your niche that you
00:11:25 00:11:29 can sell directly on your website and
00:11:27 00:11:30 you can make a lot more money that way
00:11:29 00:11:33 actually
00:11:30 00:11:35 then affiliate commissions so the sixth
00:11:33 00:11:39 is about advertising so if you haven't
00:11:35 00:11:42 put advertising on your website this is
00:11:39 00:11:45 a true passive income because you just
00:11:42 00:11:47 me a set up and you will get automatik
00:11:45 00:11:49 income just from the traffic that you
00:11:47 00:11:51 get on your site so if you have a very
00:11:49 00:11:54 high traffic site you should be earning
00:11:51 00:11:55 ad revenue on there for sure so one more
00:11:54 00:11:57 thing I want to mention is that if
00:11:55 00:11:59 you're new to affiliate marketing and
00:11:57 00:12:02 you haven't been able to get much
00:11:59 00:12:04 results I urge you to check out this one
00:12:02 00:12:08 site okay I urge you to check out this
00:12:04 00:12:10 site and what this site is about is
00:12:08 00:12:12 about teaching you how to build your
00:12:10 00:12:15 affiliate marketing website properly
00:12:12 00:12:18 okay so if you already have an affiliate
00:12:15 00:12:21 website it's great it's fine and you can
00:12:18 00:12:23 use that and continue to use that but
00:12:21 00:12:26 why you're not getting results with your
00:12:23 00:12:30 website is because you haven't done it
00:12:26 00:12:33 properly okay you're obviously not doing
00:12:30 00:12:35 the correct on-page SEO or occupation
00:12:33 00:12:38 SEO or know how to use the keywords
00:12:35 00:12:41 properly to bring traffic to your
00:12:38 00:12:44 website on its own so if you were to do
00:12:41 00:12:46 it properly you will be actually giving
00:12:44 00:12:49 tons and tons of visitors to your
00:12:46 00:12:51 website and earning a full-time online
00:12:49 00:12:53 income from your website so that's the
00:12:51 00:12:56 potential of having an affiliate
00:12:53 00:13:00 marketing business and having your own
00:12:56 00:13:03 website that uses this model so what the
00:13:00 00:13:06 affiliate is the training platform for
00:13:03 00:13:09 building affiliate websites and in fact
00:13:06 00:13:11 you get a free website when you come on
00:13:09 00:13:14 here because you get to start for free
00:13:11 00:13:16 but you need to upgrade to premium if
00:13:14 00:13:19 you want the entire training of course
00:13:16 00:13:21 with your free account though you do get
00:13:19 00:13:22 the first level of the training for free
00:13:21 00:13:25 which has
00:13:22 00:13:28 lessons in it and in those 10 and in
00:13:25 00:13:30 those 10 lessons you're gonna get a free
00:13:28 00:13:32 website already that will be live on the
00:13:30 00:13:34 Internet after you finish those 10
00:13:32 00:13:37 lessons so once you upgrade to premium
00:13:34 00:13:39 you don't get four more levels of
00:13:37 00:13:41 lessons and it's very crucial you go
00:13:39 00:13:42 through them okay the rest of the
00:13:41 00:13:45 lessons are the ones that would teach
00:13:42 00:13:48 you how to drive traffic automatikally
00:13:45 00:13:50 with your website on its own so that it
00:13:48 00:13:53 can make money by itself okay
