How To Create the Best Amazon Affiliate Store

July 3, 2015

Amazon affiliate stores are available ready made and ready to buy, but maybe you would rather create them yourself. But it can be confusing with a huge range of website types, styles, plugins and themes available, as well as conflicting advice from ‘so called experts’ as to how to setup your website and what works. So which option should you choose, and how do you make sure your affiliate website brings in plenty of visitors, along with the highest commissions? Read on and you will find out.

Amazon affiliate stores can be created by yourself if you have the know-how, using standard HTML design or a CMS such as wordpress (or you can buy one ready made). Once your website is completed with amazon links within the content, you hope that visitors will come and start clicking on your Amazon affiliate links.

You own the websites and have full control over them, and they can make you lots of money – if they are set-up correctly. When a customer visits your website store and then checks out an item, or hits the buy it button, a small cookie is placed on their computer telling Amazon that you sent that particular customer. Any purchase that visitor makes from Amazon will result in a commission paid to you.

These website stores can be very easy and quick to create and set-up, but these usually end with little or minor success. Alternatively they can be more difficult and time consuming to create, and involve more work, but these sites will bring much better results and stand the test of time. The decision to go the easy route, or put in some work will ultimately be the difference between long-term success or short-term failure.

Reasons To Become an Amazon Affiliate

But why become an Amazon affiliate? There are many other ways to monetize a website, so what makes Amazon the best choice? Well here are some of the reasons why you really want to become an Amazon Affiliate:-

Trusted – Amazon is probably the most trusted shopping brand worldwide. Everone has heard about and brought products from Amazon, this loyalty and trust converts online browsers to commited buyers.

Unlimited commission – When you have an Amazon website/store set-up then commission is paid to you on every item purchased by visitors to your site. Amazon pay from 4-8.5% on items which can be quite a lot for high ticket items or big sellers.

Multiple purchases – People usually buy more than a single item when you send them to Amazon, and you earn a commission on whatever they buy. And this applies whether they end up buying what you sent them to or not. Many people load up their cart with numerous items so commissions can add up.

Easy integration – Amazon provides some good tools and widgets to help you integrate the sales channel into your website.

Vast product/niche selection – The Amazon marketplace has an amazing number of products suitable for any taste or niche. You can choose from gardening, electronics, virtual reality devices, diet products, hair care etc. etc. There is such a huge number that any interest is catered for and you WILL find something relevant to your target audience.

Building your Amazon Store

DIY Route

astore builder

The easy method is by simply using the amazon associate astore builder, this is a short snippet of code you paste onto your website pages and will result in Amazon products showing. But this technique is not going to bring you a lot of success unless you already have a massive trraffic base to send to it as it will never rank organically. The reason is that an astore is simply an iframe that links to Amazon meaning that none of the content is actually hosted by you. And that means that none of the search engines will rank you for any keywords and no free (organic) traffic will ever reach your website/store.

Create your own website

If you want more control of your store then you can buy a domain name, install wordpress, decide on a niche, choose and customize a theme, and use any of the free plugins or paid plugins that are available to populate your website with products.
