Hey everyone. In this -Step by step guide for beginners video, I wanted to show you how you could set up the amazon affiliate program. So you got to go on Amazon and you got a set up for that our affiliate program and then you will get a special link that you could use for all their products to put it on your YouTube videos, on your website, and every time someone clicks on that link it will take you to Amazon but it will take it to that special link that you set up through your affiliate and you could get paid a percentage of that sale from Amazon and the duration of the time that person spends on Amazon you will get paid that affiliate from all the sales, not just a product that led them to Amazon so for example if you’re talking about a lens or a camera and it leads someone to amazon.com let’s say they don’t buy that camera, but they browse around and buy something else, you get an affiliate commission from that sale.
Now if it’s your first time on this channel, I make tech tutorials just like this one five times a week, so please consider subscribing.
e ways I do it is through social network and Through blogs and SEO I’m gonna go down.
Before I jump on the computer and show you the process of signing up for an affiliate, I want to make one more comment about it. If you don’t make any sales within six months of signing up so if you sign up today and you don’t make any sales for six months at the time of this recording Amazon actually doesn’t approve of you being part of the program. So make sure you have something set up make sure you have a little bit of following on a YouTube channel or a website before you sign up, so you didn’t get kicked out from amazon’s program. I’m talking about the experience because when I first launched my youtube channel on the very first day I sign up for the Amazon affiliate program and six months later even though I had made close to a hundred videos I still didn’t have any sales or maybe I had one I think you need a minimum of three when I was doing it and they kicked me out of the program so this process I’m gonna show you how to do it again from scratch.
I sign up for the program, and hopefully, you could get at least a handful of cells in the first six months So you could stay with the program and not get rejected by Amazon alright.
