You will see your unique associate ID there You’re pretty much set up Now you’ve applied And you’ve been accepted except for one little thing is that they are going to require that you make at least Three sales within the next 60 days But I’m gonna show you how to do that and actually have another video that talks in depth about how to do that Rather quickly, so we don’t have to worry about our payment and tax information for now. We’ll just hit later You’re gonna want to fill that out afterwards So here we are on the Amazon Associates dashboard. This is kind of your quick overview of everything You’re gonna be able to see when you log in Right here You’re gonna have a quick Earnings overview for the last 30 days and you’re gonna see your total fees your total bounties and your clicks So your fees are gonna be how much you actually made Bounties are a special program and I’ll talk about those in a minute and then your total clicks so people that are actually clicking your links and then if you go over here You’ll see a summary for the month which will show your total items shipped your earnings in your total order item So when someone orders an item, it’ll show up here But you actually don’t make commission until that product ships. So that will show total items shipped right there And then last you’ll be you’ll see your conversion rate. So for however many Clips you got how many of those? Equated into actual commissions and then you can even go into a full report Okay, so let’s start going through some of these the first is product links So this is how you’re gonna actually link your stuff and I’m going to show you a quicker way to do it But you can come in to your dashboard here And actually search by product code if you want to so Let’s say you wanted to promote, you know this type of camera here. All you would select is get link it’s gonna pop up with a Little you know dialog box here that’s gonna have a link. It’s this is a very cumbersome way to do it I don’t recommend this What I do recommend is that if you actually go to tools and you go to site stripe site shrimp is really cool Because what will happen is when you’re on your Amazon account Let’s actually go over here and we’ll just go to amazon.com and then you search for let’s say coolers Let’s say you’re talking about some type of coolers and you want to recommend one Ok, when you click on the cooler, you’re gonna see at the top here you have Amazon Associates site stripes So when you signed up you now have this to where you can easily Get a text blank an image or even text plus image, but let’s just do a text link Okay, so we’ll select that there and there you go. That’s what you can put into your blog at the bottom of your youtube description Where people are going to be able to click and go over to? Your to this product and it’s now tagging it to you so that you’re going to commission whatever they buy You can do a full link if you want or a short link So this is Amazon Associates site stripe really utilize this because it’s a real easy way to get links fast The other way is very long cumbersome, and I don’t even really use it Unless I’m doing some specific stuff. So That’s product links. We won’t worry about banners or native shopping ads. You can link to any page on Amazon as well so if you decide you want to link to the search results You can do that by entering keywords, so you can actually link to a page of search results on Amazon So, you know that could be kind of cool too. So let’s talk about the Amazon bounty program What amazon has their own bounty program you’ll get a few sales from this every now and then? But if we click here and see all bounties, you can actually see what’s available Here, so if someone clicks through one ear links and ends up You know signing up for prime pantry. You’re gonna get three dollars If they sign up for a free unlimited free trial of Amazon I’m not really sure what that one is, but you’re gonna get three bucks Twitch Prime three dollars, I think honorable is down here. I don’t really see it right now Oh there it is audible five dollars for a 30-day free trial and then if they sign up for a direct gold membership It’s ten dollars bounty is gonna be be usually a very small percentage of your signups unless you have posts directed To those types of programs. So the one thing I want to show you which is really really cool here is Being able to use one link now a lot of people sign up for the Amazon Associates program Just in the United States and that’s fine But the problem is when you start building a blog you’re gonna get traffic from overseas Maybe from the UK from Canada and other places Well when people click on your links and you’re only signed up in the US They’re gonna go to a us-based Amazon page where the product may not be available in their country The cool thing is that with one link. What you can do is you can link all your accounts so if someone does end up coming from Someone’s searching on or lands on your site in Canada clicks your link it’s gonna direct them to the Canadian Amazon page with those suppliers and actually being able to Make a commission in their own currency. So I know it sounds a little bit complicated. But here’s what you actually do You’re going to link your accounts. So that process that I showed you in the beginning with the Amazon Associates a u.s Program you’re gonna do for a number of different ones so if you hit click to link here because this is the first part of the process you’re gonna see you can get Traffic or you can get commissions from the UK France Japan and all you’re gonna do is you’re gonna go down here and click each one of these and this is this is a process So, you know, maybe take a day and sign up for a couple of these do it the next day It’s gonna say don’t have a United Kingdom account You’re gonna click sign up here and you’re gonna go through the process once you get your store ID with your UK account You’re gonna link it here and you’ll hit link store. Ok, after you do all that. It’s really easy you’re gonna copy this code put it on your blog your website usually in the footer and It’s gonna link all your accounts to one so that whenever somebody from any other country that were listed Clicks on your links. You’re still gonna make Commission in their currency and it it’s really it’s actually really cool You are gonna notice a bump in your earnings because you are getting you know traffic from other from other countries, so Definitely set up one link as soon as you can because it’s really it’s really beneficial and you will see an uptick in Earnings. Ok. So the next thing we’ll do is we’ll go over to reports here You’re gonna get a deep dive into your earnings as you can see the last 30 days you can go back to last year this year and you can even Download these reports and export them and then you have some resource centers You know advertising fee schedule the thing that we were talking about earlier You can click on there and see what the current advertising fee schedules are and they actually even break down all The bounty programs in here as well. So this is pretty much the back end of the Amazon affiliate program It’s really it’s really easy to use and once you get in there and start getting clicks and sales You’re gonna understand a little bit more You know, it’s one thing to actually show you here, but once you get in there and start tinkering with it yourself You’re gonna get it So I’m going through editing this video and I notice I did not show you guys how to set up individual tracking IDs Which I think is really important, especially if you’re blogging and have a lot of different posts and want to track What is getting the best? Conversions so you’re gonna go over here to your account and go to manage your tracking IDs and you’ll see that your main tracking ID Here is the website nerd is the site that I actually signed up with Okay, what we can do is we can go and add an extra tracking ID So say we have a post about the best yoga pants you can see I’ve created a tracking ID here But you would just go to add tracking ID type in whatever identifier you want maybe the name of the post and then hit Create and it’ll set up free there. So now you have this tracking ID. And what you can do is when you’re going out and looking for Yoga pants to put on maybe this guide that you’ve created on site stripe. You can actually hit get link Click text and now you have that option to apply any Commission’s through this tracking ID So later on when you’re actually filtering through your Commission’s you can filter through tracking IDs and see Exactly. What? Posts got the best Conversions are or are converting the highest so it’s really key if you’re going into this start separating tracking IDs and attaching them to posts so that you can have a greater understanding of what is actually working with your affiliate marketing okay, as promised I was gonna show you after the tutorial how to make money with Amazon affiliate marketing how to use the Program to make a little bit and a lot, okay And I’ve got two great examples of both of these here to kind of get your wheels turning I actually go into a lot more depth on this on my video on how to make money blogging So check up on the info cards and look at that I go through an exact strategy that I used to make my first thousand dollars with a blog so if you want to see that check that check that video but I’m gonna show you right here. Just an overview in two really good Examples of how to make a little bit and a lot so let’s start with just recommending products casually to make a little bit Amazon Associates Program. So if you’re not familiar with Peter McKinnon, he is a really big youtuber Photography youtuber and has a lot of great videos helping photographers but if you go through and just click one of his videos, I want to show you how he casually He still mix a lot. I mean his videos get a ton of views So even casually he’s making pretty good money from the Amazon Associates program But you can see in his description all these Amazon links. You see all these right here for his You know photo time-lapse camera and if you actually click over which we’ll do right here You can see there. It goes right to it shows his camera $2,300 camera that he’s I think the Commission on cameras is four and a half percent so you can do the math on that And doing looking at how many views he gets four hundred thousand on this video He’s probably making a healthy Income just casually putting these in the description here So you can use this by doing the same thing in your blog posts, you know Maybe casually recommending products and whatnot and you’re gonna make good, you know decent Side money in doing this and the bigger your blog is obviously the more following that you have the more you’re gonna be able to Casually recommend and make money But the next thing I want to show you is how to do it and make a ton of money Okay, and this is a really good example here So if we go to Google and we type in best Wireless earbuds and you can do this in pretty much whatever your niche is as well, you know Maybe you’re a stay-at-home mom and you like journaling, you know? You can find products and do best of type Posts and what this does is it really hones in on what people are searching for? So you can see here just for this example best wireless earbuds These huge sites here like seen it are jumping onto this Because they know just how powerful it is and how much you can make so see net is on here and they review You know all the best wireless Earbuds and you can see they all go to Amazon so they are in the Amazon It’s program doing Amazon affiliate marketing Making Commission’s off of this and again that video that I have that goes into depth on a strategy. I Show you how to kind of get more and find more low competition obviously best wireless earbuds It’s super competitive when you’ve got sites like C net and PC Mag all going and shooting for those terms But hopefully you kind of get an idea Here about what is possible with doing this strategy to make a little bit and to make a lot. Okay There’s two different ways. You can do it. I see a lot of bloggers Online and youtubers who are wondering. You know, how come I’m not making that much with the Amazon Associates program Well, the problem is that you’re not building affiliate content, right So you’re not getting content in there? That people are actually looking for and when you can do this type of stuff and look for you know, maybe best sewing-machine People are looking for this stuff People are looking for these types of keywords. So when you actually have a post Breaking down the best sewing machines people are hyper focused in in a buying mindset Okay, so hopefully that really helps you guys out.
