Amazon can be a great source of income when it comes to affiliate marketing. There are whopping amount of sales happening per day on amazon and amazon affiliates take a good amount of money from it.
Good thing with amazon affiliate program is they pay commission of any thing bought by your referral in a day. So it doesn’t matter what you are promoting you will still hold accountable for your referrals and their purchases.
There are many WordPress plugins which claims to be useful for amazon affiliates but here is a list of plugins which you must have if you are planning to earn money from amazon affiliate sites.
This is not a WordPress plugin but a must have software if you want to succeed with amazon affiliate program. It really makes it easy to find niche which can be optimized for Amazon Affiliates.
This software will not only give you an insight on the niche but also gives you details of the competition and brand details, also let you know the available domain name for the niche.
If you do not want this plugin than you need Market Samurai to do your market research, though I will prefer this plugin for Amazon related research.
You can research the keyword and can check the competition for that keyword , after that you will have a choice to find a domain name with the suffix of review, sale, discount etc keyword to your brand name.
Mike is a single man army and takes some time to respond to support tickets, if you have some issue with the product. But once setup this product works really great,
2. Azon Theme
Another one, which is not a plugin but a must have for your WordPress Site. Azon Theme is created for Amazon Affiliate sites and makes it really easy to add Amazon product related feature.
The theme is packed with features like star ratings, Buy now buttons, review buttons, social sharing, custom navigation and sidebars, video support and featured posts and images.
You will have a built in support for review video’s and custom colors to design your site. This is one of the theme which can make Amazon Site creation easy and fun.
One of the bad thing about Amazon Affiliate program is that they only retain the cookies for 24 hours. So your referral has to purchase within that time frame in order to get you a commission.
If your referral add the product in the cart the cookies will be extended to 90 days, which will give you more chance to get the conversion and earn commission.
This plugin does that for you and it increase the cookies life by adding product to the cart rather that sending your readers to the product page.
The plugin works with many other amazon plugins and extend the functionality by using the Amazon API.
WP Zon Builder is a plugin which can create help in building an Amazon Affiliate site. It can find the products and brands from the admin panel and gets you all the products.
Not only that, it can draft a post for you and can post them periodically on your blog. I am not a big fan of auto blogging, so I always suggest to save the posts in Draft and edit them before publishing.
You have an option of creating a template for your posts, so you can create automatic posts according to the layout of your blog. It can generate multiple post at once so you will never be short of products.
ReviewAzon is another good plugin for Amazon Affiliate sites, it can also find the products for you from the WordPress admin panel and create posts.
It can create automatic review link for your products, custom post fields from Amazon data, SEO meta data, tabbed option display and custom display button.
The plugin is very powerful in terms of importing the product and creating posts for those products. It can check for duplicate posts and you would not worry about posting the same product again.
If you are looking to earn some money from Amazon Affiliate program than you should look for these plugins. Amazon Affiliates can earn a lot of money with the right set of tools.
So which one’s you use to promote your offers?
