Making money from Amazon is another most reliable monetization option for bloggers next to the affiliates and Adsense. Many people do not appreciate Amazon affiliate program immediately because it offers only 4% commission on every sale. But if you look it a bit more closely, the monetization opportunity is worth giving a serious look.
Why I believe Amazon works is because you are promoting physical products. Alex rightly pointed out that half of the marketting is already done because, you don’t need to convince customer. This is something just opposite to the software products. All you need to have is targeted visitors to your amazon sites to drive them up to the Amazon pages.
One reason why most people love Adsense is passive income. You set it up and forget. The program keeps earning for you. What if, there is a way out to set up an amazon site and forget and it continuously generates commission for you?
I tried a couple of Amazon Plugins for WordPress that pulls content from Amazon and creates pages automatically on my blog. WPZon Builder is really awesome in that it searches and lists the products for you to select. Creates posts or pages (as you configured) with your associate ID integrated to link to the Amazon. The best thing is it avoids duplication of products!
But today, I’d like to talk about a more recent plugin, much cheaper that WPZon Builder, works like a charm and has additional SEO benefits. Just for $17, a plugin that automate your Amazon niche site is really worth giving a try. It is WP Dollar.
I bought WP Dollar and truly wondered to see 10 PLR blogs in the bundle along with the plugin I’d bought. More surprising thing is the PLR Blog costs 97$. Haha? $97 bonus on $27 product!
Whatever! The PLR blogs are awesome and extremely easy to set up and get it go. All you need to do is upload a zip file and a script file to your server and open script from the browser. Provide details about the database, username etc and LOL the site runs! It won’t take you more than 2 minutes to install and run a blog. You can happily customize the look and feel of the blog as you wish. Check my new site Pregnancy Goods for example.
Because the blog was already running, all I needed was to install WP Dollar and create 3 or 4 Amazon Ad units, one Amazon Post Campaign and done! This made the build part of the blog a real easy.
Now what I should focus on is to write original articles to attract search engine and promote the blog a bit. Let’s see how it will perform in future, but the features it offered are truly promising.
Please read my comparison post ‘Should I buy WPZon builder or WP Dollar?” in Bivori that demonstrates how you can use this plugin and on what respect each of those two plugins are best standing.
