How To Make Money With Amazon As An Affiliate Marketer Working From Home With Your Own Online Business
Amazon Associate Action Plan
Once you reach a certain age you cannot help but wish for time to slow down. I personally want it to slow down so I can catch my breath to reflect on what happened last year and so far this year. But there’s no rest for the wicked as they say and the devil finds work for idle hands, so onwards and upwards.
At the beginning of this year I could see a clear path to success and the many achievements that lay in store for me, and because of this level of clarity I believe that I had myself set up for success. I do not have any scientific data to back this up but my gut instinct told me that I would be ahead of most internet marketers that planned to make a living from the internet during the year.
Why? Most never plan and set themselves up to make no money or worse, set themselves up to react to everything around them and at the end of the year they have little or nothing at all to show for it.
Here are the plans I laid out at the beginning of the year to promote Amazon products.
Setting Up A Promotional Calendar
This is not a marketing calendar or business plan. This step for me is a very specific tangible activity that is designed to give me a clear outcome for the whole year. In my apartment I have a whiteboard hanging on the wall, and on it I have the 12 months of the year.
For each month I have very specific products that I will promote. For example in January I start of by promoting Valentines Day gifts. Actually I started at the end of last year. At the end of January I have “Mothers Day” on my calendar. I have flowers, gift bags, jewelry, etc on my list of promotional items.
In April and May the season kicks off with weddings, but in every month I have a list of products as gifts such as cameras, TV’s, electronic goods and toys, etc that I will promote. I have very specific makes and model numbers of the items.
This calendar keeps me on track, and slightly ahead of the game. It keeps me focused and gives me a mental checklist of items that are going to earn me money this year.
If you’re struggling to figure out what products to promote and how to build out your calendar year, get hold of a copy of Consumer Magazine. In their January edition they lay out all the top selling items that are going to be hot in each month of the year. Also round about September there is a list of what they reckon are going to be the big sellers for Christmas gifts. This is a great list of products to kick start your Amazon affiliate business. If you have just these pieces of information you have already set yourself up for success.
Daily Rituals For Making Money
If I had the option of getting out of bed every day and figuring out what to promote I would probably get nothing done. Left to my own devices, I would be busy but not productive. Early on I figured out that to succeed I needed to schedule my time.
I do not mean 8am-10am, promote Amazon products. No. I mean I had a detailed checklist for my time slots. So if one time slot is 8 am to 10 am, it would be something like this:
• 8:00-8:30 Research for new products
• 8:30-9:00 Write product review
• 9:00 9:15 Submit reviews for a blog and upload with images
• 9:15-:10:00 Review previous days earnings, review results
Find More Amazon Products To Promote
With the time I have left I try to find topics to write more product reviews. It would be detailed in a form of a checklist. I do this because I know what needs to get done. As a result of creating productive time slots and scheduling them with specific activities, I am productive during the day.
It all comes down to daily planning and more importantly carrying out what is on the plan
I realize your plan may be different. You may be new at internet marketing. You may have a full-time or part-time job, or family commitments so your time could be limited.
Therefore, planning out your productive time slots whether its 2 hours or 4 or 8 is probably the one piece of advice I can give you to start you on the path to success as an Affiliate for Amazon or indeed any other internet company or network.
Another piece of advice I can give you is to look at page: Getting Started
