Success as Amazon affiliate
There is no doubt, that being affiliated with Amazon can bring you in a serious amount of reoccurring income. But let's face it, just those entrepreneurs will succeed, who really do understand how to optimize their sales strategies. You might have signed up as affiliate at the worlds most popular online shop because you have bought a product for yourself, you might own a website or you simply invited some of your friends to join and let them take a look of what Amazon has to offer. That's how the most affiliates start making a little side income, not much but still it was good enough to buy one or 2 more Items just by using the commission earned. Others are owners of websites and thought it might be a great source to finance their server costs. They display Amazon products instead or in additional to Google ADsense advertising. Well that works, but is it a real business already?
Just to give you some insights: My wife and I do offer private accommodation here in the Philippines and I have set up a website in different languages and of course, guests which are coming to us are also interested in travel books - more specific travel guides, to find out which other places might be interesting to discover. Of course I have integrated a page which leads them to travel guides sold at Amazon. This little peace of site made me sell 64 travel books, just as I said before, nice sideline income but not really a business.
