Getting Started As An Amazon Affiliate by Mathlew Burkett

Getting Started as an Amazon Affiliate by Mathlew BurkettGetting Started as an Amazon Affiliate by Mathlew Burkett
Okay, so this isn't a book about blogging, obviously. However, if you would like to earn a commission from promoting products on your blog (without carrying any stock), then this new guide should be of great interest to you.

Getting Started as an Amazon Affiliate by Matthew Burkett is a low-cost Kindle e-book that is aimed at anyone who has little knowledge of the Amazon Associates program, and needs advice on what it is, how to add it to your blog, and how to generate sales and earn money.

Although this guide is relatively short at 18 pages, there is a lot of essential advice crammed into those pages. The writing style is clear and concise, and is also jargon-free. It's also a pleasant change to read a guide in which the author does not waste time by harping on about how he has gone from rags to riches and is making £1000's per month.

Right from the first chapter, you are provided with relevant information that will be of use to you. Some chapters are a little brief. For instance, I could have added many more excellent reasons for joining the program in the chapter Why Choose the Amazon Affiliate Program?

The chapters on generating sales are particularly useful and will enable you to craft your pages to maximize the conversion rate, which means more sales from your blog.

However, as the guide is aimed at the beginner, I would like to have seen more information on using the Amazon site stripe and widgets such as Native Ads, and also how to add the HTML code to your site, along with a few diagrams.

Nonetheless, any newbie to affiliate marketing should find this guide of great use, and given the low price, it's certainly worth the asking price.

Although some chapters could be a little more comprehensive, if you're after a quick and easy guide which covers most of the essentials, then this one is ideal for getting you started as an Amazon affiliate.

Mark's rating:


Solid, jargon-free advice
Ideal for affiliate marketing novices
Good advice on generating sales
It's cheap!


Lack of info on using Amazon Associates site stripe and native ads
Some chapters are a little sparse

Why Choose the Amazon Affiliate Program? Some good reasons why you should join.

How Much Can You Earn? Although that is an impossible question for the author to truly answer, he does outline details of what commissions you can expect to earn.

How Do You Get Started? Includes a useful list of links to Amazon's global programs, allowing you to earn from products sold not just in your own country.

Knowing Your Niche - The Essentials. Features the best ways to promote products so you can earn big.

Writing to Generate Sales. Details the best methods for creating a page that sells, without a hard sell which will be off-putting to potential customers. This is probably the best chapter in the book.

Linking Strategies for Conversions. Includes effective methods for obtaining extra sales.

The Do's of Amazon Affiliate Marketing. Includes the sections Be specific when using keywords, Use alternative traffic sources, Trade Amazon Associates referral links, Use lists and Recommend more products.

Affiliate Marketing 2019 for Beginners

Blogging Made Easy by Amen Sharma, Rumena Begum

Available in paperback and Kindle edition formats, Blogging Made Easy is aimed at both newbies and established bloggers, and will help you attract more visitors and increase online exposure.

It begins with a bio and case study of one of the authors, Rumena Begum, a fashion and beauty blogger based in London. There is also a case study of Katie Corio, an online fitness coach living in San Diego, although she's not listed as an author.

Okay, so there is an incredible amount of information to digest in Blogging Made Easy. However, the chapters are rather inconsistent in their depth of detail, with some areas covered comprehensively, and others just skimmed over.

There are a number of problems, too, with the freebie links no longer working, and there are a few grammatical errors, which is unacceptable from a team that are supposed to be pro bloggers. An update is needed to remove the Google + section and broken links.

This is certainly a book that newbie bloggers will find very usefu…

Affiliate Marketing Ultimate Guide 2019 - The $10,000 per Month Foolproof Method

If you wish to earn money from your blog, then you should seriously consider affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing Ultimate Guide 2019 by Ronald Roberts is a very comprehensive guide on the subject, and when I say comprehensive, I mean it!

Many chapters are huge and packed to the rafters with advice. Not all of the advice I agree with, as you will find out, but there is certainly a lot of excellent information here to digest.

The author goes into great detail about what affiliate marketing actually is, discussing the main players, how to sign-up, and which networks you can join. However, it would have been useful to have been given links to the networks from within the ebook.

Some of the affiliate networks mentioned I would not recommend. For instance, JVzoo's products are mostly terrible, making pie in the sky promises which will leave your customers very dissatisfied - as I did - which is not good for your reputation. Clickbank's products are mostly pretty similar, in th…
