    Amazon is by far my most favorite affiliate platform. As you point out the commission is not great but the service and support network are absolutely outstanding. You can also find products for ANY niche with ease – the ad boxes and affiliate links are equally easy. Setting up small niche websites is a super-easy task with Amazon involved – love it!

      You are absolutely right, Chris. It’s a very easy affiliate network to work with, and with so many products to choose from, you can use it for almost any niche. And the best thing is, people love buying things on Amazon, so it’s not like you are sending them to an online shop they’ve never seen before.

    Congrats on your first Amazon sale! I am certain that it is the first of many to come.

    I stumbled upon Wealthy Affiliate a little over a month ago and am in the process of building up my website.

    As you mentioned, with affiliate marketing, the results are often cumulative, but do you find that they are also exponential? That is, as your website gains momentum and its size increases, does a post today generate more leads than a post a month ago would have?

    Wishing you continued success!

      Hi Robert,

      Yes, I think the reason why it becomes exponential is because your website starts to rank a lot better. Not just for the main keywords you are targeting, but for many other related keywords that you may not have even thought of.

      All the best,

    Amazon Associates Program is a great platform for earning money online. People just love to buy things on Amazon and they buy a lot! Don’t listen to those saying commission is low and cookies last only 24 hours. Believe me: Amazon can make you couple of thousands each month! Anyway, you have nice websites, keep up with good work!

    Congrats on your first sale, Marcus. Amazon is one of the best affiliate programs out there, in my opinion because of the fact people know about them. I mean, they’re known worldwide. That’s why a good review with an Amazon link is more likely to convert than some other affiliate programs.
    Once the first was there, you’ll certainly see more.

      Thank you, Aless. Yes, you are right, Amazon is so well known that a lot of people do seem happy to buy from them.
