Amazon Associates

Last Update: August 17, 2018

Hello Guys & Gals,

Well I finally broke down and designed a website for " Mentoring With Jeff", you are all welcome to read my first post and leave a coment if you like.

Welcome to Mentoring With Jeff

This is my first post on my new website Mentoring With Jeff, you can find me also on my Facebook page.https://facebook.com/mentoringwithjeff. For my first post I am going to talk to you about the best free affiliate programs, I get many people contacting me how to choose the best free affiliate programs. There are probably thousands of affiliate programs available for you to consider, but what I suggest to the people who contact me is your first step is to decide on the niche you wish to promote. Your niche is your most important factor to consider before even starting your search for affiliate programs, and the best way to choose the best niche is consider your passions. You want to promote products which you believe in and you use or would use yourself, so what topic can you talk about forever to your friends and family could be the key to the best niche for you.

Amazon Associates-Commission

I recommend you consider the commissions when choosing the best free affiliate programs for your business, I have seen affiliate programs which pay commissions from as little as three percent and up to thirty or forty percent. Many times the affiliate programs which pays the highest commissions are the most difficult to join, even though they are free many are picky about who they take as affiliates. So don’t be surprised if you apply for high paying affiliate programs and get turned down, and most of the time the reason you will get turned down is your website is new without high traffic. The majority of affiliate programs do prefer affiliates with their own website, so for beginners I recommend considering Amazon Associates Affiliate Program.

Best Free Affiliate Programs-Amazon Associates

I am an Amazon Associate, but I will be honest with you about Amazon. Amazon does provide you many ways to earn being an associate, but seldom people can earn an income just by promoting Amazon products. Amazon is one of the best free affiliate programs simply because no matter what your niche might be they have products you can promote, I also recommend this program to beginners because Amazon is known to most people who shop online. Amazon was one of the first affiliate programs which started in 1996, and you will find many websites and blogs with Amazon links and banners which shoppers feel comfortable buying from.

Is Amazon Associates Right For You

Amazon is free and easy to promote their products, if you visited my other websites you would see I promote Amazon with product ads on my website header or website footer, but seldom in my posts. I recommend bloggers especially consider using recommended native Amazon ads, you will experience more traffic and sales with these ads than any other marketing strategy I have found. What is awesome about using these types of ads is your ads automatically promote Amazon products which related to your posts, so once I place the ads on my header or footer of my website I don’t need to bother with them again.

Where Do You Place Amazon Associates Ads

For my first few years in the business I followed the traditional ad placing on my side blog of my website, but after over a year without receiving much traffic or sales I started to experiment were to pace my Amazon ads. I have experienced a dramatic difference in traffic every single day since making this small adjustment, and I am experiencing steady sales in just over one month after changing were I placed my Amazon ads. I have found when you place your ads on your website header or footer you are putting your ads right in the face of your website visitors, how many ads on websites on their side blog do you remember after you leave the website. Most of us don’t really notice those ads as much as in the past, so I do recommend you giving this some thought were you place your Amazon ads. This also goes for any other affiliate ads you might decide to post on your website, I only post one ad on my side blog and that is my Wealthy Affiliate ad because I am proud of being a part of the Wealthy Affiliate Business Community.

Amazon Associates-Building Your Business Website

Feel free to use the link above if you are interested in reading the rest of my first post on " Mentoring With Jeff ".

Before I end this post I wish to share with the new members when anyone leaves a comment on your website you should visit their website and do the same, I know many new members might not ever think to do this on their own. So consider this just a friendly tip from Mentoring With Jeff, now all of you have an awesome weekend.

Take Care

Jeff

Thanks Jeff. I use Amazon Associates but will be looking at other associates for future web sites. Not because I don't like Amazon. I just don't like to keep all my eggs in one basket. Jim,

Hello JIm
Amazon is alright for extra income, but you are wise to be promoting other affiliate programs which pay higher commissions within your niche as well.

I provide two mentoring programs for self employed health industry business opportunities through my Mentoring With Jeff website, absolutely free to join and I mentor anyone who joins my team personally but this is only a good opportunity for someone interested in build their own team or/and promoting health products.

I do provide mentoring for free to anyone even if you are not in one of my mentoring programs, what type of affiliate programs are you interested in adding to your website business?

Hi Jeff, wow talk about timing. I bought those Azon amazon sites. 25 niche sites. I tried to set them up but no way. So i sent in a help ticket. This is after having numerous problems. Setting up Cpanel and FileZilla. Eventually I saw another listing we will upload your niches sites for X amount of dollars. I could not afford the 25 sites so I picked 5. I get an e-mail back saying the sites I picked were not available to me because I picked package two. I proceeded to pick 5 sites from package two. After a long delay the sites were uploaded to an index with a D9 domain. I have been struggling to get these sites working, no success. Another package comes along saying they will do everything for me for the chosen sites picked. Two months now, I cant afford another package. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello
The Team One and Team Two sites are my mentoring program sites for anyone interested in becoming self employed through these programs.

Both sites promote CBD oil products which are natural health products which are taking the internet by storm, this industry is predicted to be a billion dollar industry, but these are just my mentoring programs for people interested in the natural health industry.

I do provide free private mentoring to everyone, you don't need to join either program for me to help you with your business no matter what type of business you own

Hello Nick
I was feeling the very same way as you my friend, but I stuck it out and experimented and I have shared what is now giving me steady traffic and sales.

I was ready to give up on Amazon as well, but something inside of me kept me trying new things until i found what works.

I wish you would have visited my new website and checked out my tips

Thanks Jeff for this great info. I just became an associate last week.

Your post contains a lot of information. I will take me some time to absorb it all, but I will take my time and go over everything.

Thanks again

Hello,
I thank you for reading my post, Amazon is one of the best free affiliate programs for beginners, but at the same time very frustrating to promote successfully when starting out.
