A fair amount of sellers I promote are without Affiliate Programs.

One manufacturer in particular has such a rare item, it is only available on their website. They are w

You can try to reach out to the manufacturer and see if they’re willing to start an affiliate program. Otherwise maybe you could review similar items and link to them from your posts about the rare item.

Your website will naturally have some affiliate and some non-affiliate content. Non-affiliate content can still be used to get readers to take action like go to an affiliate page, join an email list, leave a comment, or something else. Depends on where you want to send them.

You can also just monetize views using something like Adsense or Mediavine.

there is a way of tracking clicks on links ...you tend to use it for solo ads...
there are plugins you can use like linker
but you will need to talk to the vendor about how you can show that your visitors bought hte product....
good luck

HELP!
Calling all Amazon Affiliates!

Wealthy Affiliate Training LEVEL 4: Lesson 3... The assignment is to "Create a Facebook Status Update that meets one of the SIX

I'm not sure if I understand your question Michael. To purchase an item from Amazon without using your own affiliate link, you can just open an incognito browser window, or use a different browser (Firefox vs Safari vs Chrome).

Personally, I use Google Chrome profiles. I have one profile for working, and one for personal stuff, so I only shop on the personal one.

Oh! Of Course! Incognito Mode!

Why the Amazon Associate rep did not mention Incognito Mode?!

Thank You.

Yes I also use Google Chrome profiles also. They are great!

My question was, by clicking my blog links from any and all Google Chrome profiles, however, would regrettably also apply my Amazon ID tracking code, and get me in trouble with Amazon.

But the Incognito Mode is the Answer!
Thanks Bud!

You should be safe by using Chrome profiles as well, as long as you are not logged into your Amazon account and not clicking Amazon links on those profiles. Sounds like you are familiar with incognito though, so that should be good enough.

So it appears the above mentioned is the only option.

Furthermore, the 29 Difficult Rules of the Amazon Associate Affiliate Program, the AAAP, makes Affiliate Marketing for startups like me, that much more difficult. So it feels as Amazon is holding my hand, while holding me down.

After writing out the above question, I also watched these 2 videos right before bed...
https://bit.ly/3bDe51W
https://bit.ly/3yl91Jn

It is now crystal clear Amazon is phasing out Affiliates. So we must prepare ourselves by phasing out Amazon.

The evidence suggests Amazon's downward commission trend will end the AAAP in a few years.

Right now I am half way through my 3rd attempt at the AAAP. It is questionable if I will make my 3 sales within the 180 days. I have 0 sales.

During this time, I have been faced with the moral dilemma. Do I starve or grow my business with Amazon, despite Amazon not caring about Affiliates?

The evidence also convicts Amazon as an evil corporation.

- Amazon cuts commissions during the pandemic 2020 April.

- Amazon resets cookie ID tracking to a new cookie ID, if the 3 sales within the 180 days is not met. The links still work for Your readers, but the commissions stop for the Affiliate.

- Amazon Prime Video has been exposed within the http://MoviesAnywhere.com network. Searching a movie for purchase, will display all the retailers that sell that movie for $19.99 at 4K quality. Amazon is the only company that displays movies for HD quality.
Furthermore, if You want the movie and purchased through Amazon, and want it in 4K, you must visit Amazon directly, go to a separate page away from the SD and HD quality page, and pay $34.99.
Moreover, if a movie is instead purchased with Apple and at the SD or HD quality, Apple will automatically upgrade the customers copy, if and when that movie becomes available in the higher 4K quality.

- "Starting from the competition between SpaceX and Blue Origin, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos's feud have gotten more and more heat as the years pass by. Realizing the dominance that Musk has shown with Tesla, Bezos looks to take Musk's fame and money, with an ambitious, greedy, and emotional plan to crush Tesla. In this video, I discuss Jeff Bezos's greedy plan to crush Tesla." https://bit.ly/33Z2XrX

Amazon was the one company that made Affiliate Marketing so easy, who accepted my startup business into their program. Yet they are evil. So I am promoting an evil corporation. I can not help but think of the parallel of Jeff Bezos is to Amazon, what the Star Wars Emperor Palpatine is to the Galactic Empire.

My Conclusion is the Amazon Associate Affiliate Party is winding down. Amazon will eventually abandon the AAAP. If I continue to promote my site with 100% only Amazon, and not diversify, I will have left myself out in the cold. For me, today is the beginning of my exit off of the Amazon rollercoaster. I'm now being accepted into more programs. EBay recently accepted me. Think I'll explore this today.

Uhhhh.....don't be an Amazon Affiliate?? 🤪


Seriously though, I feel your pain, Michael. The rules are utterly ridiculous--reminds me of the song, "It's a small world, after all"!

Jeff

Hi Michael
Lula suggests the Sassy Share Plugin which many of us use because it is easy to set up and doesn’t slow your site down.

Once the share buttons of your choice are set up you will be able to share any post, any time you like. Anyone who visits your posts can do the same to their social accounts.
