Adding an Amazon banner to your website is quick and easy and could give your Amazon affiliate sales and bounties a big boost.

You can grab your Amazon banner code from within your earnings section. Hover your mouse over the "product linking" option in the top menu and then click on banners. You will find all the different categories and banner sizes available as well as the html codes.

To add the code to your sidebar go to your Wordpress dashboard, hover over "appearance" and click on "widgets".

Then click on "Custom html" and add it to your sidebar, then paste the code into the content section.

If you don't have custom html choose the text widget.

If you have any questions please pop them in the comments below!

Hi Lynne,
Thank you for this training. Very helpful. I want to ask you, is there a limit of custom HTML to add in the website or is unlimited when adding a banner?

Hi Jocelyn

Honestly that is not something I know. I don't think that there would be a limit to the amount of widgets you can add to your sidebar, however I don't think that adding too many things to your sidebar would be helpful. You want people to be able to get to your footer... and also you wouldn't want your sidebar to continue with things longer than your blog roll and longer than your posts when people are reading your posts. I don't think that would look right.

You can add as many as you want but as Lynne suggested you don’t want too many banners or else your site just look spammy.

Hi Lynne, thank you for this demonstration. Quick and easy! I am not an Amazon affiliate. I understand that before one applies for affiliate status it is better to have a decent looking website up and running as many of them do a site check when you apply. Is this correct?

Thanks again and all the best.

Hi Brian

I am not sure what their process is for approving your account in the beginning but I do think that they check your website. I do know that a lot of people apply way too early for an affiliate account and it really is important to ensure that you have some traffic to your website because you get 3 months from the time you are approved as an Amazon affiliate to make a sale. If you don't they boot you out and I am not sure what the process if for reapplying.

I would recommend spending some time getting your website going first before applying for your Amazon affiliate account.

Thanks for the feedback. I only started getting set up just over a month ago so it would be best to let the dust settle and establish the site and then I'll look into it.

Yeah I would rather make sure you are getting some traffic and engagement before applying. I love being an Amazon affiliate - the biggest range of products plus loads of banners and opportunities to earn and a great conversion rate!
