Are you looking to increase web traffic & put some cash in your pocket?
Today you will see an example on how using the Amazon WordPress plugin, you can create your very own “Amazon Store”. So fire up your fingers and add a current topic (blog post or page) and place specific ads through your post. More traffic almost always means $$$ especially when you have related content. This is a follow up post I blogged about before, however what is new is the WordPress plugin that Amazon made for WordPress.
*note – for my hero image (at the top of the post) – I used a Word Cloud Generator located here for FREE! I used all of the keywords and text from the page – a real easy and neat way to expose what you are writing about…
See my first post about Amazon here.
Bellow on this page, you can see items I selected to display how the Amazon plugin for WordPress works. People can browse your site that includes items linked to Amazon connected to your affiliate account. If they make a purchase on this topic, you can earn up to 10% of the total sales connected to your web site. Just think if you have enough traffic to get $100,000 in “sales” generated – you could get $10K in your pocket. It is a numbers game, numbers for web traffic and then clicks to Amazon.
Dream the dream, payoff your cats vet bill, buy them a nice scratch post to save your hi-end Speaker Grills (Not that I know anything about that)! Maybe take the wife out for dinner… so many things – like a new or used for that matter Porsche 911… Yeah… a 1993 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 – in Blue – with the white interior (I have not given this any thought at all).
You do need to dream – but back to reality here… so what does it look like?
Using the example of LED book lights below, here are the options for creating links to products with the Amazon WordPress plugin.
1. LED Book Lights Carousel
[amazon_link asins=’B01MY051VG,B01MZ8C9S8,B011BHICIW,B072MQ6R8T,B01MXV4UYZ,B01N3RNIL5,B01N7M94NU’ template=’ProductCarousel’ store=’8599-9523-9537′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’624a6906-5ba3-11e7-a267-23b73c0bc6c3′]
2. LED Book Lights Product AD
[amazon_link asins=’B00R6X9WLM’ template=’ProductAd’ store=’8599-9523-9537′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’c0e02e51-5ba8-11e7-8f5d-85f1765d482f’]
3. LED Book Lights Product Link
[amazon_link asins=’B00YXSF31Q’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’8599-9523-9537′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d4ead5eb-5ba9-11e7-a043-ef21936e600e’]
4. LED Book Lights Price link
[amazon_link asins=’B01J943WNY’ template=’PriceLink’ store=’8599-9523-9537′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’2264ee95-5ba9-11e7-961b-e3545811930c’]
5. LED Book Lights Product Grid
[amazon_link asins=’B000ITGQXS,B01D4FP6MY,B01MZC25V9,B00FFUAZPA’ template=’ProductGrid’ store=’8599-9523-9537′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’460850f3-5ba9-11e7-bfe8-75f540f21912′]
Once the plugin is activated (a little pain in the rear) you can simply select the Amazon search field to search the store.
Once you find what you are looking for, select one of the default displays… and add to your post or page.
The cool thing about this example above and the content from Amazon, is that you can replicate this idea to use on your web site to drive traffic to your site. Google is always looking for new information to send people to your site. The more you can give new and updated information / pages / posts to your site the more traffic will be generated.
Therefore, think about items you don’t carry in your store (online or physical shop). Use this to your advantage to create new posts and content. Then strike up your keyboard and write about these products.Then create a list and connect them to your site using the Amazon plugin, in turn creating a traffic generator, and hopefully you end up with some referral sales too.
