I am updating this post to let you know I have started one on one coaching on running your own online Amazon affiliate site and included in the coaching I will build you an Amazon store and teach you how to run it. This will all be done in my live training room. I will go over buying your domain name, getting hosting, and how to set up your own Amazon store after I build the first one for you. The cost of the training is $97 and I will spend as much time as is needed with you to be able to run it yourself.
Your new store will automatically add the kinds of products you want to sell. This is a very cool way to get started in your own online business. If this is something you want to be included in, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or Skype me at shon.jimenez
How many of you have an Amazon site that sells products from Amazon? I love my Amazon business. I have been an Amazon affiliate for so many years. I would have to look into it to find the exact year I started, but I do know it was before 2009.
I can always count on receiving an Amazon check every single month. They never let you down with excuses on why they can’t pay. Never has happened.
I do remember building my first “A Store” selling headphones. It was a crappy looking site and it didn’t do very well. I couldn’t figure out why. That was until I asked a friend, who was making pretty good money selling Amazon products. I asked him how he does it. What is the secret to getting people to buy from his store instead of people just going to Amazon.
He told me it was because he designed his own site, which made sense. His site looked nothing like those affiliate “A Store” sites that Amazon lets you build in your members area. It had a custom look to it. People didn’t seem to care that it was still Amazon’s products, they bought from his store.
That still wouldn’t help me though, unless I wanted to pay hundreds of dollars to have a site built for me. It could get pretty expensive having someone design them for you. Then I started seeing all the people selling Amazon themes. You would have a semi-custom site loaded with Amazon products.
I tried a few of them, but they never seemed to work as promised. There was always something difficult about putting them up with product. I needed something that would be easy to set up because I planned on having many store, one for each niche I was going to target. That was the plan anyway.
The about two years ago I ran across a this amazing Amazon system that worked with WordPress. It was a theme and a plugin. Once you installed it you filled in a few simple settings and bam, you got a fully functioning Amazon website. Plus you can sell things from eBay and Commission Junction if you wanted to and it was socially integrated. Meaning when I publish a post it would send the post to Twitter and Facebook. It was really cool.
So of course I jumped on it and started building my sites out. Some of the niches I targeted was Pets, Dooms Day Prepping, Wedding, and electronics. I just added a toy store and am filling it with products.
The best part about it is you can set up a few keywords and it will automatically pull products from Amazon and publish it to your store. It is almost set it and forget it, except I don’t believe in setting it and forgetting it. I like to be active in my business. So even though it will post products on its own, Is still go in once a week and add a few that I want to make sure get included on the site.
Like I mentioned it is a regular income for me. Nothing nicer than getting a check every single month. Plus it didn’t cost me and arm & leg to get them going either. I just had to buy the theme and plugin once and do some advertising each week. Nothing major.
If you want your own Amazon store that works well, I can hook you up with the only company that I will trust when it comes to selling anything related to Amazon. It is called Covert Store Builder. I simply can’t recommend anything better. I still continue to add stores to my business. I have found the best way to do it is by category, like toys or electronics. You can even take it one step further and set up a store that sells action figures. It’s all up to you.
Here is my Daily Deal Bender store than has been open for almost two years.
