We all know that Amazon associates is one of the quality affiliate system and the conversions are tremendously higher, when compared to other affiliate networks. The Profitable nature of Amazon associates is that, you could find many products for sale.
Whatever be the market, you could find products (both digital as well as physical products) to promote.
Though the commission offered by Amazon looks smaller percentage (starts from 4%), the conversion rate is generally higher.
Your commission per sale increases based on the number of conversions you drive each month. That’s why I am saying, Amazon associates is one of the profitable network.
From my Gadget blog, so far I had sold $30,000+ worth of products. Interestingly, many of the products that I sold were not promoted from my blog.
That means: people are addicted to buy anything from Amazon.
WordPress & Amazon Affiliate Links.
From my own experience, what I understood is that: WordPress + Amazon is one of the best “Profitable Combination”.
Adding affiliate links to your WordPress blog is simpler with WordPress plugins.
When you are ready to pay-a-little, you could make use of a best WordPress plugin which can automatically monetize your WordPress blog.
Azon FlyBox is a simple-to-use plugin that shows a popup on the sidebar of your blog. The popup shows Amazon products relevant to the blog post, it automatically adds your affiliate link along with product image, pricing etc.
This is something similar to NYTimes.com’s Ad popup that appears on the sidebar.
The following are the list of advantages that I felt in using FlyBox:
- You don’t need to manually embed any affiliate link in the blog post.
- You can also manually edit the product list, in case, if you are not satisfied with the auto-list.
- You can integrate International associate account – it supports 9 different countries and automatically shows appropriate affiliate link depending on the visitors IP address.
- You can customize the look-n-feel of the widget: transition style, colors, text in order to improve the conversion.
- Important: FlyBox is responsive that means compatible with Smartphone, Tablet screens without touching any source code.
- Licensed to use on multiple WordPress blogs + bonus plugins.

I always love premium plugins when it comes to Amazon because their Advertising API used to change every time. Generally, premium plugins are promptly updated to it and FlyBox monetizes your blog utilizing the most from your visitors.
That’s one of the major reason for my success, to drive atleast $30,000+ worth of sale as an Amazon affiliate.
