Best affiliate programs to promote
Unless you prepare, you’ll have a vague idea of what you are going to promote on your Amazon affiliate sites. If you are thinking of promoting things that you like, you need to change your approach right away.
That is because you need to promote stuff on Amazon affiliate sites that are profitable. To make money on your niche website, you should promote stuff that people are already buying.
You may have a preference over certain products, but you need to re-think your strategy. Again, if you promote something that has good reviews, you’ll make more money. Let us take a look at finding the best affiliate programs to promote.
Finding the Bestsellers
This is one of the best ways to find products to promote on your Amazon affiliate sites. The best strategy is to include products that are already on the Amazon bestsellers list.
To find the bestsellers of your niche, go to the Amazon homepage and hover over the “departments” menu. Select your niche from the category then click on a subcategory that fits the products.
Now click on the “Bestsellers” tab in the top menu. Amazon has a bestsellers list for every product category. We recommend that you look at it on a regular basis to find interesting products.
There are also many other ways to find hot products that you can promote. These include hot new releases, most wished for items and gift ideas. To see a full list of bestsellers in all categories, click on “any department” button on the left.
The following page will show you some of the bestseller products on each category. You can see marketplace categories on the left-hand menu. Check each one’s bestsellers by clicking on them.
Below you’ll find a list of categories where products sell like crazy. These are products that get consumed every day on a worldwide scale. Review them on your Amazon affiliate sites and provide a recommendation.
- Home improvement
- Arts and crafts
- Baby care
- Personal care
- Fitness and sports
- Home and Kitchen
- Patio and Garden
- Pet care
A final recommendation
We recommend that you look at the price of the product before you start promoting it. Also, look at how profitable it is to promote a category of products in the long run.
There is another way to find profitable product categories. Go to the Amazon associates program homepage. Then click on “advertising fees” title under the “earn” section. There you will be able to find “fixed standard program fee rates” per category. And also the “variable standard program fee rates for other products”. Plus per “number of products purchased in a given calendar month.”
