Making Money With Amazon The Right Way – Read This…

I believe this post is going to help you make a lot more money with Amazon affiliate program. In this report I am going to show you exactly how you should build and structure your Amazon sites so that they basically print money on demand.

Some of you probably already have tried making money promoting Amazon products and failed. This is because you are constantly being fed lies. You are being sold on so called automated systems that simply DO NOT work.

There is no plugin for WordPress or automated script that can generate valuable content. The quicker you realize that the better.

Real money can be made (a lot of it) if you are building sites that provide value. The user that lands on your website needs a lot more information than just a picture and a product description to make a buying decision.

But you know what?

It IS your fault that you allow this constant failure. I think most people already know in the back of their mind that these automated site builders won’t work, but yet they continue on buying into that crap.

It’s like you are trying to argue with yourself and prove that you are wrong even though you know it’s impossible.

You are right! Don’t try to prove yourself wrong. These scripts and plugins won’t make you money.

There are people cleaning up and making sh**t load of money producing killer sites that are designed for success right from the start.

Those people don’t usually hang out at Warrior Forum, buy software scripts, or try to game the system. They invest into content and laugh all the way to the bank while you are chasing your own tail in circles.

I am about to give you a blueprint for success that cannot fail if you take action and actually work at it.

Sure you can outsource this stuff, and I recommend that you do if you have the funds. But if you are starting from scratch and barely making ends meet then you will need to put in a lot of work and effort.

There is no other way my friend!

You will need to write your own content. You will need to spend hours on developing the site and then promoting it. It won’t happen by itself, and I can assure you that there is no software out there that can create the type of sites I am talking about by pushing a few buttons.

If you can outsource then your job is easy. But if you can’t then get ready to work your butt off for a month or two.  If you are not willing to put in the time then you may as well just start looking for a job.

What Doesn’t Work

First of all, you need to stop buying software products claiming to build profitable Amazon affiliate sites.

Second, you need to realize that scraping product descriptions and reviews that people already left on Amazon doesn’t count as valuable content on your site. It’s valuable on Amazon but not on your site.

Your site is the most important thing in the sales funnel, so why not devote most of your time into doing it right?

Everybody wants a shortcut lol

So you are willing to sacrifice the quality of your site just so you can say “nah, this doesn’t work..I tried” ?

I consider myself pretty good as far as ranking niche sites. I get emails from people all the time asking how they can rank their Amazon sites in Google so they can get more traffic, but when I ask them to show me the site they send me a link to some bull**t website loaded with hundreds of product pictures, scraped descriptions, and fake comments from Yahoo Answers lol

I don’t even reply to them after that.

Google will never rank them and I am glad that they don’t get any traffic at all. I hope their sites just vanish because in my opinion it’s all garbage.

Let me show you an example here:

This is a page that was automatically generated by one of those so called “automated systems”. Would you buy from here? I didn’t think so.

It has duplicate content all over it. There are thousands of sites just like this contributing absolutely no value.

These sites don’t work and will never work. They might have worked in the past (like years ago) but not anymore.

Here is another example:

I mean …what is that?

It’s nothing more than a bridge page (That’s what Google calls it anyway). It has copied text and buy now button.

It adds no value for the user in my opinion. If I landed on this website I would immediately hit the “back” button on my browser and look for something else.

When I search for reviews I want something real. I want the specs, the comparison table, prices, and most importantly opinion of an expert.

I am not looking for a freaking bridge page!

If you are building these type of sites you are wasting your time. The only way you could turn a profit from this if you flipped it to another sucker who wants to do nothing and earn money.

Don’t you agree?

And what’s really interesting is that you already know that this doesn’t work. That little voice inside your head keeps telling you that but you constantly surpress it and continue to believe the lies you are being told on daily basis.

Who is making money from selling these automated systems? I am not going to answer because you already know.

Anyway, let’s talk about something real. Let me show you what kind of sites you should be building and why.

The Amazon Cash Printer Site Model

The site model I am about to show is exactly what you should be doing. It provides value to the end user and can fill up your Amazon Associates account with commissions like you never thought possible.

The key is: valuable content

I am going to show you an example of a review site that is crushing it. It’s not mine but I model my sites based on this example.

Why I will not show you my sites? Simple answer to that. I don’t want you to compete with me after you read this report!

If you go to Google and search for keyword “Nikon d3100” you will see the following results.

If you go there you will see what I am talking about. When I was searching for that camera it was the first link I clicked on and it made me buy.

I spent a total of about 1.5 hours on that site because it was that good.

So let’s analyze it.

Their review is very (I mean very) long. There are total of 20 sections in the review.

Each section is a different page.

When you go there you will see a drop down menu at the top of the page that lets you jump to different sections that you want to read about.

The site is very user friendly and delivers a serious in-depth review. They review cameras but I recommend that you get into a less competitive niche.

They also supplement their reviews with other relevant articles which helps them get more users from other non-buyer keywords.

The beauty of this kind of review is that it doesn’t take a lot of backlinks to rank something like this.

It’s easier to SEO a review site with that much value than some thin affiliate amazon site with just a description and some 200 word lame review.

I hope you are getting the picture here.

These guys are so good that you have no chance in competing with them. That’s the kind of sites you should be developing.

It looks like a ton of work don’t it? Well, that’s because it is!

This site delivered everything I needed. Comparisons, charts, prices, ratings, conclusion, and more.

So after looking at their site you are probably thinking “Hell, this is insane. There is no way I can write all this content”.

To be honest, probably not because most of us are too lazy to do it. We want an easy way out.

Well, but ask yourself this.

Do I want to continue screwing around with these little crappy looking sites, or do I want to put in the work and have a web property developed in 5-6 months from now that can provide me with financial stability?

Think about that for a moment.

If you got money saved up you can outsource this. Content is the best investment you can make right now. (Read my post I made recently on my blog here)

Build something you are proud of, that delivers what people are looking for and you won’t have any problems with getting top search engine rankings.

You don’t have to write so much content as they do and still deliver enormous amount of value. Cameras require a lot of testing so there is definitely a lot to write about, but in other niche markets you can still deliver great experience for the end user with less content.

What I do is compact their style of review on one page. My reviews are around 1500-2000 words. I have no problem getting rankings in Google with this method and basically eat those little sites with duplicate content for breakfast.

You need to make an outline for yourself that you are going to follow with each review.

For example:

– Introduction

– Specs

– About the product

– Performance

– Pros

– Cons

– Conclusion

Obviously you will have a different outline for each niche market. This was just a simple example, but you need to make the outline match the product you are going to review.

I would research what people want to know about the products you want to write about. Go to forums and read their questions. Check Amazon reviews to see what made them buy it and what kind of language they use.

Based on that data you make your outline that you are going to follow and start writing away!

Simple isn’t it?

Not really because most people stop here. They don’t want to write a word and will continue on with their beliefs that they can make money doing nothing.

Honestly, if you are that person I don’t know what to tell you. I guess you could get a second job and save for 6 months so you can then jump straight into outsourcing.

Ok so now let’s talk about the action plan

Action Plan

In this part of the report I am going to go over the steps that you should take to start building a site of that caliber.

Keep in mind that you need to actually work to do this, but it’s well worth it at the end.

Day 1 – Find your niche (category) & prepare your review layout

You want to find a category on Amazon with products that are popular and sell well.

If you are not outsourcing then find something you know a lot about or enjoy writing about.

Make sure you pick products that actually need reviews. You need to be able to come up with a 1500-2000 word review page. Some products don’t require reviews for peope to buy them.

For example, there isn’t much you can write about chairs…I am sure you get my point.

There are lots of great products in the “Home, Garden & Tools” category that you can use this system on. Of course Electronics is great as well, but remember that it’s competitive and the payout isn’t as good.

Once you pick your product line you need to come up with your review layout. So basically what you want to do is start researching what kind of questions people ask regarding these products and what makes them buy.

Check out forums and Amazon reviews for that.

Your review layout is just an outline that you are going to follow for every review you are going to write.

Day 2 – Find first set of 5 products to review

In fact I recommend that you identify 10 products worth reviewing in your niche because you want to be able to create comparison tables and interlink these products with in-content links.

The concept is simple. Find products that already sell well. They need lots of positive reviews because then it’s easier to pin point important selling points when writing your review, and it provides instant social proof for people you send there.

I prefer choosing products that cost a bit more, but there is money in promoting lower cost products if the sales volume is high. A lot of people add stuff to shopping cart that you didn’t even promote so your commission will most likely be higher than what you expect.

You want to write down the product names, specs, and urls. You will provide this info including your review outline to your outsourcer.

I recommend to get a good content writer. Quality is important! I usually pay around $100 per in-depth review. I would never use someone who charges $5/article from some freelance site.

If you can’t afford it then you will need to write these reviews yourself. I don’t see any other way.

Day 3 – Register your domain name & set up the site

I am not going to teach you how to set up WordPress site here in this report. You can find that stuff for free on Google.

What I do recommend is getting a premium WordPress theme that you can use on multiple sites.

Check out Thesis here. I also wrote a cool post on my blog on how to customize Thesis based niche blogs.

For hosting I use Hostgator (click here and use this coupon code: dospost25)

As far as domain name registration I always recommend something short and brandable.

Some people will tell you to include your keywords in the domain name but I’ve discovered that it doesn’t really matter.

If you are going to sell just 1 product then it might be beneficial to include the name of the product in your domain name, but with this system you are building a niche authority site that sells more than 1 item.

Work on the layout of your site so it looks good and clean.

Day 4-15 – Work on writing your reviews (or wait for your outsourcer to finish them all)

Here is where the real work is done. Like I said before this actually requires quite a bit of work if you are low on budget.

I recommend that you do not let yourself get distracted and just keep at it…trust me it will be well worth it at the end.

You want to have all 5-10 reviews written before you publish them on your site. Once you have them completed put them up all at once.

Disable automatic pinging in your WordPress dashboard when publishing all your reviews. You want Google to find them when you start getting some links.

Make sure each review is between 1500-2000 words. It’s easier to rank long content pages from my experience.

Each review should have a comparison table. Also you might want to apply to other shopping affiliate programs so you can provide price comparison.

You don’t need a plugin for that. Just do it manually. How hard is it to list 5 pricing options from different merchants on each product page? No plugin is needed for that.

Make sure your product reviews are linked from the sidebar. You want each review to get as much link juice as possible.

Each review page should be optimized for keyword phrases it’s targeting.

Once you have all your reviews published it’s time to get some other relevant content on your blog.

Day 15-25 – Post other relevant posts & work on your SEO

If you visited the site I showed you above then I am sure you’ve noticed that they don’t just post reviews. They supplement it with other relevant content.

These posts don’t have to be as long as your review pages. You can post 600-800 words good original articles. I recommend getting about 5 of these written before start working on acquiring links.

So by now you probably starting to realize how important outsourcing is. Speed of implementation is crucial and speed equals money.

In my opinion the biggest reason why people fail in this business is because they don’t have the funds to outsource and scale. Some people don’t agree with me but I think it’s true.

Majority of marketers already know what to do, they know how to get things done and what it takes, but they can’t make it happen because they either burn out too fast or they don’t have the money to act on their ideas.

Ok, now enable pinging for your blog and start publishing your other content pages. Publish 1 every 3-4 days.

I use the schedule feature on my sites so I don’t have to do much during the week.

After you publish 1 of these posts it’s time to roll out your link building campaign.

I highly recommend doing guest posting. I can’t stress this enough. Guest posting has produced superior results for me.

If I was to rank each link building method by effectiveness it would look like this:

1. Guest posting on authority blogs

2. Press releases

3. Relevant directory submission (only a handful)

4. Other link building methods that you should never engage in!

Just 1 link from an authority blog has a lot of firepower. I have seen sites penalized by Google and after doing some guest posting they were brought back to life (rarely happens but sometimes it does)

Guest posting works like crazy and you should do it as much as you can.

Use guest posting, directory submissions to gain links to your homepage and then other link building methods to get links to your product review pages.

Important: Do not submit your site to 1000s of low quality directories. You only need to submit to maybe 2-3 directories.

After you have published your 5 relevant articles continue trying to acquire quality links and try to post 1 article every week or at least every 2 weeks.

Edit: A lot has changed since I have released this report as far as SEO goes. I would highly recommend that you concentrate on your social presence. Your site should have Google + page, Twitter account, Facebook fan page, and a Youtube channel.

Learn how to build your fan base on Facebook and get as much traffic as you can from there. Google will follow sooner or later so you don’t have to be aggressive with guest posting or whatever else you decide to do in that department.

Your first month will bring 0 revenue but after your second month your site should start gaining a lot of traction in the serps.

Monitor your traffic and watch for opportunities to improve your on-site optimization.

That’s all there is to it!

Stick with this plan and I know you will get the results you want. When your site starts bringing in revenue everything becomes much easier and it’s a nice smooth ride from there.

Conclusion

I just gave you a killer blueprint that is fail-proof. It simply works if you are willing to make it happen.

Yes, it does take a lot of work but that’s the only way you are going to make money.

Don’t be like everyone else and buy overhyped automated systems that only steal time from you.

Marketers that produce these products know it’s not going to work but it doesn’t matter to them as long as they get your money.

What I recommend you do is print this report and read it twice. Write down your goals and concentrate on implementing this blueprint over the next 2 months.

Get the site going and don’t look back. When you get your first few sales you will start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Before you know it you will have 2 or 3 sites like that raking in cash.

Always remember to reinvest the money you make to keep growing your empire. Don’t for a second think you are successful after your first website starts making money.

Scaling is crucial if you want financial independence. One site might make you a good living and pay bills but it doesn’t provide financial security. You need to keep growing so don’t lose your momentum.

I hope you enjoyed this report and that you take action on this valuable information.

By the way, if you found this helpful don’t forget to share it with others! 🙂

  1. Hey Blogman, thank you for your feedback. You are right, most people will continue on buying scrapers or what not thinking that their gazillion pages with nothing but a product name and short description with a link to Amazon will actually rank 🙂

  2. ” Those people don’t usually hang out at Warrior Forum, buy software scripts, or try to game the system. They invest into content and laugh all the way to the bank while you are chasing your own tail in circles.” I love this part and it is so true. I have been playing with this idea, but you just opened my eyes wider and now I can smell the flowers. Thank you.

  3. Hi Paul, A very well written informative article. I’m making the transition from Business Analyst to Internet Marketer. I think your Blueprint provide clear and concise instructions to follow. I will review the site details you gave me, and make the necessary observations. Finally, hard work is the secret to success as well as being able to write quality reviews Regards Garry Clinton

  4. Well, it depends on how much you are willing to pay for content. Quality pieces are not cheap. I have paid as much as $200 for a blog post before. Check out Sarah’s work at writeyourrevolution.com. I am not sure if she still accepts clients but she is one of the best.

  5. Good article. But this one thing always ponders in my mind. Content or article writers know that ‘Content is King’ and people make good money with good contents, but why the writers themselves don’t want to utilize their skill and invest their time in building the review websites for themselves and make more money in long run rather than writing articles for others for just $100 one-time payment?? Or maybe the writers keep the 100% genuine contents for themselves and sell the recycled/spun articles to others. Have anyone ever asked a writer about this?

  6. Good question. It’s because content writers don’t usually want to take the risk. They would rather get paid for their work done instead of trying to market it and risk losing money. Great content is not always enough. You also need to be good at marketing it.

  7. Hey Pawel many thanks for sharing this nice Post. The Problem what i see here is, that many people are not able to read a article over 2500 Words. In your example for Nikon d3100 there is a review over 3400 Words. The People want articles with a short text where they can read all important things you know what i mean ?

  8. I guess if you’re going down the review route and providing lots of unique content – you could always offer the product (camera for example) with different retailers and add value by providing the cheapest price too. Every bit of value you can give to the visitor helps.

  9. Wow, I am glad to read your article that is very long so it is very complete. I as a new player for the Amazon affiliate, I certainly get a lot of information from your article and take a long time to learning and practicing. Hopefully I can read your other article that will add the information for me to succeed in affiliate of Amazon. Thank you.

  10. Dude this idea just occurred to me a couple of days ago and now you have confirmed my plan! But you know what, I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE GIVING THIS INFORMATION OUT FREE!!! Good grief you must be one generous soul!
