How to Partner With Amazon
When you talk online business, a few names spring to mind, and Amazon.com is certainly one of them. It’s one of the world’s largest web stores, and has made owner and founder Jeff Bezos one of the most famous (and richest) online entrepreneurs around.
Amazon.com has programs in place, that allow people just like you to make money by partnering with them. Here’s how you can make money from Amazon.com.
Become An Affiliate
One of the reasons Amazon.com has stayed so successful over the years is that they change with the times. What was once a simple online bookstore is now a mega web store that sells everything from clothes to cameras. They’ve also realised that affiliate marketing is a great way to drive traffic to their site.
To become an Amazon affiliate, you will need to sign up for their program. Once you’ve been accepted, you can choose products to promote on your site, blog or web store, and whenever something sells through your site, you make money. Because it’s backed by Amazon, it’s a trustworthy source, so people are more likely to sell, and the huge volume of items to sell means you can have a web store devoted to just about anything.
Use Lulu.com to Publish a Book
Amazon.com is also one of the sites out there that is making it possible for independent authors to publish and sell their books online, and they’ve partnered with people like Lulu.com to make that happen.
Lulu.com is an POD – or Print On Demand – publisher, that allows people to create books, calendars and other printed material. They’ve got a distribution deal with Amazon.com, and through them, you can sell your books and other items on the site. You could also upload an e-book directly to their Kindle program through the site.
Sell Your Stuff
Amazon.com also has an online sales program that allows people to sell their new and used goods through the site. Your items will be listed alongside new items that they are offering, and you will get a share of the sale price.
One of the nicest things about using Amazon.com as a means of making money online is that they are a huge, popular and successful site, and for the new site or blog owner, or author for that matter, it’s great to be able to piggy back on their success.
