Is Amazon affiliate program even worth joining?

With Amazon affiliate program, you earn a base of 4% which is extremely low by comparison to Clickbank products, which often offer up to 75% commissions. Is Amazon affiliate program even worth joining?

Yes I Recommend You To Joint Amazon Affiliate Program If You Have Excellent Traffic On Your Website.
On Other Side ClickBank is good but It require lot of Hard Work.


From My Point Of View is Add Google Adsense With Amazon.

I don't recommend amazon.It is better if you join seoclerks affiliate program.

Many members here report very good earnings from SEOClerks affiliate program.

i recommend clickbank.

I have earned money with Clickbank. It's especially easy to earn if you take time to build an email list for a specific product or niche.

Amazon has a lot to offer their affiliates, including a variety of banners. You can also link most products listed on Amazon. I've personally been an affiliate with Amazon for about a year now and they do have a lot to offer, but I would recommend mixing their Affiliate Program with another monetization feature such as Google Adsense or Clixsense, even InfoLinks could work.

The result of your marketing for Amazon's affiliate program will definitely defer from person to person, as everyone has their own method of promotion and marketing that works for them.

I would also suggest you take a look at ClickBank - they have programs that pay you good amounts of commission if you can refer sales to them, but as Beverly mentioned, with ClickBank you should have a good email list to promote ClickBank products (It's not a requirement, but there's no doubt that a good email list will help you).

You should also have a look at the affiliate program that SEO Clerks offered. I see a lot of affiliates making a good amount of money through this affiliate program. They also have an API that you can use to retrieve listings directly to your website.

Another affiliate marketplace I highly recommend is Commission Junction. They have a massive collection of affiliate programs including domain registration, design services, consumer electronics and so much more - there's definitely something for everyone, it doesn't matter what industry or niche you are in.

At one time, I had 10+ Amazon sites earning $500/mo, it was good
until they all started to decline to the point where I was making less
then $25/mo which no longer even covered the cost of the VPS. It seemed
like the more content I added, the worse things got, until I shut them all down....

The key to earning with Amazon is just to get the person onto the Amazon site. They don't even have to purchase the item you recommended as you will earn any money off that customer with any purchase they make. This is a good feature of Amazon since they use cookies. You won't find that with Clickbank or other sites.

I was having the same issue because all the targeted keywords that my pages were ranking now Amazon ranks on top of it so I am losing potential customers and thats a lot of them. To add to the misery, the commission % is also being reduced by Amazon after every couple of months and this has been happening pretty consistently for the past 2 years.

Don't get me wrong here, Amazon Affiliate program is still very profitable since its all about volume and not just the commission per sale gimmick.

oh! I wasn't aware of that. It's been awhile since I promoted Amazon products and I had considered adding those to my marketing mix. Maybe not now if they are being stingy with the commissions.

I think Amazon affiliate is a really good place to start getting into the affiliate marketing. You won't be earning much but small amount of money is more than enough. And each month you can earn some money and it does build up. Though you may have to for more content. And daily post something that can add up. But if you choose not to go that route then may be it is harder. Without content its hard to get more links to amazon. So write 1 article a day and see where it takes you.

I am not using Clickbank because this affiliate program is not available in my country. I use Amazon, Commission Junction, and Linkshare. The most rewarding affiliate program for me is Commission Junction. I continue to use Amazon even though there are no sales just because I believe this will be fruitful in future.
