    I've been doing some research too. I hear amazon doesn't payout the highest, but it's still good place to start. If I were you, don't focus just one the money making, but how your going to attract people to what you have to offer. As I see it, once you learn how to drive traffic and convert that traffic into sales...then the game changes. Good luck to you! OH! What are you looking to promote specifically?

    I heard Amazon is good because many people trust it. Also, try to find a program that has whatever it is you're interested in..the money will follow uf you're passionate about whatever you're selling. Good luck!

    For a beginner I'd say no. Better to promote products with higher commissions when first getting involved in affiliate marketing imho.

    I agree with all of the above. The pro of Amazon is that the products sell themselves and the program is easy to join and set up as long as you have a bank account and so on. It might not be easy as far as sellling, though. It might be easier if it's a less-saturated niche you want to promote -- one subcategory of digital items, for instance. I haven't tried it yet but I want to.

    Amazon affiliate program is great alternative to Google Adsense program. You can put Adsense banners + link to products using Amazon text links for maximum conversion

    It's great way to earn passive income. Suppose, you write news item related to 'Borderlands 2' video game, linked with your affiliate id and someone buys the game 6 months later, you still make money!

    However, making good money from Amazon takes long time...

    Also, the way I look at the whole realm of internet marketing is...once your able to learn the techniques and become successful, you then have the ability to craft your own products. For example, if you have major success in lets say, video marketing, you now obtained knowledge/skills to share with others. If that makes sense... it will take a long time to get there.

    Amazon to be honest is very difficult but is also great affiliate program, it takes time to make any decent income at least a year maybe, its up to your effort and your ability to build a site with good generic traffic.

    Get traffic to your site first. Once you have traffic coming to your site, you should be able to do pretty good by adding selective ads from Amazon.com that are related to the content of your site. In other words, if a page of your site gets people interested in a particular topic, display a couple of ads to books or other products where someone can learn more about that subject. I haven't done well with more generic ads, however.

    on Amazon I earn my first commision. First was 20$, later 70$ but it was very ....booooring especialy niche research. With Amazon one thing is good. When product disapear you can easy replace item. And people also buying stuff not advertised on your site.

    I would actally suggest the FBA program they have at Amazon and sell private label products made in china - you could buy something for a few dollars and sell it for 20-50 dollars depending on a variety of factors such as quality, popularity of items, listing, reviews, etc.

    I make thousands like that a month.....if you want to know more, just ask!

    I also came out with an afiiliate blueprint product that lays out that kind of buisness step by step!
