Ways to research what products to promote on Amazon.com?

Discussion in 'Amazon' started by TheDataPlanet.com, Mar 1, 2015.

    I'm currently averaging $300 per month from Amazon affiliate commissions. I know Amazon started out with books so what I'm focusing on are also books. Some say books aren't what makes the most, but refuse to tell me how they choose products to promote on Amazon.com.

    My procedures are simple. As I promote books, I will just search for relevant book genres / titles / etc. keywords on Google Keyword Planner, order them by monthly volume and check the saturation on Google Search.

    What is your way of choosing Amazon products? Can you share a tip or two? How do you select the most profitable products on Amazon? A hint?

    Thank you so much!

    For me, i just choose what i want to promote that is relevant to my site. I make a simple review that i can relate.

    I only average $50 per month though.. as it just complements my adsense site.

    I would like to promote products that are of $100 value as Amazon gives less % of profit. I usually use the same process as you.

    Well you have probably heard this before but look at the best sellers in your niche and put those products on your website. If you don't have a particular niche look at best sellers pages and see which products are hot right now.

    What's your URL? I'm skeptical as many say they earn but never show their website.

    I would do product centric keyword research.

    Step 1) check which products sell the best on Amazon.com (they have a best selling list)
    Step 2) do keyword research around those products to find low competition ones

    it sounds simple but actually need to put some thinking behind.
    For example: purchase funnel, buyer persona etc

    Do you realize that if you "sold" $1,000,000 for them you would make only $60,000?
    Unless you are dead set on a specific niche I would consider promoting digital products that pay up to 75% commissions.

    You would need a metric ton of traffic to make serious cabbage with Amazon.

    Just a thought.

    Respect

    That is a very good point and that is one of the reasons I went through different affiliate programs to see if others could do better.
    In the end, even though the commission might be little lower with Amazon, nothing could really beat the conversion rate.
