Make Money with Amazon
Selecting A Site ModelYou can Promote your Niche Products in different ways. But here I would like to break those things into 3 categories.
- Affiliate Ecommerce Sites
- Product Review Sites
- Blog Sites
I always prefer to use either both 2 and 3 or else all the three sites to promote your niche product. This kind of approach helps me to promote multilple phases of the buying cycle and multiple forms of content. But you should select among these sites which suits your strategy and approach.
Affiliate Ecomm Site
There is no difference between affiliate ecommerce site and normal ecommerce site. The only things is, in Amazon, when a customer attempts to purchase the product they are taken to Amazon to fulfill the order. And you don't have to fulfill orders or worry about logistics and all the other labor intensive aspects of an Ecommerce Site.
In the below example, I have built Hunting Bows
Product Review SiteWith this site you can simply review your niche products and link directly to the product on amazon. The best example of the model: The Wire Cutter
I already discussed about how modified keywords playing important role in Niche product promotion. The site uses modifiers such as:
Awesome Content with Amazing presentation = More Revenue (More Commission)
Authority Blogs - Influence the Buyers
Blogging is usually more effective if you have a high traffic and mix in review posts or link to products that you mention within a blog post. The most successful blogs are those which deliver amazing value and develop a responsive following.
A man who has succeeded using this strategy is Pat Flynn. Check out his blog here: Smart Passive Income

Affiliate Super Sites Vs Niche Dominators
If you are supposed to build your niche site for the long haul then this site should be an inspiration. It was created by Darren Rowse of Problogger. Digital Photography School is a combination of all the above 3 site types I expalined previously. It actually goes further. DPS(Digital Photography School) makes use of this multitude of strategies to generate income. Some of them listed below:
