Before creating your first website for Amazon, we need to determine which niche or category is profitable one and we should focus on those niche and category. Here I give you some samples.
Keywords and Number of Searches (Monthly) – Google Keyword Planner

I personally suggest you to create a Amazon eStore like me. I have created Amazon Store in my site Peramburkumar.com. If you’re not clear about how to choose the best product or best niche site to promote and which is the best category which gives you high commission rate. Then better create a eStore is my suggestion.
Product Category – 10% Commission Rate & above
- Kindle eBooks
- Clothing – 12%
- Shoes – 12%
- Beauty & Health
- Books & Media
- Cars, Motorbikes & Industrial Products
- Toys & Baby Products
- Jewellery (excluding Gold and Silver coins)
- Home & Kitchen
- Kindle Devices
- Video Games
- Luggage & Bags
- Sports, Fitness and Outdoors
- Office & Stationery
- Musical Instruments
- Gourmet & Specialty Foods
I recommend keeping your niche broad vs highly targeted. This will allow you to add more and more products and give you more opportunities to create more content. The more content on your website the more potential your site has to attract new visitors and also your returning visitors.
Bottom Line: More Audience leads to More Conversions! More Conversions leads to More Commission.
Amazon Keyword Research – Finding the Right Category for Your Site
The first place you should start your keyword research is on Amazon. When researching keywords ideas on Amazon here are the basic metrics to keep in mind: There are four things you have to consider when you’re doing keywords research on Amazon.
- Average Sale Price
- Number of Reviews
- Amount of the Product
- Product LifeSpan.
After thoroughly analyzing the Tactical Bag Niche it appears this is a great place to start. Because there are more than 10,000 products and out of that 424 products approximately above 100 Dollars price range. So this is the hunting ground for you.
The tactical bag niche has hundreds of products over 100 US Dollars. Look like a great way to start. You can also promote Smart Phones, Laptop and all Video Games, Kindle Devices etc.
Niche Potential Keyword Research
So we’ve decided on the tactical bag niche. Now it’s time to determine the potential. To get a quick idea on the potential we turn to the AdWords Keyword Planner provided by Google.
Now, we start by searching niche specific keywords.
- Tactical Bags (2,400 monthly searches)
- Tactical Packs (1,000 monthly searches)
- Tactical Backpacks (2,400 monthly searches)
The search volume for the above keywords are slim. So let’s do some keyword research on the exact products.
Here are some examples:
- Condor 3 Day Assault Pack (2,400 monthly searches)
- 5.11 Rush 72 Backpack (260 monthly searches)
- Condor Urban Go Bag (110 monthly searches)
As you can see the search volume starts to add up pretty quickly.
Let’s have some fun with numbers so we can start to see the real value of this niche website.
Here is a realistic sample scenario:
- 5,000 Monthly Visits
- 500 Clicks to Amazon per Month
- Average sale price of $250
- 4% Conversion Rate
- 4% Commission Rate
That’s 20 sales and $200 per month you would be earning. These numbers are fairly possible. Most of the time you will get multiple orders from one person. Also the more sales you make the higher your commission rate.
So 20 sales would actually put you in the 6% commission rate bracket. So instead of $200 it’s actually closer to $300 per month.
From my experience Amazon usually has a 7 –14% conversion rate so you could expect to make closer to the $1,000 per month.

Convert Your Keywords into a Magnetic Post Titles
It’s an another tactic you can use these keywords to expand your keywords list and also adding certain keyword modifiers to your magnetic post titles for you post.
- Condor 3 Day Assault Pack “Reviews”
- 5.11 Rush 72 Backpack “Discount”
- Condor Urban Go Bag “For Sale”
- Tactical Backpacks “On Sale”
These keywords modifiers will help you to target different type of audience to buy your products.
If somebody looking for Reviews it means he’s at the crucial part of the research phase of the buying cycle. He’s more in the middle of the funnel. So this is the right strategy to convert your prospects into sales.
If he’s looking for a Discount or On Sale then he’s likely looking to buy the product on the spot and almost the deal is over now. So you already gave the perfect option for him to buy the product.
