Here are Guidelines to setting up an amazon site and becoming an Associate….
1. Create a website
before becoming an Amazon affiliate is to create a
website. You may not need a physical store in this business model, but in the
world of marketing, there must be a product.
If there is a product, there should be an avenue for showcasing it. This is what a
website does. Your website serves as a channel or should I say a ‘shop’ that
directs people to the product you’re marketing.
First and foremost, buy a domain name and register the domain to make it a
public entity. After registering your domain, get a credible site to host your site.
There are numerous sites that provide web hosting services. Godaddy, Bluehost,
Fatcow and wordpress are just few mentioned.
After setting up your site and picking the niche that you want to specialize on you
are good to go.
Before applying to become an Amazon associate, you must drive traffic to your
site first. Post contents that add value and brings more audience.
In marketing, you must earn your customers trust first. People will only buy from
you if they trust you. The same goes for affiliate marketing, if your site is
notorious for scams or pitching clients, you will find it hard getting people to click
on your link.
Who would see a trap laid out and still run into it? No one!
What is the essence of applying for an affiliate program when nobody visits your
site? More traffic translates to more conversion rate. After getting your site in
order, you are ready for the next step. Which is ‘registering for Amazon Affiliate
2. Register for Amazon affiliate program
To become a doctor, you must go to medical school right? To become an affiliate,
you must register for an affiliate program. To be a part of Amazon associate, you
must register with them. Fortunately, this is free.
To register: go to affiliate-program.amazon.com. Before signing up, you should go
through all terms stated as well as to make sure you understand every
information. There are various types of affiliate program base on your
geographical location. If you’re in Korea, you are expected to sign up for “Afilliate
Korea”. Since you are in Nigeria, “AFILLIATE NIGERIA” is the one for you.

most important piece of information needed is that of your website and payment
You will be required to fill out all details concerning your website, web traffic and
After successfully crossing these steps, you’ve become an associate.
3. Start looking through for product
This is the most important part of any affiliate marketing program. Signing up is
just a formality. The product determines how you will earn. The more people
click, the more money you will earn.
To choose the category of product you will want to paste on your site, you must
employ some criteria to yield result. Most often, bestselling products are top
choice for most affiliate marketers. If you’re enrolling for afilliate Nigeria, you
should have it at the back on your mind that people likely to click on your link will
be from Nigeria.
Products that are in demand in other places may not sell here in Nigeria. Before
pasting product, make a search about in demand product in your location. Dont
just go around posting link for any product you see around the web.
To Earn high, choose products with a high price rate. The mistake most people
make is to choose cheap products. The commission you get for a purchase of
$100 and $10 are not the same.
Imagine if ten persons are able to make purchase through your link for a product
of $10. That will be $1 as commission per one. That means you get $10 for $100
sales. If someone that post a link for a product of $100 makes 10 purchase, that
will be $100.
while advertising espensive product, you should also be strategic about it, most
people especially Nigerians love cheap things. They would rather go for goods of
$50 than $100. Who would buy a sneakers of $100 when there is one of #2500
Market evaluation shows that people most likely buy product that: solves their
problems, makes them happy or healthy, and those that also reduce cost. Some
goods may be expensive but if they fall in one of the categories listed above,
youre likely to get more sales.
So be wise with what you post. Your choice of product can make or break your
affiliate marketing carrer.
4. Post the link on your site
After arriving on the product you want to market, the next step is to copy the link
and paste on your site. You may decide to paste the link with text and images or
just text. The choice is yours.
For better result, it is advisable you post links with both text and image. People
are more likely to buy what they see.Links that carries images and texts are
observed to have a higher conversion rats than those without.
5. Post Links Regularly
Just as you need to post content regularly to keep traffic flowing in the world of
blogging, same goes for affiliate marketing.
For Amazon link, once clicked on by a potential buyer, lasts for 24 hours. This
means after 24 hours that click expires. Posting new link everyday is a better way
of making money.
Commissions paid depend on the type of product you are advertising. To increase
the amount paid, you must make at least 6 purchase every month. This means
you need to work hard to get visitors to click on your link.
To get more audience, you should be creative. Dont just copy the link and paste
somewhere on your blog or website. Create blog posts to promote it or salescopy.
Using social media to gain more audience isnt a bad idea either. Social media
platforms like facebook, instagram are places where you can get large audience.
These two are more like a business hub. With the right strategy, you can be
getting more than 6 purchase every month.
Conclusion: To Earn money as an amazon affiliate in Nigeria, doesnt happen by magic. Apart
from competition, it requires the right technique to excel. Affiliate marketing is a
profitable business but requires lot of effort. It isn’t a Get -Rich – Quick-Scheme.
