Add the Amazon affiliate links to your blog posts without sounding desperate for sales. I don’t just say buy this or that, I usually write about something useful that happens to mention a product or I write a product review and link to the product on Amazon.
For example, I may say something like “I drain the oil in a round catch pan” – “round catch pan” is the phrase I’m using to link to that product on Amazon. People probably don’t need one, but some might click on the link just to see what I use and that might be just enough to generate a small commission if they buy something else.
I have posts that are heavily linked to Amazon products and some that only have a single Amazon affiliate link for the sole purpose of keeping things balanced out. My heavily linked posts are typically some type of buyers guide or an article that references many different products.
My money-making affiliate links are things I was searching for. If you’re googling about something, chances are your target audience is too, so take advantage of that and make a post out of it.
