If you have an Amazon Associates account and you have a WordPress site, then you can create an Amazon aStore. An Amazon aStore allows associates to configure an entire online Amazon store. The store that you create looks like you are right on Amazon. The shopping experience that you create on your website can contain selected product groups or the entire range of products offered by Amazon. The great thing about your store is that it can be seamlessly integrated into your WordPress website with just a single line of HTML code.
There are a lot of myths out there about the creation of an Amazon aStore.
- Myth #1 – It is difficult to create an integrated Amazon store. This is not true. Once your store is created, you paste one line of HTML code on your WordPress site.
- Myth #2 – You need to be a professional Web Designer to create an Amazon aStore. This is not true either. Anyone who can cut and paste and create a WordPress can create an Amazon store.
- Myth #3 – Creating an Amazon aStore will take a long time. This also is not true. There are step-by step directions on the Amazon site that you can follow. Creating a store does not take that long to create. You can create your entire store in less than 2 hours.
- Myth #4 – Creating a good looking Amazon aStore takes a lot of money. This last myth is not true either. You will be using the resources you already have to include your WordPress website and your Amazon Associates account.
The Amazon aStore has many benefits.
- Benefit #1 – You can create another stream of income on your website. People trust Amazon and if your store looks just like Amazon, people are more likely to trust your site. People know and trust Amazon; therefore, they are comfortable with buying from Amazon. They are more likely to buy products on your site from Amazon than from your own shopping cart.
- Benefit #2 – You can include products on your site that are related to your content. For example, if your site is about dog training, then you can include all types of products from Amazon that are related to dogs.
- Benefits #3 – You can earn income from products that people buy even if the products are not part of your store. Even though you structure your store to be niche specific, people can still search the entire Amazon site and buy other products. As long as they buy those other products within 24 hours of going to Amazon through your link, you can earn a commission on those products as well.
As you can see creating an Amazon aStore is a another great source of affiliate income.
