What Is The Amazon Affiliate Program?
Simply put, the Amazon affiliate program (often referred to as the Amazon Associates Program) is the one and only – official – affiliate program for Amazon.com.
Amazon launched this program in June of 1996 making it one of the first affiliate programs ever and is now referred to as “the web’s popular affiliate program” (Amazon’s words not mine).
& in case you were wondering, yes – the Amazon affiliate program really is the most popular as it gives people everywhere and anywhere the ability to make money online.
That + the many benefits which I’ll mention next makes the Amazon Affiliate program one of the best affiliate programs you can use.
Why Is The Amazon Affiliate Program So Popular?
Huge Brand Power
Amazon is undoubtedly the KING of e-commerce and just about everyone whos ever used the internet knows who Amazon is and what they offer.
As an affiliate, this is huge for you because people like buying from websites they know, trust and (likely) have used before.
When you send people to Amazon.com, your job is half done as people already know the site, know what to expect and of course; you’re leveraging the world’s smartest conversion funnel ever created.
