What are Amazon Native Ads and how are they used for affiliate marketing?
Amazon is one of the biggest eCommerce retailers in the entire world. They also have one of the best known affiliate marketing programs too. The way affiliate marketing normally works is that you join a company’s affiliate program and once they approve you to join you can then get started making money by placing links online for people to go to and buy a product. You typically have to put in the work by advertising a product online through YouTube, a blog like this one, or some social media platform in order to get people clicking on your links and generating sales.
Amazon gives you several different methods to sell their products with text link, image links, and images with text links. The method that we will be talking in this post will be actually adding Amazon native ads to your website as the method for affiliate marketing. Whenever someone buy products through an Amazon affiliate’s link, they always get a certain percentage of that sales for themselves. The amount and percentage you can get for each sale varies. This is also the case for any product bought through any Amazon native ads you place on your site.
