Promoting Amazon products is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get started in affiliate marketing. The commission rates are relatively low when compared to many other affiliate programs, but they are also one of the most trusted and most popular online marketplaces in the world, with a low barrier to entry.
I would definitely recommend giving the Amazon Associates program a try, if you haven’t already. The experience you gain there, will definitely transfer over to other forms of affiliate marketing. And with the holidays just around the corner, now is really the time to start ramping up your efforts to take full advantage of that upcoming increase in traffic!
Do you have plans to promote products from Amazon during the upcoming holiday season? Are you already promoting products from Amazon? Any tips, gotchas or suggestions that you could share with others?

Chris, Amazon affiliate sales is definitely an easy way to begin earning money online. I have used it, and made a couple of $$ from products I did not recommend.

Thanks for the comment Marcus. It’s funny, just yesterday I got an email about making $ on Amazon from Andrew Hansen and in that email it said exactly what I mentioned, which is that it is almost a 50/50 split.
The email confirmed from Amazon’s own stats, that most Amazon affiliates make approx 50% from sales of products they are promoting and other 50% on completely unrelated products. That is definitely one of the benefits of promoting products on Amazon.
