In this guide I’m going to show you how we and Amazon Niche Site Formula members are making serious passive income from Amazon’s affiliate program. These are the same strategies we’ve used to create simple sites that generate over $200+ per day. We’ve also made an additional $300,000+ these last few months selling some of our lower performing sites. The great part is you don’t need to be a marketing expert to achieve these same results.
Also make sure to read this post to the end. We have an awesome bundle waiting for you worth $287 dollars.
We’ve helped hundreds of others around the world achieve these same results! The screenshot below was sent to us by one of our ANSF members. They made over $243.63 dollars in a single day. The best part is that this is passive income. Once you set up a proper Amazon Niche Site it practically runs itself.
Before we get started I have a few questions I would like to ask you.
- Have you always wondered how you could make a true and predictable passive income from Amazon’s affiliate program?
- Have you tried to make real affiliate income, but can’t seem to get the results you’re promised?
- Would you like to know how we are able to build Amazon Niche Sites that generate $200 per day practically on autopilot?
If so then you’re in luck! Because In this guide I’m going to walk you through our process for creating a steady and ever increasing passive income from one of the largest companies in the world.
But, before I do I want to share some amazing facts with you and my top 5 reasons you should consider being an Amazon affiliate.
Did you know that online commerce is already a trillion dollar industry?
According to the latest Nielsen Global Online Survey, more than 85% of the world’s online population has used the internet to make a purchase. This is about 875 million people, up 40% in the last two years.
Online Commerce will reach 400 Billion in sales for America alone in 2018! Did you know Amazon is on track to reach 100 Billion in sales in the next year?
What if I told you there was a way to get a piece of that 1 Billion in Sales?
What If you didn’t have to deal with customers, drop shipping, purchase products, or all the other hassles of online commerce?
What if you could make passive income from Amazon no matter your experience level?
Well it’s all true!
Lucky for us Amazon has an affiliate program that lets us earn commissions for each sale we refer and I’m going to show you how to crush it with their Affiliate program with highly effective Amazon Niche Sites
Listen, Theres a lot of potential to earn money from Amazon, but you’re going to fail. I know that sounds harsh. Do you want to know why?
It’s because you don’t have a proven system to follow. Sure you can read a couple forums, blog posts, buy some training, and turnkey sites. That just doesn’t cut it these days! Trust me I know. I’ve spent thousands on training, software, templates, you name it I’ve bought it!
I’m not going to let you make that same mistake!
I’m going to transform you into an Amazon Niche Marketing Machine!
I know Amazon Niche Sites aren’t a new concept. The problem is everyone has been doing it horribly wrong. To be honest, I’m surprised just how wrong everyone has been going about the entire process. From proper research, building the right sites, SEO, and how to effectively market an Amazon Niche Site. Honestly I can’t blame them or you. There’s never been a solid system in place that shows and gives you all the resources necessary to succeed.
No wonder most people that try and make commissions from Amazon fail. Don’t worry! Because I’m going to change all of that.
I know what you’re thinking, why Amazon Niche Sites? Why should you care? Here are my top 5 reasons you should be an Amazon affiliate…
Reason 1: The way I’m going to show you how to build these sites make them true digital assets. They increase in value over time.
I actually just sold one of mine for 75X it’s monthly earnings. Think about it like this. If you created a niche site only making $500 per month then you could sell it for about $38,000. I’ve done it over and over again and I want to show you how to do the same.
Reason 2: Amazon is a globally trusted brand
Reason 3: Because of the size and scope of products available on Amazon it’s practically impossible to saturate. Market saturation is a big issue in the affiliate marketing world. With Amazon you don’t have to worry about that. You just focus on proper research and promoting the right products. Which I get to in Section 2
Reason 4: From my experience. Creating Amazon Niche Sites is the easiest, fastest, and most consistent way to start earning affiliate and passive income. Your only job is to get as many people as possible to Amazon.
The great thing about Amazon is that they are a conversion beast! At their highest peak they sold over 430 products a second! Crazy right?
All you have to do is focus on getting as many clicks to Amazon as possible. Amazon will do the hard work for you such as upsells, cross-sells, custom shopping experiences based on user activity, split testing, and everything else to convert your traffic to sales.
Reason 5: And my favorite part about being an Amazon affiliate is their 90 day cookie (this only applies if they add a product to their cart). This means if anyone buys a product from amazon in 90 days that came from your link… you make the commission. Here’s the crazy part. They don’t even have to buy the product you sent them there to buy. Even better is if they buy 1, 2, 5, or any number of products together you make commission on those products too….
Do you understand why this is so incredible? With advances in technology and Amazons ever growing resources it’s easier than ever to truly create a sustainable and predictable passive income stream… and I’m going to show you how to do it in this FREE guide.
Here is what I’m going to show you in the rest of this Free guide on building highly profitable Amazon Niche Sites.
Section 1: The 3 Components to a $1000+ Per Month ANS
Section 2: How to Do Proper Niche Research
Section 3: Creating the Perfect ANS
Section 4: The Traffic Trio Strategy
Section 5: How to Make Money with the ANSF
Section 1: The 3 Components to a $1000+ Per Month ANS
In this section I’m going to break down the key components to building an Amazon Niche Site that earns $1,000+ per month.
There are 3 main components to a successful Amazon Niche Site
- Proper niche research
- Building the right website
- Driving high quality traffic
Component 1 Proper niche research: This includes identifying sub categories on Amazon with several products in the $100+ dollar range with multiple 4+ star product reviews.
Then you extract that data from Amazon to build your keyword list. After you have your keyword list, average product price, and expected monthly traffic.
You then calculate your estimated monthly earnings for ranking for those keywords.
I use a custom built excel table that calculates all this data for you. You can’t find anything like it online. You just copy and paste the data and it tells you exactly what you can earn per month per Keyword for ranking on the first page or position of Google. This data is absolutely critical to dramatically improving your chances of creating a successful Amazon Niche Site. It’s why It’s one of my most popular templates inside the Amazon Niche Site Formula.
Component 2 Building the right website: Once you identify a worthy niche you have to build the right type of website. Here are the key indicators of a successful Amazon Niche Site:
- 5,000+ visitors per month
- Email capture capabilities
- Proper SEO optimization both on-page and off-page
- Target’s multiple keywords vs a select few
- Simple and user friendly navigation
- Clean and minimal design
- High quality content
- Different types of content for different phases of the buying cycle
- Strong backlink profile
- Multiple calls-to-action and links to Amazon
- Social integration
- Fast load times
There are actually 3 main site types I like to create and combine which I’ll talk about in Section 3
Component 3 Driving highly qualified traffic: High volumes of quality traffic will be the lifeblood of your Amazon Niche Site and is so for any business these days. After years of testing I’ve created a system called the Traffic Trio. It uses 3 different types of traffic to rapidly grow your sites to 5,000+ visitors per month in as little as 2-3 weeks. Those 3 traffic sources are:
- Search Engine Optimization
- Email Marketing
I use these traffic sources together to create the perfect traffic trio which always more than doubles the amount of commissions I earn vs traditional strategies taught by others in the past. Don’t worry I go in more detail in Section 4
I know what you’re thinking…
A site like that would take months to create and I would agree with you.
Not being able to build highly effective websites will be the number 2 reason you fail and quit altogether. I say number 2 because the number 1 reason is the lack of proper research. Without the right research you’re already setup for failure without realizing it. It’s not your fault though. You’ve never been taught the right way.
It’s why I created the Amazon Niche Site Formula.
So you can deploy perfectly SEO optimized ANS in any niche and any site type that you want in days instead of months. All you have to do is plug your data into the research templates, select which premade WordPress install package you want and add content.
Section 2: How to do Proper Niche Research
In this section I’m going to show you how to find the niches on Amazon that will make you the most money.
There are 3 phases for effective Niche Research:
- Finding the right sub category on Amazon
- Proper Keyword Research
- Creating Buyer Personas
PHASE 1: Amazon Research
One of the amazing things about Amazon is the way they structure their site. They make finding niches very simple. They’ve practically done the hard part for us.
You have to find a product category that meets this initial criteria: The category should have at least 100+ items that sell for $100 or more dollars with multiple 4+ star ratings. This doesn’t mean you only have to promote products that meet these requirements, but when you find a niche that meet these initial requirements your chances of success are greater.
Let me show you some examples on Amazon:
Electric Bikes: These Products are very popular with high prices
Video Game Chairs: Multiple Keyword Variations 100,000+ Monthly Searches Combined
Shower Heads: Over 1,000 Showerheads that sell for $100+ Great Reviews
PHASE 2: Keyword Research
After you’re confident the niche you’ve selected passed the first set of criteria. The next phase is to do thorough keyword research. I start by scraping all the names, prices and number of reviews for each product. I use an amazing free tool called Kimono to quickly scrape all the data I need from Amazon.
Once you have all the product info, you then modify them by removing any unnecessary words. You’ll notice that some of the product names are very lengthy and wouldn’t be what someone would search for in a search engine. After the list is modified. You then copy and paste those keywords into Google’s keyword planner tool. Google will give you hundreds if not thousands of keyword ideas.
Spend at least 1-2 hours selecting all the keywords that make sense for your niche. You should have at least 100+ Keywords when you’re finished.
After you export all your keyword data from Google your next step is to calculate the value of each keyword.
I use custom built excel table that automatically does this for me using a very unique formula I’ve developed and is currently only available to ANSF members. This is important because you can quickly prioritize which keywords to target first.
If you want to create your own custom table to analyze your keyword data you can. Here is the basic formula. It must be multiplied in this order.
Monthly Search Volume X Expected Traffic X Traffic to Amazon X Expected Conversions X Product Price X Commission Rate = Monthly Earning Potential for Keyword
In the keyword research template available to ANSF members. It automatically applies this formula to every single keyword you input. You can also quickly determine your likely earning potential for ranking on the first page vs the first position of Google, quickly measure it’s value for 1-12 months, and based on your commission rate from Amazon.
Once you know the value of your keywords you should map out your keywords by type. This will help you determine the type of site you need to make, and what types of content you need to produce.
For example: If you notice most of your keywords are product review keywords then it would make sense to build a site with mostly product reviews etc…
PHASE 3: Buyer Personas
Creating buyer personas is an effective exercise utilized by the most savvy brands around the world.
What are buyer personas you ask?
Buyer personas are fictitious characters used to represent your ideal customers. They are created using actual data and professional insight.
Say I wanted to sell tactical military gear. Here is an example of what a buyer persona would look like
See why this exercise is so important? You learn what motivates your target audience. You learn what their desires and fears are. You don’t need to spend countless hours doing this exercise. It’s really used for getting in the minds of your target audience. It will help you verbalize your content and the visuals you plan to use.
Doing this will give you greater insight into the niche you’re targeting and the people you’re marketing to. I know you don’t have an established site yet. So creating a persona would be mostly used for research.
Here is what I like to do when creating my personas:
- Skim through 3-4 magazines looking at the terminology and visual elements
- Read through several threads on niche related forums
- Analyze your biggest competitors sites using Alexa and Similar Web
- Use Google’s Display Planner Tool to analyze the demographic data
After you go through this research you will have a greater understanding of your niche, it’s products, it’s earning potential, and your target audience.
Look, I know this seems like a lot of work, but it’s critical for creating a highly successful ANS.
Section 3: Building the Right ANS for Your Niche
In this section I’m going to show you how to create the perfect Amazon Niche Site.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you by showing you how to install WordPress or setup hosting. There are literally thousands of WordPress tutorial videos on Youtube you can watch for free. Instead I’m going to show you the most important elements to a successful ANS.
The first thing I want to discuss are the 3 different types of Amazon Niche Sites.
- Ecommerce ANS
- Review ANS
- Blog ANS
Type 1 Ecommerce Amazon Niche Sites: These are sites that look and act just like a real ecommerce site. The only difference is when someone tries to checkout they are automatically redirected to Amazon to finish the order.
Type 2 Review Amazon Niche Sites: These sites strictly focus on product reviews with multiple and strong calls to action to the product on Amazon
Type 3 Blog Amazon Niche Sites: These sites have a mix of different types of content. Ranging from tips, ideas, news, and anything your ideal buyer personas would search for. An example would be 5 tips for increasing your pistol aim and then you could link to different pistol sights on Amazon.
If you remember from the previous section you should have categorized your keywords by keyword type. Depending on the keywords in your niche will determine the type of site you need to create. The last thing you want to do is build a site that doesn’t target the right keywords.
Sometimes it’s also a great idea to combine these site types.
For Example: You can have a Blog Amazon Niche Site and still do product reviews or you could have an Ecommerce Amazon Niche Site and still do Product Reviews and/or have a blog..
Another great strategy is to give each site type it’s own domain or subdomain. This gives you more chances to rank multiple times for the same keywords. You can also add them on a sub-directory if you want to focus on building the authority of 1 domain.
The goal is to create the right site that will produce the most suitable content for your most profitable keywords. You might want to read that again.
Do you see why doing all that research was so important now?
So what are the key ingredients to a successful Amazon Niche Site?
Well, you’ve already done the research, know which keywords you want to target, the types of content and site you need to create. The last step is to just build the damn thing!
Here is the advice I give to everyone that wants a well developed website, but doesn’t have the technical or graphic abilities.
Outsourcing projects has never been easier with sites like Elance, Odesk, Swiftly, Fiverr, and many other resources.
Here is my 5 step process to keep your ANS outsourcing costs under $500.
Step 1: Install WordPress
Step 2: Activate Premium Theme of Choice
Step 3: Install and Configure Plugins
Step 4: Get Logo from Fiverr
Step 5: Create content documents
If you follow these simple 5 steps you should be able to easily outsource your entire project for under $500 bucks. Just remember the more detailed you are in your instructions and the more you can accomplish on your own. The cheaper your outsourcing costs will be. This can still get pricey when creating several ANS.
It’s why over the years I’ve developed custom WordPress Install packages. They will save you hours of work, thousands of dollars and gives you the ability to launch a new site in days instead of months.
These are fully configured templates with all the necessary plugins and visual elements in place. I’ve completely customized them for optimum SEO. I’ve built over 100 niche sites in these last 7 years and know a thing or two when it comes to building highly optimized websites that convert.
Each custom WP install package I create is worth $500 each and I’m constantly creating new ones for the ANSF members. Here are some Amazon Niche Sites built using Amazon Niche Site Formula custom WordPress install packages.
There are 5 different types of WP packages I create and available to the ANSF community:
- Ecommerce WP Install Packages
- Blog WP Install Packages
- Product Review WP Install Packages
- Automated Product Video/Review WP Install Packages
- Private Blog Network WP Install Packages
Each package is specifically created to meet your SEO and content needs depending on the site you want to create. All you have to do is install the package and add your content and images to my content templates I’ve already created.
Section 4: The Traffic Trio
The entire traffic strategy revolves around 3 different traffic sources. I specifically picked these 3 because they work perfectly with each other. Those 3 traffic sources are:
- SEO (Organic Traffic): Besides the technical aspects of SEO. High quality content serves a major role for driving highly qualified organic traffic. Organic traffic is the central traffic source that fuels the entire traffic trio system. Backlinks also play a major part.
- Email Marketing: Building an active email list is the most valuable asset you can create for your ANS. It allows you to consistently market to your ideal prospects.
- Retargeting: Allows you to advertise to people that have already visited your website. Because SEO and Email are driving the majority of your traffic. This makes your retargeting ads much more effective.
Yes I know these sources of traffic aren’t revolutionary or cutting edge, but they work for any niche and always produce amazing results. I specifically focus on these traffic sources because they work perfectly together and always double and sometimes triple the speed you can reach the $1,000+ per month milestone. This simple traffic formula will also do wonders for your Amazon Niche Sites.
Let me show you how these traffic sources work flawlessly together:
Section 5: How to Make Money with ANSF
Let’s be honest with each other. The only reason you’re reading this is so you can learn how to make money from Amazon. That’s the end goal, plain and simple. Everything else I’ve shown you is a roadmap to get you there.
Would you like me to help you build a high performing Amazon Niche Site worth over $10,000 in just a few short months?
What if you could continuously repeat these same results over and over again?
Well you can if you join the ANSF and after analyzing all the ways my students and I have been making money. I was shocked at the multiple ways everyone was profiting! I want to share with you the 4 most popular ways ANSF members and I are making money.
Money Method 1 Rapidly Grow Your ANS Network – The most obvious way is by creating a network of ANS. Because you will have complete access to all my training, resources, templates, community and custom WP install packages. You can rapidly grow your network in a way you never could on your own. Some of my students are building 1 new ANS per week.
Money Method 2 Sell Your ANS for Large Lump Sums – This is my personal favorite strategy. I’ve made over $250,000+ in just the last couple months selling my sites. I love this method so much I created an entire module dedicated to selling your ANS. Let me give you an example of how valuable these ANS are.
(Screenshot above was last updated in April 2014. I’ve since sold many more sites)
One of my sites only earned $80 per month. I know it’s nothing crazy and is one of my lower performing sites.
I built the site using the same templates and strategies offered in the ANSF. I built a couple links and left it alone for 5 months. I didn’t update it, add no new content, or anything. I just flat out left it alone. It averaged about 2,000 visits per month and I ended up making around $500 total from this one site. I then flipped and sold it for $6,000. It would of taken almost 6.5 years to earn that much if I kept the site.
Why did someone invest that much into this site? It’s because of how it was built, growth opportunities, indexed for thousands of keywords, and had a small email list. It was a no brainier for a serious buyer.
Imagine if I actually continued to work on the site and ranked for more keywords. Check this out. If I would of taken that same site to $500 per month which only takes a few months of dedicated work.
Guess how much I could of sold the site for? Over $30,000! Yea that’s how valuable these sites are and I’m giving you all the tools you need to achieve these results.
Money Method 3 Sell Turnkey Sites – The average value of a turn key site built using the strategies and templates provided in the ANSF are worth at least $500. That’s with zero traffic or sales. The reason they are worth that much is because of the amount of research and optimization that goes into each site.
You could even turn this into a simple passive income stream only selling Turnkey Sites.
I actually took a different approach and sold 5 turn key sites for a total of $20,000 and spent $500 on ads. So I made $15,500 profit just selling ANS as a service.
The Actual Sales Page I used to Make $15,500 (Only showing top portion of page)
Money Method 4 Use Templates for Ecommerce Clients – The pre made WP install packages can be used for more than just Amazon Niche Sites. You can use them for real Ecommerce businesses. I usually charge $5,000 – $15,000 for an Ecommerce Site to build and optimize.
you could easily build an Ecommerce site in 1-2 weeks thanks to the templates and WP Install Packages I’ve developed and charge thousands.
Like I stated earlier. Online Commerce is a Trillion Dollar Industry. It’s not going to get saturated. You could create an entire business building and maintaining Ecommerce sites for others.
These are just a few examples of how you can profit by being a ANSF member. I’m always surprised by the creativity within the community.
