How To Make Money With Affiliate Stores
ECommerce and online retail are blooming, and every day more and more people choose to do their shopping online.
Amazon is, of course, the gorilla in online retail – just take a look at this jaw dropping stats…
That is some truly insane numbers.
And even though Amazon is big, they are only one player in a huge market worth over $1 trillion a year and growing fast!
Most of the big online retail networks, Amazon included, have affiliate programs. They will pay you a % of every order placed by visitors you send to them through your affiliate links.
Now you may have looked at for example Amazon’s affiliate program before and thought to yourself that it did not seem very interesting… after all, they only pay between 4% to 10% commissions right?
I know this may sound weird… but this is actually better than your usual run of the mill digital info product offering 50%, 75% or maybe even 100% commissions!
The reason is that unlike most info products, a site like Amazon has products that everyone both wants and need.
The Secret to building profitable affiliate store?
I used Covert Store Builder on 4 of my is niche stores because is a simple to use WordPress theme and it’s easy to install, as any WordPress theme. And very useful. I will explain why.
As you can see in the screenshot below, I used the theme to set up an affiliate store selling kitchen supplies and cookware – as a foodie that is something I have a personal interest in. But you can use the Covert Store Builder to build affiliate stores in ANY niche you want, including single niches or a big store covering multiple niches like for example Amazon itself does.
The design looks very crisp, clean and professional.
However, the best part is that I did not write a single word on that page myself! It’s all products and content imported straight from affiliate networks.
The look above is how a Covert Store Builder site looks “out of the box”. Yep, your first site will look this good without you having to fiddle with any settings to achieve it!
But of course, you can customize it as you like. All the options are on one simple page and can be changed easily!
Covert Store Builder also has inbuilt theme ads.
You can use these for anything you want, including, for example, Google Adsense.
Simply configure how many ads you want to display and where then put in the code for your ads. And your ads will show up in between the product listings in your store… ready to make you even more money!
