Amazon Associates, Amazon’s popular affiliate marketing program, is getting some new features this May. Several new promotions mean affiliate marketing sites have more opportunities to make money… and there are some changes to Amazon’s affiliate rules as well.
If you’re unfamiliar with Amazon’s affiliate marketing program, Amazon Associates offers sites commissions on Amazon purchases made when users click on links featured on that site. By featuring links and images to Amazon’s inventory of millions of items, anyone can make money in a matter of weeks. (Disclosure: Almost Millions is a participant in the Amazon Associates affiliate program.)
