How to Create Amazon Affiliate Link [Tutorial]

How to Create Amazon Affiliate Link [Tutorial]

In my earlier post I talked about Amazon Affiliate program which is a good way to make money by selling product. Specially for gadget blogs Amazon gadget stuff works really good. Now, in this question I will deal with most common question asked by newbie Amazon affiliates: “How to create Amazon affiliate link”.

Extending earlier tutorial here I’m sharing how you can create affiliate link to individual product on Amazon. By now, I assume you have signed up as an Amazon Affiliate, in case if you haven’t you can sign up from here. You will be earning money from Amazon affiliate online when some one follow your Amazon referral link and buys something. If you are not really comfertable with creating affiliate links for individual products, I would suggest you to install Amazon widgets.

Or simply browse amazon site while logging into your amazon affiliate link. On every page at the top, you can find amazon Affiliate link generator which will let you grab amazon affiliate links instantly.

Step by step guide to create Amazon affiliate link:

Once you application is approved, login to your Amazon affiliate panel and click on Amazon links and banners and click on add product links now:

On the next page you have two options. Search for product or add ASIN/ISBN Code of individual product. I prefer second one as it’s fast that ways. You can find more information about ASIN/ISBN codes here.

How to Get ASIN code of Individual Product?

Now first step is to find the product which is relevant to your website/blog. You can search for any product by going directly to Amazon.com homepage. Once you have find the product, go to product detail part. In this case I’m getting ASIN code of this product.

Grab the Amazon Affiliate link for the product:

So now we have ASIN code of the product. Go to add a product link page. (Refer Image 1). Add ASIN code of the product and click on go. Refer to following image:

Now select the type of ad you would like to include. Once you have selected the type of ad, scroll below to get your HTML code.

Add the codes into your blog at your desired place and if it’s a good and relevant product, you will end up making good money. Specially for gadget blogs, you can write a review of phone and add Amazon link to buy the phone.

Here is a quick video tutorial for complete process:

    Harsh this is very long process of adding amazon affiliate link. If you are making amazon affiliate based niche website then it will take lot of time. It has some faults also like it generates iframe code, very lengthy code, image size also not good etc.

    There are some other solutions also. for example we can do it with easyazon plugin with the help of it we can generate very short text links, image links, call to action buttons, info blocks etc within few clicks and even without leaving wordpress blog. This is one of the amazing feature of this plugin.

    Some other cool features are :
    product pop up , link localization, add to shopping cart etc.

    In my point of view if you are serious in making money from amazon affiliate link then you should try this plugin. It is the combination of many plugins.

      Thanks for letting me know about this plugin and I will definitely have a look. I heard a lot about the same on Warriorforum but never got a chance to try it. Since the recommendation is coming from you, I will give it a shot. Thanks for adding value with your comment.

    I’m wondering why you went through all of those steps when you have the Amazon Associates toolbar installed (saw it when I watched the YouTube video)? With the toolbar present when visiting Amazon.com (or the local variety, ie Amazon.ca for Canada), these are the steps to use:

    1. Search for the product on Amazon
    2. Click the product you want to sell.
    3. Click “Link to this page” (Top left on the toolbar)
    4. A Pop-Up will appear with the customization options for the ad
    5. Copy the URL in the text field at the bottom of the pop-up as in your video.

    Done!

    I like using the affiliate link that has words only instead of the the one that has picture. I found out that it converts well.

    Reply
    • Harsh Agrawal

      Paul I believe you must be using it on your blog post..I believe for sidebar one with picture would be more effective..What’s your thought?
