10 Places for Affiliate Links in Amazon Affiliate Sites

affiliate links we’re gonna look at ten
places you could put affiliate links forAmazon affiliate niche sites I’m gonna
try to show you specific places we’relike really good web sites are using
these as much as I can so I can’t showevery single example but I’ll do as many
as I can so that you can see like inreal life where people are putting links
my name is Doug Cunnington and thefounder of niche site project I talked
about Amazon affiliate marketingproductivity and project management
before we dive in I want to mention thatI do full tear downs for many of the
sites so I’ll place links to thosevideos so you can see the tear downs for
the various sites we’re gonna take alook at I look at different products and
it kind of gives you an overview of youknow different things that are good and
or bad for different sites so withoutfurther ado let’s take a look at the ten
places you could put affiliate links foryour Amazon affiliate site number one
we’re gonna look at the wire cutter inthe first place you can put affiliate
links is in your first paragraph so thewire cutter is a New York Times Company
as you can see at the top this is one ofthe sites that I’ve reviewed a couple
times so thing that we see right off thebat is I just arbitrarily chose this
review the best sheets and you see theyhave not one but two affiliate links
right here and that’s just in the firstparagraph so that is a great place to
catch the people that are in a hurry nowsure this is a long review many many
thousands of words but some people justwant to see the top couple picks and
they don’t want to read the whole thingso the first paragraph it’s a great way
to serve those visitors number two iscaptions so we’re gonna take a look
again same review just further down thepage we can see that the wire cutter has
some captions they have basically afeatured product box here it’s their own
custom box you could come up with yourown if you want to but basically they
have a text link we can sort of think ofthis as a caption and this is an
affiliate link now quick note this is anaside not part of the caption links but
this button is a link the image is alink so just in this featured called out
area they have you know captions theyhave different colors they have a blue
box red text buttons there’s many thingscalling things out here there’s many
areas to call things out here but Ithink captions are underutilized and
personally I don’t use buttons but Ioften will put an affiliate link in the
caption not unlike the wire cutternumber 3 we’re gonna jump over to
another site called thank your skin andagain this is another site I’ve reviewed
so be sure to check out the link where Igo deep and as you can imagine you know
check out this beautiful shiny head Idon’t use shampoo so I thought it’d be
funny to look at the best shampooarticle here and look at tables so there
are a couple things as we scroll downthat we could point out here so you can
put in your table affiliate links andthis is a great area to put affiliate
links now these specific areas thatjumps down to you know the different
posts and stuff but basically this tableis a way to put an affiliate link so you
could place a button if you want to tocheck the price of course this is a
great way to entice someone to go clickthis link get cookie go over to Amazon
because there’s intrigue there right youwant to know there’s curiosity you want
to know how much it cost additionallyanother cool thing here is they don’t
put an image right so thank your skindoesn’t put an image here and that means
that you may be curious on what it lookslike so they don’t do this here but
number 4 the fourth tip is if you placethe column in here or even in the awards
section if you just had a little call toaction that says see image on Amazon
again it serves the curious visitor thatwants to know what it looks like sure
Shampoo it’s probably in a bottle whoreally cares what it looks like but if
it’s something else like sheets or apair of shoes or a digital camera or
something people care what it looks likeand they want to see the image so if you
put a call to action that serves thatit’s a great way to make someone click
that link and really be curingabout what it looks like number five
images so we’re gonna look at footballsnack helmets again a very popular
review this is actually a public casestudy so if you want more information on
it be sure to check out the full teardown and potentially some more
information about this site we’ll take alook at the Cleveland Brown snack helmet
which is my wife’s favorite team youknow it’s just a family team that they
follow so as we scroll down this link orthat sorry this image over here isn’t a
affiliate link but they do have thisfeature box down here this is an
affiliate link even though the image iscut off that is a place you can put an
affiliate link now me personally I don’tusually make an image the affiliate link
but it is an option some people clickthem number six is to place a call to
action sort of at the end or beginningof a section that is what this is again
on the cleveland browns snack helmetreview page this is a call to action get
your cleveland browns snack helmet onamazon and it’s in a larger font it’s i
would maybe make it a different color tomake it stand out a little bit more but
it’s larger and you could tell that it’sa link so that’s a great way to place
the affiliate link number seven is toplace your affiliate links in the
sidebar so this is another reallybest-in-class
type site outdoor gear lab here and youwill see a specific review for the
mountain hardwear cloud seeker jacketthere are affiliate links in the sidebar
here so they have a price listed fordifferent affiliate programs that
they’re part of and you can see thetheir affiliate links so you can compare
the prices take a look they obviouslyhave an api or some sort of programmatic
way to pull the pricing here to adhereto the Terms of Service for the
different programs but the sidebar is agreat way to you know place it
especially you know this is a prettylong review thousands and thousands of
words but maybe you’re just interestedin seeing the best price and you can get
to it quickly right here number eight isan end
post call-to-action or widget so againwe’re on outdoor gear lab or on a
different jacket but this specificreview I won’t scroll through the whole
thing basically there are not manyaffiliate links on these reviews for
specific products there’s a link in thesidebar like I was showing you before
but they don’t put too many affiliatelinks and what they do instead is they
have this box at the bottom and youcould check out again different
retailers and this is an affiliate linkhere you could also like go using this
button to see it right quick call toaction you could place your affiliate
links at the end of the post theadvantage is you know if someone read
this multiple thousand word post on aspecific jacket or whatever the product
is you know they’re really interested init so if they make it all the way down
here they’re probably interested inbuying the product somewhere great place
to put it I would maybe put a coupleother affiliate links like in the places
were mentioning such as you know at theend of a section just to give people if
they’re sold on it they can get over toit easier these are really long reviews
so I think outdoor gear lab knows whatthey’re doing they have an early call to
action up at the top like I was showingand then they have one at the bottom to
number nine is back to football snackhelmets and they are utilizing this
right here so this is pretty cool thisis an Amazon native and you can see it’s
really well formatted they’re using youknow the stock image from Amazon the
price is listed you can see if it’sprime or not and you also see the number
of reviews so all this information ispulled through an ad system that’s
created by Amazon so you know it’sadhering to all the policies with Amazon
Associates that’s one of the big fearsthat people have that they are listing
the price and they’re not supposed to orusing an image that they’re not supposed
to or listing the number of reviews orsomething like that this takes care of
it and you can see ads by Amazon righthere you can tell it’s a native ad and
these are responsive they work reallywell you always know that you
not violating any Terms of Service theselittle pieces of code these little ad
segments that you could put in here youcould place those anywhere you want and
they’re responsive and look good on amobile device or an iPad or a tablet or
whatever so you know they’re gonna lookalright no matter what the person is
viewing the webpage on number ten issomething I couldn’t find anywhere so
let’s go to like big screen again numberten is a rarely used technique but super
effective to get a high click-throughrate you put a call to action somewhere
in your review that says see realreviews on Amazon and you can link
directly to the Amazon review page forthat product and that’s one of the huge
values with Amazon is you could actuallysee like reviews from actual owners
verified owners too so that’s a verypowerful call-to-action so I’d like to
put this in my user impression sectionand you know you can’t quote or copy the
information from Amazon reviews but youcan link to it and that’s a again a
great call to action I couldn’t find itanywhere specifically on websites to
show you but that’s a great way to getpeople over really high click-through
rate on those kind of links and it’s agreat way to add an affiliate link to
