to actually get started hereby creating a business
from your YouTube content. I’ve seen a lot of creators
get really focused in oncreating their content and
they actually lose sightand lose focus on things
that would actuallyhelp them make more money. Ad revenue is just a sliverof the amount of money
they can really make. Now there’s a lot of different waysthat you can get multiple
streams of income coming in,and I found the easiest is
actually working with Amazon. Now a couple months ago I
actually released a videowhere I was talking about Amazonlooking for YouTube creatorsto be a part of their new
Amazon Influencer Programand I know a lot of you
actually watched thatvideo and actually filled
out the applicationand haven’t really done much with it. Well today I’m gonna show you some things,some results that’s really
gonna change your mindof how to actually look at
the Amazon Influencer Programand how to leverage it in the right way,and also in the latter part of this videoI’m gonna give you my very best stuff. It is my secret tips. My seven powerful tips to make youan amazing Amazon Influencer
or something like that. Let’s go ahead and jump into
the strategies and tactics nowof how to actually leveragewhen you become an Amazon Influencerand how to actually make money. So how the program actually works is thatyou actually uploaded videothat is either showcasing a product,or in the description, or in the comments,you leave a trackable
link that sends peopleto your custom Amazon landing page. Now this is a page where
you can put any productthat is on Amazon and when
someone buys that producton Amazon then you actually
get paid a commission. You get that referral
fee that’s coming fromthe Influencer Program. Now the great thing about thisis that if they go and buy
something else on Amazonthen you actually get
paid on that as well,so it’s not just the things
that are on your page,but all on the Amazon sitesand I say sites because they
have a lot of different sites. It’s just basically saying
you sent them that trafficand anything they buy you
get a percentage on that. Now a common question that I
know a lot of people are askingis what is the difference between theAmazon Associate Program and
the Amazon Influencer Program?Well, the Amazon Influencer Programis actually an extension of
the Amazon Associate Programso the commissions are literally the same. The only difference is, it’s a lot coolerin the Amazon Influencer
Program because you have a lotmore options to customize what
your visitor actually seesand there’s a lot more things
coming down the pipelinethat you want to be a
part of this program. Now let me give you a strategythat I did for one of my clients. Now my client was actually coming outwith a music video here on
YouTube, and as you know,music videos are very difficult. They were doing a cover songand it was like intertwined
with a Star Wars theme. So I encourage my client toactually become an Amazon Associate,and they gave me some push
back ’cause they’re likehey, the songs only
going to be for a $1. 99and if we’re only getting
a percentage of the $1. 99it’s not worth it, but
what I explain to themand this is the real strategy here,it’s not that first initial
sell, it’s what they buy next. Now where this video
is all about Star Warsyou know you’re going to get
some hardcore geeks, like me that will want to buy other things on thatbecause Amazon is literally notoriousand really good at predicting peopleto buy other things so when
they go download the musicoh they see a costume for Darth Vaderand they buy it even though it’s $700and so you’re actually getting
a percentage on that $700’cause you’re bringing
the traffic into Amazonand it is wonderful. Now that client was super happyand they shifted their
strategy because of thatand ultimately they were making more moneythrough the Amazon Affiliate Programthen they were on, you know, selling musicand I know it’s crazybut hey, it’s all about making money here. Now you’re ready for your power tips?That’s right. The seven powerful tips tomake you an amazing Amazon Influencer. Well here we goTip number one. Now you want to list your
best selling productsat the top of your custom pageand also what you want to do isclick on each specific productand see if there’s any related productsor products that Amazon
is actually recommendingthat you actually add on to the cart. Now the reason why is
because Amazon alreadyhas a ton of data,and they’re able to see
what people are buying,and what they’re more apt to buy,so those are the products that youactually want to put
together on your Amazon page,and now tip number two. Select products that are
actually using Prime shipping. Now this is a big deal for mebecause I have spent a ton of money,don’t tell my wife, on Amazon. I mean way too much money,and one of the deal breakers for me,when I’m like selecting a productis does it come with
prime shipping, or not. I don’t want to pay for shipping. That’s why I have Amazon Prime,and so, you wanna make
sure that when you’reactually selecting products on your page,you are selecting products
with Amazon prime. Now tip number three. You wanna list the products
that you’re actually usingto produce your videos in the descriptionand you also wanna, at
times, in a couple of videos,here or there, just let people know that,hey, in the description below
you can find all my gear. You know, can see literally
everything I’m doingso if you’re a gamerand you’re doing live
streaming somebody might sayoh, man, he’s an amazing gamer,I want to know he’s what
chair he’s sitting on,what type of camera is he using,or what type of microphone,or headphones, whatever it may be. That’s where you want to put
it in the description below. Now a great power tip
from I guess it’s 3. 1,is that you don’t have togo through all your library and add them. If you have TubeBuddy,you can literally add
it to your descriptionby just putting it in there really quicklyand TubeBuddy does the rest. Now tip number four. Don’t always send themto your vanity URL or your shopping page. Now if you’re giving a product review,or you’re getting very specific in a videothat you’re using one specific productthat they need to get and
they can find it on Amazon,don’t send them to your pagewhere it has a million different options. Send them directly to the product. Now I know this is common senseand I think a lot of you were doing thisbut one thing I like to
do is really think ishow can I get that viewer to actually buy. You know, is it something
I need to say in the videoor is it taking away some optionsso it’s only one optionand it’s the best option for
them to actually to purchase. Now tip number five. Niche channels on YouTube, and also DIY,and beauty literally crush it on Amazon. I’m telling you, you don’t needa lot of subscribers or lot of viewsbecause these are hyper localized peoplethat are really interested
in a specific thingespecially if it’s DIY they
want to do it their selfand they want to be able to
learn how to build things. Let me give you a perfect example of this. Now in doing research for
this specific YouTube video,I was reading reaching out
to some of my subscribersthat actually signed up with
the Amazon Influencer Programand I came across Michael Lopezwhich I really liked his content. He was teaching people how to
build their own tiny boats. Now it’s not the little teeny boats. It’s like fishing boats, it’s
like really, really cool. Now he doesn’t have a ton of subscribers,and he doesn’t have a ton of views,however, his fans are literally engaged,and so when he teaches
them how to mod their boator how to build a boatand gives them specific supplieswhere do you think they go to?Of course, they’re going to
go to his custom landing pageand they’re actually
going to buy a product,and more product, and more product,because they’re learning
how to build something. Now in talking with Micheal,
this is really cool,he always says, hey you
know what, my ad rateson YouTube literally fluctuate
it’s always up and downand you never know what
you’re going to getbut with Amazon he is
growing month after month,month after month it’s getting better,where it’s even half of his income. You got to check out Micheal’s channel. I put it in the description down below. He’s doing some pretty cool things. You need to get some ideas from him. Now tip six, that’s right, six. The best type of converting videosare product review videos, that’s right. Product review video
videos really crush it,because people are ready to buy,and what they want is a
little bit more informationabout a specific product,
and what do they do,they either Google it or go on YouTubeto get someone’s review of a
particular product or service. Now in this case,what I would do is, do
6. 1, it’s like that,something like that, 6. 1Make sure the title of
your video is as followseither the product name review,or best product name,or what kind of product name should I get,or product name under $100. I mean the list goes on. Super, super power tip,because if you can get into the headof what people are searching forand how they’re searchingand you have a review,
they’re going to watch it,and then most likely
go to your Amazon pageto actually check out,and tip number seven,and no this is not a gang sign,you do not want to use a URL
shortening service like Bitly,because it doesn’t work with Amazon. You want to make sure
that all those clicksare trackable by Amazon. Now is there a tip that I missed?Go ahead and put that tip
in the comments below. There’s a lot of things that
we can learn as a community,’cause I know there’s
certain things that you dothat might help other people,so go ahead and put those tips in thereand if you want to sign up for
the Amazon Influencer Programwhich you really do,there is a link in the description below. You definitely want to
apply and be a part of itand if you’re not a part of
the Amazon Influencer Program,definitely join the
Amazon Associate Program. It’s a very, very big deal. This is something that
