I’ve seen a lot of creatorsget really focused in oncreating their content andthey actually lose sightand lose focus on thingsthat would actuallyhelp them make more money. Ad revenue is just a sliverof the amount of moneythey can really make. Now there’s a lot of different waysthat you can get multiplestreams of income coming in,and I found the easiest isactually working with Amazon. Now a couple months ago Iactually released a videowhere I was talking about Amazonlooking for YouTube creatorsto be a part of their newAmazon Influencer Programand I know a lot of youactually watched thatvideo and actually filledout the applicationand haven’t really done much with it. Well today I’m gonna show you some things,some results that’s reallygonna change your mindof how to actually look atthe 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 Influenceror something like that. Let’s go ahead and jump intothe 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 trackablelink that sends peopleto your custom Amazon landing page. Now this is a page whereyou can put any productthat is on Amazon and whensomeone buys that producton Amazon then you actuallyget paid a commission. You get that referralfee that’s coming fromthe Influencer Program. Now the great thing about thisis that if they go and buysomething else on Amazonthen you actually getpaid on that as well,so it’s not just the thingsthat are on your page,but all on the Amazon sitesand I say sites because theyhave a lot of different sites. It’s just basically sayingyou sent them that trafficand anything they buy youget a percentage on that. Now a common question that Iknow a lot of people are askingis what is the difference between theAmazon Associate Program andthe Amazon Influencer Program?Well, the Amazon Influencer Programis actually an extension ofthe Amazon Associate Programso the commissions are literally the same. The only difference is, it’s a lot coolerin the Amazon InfluencerProgram because you have a lotmore options to customize whatyour visitor actually seesand there’s a lot more thingscoming down the pipelinethat you want to be apart 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 onYouTube, and as you know,music videos are very difficult. They were doing a cover songand it was like intertwinedwith a Star Wars theme. So I encourage my client toactually become an Amazon Associate,and they gave me some pushback ’cause they’re likehey, the songs onlygoing to be for a $1. 99and if we’re only gettinga percentage of the $1. 99it’s not worth it, butwhat I explain to themand this is the real strategy here,it’s not that first initialsell, it’s what they buy next. Now where this videois all about Star Warsyou know you’re going to getsome 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 whenthey go download the musicoh they see a costume for Darth Vaderand they buy it even though it’s $700and so you’re actually gettinga percentage on that $700’cause you’re bringingthe traffic into Amazonand it is wonderful. Now that client was super happyand they shifted theirstrategy 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 yourbest 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 Amazonis actually recommendingthat you actually add on to the cart. Now the reason why isbecause Amazon alreadyhas a ton of data,and they’re able to seewhat people are buying,and what they’re more apt to buy,so those are the products that youactually want to puttogether on your Amazon page,and now tip number two. Select products that areactually 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 withprime shipping, or not. I don’t want to pay for shipping. That’s why I have Amazon Prime,and so, you wanna makesure that when you’reactually selecting products on your page,you are selecting productswith Amazon prime. Now tip number three. You wanna list the productsthat you’re actually usingto produce your videos in the descriptionand you also wanna, attimes, in a couple of videos,here or there, just let people know that,hey, in the description belowyou can find all my gear. You know, can see literallyeverything I’m doingso if you’re a gamerand you’re doing livestreaming somebody might sayoh, man, he’s an amazing gamer,I want to know he’s whatchair 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 putit in the description below. Now a great power tipfrom 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 addit 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 andthey 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 todo is really think ishow can I get that viewer to actually buy. You know, is it somethingI need to say in the videoor is it taking away some optionsso it’s only one optionand it’s the best option forthem 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 interestedin a specific thingespecially if it’s DIY theywant to do it their selfand they want to be able tolearn how to build things. Let me give you a perfect example of this. Now in doing research forthis specific YouTube video,I was reading reaching outto some of my subscribersthat actually signed up withthe Amazon Influencer Programand I came across Michael Lopezwhich I really liked his content. He was teaching people how tobuild their own tiny boats. Now it’s not the little teeny boats. It’s like fishing boats, it’slike 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 teachesthem 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 togo to his custom landing pageand they’re actuallygoing to buy a product,and more product, and more product,because they’re learninghow to build something. Now in talking with Micheal,this is really cool,he always says, hey youknow what, my ad rateson YouTube literally fluctuateit’s always up and downand you never know whatyou’re going to getbut with Amazon he isgrowing 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 videovideos really crush it,because people are ready to buy,and what they want is alittle bit more informationabout a specific product,and what do they do,they either Google it or go on YouTubeto get someone’s review of aparticular product or service. Now in this case,what I would do is, do6. 1, it’s like that,something like that, 6. 1Make sure the title ofyour 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 likelygo 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 URLshortening service like Bitly,because it doesn’t work with Amazon. You want to make surethat all those clicksare trackable by Amazon. Now is there a tip that I missed?Go ahead and put that tipin the comments below. There’s a lot of things thatwe can learn as a community,’cause I know there’scertain things that you dothat might help other people,so go ahead and put those tips in thereand if you want to sign up forthe Amazon Influencer Programwhich you really do,there is a link in the description below.
