6 Ways To Make Extra Money On Amazon

6 Ways To Make Extra Money On AmazonIf you love shopping on Amazon you might have asked yourself whether you too could make extra money selling on this incredible site. Yes, you can make money on Amazon and save money when shopping there as well.

Take a look at these 6 ways to increase your income by selling on Amazon:

Join Amazon’s Affiliate Program

If you own a blog, you can join the Amazon Associates program. All you have to do is include links on your blog that redirect people to an Amazon product page.

If a customer buys a product from your link, you will earn anywhere from 4 to 10% of the sales. Even if they don’t buy the item you link to, you still get credit for anything else they buy.

Here’s a few examples of what blogs can link to:

  • a tech blog can link to the products being mentioned
  • a finance blog can link to Dave Ramsey books
  • a cooking blog can link to recipe books
  • a sports blog can link to sports equipment
  • a fitness blog can link to nutritional supplements

No matter what kind of blog you have, you can always find creative ways to link to Amazon product pages.

Pro tip: Have a friend who’s always buying things on Amazon? Send them your link and you’ll collect on average about 5 percent of everything they purchase.

Third Party Selling

You can sell your used items on Amazon just like you can sell them on eBay. Many people are selling things from around their home with Amazon’s third party selling option. If it’s time to clean out your attic or garage, why not place these items on Amazon and make some money out of it?

Amazon Mechanical Turk

If you carry out some online tasks through Amazon Mechanical Turk, you can earn some extra cash doing small repetitive tasks. Here are several examples of these “Human Intelligence Tasks” you can complete:

  • describe an image in 10 words or less
  • write product reviews
  • choose an appropriate category for each item
  • translate each sentence from English to Spanish

This might not seem like much, but if you carry out these activities on a regular basis, the money will add up.

Place Reviews & Earn Discounts

Have you ever read an Amazon product review that mentions that they received the product at a discounted price in exchange for leaving a review? You too can get in on the game at snagshout.com. You can score some amazing deals, with products being discounted as high as 90% off the retail price. The only thing they ask is to leave an unbiased review of the product you receive.

Selling E-Books

Amazon has become one of the hottest and most popular ways for authors to get published. It’s so easy that well-known authors and new authors alike are taking full advantage of this opportunity.You don’t even have to spend a great deal of money to get your book printed and you will keep as much as 70% of the revenue.

Write any kind of book you wish, and within minutes it will be created and published on the Kindle platform. In as little as two days, your book will be in Kindle stores all over the world.

Selling Hand-Made Items

You might think Amazon only sells new items but that’s not the case anymore. Amazon, like Etsy, allows users to sell your hand crafted items to customers. There is a 12% referral fee, but you could see nice profits selling in this niche. It doesn’t matter what type of crafting you do – if you made it – you can sell it!

Have you had any luck making money on Amazon?

    Surprisingly I had never heard about Amazon Mechanical Turk but it sounds interesting. However I definitely know about Amazon affiliate links which can be a gold mine when used well. Overall I don’t think I’ve never realized how much opportunity Amazon grants to others — so thanks!
