April has been a crazy month, to say the least. To top things off, between the global pandemic and the financial chaos, the Amazon.com affiliate program also made drastic cuts to about one-third of its categories intensifying the financial hardships of many affiliate marketers. I think most will chalk up April 2020 to be a pretty crappy month.
With many of our clients are facing a serious headwind with the commission cuts we wanted to come together with a short actionable list of things that can be done to make sure you aren’t leaving any money on the table and getting the most possible value from your Geniuslink account.
In the last 24 hours, since Amazon.com announced reductions in their commission rates, we’ve been talking to a number of our clients and are following countless conversations on social media. With both of these, two questions keep coming up:
1/ Is Amazon getting rid of, or even care about, their affiliate program?
2/ Should I keep using Amazon’s affiliate program?
Updated April, 14th 2020 to reflect the recent notice of commission changes coming on April, 21st 2020.
The Amazon.com affiliate program (a.k.a. the Associates Program) is the most popular affiliate marketing program in the world with one recent source citing “millions” of affiliate publishers. The Amazon.com Associates program has also evolved significantly since its inception in July of 1996 (as anything Internet-related should in the ~ 23 years of its existence). One of the most impactful changes is in how the affiliate program rewards the affiliate publishers who direct customers to Amazon and recommend various products.
One of the most powerful tools we have ever built are what we call Choice Pages. They allow you to link a single product to a variety of retailers. This does two things. One, it gives your audience the opportunity to buy the product from their preferred retailer. Two, it allows you to earn more affiliate commissions. Choice Pages are a game-changer.
