As an Amazon Associate, you’re probably getting geared up for Amazon’s 2016 Black Friday rush. Last year, Amazon alone counted for roughly 36% of all eCommerce sales on Black Friday, so it goes without question that November 25th presents a great monetization opportunity for all Amazon Associates.
And since Black Friday has become an international phenomenon no longer isolated to the US, it’s important that your Amazon Black Friday affiliate links are optimized for your international audience. If you’re a savvy Amazon Associate using the Genius Link service to geo-localize your Amazon links, you’re already a step ahead of the game. However, it’s important to know that the service isn’t able to “auto-magically” globalize links to Amazon’s Black Friday promotional pages like we can with products links (links that include an “ASIN”) through our patented link translation. This has because Amazon has created a unique landing page to promote Black Friday for most of their different global storefronts.

Once you have entered a destination for each country where Amazon has a promotional Black Friday page, your link should look like this:
Note: The URL for the Amazon US Black Friday promotional page has been specified as the “Default” destination for this link. This means that anyone who isn’t in one of the other specified countries will be directed to this destination.
Click “Save” and your intelligent link for all of the Amazon Black Friday promotional pages is ready to go!
Monetizing Amazon’s Black Friday
This link can now be shared as you would share any of your Amazon Associates links with your audience.
