6 Things To Do Today To Maximize Your Affiliate Commissions

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.

Time to Leave Amazon Associates?

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?

Earning Amazon Bounties Worldwide

If you’re an Amazon Affiliate then you are likely familiar with the commission rates for referred sales. You get X% commission after you refer a buyer for a given product. But some may not be as familiar with the bounties that the Amazon Associates programs payout.  

What’s a bounty, you ask? Besides helping Amazon sell products you can encourage your audience to things, such as signing up for an Amazon Prime trial, creating an Amazon Baby Registry, and recommending Audible subscriptions, which can earn you a decent-sized bounty. Amazon maintains a lengthy chart of various actions you can refer to, and the bounty paid for each. For example, successfully referring an Amazon Business account can earn you $15 per action. That could be much more profitable than referring video games with a 1% commission
