Amazon Associate

An Amazon tip for authors, publishers or those maybe wanting to make some pocket money. Become an Associate at Amazon. The associates interface allows you to create links to items on Amazon, eBooks, Paperbacks, etc and tag them with a specific tag you create. Reports can then be run to show how many times the link was clicked, and if the person clicking on the link went on to purchase the product. This allows a way to track how successful a particular post, or advertisement worked. You also receive a minimum of 4% commission on the price of the item up to a maximum of 8.5% (depends on how many items you sell in a month). Becoming an associate is free.
