An Amazon Affiliate Tutorial

Ok, so I'm a little behind the times. Amazon's Affiliate Program has been around for a while--since 1996 to be exact. Everyone and their grandma must have an account by now, making millions off sales of "The Secret" that they linked to on their blog (this is actually the secret that the book talks about). But incase you happen to be Amish, here's a short tutorial on the whole process of signing up for an account and building affiliate links.

1. Visit and click the "Join now for FREE!" button. It requires that you create an Amazon account first if you don't already have one.

2. It then asks you for your contact information and has some questions about the website/blog where you'll be putting your affiliate links.

3. And that's all the information they need to get your account set up. You don't even have to submit your payment information (although, you'll want to do this eventually...after all, making a few bucks is why you're here, right?). As you can see in the screenshot, Amazon assigns you a unique "Associates ID". This important identifier will be stuffed into all the affiliate URLs you create so that Amazon knows who give money to when a sale is made. To start making links, click the "Learn More" link in the "Product Links" box.

4. It's really easy to create affiliate links. It just takes a few clicks of the mouse and some copy and pasting. First, search for the product you want to link to. I chose a book I recently read.

5. Next, find the product in the search results and click the "Get Link" button.

6. This will take you to the page that lets you build your link. There's a lot of options here you can play with, so take some time to explore this page on your own. Once you're done crafting the link to your liking, copy the HTML code in the "step 3" box and paste it on your site. It's no secret--it's that simple!
