How to Make Money as an Affiliate with a Best Seller List

How to Make Money as an Affiliate with a Best Seller List

A quick one today, and something that has helped me earn over half a million dollars with the Amazon Affiliate Program – so let’s get stuck in!

This #TodayNotSomeday task is one I’ve used numerous times and is easily adaptable to other affiliate programs or even your own products, if that’s your monetisation model. The concept of a “Best Seller List” is simple, but effective, and something you can definitely do today to start seeing results.

In this episode I tell you how I came up with the idea, why it works so well, and how you can do it too, right now! I’ll explain how often you can create best seller lists, the different sources from where you can pull together the information, and also a few examples in the show notes of some of the ones that have been successful for me.

You can share your ideas on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #TodayNotSomeday. Good luck!

  1. I like the idea of a curated list like this. I’ve done something similar with my book blogs. Mine are curated to direct readers to other books similar to a particular book trilogy or series they’ve enjoyed. I have found great success in them and most of my affiliate book sales come from those posts.

  2. Great idea.

  3. If you go to a place like Empower Network, Clickbank or Commission Junction, the landing pages are already set up for you with your affiliate link. The work is done for you. See my link above.
    Next, use a good blogging platform to write several posts ABOUT what you’re selling…if you’re selling energy efficient light bulbs, write about carbon footprints, home lighting decor, feng shui using light in different areas of your home, etc…and then post about the product and add your link

  4. Nice idea. Use a good blogging platform to write several posts ABOUT what you’re selling, just write a review, may ez

  5. love this idea

  6. There is money for everyone to be earned in affiliate marketing. Making money online is like Water. There’s enough for everyone, but you have to “do the transformation work at full strength,” by creating “lots and lots of content,” and engaging in meaningful relationships before tapping into that “financial waterstream.”

  7. Darren, I just read your how to increase your affiliate earnings a few minutes ago on Amazon and it was BRILLIANT!

    Now, I’ve hear your podcasts here which I believe is a sequel to the earlier mentioned posts i’ve read. I’ve taken down some notes, though I haven’t finished it yet, but I’ll be sure to bookmar this for future reference.

    Sincere thanks and wishing more and more readers to come over to this site. Gonna share this one later on. :)
