Exciting news! A few weeks ago I was invited to join the Amazon Influencer Program.
This is an invitation only program and it is a really fun way to make money blogging.
Basically, you get to have your own page on Amazon where you can display products that you love.
Get the BLOGGING Newsletter
Subscribe to our blogging newsletter using the form below. I no longer publish blogging articles here, I only send them via email.
And it's not some obscure page either.
The URL is an easy to remember, easy to share URL so you can send traffic to it via your blog, social, or even verbally.
My URL looks like this: http://amazon.com/shop/AlmostPractical
What Do You Put On Your Amazon Influencer Page?
Because it is your page, you can do just about anything you want with it.
I use mine to display products that I talk about on this blog (like just about anything that has to do with the Instant Pot)
Most of the items are things that I personally use and love or things that I would like to have.
Of course, it is all very practical.
Don't Set It and Forget It
The best way to use your Amazon Influencer page is to make it a work in progress.
Add a new things daily. Remove items that are no longer relevant.
And most importantly have fun with it.
Your audience loves you for a reason – so they will be very interested to see what products you recommend.
Wouldn't you rather buy something based on a recommendation from someone whose opinion you trust?
This is your opportunity to be that person.
Where Do You Share Your Amazon Influencer Page?
Once you build your page up, you can't help but want to share it.
After all, it is filled with all of your favorite things.
You certainly can tweet it out and share it on Facebook.
But as a blogger, it is important to tell people about it in your blog posts – especially if you are writing a product related post.
Amazon also encourages you to share your page in your YouTube videos, if you do video.
Think about it – when you write a blog post or record a video, you are really connecting with people on a deeper level than just a tweet.
If they like the information that you are providing they will be more likely to want to see the products that you recommend.

You must have a social media presence on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.
I don't know the exact criteria they use to evaluate applicants, but the website does say that they look at more than just followers. They also look at the type of content and it's relevancy.
