You are missing out on Amazon commissions and wasting way too much time adding affiliate links.
Seriously, you almost certainly are. Want to rectify this and make more money as an Amazon Affiliate?
Of course you do!
So, in this post, I’m going to show you exactly how to do just that with the EasyAzon Amazon link plugin.
In this EasyAzon review, we’ll look at how to:
- BOOST your commission by automatically directing a visitor to their country specific Amazon site.
- Add Amazon affiliate links to WordPress in the quickest way possible.
- Extend the time period Amazon gives you to earn a commission from 24 hours to 90 days.
Before we dive into what I think is hands down the best Amazon affiliate WordPress plugin, did you know that during Amazon Prime Day in 2016, Amazon sold 636 items per second?
That’s a lot!
It’s why so many of us bloggers and affiliate marketers love the big old Amazon ship.
It’s a brand people trust (apart from ‘that’ tax thing in the UK) and they shift products. FAST.
So it’s often one of (if not the) affiliate program bloggers and affiliate marketers turn to first, as well as stay with for years to come.
BUT. And here’s the problem…
Have you ever faffed around for what felt like f.o.r.e.v.e.r. diligently copying and pasting links from Amazon into your precious WordPress blog or affiliate site? Then thought, heck, I’m going to lose my mind in a minute? This is soooooo mind numbingly boring and my eyes are about to turn into stalks.
So what if I told you there was a plugin where you could easily add Amazon links from within your WordPress site in seconds?
Yep, bypassing Amazon and it’s link generator once and for all (no offence Amazon).
Well, there is and it’s called Easyazon.
What exactly is the Easyazon plugin?
# Easyazon is the quickest way to create Amazon affiliate links from within WordPress
EasyAzon 4 is hands down the quickest way to create Amazon affiliate links from within your WordPress post editor. You can easily create text or image affiliate links direct to any product on Amazon, without going through the mind numbing steps of manually creating links from within the Amazon website itself.
Whiz poppingly good, yes?
But that’s not all.
I live in the UK and spent weeks agonising over whether I should direct my affiliate links on my first affiliate site to amazon.co.uk or amazon.com. In the end I opted for UK, then thought I’d made a mistake, so I decided to take the stupidly long winded approach of adding TWO links for each affiliate product – one for US customers and one for UK customers.
It not only looked insanely clunky, it took freakin’ ages and also got confusing – so ultimately the process wasn’t helping my brand or my sales much. Big thumbs down.
So if you’ve ever torn your hair out because you can’t find a way to automatically re-direct people to their country specific Amazon site, I’ve got some more good news.
Easyazon has you covered for that too, with it’s automated link localiser.
# Easyazon has a built in link localiser that can seriously boost your commission
And it was this link localiser that quadrupled my commission, as despite living in the UK it turned out my US sales were way more lucrative.
How does the EasyAzon 4 link localiser work?
By taking your Amazon affiliate link and displaying a link based on the actual locale of your visitor.
Here’s an example:
Let’s imagine you have a blog that offers rather persuasively good reviews on the latest drones.
A chap in Australia has found your blog on Google and is drooling over a newly released drone complete with camera and gps live view. It’s got a hefty price tag and would bring in a nice chunk of commission. He clicks through to Amazon with the intention of buying it whilst his wife is in the bathroom (his wife is sneakily buying her own drone via the iPad, whilst pretending to be on the toilet).
Except it’s not.
Because your blog sends him (and her!) to Amazon US. Which isn’t much good when you’re in Melbourne.
So the commission is lost. Quack quack oops.
But with EasyAzon, you could have automatically redirected your customers to Amazon Australia and nabbed the commission (both of them:)).
The screenshot below shows how easy it is from within your WordPress editor:
From the screenshot, you can see that Easyazon has identified you want to add an affiliate link related to drones.
So it’s already found a list of drone related products on Amazon for you (and ALL from within your WordPress editor).
All you need to do, now, is select a text or image link, enable link localisation and Easyazon will automatically send visitors from your blog to their country specific Amazon site, whenever they click on an affiliate link. And of course, you get the commission from any sales.
Oh and just incase I’m making it sound at all complicated, it’s NOT! I’m not overly technical and I found the whole thing an absolute breeze.
Easyazon can lead to HUGE commission boosts
So, in practice EasyAzon 4 means you have the capacity to earn commission from sales in any country where Amazon has an affiliate program. That means the US, UK, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, China and Japan (plus many more).
All you need to do is sign up for the country specific Amazon affiliate program (free to join) and check a box in the Easyazon settings to enable link localisation.
You’re then all set to profit from international traffic.
Not sure where your blog traffic is coming from?
If you’re serious about affiliate income, you should be.
Below is a screenshot of my blog traffic by country for a certain time period.
Despite being in the UK, this report clearly shows that my blog traffic is hugely US specific.
So if I was merrily sending all my US visitors to Amazon UK, it’s not only a bad user experience for the visitor, it’s wasted traffic and lost commission for me (frowny face).
But by looking at this analytics report, I was able to identify that my largest potential for Amazon commission was going to come from:
- Amazon US
- Amazon UK
- Amazon Canada
- Amazon Australia.
So I spent a few minutes joining the above country specific programs, switched on link localiser in EasyAzon 4 and, hey presto – EasyAzon did the rest. Visitors were automatically directed to their country specific Amazon site, whenever they clicked on an affiliate link, and I received a huge commission boost.
How to setup Google Analytics (if you don’t already have it)
If you’re not using Google Analytics, I suggest you join up straight away. It’s free, easy to setup and will offer you a tonne of essential information about your WordPress site.
Then, once you’re all setup, go to Audience > Overview Report and this will tell you where your blog traffic is coming from.
Does EasyAzon do anything else?
It does. The ease of adding affiliate links and link localisation is easily worth the price tag, but EasyAzon also enables you to:
# 1 – Show an Amazon product popup feature on your blog
The product feature popup enables you to show your visitors a product info popup box appear whenever they hover over an affiliate link.
This feature is completely optional, but what’s great about it, is that it offers visitors more product details and adds a further incentive for people to click through to Amazon (what we want, right?)
# 2 – Automatically add products to a customer’s shopping cart
This is a super nifty feature and allows you to automatically add a product to a customer’s Amazon shopping cart, when they click on an affiliate link from within your site.
Why would you do this?
Because the standard Amazon affiliate link gives you 24 hours for a customer to make a purchase, in order for you to earn a commission. Sometimes, though, people don’t make the actual purchase within that 24 hour time frame, especially with high priced items, where they may mull the item over for a few days before they actually buy it.
However, if an item is actually added to a customer’s shopping cart, this 24 hours is extended to 89 days. In practice, what this means, is that you have an extra 89 days to bag a commission. Pretty good, right?
Is easyAzon easy to install?
Yep. There are some steps you need to take to set it up – but these are extremely well documented in easy to follow, (quick) setup videos. They explain the setup much better than I could – follow them and you can’t go far wrong.
How much does EasyAzon cost?
EasyAzon 4 (there is a free plugin but it doesn’t have link localisation or the other added bits) is currently $47 for use on unlimited personal websites. This is ONE off cost (not an annual subscription) and I made the fee back (and more) in increased commissions in not time.
Here’s a review from Spencer Haws of of NichePursuits (Spencer is very well respected in affiliate marketing field if you’re not familiar with him):
‘I use EasyAzon on all my sites monetized with Amazon now. The plugin makes adding and managing affiliate links so much faster and easier. I recommend it all the time to other people building Amazon sites; its a great plugin.’Spencer Haws, NichePursuits
