Amazon.in has launched in India as an online superstore and along with the big brand’s superstore, they have also launched an amazon.in affiliate program thereby opening doors to all Indian website owners and bloggers to make a share of Amazon’s business and sales in India. All you have to do is sign up as an affiliate for Amazon.in and refer users to purchase products from their online store to earn 10% of each sale generated.
As of now Amazon.in has only launched Books and movies through their online store and have plans to expand their portfolio with more category of products like mobile phones, cameras etc. Based on the previous launches from Amazon in different countries, its evident that banking on Amazon as a business partner to earn commission is an impressive idea.
Ana example of an Affiliate marketing post is this article I have written sharing the top 10 Indian Books to read for the year 2013. This article links to the amazon store for each book reviewed and customers reading the review can purchase books from the website earning a 10% for me as a easy commission! With more products added in future, like mobile phones, imagine selling a Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile for 40,000 Indian rupees – You earn a straight 4000 Indian Rupees as easy commission.
