Amazon Affiliate, Zelf, and Stan Store
If you’re an Amazon seller, then you have the option of using one of three different affiliate programs: Amazon Affiliate, Zelf, and Stan Store. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks, so let’s take a look at each of them and see which one is best for your business.
Amazon affiliate is a way to earn money by referring people to Amazon. You can earn up to 10% of the price of the items that your visitors buy. This can add up quickly if you have a lot of traffic on your site, so it’s a great way to make extra income without purchasing products yourself!
- Shorten links using bitly or another service
– Put your affiliate links into a shortener like bitly. This makes them easier for people to share on social media and email, which helps you drive traffic back to your site.
Zelf is a marketplace for selling digital content. Think videos that you create and post on YouTube, Instagram, and Tik Tok. It’s more like Etsy than Amazon, but with all of the same features you’d expect in an online store:
- You can set your own prices and keep 100% of the revenue from sales
- You can create multiple storefronts based on different categories of products
- After signing up, you’ll be able to upload your own items to the catalog so that companies can find you and your content. The best part of that is that you don’t need to have a large following to get paid for the content you create.
Stan Store is a platform that offers you , as a creator, a wide variety of options to start selling your own products.
The great part is that you can sign up for a free trial account with this service!
Each of these three options comes with different pros and cons.
Amazon Affiliate is a great option for those who are just starting out with affiliate marketing and are looking to get their feet wet. It’s also the best option if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on building your business, since the fee for Amazon affiliate is only $0.99 per sale!
However, there are some downsides to this program. First of all, you won’t be able to earn commission on purchases made by people who visit Amazon through your link but don’t buy anything (also known as “click-throughs”). You also can’t choose which products appear in your sidebar – they’re chosen by Amazon based on relevance. Lastly, there isn’t much control over how often someone clicks on one of your links because they may not see it at all if they’re looking at something else or reading an article on another site (like ours!).
I am not sure of the downsides of the others yet, because I have just started using them myself. I will keep you posted on use of them. The good, bad, and ugly!
I hope I’ve helped you understand the pros and cons of each of these options, so that you can decide which one is best for your business. If you are still unsure about which option is best, then I recommend trying them all out in order to see what works best for your specific needs.
