If you are starting as an Amazon affiliate and are looking at what are the best categories to sell products, look no further. This is based on information we’ve researched and what we’ve seen that works for our niche sites.
First off – here is a chart that outlines their fee structure – the more you sell, the more you make:
There are caps however in certain categories: Personal computers (including without limitation desktops, laptops, notebooks, tablets, and netbooks) have advertising fees capped at $25, and Amazon Instant Video as well as Amazon MP3 products are capped at $1.50 per item. So while computers may not be the best thing to sell, it certainly does not hurt your bottom line — but we concentrate on areas where there are no caps.
- Arts, Crafts & Sewing
- Camera & Photo
- Computers & Accessories
- Health & Personal Care
- Home & Garden
- Kitchen & Dining
- Musical Instruments
- Sports & Outdoors
Something to remember though, you should look for products that have more than 10 reviews (should be positive) and preferably a price tag of over $100.00 (you can list products less than $100.00 if they complement the main product).
So how can you find these products? You can search manually or use these mega-cheap tools (AMA Suite):
What do these tools do?
The Azon Keyword Generator – Generate thousands of keyword opportunities from the Amazon search engine – Use this tool to find exact match domain names that have high natural traffic. Only AMA Suite gives you this tool – otherwise try and do this manually. Go on, we dare you.
The Azon Top 100 Analyzer – Extract the top 100 products for ANY category on Amazon for the following …
- Top 100 bestsellers
- Top 100 top rated
- Top 100 hot new releases
- Top 100 movers and shakers
- Top 100 most gifted
- Top 100 most wished for
This is much easier done with the AMA Suite, than trying to do it manually
The Azon Product Inspector – Extract products from the entire Amazon site for any given keyword phrase – This tool is very useful for finding hidden affiliate gems on Amazon. Love this tool.
We used to do this manually before, and used a hodge-podge of scripts we created — they work and we use them from time-to-time since we can customize them; but the AMA Suite frequently gets us the information we need quickly, easily and with very little work.
What do you get? Not only the three products, but access to their exclusive members area which is packed with stuff:
- Software shown above
- Amazon Videos
- BONUS Videos
- MORE BONUSES (seriously we just logged in here and were amazed at the bonuses given…)
- Resources (some free, some paid)
Seriously you should consider AMA Suite.
