Top 5 Amazon Affiliate Mistakes Beginners Make


Not buying the product.

This is a mistake that many people make. They don’t buy the product, which means they don’t really believe in it. If you don’t believe in your own product, how can you expect others to? It’s important that you know all about the product before selling it and recommending it to others.

Not having a plan.

The first step to making money with Amazon is to have a plan. You can’t just throw up some affiliate links and hope they make you rich, because they won’t. You need to know what your goal is before you start making decisions about how best to achieve it.

Why do I need a plan? We’ll get back into that later in this article, but for now let’s just say that having one will help keep everything organized and focused on achieving success as quickly as possible.

What does having an affiliate marketing plan look like? It could be anything from writing down ideas for new content or products (and why), setting financial goals like how much money per month or year from each source of revenue by when, and more importantly – how much time will each task take so as not waste any valuable resources!

Either promoting too much or not enough.

There are two major mistakes to avoid when promoting your product or service: being too promotional, and not being promotional enough.

The first mistake is easy to make–you want to get people excited about your product and make them buy it! But if you’re promoting a specific item with all of your efforts, then chances are that most of what you have written will be focused on explaining why it’s so great and why people should buy it. This can lead readers who don’t know much about the niche (or even worse, those who already know everything about it) away from making any purchases at all because they feel like they’ve already learned everything there is to know about what you’re selling.

On the other hand, if we don’t promote our products enough then no one will ever find out how great they are! This leads us back into having too much information about everything related directly related only instead of focusing on one specific aspect at once; which would ideally help guide someone through their decision making process more efficiently than having access too much data all at once could ever do alone.”

Promoting products that aren’t popular or don’t match your audience.

One of the most common mistakes beginners make is promoting products that don’t match their audience. It’s important to be selective when choosing a product for your affiliate link, and this means knowing who your target audience is and making sure the product you’re promoting matches their needs.

If you’re selling dog toys through Amazon, don’t promote cat food or baby clothes! If someone buys something they don’t need or want because they clicked on your affiliate link, they’ll end up being unhappy with both you and Amazon–and this could lead them never using either site again in future.
