Making Moulah


Did you guys know HOW EASY it is to become an Amazon Associate? If you put book covers up on your website, add your Amazon Associate ID and you can earn up to ten percent in referrral fees from people who click-through and buy a book after using your link, and you can get all kinds of interesting tracking stats. If you’re an author, it’s another way to use your website to earn money from promoting your books and to track interest in your books. It’s easy, easy, easy. Takes like ONE MINUTE to join! Then all you do is change the links on your website to your Associate ID.

Just another new toy. I love toys! And I mean…WHY NOT? You’re putting your book covers up anyway, right?

Click here to sign up! (I believe you can do this with B&N and possibly other online booksellers, but I use Amazon links on my site. If you use B&N or another bookseller, be sure to check out what their deal is because they probably have one!)

    I’d love to sign up, but I need a book cover first :waah: But it’s on my list for when I sell!

  2. Mary says:

    Excellent idea, Suzanne. I did it and it’s so easy.

  3. Charlene says:

    What a cool trick! I must become an Amazon Associate. πŸ’‘

  4. Vicki says:

    You don’t have to be a published writer to become an Amazon Associate, Margery. I’ve been one for a long time. I made money off some of Katie’s dead authors. πŸ˜€

  5. Cheyenne McCray says:

    Well that’s cool. Now if I just knew how to do anything with my website. LOL. Maybe my webmistress can do it–without charging me a fortune? πŸ˜‰

  6. kacey says:

    Great idea Suzanne. It is easy to do, too. Isn’t it?

  7. Nicole says:

    Ooh…hmmm….I doubt I have the traffic, but it might be fun to do that for the books I’m reading.

  8. Katie says:

    Hmmm, I always thought working in a bookstore would be fun…..

  9. Jill says:

    It’s weird because my post never showed up this morning. I can’t remember what I said either, LOL, but I’m sure it was brilliant.

  10. Larissa says:

    Can you get OTHER associate IDs to post on your site? I would love to do this when I get published, but I want the proceeds from anyone who clicks on my links to benefit the ASPCA, since they are an associate. Do you know? Hmm. Maybe I can just click through a link and get the number:idea:

  11. Michelle says:

    What a great idea! I’ll do this when I sell. πŸ™‚

  12. Trace says:

    I don’t know how to show a book cover on my site πŸ™

    I’ve tried but I keep screwing it up. What is the code that you use?

  13. Trace says:

    Oh never mind. I went to the site and I see it’s a special link they give you when you join, right?

  14. Suzanne says:

    Trace, you use a Blogspot blog, right? You’d have to ask someone who uses that format. There must be a way you can upload image files!

  15. Suzanne says:

    Yes, they’ll give you a special code when you sign up for Amazon Associates.
