Course Description

Looking to Make Money Online Passively?

You can in just one a week - using the Amazon Associates Program.

Imagine earning a commission on other people's purchases every single day. In 2015 alone, Amazon sold over 5 billion items and 40% of that was sold by 3rd-party sellers (i.e. affiliates, such as much myself.) Consumers are going to buying products regardless. Why not grab a piece of the pie yourself?

Setting up with the Amazon Affiliate Program is not the hard part. The challenging part is knowing which products to promote so that you have a fighting chance of ranking on the first page of Google.

You see, you need to make sure you rank on Google for highly profitable keywords that have relatively low competition. And don't worry if you are not following me - that's what the course is for! In our 6-hour+ training, we cover very important concepts such as:

Embedding Your Amazon Affiliate Code into Your Content

  • Now comes the fun part! After designing a website and content that we can be proud of, we walk you through the steps of signing up with the Amazon Associates Program. This will ensure that you are be paid every time a sale occurs as a result of your previous hard work.

Spreading the News While You Wait for Google to Rank Your Website
