Would You Like to Make Money with Amazon?
If you are interested in making money online, it is always a good idea to have more than one income revenue stream. One area where I am trying to build up my online income is with my niche sites.
I used to have over 70 sites at one time and that was pretty crazy. Now I have reduced that down to just four. 2 are seasonal, 1 is for toys and one is for random items that I like the look of.
Should You Try & Make Money with Amazon?
I would say that if you have the $5 -10 to spend on a domain name and you are willing to add a few articles to a blog, then you should definitely give it a go. I am of the mindset that as long as I can cover the cost of the domain and hosting, then I am not losing out. I already have hosting for this and my PLR website so I don’t count that. (It is about $5-6 a month).
If you prefer not to write your own articles, you can purchase PLR articles for as little as $1 per page – Articles already written and ready for use. Tweak them a little so they read as if you wrote them, add product links and publish your posts.

I have purchased PLR articles from other writers and have quite a bit sitting on my hard drive from various sales and special offers, as well as my own from my own store. Now I can use them and make a little affiliate commission.
The 30 Day Post Blogging Challenge that I am currently doing is helping me to get organised so that I add more content to my blogs this month.
The Main Reason I Like Making Money with Amazon
It is fairly easy and straight forward to do. I am not looking to create authority sites so I am not investing too much time. I add content, share the links, set and forget.
My Earnings Since This Time Last Year
Here is a breakdown of what I earned from my niche sites. I think my Halloween site has the least amount of posts.
My Halloween site – $124.48
My Toy site – $46.28
My Random site – $123.55
The rest of my Amazon earnings came from
Direct Links in Squidoo articles – $599.17
Direct Links in Hubpages articles – $152.26
Grand Total – $1,045.74
It would be nice to see how much I can make with my own sites, now that Squidoo has shut down and Hubpages are no longer earning much for me. My sites won’t make me rich but that’s OK. I like knowing that I am earning a little bit from different sources doing something that isn’t so hard and that I enjoy.
Need Help Creating an Amazon Niche Blog?
There are plenty of step by step tutorials available that will explain how to choose a domain name, what plugins to use, how to write product articles, how to get Amazon links and what you should include in your blog.
One such example is Casual Holiday Blogging – Cash in On the Holidays by Britt Malka.
I had purchased her previous Squidoo tutorial, which helped me make money before Squidoo changed all their rules so I was happy to invest in this tutorial. She released this last year, which is when I bought it – price – $9.95.
This is an evergreen tutorial so you can apply everything she teaches to build up a niche blog for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s day – any special occasion where people spend money.
If you want to get an Amazon site up and running then this would serve you well.
Time to Get Back To Work
I just did a quick check of my Amazon stats. Over the last 18 days I have made 14 sales through my Halloween and Toy site links. This is around $200 in sales. My commission so far is $13.44. Just wait until people really start buying for Halloween and Christmas!
I will share those earnings in future Income Reports so be sure to subscribe to the blog – Just enter your email address below 🙂
