Amazon aStores

I’ve been an Amazon affiliate for awhile but hadn’t actually been using it. When I migrated this blog over to WordPress last week, I went back to the affiliates site and build a few product links to show some of my favorite web/SEO/CSS books. That’s when I saw the Amazon aStores link and I had to check it out.

Wow – this is a really cool idea. You can create your own store using Amazon’s products (anything you want) and customize it to look the way you want, and then you get a referral fee based on the number or type of items purchased. I put about 30 books in my store and had the whole thing up and running on the blog within a half hour.

I don’t know if it might make any money for me, but it’s a great way for me to share all my favorite books in my web design library in any event. This is a really cool thing.

Have you other bloggers put an aStore on your site? Has it done anything for you if so?

  1. I’ve found the new features supplied by astores to be excellent for blog posts. The ability to use text links or product links complete with pictures and displaying amazon and marketplace prices great for blogging.
    The other new feature is you can link to any page in amazon and have this tracked, so if the visitor then goes on to make a purchase, you get commission!
    I even went to the trouble of creating a tutorial on how to get the most of your aStore for beginnners, and that should be accessible by clicking on my name/link, I hope you find it useful!
