Selling Amazon products on a WordPress platform has never been easier for bloggers than with the introduction of EasyAzon, Chris Guthrie’s new plugin.
I’m always on the lookout for new ways to diversify my income streams – I absolutely hate relying on a single income stream for my business. Are you heavy into Adsense? Google is infamous for banning accounts just because some 1 or 0 doesn’t line up in their algorithm. Heavy into a particular affiliate offer? Depending on the network, I’ve seen campaigns get swiped, robbed or simple cut off at a moment’s notice. It’s happened to me before, and I’m not the only one.
So diversification is really the name of the game in internet marketing.
Selling Amazon products offers a couple ways to diversify your income. For starters, you’re adding a new affiliate account, and it is always nice to get checks from an additional source.
However, just as importantly, the sheer breadth of products that are available on Amazon allows you to easily diversify the markets that you’re active in as well. Some of the niches I’m in are seasonal, so it is great to have the ability to develop websites that counter each other from that perspective. For instance, if you’re selling umbrellas and sunscreen, you’re going to hedge yourself against an extra rainy season, or an extra sunny season.
I use WordPress for every single site that I build these days, and EasyAzon makes adding Amazon products into your posts a snap. You can read my full EasyAzon review here.
In brief, some of my favorite aspects of EasyAzon are:
- No html coding required
- Easy access to Amazon products from your post edit screen
- Very straightforward to use
- No real footprints are left on your site
If you’ve got any WordPress sites that are currently promoting Amazon products, I’d highly recommend checking out EasyAzon.
