Hi there, welcome back to my website. In this post, I am going to tell you how and why I choose the products to promote in Amazon.
For me, I like to promote products that are under the Home & Kitchen section in Amazon. The reason for this is because every household definitely buy things under this section such as vacuum cleaners, washing machine, coffee makers etc…
You can of course select the categories that you would like to promote products from if the category fits into the criteria that I myself is using for all my Amazon sites. So now, let me tell you how I select the products to promote.
Firstly, the product categories that I have chosen need to have expensive items preferably more than $100. This is because the commission that you make from Amazon is 4-8% and you need to have expensive items to increase your earnings. Examples of such categories are vacuum cleaner, refrigerators, coffee machines and much more.
Next, the product that you choose got to be “complicated”. What I mean by this is that there should be different type of functions, models, brands for the products so that people will start to search online for reviews. When people start to search for “Product Name” + “Reviews” keyword and found your website, the traffic will be targeted and conversion will be much higher. The above examples that I have stated are good examples.
The other thing to look out for is the number of reviews for that product categories. If the product types fit the above 2 criteria but not this, you should not carry on to promote products in that niche. The reason being that if there are only a few reviews on average in that niche, it means that there are less people buying products for that category.
The next thing to look out for is the average rating. A lot of people mentioned that the average rating should be around 4 stars and above but for me it is different. If I choose the products in a particular niche (e.g. sewing machines) to promote, I do not really care about the rating of that product. If the average rating of a particular product is poor, I will still write review for that product and in that review I will state the truth about the poor rating and recommend another product (in the same niche) to my readers at the end of the review.
These are the essential criteria that you should follow when choosing products to promote in Amazon to ensure that you can make money from the products’ category. In my coming posts, I am going to show you everything of how I setup my profitable Amazon review sites. Stay tuned!
