Getting More Blogging Visibility
Amazon is a tremendous platform and website that has many tools for bloggers to use and to promote on their site. Among a lot of these different factions is the “Mechanical Turk”,”Amazon Wish List”, and, of course “Kindle”. Now those are just a few of the things that you can do with Amazon to make a lot of money with!
Now, to be successful at a lot of these different tools that Amazon offers, you have to have a couple of different things in line to get noticed by the wide world web. Some of those things include, but are not limited to, doing great search engine optimization through backlinks, you can see my post on SEO Tutorial For Beginning Bloggers, another thing that you have to focus on is getting your posts up to par. I wrote a post called The Perfect Post, this should help you get an idea of what you need to be doing as far as content is concerned.
The sad fact about making money with Amazon Affiliates is that you have to have steady traffic coming in, targeted traffic that are wanting what you have too! This is how you are going to make money, not with just Amazon, but with any affiliate that you participate with.
Getting this steady traffic is the hard part for the beginning blogger. And face it, SEO takes time. The only other real option is to get the traffic from social media sites. You can get my free ebook called Boost Your Social Media Traffic Overnight to get a steady flow coming in quickly.
However, you really need to get the organic searches going to be really successful promoting affiliates. But there is one other option that can give you blog visibility and traffic, and it doesn’t have to be optimized!
Becoming A Published Blogger On Kindle
You can become a published blogger on Kindle! You can drive traffic to your blog with the help of this giant platform! Millions of people get on this site everyday and subscribe/download thousands of blogs to read. All you have to do to get published is submit your blog. You can read my blog on your Kindle here.
Here is a step by step process of how it’s done:
Step #1-Go to Kindle Publishing and create an account. Now it’s important to remember that this will be a different sign in and password if you are already an affiliate of Amazon.
Step #2- Once you create an account and sign in you will see an “Add Blog” at the top right of the screen. Click “Add Blog”.
Step #3- Add your Information. It’s important to know your blog’s RSS Feed. If you run a WordPress blog, the feed is usually “/feed” at the end of the URL.
Also remember that the “BlogTitle” needs to be exactly the same as what you have specified in your blog. This is used for the readers interest when subscribing. Make sure you fill out all the necessary things and give great detail in the description too!
Blogger Recognition & Kindle
This is something a new blogger should definitely do. It’s free and easy to do and it can get you instant recognition! I was reading earlier where a lady had a blog that got around 300-500 visits per month. She posted her blog in the Kindle Publishing and it was an instant success! She now enjoys over 300,000 readers per month and a nice healthy check from Amazon!
Oh yeah, that reminds me! When you do this, Amazon gives you an affiliate ID, and it is usually $.99 for the Kindle reader to subscribe to your blog. You get a portion of this money too! So, blogging is something that you are doing anyway, why not put it on Kindle and have a chance to get noticed? You never know, you could be the next big thing!
