  1. Hey Ivan,

    Thank you SO much for providing this AMAZING training!

    When applying for the Amazon Affiliate Program, do you recommend having a site that is already ready with reviews on there? Or will just something small do – for example, just a few blog posts.

    Thanks so much
    Mr D

    • Hey Mr D, you’re welcome! Glad you like it.

      You can apply for the Amazon affiliate program right after you set up your site in Lessons 3 & 4. You don’t need to have any content on it to apply. Keep in mind that Amazon has a 180 trial. You have to make 3 qualifying affiliate sales, not coming from your friends or family (they have some way of knowing this), in 180 days. This is more than possible with my training so no worries! The key is the last lesson 🙂

  2. Hi Ivan,
    I’m a bit confused, so i live in Japan but i want my account to have visitors from the west coast. So i made my amazon affiliate account in amazon.com website. Do i need to make another affiliate account on amazon.co.jp? because amazon.com is in United States and amazon.co.jp is the Japanese website. do i need 2 accounts? and if i will have two accounts ,it means that i will have 2 affiliate link right? i need help .I’m worried about the payment method. hoping for a reply, thank you

    • Hye Yuria,

      If your site is going to be in English then MOST of your visitors and customers will come from the US. In this case, you can join the Amazon.com program to send them to the US site. Amazon will pay you your commissions no matter where you live.

      If you will have lots of visitors from Japan, and for this, you need to write your content in Japanese, and you want them to go to Amazon Japan, then create an account on your local Amazon site to get paid once they buy using your links.

      There is a third solution. It’s called One Click universal Amazon affiliate link. Read the first two answers in this thread on Quora to learn how to apply the One-Click solution.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Ivan

  3. Hi Ivan, thanks for the training videos!

    I have a question:

    If someone clicks my Amazon affiliate link, (goes to Amazon) then closes out of Amazon, and then within 24 hours goes back to Amazon without using my link (just going directly to the Amazon site), will I still get commissions for any products they buy?

    Thank you for any feedback you can offer.

    • Hey Ryan, you’re welcome! 🙂

      Yes, you will get commissions in that case scenario. The Amazon Affiliate cookie lasts for 24 hours after a website visitor clicks on the affiliate link. The cookie stays in their browser for that entire length of time. That way, if they check out at any time in those 24 hours, the purchase will be credited to you.

      Cheers,
      Ivan

    • Hey Clare, sure, you can join as many affiliate programs as you want. I picked Amazon for this training because it is easy to get accepted, and they have a ton of products and a ton of niches so it helps to save time searching for both. However, you can add more affiliate programs to your site using the same principles.

  4. Hello Ivan, just wanted to say thank you for opening a new door for me in the digital world. Before opening my site I wanted to make sure I can register as an affiliate. I’ve found online training courses on Udemy, but to register on Udemy as an affiliate requires at least 1000 followers on my webpage and the same story with other webpages that provide online training or other material stuff. Can you give me some advice? Which direction should I take after that?

    • Hey Irakli, you’re welcome. Some affiliate programs or networks will require a website that has generated at least 1000 clicks to accept you in their program. You can proceed with the training, build your site, and start generating clicks using the instructions from this program and once you have those 1000 clicks, which is not a hard thing to accomplish, you can reply to their affiliate program and simply grab your affiliate links.

  5. Hey Ivan, how many affiliate programs should I join? In other training that I was attending before, a guy said that we should promote one product, which means joining only one affiliate program right? Now you say to join as many as possible. I’m a bit confused. Can you shed some light here, please?

    • Hey Jerry. That’s really up to you. I recommend joining more than one affiliate program or network and finding as many good products as you can. Then, use the instructions from the next lessons in this training to create product roundups and product review posts. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.
