Promoting the Amazon affiliate program is a great way to start making money online with your website or blog, thus drawing you nearer to your goal of achieving internet home business success. In this article we will review the strategies that you can adopt for giving greater exposure to your affiliate links. We will be using the content sharing website, Squidoo to promote your affiliate links.

First, in case you have never heard of Squidoo, it is a publishing platform as well as a community of webmasters who create “lenses” that are in a nutshell, informative articles about a particular topic. Squidoo has been around for more than five years now. It was conceptualized by Seth Godin. If you create your lens properly by using lots of keyword tags, and add compelling and informative content to your lenses, you can hit the first page of Google in a matter of days, not weeks. Creating a lens on Squidoo accomplishes a couple of things for you. You get more exposure for your Amazon affiliate links, and because Squidoo is so popular, you also get quality back links to your blog or website, thus helping to boost its rankings in the search engines. It is for this reason that it is important to embed links to your blog or website on your Squidoo lens.

First of all, you need to create an account on Squidoo. It is easy to create an account on Squidoo. Squidoo is free to use. Once you have verified your email address, you are a verified member of Squidoo, and you can then begin to create lenses. You should use keyword research to find the best keywords to use on your Squidoo lens. Create a big list of keywords. Then choose one of these keywords to use in the URL for the lens.

You can use several free and premium keyword research tools to create your list of keywords to promote on Squidoo. Remember to make sure that the keywords you promote on your Squidoo lens are relevant to the services you are promoting. Write quality content targeted to your primary keyword. Write thoughtful, informative content on your Squidoo lens. Provide insider tips, and news on the industry that you are writing about.

Next, add Amazon modules to your squidoo lens to promote your affiliate links on Amazon.
You have a lot of widget options to choose from. For our purposes we will focus on the Amazon module. But you can also add other modules that Squidoo recommends.

Upon adding the Amazon module to your Squidoo lens, you will find it empty of content. You will have to provide a title and description. You should also choose the number of products you want displayed on your Amazon module. You can add the products yourself also if that is what you need to do.
