This lesson is pretty straight-forward. Using the Amazon OneLink, I’ll teach you how to take advantage of the clicks from your site visitors from different countries.
To start with, use your Google Analytics account.
In the left side, go to Geo>Location and see the top three countries your visitors are originating from.
From the above screenshot, I’d know that I need an Amazon US, Canada and UK associates account. Apply for free here.
It is always good to know if you have visitors coming from the countries in the first place. Otherwise, you can skip this lesson first, carry on creating contents until there is a good amount of visitors coming from different countries.
If you see visitors coming from Japan, get a Japan Associates Account. Apply the same move as you see visits from other countries such as France, Spain, Italy, and all other countries that Amazon Associates program will include to their list in the future.
How Does It Work?
If your visitor is from the Canada or UK for example, and you only have an Amazon US affiliate account, you might lose a commission should that visitor end up buying stuff from Amazon Canada or Amazon UK.
If you have an Amazon Canada or UK associates accounts, you can have access to your affiliate links for the mentioned countries.
How To Setup The Amazon One Link
1. Login To Your Amazon Associates Account.
2. Go To Tools>OneLink
3. Step1 > Click on “Click here to link” link.
4. Select Geography > Input Store ID (Tracking ID) > Link Store
You will have to verify your Store before proceeding to the next step. Also, if you do not have an Amazon Associates account of the country that you want to link, apply first to get your tracking ID.
Get The Code And Integrate It To Your Website
Click on “Get The Code Here”
Highlight the code and copy it.
Login to your WordPress account.
Install the Plugin called “Insert Headers And Footers.” After installing, click on “Activate.”
Go to Settings>Insert Headers And Footers.
Paste the code to the 2nd box. Click on “Save.”
If you are using a Genesis framework, then you don’t need a plugin as you can paste the code directly to the “Theme Settings.”
That’s it! You can start earning commissions from visitors coming from the linked countries. 🙂
