Advice from a Successful Affiliate

Rachel Meaders is a successful commission-earning Influencer, who says the Amazon Influencer Program has changed her and her family’s life for the better. Thanks to the commissions earned, Rachel and her husband have started their own businesses and work entirely for themselves.

Rachel’s advice for aspiring creators on Amazon is to ‘just go BIG’. She adds: “Build your storefront out with idea lists for every category from the start. Remember to be posting images to your storefront as well, because your followers want to see what things look like on your table, or in your bathroom. It brings genuine energy to your content because your audience can see that you actually have the item and that it looks great in your home as well.”

Everything Creators Need in One Place

The Creator University provides information on how to share everything with your audience, as well as how to find the links you need to create content. There are also many successful Amazon Influencers who you can draw inspiration from.
