Amazon.com is America's largest online retailer as of January 2010. Founded in 1994, very early on they capitalized on the online shopping phenomenon that was taking place and leveraged with the power of the internet.
Online shopping is become so convenient and commonplace with easy access to comparison shopping, for example. Most people are living hectic lives and are trying to save time. The trend in online shopping is increasing and shows no signs of stopping.
This trend has opened up a huge opportunity for sellers online. With the rise in blogging and consumers looking for reviews on products before they buy, Amazon has come up with a way to leverage from this which gave birth to the AMAZON ASSOCIATE PROGRAM.
If you're into blogging and not yet an Amazon Associate, you are losing out on a great potential to monetize your blog. The blogger platform has made things even simpler by incorporating an Amazon module to easily add product links, banners and pictures directly while writing your blog post.
