How do you make money with Amazon?

One of our mylotters have written a title names "How Amazon make money" so I would like to ask the opposite which is "How Can We Make Money using Amazon?" Amazon is a very popular site for selling things so there should be a lot of possible ways to earn from this site. Does anyone know anything about making money using Amazon?

I have sold items through Amazon's Marketplace. I've also done a lot of tasks through Amazon's Mechanical Turk site. I like selling on the Amazon Marketplace because I can list my items, set my price, and just wait until they sell. It's been a lot more convenient for me than having to list and relist items on eBay would have been this semester. I'm looking forward to getting my last couple of textbooks up on there once I take my finals this week. Another option would be to join Amazon's affiliate program. I think you need your own website or blog to do it, but you can earn a percentage of every sale you bring to Amazon with your links.

Concerning more about Amazon Mechanical Turk, is it like an affiliate wherein you get some benefit when you get referrals from it? I would really like to know more about it, and if someone can send me a personal message about it I would be glad about it :) I am interested in what you mentioned here about Amazon's affiliate program. I actually joined a paid site before that helps teach about affiliate marketing with Amazon but haven't yet given time to start it. The name of that site is Dan Brock's Lazy Affiliate and they have some good feedbacks from members, so it's a shame I haven't started it yet...but I will start giving time to it very soon as I fix my schedules. Yes, for me this part of earning in Amazon attracts me more because I felt this may give the most earning potential than others. Those who has other ideas, maybe you can correct me with my statements if you find other better ways of earning in Amazon.

No, it doesn't work like an affiliate program at all. It's really similar to Mylot's tasks section. There are lots of little jobs you can do, like moderating photos or categorizing products for online stores. The amount you're paid for each job depends on what you do but you only earn from the things you do. I've never heard of the Lazy Affiliate thing. I see a lot of people using Amazon affiliate links but I'm afraid affiliate marketing just isn't my cup of tea.

In becoming an Amazon associate, does it mean you can pick which Amazon products you want to promote and get the link that leads to it, and every time someone buys something through your link you get paid commissions from all of them, is this correct? And if this is true, how much commission rate do they give their affiliates? And also if it is possible stine, can you share your experience with it and probably how effective being an Amazon affiliate is in giving you extra income? Any kind of feedback would be much appreciated :)

If you have a copy of something they sell, I think you can sell it to them. Then there's the obvious: their affiliate program, operated by both/either 'building' an "Astore" there (filling it with the products you would recommend & then directing fellow `Netizens to its pages) and/or building links between your webspace & their individual products. (Their affiliates-site shows you how to do all that.)

This discussion will be helpful. I think when someone desice to earn from Amazone, it wou would be better to make a plan and follow steps. The most important thing to know about amazone is to think how to write articles within the site that that let you add your product links of Amazon such as (hubpages).
