Becoming an Amazon affiliate is quick and easy. Once you’re in, sharing your links is as simple as finding a product on Amazon, copying your affiliate link (text or image), and adding it to your post.
Because Amazon offers billions of products on their site, you have a gigantic selection to choose from. It takes only a few minutes to find the right item that fits with your topic and insert the affiliate link.
