Amazon Influencer Program COMPLETE Tutorial (Get Approved AND Scale) - YouTube Section 1: Introduction and Program Results The speaker has been using the Amazon Influencer Program for eight months and has been earning consistently. They are averaging about $10,000 a month from the program. This video will provide everything you need to get approved, earn your first $1,000, and scale your earnings. There are 50 testimonials on the screen from people who have successfully used the program. The speaker promises to share all their knowledge and has a special gem to share at the end of the video. Section 2: Getting Approved Getting approved is not about follower count, but about engagement. The program currently approves influencers on YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram. If you're starting fresh, it's recommended to use TikTok as it's easier to get engagement quickly. Focus on creating content that encourages engagement, such as asking viewers to finish a song or quote. You only need five engaged subscribers on TikTok to get approved. Section 3: Examples of Engaging Content Examples of engaging content include accounts that ask viewers to finish a song or quote. These accounts may not have viral content, but they receive a lot of engagement. Creating content that allows viewers to participate and show their knowledge is key. Make sure the engagement challenge is broad enough for many people to participate. Create a new TikTok account and post about five to ten times before applying for approval. Amazon Influencer Program COMPLETE Tutorial (Get Approved AND Scale) - YouTube Section 4: Approval Process and On-Site Placement You can apply for approval every day until you meet the engagement threshold. There are two separate approvals: one to upload videos and one for on-site placement (earning money). After getting approved to upload videos, you need to upload at least three videos for review. Upload more than three videos if you want Amazon to review more of your content. Once approved, you can start earning money from on-site commissions. Video Requirements Upload only three videos to avoid mistakes and problems. Show your face in the videos to link it to your influencer account. Follow the rules provided by Amazon for the videos. Review the rules before uploading the videos. Focus on demoing the product in the videos. Approval Process and Setup Videos can be published before being approved for on-site commissions. Upload three videos and wait for approval. Approval can take anywhere from one to eight weeks. Read and understand the rules before attempting approval. Use a smartphone for filming and consider using additional equipment for better audio quality. Importance of Quality and Approval Limit You only have three tries to get approved. Take time to make high-quality videos that meet the rules. Read and understand all the rules provided by Amazon. Invest in equipment to improve the quality of your videos. Focus on audio quality as it is important to Amazon. Content Outline and Answering Customer Questions Answer common customer questions in your videos. Check the product page for frequently asked questions. Answer the top questions with the most upvotes. Showcase the features and sizes of the product in your videos. Address the bullet points in the product description provided by the seller. How to Make Your First Thousand Dollars Walk around your kitchen and identify kitchen items that are sold on Amazon. These items have a higher commission percentage and can generate more earnings. Even if you didn't purchase the items on Amazon, as long as they are sold on the platform, you can review them. You can also review items that your friends or family have purchased. When uploading a product, you can choose from your orders or browse Amazon for the product. Creating Thumbnails and Titles Thumbnails can be simple or more elaborate, but they should showcase the product and grab attention. Consider using perspective, good lighting, and arrows to highlight specific features of the product. Thumbnails are not necessary, but they can improve click-through rates. Titles should include information about how long you have owned the product or your thoughts after using it for a certain period of time. If there are popular questions about the product, you can include them in the title to attract viewers. Scaling Your Earnings To scale your earnings, consider purchasing products to review. Pick a category on Amazon, such as Home and Garden or Toys, Kids, and Baby. Within the chosen category, select a subcategory, such as strollers and accessories. Create a spreadsheet to keep track of different categories and identify opportunities for making money. By buying a variety of products, you can increase your earnings and generate more content. Opportunities in Categories Discovering opportunities in different categories on Amazon. Using the example of ellipticals as a category to explore. Adding potential products to a spreadsheet for further analysis. Understanding the importance of scaling and the potential risks involved. Looking for products with less than six influencer videos for better visibility. Criteria for Product Selection Choosing products that have at least one influencer video already. Avoiding products with more than six influencer videos. Targeting products with a price over $100 for higher commissions. Considering products with over 500 reviews to indicate sales. Checking the total reviews over the last 10 days to determine velocity. Importance of Videos and Brand Decisions Understanding the limited number of videos that can be displayed on a product page. Realizing that the brand decides whether to have influencer videos on their page. Exploring the risk of not showing up on a product page due to brand decisions. Seeking products with influencer videos but not from the brand. Using a spreadsheet to analyze and identify potential opportunities. Exploring Opportunities and Examples Identifying specific products with potential based on criteria and analysis. Examining the example of a product with six videos and the potential for sales. Highlighting the vast number of categories available on Amazon. Showing the variety of opportunities in different categories. Emphasizing the importance of thorough research and analysis. Section 1: Caveats of the Amazon Influencer Program Do not start buying and returning products to Amazon as a way to make money, as Amazon will catch on and shut down your accounts. Returning products to Walmart after making a video is a gray area ethically, but it is not recommended to do the same with Amazon. Section 2: Seasonal Items and Scaling Earnings Seasonal items perform well on the Amazon Influencer Program, especially during holidays and changes in seasons. By focusing on seasonal items, you can make a significant amount of money in a short period of time. Examples of seasonal items include wreaths for Christmas, heaters during cold winters, and hot tubs at the beginning of December. Buying the right product at the right time allows you to make your money back quickly. Section 3: Scaling Method - Receiving Free Products After uploading 50 to 100 videos, programs will start reaching out to offer you free products to make videos about. Disclose in your videos that you received the product for free. Be selective in accepting free products, as some may not be worth your time or difficult to sell. If you don't want or can't sell a product, you can charge money for making a video about it. Charging money for videos is a way to value your time and avoid accumulating unwanted items. Section 4: Making Multiple Videos and Deleting Videos You can have multiple videos on a single product page, allowing you to take different angles such as reviews, demos, or comparisons. Having multiple videos increases your chances of ranking higher and earning more commissions. In your Amazon dashboard, you can delete videos if they are not performing well or if you no longer want them on your page. Summary If a video is not getting views, you can delete it and upload a different one to see if it performs better. Amazon cares about the recency of the video, so deleting and re-uploading the same video can help boost its visibility. If a video starts to lose traction, unless it's a seasonal item, you can make a new one-minute video about the product or delete and re-upload the existing video. Keep an eye on your videos and make necessary adjustments to maintain visibility and earnings. Joining a mastermind group can provide valuable insights and knowledge about the Amazon influencer program.
