If you’re looking for some Amazon affiliate website examples, I’ve found a few so you can get a better idea of what they may look like and how they work.
From extremely narrow micro niches to huge authority blogs, I will go through a few examples and explain in a bit further detail.
Just keep in mind as you go through these examples – no matter how different they are, they all have one thing in common – they’re all focused on a niche. (a segment of a market)
Looking to build out your own Amazon affiliate website? Get started here with some great training!
This site is an interesting one and an example of a micro-niche that targets something extremely specific – football snack helmets. It’s under the domain “footballsnackhelmets.com” and that’s pretty much all it is – talking about football snack helmets!
This website doesn’t have much content, but it ranks #1 for “football snack helmets” so most people looking for those probably see this website.
This website seems to get a lot of traffic for snack helmet related search terms.
This is sort of one of those unusual cases where if you find something VERY specific that is extremely niche, and doesn’t have much competition – you might be able to luck out and create an affiliate website around it that actually ranks, gets traffic, and earns money (without lots of content and authority!)
MOST of the time, you’ll need to develop out more content on your site for ranking purposes. However, I think this is a good example because it shows that there is true potential to earn money within any niche.
This affiliate site has a pretty narrow niche focus as well, although not quite as much as the previous example with the snack helmets.
This site is an Amazon review site that reviews Xbox racing game accessories. It’s not huge or super authoritative but I think it provides a good example of the type of site you could build out within any amazon niche.
This website is an authority website within the cat niche. It’s not just talking about a certain type of product for cats or a certain breed – it seems to cover a wide scope of cat-related products and problems.
It’s also not what you may think of as a classic “Amazon review site”, it’s grown into an authority blog. You can see all the places it has been featured above, and it gets LOTS of traffic.
This site has a lot of articles that aren’t simply product reviews – it’s a large resource for cat help and advice. But it also does include a lot of product reviews/”best of” lists that link to products on Amazon.
However, if you’re looking to build a substantial business online as an Amazon affiliate, you should consider becoming an authority within the niche and not just a thin affiliate site (like the snack helmet example).
Tropical fish care guides is all about what the name implies. Categories include lighting, filters, aquarium plants, tanks, fish care guides, and many other informative articles on starting up a tropical fish tank and caring for the fish.
This website gets a lot of traffic, and monetizes with the Amazon affiliate program!
This site is in the baby niche and reviews baby products – everything from baby swings to car seats, they review it at mommyhood101. It’s been around since 2009 and has a lot of authority within the baby product niche.
For a beginner, trying to review every type of baby product would be a really large project to tackle. If you’re first starting out with an Amazon affiliate website you might want to consider starting a bit smaller.
A website reviewing JUST one of these topics – car seats, cribs, infant feeding, calming fussy babies, etc.. those are all NICHES in and of themselves and you could certainly create an entire website within any of them.
Tech Hive is an extremely large authority review site within the technology niche. They review everything from smart home devices to headphones and everything in between.
Again, an extremely large undertaking for a newbie and even starting out in just ONE of these areas of tech would be a better idea.
A large authority site could be your ultimate goal when starting out as an Amazon affiliate, but don’t be scared to start out small.
Let these serve as examples, but you can do ANYTHING you want! There are so many niche ideas with Amazon
Currently, the Amazon platform sells over 12 MILLION products. There’s definitely a lot of potential for partnering and selling some of these on any site you create!
Hopefully these examples can help a bit clear up some confusion with how a website that monetizes with the Amazon associates program may look and operate.
Clearly, they are all pretty different, so there’s not just one way to go about it. From super micro-niche to giant authority, there’s lots of opportunities as an Amazon affiliate.
