Amazon Influencer Program offers an enormous opportunity for social media influencers to grow and shine with them. With a store as diverse as Amazon, influencers can choose any items they desire, create their very own storefront and promote it however they want to drive sales. Not to mention, earn money on qualifying purchases while doing it all.
What is the Amazon Influencer Program?
Officially rolled out in 2017, the Amazon Influencer Program is a more exclusive and feature-rich version of the company’s already established affiliate program. As an Amazon influencer, you will get a very high level of service and special attention from the company itself. You will receive a vanity URL to a free Amazon storefront where you can share products that appeal to your target audience the most. When customers shop your page, you will earn a commission for every qualifying purchase.
Why Did Amazon Create This Program?
With the rise of influencer marketing, Amazon came to realize that social media personalities with huge following could widen Amazon’s reach by promoting products outside the Amazon marketplace. Amazon also realized influencers were seeking more opportunities to monetize their fame by collaborating with reliable brands.
