I like Animoto! It is a powerful to simplify the video making process. However, there are not many pictures built in so most of the time we need to supply pictures to make a rather compelling video. Anyway, video marketing is something that I will need to focus on apart from SEO
My biggest frustration is how to drive my target to my site and links. I have to do YouTube videos as part of what I told the publisher I would do. I have cards in my YouTube videos to try to steer the traffic to my site where they can look at the offerings in a very organized fashion (which really is one of two places on the web that provide this for this publisher). I just want to work smarter instead of harder. I have had so many people thank me for the videos but it is not converting through the affiliate links. I can’t stop the YouTube videos because it is part of the agreement. Also posting the reviews on Amazon.com in the product reviews. I don’t think I can add a link to my site in product reviews.

Depends on if they look at the entire URL string or if you tell them. Frankly I think as long as you’re providing value for reader and as long as you put the Amazon disclosure in your blog post then that is good.

So here, your friend doesn’t need to purchase your product first. The same things happend while you are selling online using affiliate marketing technique.

Almost any website could be recruited as an affiliate publisher, but high traffic websites are more likely interested in (for their sake) low-risk cost per mille or medium-risk cost per click deals rather than higher-risk cost per action or revenue share deals.
