Take note of Facebook’s recommended video specs before uploading to ensure the highest quality viewer experience. A varying format could result in poor playback or black bars if your aspect ratio is off.
Really tough to say because the quality of your traffic matters. If you had a product review website the conversion should be higher. If it’s a general website and you just happen to have some Amazon links thrown up – well that’s going to get lower conversions.

Ask around. In my experience, if you establish a good relationship with other bloggers (and especially if you are giving more than you are taking in that relationship), over time, most are more than willing to share tips and hints about what has and has not worked for them.
Chris. Love this article as I’ve used amazon and been amazed myself at the potential. One thing With the latest google panda update they have targeted affiliate links and thin content…has this affected your sites at all? I really want to starta few sites based off amazon but am a little hesitant since I’m not sure what google will think 🙂
I think it really depends on what type of site you’re trying to build. For me, I don’t recommend all that much stuff on Amazon, and the payouts are low that it doesnt make a whole lot of sense to spend 8 hours on a 3,000 word tutorial blog post to try and sell a $10 book and make $.40 on it.

Premium Video Ads are bought and measured in a way that’s similar to how advertisers already buy and measure ads on TV. The ads are bought based on Targeted Gross Rating Points to reach a specific audience over a short period of time. Delivery is measured by an independent third party, Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings (OCR), and advertisers only pay based on what Nielsen OCR measures.
I personally knew about affiliate marketing but I was never properly informed on how to use it and what it really is. I only heard it casually bought up by youtubers. Wow. Im making another youtube account to start my channel soon and i am watching so many of ur videos cos i do need some extra money and i have (or rather, had) no idea what i was doing.

A common way to separate webinar content from product content is using the webinar to explain what you need to do to achieve a certain goal, and leaving the product to dive into (or facilitate) the how.

Perhaps you’ve seen this before. You’re in a “learn online marketing” type forum. A person publishes a post complaining that they can’t make a dime online. But in their signature line they have something along the lines of “I Made 50 Million Dollars with This” followed by their affiliate link.
