How to Make More Money With Amazon Affiliate Links

Have you ever clicked on a link someone posted in their Instagram story? Have you noticed how it takes you to the internet browser of that shopping site, but it keeps you on the Instagram app? This is a pro for Instagram, BUT a con for you making money through your affiliate links. Don’t worry, I’ve got just the thing to help you increase your sales. Here’s how to make more money with Amazon affiliate links.

Have you ever heard of deep linking? Deep linking is basically an affiliate link that will take users directly to the app to purchase the product you are recommending (where you will get the affiliate credit) rather than just to the browser to buy the product. 

Deep linking is much more effective than a regular affiliate link because users are more likely to purchase the product when they are logged into their account on the app rather than not logged in on a browser. (You’d rather buy something on your Amazon app rather than on the browser, right? Same.)

To get those affiliate links to work in your favor, you need to use deep links. This will make it much easier for your customer to finish an order using your link rather than closing out the browser and finding the product on their own. So, how do you deep link your affiliate products? It’s actually really simple, if you’re using URL Genius.

How to Make More Money With Amazon Affiliate Links 

In order to get your Instagram followers to become your loyal buyers, you’ve got to get them off Instagram and onto another platform to buy your products. Whether it’s through your email list, website, or a link that will take them directly to their Amazon account to view your linked product, getting them to follow you onto another platform is key for growing your community and growing your business. For the third option I mentioned, this is where URL Genius comes in.

URL Genius is going to become your new best friend when it comes to linking products and sharing them on your Instagram content. It’s as simple as pasting your affiliate link on URL Genius and then it generates a new link that still has your affiliate code but will allow your users to leave Instagram and visit the direct app of where your product is linked. 

While URL Genius generates deep links for several different companies/apps, I recommend sticking with Amazon because your users will most likely already have this app downloaded. If your links are connected to other retailers that aren’t as common, the user will be prompted to download the app before they can buy your product. 

If you’re linking to products that are in other retailers such as Sephora, Kohls, Target, etc. your user may not have that app downloaded on their phone already. This is just an extra step for them, running the risk of not following through with their order. You want it to make it as easy as possible for your customer to purchase, so the fewer steps to do it, the better.

FAQs about URL Genius

 

Q #1: Is URL Genius free?

While URL Genius offers a free trial, it does charge you $0.2 per click to use the services. This seems totally worth it to me, but you can always decide for yourself! You’ll have a pretty good idea on whether or not it’s worth it to you after using the free trial. 

 

Q #2: What all is included with URL Genius?

URL Genius offers way more than just deep links. It also keeps track of your analytics for you, so you know which links are more popular than others. If you know me you know I love data, so this one is super exciting for me! When you have the data in front of you you are able to nail down a super solid strategy and change it as needed. 

URL Genius also allows you to customize its QR code to fit your branding and logo, rename and organize your links so you can keep track of them easily, and so much more. Check out a full list of the offerings HERE

 

Q #3: How does URL Genius correlate with LTK?

If you have been using LTK or another similar affiliate program for your links, you may be wondering if you can still use LTK or if you have to switch things over. As of this year (2023), LTK has made all of its Amazon links deep links, so you can still use LTK but just be aware if you are linking things to Amazon or another website.

Also, I will say the Amazon affiliate program offers better insights and analytics than the other affiliate programs. If this is important to you (which it should be), I’d strongly consider solely using Amazon to get those analytics and using URL Genius to get the deep links! Amazon may be updating their links in the future, but until then URL Genius is the way to go.
