Make Some Changes to Your Website
First up, is your website too commercially focused? Amazon wants its affiliates to offer value added information, not just be another conduit for sales. The search engines and your readers both agree with this philosophy.
Also, consider adding more content to your website and do it frequently. The best way to make sure this happens is to come up with an editorial calendar. You simply come up with a bunch of headlines that you are going to write about and schedule them into the future.
Another alternative is to outsource your content creation. I am a content strategist and can help you with that. Reach out to me if you want me to help with your content creation needs.
Reapply to Amazon
Once you have made changes to your website, reapply to Amazon's Affiliate program (they call it the associate program.) You will more than likely get approved.
Move onto Other Affiliate Programs
Amazon really isn't the only game in town. Although they sell just about every product available in the world, there are plenty of others that can be good substitutes. Here is a short list:
- Lowe's & Home Depot
Niche It Down
It can be really tough to compete if your market is too general. You will be competing with Amazon itself and maybe even the vendors listed above. If so, you may want to niche down your market. What this means is to narrow your focus. Instead of hockey, consider hockey sticks. If that is still too competitive than consider carbon hockey sticks, etc.
When you narrow the focus, you may be able to find vendors that specialize in that niche and apply to their affiliate programs. It's a heck of an easier market to sell to, anyway.
