4. Create reviews for your chosen products

What is the best way to promote Amazon products? Obviously, by writing product reviews. This is the most effective way to generate good conversion rate for your promotion. However, not all reviews are created equal. There are lazy marketers that don’t want to write more than 400 words review for their Amazon products. While this may sometimes generate good conversion, most of the time it will only disappoint you. If you want to write good Amazon product reviews, you have to make sure to write detailed review, complete with product images, for each product that you review.

5. Give comparison if necessary

The last thing is to give comparison for similar products. This is important to educate your audience about the product that you promote. The goal is to make them convinced that your product recommendation is the best choice for them. Comparison review is not necessary, but if you write comparison review along with regular review, it will significantly boost your conversion rate.
