How to Write Content for an Affiliate Site (Amazon Affiliate Authority Sites)

NEED CONTENT for an Amazon Affiliate website? That’s exactly what I want to talk about today.

My name is Doug Cunnington and I’m the founder of Niche Site Project where I talk about Internet marketing, amazon affiliate sites, and project management.

So, back in 2013 I started my niche site after I came across the Smart Passive Income blog and podcast by Pat Flynn.

I got super inspired, and signed up for bluehost and created my site.

Now when I first started thinking about content, I knew I had a couple keywords that I wanted to throw in there. But I was thinking – how am I gonna do this?!

I didn’t understand the niche, or the topic. I had no idea how to get started.

So let’s go ahead and get into HOW to write content.

First of all, if you are trying to ‘copy’ any text – it’s probably not a good idea.

Another common question I get is about ‘content spinners’, where you take content that already exists and put a different spin on it. However – this is not something I recommend, any shortcuts you try to take are usually not a good idea.

When I first sat down I had a little bit of a difficult time…

I tend to have a perfectionist attitude, which is great except when you are writing content.

And because I kept going back and forth with the content – it took me about 8 HOURS to write a simple piece of content.

Not efficient at all.

Fast forward 3 YEARS – I started to implement the RPM method:

Another great method is the FAQ Method:


Another tip. At some point you WILL write a product review – it’s just something that comes with the territory.

One of my biggest tips is to write other reviews, check out forums, Facebook groups, Quora, Instagram, etc.

Lastly, my BIGGEST tip is go out and find the necessary information on your niche.

Research the products, and find the information to put into your content to curate and put them together.

  1. Thanks for the valuable video.

    I prefer to focus on other aspects of the blog, so I just hired a writer from thetic solutions & had him handle all the writing + seo aspects for my blog & since they're doing a good job so far I can work on other projects

  2. You were only beating about the push. Don't tell us too much stories next time. Just tell us how to write, as the title to the video has suggested.

    Thank you.

  3. Does it matter if I am choosing pages or post in wordpress to publish the content? Some says pages rank faster than post for amazon affiliate sites.
    If thats true than its bad news for me as I have already published 4 posts.

  4. This is a great video tutorial Doug. What about content for a business website such as photography services for instance. How would you approach content creation? Thank you

  5. Fabulous Doug, I have just started my first amazon affiliate site, and the thing I do for every product is to see the features from Amazon and write it in my own words, and then I read comments and based on the comments I write my personal opinion. Like every product, I talk about has approx 500 words, is it good? Or too long?

  6. This is glorious, I have been researching "how to be an affiliate marketer without a website" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Neyameron Xiydeline Method – (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my partner got excellent results with it.

  7. So for example, write a product review on your Amazon affiliate site and then go on Quora and write another review and link to your blog? Do you have good luck with this? I wrote a best answer with 20k veiws and a handful of upvotes – even got invited to the partner program, yet one day I go on Quora and the moderator deleted my answer after a year and a half and then they tell me it's irrelevant to self promote even though my site is the closest thing related to the question and on the internet for that matter. Funny thing is I see people doing this every day all day long and they they seem to get away with it.

  8. excellent advice, Doug! Powerful, concise, and straight to the point! For amazon reviews I use this method and I am surprisingly being able to create long in depth content (over 2000 words) for a single product. It's amazing.I leave no stone unturned when it comes to sources of information.
