Why Athletes Should Do More With Amazon

How Athletes Can Use Amazon To Create Another Stream Of Income

Amazon has made millionaires out of countless individuals. Not talking about the stock holders and early investors but the savvy individuals that have built incomes through Amazon Affiliate Marketing.

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning commission by promoting other people’s or company’s products. You find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you made. Amazon even gives a small commission for bringing people to the platform if they buy a product as a direct result within your affiliate link within a certain timeframe.

Affiliate marketing is an amazing way to make money while you sleep with minimal effort. This is a great alternative for professional athletes to create another source of revenue using their platform.

Professional athletes are use to promoting products but in a different way. Endorsements from apparel companies such as Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour are examples of sponsored marketing. Professional athletes usually get paid a flat fee with incentives to market that particular brand for a set amount of time. In unique situations, some professional athletes will offer referral codes for certain companies where they get paid for every sale as well which works similar to affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing gives you free reign to make money simply by promoting things you like on your own. Your favorite books, electronic gadgets, special body wash, etc can all be promoted through amazon and you would receive a commission.

This is great because it allows ANY professional athlete to be their own sponsor. You don’t have to wait for the brands you like to sponsor you. You can use your platform and following to promote a product you like and get money for it. Athletes are natural trendsetters, fans and consumers gravitate to what athletes like. Amazon gives you an easy platform to do just that and make residual income and pay off the amazon prime membership you probably pay for.
