I wrote this post asking for advice on product opinions kind of posts & the few answers I got really helped me plan out some new content. Not sure if anyone loves reading this posts as much, but I, for sure, enjoy favorites kind of content and I would have loved writing it myself too. I wrote out some quick drafts as well, you know! But now there’s a problem.
Amazon closed my Affiliates account as soon as I was planning to make one of the posts live. 😀 Now I know that Amazon does this if no sale has been made via your account within a certain timeline, but that timeline was not over for me yet. Also, the reason cited for closing my account was “content not being original”. This was not only frustrating but also surprising. I am not sure what part of my content their algorithm picked as not being original. I was all the more concerned as this is the worst form of reason I would want my blog to be associated with. The only post I could think of was about a blog which has now closed and I posted their pinterest screenshot citing complete references. I obviously appealed against this decision but it also turns out that Amazon is stupid enough to directly close accounts like this and even if your appeal is successful, all you can do is create a new account. I would hate to create a new account on Amazon Affiliate again, to be honest. Even though I would think its fairly convenient to use.
Now my question – are you aware of any such simple to use affiliate programs? Preferably free, since I am not using this blog to generate any income yet, but more importantly, a program that helps me link up relevant products across marketplaces, surely Indian marketplaces. I came across this one called ‘Clickbank’ which is supposed to be one of the best out there, but what I understood is that you can only link up products available on their marketplace like Yoga classes or what not. 😀
Looking forward to get some helpful suggestions yet again! 🙂 Thank you so much!
