Cha-Ching: Amazon Video On Demand For Affiliates

Posted on 9.07.2008

Amazon Associates have a new opportunity in Amazon Video On Demand. Affiliates can promote individual titles such as The Office or Law & Order and earn 10% on all referrals (up to $1.50 per item). There is no limit on the number of items on which referral fees can be earned.

The Amazon services enables users to watch movies and television shows commercial free on Macs or PCs instantly - sort of like a NetFlix competitor.  Unlike the NetFlix Affiliate program however, Amazon Associates can add trailers to their site via the Amazon Video On Demand Preview Player widget which should help conversion rates significantly.

The first two minutes of videos automatically play at no charge to customers when they visit the product detail page. At any time during the 2-minute viewing period, customers can choose to purchase or rent the title to watch it in its entirety, driving higher conversion and increased referral fees for Associates.
