What is EasyAzon?
EasyAzon is a WordPress plugin (set of plugins a Core plugin and the Pro plugin) which allows you to insert Amazon product links, images, call to action buttons and info boxes into your WordPress posts so that you can benefit from Amazon affiliate sales for products you review, showcase or merely related products to what your articles is about. It is a very simple way to grab a readers attention and try to capture some Amazon affiliate commission which grows with the more products you sell on Amazon.
It’s integration is among the best and is one of my top 5 favorite WordPress plugins that I have been using since it first released. This is truly a plugin that I endorse and use on DragonBlogger and every other site that I have passive Amazon affiliate sales enabled on the site. There localization options are a fantastic choice if you run an International blog or have a high volume of traffic from readers who are not in the origin country of your blog, this way you can set local cookies for the Amazon store for the nearest reader and they have a greater chance to buy from their closest Amazon store.
What this means is that someone visiting your post from Canada will see that product listed in the Amazon.ca store for them, rather than the Amazon.com store which may be your default. The caveat is you have to register yourself as an Amazon affiliate for each and every Amazon store and there are A LOT of them now. Each one tracks earnings separately and has minimum threshhold of $100 payout so you may end up having a lot of trickle income streams from the smaller Amazon sites for your market.
This is only a casual glance at EasyAzon 4 and I will go into more details with more detailed videos, review and walkthroughs later, this post is merely to show you how the various functions look and isn’t walking you through configuration but what it looks like to the reader when you put Amazon affiliate links and images into your blog post.
After you have EasyAzon (Core) and EasyAzon 4 Pro installed, after you configure it with your AWS keys (which you get from Amazon) you simply have a new “EasyAzon” button in your WordPress post editor.
Click on the EasyAzon Button and you get a search box to find the product you are looking for, you can search by product name or by ASIN number directly.
After you find the product you want in the search results, you can choose between doing a simple Text Link, an Image Link (image that links to product), a CTA Link which is a Call to Action button, or an Info Block. If you want to see an example of what each looks like, just look below.
