Today came an interesting case in the field of online shops / marketing – We push an Amazon sales channel, with its own online shop thanks to affiliate theme. More precisely, it’s about sellers who don’t have their own online shop and whose main sales channel is Amazon (or similar providers like eBay or affiliate programs like Affili.net, Zanox, etc.). The American company is the market leader and offers a great sales platform with intelligent logistics processes and an unbeatable, high-reach website. Want to know more about the basics?

With services such as Amazon Fullfillment, for example, the provider stores products and goods directly in its warehouse – the retailer only needs a small transit warehouse. So if you are smart in buying and selling, all worries about logistics & Co. are taken away. At the same time, the case is exciting for online marketers and affiliates who want to set up their own online shops with third-party products, but also for companies and businesses that want to offer their digital visitors an additional service, or want to establish an additional sales channel.Looking for the right design theme for WordPress?

Amazon Affiliate Theme – Experience with selling Amazon products
My experience with the Amazon Affiliate Theme was simply outstanding. Why I want to tell you again! Firstly, you can easily install the Amazon Affiliate Theme into an existing WordPress system. WordPress is one of the most common content management systems used in the market. This makes integration easy, as there are many tutorials and guides for WordPress.

Is the much once installed and inserted. There are numerous options for customization. Now read on below: Experiences with Amazon Affiliate
The Online Shop / Affiliate Concept – Increase Amazon Sales Rank through Satellite Pages
Through promotions, for example in Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, etc., you increase the traffic for your sales landing page (landing page means the page is kept slim and usually pursues only one goal, here sale, or click on the button [“CTA = Call to action”]). Clicking on the button opens the Amazon product page in a new tab, but sales are then made by the user on the old Amazon platform. The clear advantage: The own Amazon sales rank increases significantly. Thus the popularity of the product, ratings and finally also the Amazon-internal sales. The cycle is also known in online marketing from “classic” satellite sites. Their only purpose is to collect traffic (i.e. readers) and redirect them to the actual project. Thus, a well-filled nutrition blog on the web could only be a stepping stone to diet and weight loss products in an online shop. So in principle, processes are interposed that provide new sources of visitors.

Digression | Why a Child Theme? There are always updates. We all know this from computer, tablet or smartphone. Also for WordPress there are always updates. In the following, of course, the circumstances for the theme change. Therefore, one adds a second, editable theme. If one now wants to update the basic theme, no changes are lost, which were made in the child theme. Mostly these are changes in the CSS file (styling of the homepage).

Without any previous knowledge of the theme, I set myself the task of creating a fully-fledged online shop within a very short time and then integrating it into an existing project. The result is impressive! The entire construction of the theme, the setup of the WordPress system, the database, etc. took only 150 minutes. Additionally I created all pages, imported products, built menus and extensive footers. Of course, a newsletter plugin must not be missing – my choice was Mailchimp. Also the design was adapted. This was basically very easy to solve by Design > Customizations already theme-internally. Additionally I added a few targets to the Custon-CSS. All this was possible within just one afternoon, the article, was also still there. The theme offers a wide range of possibilities, especially for imaginative people. This makes the WordPress template interesting not only for eBay or Amazon entrepreneurs, but also for anyone with a flair for digital business sense – ie. online marketers. I wish you a lot of fun with the first ideas and implementations.
