This will be a quick tip, but important. Once, Amazon Associates allowed you to put links into e-mail news letters. They do not anymore! If someone tells you that you can, they just haven’t seen the update. As far as I know, no one has gotten in trouble for doing this. But it could lead you to big trouble. Your account could be shut down, and they could even go after you for not keeping the agreement. So just avoid it.
However, you can still use Newsletters to help drive people to you Associates work. How? Well instead of putting the direct buy link, direct them to your website about page for the product. (like your book, or recommending program). On that page you can use your Amazon Associate link. Then you have your commission from the e-mail link.
It’s easy, simple, but important! So don’t make this mistake!
