Recently I was approved to become an Amazon Influencer as part of the new Amazon Influencer program. Amazon launched the influencer program to allow influencers with large social followings to set up their own Amazon vanity URLs and pages where they can showcase their favorite products (and continue to earn commissions!)
I was approved from my Twitter profile for The Las Vegas Tweetup (My red headed step child).
The Amazon Influencer program is a different program than the Amazon Associate program that you’re probably familiar with. The Influencer program targets established social media influencers with an easy way (vanity URLs) to share affiliate links, gift guides and product recommendations on social media.
Anyone can sign up to become an Amazon Associate, but it’s a bit harder to become an Influencer. To become an Influencer, you must apply to become an Influencer or be invited by Amazon.
To qualify as an Amazon influencer, you must have an active and growing Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or YouTube account. Amazon takes into account the number of followers and quantity of engagement as well as the type of content that you typically post. If you don’t qualify the first time, don’t worry… the eligibility requirements may change over time. Try again later on.
When you get accepted to the Amazon Influencer program, you’ll get your very own customizable page on Amazon with a vanity URL to showcase the products that you love and recommend to your audience. This will naturally help to increase earnings and reach a larger office.

Why would you want a vanity URL? For one thing, a vanity URL is easier to remember. It makes shopping easier for your followers by allowing them to search, find and shop on your page. And of course, you’ll earn referral fees from qualifying purchases!
Not only that, but your Amazon Influencer landing page also includes social links back to your social media accounts and website, which means even more traffic back to your site!
In order to apply, visit this link: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/influencers. During the sign up process, be sure to choose the social media account which shows the largest influence on your followers.
Amazon helps you market with a helpful guide with tips for sharing your vanity URL on social media channels as well as your blog. Remember to comply with applicable disclosure laws and regulations.
As an Amazon seller, I’m excited to see where the Amazon Influencer Program is headed and I encourage you to sign up!
