Apparently Amazon is making enough money that they don’t need help from anyone else to promote their products. Either that or they really don’t give a damn about anyone else which is more likely the case. Since 2009, I have been using the Amazon Associates program to monetize some of the websites that I own and operate, including this one. As an example, on this very site, I have written numerous reviews of products and always make sure to include links to my Amazon Affiliate account whenever I write those reviews. I have also written guest posts for several other websites where I review different products and, of course, link to those products on Amazon so that I get paid for purchases made from people clicking on those links.
