Chances are, you use Amazon for just about everything. From ordering tech and books to getting last minute deliveries on Prime. You stream movies and order dog food in a pinch. But Amazon is also a fashion treasure trove, and they are delivering up the goods this holiday season. You may not yet know that you can also buy your holiday party wardrobe and NYE outfit from your favorite brands on Amazon! Including all accessories.

Better yet, if you’re a fashion blogger, you probably did not know that you can earn advertising fees for linking to Amazon Fashion products through their affiliate marketing program, Amazon Associates.

Amazon Associates helps influencers get a share of the revenue. As Amazon has grown its fashion footprint to become one of the largest online apparel retailers, its Associates program is also adding new opportunities to help fashion influencers monetize their blog, including special financial incentives and premium content for qualified influencers. This is great news for you if you have a fashion blog and especially if your readers are Prime members!

At Create & Cultivate Atlanta many influencers who stopped by the Amazon Fashion booth were excited by the program, especially after being able to browse their great brands at the booth. Many signed up to learn more on the spot, spirited by the possibility of leveraging Amazon in a supplementary way.

With millions of products to choose from and thousands of fashion brands beloved by bloggers—from Rachel Zoe to Vince to BB Dakota—there are a thousand ways to monetize your outfit blog posts.

It’s an earnings opportunity that offers special incentives for qualified fashion influencers, who get access to premium content like curated newsletters and Amazon experiences, such as working with Style Code Live, Amazon’s daily, 30-minute live show where style enthusiasts can connect, chat, shop, and get the inside scoop on the latest fashion and beauty trends.

One of our favorite perks about Amazon Associates is that you still get paid even if a user buys a product different from the one you linked to on Amazon. The way the affiliate program is structured actually ensures that you get paid for “halo” items bought within a 24-hour period of arriving on Amazon via your affiliate link (with a few exceptions for certain items). And you know how easy it is to buy multiple products on Amazon when you’re Prime!

To make the most out of this program, get started today! Holiday gifting season is one of the biggest online shopping times of the year and it's already here. Which means you might make a little extra to shop for friends and family this year. 

To create an Amazon Associates account, create your Store ID here. To apply to be a fashion influencer with Amazon Associates, email fashion-associates@amazon.com with 1) Subject: Amazon Fashion Associates Application, 2) Your blog URL, 3) Your Instagram Handle and followers, 4) Your Store ID (see above).
