The very first product we see is a Refrigerator water filter. It’s selling for about $46 and have more than 2,286 customer reviews, and has a rating of 4 stars. When you choose to promote a product, you always want to look at these three thing at very least.

  • How many reviews
  • The star rating
  • The price

You want a product to have at least 50 reviews and 4 star rating and you want the price to be at least $50. If the product does not have at least 50 reviews, it might mean it’s still new or it might also mean people are not buying it for whatever reason. If a product does not have at least a 4 star rating, it might mean people are not happy with it and unhappy buyers return products which means you could lose commissions if the product is not selling for at least $50 your commissions will not be very significant. There are exception to this, though if you have a $20 product that has hundreds of positive reviews, you might want to promote it. We are doing this right now to generate niche ideas and we do not have to be overly concerned with particular products.

In the category list, you can see there are a plethora of ideas you can generate. As we saw earlier, clicking on any of these will take you deeper into the sub category. Each of these can be a potential niche for your amazon affiliate site.
