First there were Websites (90’s). Then there were Apps (2000’s). Now there are BOTs. Some call it the BOT RUSH. In this article lets take a serious look at How to make money with bots.
As a prerequisite, have a good conversational BOT deployed in any -or- all of the Messenger platforms. If not, You can get one HERE
- Amazon Affiliate Revenue:
One of the biggest advantages of a BOT is: The moment someone subscribes to your BOT, you can reach him whenever you want & where-ever he/ she is. Thanks to the ever connected Mobile phone & the PUSH notifications from Facebook messenger ( or Whatspp, Skype, Slack etc. ), whenever you say something to the subscriber….it reaches him as a PUSH with a DING!
Now Amazon provides the best affiliate in the world. The affiliate commission ranges from 5% to 25% on the purchase value. They pay on-time. Every-time 🙂
All you need to do is, select a compelling product. Tip: Select an amazing Mobile phone accessory and send it to your subscribers ( as the user is checking the BOT from his mobile phone & there is huge possibility he would need the accessory for his phone ). Applying a simple math, 10 out of 100 people will buy the product for sure. Keep doing this every week once ie. Keep Monday as the day for promoting Shopping products.
Now calculate the affiliate you will make every month. This keeps growing as you add more subscribers. Keep 1000 subscribers as a initial goal for your BOT.
Similarly, you can also find interesting products in Fancy.com, Etsy.com etc. And they provide good affiliate commissions as well.
Note: It would be really superb, if your BOT already is integrated with Amazon on the back end and allows people to shop based on their will. This BOT HERE has Amazon already integrated to it 🙂
