Amazon is not keeping affiliates with a low track record. Are there other consumer sites you recommend to post reviews as affiliates?
commission junction or shareasale allow you to be an affiliate for several products at once, which allows you to reach a minimum payment sooner.
Customer reviews are very influential and it can increase sales more than marketing with a paid ad but can be hard to get. When you see 50 five-star reviews of a product, you tend to trust…and I bet you buy it.
