The approach you use will vary quite significantly depending on what you are already doing in the online market.

One of the best services that one can make use of on Amazon is for those that are already selling a product online. The service is known as an aStore. Say for example you are selling footballs as a product or information on football as a sport generally. Using the aStore function, you can devise your own mini website on Amazon that will host every single product that is related to football. The link of this Amazon store that you have created can be posted on your original website. This will help you make use of the traffic that you are generating towards your website to sell more products other than your own. For each product that you sell on Amazon, you will automatically entitle yourself to a commission.
