If you’re adding a holiday gift guide to your website or blog using Amazon affiliate links, it could just get you in some trouble.
I see this happening every year. Bloggers putting loads of work into gift guides, only to have to go back and practically start over because they don’t want to break the Amazon affiliate terms of service.
You can’t turn that gift guide into a PDF for distribution all around the internet with all those Amazon affiliate links either. That’s another thing they don’t allow.
You can’t email your list with those links live either. Yet another thing not allowed.
Not to mention how incredibly time consuming a good holiday gift guide post can be!
Are You Unknowingly Breaking the Rules with Amazon Affiliate Links?
What CAN you do?
You can create the gift guide on your website or blog, using the embedded image features from Amazon and you can send traffic to it.
You can create a generic pinnable image with a title and some holiday cheer, just don’t use the images from Amazon.
You can email your list and send them to your website to view the gift guide without linking directly to any products inside the email.
