Amazon Associates


As you may have already seen, I have proudly been accepted into the Amazon Associates program. In all honesty, though, everyone is accepted, but it feels official to receive an email entitled “Amazon Associates – Your Application Approved”.

So, what does this mean for you, the reader?  Well, for one, it means that you will have ads to look at now.  Whether you hate this or love this, it is most likely here to stay.  I will try my best to keep them from becoming a distraction, but I need something to help pay for hosting.  The way Amazon Associates works is that I get a percentage of the profits from all sales that come from clicks on my site.  I have created targeted ads so that the products advertised will be electronics and RyboMedia reviewed items.

For example, let’s say you come to my site and read the review of SkullCandy INK’D headphones from a few months back.  In the sidebar, you see an ad for the same headphones, at a discounted price, on Amazon.  If you click and purchase, Amazon records that click and gives the site a percentage of the profits, while you pay the same price you would if you went straight to Amazon.  This way, you can get the electronics you want while supporting this site, as well as saving a great deal on the merchandise.

Below are examples of the different kind of advertisements you will see on the site.  If you have a preference, any tips/feedback on the new ads, or if you would like to advertise here (for cheap!), leave a comment below or send an email to r y b o @ r y b o m e d i a . c o m.
