How to Become a Blogging from Paradise Amazon Affiliate

May 14, 2015

8MoneyMakingTipsforDigitalNomadsCoverImagePodcastYou are special. Really. I mean, I genuinely love you guys. SO much, that I entrust you with my brand.

The Blogging from Paradise community has been overwhelmingly supportive of me over the….almost…..year! Wow, amazing right? Anyway, to boost our blogging income collectively I am genuinely, positively, excited to announce that I found a neat, prospering, fun way to become a Blogging from Paradise affiliate on Amazon.

Why I’m Doing this


I want to get these eBooks and paperbacks in the hands of millions of bloggers (HA….a blog commenting book). I want to free a gazillion peeps who want to retire to a life of island hopping. I can only do so much by myself. But you, my growing army of readers and leaders and epicly awesome folks, you can help me spread the word, and you can generate income as ya help me, so we can both set a deluge of folks free.

Guys, I know more than a few of you have asked me about becoming an affiliate and more than a few will be turned on to this idea after reading this post because it’s so incredibly easy to set up.

Step 1: Sign up as an Amazon affiliate.

Step 2: Create the carousel widget for your blog.

Step 3: Post the code on a widget, and post the widget to your blog.

Who’s the Ideal Affiliate?


Travel bloggers.

Blogging tips bloggers.

Digital nomads.

Website owners who crave generating a steady, passive income stream, without spending the time to brainstorm, create and publish a product.

Any breathing blogger.

OK, maybe not any living, breathing blogger. But:

  • travel bloggers
  • blogging tips bloggers
  • digital nomads (buy my new eBook)
  • retired from the 9-5 bloggers
  • dot com lifestyle bloggers
  • internet lifestyle junkie bloggers

Basically, any blogger who wants to align with the Blogging from Paradise brand, who wants to generate affiliate sales and hey, who doesn’t want to take the time or energy to create your first – or another – product at this time.

It’s like me saying, let me do the grunt work, the legwork, and you pop in and get a cut. Of course, we both benefit.

I have to give props to my friend Leanne Schmidt at Explore Taste Travel as she shared the idea with me a while back. I’m acting on it now.



Strong ass commissions for eBooks. I sell Blogging From Paradise eBooks for $9.99. I don’t do the common $0.99 to $2.99 price window. You also have a mad selection of eBooks to choose from. 124 eBooks in the library currently. Also, align with a brand which has appeared on both Virgin Dot Com and Forbes Dot Com.


  • make money through a passive income stream (no need to create a product; I did that for ya)
  • align with a fascinating, exotic, rapidly-expanding brand (it doesn’t hurt to be known as a Blogging from Paradise affiliate, and God knows you’ll earn karmic brownie points)
  • it’s easy and quick to set up this affiliate income stream
  • my covers do some sweet selling for you
  • you’ll be doing me and you a solid
  • newbie to veteran bloggers, and intermediate ones too, can all optimize their online earnings by becoming an affiliate

How to Do it.

1: Sign Up as an Amazon Affiliate

Click that link. Set up your account. This is a 1-2-3 affair. I know, because I’ve been an Amazon affiliate. So after you sign up for an account….

2: Create the Widget

Click on that link. Click on the Custom Ad section.

Under Search and Add products

leave the drop down box to

In the little box to the right, search for: blogging from paradise

The results yield a whole bunch of my eBooks.

Click “add product” and 6 to 10 products to your widget carousel.

Click the Next Step button, below the Added to Widget section.

OK, now you’ll see a Layout & Size section.

Work with that.

I like the Shuffle Products option, with Show Title.

Then I select the Ferris Wheel Orientation.

Widget Size, 600 by 200.

On the right side of the page you’ll see a Preview section.

Click on the up and down arrows below the carousel, holding each button down, to see the carousel rotate.

Pretty dang neat.

If you like it, click Add to my Web page.

Then, after clicking Agree to that legal mumbo jumbo – joking – copy the code.

3: Add that Code to a Widget on your Blog


Paste the code into a widget on your blog.BFPAffiliate

You’re now a Blogging from Paradise Amazon affiliate!

Exciting, right?

The carousel widget thing looks kinda like the stack of book covers….to your right.

  2. Sure Laura!

  3. TG thanks so much!

  4. Hi Ryan,

    As you know I’ve promoted some of your books via my site and specifically in my Shop page. I like the idea of the carousel and probably need to add that too.

    I just can’t keep up with all your books. I am reading some at the moment but you publish quicker than I have time to read!! 😉

  5. Good luck with your plans. And thanks for the info.

  6. Angela thanks for stopping by 😉

  7. Nirmala thanks so much 🙂

  8. Thanks Yogesh, enjoy the updates!

    Happy Blogging.

  13. Agness Says:

    Great tips, mate!! I’ll definitely keep them in mind 🙂

  14. Jeanie Beck Says:

    Hi Ryan,

    I just added the widget to my website! I also look forward to reading your ebooks! 🙂

  15. I added the widget to both of my sites!

  16. Awesome, thanks Sneha!

  17. Sneha Says:

    Hey.. I would like to congratulate for your new venture, you’re something what to say… blah blah blah… amazing.. 🙂 amazon affiliates are getting down in some regions of asia continents,since many affiliate networks are getting tremendous oppositions… I’m already an Amazon Affiliate so I’ll head over and try your widget out on my site for a bit.Great stuff Ryan. You have a great and inspiring story. Cheers.. 🙂 🙂

  18. Nirmala Says:

    Hi Ryan,

    First, I would like to congratulate for your new venture, you’re something exceptional mate.

    I’ll become an Amazon affiliate soon as I’m still not getting enough time to get into the AM.

    I can guess that your e-book will be helpful for the bloggers who roam here and there, I’ll try to grab it.

    Have a great weekend Ryan 🙂

  19. Angela Says:

    hey Ryan congratulations and good on this venture,it is great that you are giving bloggers a chance to earn,thank you.

  20. Bingo Gabe! Makes total sense to me 😉 Just grabbing a few and reviewing prospers us, and it helps folks a bunch too…..I just want to give away all of my secrets for like under 3 bucks, to bring along millions. Thanks so much!

  21. Adeel thanks so much! You are a A PLUS networker my friend!

  22. Thanks Brenda!

  23. Hi Elaine! With each sale on your site, Amazon sends money to your bank account; after it reaches a threshold. It’s a partnership, really. Publish helpful content to your blog and build bonds through commenting and social media, to drive your sales.

  24. Awesome thanks Donna! Excited to hear about your plan 😉

  25. Hi Ryan,

    Brilliant just brilliant! I would become an affiliate, but I can’t in my state 🙁 However I have other things in my mind to promote this affiliate product for you.

    Why? Because you rock! And I have known you for such a long time that I know these books can and will benefit others. Just give me a little time to set things up and I’ll get back to you soon.

    We can do something fun and offer it to buyers.

    All the best,


  26. I don’t understand how this could earn money for me. I see how you could earn money. I am new to the blogging world and I guess this doesn’t make sense.

  27. Brenda Lee Says:

    Hey Ryan,

    What a fabulous idea! I’m already an Amazon Affiliate so I’ll head over and try your widget out on my site for a bit. Good luck!


  28. Adeel Sami Says:

    Hello Ryan,

    So congrats to you, mate! 🙂

    And with this guide, I have added the widget up on my blog! Very happy to start my first monetizing experience with yours eBooks that are there to truly help every blogger from any field and any level – Same like one of it did to me.

    Truly blessed to have you in my circle and that I came to know you sooner! 🙂

    ~ Adeel Sami

  29. I have this genius, yet completely unoriginal idea of buying the titles that interest me most (like the blog commenting empire one) and doing a review on them with my affiliate link included.

    Being helpful and providing a solid resource to the people of the internet is always a good plan.

    Thanks for sharing this guide, Ryan!

  30. Sorry Phil, link fixed!

  31. Awesome, First a huge Congrats Ryan, and may the odds be in your favour.

    I am an Amazon Affiliate already and I will put your widget on my site. I have also tweeted & G+s this article. WTG

  32. Hi Ryan,
    Good to hear from you again!
    What a lovely information it is!
    But sad to say when i tried to click on the first link [ ] i got a message saying:

    Looking for something?
    We’re sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site
    Associates Central Home Home Page
    and again i clicked on the next link i got the widget link and i added it in my blogspot pages, here is the link for your information.
    Thanks for the notification,
    Lets hope for the best
    Keep in touch
    Keep informed
    Have a wonderful time ahead in that lovely island
    ~ Phil

  33. Awesome Max. Fab and Lorraine are super helpful; they can probably figure it out as it’s querying “blogging from paradise” in the carousel banner section, then plugging some code into a widget. Please let me know if they run into any problems, OK?

  34. maxwell ivey Says:

    hi ryan; well i have no trouble with the idea of being an affiliate and selling your books on my site. however, its the process. i have an amazon affiliate account that i never use because of the question of how to find and select products and then how to incorporate them into my site so they look and run well. but in this case i just sent the link to fabrizio van marciano who has been helping with the site. if he can’t do it, then next i’ll have to ask lorraine reguly or ashley faulkes. but i’m hopeful one of my usual team members will be able to help me add this. best of luck, max

  35. Vicky, neat! Agreed on both counts. Just want to spread that word for all of us. Thank you!

  36. Tonmoy, the grass ain’t growing under your feet 😉 Well done my man!

  37. Hi Wayne! I have no knowledge of traffic requirements but if so, oh yes, I am sure you can re-apply. Really though, I see Amazon posting my eBooks all over FB and the like. They are HUGE on spreading the word so I’d be surprised if some traffic requirement existed. Let me know how it works for ya 😉 Thanks so much!

  38. Thank you Dannielle!!

  39. I had no idea! Will sign up tonight, thanks Ryan. Your blog is always a massive source of guidance!

  40. Wayne Seto Says:

    Hi Ryan,

    I just noticed that the question that I wanted to ask was just asked by Dannielle in the previous comment regarding Amazon requiring a certain amount of traffic to qualify for an Amazon associate account. On the off chance that I don’t get approved, do you know if I can re-apply later after I’ve built up more traffic for my travel blog?

    Great stuff Ryan. You have a great and inspiring story. Cheers!

  41. Dannielle I am almost certain you are qualified; I know of no minimum traffic threshold. Sign up and see what they say; I almost guarantee you’ll be approved.

  42. I’d love to do this, but I’m not sure I qualify to become an affiliate yet – I’m guessing you need a certain amount of traffic?

  43. Hello Ryan, Good to hear about your Story. I am also going to start my jounrey With Affiliate soon. At this time, I am busy with lunching my Dream Project as well you may know i am going to lunch my Brand with my Name as well at the end of June. And I will try Amazon Affiliate at this and after 1 year of My Brand Blog i will start selling Blogging Guidelines E-Books on Amazon 🙂

  44. Vicky Says:

    Hello Ryan Biddulph,

    Sounds interesting to try it and I guess I’m gonna surely try it. The first I liked about the ebook is its related to travel as well as lot of blogging tips.

    Secondly the pricing is also affordable.
