Associate-O-Matic Builds Amazing Amazon Associate sites! I was doing some web research and ran across a site that I found quite amazing. All the listings were Amazon listings but the presentation was fantastic! I did some digging around and found the site had been created with a specialized script that works with the Amazon Associate’s program for the US as well as Amazon UK, Canada, France, and Germany!
Here are some of the websites build with Associate-O-Matic.
Even Amazon seems to be impressed: Steve Rabuchin, Director of Developer Relations, Amazon Web Services is quoted on the site as saying
“Associate-O-Matic has leveraged the Amazon E-Commerce Service (Amazon ECS) to provide an easy-to-use store-building solution for Associates. This is innovative because they have built their offering on top of Amazon ECS, an Amazon Web Services developer API, in order to help Associates build powerful front-end websites quickly without having to be a developer themselves. ”
The price is $99 initially with a $20 per year renewal… and it can be put on any number of sites that you own.

Would I buy it myself? Quite likely if I were targeting a niche with alot of products in it and didn’t mind the small commission. It’s also ideal for creating a “Company Store” for your customers who are coming to your site and who are likely to do business with you anyway because of a past relationship.
For a big organization capitalizing on loyal customers, the price for a single site is not bad. For individual entrepreneurs, it’s a good price if you’re planning to install it on multiple domains. If you are setting up 20 Amazon stores, for instance, in different niches, your first year cost for the script is only $5 per domain and after that only a $1 per domain in addition to domain name fees and hosting.
The downside? If you’re serving a particular niche that requires you to offer products from a variety of vendors or if you’re wanting to make Adsense revenue, there doesn’t seem (at my first glance) any way to integrate other options. [Ok, I was wrong, here's one of their sites with Adsense: http://www.toolsonline.biz/. Many of their customers' sites seem to have Adsense running on them. ] Some of the customer stores seem to be integrating this script only on one part of the site while having custom content elsewhere… like at Home Theater Shack.
Very interesting and thought provoking. It will take some time wrapping my mind around the possibilities, but I thought you’d like seeing this for yourself!
