I Had No Idea They Had an Influencer Program, Did You?

As an influencer, I’m always looking for fun ways to share my favorite products with you, my amazing readers! Reviews, photos, videos, and pins on Pinterest are a good way to go, but I’ve found something new that’s pretty exciting.

Have you ever noticed the EXPLORE banner at the top of the page when you go to Amazon’s homepage? I’ve been exploring the products shared here because they’ve caught my eye. They’re always really kitschy and fun. Little did I know, some of the Idea Lists shared on the EXPLORE page, or what Amazon is calling Your Mix, are curated by Influencers.


Perusing Instagram, I noticed that another Influencer had an Amazon Influencer storefront. The storefront is a location their fans can go and shop the products they recommended directly. Intrigued, I looked into the program. Being an Amazon Influencer means that you get your very own customized storefront and vanity URL. When your amazing followers visit your storefront to purchase their new favorite things, the Influencer hosting the storefront earns money. It’s a win-win situation!


I think you can see where this is going. I’m actually already an Amazon Associate. There was some confusion about my Amazon Associate status as I received an email in error telling me that I did not qualify for the program. Since I already have an active Amazon Associate account, all I needed was approval for the Amazon Influencer program and I was in.

There are 4 social media accounts you can apply through to see if you qualify.

  • YouTube – Real-time approval/denial.
  • Twitter – Real-time approval/denial.
  • Facebook – May take up to 5 days.
  • Instagram – May take up to 5 days.

I initially tried Instagram but was denied immediately. I was disappointed but glad I didn’t have to wait 5 days to get the bad news. Next, I tried Twitter and received the same instantaneous bad news: denied.

Not feeling very optimistic, I tried YouTube. To my delight and surprise, I was approved! I became an Amazon Influencer in a matter of seconds! Still feeling shocked and thrilled, I went to work creating my storefront and putting together Idea Lists.


Naturally, I started with my favorite foundations, palettes, face makeup, lip products, and mascaras. I then moved onto skincare adding Idea Lists featuring sheet masks, facial cleansers, toners, and moisturizers. To bridge makeup and skincare, I created an Idea List of my favorite gentle makeup removers.

Then I got a little creative putting together Idea Lists about golden home and desk accessories and decorations, kitschy purses, and kitschy mugs. Thinking of the next big holiday, St. Patrick’s Day, I created an Idea List to guarantee your St. Patrick’s Day is gloriously GREEN. I’m continually creating new lists and adding products to my existing lists, I enjoy working on these Idea Lists!

Putting together Idea Lists is fun and I hope you enjoy the products I’ve included on my lists as much as I enjoyed picking them out. Whether you’re looking for inspiration, gifts, or beauty and skincare guidance, shop my storefront because I’ve got you covered! Basically, each Idea List is like a Pinterest board, but you can conveniently shop the lists and products right there without having to go to a different site.


I love this Amazon Influencer storefront idea, do you? Please share your thoughts on it in the comments!

    Love that you can earn for all of your efforts in research helping readers in so many ways. Time is gold and you save readers just that by doing the research for us! Question? For you to earn credit on Amazon – is it only products you recommend? Or can it be any products purchased on Amazon? I make frequent purchases on Amazon and would love for you to get some credit in thanks. 🙂
