Most of us buy a wide range of products from Amazon.

Amazon is a user-friendly site which helps to create and display carousels, promotional banners, and widgets for the products recommended by me.

However, it requires serious efforts to encourage visitors to visit my blog and click on promotional links. For this, one needs to build trust and help them with valuable content, benefit, features and review for the recommended product.
