Once you are logged in you can see several panels on the top allowing you to browse for a particular product, create an A- store , get widgets etc.
Here you have to decide how you really want to market your products. You can get the HTML code for a particular product, get code for an entire widget or use Amazon’s interactive a-store creator. The products, widgets and a-store can be fully customized according to your websites.
If you are planning to open an e-commerce store then the a-store is a great platform to make a professionally looking website. If you can execute a successful website integrated with the amazon assocites then the profits can bulk up to a large amount.

- Use widgets only if you have a wide range of products to offer.
- Try to promote your services on YouTube and other social networking sites.
