Amazon is the world’s largest marketplace and with so many offerings, it might be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for. Especially if you don’t know it exists!
One great way to find new and exciting things to improve your life is by following Amazon’s influencers. They range from experts to celebrities, and even everyday people like you and me that have a knowledge of the products they are describing.
It’s actually a pretty smart marketing play by Amazon to jump on the word of mouth / mini-celebrity play. It expands their audience and the ability for them to win a potential buyer over if someone they know like and trust is pitching a product they are thinking about buying. At this point, I’m sure your question is “How do I follow an Influencer on Amazon?” Don’t worry, we got you.
If you are looking to follow influencers on Amazon, there are a few things you need to know. Amazon is one of the most popular platforms for influencers, and there are a variety of ways to follow them. In this article, we will show you how to follow influencers on Amazon using the Amazon App.
What is Amazon?
In case you’ve been living under a rock (which I’m sure Amazon could still deliver to…), Amazon started as a digital commerce company that operates several businesses under its umbrella, most commonly known are its eCommerce websites, including Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Amazon also produces branded consumer products and offers a streaming media service called Amazon Prime.
What is the Amazon App?
The Amazon App is a mobile app that allows you to find and buy products from Amazon. The app can also be used to find and follow influencers.
How to Follow Influencers On Amazon App?
To follow an influencer on Amazon, you first need to find their Amazon profile. This can be done by searching for their name or keyword in the Amazon website’s search bar, or by visiting the Influencers tab on the Amazon website. Once you find their profile, click on the “follow” button next to their name. This will add them to your follower list and allow you to track their posts and sales.
Oh, but you have to have an account and be logged in… Once you have logged in, you can find influencers by looking for “People and Communities” on the main menu and selecting “Influencers.” From there, you can select a specific influencer to follow or browse by topic. You can also follow all of the influencers in a given category, or choose specific influencers to follow based on their interests.

How do YOU join the Amazon Influencer Program?
Joining the Amazon Influencer Program is easy! You Just have to have a few things in place.
- Killer social media – Amazon wants you to have a Youtube, Facebook, or Instagram account all set up and rolling
- The more the merrier – To get an official “influencer” account, you have to have a decent following on your platforms. Though no solid numbers have been released up to this point, 20k is the speculated number.
- Give and take – Amazon wants to see decent engagement between you and your audience. How else are you going to get those clicks!?
If all those are in place, you can head over to their Influencer portal and sign up!
You’d have to submit some info, profile pics, a bio, and the URLs to your social media profiles, but that’s to be expected.
Once that’s done, you’ll be asked to choose your platform of choice (HINT: the one with the biggest and most engaged following wins!).
Then if accepted, set up your storefront and start sharing your favorite products with your audience!
