Default Selling books

How about if we set up a section of the site to sell brewing related books via Amazon. I'm always buying books and there are a lot of great brewing books out there. When you set up with Amazon, they give you a percentage of anything bought through your partnership link. I'm pretty sure that means that if I follow a link for a beer book from here, and then I buy a table saw, homebrewtalk.com would get a cut of the saw price, too...no pun intended.

I'm sure if we made it known to the members here that if they want anything from Amazon, they should go through here, they would. Might generate a little revenue to help the site.

Just a thought.

Great idea! It would get used by me, and hopefully generate some cashflow for TxBrew.

It'd be great to team up with one of the big ingredient sellers...though there probably isn't one big enough to offer a cut.

I think that is a wonderful idea, I would definately use it when ordering from Amazon.

Excellent idea I didn't know Amazon offered that.

I put a link at the top of the website with my referral id in it so now when you click on it and buy something we get a commission.

Thanks again for the suggestion!

Hey great! I'm glad it was that easy.

I think we ought to put together a list of good brew books and make a page on this site, too, so that we can make book recommendations and give people some ides of what to buy from Amazon. I don't know how to embed your referral id in the links, but if you give me the skinny, I'm happy to compile a list of my faves with proper links that you can just slap on a page and attach to the main site.

I shop from Amazon a lot. I even have an Amazon credit card that gives me points to spend on Amazon. I'll be sure to go through here from now on.

I put it at the top right now. "Home Brewing Books"

If you give me the links of books you like I can compile the links using their f orum with the refer code in it.
