Book Suppository – Purchase any books, Anywhere with Free Worldwide Shipping (My Review)
www.BookSuppository.com.au (My Review)
Why did I choose The Book Suppository..
Why did I choose the Book Depository Affiliate program?
You have to start somewhere. I read. I know what a book is. I know the world sells millions of books. Why can’t I get, just a tiny little piece of the pie?
Let me break it down for you here..
The Book Depository is a MASSIVE online book store. Probably the biggest. Like any other Enormi-Companies, they don’t do everything themselves. Gone are the old days of a company, a wholesale company, purchasing truckloads of stock from suppliers, and bringing it to their central warehouse, where teams of thousands of men and women work tirelessly to pick, pack, and ship out your product. To a much smaller extent, they still do, which is awesome, but big companies are a lot more savvy nowadays, a lot more streamlined with business, especially retail, and they are a lot better at stretching that almighty dollar.
The Book depository is an employer of businesses. They list all the available products on their website, and when someone purchases, they send the order through to the business who dispatches the item direct to their customer. By doing this, they can have loads of distribution centres, all over the world, which is why they can have Any Book, Anywhere in the world within about 3 days.. (or close too).
Now, to an extent, they still do have their own warehousing and distribution, but its not like it used to be 10 or 20 years ago. It’s far more streamlined these days, and takes less people to make a whole lot more money! Don’t the shareholders love it!!
So knowing that they need to sell books, why can’t I be the one who directs traffic to their website, and get a small slice of the Profit Pie. You can do this too. Find yourself a little Niche product, build a simple website, direct a little traffic, do a little advertising or social media hype.. and watch what happens.
“I love the feeling of having my own little website to nurture and grow. It’s like my own business!”
I couldn’t use the same name as the Book Depository, so I Came up with something similar sounding… and something they may peak some comedic interest… Hence.
www.booksuppository.com.au was born.
I set up the .au site because im based in Australia, and thats where my focus was. But now I realise it doesn’t matter where you are based, only who buys… and the overseas market is so much bigger that Down Under… so i added a few extra domains www.book-suppository.com and www.booksupp.com and just pointed them at the site.
All really simple stuff you can do for your own Niche site. Just contact me if you want some help setting it up.

So the first thing you need to do is a little research. Find out how many people are looking for your niche.. because let’s face it, if no-one is looking for what you have.. you won’t be selling it.
Now you have a product you can sell.. Grab a simple domain name from any number of registrars, and build a site. I first used the Weebly Platform to build my fist site, and its still hosing the www.booksuppository.com.au today.. but I have used WIX in the past also. VERY user-friendly platforms for newbies! They can HOST the sites for you too. They will show you great reports too, like how many hits your site gets, and where they come from.
I progressed on over time and now build all my sites with WordPress. You can do alot more with WordPress, and the SEO functions are far more superior.
I won’t go into too much info on the steps of building a Niche Site, as I am currently putting together a web tutorial. Sign up to the newsletter or E-mail me direct if you are interested in checking that out when it gets released.
The Book Depository only pays a 5% commission on anything sold by a customer who comes through your link… Now this is quite small compared to other programs out there.. but the product they supply, being quality Books in a VERY reasonable timeframe, with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING, really does make sales an easy starter.
So you have your own Domain, you have built a little site, and linked it through to your affiliate Program (which hopefully you have signed up for by now).
Just keep adding you your site by way of a Blog, or current news and events relating to your industry. The only other thing I can say is.. Don’t give up! You want see results straight away. And when you do, it may only be a matter of cents. But remember.. you have to start somewhere… and the ONLY way after that is UP!
My Conclusions on setting up a Niche Site and with time and marketing, Building it into your very own business…
Give it a go for yourself!! .. is all I can say.
- It’s NO risk to try.
- Its Fun. You may just enjoy it. You will learn HEAPS along the way.. what to do and what not to do, and you might make a dollar or 2 in the process. If you get really good at it, you can duplicate your sites with ease, and if you ever get to a point where you don’t need to get up in the morning and drive to a place where you make your boss money…
…Then you’re the winner!
Good luck with it. I would love to hear your stories too!
