I found a cool plugin called WP Shopping Page. What this does is you put in your amazon.com and ebay affiliate ids, and it goes to these websites and finds products (based on keywords you have entered) and creates affiliate pages for those products. It automatically formats the page (sometimes perfect, some times not so perfect). If you have a blog or website, you could easily created a page related to your topic. While you can create a store at amazon.com (using their astore), this will automatically update as new products are added.
No more fiddling around in affiliate networks control panels and searching for good products to promote. WP Shopping Pages will display the top products related to your niche automatically and save time.

The other automated tool is called WP Robot. I may have spoken about this on the podcast before. It is basically an auto blogging tool (which I am not a fan of). This is similar to the WP Shopping page except its making posts instead of pages. it's a pretty powerful plugin as it might go out and scrape a questions about an apple iPod from yahoo answers, turn it into a post, and link the Apple iPod at amazon.com Automatically post Youtube Videos, Amazon Products, eBay auctions, Clickbank ads and much more to your blog without lifting a finger. You control what key words it is search for to make posts, how often it posts, what template it uses (so you have control over the look of the site).You can find out more at wprobot.net
If you are looking to try a “set it and forget it” approach to making some money online, these two tools may be just what you are looking for.
