Congrats on the sale! Amazon can be difficult to make money with because of their short term cookie. It would be much better for affiliates if they had a 14 day or longer cookie, but then they'd have to pay out more commissions!
Congrats..!I made my first .40cents a couple of days back.When I just checked casually ,I saw this and nearly fell off my chair.I have become greedy now and keep on checking every 2 hrs..no luck..lol!I am yet to apply for adsense as I wanted to get some traffic from google so that they do not refuse me!
You are welcome to take a peek at it to get an example of how to formulate an amazon-biased hub, but before you get giddy, I should tell you I've received $0 amazon sales to date.
The hub does do well with adsense, though.
There are some other users who really do well with their hubs that are created for amazon sales. Personally, I took that amazon-geared hub and changed my strategy into an adsense-geared hub. The comparison/product review hubs do pretty well with adsense, wink wink.
At this point now, I've made 6.00 and some change through 3 separate transactions. It's funny, because the Hubs that I've 'designed' for amazon, haven't earned me a dime yet, from amazon at least. On some articles, actually almost all, I will include a few relevant products.
The last few I've done on pet items will hopefully get me some sales in the near future!
I think that adding amazon hubs also adds a more dynamic element to your hubs. The pictures and items are something for the visitors to look at and perhaps be inspired by (or be inspired to buy). I use amazon in almost every hub, almost like I use images to add some color!
Definitely...one thing I hate to see though is that some will just use a keyword and not bother to look at the products displayed causing products to display that yes, match that keyword, but are completely irrelevant. I usually hand pick items if I can't find at least 4, quality related items for my particular keyword.
Again, agreed. I almost always hand pick items that match the hub. If I don't, then who knows what will display there, ya know? It's better to have relevant products showing on a targetted hub like that.
Congrats. The first one is the hardest. Took me much longer to make that first sale, but now am close to the $100 payout just a few weeks later. Some of the sales make sense to what my articles are, some make no sense whatsoever. Just depends on the traffic I think.
Hi hubbers, I made my very first Amazon sale two days ago and you can guess how I feel right now. I know there are hubbers who make several sales a day, but this is a very big milestone to me worth sharing. This is a...
So, ok it's only a couple of bucks, but so what...I'm still really new at this! It was from my women's plus size pajamas hub. I guess every beginner feels like this when they make their first sale, like wow I guess I...
At last! I have finally had my first Amazon sale. It took 384 click but I'm finally there, my conversion rate is now 0.26! Yay.Weirdly the first item I sold has nothing to do with the items I have put...
I only check my amazon affiliate account on a weekly basis, since I didn't have very many product hubs (I do have a few) and didn't expect a sale anytime soon. I was surprised to see an ordered item the other day!...
