Thanks again guys! It is sales like this that inspire me to keep working hard. The reason I shared this sale here is because this could happen to anyone of us. So, hopefully you found some inspiration reading about it. The fact is I didn't do anything special, didn't do anything that you guys aren't doing. I just got lucky. Maybe next time, the big sale will be yours!
Way to go Janet - that is great. I love big bonuses like that. I had a big one from Squidoo not too long ago when someone purchased a $600 slide - it is always nice to see big numbers and it is true it can happen to anyone.
I was not promoting this ring on any of my hubs. It was just a random item purchased once someone clicked through one of my amazon links. I don't know which hub initiated the sale. I just know the sale originated from hubpages.
Wow.. just wow.. and just what I needed to hear.. Haven't made any rev on Hubpages since I signed up, primarily cause only have an Amazon account and was kinda in the doldrums.. This has so made me hopeful.. as did Mark Knowles advice in a separate forum.. Congrats and wishing you great sales in the future.. :-)
That's awesome! Funny thing: I checked my amazon sales today too (randomly), and I sold an LCD TV for about a $44 profit! Like you, it's not an item I featured...but I guess my 24 hr affiliate code stuck with them as they shopped around amazon.
It happens - if someone clicks off one of your links and goes shopping you still get the commission even if it is not what you referred. Happens to me all the time - here and on my Squidoo pages. On one of my toy lenses on Squidoo - some one bought a drive shaft for a car from Ebay. You will see it happen I am sure.
I had a really big order on my Amazon account once (a Karaoke machine or something). It's not a product I ever promoted. I was really pleased... until the purchaser returned the item and my commission got removed from my account!!!!
I've been working long and hard to reach the goal of the elusive $1000 per month from HubPages and this November I finally made it $611 amazon & $489 adsense.Hopefully with some consistent work I can keep to this...
I just checked my Amazon account and noticed i have made a sale. Though not much, it's just $3.89 as commission. And guess what, it came from the hub i least expect would give me any sales.So happy to be saying...
