    I'm planning on writing a few hubs for Amazon sales. How do I get the right product to write about?

      If you have been approved by Amazon you could  write about any of their products... but the right is to earn from selling them, I guess anyone can write big_smile

      That, of course, is the difficult part.  Writing the hub so your readers trust your opinion of the product is a must!  smile

      am not really good with amazon sales, but I notice that when I write hubs which I really like I do have sales from those hubs

      Good luck lobobrandon!!

    I just got brave enough to do a product review and wrote a Hub. It's still too new to know if I'll sell any of these from Amazon.  I tried this product, and absolutely wanted to share my good experience about it.  If it does well, I'll do more.

      I wrote a product review about the car I purchased... but I don't think that Amazon sells cars.

        You could try eBay - I'm not sure if they do cars big_smile

          I think the postage s somewhat prohibitive.

          ebay sells cars but I don't know if the affiliate program gives you a cut of car sales you would have to look that up.

    If you are writing about things that you really know about, wouldn't you know what products to write about too?

    1. lobobrandon profile image83
      lobobrandonposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      I know about lots relache but they're already flooded with other reviews and hence I won't rank well. That's the prob!!

        Yep, you've discovered the reason most here don't want to share any info about their successful niches.  I've been burned more than once when doing so.  Good luck on finding a good niche or subject to write on.  As I said, it's the most difficult part of getting traffic and sales.  smile

    I've had very little success choosing a product and pushing it.  On the other hand, I've written a few reviews or other informative hubs primarily about products, and these do quite well.

    Find a product, brand or type of product you want to write about, that you know about, and write.  Throw in some Amazon capsules.  I love tools and am knowledgeable about many of them - I've written many hubs on tools, stuck in a few amazon capsules and sold lots of tools.  But the thrust is on the hub, not on selling - that is secondary for me.  I haven't mastered the strictly sales oriented hub yet.

      I'll do that wilderness - I thought of that yesterday itself I'll just have to find my niche

      1. wilderness profile image96
        wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Yep - for me, that's best.  I know others can write great sales copy and accomplish something, but I've never mastered not only getting the traffic to a non-informative hub but actually writing the copy.  I'm not a salesman.

          Haha big_smile I think I just found something, I'll try writing a product review and also a general hub - I'll give it a shot.

            That's the only way you'll ever find out, too.  Give it a shot and see if it works.

              I just published one hub last night big_smile If you can - check it out big_smile
              Thanks for all the help

                For my taste, there is too much underlining, italics and bolding.  But that's just me.

                I've never thought of using amazon capsules as you did - one on each hood fan (I assume that's the hub) and a second group of them at the bottom.  It will be interesting to see if it's effective. 

                Overall, a good sales hub, I think.

                  Hi Wilderness - That's great to hear. I'll remove the underlining I guess - it's a bit too much in the beginning smile Thanks for the suggestion. And It's thanks to Mark Knowles hub design  that I've done it that way. I don't remember who exactly had a hub on the top 3 hubs and I just imitated it from there.

                  Btw wildy I think the amazon at the bottom doesn't seem good but if at all someone doesn't decide to buy that's what they see at the end so it doesn't matter much if they think I over did it - a win-nothing to lose (not win-win) situation I guess (nothing to lose at least).

                    lobobrandonposted 5 years ago in reply to this

                    I just checked through the hub again. The amazon products at the bottom don't look odd (they seem ok to me atleast). So I guess I'll just test them out.

                    I read somewhere and it's obvious that people first go through all the products and then buy, so they may choose the first product and not scroll back up instead quit and buy it from another site. But, if they're reminded that they could do so from the page they were already on they would surely do that.

    Try different things for a hub and discover what works for you.

    Tell a funny story about a product with the product displayed form Amazon at the end of the hub.

    Write a sales hub about the benefits and features of product X, Y & Z.

    Write a single product review highlighting the pro's and con's.

    Maybe even write a feature set where you have several hubs explaining about a singular product. (simply because there is much detail, or skill sets or experience that is needed to be shared with the reader)
