Much to my surprise, I've made my first Amazon sale just after the changes to Squidoo style ads. My hubs are not really aimed at sales, and only generate a few clicks. Following the change to Squidoo style ads this week, there was a click, which has now resulted in a sale. The commission is a nice boost, and very welcome.
Like many people, I didn't think the change would be a good thing. One ad had to be removed as the new format distorted the product image. But hey, two days later, the balance on my account was up. On investigation, I found a product had been shipped.
Let's hope this is the start of a new trend for everyone. Hats off to HP for trying something new.
