At one time I got sales from eBay, but now I'm confused. When I try and find a product on eBay that would be appropriate for my Hub, I get a confusing message. Can't remember the exact words, but something to the effect the product must be a "buy it now".
Am I doing something wrong?
You can only select Buy It Now Items as opposed to items which are on an e-Bay Auction.
That's what I thought, but by the time the Hub is read, that item will be gone, right?
I notice HP rotates the eBay items. If what you post is gone, they'll find another similar item and put it in it's place.
Yes, you are correct though I do recall that it was done this way to make it easier for us to make sales.
For Ebay the best solution is to get rid of all of their capsules. Maybe then they will start paying for clicks like they used to. As for Amazon, providing links to useful products that fall within the topic of your hub is best.
Sorry Mary615 I have to address this on your thread . Hopefully this can benefit both of us.
Sallybea how much luck are you have with amazon and ebay? How many sales are you having in days? or weeks? or months?
Please suggest some tips; it would be helpful.
I think one has to think like a reader when you add Amazon or e-Bay capsules. I write wet tutorials and in every case the reader might require an item to complete the Tutorial on their own. All of these items can be purchased from e-Bay or Amazon. I buy these items myself for my own use. I can make it easier for readers by giving them a link to an identical which I used myself to complete the tutorial. One cannot just randomly add capsules which have nothing to do with the writing and expect to make sales The number of sales varies from month to month and so too does the revenue because the commission on an expensive item will be more from an expensive item than an inexpensive one. The key thing I believe is to engage with the reader. The subject should be interesting enough to make them either want to learn more about it or make them feel that the product used is something they really do want to try or have to use. Having said that, it is surprising how readers will purchase something completely unrelated to the subject, by just following the link and seeing something else they want to buy.
Thanks Sallybea for answer.
How do you get your readership up? Whats your formula to success?
Use twitter and Pin Hubs on Pinterest, apart from that I don't do much else. I love Pinterest.
Cool! How do you promote on twitter ? Is there a certain way you write things because sometimes the post can sound spammish. How do you incorporate your info on Pinterest? Can I see your Pinterest?

I never get sales from these anymore. Should I just delete them so that it makes the adsense ads more enticing?

I'm trying to expunge my account of all EBay products since I just realized they don't pay a commission and instead only pay pennies on large sales. Is there an easier method than going hub to hub and deleting them? ...
