I just got a message from Amazon about how I haven't made any money from them yet and what I should do about it. They are saying I should add an Astore and widget and all this stuff...is it really necessary? I feel like my hubs are drowning in advertising sometimes, but I don't want to miss out on any money-making opportunities. So what to do? Any ideas out there?
An A-store is for your own website. In my experience, it's very hard to make money from Amazon. I've had an account there for 3 years and I've made less than $10. You just have to try and have your Amazon products relate directly to your hub, that way people may buy. I sold replacement feathers on a DaBird hub I wrote and I sold a book through a book review hub I wrote.
I've had more luck with Ebay...but there I've made only about $10 in 15 months.
The astore is not an option on Hubpages.
Amazon can be a good moneymaker on Hubpages (I get more from Amazon than Adsense) but the way many Hubbers do it by just throwing in a few links on related books won't do much.
One good strategy that works is to write a how to article that compares a couple of different ways of doing things, and put up Amazon items that help get the job done.
Thanks a lot for the info. I know that getting rich through amazon or adsense is pretty much a dim dream, but I just don't want to NOT do something that may actually work for me. Thanks again,
Hi, Thanks for your info. Why is an astore not optional for hubpages?
Hi I am kind of new at hubpages too, what I did was but the widgets and astore on my blog acct. I have made about 10.00 in the last two weeks. The astore was easy to do
I make good income from Amazon - about $10-20 a month. I agree you have to focus the products you display very carefully

Are these easy to setup can anyone run one?Have been thinking of doing this but not sure how hard they are to organise. Do you have to have your own website to start or can you do them on a blog. Thanks

I have been attempting to use Amazon, but so far with little luck. Can anyone tell me whether using Amazon AStore's are worth the time and effort to set up, or is it best to just use the Amazon capsule?

Has anyone had any Amazon sales in the last few days? I know figures aren't finalized, but I just wanted to see what others are experiencing. Thanks for your input.

I have created an astore through Amazon, but have received very few hits (even to view the merchandise). What can I do to improve this performance, if anything?
