.24 cents! Not impressive, but now I know that the amazon capsules can work for me. It was for a book, entitled: "Hooking Up". lol
Anyways,after 209 amazon views, it's nice to finally earn something!
I'm assuming it'll be quite sometime before I reach the $10.00 threshold at this rate.
At least you earned something. I am still on a big ZERO. Congratulations!
Well done, I gave up and took mine down, maybe I should put them back !
At least keep your eBay one up if you took it down. I have made about $10 with it so far.
Too bad for me Ebay won't get back to me. I've waited and waited, I'm getting frustrated. Another hubber is having the same problem. Ugh.
A thousand mile journey begins with the first step... ;-)
I've got some amazon capsules on my posts - here's to making some money at this!
Well something is always better than nothing. lol. But keep working at it, you'll get to that 10.00 threshold.
Congrats on your first sale!
My philosophy has always been if I know how to make $1, then I know how to make $100. Just have to do more of what works for you.
Congratulations, success however small you feel it is is a great cause for celebration....
Congrats on the sale! Amazon can be difficult to make money with because of their short term cookie. It would be much better for affiliates if they had a 14 day or longer cookie, but then they'd have to pay out more commissions!
There is a lot of controversy about the Amazon cookie.
Some believe that it's 24 hours for everything.
Others believe it's 24 hours for items once they are put in the shopping cart. (If a person puts something in a shopping cart, leaves to look at another site and then comes back.)
Others believe that it's a one session cookie. Meaning someone clicks through to the Amazon site from your hub and then shops. Leaves Amazon. Your cookie evaporates.
Their TOS is vague and conflicting. If you email Amazon Associates for clarification. The clarification just quotes the vague TOS and wishes you a good day.
There's always an ongoing discussion about this at the Amazon discussion board.
Congrats..!I made my first .40cents a couple of days back.When I just checked casually ,I saw this and nearly fell off my chair.I have become greedy now and keep on checking every 2 hrs..no luck..lol!I am yet to apply for adsense as I wanted to get some traffic from google so that they do not refuse me!
If you sign up for a blogspot blog, I'm pretty sure you'll get approved almost instantaneously. Just post a few blogs before you apply. That is how I got my adsense account. Good luck!
Congrats. Has anyone tailored their hubs specifically for amazon sales?
I do have a handful that are for amazon sales, one of which is my hub on electric toothbrushes.
You are welcome to take a peek at it to get an example of how to formulate an amazon-biased hub, but before you get giddy, I should tell you I've received $0 amazon sales to date.
The hub does do well with adsense, though.
There are some other users who really do well with their hubs that are created for amazon sales. Personally, I took that amazon-geared hub and changed my strategy into an adsense-geared hub. The comparison/product review hubs do pretty well with adsense, wink wink.
I'm starting to work toward exactly this end.
Seeing as I don't have Adsense or even eBay at this point, it seems targeting Azon is the only way to potentially cash in on Hubs' rankability with Google.
At this point now, I've made 6.00 and some change through 3 separate transactions. It's funny, because the Hubs that I've 'designed' for amazon, haven't earned me a dime yet, from amazon at least. On some articles, actually almost all, I will include a few relevant products.
The last few I've done on pet items will hopefully get me some sales in the near future!
Thanks guys for all the kinds words!
I'm excited to say that I just checked my Amazon and saw 25, YES 25 products sold! LOL
They are all Amazon On Demand Videos and sold for $1.99 each. Amazon pays 10% referrals for those. My commission was $5.00 for 25 episodes.
It's hilarious because I don't even feature any of these videos/episdoes on my hubs. Someone must've clicked through another item and found their way to Amazon's Video on Demand.
So, definitely use Amazon if you can, you never know what people will buy!
I wish there was a way to track what hub people were on to discover the items...if anyone knows this - please let me know! All I can see is the items ordered.
Congratulations, is great to know that the capsuals work as a newbee, anywaywon't be long before you hit that $10 threshold now.
Good luck with future sales and hubs
Thanks! On a side note, I love your picture! It looks like one of my old cats, when he was a kitten (and skinny lol).
I think that adding amazon hubs also adds a more dynamic element to your hubs. The pictures and items are something for the visitors to look at and perhaps be inspired by (or be inspired to buy). I use amazon in almost every hub, almost like I use images to add some color!
I agree. If amazon ads are relevant and tasteful, it adds (in my opinion) to the overall quality of the hub.
Definitely...one thing I hate to see though is that some will just use a keyword and not bother to look at the products displayed causing products to display that yes, match that keyword, but are completely irrelevant. I usually hand pick items if I can't find at least 4, quality related items for my particular keyword.
Again, agreed. I almost always hand pick items that match the hub. If I don't, then who knows what will display there, ya know? It's better to have relevant products showing on a targetted hub like that.
now i need to take the Tracking ID and put it in hubpages Affiliate Settings? how long it takes it to appear in my hubs?
hmmm...not sure on that one! I would say no longer than 24 hours. Who knows, it might be instantaneous.
I was lucky and made 9.00 one time from amazon I have all so added an astore to my blog at blogspot
Wow that's great! Congrats! Hope you'll have more and wish I will have some too. lol!
Congrats. The first one is the hardest. Took me much longer to make that first sale, but now am close to the $100 payout just a few weeks later. Some of the sales make sense to what my articles are, some make no sense whatsoever. Just depends on the traffic I think.

Hi hubbers, I made my very first Amazon sale two days ago and you can guess how I feel right now. I know there are hubbers who make several sales a day, but this is a very big milestone to me worth sharing. This is a big boost on earnings and now I have all the reasons to get back hubbing. Thank...

So, ok it's only a couple of bucks, but so what...I'm still really new at this! It was from my women's plus size pajamas hub. I guess every beginner feels like this when they make their first sale, like wow I guess I did something right! BTW - thanks to darkside, relache, sunforged, and many other...

I almost fell off my chair! I had come to accept that it was never going to happen, but it really has, I've just made $ .68! Now, I'm excited. I'm hoping to double my earnings in '09!Wow! The same week that I hit my first $100 in AdSense, too. It's been a good week.

I've had plenty of clicks through Amazon, but no sales until now. I've even had Adsense clicks on my product hubs, but no Amazon sales.Anyway, I earned $1 on Amazon from a pair of shoes that somebody purchased! As you can see, I'm pretty excited! Just wanted to share. I was...

At last! I have finally had my first Amazon sale. It took 384 click but I'm finally there, my conversion rate is now 0.26! Yay.Weirdly the first item I sold has nothing to do with the items I have put on my Hubs, but I'm not complaining. A sale is a sale.
