    Thanks guys!!  This was my second largest affiliate sale ever.  My largest was a $20,000 piece of construction equipment that earned me about $120+. That was off one of my Squidoo lenses. wink

    Hey! Do you know anyone who wants to buy some construction equipment and is getting engaged? The best I ever got was $14 for selling rodent deterrents.

    Thanks again guys!  It is sales like this that inspire me to keep working hard.  The reason I shared this sale here is because this could happen to anyone of us.  So, hopefully you found some inspiration reading about it.  The fact is I didn't do anything special, didn't do anything that you guys aren't doing.  I just got lucky.  Maybe next time, the big sale will be yours! smile

    Way to go Janet - that is great. I love big bonuses like that. I had a big one from Squidoo not too long ago when someone purchased a $600 slide - it is always nice to see big numbers and it is true it can happen to anyone.

    Could you post the hubpage that featured the $1,000 ring sale.  I am wondering how you incorporated the revenue capsule with your content.

    1. Janet21 profile image79
      Janet21posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I was not promoting this ring on any of my hubs.  It was just a random item purchased once someone clicked through one of my amazon links.  I don't know which hub initiated the sale.  I just know the sale originated from hubpages.

    Wow.. just wow.. and just what I needed to hear.. Haven't made any rev on Hubpages since I signed up, primarily cause only have an Amazon account and was kinda in the doldrums.. This has so made me hopeful.. as did Mark Knowles advice in a separate forum..
    Congrats and wishing you great sales in the future.. :-)

    I love checking out what else people buy via Amazon if they use my affiliate link; it surprises me a lot.

    That's awesome! Funny thing: I checked my amazon sales today too (randomly), and I sold an LCD TV for about a $44 profit! Like you, it's not an item I featured...but I guess my 24 hr affiliate code stuck with them as they shopped around amazon.

    I removed all my amazon and eBay ads cause I'm not making any cent from it.

    You sure this isn't a BS?

      This was the same ring, someone just added a new post to my original thread. wink

      What do you mean by that? hmm

    Well done Janet!  My first sale on Amazon was a wood burning stove worth several hundred dollars - I made around $50.  Since then I have only sold a book!

    Yet to earn on Ebay ( been advertising with them for around 6 months).

    I wonder if Amazon sells banks, ships or big corporations? smile

    how on earth you do that?? PLEASE TELL !!!! i am interested in working with amazon and could do with some tips.

  41. ThePartyAnimal profile image80
    ThePartyAnimalposted 8 years ago

    It happens - if someone clicks off one of your links and goes shopping you still get the commission even if it is not what you referred. Happens to me all the time - here and on my Squidoo pages. On one of my toy lenses on Squidoo - some one bought a drive shaft for a car from Ebay. You will see it happen I am sure.

    I had a really big order on my Amazon account once (a Karaoke machine or something). It's not a product I ever promoted. I was really pleased... until the purchaser returned the item and my commission got removed from my account!!!!
