      Try to write articles about products that must be ordered online. It works. Like personalized products or products from overseas, etc.. It has worked for me.

    This might be off topic, but does anyone here use Lulu.com?

    thanks.

    Congratulations! I'm just starting to incorporate Amazon into my hubs.  (I've been an affiliate for about 2 weeks, but just wrote my first hub a few days ago that really had an appropriate place for them.)  I'm hoping to put some in the hub I'm currently working on.  Always nice to read a success story!

    I am having great success with the Hallmark recordable story book, The Night Before Christmas. I saw the commercial on tv and thought I would write a hub. I notice I am getting front page of google search. The traffic for this hub has been great. I have now sold 4 of these books. My advice to those just starting is try and find a hot product, especially if it requires ordering and write a hub.

    Hallmark is doing the advertising for me in a way!
