People are probably tired of my plan ahead strategy (or nagging), but I just read an article where Amazon announced that Dec 14 was its peak holiday shopping day - so I've marked it on my 2010 calendar. As well as Sept 14, 2010, which is when I want all my Christmas specific content up and running - which means that I'll have solidified my 2010 Christmas product strategy by July 1 and have begun working on it while still wearing my flip-flops.
great! i will remember that. and i for one am certainly not tired of anything you have to say.
Just checked Amazon, I've earned just under $15 this month That is actually good for me...
that is good, actually. i earned 12.50 this month, which tells me i am at least on the right track. once the holidays are over i can really get going on this again.
Total Items Shipped 14 $213.85 $12.50
Total Items Returned 0 $0.00 $0.00
If next year follows the same pattern as this year, in 2010 Amazon's biggest shopping day will more likely be Dec 13th.
Your post is an excellent example of why it's important to keep on top of what companies that you support through affiliate marketing are doing or what information they are sharing.
I believe it's thinking like that that helped coin the phrase "staying one step ahead of the game"
I had such a successful Christmas at Amazon (closing in on 300 dollars earned with a relatively small number of Hubs), I plan to push extra hard next Christmas.
This month I have more than doubled any previous month on Amazon. I'm making a note too. Nelle, we all love ya!
Thanks for the heads-up Nelle. Will bookmark this thread so that I can read it next year .
Nelle you are a gem. True IM'ers have a solid stratgey with dates marked and everything planned and that is what makes the difference . I am sure you will reach your goal of $5000 in one month in December.
Great advice and I am going to work on my plan and strategising too

Recently, I, as well as hundreds of thousands of others was required by Amazon to submit a declaration that none of the sites I work for or on (in which I use my Amazon i.d.) specifically target children under 13 years of age. I did this, of course, because, hey, I like to comply with people...
