    Nelle, as the resident Amazon expert, I am well on my way to de-throning you now that after 7 months and over 200 Amazon capsule clicks, I finally got my first order and credit of $0.94. (LOL)

    Hope you have a good New Year's.

      Finally you did it! big_smile

      Congratulations anyway. I am sure from onwards, you are going to get more frequent sales.

      It is more like you are a disciple of a God (LOL)

      I am an affiliate marketer and for some reason Amazon just doesnt work well for me.

      Nelle has it down to a science.  I had great results with ebay when I was an affiliate but Amazon seems to be a road block for me.

      I think we can all learn from Nelle when it comes to Amazon.

        I thought about that analogy, but didn't want the thread to degenerate into an existence of God debate.  LOL

    Congrats kidgas.

    i too am a fan of nelle. i have learned so much from reading her articles.

    i had a great december on amazon with just under $400.00 earned. mostly thanks to following nelle and learning from her.

    good luck in the future!! wish you all the best.

      That's great!  Maybe I will have to do some of that, too.  I am just not the sales type, though, which makes it quite difficult.

      Wayne you just made my day! I'm so glad that my work has been helpful. I bet you'll easily double that next December if you keep making more hubs and working hard at HubPages. This is really one of the best places I've found to make $$$. I can't wait for more folks like you to post that you've had your first $1,000 month at HubPages.

    congrats!!!! I love to see what people buy on Amazon (I get some really ODD items that perplex me because I don't put them in capsules...) I always wonder what hub that people go through to buy some of the weird stuff!! Either way, the commission is a nice supplement to Adsense.

    My favorite entertaining products that sell every once in a while are called 'Poop Freeze Spray'. The other day, someone purchased the matching bag that says the company's name on it. (I'm wondering if it was a gag gift!) lol

    So I've got 5 1/2 months and 150 more clicks to go. Good to know.  Like reality testing.  Thanks Kidgas.
