    After 8 months but I only have 7 hubs geared at amazon products so I am very happy. Not a lot of money but it sure was nice to see.

    Congrats, Ohma - that's good to hear.  I've written a few hubs for Amazon (just finished one, in fact) but haven't had a sale yet.  A few clicks, but no sales.  Like yours, they'll come - it just takes time, and maybe learning how to write them better and pick better products.

    That's great news.  Good for you!

    Congrats!  A lot of people have found that once you get one, they start rolling in more frequently.  Maybe you can see what product it was, go back and check out the hub it was on, and learn better what to do next time.

    Wilderness I think alot of it is timing. It was a back to school hub that my sale was from and it has been out for about a month so following that I think if we learn to work in anticipation of the event say maybe 2 months or so we should see better results.

      Good choice!  That's one I hadn't thought of and I should have - I've noticed the products on store shelves and thought of my grandchildren.  I'm slowly learning to think about possible hubs everywhere I go and everything I do, but I still miss most of them.  Gotta get better at it!

    Congrats - you know what they say - dribs and drabs....anything helps, eh?  The kicker though is that you have to wait for it to reach a certain level before they pay out - but that's okay.  In my case, I think it would have been a whopping $0.11 the first sale and THAT would have been embarrassing to say the least!

    Here's to many, many more $$$!!

    Well done - I am starting to make a few sales each month now.  My main problem is I can't seem to get many clicks and if I get them they are like £0.03 with adsense!

      Well done Ohma, I have just published my first commercial Hub aimed at selling Amazon products so this is encouraging.  I plan doing a lot more so let's hope we are both very successful lol

      Congratulations on your first Amazon sale!

    Congrats Ohma.

    Of my roughly 20 amazon hubs, there is one that consistently makes sales every other day.

    Dont be scared to keep trying other products as its a hit and miss thing. You stumble on one every now and then that really cranks out the numbers.

    Great to hit the first hurdle. Congrats and keep on going.
