First purchase made by a customer on Sunday 25th, found out today Tuesday 27th (early am, my time in Australia).
Been using Amazon on various sites for 15 months and finally had my first customer purchase through this very website through one of my Hubs.
Thankyou Very Much HubPages.
Here is to many more happy happy customers
For the first 12 months I was here, I had no Amazon sales. Then I started seriously watching Nelle, Maddie Ruud, and so many more that I'd have to make a big list. I've learned from all. And now the affiliate sales are starting to happen.
My hat's off to you...you got your first sale after two months. I had to wait for 12.
Hopefully many more to come in the future too.
Lots of it plays part in reading through almost all the hubs of the veteran Hubbers around these here woods. There success is also our success.
I have learnt more about working online here in 3 months than I have in the 12 months previous to that. But the learning, trying, tweaking and doing of it never stops
A big congratulations to you! You are discovering the Hubpages Magic. If you put in the work, the money does come. And that isn't necessarily the case elsewhere.
I have always been of the belief that with working online, it is like building a house. The foundation takes a veeeeeeeeeeeery long time to come about, and to external observers, seems like it is taking forever.
Yet once that foundation is set, and the house is finally coming into being built, all that time, blood, sweat (lots of swearing ) and tears, starts to finally pay off.
It's a great return for all that time spent, the rewards do come, just takes the time it needs to come to fruition.
Yes, I am becoming quite convinced there is a certain magic to HubPages.
Way to go, Jase! You beat me out on this one - I'm still waiting for my first Amazon sale. I've had a few clicks, but no sales yet - good to hear that it's working for someone. I'll just have to wait, I guess.
Congrats Jase, getting in the swing of things with Amazon, huh.. Too many more sales to come..
congrats, kangaroo! feels good to get that first one, good work!
Hey thanks everyone,
Yes, reading, studying, applying and writing different types of 'articles' as such, is what I do until I hit what works for me. Then rinse and repeat, followed up by looking at how these areas can be constantly improved.
Also its a little hard to just let things lie for a while so they slow boil, as in let Google traffic do it's stuff to bring people to the work. But am learning that too.

I checked my amazon clicks this morning and saw my first Amazon sale after 15 months. Persistence and patience finally paid off. It really feel good to see dollar signs in my report for a change. Also I have a few orders that I am still waiting to see the dollar amount. It really caught me...

It took three months, I guess that's not bad! Now if I could just meet that threshold every month I'd be thrilled.Today's my wedding anniversary, so this is a nice "gift"!

Took a while, but someone bought something and I got just under a dollar for it, now for another 50 years to make enough for a mars bar when I can finally get at it lol

At last! I have finally had my first Amazon sale. It took 384 click but I'm finally there, my conversion rate is now 0.26! Yay.Weirdly the first item I sold has nothing to do with the items I have put on my Hubs, but I'm not complaining. A sale is a sale.
