I just logged in to check my stats and saw that yesterday I sold 14 items! I believe that's the most I've ever sold in one day. I've gotten sort of used to daily sales, but usually it's only a couple of items, so this is really exciting for me - an 18% conversion!!
A few the of the items fall under electronics, so I'll only get 4%, but the overall quantity bumped me well into the 6.5% tier for everything else ... might just be my best month yet!
That's wonderful news. I am a newbie, been a member for several months but just started writing Hubs about 3 weeks ago. I made one sale in the first week on Amazon. it was a mere $3. I can't remember the last time I got that excited over $3. Congrats on your success!
Congrats on making a sale so quickly - sounds like you're catching on already! I'm not much of a "techer" as I feel I am constantly learning still myself. I usually go with my gut and whatever happens to inspire me, then I do a little keyword research and use that to help guide my writing. Everything I learned, I learned from other hubbers here - Ryankett, Sunforged, Nelle Hoxie, Darkside, Relach, Lissie - just to name a few. Read a lot of how to hubs and take it all in. Best of luck to you!
Thanks, Nelle! So far I'm now at 42 items sold for the month -I'm not sure if it's my best months so far or not because I did well last november/december but I don't remember the numbers. Regardless, I'm still way off the minimum for 7%, but a girl can dream, can't she?
thanks for putting your faith in me, but there are others who you can learn a lot more from, like the other commenters here - they are my heroes! A lot of my luck has been hard work and learning a lot from some great hubbers, and a lot of it has just been luck.
I hope one day to be making enough to be considered a salary of sorts - for now it's nice pocket change to buy a little extra something for my girls or to cover grocery budget overages!!
That's great Jen! Is that for this month alone? Way to go! I, too, can't wait until the holiday season gets rolling. I did pretty well last year considering I joined in July and had a fraction of the hubs then that I have now ... I'm crossing my fingers!
Thanks, Girly-girl! Of course, the day after the 14 sales - nothing. 4 sales the day after that and one yesterday ... comletely unpredictable! This has definitely been my best month yet though - it has even way surpassed last year's holiday season - yay! Hope it lasts!
When your sales become regular you will often notice patterns, days of the week, month and year all have significance. October and November are usually good build up months for me though, with December being a gold mine!
I haven't really taken the time to see if there's been any trends to date with my Amazon - I'll get around to it someday. I just hope this streak keeps going and gets even better around the holiday shopping months!
Am over the moon...proof that this Amazon thing really can work! I'd sold a couple of plants the week before (my first sales)- just cents in commission, but wow! a greenhouse!Did...em...someone here buy it?
Good day everybody... its vacation time once again and traffic will inevitably plummet. When traffic goes down the earnings will also act the same. Who among you has a positive earnings this month... Well I know a...
I check my Adsense twice a day and am continually refreshing till Amazon rolls over at the end of the day as well. I've finally reached the point where I might get a sale every second day or so, although no one seems to...
To this point I was only at about $2 in Amazon earnings. Today I woke up to check my adsense earnings, and wasn't even going to bother with my Amazon. It says 17 ordered items and only 9 shipped. Is that more good news...
I sold over $500 through my hubs yesterday (my commission is a LOT less, obviously). By far, it was my best day with eleven items sold. I usually sell two items per week on average, so this was a pleasant...
I'm still in the midst of my travels, but I'm staying at a friend's house where I've managed to get online and just wanted to post and say what a great time I had visiting the HubPages office last week. It was...
