well got first sales for month of october..had got 10 sales in august..would prefer frequent sales then sporadic but still wanted to share this...
Pisean I know how you feel. Congrats on your sale! I got two amazon sales this week, and was jumping for joy. I only made $3.00 collectively, but was happy to get a sale.
well done, still awaiting my first sale but clicks are up this month which is most encouraging, indeed adesense has surpassed last month already by 20 per cent so on a roll ( not getting excited as still discussing pence not pounds)
As long as you can see pence there is always the potential for pounds!
Congratulations pisean, hope the Amazon sales now continue to roll in regularly
Congrats pisean. You're on a roll. Isn't it great to share nice news?
Well done - Pisean and it is encouraging to hear that Amazon is working for Hubbers.
At the moment, I feel like giving up on the Amazon front - I am finding the clicks are high and the sales low. I am in negative (- cents) for this month as an item from last month was returned and I have only sold one thing this month.
The Amazon clicks are high compared to when I started using the Amazon capsules on hubs. Now I am left wondering when they go from my pages to Amazon:
do they just look - I think of it as a type window shopping
are the sales in HubPages percentage of time
or do they not buy that day
it is still a bit of a puzzle to me how to make it work.
@2uesday Dont give up on Amazon it will work for you. I was a non-believer when it came to selling amazon products. I had been writing here on hp 2 years and I now do believe that it is possible to get those sales on Amazon.
Before writing on HP I had the Amazon store front and nothing, nada.
Reading the encouraging comments from other hubbers helped me ALOT. You have to hang in there, and stick with it.
It helps if your ads are directly related to you hub topic. I have made sales thought book review hubs and specifically targeted "sales" hubs. Of course, most of the sales are unrelated to what the hub is about strangely enough. People click through on your hub and keep on browsing on Amazon until something catches their eye.
Of course, my Amazon sales are way lower than a lot of people. I have earned about $75 in about 5 years as an Amazon affiliate. There are some hubs that offer suggestions about getting Amazon sales.
I've started having a small amount of success on Amazon - this month, I've so far made just under $20 which is my best month yet.
But that's only because I've got just over 40 Amazon-oriented sales hubs - I think you really do need at least that number (preferably several times that number) to make a significant income off Amazon.
And by sales hubs I mean hubs that can basically be summarised as "Widget donglers are great because [insert reasons why they're great, and why the reader should buy them]. And you can buy widget donglers online at Amazon.com. I've listed some great widget donglers below, in the capsules on the right. See what you think." Followed by several paragraphs describing each widget dongler in turn, with a capsule showing that particular widget dongler right next to it.
I'm yet to experience the taste of an amazon sale. Very nice to read about the success of other hubbers.

Hi,I don't understand what is happening here. My Amazon sales were doing okay and they shouldn't have stopped dead because the product has nothing to do with the Christmas or holiday season.Is anyone else experiencing this?

A few weeks ago my earning percentage dropped from about 10% to about 5%. Is it just me?

Now that we are 'all in this together' so to speak with the new HP Amazon program, it is in all our interests to get as many sales as possible, as we will all benefit.I'll start.If your hub is all about cleaning carpets, for example, a hub entitled How to Clean Carpets may encompass all if your hub...

I am realizing that sometimes up to 2/3 of my audience is using smartphones to access my hubs, yet 90% of my Amazon sales are from desktop/laptop/tablet users. This makes me think that a lot of smartphone users are simply not scrolling to the right or perhaps they are not motivated to spend because...

All of my earnings across all platforms are up 8.92% from October 2010. Just considering HP, I'm up 5.1%. This is my second January on HP and my earnings have increased from January to January by 411%. This is how I judge whether or not my business is growing. On new platforms I expect to see...
