First Amazon Sale

    I was quite surprised to see my first Amazon sale!  I'd quit looking everyday as it gets you kinda down when day after day nothing happens, even though I know it can take time.
    It was a very nice surprise. 
    I didn't start Hubpages to write product sales pages, but we could sure use the extra dollars, and they really are fun to write - guess I'll just mix it up with informational, creative, and sales.

    When I first started, I actually made more from Amazon in the first few months, but I noticed that as I wrote more hubs, my adsense really started to grow.  With the start of the holidays in October, Amazon earnings has really grown for me.  Most likely it will go down again in January.

    Eek, going down from one sale will hurt smile
    Well, I've only been here a couple months - lots of room for growth.

    Don't worry, your hubs are relatively new, they're less than two months old. As your hubs age and google finds your hubs, you'll start getting more clicks.  But continue to write and having a good mix of hubs is very strategic.

    Congratulations.  It's quite a buzz isn't it?
    Actually I gave up looking for a long while and then one day I clicked on the link and I had four sales and they'd already been delivered!  I was that excited, you'd think I'd won the lottery. lol

    I got my first Amazon Check ($11) just a couple of weeks ago.  My wife and I had a big celebration!  But like you, I started doing a lot of product pages a month ago, and since then, sales have improved a lot.  You're right about both... the extra money is nice, and if you write about things you enjoy, product pages can still be fun.  I like toys and gadgets, so I pick things to write about that appeal to me.
    Good luck, and keep writing!

    Congrats!! So glad I found this thread because about an hour ago I JUST signed up for Amazon... I had been very hesitant, and had only been sticking with Adsense, but I figured why not give it a try!
    So we'll have to wait and see...
    Good for you, though!
