Whenever I'm in the market to buy something; especially something expensive, (which is often), I try and search for the product from Hubbers who are my fans.
1. It'll improve the Hubpages/Amazon/Ebay Affiliate relationship maybe?
2. I get to read about the product while purchasing.
3. Most of the people who follow me on HP probably really need the money.
Does anyone else buy products from their follower's hubs?
Nope, I would if I lived in America or Canada!
Thankfully, we have our own Amazon. My gf spent a year in America, if I were on Hubpages at the time, then I would have been buying quite a few gifts through peoples hubs.
I also bought a laptop through Amazon.com once, to collect when I visited her and save money. Only it didn't really save me any money, because it was a pile of crap and I was thousands of miles away... meaning that I couldn't take advantage of the warranty!
I do the same thing - with things I like to get in Asia. I'm on Amazon & Ebay alot so I end up getting things from Hubbers often. I get lots of books, bags, clothes and jewelry. Oh and I recently bought an Armani watch from someone here but I forgot who...
A HP Marketplace would be amazing! Facebook has one.
Even better would be a no reserve auction site with the ability to monetize your listings using Amazon and AdSense ads!
Auction listings can go seriously viral! I would be more tempted to take a risk selling collectible and expensive items if you could make a little in Ad Rev too!
You know, that sounds like a potential big time money making site. I definitely know that I don't have that kind of programming saavy though. I'd have to find someone who knows how to write some complicated code, especially for an auction-style site. Unless, a software program for that kind of thing already exists..
Lol, you are talking about major wonga.
That is the type of project which would need a collective of programers, who subsequently build something incredible, and then seek seven figure capital investment.
I suspect that one day somebody will seek to challenge the dominance of eBay, but they would have to be brave people.
Yena, you are a very nice person. Just do what you think is right. I think I'll do what you're doing. Honestly, it never occurred to me. On the other hand, I don't buy a lot of stuff from Amazon as I can get a lot of stuff near me cheap or on sale.
It's fine, and I think more hubbers should actually be doing it and help each other out.
Yea, that would be amazing for our amazon earnings, lol! I should create a website that features a HP "marketplace" and shows which hubs selling which items!!
Hmm, I wonder how much time/effort it would take to create something like that. I'll look into it!
I have bought a few things from other review sites where I found helpful info about the product. I think it is always nice to help someone when you could as long as we can afford it.
Yenajeon, you seem like a nice person, when you have these type of lovely thought, you are more than welcome to come to my hubs. :-) Take care.
Much blessing and passing on good feelings around.
I like what you do!
Unfortunately, the postage from Amazon.com is prohibitive for those who live in Europe. But I know that hubbers have bought from me when I've made a sale within hours of publishing (before I got any google traffic).
So, can I just thank them from the bottom of my heart and say I would do the same for you, if I could.
OMG Gateway is awful. I like Asus for desktops and Sony/Macs for laptops.
I will never buy one again, it only took 2 weeks to start overheating.
Shame, because it actually had great specs, I later discovered that the graphics chip was designed for desktop use only!
Never again will I buy one. I really like Sony Viao and Toshiba laptops, and HP desktops. I have never used an Asus, I may get an Asus netbook soon.
I love my slimline HP Pavilion desktop, didn't cost me much at all but is super fast and ultra reliable.
(THERE ARE NO AFFILIATE CODES IN THE LINKS BELOW)
This is it: http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-Sliml … pd_cp_pc_1
Only I upgraded the RAM to 8GB and it came in package with one of these bad boys: http://www.amazon.com/HP-2509m-25-Inch- … amp;sr=8-2
And I can't deal with wires, so bought a decent wireless mouse and wireless keyboard, before spilling coffee over the keyboard... so I am now using the rubbish one again!
That will do me for another 18 months I hope, had it for a year, I wear mine out pretty quickly.
I have a HP Pavillion, I originally bought it solely because it was one of the few cheaper laptops with a numpad. My first one dieda death thanks to overheating (They run hot on the graphics card too) but thats why I bought a notebook cooler (And got in to that niche).
I have a Pavillion desktop, not a Pavillion laptop. Never owned an HP laptop to be honest, any good?
Due to the tracker system there is a chance your own code could be in the affiliate link. This is against the Adsense TOS which is why people are not encouraged to do others a favour by clicking on their adsense ads.
The same could happen for Amazon, I am not up to date on their TOS but i would be surprised if you were allowed to purchase items via your own affiliate link.
There have been some items I could have purchased from other Hubbers, but the postage to Australia more than cancelled out any savings from buying through Amazon.
That is so nice of you to do that. I haven't bought anything yet but I will follow your idea and help my friends if I need something I want to buy.

It seems hard to see that anyone actually makes any money here. Can someone provide me a hub that I can look up on the internet outside of hubpages & see it? Before I commit any more time to this, I want to know if it will be worth my while. Thanks.

Maddie, I hope you are reading this, or whomever that can help.I have posted almost 150 Hubs...and if you are reading this, you know that takes time, energy, and effort. I had these hubs split among a few accounts. One day all my accounts were no longer posted, and I could not post...

I'm trying to expunge my account of all EBay products since I just realized they don't pay a commission and instead only pay pennies on large sales. Is there an easier method than going hub to hub and deleting them? ...
