I'm just wondering for those that get sells on Amazon.

    Do you put Amazon on all your hubs or on hubs that just promote a product.  Do you write reviews how do you get sales?

    Out of my 'information' hubs, I'm lucky to get 1 sale out of 10,000 views.

    On my 'product, sale, or review' hubs I generally get at least 1 sale per 500 views, on some, I can average 1 sale per 50 views at the right time of year.

      I agree with QM.. my informational hubs have not fetched me more than $5  from the time I have been here... LOL ..but the truth is even my product hubs have not fetched me anything..so I gave up on Amazon sales... I can never get my sales pitch right smile

        The reason I even asked the question is because a while back  people where so upset about not being able to earn from Amazon and they where saying how much money they where making.  They where basicly saying a big part of their income was from Amazon so I went and looked at a lot of their hubs but couldn't determine what they where doing vs what I am doing.

          I remember that very well .. I also looked up their hubs and didn't find them any different... maybe we just don't know how to do it... maybe Izzy has a cue.. I'll follow the lead.. one more try perhaps smile

    I do both. I make sure that my Amazon ads are completely relevant to the hub. For example, I get lots of sales of Fred Astaire videos from a hub that is just talking about their movies. I also have a sales hub on gifts for cats that also gets sales.

    That being said, I don't sell that much on Amazon.

      Gifts for Cats!
      The things people spend their money on.  I just don't get it!  I have hubs out there that get lots of traffic never earn a cent on.  I have hubs that are on page 1 of Google that get way less traffic but bring a steady income.

    If you are want Amazon sales you have to write hubs for people that are ready to buy.
    It is very seldom a casual browser will decide to buy a product there are then, just by reading your fantastic and persuasive hub!
    They have made their minds up already what they want, you are just giving them the final shove, so to make sales, write hubs aimed at this group.

      I never been much of a sales person.  When I first started writing I join some affiliate programs never had any luck than my girlfriend made a purchase with her credit card for a little over $80 I never got credit so I just assumed affiliate pro. where scams so I stopped I don't even put referral links up any more.  Like here I have over a 1000 referrals but not one person signed up thats hard to believe.
