I just got brave enough to do a product review and wrote a Hub. It's still too new to know if I'll sell any of these from Amazon. I tried this product, and absolutely wanted to share my good experience about it. If it does well, I'll do more.
Yep, you've discovered the reason most here don't want to share any info about their successful niches. I've been burned more than once when doing so. Good luck on finding a good niche or subject to write on. As I said, it's the most difficult part of getting traffic and sales.
I've had very little success choosing a product and pushing it. On the other hand, I've written a few reviews or other informative hubs primarily about products, and these do quite well.
Find a product, brand or type of product you want to write about, that you know about, and write. Throw in some Amazon capsules. I love tools and am knowledgeable about many of them - I've written many hubs on tools, stuck in a few amazon capsules and sold lots of tools. But the thrust is on the hub, not on selling - that is secondary for me. I haven't mastered the strictly sales oriented hub yet.
Yep - for me, that's best. I know others can write great sales copy and accomplish something, but I've never mastered not only getting the traffic to a non-informative hub but actually writing the copy. I'm not a salesman.
Hi Wilderness - That's great to hear. I'll remove the underlining I guess - it's a bit too much in the beginning Thanks for the suggestion. And It's thanks to Mark Knowles hub design that I've done it that way. I don't remember who exactly had a hub on the top 3 hubs and I just imitated it from there.
Btw wildy I think the amazon at the bottom doesn't seem good but if at all someone doesn't decide to buy that's what they see at the end so it doesn't matter much if they think I over did it - a win-nothing to lose (not win-win) situation I guess (nothing to lose at least).
I just checked through the hub again. The amazon products at the bottom don't look odd (they seem ok to me atleast). So I guess I'll just test them out.
I read somewhere and it's obvious that people first go through all the products and then buy, so they may choose the first product and not scroll back up instead quit and buy it from another site. But, if they're reminded that they could do so from the page they were already on they would surely do that.
I didn't think the links at the bottom looked odd at all, and what you're saying makes sense to me - I'd just never thought of doing it that way.. It could very well be a winner and it's certainly worth a try. I may use that general layout one day, in fact.
Try different things for a hub and discover what works for you.
Tell a funny story about a product with the product displayed form Amazon at the end of the hub.
Write a sales hub about the benefits and features of product X, Y & Z.
Write a single product review highlighting the pro's and con's.
Maybe even write a feature set where you have several hubs explaining about a singular product. (simply because there is much detail, or skill sets or experience that is needed to be shared with the reader)

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...
In all the time I've been writing on the web (first started on Amazon in 2004), I've never been any good at selling products on the web. I don't know why that is. I know people who make a packet at promoting products on...
I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all...
