    Default How I made over $4000 selling the New PS4 & Xbox ONE

    I'm posting this to give you guys a possible model to follow and to get your creative juices
    flowing when looking for ways to make money.



    1. I signed up for the Amazon Associates, Walmarts Affiliate and Gamestops affiliate programs. (I only ended up selling from Amazon and Walmart)

    2. I bought a general niche domain name for about $2 from Godaddy (It had "preorders" in the

    name). Godaddy lets you make as many subdomains as you want so I was able to cover both
    systems with this one domain. ie... xboxone.preorders???????.com, ps4.preorders???????.com.
    Each domain redirects to my "Amazon Store Product Link". Amazon Stores are very easy and free to set up.

    3. Now its time to advertise and get sales... My first marketplace was Facebook. I created

    an ad that told users that there was only a limited time to still purchase the console. I
    said there was only 4 days left to preorder and that quantites are about to run out. I
    targeted everyone that was listed on FB with xbox or ps4 listed in their interests. My ad just direct linked to my amazon link and not my Domain Name because I wanted people to think it was an ad from Amazon which they trust without much questioning. I also made 4 variations to the ad image and only kept the 2 highest converting. FB brought pre-orders everyday.

    4. Next I was going to come up with a plan to tackle Youtube for this offer. This is better

    if you have little to no money to start with since youtube is free to get going and requires
    very little money and effort to get ranked (usually). The idea was to create review videos just talking about how great the new PS4 was going to be and other videos about the X1. I also made a few review videos for the games that will be coming out on each system. In the Videos "About section" is where I posted my purchased Domain Name linking to each console. I wont go into how to rank videos here but you can find many threads here on BHW explaining that.

    5. I watched all the pre-orders coming in each day until they ran out. Once the release

    date hits all of these consoles will ship and Amazon will credit me with over $4000 in sales.

    This should have your minds thinking and I hope that you've even had a few ideas while reading this.

    *Oh I should also note that I generated a lot of "NON-PRODUCT SALES" This is a great plus to promoting Amazon products as you'll be surprised at how many sales you get for products you aren't even promoting.


    I wish everyone out there the same and even greater success than I've had.


    GOD Bless.

    Thanks for sharing mate. I'm sure this will end up being moved to VIP soon though. Could you tell me how long you were working on this project to generate $4000? Cheers and well done man.

    I'm kinda wondering, is it even possible to do that? It's just a question, I actually don't know for sure (only time I tried to use FB ads I got my account blocked before even starting )

    I've linked directly to amazon with FB ads in the past, so more than likely is still working.

    Also, I'm interested to know how many "pre-orders" you received with Amazon giving a maximum commission of 8.5% with 3,131 minimum orders. You had to have had hundreds of orders to be receiving a $4,000 commission check from them. Maybe you meant to say "How I made over $400 selling the New PS4 & Xbox One"? Something seems a little off but if you had the right amount of targeted traffic anything is possible.

    Man did you really have this much traffic just on a brand new YouTube video and running some Facebook ads?

    Doesn't Amazon ban your account for cloaking its affiliate link?

    In this case, you redirected ps4.preorderxxxxx.com to the Amazon product page, I could have sworn that's disallowed by Amazon no?

    This is BHW, so I am sure something that was used was against someone's TOS.

    looking at this, op had to have sold about 100-130 or so preorders. These systems are hot products so it's definitely not impossible, if he could have gotten 5000 somewhat targeted viewers, than yeah

    Yup, not allowed. Wouldn't surprise me, if Amazon refused to pay him his money (prolly on last day), and ban his Account.

    Well, sharing methods which are highly likely to get your Account banned isn't very cool, BHW or not.

    I'm not hating here OP. I think a lot of people are still going to try this. I'm just saying use with caution or be smart about it, if yer know what I mean.

    Your Welcome. I started planning this probably about 2 months ago. It won't go to the VIP because its not something that can be done directly since they preorders are done but I am hoping it will get a lot of you thinking about some different creative ways to make money. Sometimes I'll sit for an hour with a pen and pad and just think loosely about new ways to make money. Though this has worked a lot most of my ideas come by surprise.

    Very clever and creative thinking. Also I think redirecting your links to Amazon is the whitest of black hat, you're not scamming anyone, these sales are happening and there's gonna be consoles delivered. All clean and well executed, congrats.

    Yes it worked and I forgot to mention that it was to my Amazon store and not just to the main site.

    Someone just PM'd me asking for advice to get this method started selling the preorders... They purchased a domain for it, started a FB ad.. This method was obviously just for an example and as you can see the preorders have run out.

    ******* DONT DUPLICATE THIS METHOD WITH THE PS4's OR X1's SINCE PREORDERS HAVE RUN OUT********

    Amazon are on stuff like this. I didn't cloak my links, made 900$ and got suspended,

    They are not exactly 'apologetic' about taking your money either...

    Thanks. I hope this has helped a lot of members come up with their own unique methods. The point of this post wasn't for others to just copy but to think more creatively.

    I meant $4000, if it were only $400 I probably wouldn't have posting about it. I have over 100 pre-orders and about 60 separate orders. In the first few days the other orders outnumbered the pre-orders about 2to1.

Something seems a little off but if you had the right amount of targeted traffic anything is possible.

    Don't you all see this post seems to be amazon advertising ? Amazon is well known as rip of company they allow produce traffic to them, sell their products and they refuse to pay because you violated the rules. But they do not refused to sell to your targetted customers! This is well done rip of on poor people that try to make some monies. Avoid amazon trust me.... Do not waste ur time....

    This was great thanks, makes me glad to be a member when I'm bored on a Friday. Good work, I've recently done something very similar with designer sunglasses. I need to find more niches though.

    Its was about 34% that was non-advertised item purchases and out of that 34% about half of that was completely unrelated to Gaming.

    Great idea, OP. Clean and absolutely creative. It's a shame that I don't live in the US - so I don't think Amazon is going to pay me that well. Anyhow, I think I can twist this method with something else.

    When you signed up as an amazon associate you were asked to READ THEIR TOS! It has all their rules in there. It's not their fault you are one of those idiots that skip everything that has more than 10 words written to it. Change your attitude, especially since you are one of the "poor people that try to make some monies". Amazon is easily one of the best networks, as people will pretty much buy everything if it is listed on Amazon. They feed many of BHW's wallets. Also, GTFO.

    Because people are incapable of thinking. There is an almost endless variety of products which this can be applied to. But people read the OP which says "PS4 & Xbox One" and so they are unable of thinking of other products. Just read reply #30. Sheeps.

    Where do you live? What difference does it make? They are not going to pay you less, just because you are foreign.

    "that much traffic" is less the accomplishment as it is "Very Targeted Traffic" and it helps that it was a limited pre-order of extremely HOT!!! items.

    It's a good share, a great idea actually theoretically, but with the high cost of FB ads, I doubt you can really profit via pre-orders, it's hard to see your EPC be so high on amazon affiliates, especially direct linking. Also, how do you track and even know if your EPC will beat your CPC? It's rather risky pouring all your cash in and not being able to track or improve your campaign. My two cents.

    This is already the third great thread from cburton81 I read within last days

    I definitely will try this method. No need to wait for PS5 or iPhone 6, there are always new and top selling products released, e.g. upcoming games etc.
    Only thing, did you actually pay for your fb ads or did you have vouchers? Because if you have to pay for the campaign, I think it would be quite expensive. Only used fb ads once, and paid quite some money, without big results. Not many clicks and only 1-2 sales.

    How come you didn't use ebay? the link below shows someone selling the preorder for ps4 and the bid is up to $565! and correct me if i'm wrong but the preorder on amazon is only $399 (200 buck profit on 1 sale).
