    If you post your amazon affiliate link on twitter and get clicks which lead to sales does this actually work? I received 19 clicks yesterday and no sales but just wondering if this leads to actual sales? Will amazon ban you for doing this??

    They probably won't ban you for doing that since social media could be part of your marketing strategy.

    According their site it's ok as long as it doesn't break Twitter's rules.

    I'm hoping that by getting the clicks it may lead to eventual sales. I'm probably annoying a fair amount of people by trying this but they have been clicking!

    It is all OK. Of course you can promote it through twitter. You can also redirect them to your blog which may be an amazon store or an amazon based site.

    Depends on how you are getting your clicks. Are people just curious and that's why they click or you are targeting them by some catchy text?

    I was going to post a topic on this. I wrote a little script that posts amazon links to twitter, using hash tags and theme based accounts. I have been doing this over a week and am getting between 5,000 and 6,000 clicks a day. But not one sale yet from this.

    Anyone have any tips, ideas or suggestions on how to target or convert better? I am sending all the clicks directly to amazon, so not sure if it would be better to setup a site and send the traffic there? But my fear with that is at least if someone clicks my link, visits amazon then comes back within 24 hours, I will still get credit for the sale, no matter what they purchase.

    Thanks for any suggestions or comments...

    I think the conversions is the hard part. Click thru is easy but many do not result in a true conversion.

    As mentioned before, there will be a low amount of conv. They key is to have ALOT of accounts with ALOT of followers on each.

    Twitter is not a very good ecosystem to promote affiliate links to retail products because people being on twitter are generally not in the "buying mood". They are mainly there to socialize. A platform which may interest you is shopkaboom, which is relatively new on the scene and is specifically geared towards promoting retail products.

    Hello,

    do you select people just by random or by their REAL/POTENTIAL interessts?
    General phrases like "twitter doesnŽt convert" are not really useful in internet marketing.
    Like facebook, google, youtube and so on twitter is just a tool to search for a TARGET AUDIENCE.

    Example:
    1) go to twitter, use the real time search and search for "taco bell"
    2) see how many people are talking about "taco bell" right now! (its always a huge number)
    3) find a way to pass the "spam" filter in twitter. Use many accounts and DONT overdo it!
    4) Offer them an offer like" TACO BELL FOOD - FREE FOR ONE YEAR" or something like that.
    5) Automate this process completly and see the traffic convert easliy!!! (With amazon links it is quite the same!)
    6) Move to the next keyword - rinse and repeat.
    7) Move to an caribian island and work 2-3 hours a day and be happy for the rest of your life. :-)

    If you guys want it iŽll share this thing in the method section with an better explanation.

    have fun with it.

    Yeah, i think for conversions you need to only be hitting the right audience, otherwise it's completely ignored as being spammy, even if people get "duped" into clicking on your link. they probably won't buy, and worse they would report the link as spam.

    Twitter is REALLY about real people.
    If you favorite author is sharing an Amazon link to his book - sure.
    If you saw I talked about Game of Thrones and decided to use your 140 characters ( and NOT being familiar with me) to spam me with an Amazon link for the book - I'll report it as spam, and rightly so.

    At any rate, Twitter alone isn't enough. Twitter couple with a powerful blog, filled with real followers - possible sales.

    That's the gist.

    I often use URL shortening service to shorten my amazon associate link and post to Twitter.
    I use more than one account. The earnings are quite positive.

    My guess would be due to the fact that most people are clicking those links on their phones. In my experience most people buy from their computers on amazon.

    I'm doing it so it's definitely possible. Thing is though, you'll have to follow the right people (those who follow key people in your niche), come up with catchy text and get ready to get tons of clicks at low conversion. Don't just spam links though, mix it up with actual content - quotes and jokes relevant to your niche are the easiest if you're having writers block. You'll need to post hundreds of tweets a day, so a mass tweet autoposter like Tweet Demon, spinning software, bulk url shorteners and retweet exchanges are your best friends. It's also a good idea to pose as a good looking woman - I can't see any other reason why my product links are getting naturally retweeted and favorited.

    Indeed it would be better to promote amazon links using a dignified website for affiliate marketing.
