    Any amazon affiliate guru's? I've started sending traffic to Amazon products by direct linking from my Instagram network to the product page. Promoting the link only two days got me 721 clicks on my affiliate link....but no sales. 721 clicks tells me that the interest is obviously there in the product. No conversions has me a little confused. Now I do plan on building my own branded affiliate website, its actually under construction as we speak.....but I would think that Amazon's website should convert as well if not better than my own considering they are the best in the business. Maybe if my followers see my branded website > Amazon it will convert better? Just interested in your thoughts. I'm determined to make some $$ off of the 12 months of work I've put into this IG network! Thanks in advance.

    **Note the product isn't super expensive at $85**

    I think people are interested in those products but don't have money yet, because of the holiday season ^_^

    I had the same problem, I now use ebay as they are just as good. Try easybay pro plugin, I just got paid a few hundred pounds from ebay into my PayPal no problem

    I'll take a peek into that, the website that I'm building has the ability to import amazon as well as ebay products so that I'll have both options available to me.

    What products you are promoting?

    There are stages in selling.
    All you do is hard selling.

    My usual 5 stages through to start selling

    1. ad
    2. leads
    3. buying
    4. subcribe
    5. softselling to back order

    All stages require different equipment and software for maximum results

    Well worth a look, I'm using it. You can put live auctions into sidebars also

    if you get 700+ clicks but 0 sales, then it must be something wrong with your account or the product you promote.

    try check some of the item from your affiliate link, try purchase and see if anything wrong.

    Maybe the product isn't as great then you thought.

    Those 700 clicks are only bots... Same as Twitter... Go post your link on Twitter and add retweets to it and see how many clicks you get on Amazon.. It's a lot.. Same thing happens with Clickbank links.

    But the good news is I'm sure there are real clicks in there and if so they have your cookie as long as they don't clear their cookies.

    Is your product relevant to the visitors your sending?
