    Hello

    All I started out with Amazon affiliates a few months ago and I just would like to seek some advice as I have tried everything I know so far but with no success on conversions.

    I have a friend who makes 90k GBP a month from Amazon affiliates ! grrr and he motivated me to get into it I have set up a niche site I have used most traffic services you can think of ! All niche specific and directed to my niche blog with decent content and still no conversions. My feeling is that the traffic was mostly bots, pop-up traffic or domain traffic that being said / realized I turned my hand to youtube and other social networking sites and when I started generating alot of traffic or getting hits on facebook they limited me , so I couldn't proceed further with that. Lastly I tried buysellads which my friend said was one of the best ways to get decent directed niche traffic I tried this and am currently in the process of seing this pan out I would just like some advice or what other techniques I could try to to improve success.

    Thanks guys

    Here are your problems :-
    1 - Not Targeted Traffic : You can't buy traffic from some service and hope it converts !! Those traffic services have other uses, conversions are not one of them. Or else, everyone would be rich as hell !!!1

    2 - Not Targeted keywords : The whole idea behind conversion is, you attract people who want something and give it to them. So, if your traffic coming to your website from no keywords ! How the hell do you expect them to convert.

    In Conclusion you have to learn how to attract traffic that converts


    BTW, amazon is the easiest form of making money, so, stay with it till you succeed and STOP BEING LAZY LOOKING FOR SHORTCUTS

    Thank for advice but with buysellads the traffic is targetted as I am advertising on anothers site with similiar if not exactly the same content. This traffic is being directly passed onto my website so I dnt why I cant get a conversion from that. This has worked for me in the past

    Its not a good idea to buy traffic for a niche website, especially for amazon sites. Mostly these are review sites so you need people that are in the 'buying' mood.

    The best traffic is organic traffic from google IMO. Rank your site up and you'll see conversions.

    Don't waste your time and money for non targeted shit traffic, Just spend your time and money with SEO.
    1. First Get a Buyer Keyword with good search volume.
    2. Analyse your Competitors.
    3. Build and boost your site with SEO.
