    When trying to make money as an amazon affiliate do you prefer to write a review blog post (like all the WSO and clickbank ebooks say) or do you prefer to make a "fake" store where people end up checking out on Amazon?


    which makes you the most money?

    Lemme see, at the moment I have about 170 items shipping with my Amazon affiliate account and generally run a 3% conversion rate.

    My objective is just to get them to leave my pages as quickly as possible with my cookie. I want them to continue searching on Amazon, screw going through my puny selection.

    I suppose if you have a higher ticket item, a little pre-sales spiel would certainly help. I just assume they'd read all the very nice reviews that are already on Amazon. Why would anybody believe just ME?
