    Hi! I am newbie to BHW AND also to CB, CJ so I'd love your experience/advice. I make a few dollars on Amazon but nothing remotely significant. Recently got in with CB and CJ. Which is the best for conversion + payments? Or which works the best for you? And assuming that, unlike Adsense, they do not care if I've got each other on the same page, is that even a smart move? Oh and feel free to speak to me like an idiot; I'm a graphics designer who's decided to give it up for making other people money and try it on my own. Rough times we're in. Thank you.

    Hey, it's great you're launching your IM journey! You said that you have made some money with Amazon before; even if you've made $1.00 online, you're ahead of 99% of the people out there!

    This may not answer your question exactly, but I find that it's not so much about the platform as it is the product. If you work on promoting something that you have an interest in, or have some knowledge about, it will make promoting it a lot easier as you will have a window into what the customer is looking for. Don't get discouraged, and remember that you're already ahead of the pack by being here!

    My option goes to AMAZON. There are many reasons why it works very nice, but above all, I tried many programs in the last years and AMZ made me the most money. I wrote also a Journal about how did I approached Amazon: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...y-make-small-fortune-amazon-open-journal.html

    Don't get discouraged by the low commission :) The conversion will push your earnings at a more than decent level.

    My vote goes to Amazon also. Many times I send someone to buy item A for $5 and they end up buying some item not even closely related to item A and spend $200 to $300.

    Thank you, you guys. I really appreciate what I am hearing & learning so far. Casey101 - Thank you for the encouragement. I am looking forward to this new endeavor. Maecenas - Reading your EBook now and appreciating the tips so much; I am really loving the Amazon potential, as I really had no idea! NOT to say there may not be a place for CJ or CB but maybe I'm good just starting with ONE and then after proficiency, maybe expand out to the other guys if I am feeling adventurous?] I have a bit of an 'excitability creative disorder' and can get overwhelmed easily which turns into tangents. Then it's the deer in headlights situation and I freeze and do nothing.

    Hi,

    I am glad the E-book is useful. The feedback I received was just POSITIVE so it encourages me write the second part for that.
    Speaking about excitability, you can see my AMAZON journal from here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-fortune-amazon-open-journal.html#post5182727

    I am sure you will find useful things as well ;)
    Don't hesitate to contact me on Skype in case you decide to go for Amazon.

    All the best
