    Hey guys,

    I've recently been working with coding up some autopilot amazon associate twitter bots.

    I've noticed in my current two niches that I've just started in with 16 accounts so far, I'm able to drive roughly 100+ visits per day per account.

    My conversion rate is a tiny 0.05%

    I'm either going to need a lot of accounts + some proxies + some less obvious posting patterns, or a much higher conversion rate. Curious what you guys see out of twitter in your various strategies and earning methods (not just amazon).

    For the sake of information, my method to drive traffic is not DM's or any kind of following / unfollowing. I have a bank of filler posts where it posts three from there, then does a search in the niche to appropriately suggest amazon products to warm(ish) users with a single mention and no hash tags. This was the fastes I was able to spit out links without getting rate limited.

    Any tips welcome too. Thanks!

    The best advice in IM.. Scale it.

    You have 16 accounts with 1600+ visits/day
    Make it 160 accounts and you will have 16000+ visits

    Thanks. I increased from 16 to 27. Will be able to check my stats in like 6 hours. Will probably need a few hundred phone verified accounts minimum at this rate though.

    I tried adsense for a while. I was getting about 4k visits per day to a content/SEO based site before i switched tactics. The traffic you'd need to earn a real income is in the 10k to 100k+ daily range. I'm not sure how much traffic you would need in amazon. Depends on your products typically some and conversion rate. People with good conversion rates can make a killing off less than 100k monthly visits.

    I can't say much as I'm not really earning great either. But what I can say is this:

    Don't be afraid to think lazy. Minimize any recurring tasks you might have to do. Automate everything possible so your entire focus can be on scaling. Otherwise workload and burnout will become a problem before you see any real profit.

    A lot depends on your target audience. If you're just randomly contacting people who are distantly related to your products, then yes, you'll need a whole lot more traffic to get some sales. Laser targetting your audience is the best way to go, but you'll require either very smart software or manual work.

    I don't think making more accounts will help to drive more traffic. The best way to get more traffic is to work on social media channel and distribute your content on that channels. The more you distribute, the more you will get traffic.

    I'm targeting niche specific people with niche specific products causing them to glance at the amazon page. The primary goal isn't to get sales, it's to get amazon cookies on as many people as possible with the hope that they buy anything else within 24 hrs.

    Creating more accounts allows me to serve products to more people without hitting limits. So in my case more accounts directly increases traffic, but brings higher risk of detection without proxies. Plus the pretty low conversion rate..

    I might try out some different niches. See if I can target a wealthy demographic or something.. Maybe that will increase my conversion rate.

    Currently I'm not really targeting hot buyers, I'm targeting interested parties. That might be part of it too.

    Maybe I can find a niche that's all 3.. Wealthy demographic, hot buyers, and people with an interest in the products.

    Hmm need to figure out how to improve this..

    Clicks this month: 20,500k
    Sales: 7
    Conversion: 0.03%
    Earnings: $2.29
    Clicks yesterday with 27 accounts: ~2,600 clicks (I think my bots went down for a few hours but still.)

    oof lol

    I think part of the problem is I'm largely suggesting free products to increase the click through rate. Idk.. I need to think about this.. suggestion welcome.

    So I'm thinking I just keep scaling and trying to work into more profitable niches / strategies.

    Anyone have proxy suggestions?

    Hello,

    one advice: STOP!

    You will be banned of amazon affiliate program!

    Why? If your conversion is too low (and with 0,03% it is), amazon can consider that your traffic is very bad quality and can ban you.

    How do I know it? It happened for me. I used twitter with a lot of accounts, I had a lot of traffic, but only a few sales, and one day, ban.

    Read amazon ToS for affiliates. It's in.

    Ah.. right. That's what I get for skimming. Thanks for the warning.

    Just means I need to focus on getting my conversion rate up over more traffic right now. That way I don't go around ringing automated bells.

    I just switched from a niche primarily aimed at increasing clicks from free/interesting content, to a niche primarily aimed at people who already have a need for a particular product.

    Hoping for traffic to go down a little with an increase in conversions. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks for the suggestions btw. Is a help.

    Can you say how many followers you had then, and how many accounts? I'm interested to know what kind of clickthrough rate you were getting?

    Why didn't you keep scaling it up?

    I didn't keep scaling up because it wasn't twitter oriented. It was google traffic. I was #2 in my niche and I didn't have the bankroll to beat out #1. Plus the effort to create content burnt me out. I looked to find someone I could pay to keep making content for me but that didn't go so well.

    I wasn't exactly making a lot (few 100 per month) so I just switched tactics.
