Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to this forum(my first post) and to internet marketing/making money online. I have no prior experience in selling anything online but i have some knowledge of website design. Today i made my first ever sale as an amazon affiliate. I made my first ever niche website months and months ago and kind of forgot about it. I hadn't updated it and i was focusing on learning more about keyword research to build a new niche website as i felt that this first website that i made had gave me a little bit of experience on how to get started with it all. Well, today i checked out my amazon affiliate account and noticed that someone had bought an item through one of my links! The item is worth $59.99 which i am pleased with. I didn't expect it at all and it has now gave me the confidence and motivation to pursue making money online via niche websites. As this is my first sale ever with amazon i still can't see how much commision i will make from the sale but i'm guessing it will show once the item is probably shipped?. Anyways, i know this probably won't mean anything to you lot as much as it does to me but i'm really happy that i was able to make this happen. I've been unemployed for 6 months now and really depressed at the lack of job interviews i've been getting recently. I'm 23 and have worked since i was 18 and it's frustrating that i am not able to get a job as soon as i would like to have. Maybe one day this will be my job!. Thanks all for reading and if i posted this in the wrong place - sorry. I'm still trying to navigate my way through the forums .
