    I can't wait for part 2. Are you going to be talking about how to structure an amazon affiliate site. Would it be best to have a blog/review style website or just a review style website.

    Sites like thisiswhyimbroke or goodreads isn't about editorial reviews. Lots of user generated content goes into these sites. For example: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23398625-kitchens-of-the-great-midwest Under community reviews. Tiwib again goes with community submissions, editorial reviews and funny descriptions and they get people converting.

    My site is trying to be like tiwib, but also incorporate some aspects of more review kinds of amazon affiliates like thewritecutter and thesweethome. Going with a mix kind of writing I think is good enough.

    I don't have the money to buy products and hire staff to review like thewirecutter does, yet my site isn't as usable as tiwib's is.

    agreed about the underestimating visitors. One of my competition is ranking for a brand model, and his review just talks about "yeah its great.." "everyone should buy one..." "you won't need another.." The product is actually very poor, so i just wrote a review with all the technical details of the product (had to approach a seller directly to answer a few questions) and then pretty much said this was a product to avoid. Waiting to see how well this will do on rankings, as technically its a better article, and its a technical niche, if this other guy ranks above me, then i'll know how stupid google really is.

    Part 2 will also focus on how to write content for your Amazon affiliate website in such a way that you maximize conversions.

    There are already some good guideline type of threads that discuss how to structure an Amazon affiliate site, such as this one from the user Nick Flame. But I'll definitely post my own version of that in near future, which should be a nice complement to Nick's great thread.

    Great post. Thanks.

    You said you provide reviews for your clients. What is your rate per review? It's probably well out of my budget, but it'd be useful to compare with other copywriters. TIA.

    Great post. Thanks.

    You said you provide reviews for your clients. What is your rate per review? It's probably well out of my budget, but it'd be useful to compare with other copywriters.

    Also, could you tell us your click-through ratios or what is a good ratio? What's the percentage of visitors to your website and then on to Amazon? What's the conversion rate like on Amazon?

    Thanks!

    CTR and conversion rates will vary greatly from niche to niche. In my experience as a general rule you can expect higher CTR and conversions with lower price items. Higher priced items might have lower CTR and conversion ratios but at the same time each conversion from a pricer item will translate into higher commissions. So as you can see, it's more a matter of maxmizing CTR and conversions in comparison to a niche/product type standard. If marketer A has a site promoting dog leashes and has a CTR of 40%, he probably won't be doing nearly as good profits-wise as a marketer B with a 5% CTR on a site in which he promotes high end cameras. I hope this helps to clarify your questions.

    Regarding our reviews, just check the link in my sig to check out details, prices. etc.

    It's never too late to try one more time. In Amazon, as well as in most IM business models, persistence pays off.

    Weird since I posted here but I guess it glitched on me. So I was wondering how much ROI% are you getting aprox. for your ad spend? 10k is heavy amount for newbies, but I'm sure it's worth it if the ROI% is healthy.

    Are you advertising via Adsense, FB ads, media buying etc.?

    I think you are a bit confused. The field "Advertising fees" in that screenshot refers to the amount Amazon pays you in concept of commissions of products sold through your referal, not to the amount spent in ads.

    How do you get so much traffic to your site? I'm struggling with daily traffic of 50-70 with disqus commeting and pinterest. I get clicks to amazon, which come from targeted blog comments (new computer game coming this fall) and they don't convert. I've done some manual seo(mainly profile links) on high da and trusted domains, but search engine traffic don't convert either.
