    So what is your Youtube Amazon technique?

    Because I have good niche with tinyurl links and posting on channels and vid responses on high vid views and all I have to show for it is zero dollars and just 32 Amazon clicks.

    amozon = won't work. Feed people on youtube with free stuff and u will be rich. Try to sell them anything = u will be starving. People go to youtube to entertain themselves not to buy things :)

    Good questoin - and the answer is you CAN monetize YT with great videos.

    FACT: Blatant Youtube advertising doesnt work (rather it works SUPER POORLY). But if you draw people in with entertaining, funny, informative or other videos that people WANT to watch, you monetize THAT CONTENT with your links and by directing people.

    Simple fact is if you get 2,000,000 views from a targeted market, a percentage of those people are going to click somewhere you direct them.

    If your selling, you convert some of those clicks to sells.

    The people who say you can't make money on products for sale w/ YT say that because they haven't done it. But you absolutely CAN. This has been my primary source of income since August.

    @Therookie: I've seen you make posts asking why you're not making money with this and that technique SO MANY TIMES since I joined this forum. And EVERY time, the answer is that you haven't stuck to it and gotten enough targeted traffic to make it work.

    Looking at your post count, you obviously spend a TON of time on this forum sampling every technique there is. But you won't make money until you stop sampling and just determine to make 1 thing work before you move on to your next venture. If you're not willing to do that, then you might as well become a guru and sell ebooks on all the techniques you've sampled and sell it on Warrior Forum. Maybe you can get a JV with Mike Filsaime.

    To answer your question: Everyone buys through Amazon. If you get enough people through your Amazon link, you will make commissions. But don't expect shit for 32 clicks. You need to focus, get your traffic up. If you can get 32 clicks, you can get a thousand if you just get a little tunnel vision and determine to do it. It's a simple numbers game. If you are running 1,000+ uniques/day for a week and you're STILL not making a commission, then move on.

    Amazon has about 5% commision based on volume. I'd try to promote something else.

    The percentage is low, but what do you care about more: % of sale or money in your pocket? The latter metric is the only one I pay attention to. If you get a cookie on enough browsers, the statistics are on your side that you will make commissions. Plus, there are high ticket items on Amazon, so that 5% could be significant, depending on what kind of audience you're targeting. Plus, people often buy more than 1 item...

    Hey I have tried

    I been posting video responses all over Youtube but some freakin peeps delete them when they see them.Then there is the channel comments I have done some people freakin delete them too or dont accept.


    I am not going to use those tools to increase views as I see too many peopl e getting banned.

    So how come I only freakin get like 250 odd views after a few weeks per vid?

    What about albums? I've noticed some tracks with hundreds of thousands of views and a fat Amazon link in the description.

    You could really scale this up big time. It sounds almost too good to be true. Maybe nobody buys?

    Still, 200K views off one track...

    can you ad amazon links directly into youtube descriptions or do you need to put a link to a blog and redirect them?

    Its not hard people, back to basics then..
    Who is the main audience on youtube,
    What are they looking for,
    How old are they, WHAT DO THEY WANT.... (Review it and..) Give it to them!


    The rest is B.S, clutter and distraction
