    Most of us will agree never to put all your eggs in one basket but when it comes to Amazon you can expect to get some nice surprises when you least expected.

    Sales is not very consist especially the stuff I am promoting but most of the sales I had is mostly unrelated. Someone even bought a kids Halloween costume and a THOR Hammer. Well I can't complain as long as a get the commission.

    I've just open up my affiliate stats and once again what a surprise to see that someone actually ordered a audible trail putting a nice 5 dollar bounty commission in my pocket.

    Thought I just had to share this so you can see that all you have to do is to guide people to Amazon and Amazon will do the rest.

    Yep, if you can get them to your site and entice them to click through, then they can end up buying anything totally unrelated to the original link.

    Congratulations!
    If you have some tips for guiding people to an Amazon link that would be very helpful! I've been an associate for over a year and
    have had very little success!

    Thanks

    Yeah right, I always look what has been ordered today as sometimes I end up getting a new idea for new websites.

    I had a treadmill site ranking pretty good with links to the products in Amazon. I'd sell about four $2000 treadmills a month which gave a nice commission, but I was blown away by allt he other stuff people ended up buying. Was selling dozens and dozens of unrelated products, pots and pans, wheels for their truck, books, other exercise equipment, etc etc. Was unbelievable. Unfortuantely the site got penalized. And got sent a cease and desist letter because I was using a company's name in my URl and outranked the company for their own product.

    Link to Amazon Associates URLs from your product images. This alone generates a huge amount of clicks on my site. I would say 50% of the stuff we sell and get commissions on isn't being promoted on our site and 90% of the products weren't bought directly from a link.
    Last month (October) I processed 6600 clicks on Associates links and $665 USD in commissions (+$40 in bounties) on our completely passive web app.

    Well unfortunately my site is not ranking even ranking on the first page for any keyword most keywords rank on the second page. What I do is targeting Facebook groups and pages to get people to my site and then to click on a link that takes them to Amazon. What I recently did is creating very small posts (about 100 words ) so people don't have to read a lot of stuff, this will get them quicker over to Amazon.

    I love amazon! You get commission on virtually everything bought through your website. And I started a top 10 list site a month or so ago. Am going to start a journey thread soon.

    Amazon is one of the best way to make money.

    I don't know too much, but with this 100 words, you are not planning to rank on google?

    The smart people among you will be collecting their details wherever possible so you can keep sending them to amazon.

    Hello, would appreciate some clarification! Not sure what you mean when you say " link to Amazon Associates URL from product images"? On my site I show images of vacuum cleaners which are Amazon links! Is that what you mean or are you doing something different?

    Thanks,

    Yes, Amazon can be crazy like that. I'm not sure how long you have been with Amazon in terms of years, but Christmas time is when the real surprises come. When you get those clicks that result in someone, or multiple people buying close to their entire Christmas shopping list through you. I've had it happen quite a few times. I feel excited just thinking about it! Hope you get the same luck this year.

    Yes I know that with this 100 word posts (about 4 of them)I will not rank, most of my posts is 600 up to 2000 word posts. And this was just a test I conducted for Facebook.
