    Hi,

    I just want to post my income generated from Amazon affiliate program. I have a photography niche site, canon brand to be specific. so, using some methods i gather here in BHW, within the time range of August-October I earned some that I thought impossible to earn. I totally give up on Google Adsense and other CPM, CPA, PTC methods that gives me nothing and turned my site to Amazon for the better. It's almost a year since I started my Internet Marketing career(?) and I earned nothing. It's only last August that I started to focus on my site. For everyday that I visit on this wonderful forum site, I learn new things applicable to my goals and I see a better future. I can't say that this income is the best but for me it's great. Before I go, I have to thanks to the people here in BHW. I love you guys! you are my saviour! BHW is the best..... :)

    By the way, this particular site has an average 300 clicks and visitors only per month based from amazon daily trends. 10 visitors per day. it is on the top in the 1st page in google result outplacing even the main canon usa site for its main keyword. I still don't apply any paid ads to promote the site because I had a bad experience in the past using some paid ads that claim nothing but shitty results. eleavers is number one on the list. they produced nothing but crap traffic in my site. Is there any reputable paid traffic ads that you can give to me guys aside from bing and google ads?

    You might want to remove your site's URL from the OP. Some people do some messed up stuff to other people's sites.

    Congrats on your success though.

    PoeMansDreams, the amazon revenue of all the sells is 4k and i was paid almost $200 for the advertising fees. its just from the 19 product that sells thru my site. with luck, i was able to sell 3 expensive canon camera lens. i'm now on a chase to sell 100 products per day. i think it is achievable if i have the good amount of traffic flowing in my site.

    naveen, it is working man. kindly check if you've type the right add.

    ice41, i'm using wpzonebuilder to display amazon products to my site automatically with an ease. it's the best amazon plugin for me. i'm using it to my other niche sites. i have the plugin, just ask if you want to try using it for free.

    nytrolic, thanks. hopefully, i can multiply those earnings in the near future. i'm still on the process of choosing the right ads and traffic provider so that money spent will not waste again. right now, this site is only having an average 10 clicks per day from amazon trends. despite this very low number of traffic the site still manage to earn that amount.

    Lbrown, are they going to hack my site or something? thanks anyway.

    I have a top quality Canon domain name which contains the brand name. Some months ago before doing anything with the domain I read somewhere that Canon are bastards when it comes to people using their brand name. I heard of one guy having his domain taken from him by Canon as it was used for a forum style site. No affiliating or selling on the site, just for a site for fans of Canon cameras and lenses

    Not saying this will happen to you OP, but just to be wary.

    Thanks for sharing and good to know. I hope it continues to grow. I'm still searching for the right niche, but knowing what works, what doesn't, and how it works is a great help.

    Quite nice, very well done. You deserve more for driving $4k of sales to Amazon. Are you driving traffic by SEO or some other mechanism?

    Nice job - amazon certainly is a good affiliate program for a lot of niches, especially with the immense amount of trust that amazon has garnered from consumers.

    The only downside is that it takes several months to get paid by them.

    You buy ads on amazon and send the traffic to your site? I'm trying to understand what it is that you're doing :)
