    Hi guys
    I created a beauty related yt channel. Now some of video is getting 10k per day views. I put some affiliate link in my video( I use two types of oil and many people asked that where to buy so I put it.) I put amazon short link directly in description. Today I got 34 clicks but not sale.
    Can anyone tell me that why i am not getting any sale.
    Should I hide my affiliate link?

    I think you need to create an affiliate site and redirect visitors there. So it will be safer to not get a ban from the Amazon. And in the video itself, make a call to click on the link below.

    I know that it's against their TOS but Casey Neistat has Amazon affiliate links in his description.

    1) Amazon doesn't update stats in a real time. You need to wait 24-48 hours to actually see the stats of a previous day(s)
    2) Create a quick pre-lander or Amazon blog and link it to your video so it will apply to Amazon's TOS
    3) Good luck

    If you are direct linking, You should add your youtube channel URL to your list of websites on Amazon Affiliate Dashboard.

    I don't ever direct link from YT videos, I use a landing page.

    Just to be on the safe side: Create a blog and send the traffic over to your website.
    And please don't hide your affiliate link with shorteners that's the easiest way to get banned from Amazon.
    And list your website and Youtube channel on Amazon Affiliate Dashboard.
    And never ever promote your affiliate links on sites that you don't control.

    As others have stated you should create your own blog/website and write a related article for each of your high traffic videos. Just put the video inside the article and simply transcribe it if you're too lazy to come up with something more unique. Then from your youtube video link to said article. From that article link to Amazon.

    Oh and don't expect sales to magically happen. I've sent 50k semi targeted (not totally junk) traffic to my links and got 1 sale. Even pro marketers say that for every 100 hits a single sale is a job well done.

    That and also maybe they don't intend to order immediately. Let cookies do the rest ;)
