Make Money With Amazon in 30 Days!
 
Whether you have a full-time job, self-employed or still at school if you’re looking to make money online then Amazon is a great place to start! However, it seems a lot of people discard Amazon straight away because they look at the commission tiers and think “geez I will never make any money getting 4-9% commission” then they compare it to the likes of Clickbank or other digital product vendors with their 70% plus commissions and potential upsells/downsells as added commission. However they never consider brand awareness, market leverage, exposure, refund rates, conversion rates or any other fundamental metric in online marketing. If this is you, then STOP having that mentality and read on!

I was like you once, I started with Clickbank and was straight away lured in to the foreign exchange (forex) market, with its great conversion rates, huge commissions and amazing upsells, but it was soon to blow over when refund rates hit 30-50%, products started to launch and disappear within 30 days, the market was at war with its self and I was the ammunition. I quickly got out of the Forex market, and then went in to promoting other products, such as SEO tools, audio software and by this time had enough experience, know-how and skill to realise that Clickbank really wasn’t the best platform for an affiliate promoting products through websites.

Now, don’t get me wrong – I am not a clickbank hater, I have my own products on Clickbank and I honestly believe that’s where the money is on Clickbank, in being a vendor – if your new to affiliate marketing, you can make money through Clickbank but I feel it is a long, cold road ahead with lots of competition, lots of sneaky vendors and affiliates and a massive learning curve. If you have an E-mail list, or a website which is a great match for a Clickbank product then go for it! You would be silly not to, but otherwise why not look elsewhere...or heck, why not compare two options, Clickbank and Amazon.

Well, with this case study/challenge I am going to be using Amazon as my platform of choice. I have been using Amazon for the past 12 months, I started with paid media activities, not a long term strategy but something that lasted about 9 months where I was making £x,xxx per month. Since then I moved my strategy to a long term approach, focusing on SEO, authority and niche content websites. However, the more I read, the more I realise that people are still struggling to crack that first sale, or first consecutive month where sales continue to come in and I cannot understand why.

Amazon has amazing conversion rates – especially when you focus on niche content websites leveraging traffic from long tail search queries.

In this case study/challenge I am going to challenge myself to research, create, promote and rank a completely new website. I’ve already done the research and registered the domain name which I will discuss in my next post tomorrow, the next step is choosing my platform, choosing my theme/template and writing down a layout/structure for my navigation of the site.

If you are interested in learning how to make money with Amazon then stay tuned, subscribe to the thread and let’s get going!

A 30 day journey to researching, developing, optimising and ranking a niche content site monetized primarily through Amazon, stay tuned to learn more!

I agree! Amazon is really no secret! This guy has a good focus on what to share. I just wanted to share that 30 is really good enough time for you to make money on amazon. I myself started making money with amazon on by first 60 days while being a member of HubPages! I never though I would be able to sell a $700 notebook computer from by page and make really good commissions!

Willy,

Don't get me wrong, but since you posted this message more than a week ago, it would be nice to the new followers if you updated the thread every two or three days. This will also help you maintain your focus on your objectives.

Best of Luck to you all!

Im in, well I already started with Amazon 2 years ago so a bit too early.

Will you be discussing your backlinking strategy? It would be interesting to hear how you intend to rank, now that Penguin has changed the face of SEO.

What platform did you use for paid traffic? Did you test multiple platforms or just one?

Everything needed to know about making money with Amazon has already been posted in the recent topics on this forum so why not jump on the train and do this with you.

Don´t worry, I wont be ruining your topic with my own results, just found motivation from your post.

I have made money with Amazon, but not enough to 'live on' yet. I have a couple of auto-blogs and I also use Pinterest.

I'm in, but if no updates are forthcoming, perhaps another warrior could pick up on this with Amazon experience, I'm sure most of us would be happy to follow, a thread or forum.

Re: Make Money With Amazon in 30 Days!
 
I'm happy to drive this thing if no other Warrior has an objection. Anyone who is interested please leave a message from now. We can close openings on the 14th of October if y'all are fine with it.

It's time people.

Can everyone who is going to take part in the 30 day challenge please contact me via PM or email me at us(at)pogospring.com.

Due to the recent EMD algo update I don't think we should limit ourselves to niche sites as originally suggested, but to any method that uses the Amazon program. Let's have some fun and make some money.

Hi all,

Adrian is my name. I'll be participating in this 30 day challenge and I volunteer to moderate. I'll document my particular process on my website as well as in this forum thread.

The basic challenge is a 'start from scratch' 30 day challenge. If you already have an Amazon aff account you will need to create a new tracking code and use this for stats. Otherwise if you don't have an Amazon aff account go set one up!

If you want in the steps are pretty simple:
1. Post in this thread your 30 day strategy. Just a general overview, eg: niche sites, guest posts, Squidoo, etc.
2. Post in this thread weekly updates. Include number of clicks, sales, values.
3. In 30 days time post your final update. Total number of clicks etc as well as the one best lesson learned from this challenge.


Any other general updates/wins etc please feel free to include in the forum thread.


Just post away in this thread if you want to participate.


Let's put the official start time at 8am Sydney time today - Monday (that means now!). Best of luck!

pogospring 14th October 2012 04:00 PM

Re: Make Money With Amazon in 30 Days!
 
To kick it off. My strategy is to create two new guest blog posts every day that follow a 'top 10 list' format. I'll be putting these on my own website as well as others that I already contribute to.


Initially I'll conduct keyword research using Long Tail Pro and follow up my guest posts with some general SEO/Link building using UAW.


By the end of the month I will have 60 new blocks of content containing my Amazon affiliate links on several very popular websites.

Thanks for the heads-up. I hadn't heard of these "offers" but now that I'm aware, I'll definitely stay. Thanks again.
