Targeted a niche.
Wrote/bought 5 articles, 4 product reviews.
Promoted in FB groups and posted backlinks
I got average traffic of 1x/minute
and avg. of 50 leads to amazon links with zero conversion.

I dont know if i should keep doing this. Im thinking of creating another website for adsense.

    Please stop. If it was as simple as building a website with some cheap articles and a couple affiliate links, everyone would be a millionaire.

    You might see some short term results, though they are likely to be just that.

    Stop building websites and build a business.

    You can succeed! Good luck!

    look up "extreme review" by a warrior here named sojourn Her amazon products will take you to the next level.

    You should be writing your own reviews but if you choose to outsource then you should provide your writer with specific instructions. This is spelled out in Erica's Extreme Review.

    Look it up, I own it and highly recommend it.

      Maybe your reviews don't present information the way your visitors want it presented?

      Maybe your materials don't engage them enough?

      Also, based on how you got your traffic, maybe you didn't filter them enough?

      Focus on the NEED, not the money. That's how you MAKE MORE MONEY.

    I agree with Alex, if you think you will make sales with just 4 articles this isn't for you. Start your own business and hace constancy.

    4 articles are nothing, keep doing more, make your website an authority site, the more content and traffic you have, you will have more chances to make money.

    Don't create useless articles, always offer your readers great value, also you can create something for free like an ebook and start building your own email list.

    Think in long termn, don't think in fast results.

    Once you have an authority site and your own email list, you will be able to promote not only your amazon stuff, you can promote other things related from other sources or even your own products, but never promote things you don't know just to make money.

    Your readers, followers or your subscribers trust you, build a relationship with them and don't disappoint them at any point, offer them awesome value and awesome products you know are great, this could sound strange but don't think about money to make money. Write content thinking about offering great value, write an ebook thinking about building your email list, don't write an article to make money, it won't work.

    What do you think will be the best? a site with 4 articles with affiliate links or an authority site with A LOT of awesome content, a lot of comments, great value and great affiliate link, people will buy more there for sure.

    Don't get overwhelmed, take action everyday and never give up friend you can do it.

    What is your CURRENT website address? You never know... your problem of 0 conversions could have something to do with your current site.

    Think about putting out more high-quality articles that your intended audience would find useful/entertaining. To bring more traffic to your site, think about further building and defining your brand with social media. Ad campaigns are inexpensive to run and can extend your post reach by thousands.

    Building a website and publishing it is damn easy! But promoting the stuff and getting our site on the Google's 1st or 2nd page is as hard as building 2 inch bicep in 1 day !!

    You need to involve in some SEO techniques to make your niche site successful.. try going for off page SEO techniques like blog commenting, forum posting, guest posting, social bookmarking and see your site ranking higher in just few months ! If making a site was that easy, then everyone in this world used to make money online !! If you are from India, then you can also try for Flipkart mobiles or any other e-commerce store with Amazon. Have some patience and most of all, publish articles

    ~~ All the best ~~

    We used to be able to build Amazon sites like that 4-5 years ago, not today. You are better off targeting a niche (not a product) and creating well built out site with GREAT UNIQUE content answering your audiences questions, and then sprinkile in amazon links to products that align with you niche.

    And never forget, now more than ever, the money is in THE LIST!

    It's too early to draw conclusions. I mean, what were you expecting from sending 50 people to Amazon?

    On a different note, this type of websites are bound to fail. Too thin, both in Google's and people's eyes.

      These days - best to read at least the last couple of posts before responding in any thread.

      This one - and several others - bumped by a link spammer in the past hour.

      Just wait a second – so what you're telling me is that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right?

    You can expect 100 leads with a conversion. Sometimes more than 100 leads. If fully depends on your traffic. Is the traffic targeted? Targeted traffic is more effective than others. Thanks for your interest.
