I joined Amazon Web Services and signed up for Amazon S3, and is it really this easy???
So far I only made a test bucket and uploaded a random mp3, tried it out and it seemed to work, but I saw videos on youtube that made S3 seem insanely complex, but here's what I did for my test before building my thank you page, I'M about to be a Clickbank Vendor YAHOOO!!!!
Ok so I made a test bucket, uploaded a test mp3, and I did not use any folders or anything, I just uploaded the mp3 straight to the bucket.
Then, I clicked next on everything and left everything default, and then I clicked the mp3 I uploaded and went to permissions I think... it was a few days ago, anyways from permissions then I went to metadata and then from meta data I did content-disposition = attachment.
Oh yea, and I also made the mp3 public on READ ONLY.
After that, I copied the link and pasted it into the web browser and the pop up box popped up that says "save file as" JUST LIKE I WANTED YYYYEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not at all want to file to just open in a web browser, I wanted the save as box to pop up SO FRICKEN AWESOME YESSSSS!!!!!
I clicked save as and everything worked YES!!!!
So, I haven't touched anything since then, I deleted the test bucket and the mp3, and for the last few daysI'm thinking, all I have left to do is make my thank you page and then make a vendor clickbank account and submit my product for review... d@mn.... that's insane.
I'd rather make 50 dollars a month as a clickbank vendor than work 40 hour a week at McDonalds for 2 grand a month or whatever that would pay. That 50 can turn into millions with time, that 2 grand can't turn into anything with time...
Anyways, is it really this easy, Amazon s3??
Can I just make a bucket, upload my 3 mp3's, 1 pdf, and 1 .zip and then do that same thing for all of them, and then just copy the link for each and put that link in my download buttons and then people will click my download button and the save as box with pop up and they'll click download???? Is this real life??? How did I get to this point????
All Amazons3 videos looked so insanely complex, and then I saw a video where a guy did what I'm doing, only he use folders, and he gave read and write access to the public, but I read through what amazon says when I signed up for s3 and they HIGHLY recommended to never give write access to public, I have no idea what that means, I have no clue why that guy did it or why he used folders, I the thing is, yea I tested it I saw it works, but is there something that I don't know, and I don't know that I don't know it, and if I knew it I'd know it would be a bad idea to deliver my product like this, or will this work perfectly fine and I'm all good to go?
Also do I just take the link from each product and just paste it into the download button? Would there be any reason to use bitly and shorten/change that link or should I just take the amazon s3 link and just put it right in my download button???
Clickbank! Clickbank! Clickbank! Clickbank!
I just can't wait! to be a Clickbank Vendor!!!!!!
Oh yea I had one more thing I was going to ask... How do i back up my site for free with no experience I'm using wordpress... is it even something to worry about? Won't I be able to just message hostgator if my site has a problem or what do I need to know is there a plugin?
I can't believe I actually for real did all this and I'm actually for real about to be a Clickbank Vendor lol holy f***.
