Are you kidding me? - This is cool!

This is AMAZING!

It's 1:55am so if this post is a little sluggish I apologize.

Some of you may have read my thread around a week ago where I announced that I'd made my first money online through Amazon commission.

Well I've been working away on my site & I've finally made it into page one of Google for its main keyword.

I just logged into my Amazon account before I went to bed & found another 8 sales!

Here's the interesting part though...I check my stats every day to see how things are moving.

Yesterday according to Google analyitics my site had 397 visits & today its went up to 441

My Amazon account for yesterday had 123 clicks & today I had 140

I had a total of 5 sales in my Amazon account & I now have 13 so that's 8 sales today.

If you work this out, I had 44 new visits to my site & out of those 44 I had 17 clicks through to Amazon & out of those 17 clicks I got 8 sales!

Well I'm pretty happy with that

      Great work Barry. Now you know why we love Amazon so much. That conversion rate is through the roof and it's so much easier to make a sale.

      Keep it up and go and build ten more sites. Before you know it you'll be making a full time income.

      Cheers

    Congratulations! Keep promoting and getting those sales, and soon you will have enough to start pushing things to the next level, or building a second Google #1 site!

    Any suggestions for the rest of us that are working with Amazon? What kind of writing got the clicks? What kind of promoting you've done? Perhaps a link to your site so we can examine a successful masterpiece?

    Great job Barry. You gotta love hitting page one and seeing the sales come streaming in. It looks easy when someone else sees it happen, but for those of us who work to get that page one listing - it's a job well done!

    Those are some amazing conversion rates! What kind of promoting did you do to get your website ranked on the first page of google?

    Congrats by the way, if you can scale up your efforts maybe you can keep this up for other keywords on google... Stories like this keep me inspired to work even harder on my marketing

    Cheers mate

    Congrats man... Personally I disagree with the people telling you to now start cranking out more sites... It appears that you have found an offer that is really converting. Now you need to get the site to #1 and watch what it does to your traffic...

    Get the most that you can out of this site and the obvious hot offer.

    Your traffic will likely triple or more when you hit #1 (if you are mainly getting your traffic now from this keyword that you are currently ranking for)...

    If you triple or quadruple your traffic and conversion holds up, then that is significant.

    Good Luck!

    Congrats on your success! I just wanted to say that these 8 sales may have come from one person, or they may have come from a cookie tracked from one of the people that visited your site the day before.

    Thanks for all the kind words.

    I should have mentioned, those are 8 sales but not all are products related to my site so it's not a conversion rate calculation.

    It looks like 3 out of the 8 items are products relating to my site & the other 5 are just random products people have bought while on Amazon.

    Looking at my Amazon account it says I have a conversion rate of 9.30%

    That's the cool thing, people just seem to buy things when they get to Amazon through your affiliate link.

    I have another site working its way up the rankings & I have plans to build another site next month.

    I'm really starting to see the power of this now, if I have even a hand full of sites on page one I could be making sales every day. The income potential looks great!

    My main site which is sitting on page one of Google is targeting a keyword which has 5,500 exact match local searches per month. My site is also getting traffic from over 100 other keywords that I have not even optimised my site for.

    I hope to reach my income target some time next year.
