Just when I lost the hope, I MADE MONEY!!

30 replies
Hey Warriors

Been a good day today.

I had created my first Amazon review site a few weeks ago. In the time, I got lots of traffic, because I worked my arse off for it. But, I didn't make a cent out of it.

Yesterday, I though of scraping the site, and moving ton to a new niche.

Today, when I checked my Amazon Associates account, I HAD MADE SALES! A great morale booster for me!!

LESSON: Making money takes time, and work. You cannot expect to make money tomorrow, when you create a site today!

Best of luck.

Karan

    Thank you - I'm in the same situation. I’m really going for it but no sales yet. I think the worst time in IM must be when you’re really taking action but not seeing anything. 85% of people who buy IM products never take any action but the ones that do seem to make it. Fingers crossed and praying to the Google God. J

    I was 100% the same.

    I was already losing my motivation and hope... and that suddenly BANG! Money started flowing in!

    It was really an amazing moment... But don't forget to keep going! It is the key to success.

    What you do every single day makes you special

    It is normal for Amazon review sites to flow money few weeks after creation.

    Congratulations Karan.

    It took me approximately 2 weeks to begin earning with Amazon and have since hit my stride. Nowhere near enough to live off, but a good bit of money on the side.

    Nice one, mate. That's the way it goes sometimes; just when you are about to pull the hair out of your skull, you start seeing positive results. This is much needed sometimes as a sort of confirmation that what you are doing can and will start yielding some results and is not a complete waste of your time. Congrats.

    Karan, you wouldn't know when the sales would come. It is nice that you kept the site.

    Plan + Work + Patience = Success/Sales/Money

    Now, I am sure that you will work harder on that site to generate more sales.

    The two most powerful warriors are patience and time. After all the hardwork patience and time (waiting) are the last things that can make you achieve success. Congrats that you made it and thank you for being an inspiration to all of us here!

    Congrats.

    Being successful is like punching a hole in a concrete wall: you have to be determined. It's easy to get down when things aren't going well, but remember - usually, success is just around the corner.

              Congrats on your success w/Amazon Karan!
              This just goes to show that w/a little patience, good things come to those who wait! ;-)

              If you don't mind, I've got a few quick questions about the product(s) you're promoting:

              1. What's the retail price?
              2. Did you structure your reviews around a certain format and if so, would you be willing to elaborate on what that structure is?

              Thanks,


              Ray

                Ray.

                1. The retail price is about $200 for one product, $350 for another, and $215 for the third one. But, I didn't make sales on these products.
                2. My site basically is around the method shared by someone in the War Room. Sorry, I don't remember the name of the person or thread, but you can look in there to find the thread.

                  Karan:

                  Thanks for the quick response!

                  So, seeing as you didn't make any sales on the high-ticket prices you mentioned, then what was the price point on the products you did make sales on? Is it safe to assume that whatever it was, it's was still a pretty high-priced item?

                  I'll scour the WSO section to see if I can hopefully come across the method you incorporated into your business...might you happen to remember the title of the WSO by chance? If not, no worries!

                  Cheers,

                    Nah. It was a $29 accessory for the product I'm promoting.

                    Here's what happened: The visitor came to my site, clicked on my Amazon link, didn't like the main product but was interested in buying something related to it. So, he bought an accessory.

                    And I found out the thread for you:
                    http://www.warriorforum.com/war-room...ase-study.html

                    Enjoy!

    Thanks for motivating us, I'm currently in that position. Top ten google SERP with buyer keyword but still no sales from amazon affiliate just decent click from adsense. Yesterday I almost lost of power to continue my niche. Since I know the most of IM had the same experience so I have to keep move on.
