Over 500 clicks to amazon and finally my first sale!

10 replies
The other day I posted in a thread that I'd sent over 400 clicks through to Amazon as an affiliate and hadn't made a single conversion. Not even an unrelated sale. A couple of posters even commented that I'd had the worst luck with conversions they'd ever heard of.

This week I hit 500 unique visitors without a sale.

I was beginning to think that there must have been something wrong with my account and quite honestly, after 3 months of hard work without any results I was starting to lose heart.

I just logged in to find a modest commission from my first sale! I promised myself I wouldn't start a thread about it when it finally happened but I'm actually a lot more excited than I thought I would be.

Just seeing the money there completely changed my mindset. Everything I've been doing seems so much more worthwhile now that there's proof that it works.

Time to get back to work!

    Ok, congrats. I started with few products, got 13 visits on that page, only 1 traffic reached amazon that did not convert. For last few days, there is no more traffic. And my lens rank is now going down, down, down. Am i cursed?

    Yes, i have only 1 lens! Nothing else. What are my sins?

  • Lets hope for your sake it was just a run of bad luck, or maybe the keywords you rank for just aren't good for conversions.

    The first would be most desirable

    So your conversion rate is 0.2%

    Now its a matter of bringing that up.

      According to the probability theory, if you had the worst luck, now it should be the greatest luck.
      Congrats, mate!
