My First Amazon Cheque :)

Ok,

So in light of all the others I thought I would throw mine in too.

I've been promoting Amazon stuff for 4 or 5 months now, not heavily as I make the majority of my income doing stuff for clients etc... but I've been seeing some nice sales on a couple amazon sites and this is enough to make me want to really put some focused work into it.

Just got my first cheque for $600 in the mail I set my payment limit to $550 before they issued a cheque because I'm in Canada and I didn't want to pay a $15 charge on a $100 cheque but it turns out if you live outside of the states they don't charge the fee anyways! Good deal.

So after a few months and a little work setting up a few sites and promoting them a bit, $600. I'm HAPPY! And will definitely be putting more of a focus into new Amazon sites from here on out!

    Great News!

    More testimonials are always good for everyone here to really get that motivational spark!

    You should move further into the niches that are converting the best for you already

    I'm a recent graduate to first-time income, so I commend you, what a great feeling!!

    Continued success and I'm sure you have given other Amazon affiliates (including me) motivation to keep working at their promotions/sites.

    Well done!

  • It would be interesting to see the ROI that Amazon gets from Affiliates. Imagine the money you could make if they actually had a 30 day cookie.

    Amazon is an excellent way to make money.

    I've had numerous sites that are promoting
    amazon affiliate offers and I can tell you that
    they are doing better than ever.

    Congrats. That is awesome! Amazon takes a while to get figured out (only from the marketing standpoint) but it is great once it gets up and rolling!

    Congrats!!

    Now just rinse and repeat

    Very important tip: Make sure to KEEP NOTES along the way of what's working and what's not working. That way you can always go back to your notes.

    It's always great when you get your first paycheck. Although not a paycheck. I remember getting my first payout from google adsense. It paid for my registration on my truck.

    Let's raise our glasses to many more checks.

    Awesome work on taking action and reaping the rewards.

    You know A LOT of this stuff is just following through on something and not expecting to see immediate results.

    Good for you!
