Just curious for those of you that have been using review sights to funnel amazon affiliate commissions for a while now, what does each site average a month in income for you? obviously sites that higher priced items will have higher commissions but may move less volume whereas it may be the other way around with lower priced items. they may have a smaller commission but, they may sell more in general

what does you lowest income site generate? what about you highest? im not asking for any niche secrets or anything. just curious on what the average amazon product review site can average in monthly income after it has ranked. I may be mistaken here but I want to say at one point Jan Roos had said the low end average is $100-200/month/site (forgive me if I am wrong, Jan!)

    I would say that's about right. My lower income sites average about $150 a month.

    My best Amazon site makes about $500 a month. Still not great compared to my other affiliate sites (Clickbank, Markethealth etc), but I haven't been doing Amazon that long and the commissions are low.

    A few of my sites are geared towards Christmas (toys, gifts etc) so I'm expecting an increase in income over the Christmas period.

      Thank you for the reply. Sounds like you have some well set up amazon sites if they range from around 150/month to around 500/month

      can I ask how many amazon sites you have? I am assuming they are seperate from your clickbank and markethealth sites? Maybe I am wrong
      are your amazon sites set up as review sites?

      Sorry for all the questions. Just a newbie here trying to learn and soak up as much knowledge as i possibly can.

      Thanks for your patience

        I have about 20 Amazon sites, and yes, they're separate from my Clickbank and Markethealth sites.

        Not all of those are earning yet (some are very new), but I have a few of them geared specifically towards Christmas so I'm hoping for a big income increase coming up to the holiday season.

        They're set up as review sites - some are single product review sites, others are multi product review sites (reviewing 4-7 products in one particular niche).

        I just make sure to write long, detailed reviews that are genuinely helpful to the reader. I use videos (that I find on Youtube), images, step by step instructions - whatever it takes to impart as much knowledge as possible.

          Wow. glad to hear it. I am trying my best to start a system that will ensure my success in Amazon as well. I was very inspired by the recent interview Jan Roos did on a webinar where he said he is trying to build 100 sites before xmas this year. I may be an overzealous newbie but I have decided to try and do the same thing.

          I have been putting a lot of time into my sites and they are starting to look extremely professional. especially when compared to some of the other amazon review sites i have run across while doing research for mine.

          Most of the ones i see look so plain and boring and just thrown together. most of them still have the default wordpress picture still in the banner. NOT very attractive. I like to think that if this is what some of the competition looks like and they still rank, then I may have a slight leg up by making mine look good.

          Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I wish you nothing but the best of luck this year with the upcoming christmas season for you and your sites.

          It really depends on how much effort you're willing to put into each site. You can make as little as 20 per month all the way to 500+. Focus on keyword research, perfect on-page seo, excellent content and high quality backlinks.

          I love software submissions, edu blog comments, video submissions, build my rank, and finally another great source of traffic is niche specific forums. These are a goldmine!! Focus on making helpful comments for like a month or so and then drop your link on the forum. This is powerful!! I made $300 last month from 1 site just doing this tactic alone...

            It's not really necessary to wait for your sites to rank for them to generate revenue. Consider article marketing to relevant outlets including article directories, websites, blogs, ezines, and offline marketing such as magazines, trade journals, newspapers as well as online/offline media buying. There are quite a few Amazon affiliates earning 5-6 figures per month using these and other proactive marketing techniques.

      Hey marucho, very nice numbers!

      I have multiple sites that WERE averaging $100+/month, but unfortunately, I'm in one of the states that has a governor who signed a tax nexus bill, so Amazon terminated all affiliates in my state.

      Fortunately, I'm learning more about how to get around this legally, but it will take some doing & I may need to start from scratch with Amazon.

    Your right about most Amazon sites looking rubbish. I've had some banners designed on Fiverr and they are very professional. Makes a world of difference to the look of the site.

    I was going to have 50 sites built this year, but then I realised how much time and effort has to go into promoting the sites, then keeping the plugins up-to-date, etc.. so I decided to opt only for 25 sites instead.

        Good luck. Keep us updated with your progress. They won't all be winners, but the ones that are could pull you in some serious coin. I earned about $40 yesterday from just 2 sites, although i have about 15 sites.

        Are you doing all the work yourself or are you outsourcing some?

    My favourite site makes about an average of $50 per month.

    Doesn't sound like much, but the thing is I spent probably 4 hours in total on it (not counting some minor SEO.) Not a bad hourly rate.

    Someone reporting how much their websites make doesn't really tell you a lot. There are a lot of underlying factors: how good you are at finding keywords, how much work you're willing to (and DO) put into the site, how good you are at promoting the site, etc.

    Not to insult Jan Roos, but I've noticed a LOT of people using (or copying) his technique, almost verbatim right down to the meta tags. I feel like these types of sites don't add much value and are probably a ticking timebomb that will go the way of old-style xfactor sites. I haven't seen a single one in this style that has been anything but an ultra-thin affiliate site, which Google is actively trying to eliminate from their search results.

    A goal of creating 100 of those websites in 6 months (end of the year) makes it very obvious that they are going to be garbage quality. Not to mention that if you're a newbie to SEO, you're simply not going to be able to SEO 100 websites properly.

    My 2 cents would be this: instead of creating 100 crappy websites, take the time to learn SEO and create 10 really good, quality ones.

    Up to you, though.

      I completely agree, good SEO is hard to come by, but presentation is where it is at when getting conversions.

      Hamidah is right when they say to write long articles, and I would say, go for one niche, SEO it to death, speak in the online communities and drop your links.

      The Question is why should I take your word for something?

      Making 1 really well thought out, well designed, well SEO'd site, will be worth it's weight. You do not want just any links! You want converting links, so leave social bookmarking out of it....(yes i said it.) Only "bookmark" on groups that are interested in the product...support forums, comments and ratings. Fill out your profiles, follow the right people, Company News, Consumer Reports, etc, and tweet, create a facebook fan page for your website, make it as legit as possible, GIVE BAD REVIEWS, because you need to give people a reason to trust you. CREDIBILITY IS EVERYTHING if you say a product is good, and someone finds that product good, they will come back for more reviews. So choose products you can honestly review both good and bad.


      Also when you review, establish a favorite, a bench mark that other products need to stand up too...establish a rating system, etc.

      So I bet you might be wondering how much I make a month yah?

      Nothing.

      Honestly, I do not have an Amazon site, but I am definitely thinking of making one after reading this....too bad I am lazy =/

      Moral...don't be like me....if you want success, it takes hard work....

        This is something I think everyone should read. While I totally agree with what you said as far as it being good for credibility, there's another reason, too:

        When I first started doing my affiliate websites, I made every review as positive as possible, conveniently leaving out the bad aspects in hopes that it would save a conversion.

        The truth is, that's such a bad way to do it. Why would you want to trick people into buying something that sucks? Think about it for a minute: there's a real, living person on the other end of that commission. It's all fine and dandy to make your $5, but is it worth screwing someone over for it?

        Write helpful and informative reviews. If you review an electric heater that has reports of causing house fires, let people know that! Don't try to spin it to get the conversion. Chances are they will skip on the fire-causing one and read your other reviews - and you'll probably get a conversion elsewhere.

        Or maybe I just have the wrong outlook to be a successful businessman. :confused:

          No Matt, I think you have the right attitude. If you balance the positive reviews with warnings about 'dodgy stuff', your readers are much more likely
          to trust you, which builds rappor, credibility, and eventually long term business.

          It can backfire sometimes though. I wrote a review about a well known guru recently, and 'dared' to point out that there were weaknesses that were needed, and how his products didn't work for certain specific people.

          I actuallt received abuse and threats from a few of his fans! I'm sure that if he knew, he'd be mortified.

          Let the others make a few quick bucks. Bide your time to ensure a good long term income, built on honesty.

          Agreed. All on counts, minus the part about you having the wrong outlook, of course! haha! You've got it right my friend. Be honest and trustworthy. And do that not because of business, but because you should. You will also see long-term dividends in business because of it, though.

      Garbage compared to what? Like I said, so far mine look better than 90% of the amazon review sites I have come across so far. They have more information and the layout looks more professional. I am putting a lot of hours into these sites, not just throwing them together. I plan on tweaking them and adding more content after I launch them as well. Yes, I am a newbie at SEO but I am learning a lot very quickly and will apply it to each site as I learn more. To say my sites are garbage without seeing them sounds a little harsh. Saying it will take a while to rank them while still learning SEO, that may be a little more truthful

        I didn't mean anything personally, so I apologize if you took it that way. I'm just saying, to make 100 sites in 6 months gives you less than 2 days per site, each - including keyword and product research, site design, article writing, SEO, etc - not to mention learning how to do all of these things properly. Even a seasoned affiliate can't make 100 quality sites on their own in 6 months; I'm certain Jan Roos is using heavy outsorcing if he's really trying to do this. There's simply not enough time to do it on your own unless you're doing rails of coke off of the keyboard between blog posts. :p

        You need to learn to walk before you can run. Make a few sites, get an idea of how to do things, and then expand. I've been doing this since last November and I'm still figuring things out as I go. Trying to make 100 sites is just going to burn you out and accomplish nothing.

          I agree.

          I'm still tweaking and improving my main site. Imagine what a pain in the ass it would be to have to go back and tweak 100 sites once you realise there's something you did wrong or could have done better.

          Perfect your system before scaling up.

    what does you lowest income site generate? what about you highest? im not asking for any niche secrets or anything. just curious on what the average amazon product review site can average in monthly income after it has ranked. I may be mistaken here but I want to say at one point Jan Roos had said the low end average is $100-200/month/site (forgive me if I am wrong, Jan!)
    Isn't this a little like asking how long is a piece of string? I would say the range is $0 to a hell of a lot.

    I was just sitting here reading this thread. I don't understand why we don't figure out how to do a coup and pool our resources together(we all have talents and know how to do stuff that others don't and vice versa). I've thought about this for a while. I have 12 Amazon review sites, 2 have made sales here and there. But being one person and trying to mange, content, backlinking, keyword research, forum marketing, even trying to find outsourcers and manage that process etc., is bound to drive one insane and I imagine we all face the same challenges. Even though I have 12 up. I still only am able to focus on 1 to 2 per week or even for the month just to make sure those to produce.

    What a group of 5 people came together here, that a working in this space, and for 1 day we all use our different skill sets to 1 of those 5 site. Maybe someone enjoys

    writing content, while another is good at
    forum marketing, while another knows what works well for
    backlinking - maybe some provides article marketing while another enjoys building web 2.0
    on and on..

    just an idea.. but those 5 people working would get their own site worked on once per week.. for lets say a month, in a concentrated focus effort to help that site pop. Your site would get worked on each week for 4 weeks.. new content added(review), new backlinks added, expanded forum presence etc.,

    So what's the pay-off, for those 4 weeks, once per week your site is getting much more focused efforts applied toward it or on it to help that site increase it's ranking and earning potential.

    maybe this a ridiculous idea? I am interested to hear others opinions. Why this would or wouldn't work etc.,

    cheers,

    ej

      Actually, I think yours is a great idea...

      BUT - one would have to be very careful about who you work with, it is very easy for one person to land up doing the bulk of the work, even though it might not be intentional.

      You would probably need to create an affiliate account especially for the group, as well as a method of splitting and receiving the income.

      It could turn out to be a logistical nightmare and/or a major winner.

      Then again, since nothing is impossible, a little homework might not go amiss.

        That´s really hard to say. My finding has been that the income per site varies vastly due to customers buying ll sorts of things I do not even advertise.

        They hop over to Amazon, following one of my affiliate links and go surfing over there for what not. I have seen customers end up buying music CDs or books while my advertisement was about ... say... air mattresses....

        In that, there is little projecing and estimating into the future with regards to upcoming sales.

        Sandy want to talk more, away from this thread.. I am gathering a group of people like you and me that get it and want to participate, lets brainstorm and see where this goes. I am game to make it happen. There are management platforms were we would be required to put in, lets call it a daily report so work can be verified. So that's not far from being possible.

        But I think we would have to adopt an open source mentality, where we all benefit not by cash from what one website produces, but benefit because our own sites are flourishing because everyone is participating in the same way. Showing up to help each site in the "collective" reach it's potential.

          PM me - Lets see if we can make something innovative happen. If one doesnt at least try then you will definitely be doomed to failure ...

    I've found that with over 20 sites, my range has fallen around $100-$200 per site per month. Summertime tends to be on the lower end and holiday shopping time tends to be on the higher end.
