Amazon associates success story | I made $1660 this December

58 replies

It's been a long time since I was as disappointed in Amazon associate program. I joined them in early February and I've tried almost everything i can think of!

It takes around 3 months for me to get my first sale. It's a Compton Cap and I got just $0.36. I've no idea from where it really converts, after a little bit of research I found one of my yahoo answers were ranked top on Google.

After 5 more sales everything stop counting, it didn't return any profits. So I stopped login to my account either.

There-after I'm up to CPA and struggle for some time to learn the ins and outs. I thought it was the perfect way to generate easy money. I've earned 70 bucks promoting Maxbounty offers using Adwords and Facebook fan pages.

Then all of a sudden both my Adwords and Adsense accounts were banned, not only that, one of my highly converting FB page was deleted at the same damn day. The biggest problem I've ever had is not to have a CC and also there are PayPal restrictions for my country.

I've tried some new techniques with Amazon along my way of CPA stuff. I've received the Amazon monthly report email as usual, I logged after a long run just to see what's inside.

I was surprised when my Amazon affiliate account showing about $150 revenues. I recall my memories to remember what actually happened.

So I litteraly rinsed an repeated, and ended up making $270 in November. Thus far in December I've earned $1660, however since it is only December 13 I hope I will earn more than this for the entire month.

My strategy is to not to give-up easily..

    What are you promoting? $1660 so far from Amazon is great IMO. Could you share a little about how you set up your sites, keyword research, etc? How did you choose products to promote? More infor would be much appreciated, as Amazon seems to be a site that I just can't seem to crack...

    Well done, now you should stop anything else and milk the method that made you money to the end before you look for something else. Also you can make a new IM product from your method and sell it.

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    98% of my income comes from one source. I can't find any one using the same modest operandi yet, I mean no one seems doing it in the right way.

    I just made the surfer to click on my link, that's all!

    I run all types of offers and made advertising fees from almost every niche . The method is little tricky, but I still doubt if it would be a constant way to keep the earnings steady. So I'm working hard to recruit other sources. I'm no expert and have just petty experience.

    Actually, I won't be able to explain the exact thing due to the nature of this method. I never ever thought I'd have opportunity to share a success story here

    Funny thing is I used to feel the same way about Amazon. I would get some months with just $100 a time and then it suddenly took off a couple of months ago.

    I have a uk one for uk niche sites and a usa one and the usa one does the best. Its all about finding the right product and marketing it.

    Q: Can I have two adwords accounts that use the same CC?
    A: If you choose Prepay Billing (Automatic Payment) Option, you can create multi-accounts with only 1 credit card to redeem many Voucher codes. That's great!

    Q: How to use the coupon code with manual payments?
    A: When you try to use Coupon Code choosing the manual payments you won't need to enter the CC, the fees for the activation of AdWords account will be charged from promotional code.

    Q: Can I use these coupons world wide?
    A: Yes the coupons are used worldwide. (except china)

    1210 sales is a lot. It's just a shame that the commissions are so low. I've always been put off by this.

        Only one site, As I said (hah! get it?) earlier, it's not just posting a product review on a blog. What is important to remember is: what works for me may not work for you.


        This month was really good for me. I got my first SEO freelance job $100 worth and it was about bringing SERP from #6 to #1, I took the risk and finally achieve the goal within 2 weeks. Client invited me for another project, as it is lot more time consuming I must decline.

        I just want to convey that Amazon is not the only thing, think out of the box and you'll find your way to success...
