I've never really built affiliate sites which sold physical products, especially not through the amazon's affiliate program, but I've heard the comissions start as low as 4% or something, and don't climb much higher either?
That's weird, you know, I found a great keyword on which I'm certain I could have at least 1-2% conversion rate, but it has ~ 700 monthly searches (exact).
The products I want to promote are around $100, so that means approximately 7 sales a month, which (with 4% comission) would amount to... $28/month?
It's pretty obvious that I am missing something BIG here Is it the keyword I'm after? Too low search volume? Should I go for a niche where I could find more long tail keywords that would build the traffic to at least 2000 visitors/month?
And if I do get 2000 visitors per month with long tail keywords which won't have an amazing buyer intent to them, that will make me, what, $80/month?
How do you guys do it?
