This is my first post on this forum or anywhere whatsoever, reporting that I have earned something online. EVER.
I would just like to say this: THIS STUFF WORKS!
If you see the screenshot, 3 items shipped in 2 months only. If you say that this is nothing, please keep 3 things in mind:
1) I’ve never earned ANYTHING online, and this is the first time I see any commissions on any affiliate site I’ve ever registered to. So understand my joy.
2) I barely had any visitors to the sites (currently I have 2 of them). See, 2 of those sales came from click throughs of a site I abandoned last year like in May. Maybe around 20 unique visitors in total, about 4 click throughs, and 2 sales! Guys, I had ABANDONED this site!
DISCLAIMER: I'm working on the traffic for these sites. The one site I had abandoned I'll start working on it now lol, but the other one, I'm workin on the traffic/SEO as we speak =)
3) My sites are not even ranking on the first page for the keywords I'm targeting! So it's not like I expected much from all this.
The third sale, well I honestly don’t know where it came from. I love that about Amazon Oh and also, there is one sale that hasn’t shipped (happened 2 days ago), and that’s why it doesn’t appear there. But it’s appearing soon on my advertising fees =)
I haven’t had that much traffic on that third sale either. That was maybe the 6th or 7th REAL click through I’ve had on this new site I’m making. And my stats on Amazon are wrong cause I’ve been clicking through my items a lot to check them out, to finish writing the reviews or whatever (instead of using non-affiliate links), and that screw up my stats. Oh well. Won’t happen again.
So, guys. Internet Marketing WORKS! I’m very far from being a guru or someone who knows everything. I don’t even know how to do proper off-page SEO. I outsource it all. Maybe that’s a skill I should be looking to learn next…?
So anyways. I wanted to share this to encourage anyone still struggling, it’s been almost 3 years for me since I heard the phrase “make money from home”/”make money online/”internet marketing” in my life. And this is the first time I see something real. The feeling is indescribable. Can anyone relate?
Oh and one more thing: Amazon CONVERTS! I’m still amazed lol.
I’ll be gone for the afternoon today (US time), but at night I’ll be back and I'll be happy to answer any questions if there’s any (and if I can answer them haha), and any comments anyone wants to add I’ll read them all and reply to them (if it’s not too many =P).
Thanks Warriorforum, this is the place where I learned 80% of the stuff I know about making money online. Now, scale up, RINSE AND REPEAT!
