I wrote 5 articles on Squidoo a bit over a year ago, and had no sales at all until June of this year. In fact, when I got my first check from Clickbank, I was shocked because I had forgotten all about it, having long ago written off article marketing as a waste of time. From June until about 3 weeks ago I was making regular sales (maybe 3-4 per week), averaging about $150 per month. I still have no idea why I made no sales for 9 months, and then suddenly, without doing anything, started making regular sales for 4 months.
Then 3 weeks ago, the sales stopped completely. I checked my traffic on the Squidoo lenses, and it is the same, if not slightly more. My Clickbank account is rated 'excellent.' I have no idea what the problem is; I'm not even sure what to check because I don't know too much about internet marketing.
The main reason I am concerned is because I had been planning on writing a book for kindle. However, when I started making sales off of just 5 articles, I decided instead to write maybe 50 Squidoo articles first. I just started writing them, but now I'm thinking maybe it would be a waste of time.
Thoughts? Thanks in advance.
