It's not often I ask for any product review or Amazon advice, since I usually know anything there is to know about it.
But recently I've given traffic brokers another go because I want to keep adding to traffic sources. I've gone through a few and I've finally found a profitable traffic broker whose traffic converts between 1.5-2% by direct linking to the Amazon store front. Put it this way, at their prices for £600 I could make anywhere from £1000 to £8000 (depending on the commission of the products sold), I'd say I'd average roughly £3000-4000, and that's after sending a considerable amount of traffic.
It then hit me that this traffic is generated from being displayed to visitors as a pop-up, pop-under, via an in-line frame, or directly in a visitor's web browser.
I'm guessing they are illegal practices according to Amazon, but could anyone chime in just incase
I reckon the conversion rate could be higher if I instead sent them to a one page wordpress site that displays:
Get the Cheapest Prices By Shopping At Amazon:
Home & Garden(this is a link to general Home & Garden page)
Here either the sub directories or product types so:
Food Processors, Espresso Machines, Mixers, Kettles, add more, add more, add more, add more, see all
All links to the page with all product sorted by highest rated/most popular to lowest.
Do that for all Amazon sections, so that people have a choice in which area they want to shop.
Below a list of Deals and Discounts for the day, using a few plugins to make them interact. I reckon if I get them to click the specific area they want, they'll be more likely to purchase.
And those that aren't interested will just leave. I can't send them to my review site because it's not big enough with enough diversity yet plus the traffic is based on shopping, not consumer reviews.
I'll give that a go, because the traffic converts, but I wanted someone to chime in about the direct approach anyway
- PS. For those who wonder where I test traffic n find em from I'll be doing a budget product review site service soon based on wordpress with traffic building tips! (if you have a problem with this little promo admin or mods let me know or just edit it out )
