I've been experimenting with social media/affiliate marketing for years now. However, just recently, I've began to use WP Zon Builder to build my first Amazon affiliate website. When all was said and done, I decided to upload a video (link below) and publish a blog post (link in signature) detailing the process, the costs, etc.

Well, it turns out that I've made 3 sales! I've received hundreds of unique page views, so people are definitely interested. I just wanted to share this success story with everyone. It's nothing huge, but these 3 sales alone have me motivated more than ever!

      Sure, you could look at it like that. But you can also ask yourself how many sales you've made. No offense. I'm just saying he tried and succeeded.

      He's a YouTube partner with over 70,000 subscribers. I'm sure being an Amazon affiliate is not his main source of income.

      Sorry, I should've worded myself better. I already sell a couple hundred items monthly on Amazon. I've been an affiliate with them for a while now. I was referring to my 3 sales of selling WP Zon Builder, which I just recently started promoting a week ago.

      His prior work of establishing his channel may be the reason he will now start making good money, and you are belittling that?

      He'll probably make a lot more sales now with his experience and effort and you'll probably be begging for a copy of his WSO in a few. lol

  • From how many people?

    Because you could have made those three sales from one person.

    And got those commissions from that one person.

    Essentially that's one sale, 3 items.

    Just seeking clarification.

    Congrats anyway, though - that's still a milestone.

    Hi,

    If anyone want's to try this, I just had a quick search. Rather than paying $99 for it, they have a special page set up to sell it for $39.

      Yes, because I'm just now beginning to focus on selling individual products. This came as a surprise to me since posting on here has motivated me to try new techniques.

      Edit: Either way you look at it, I enjoy sharing my positive experiences. Reading this thread alone could motivate a few people to try the same thing.

      Thank you! I've been on YouTube since the early days. What started as a hobby has turned into my "job." I really do enjoy it very much.

      Also, I want to apologize if I mislead anyone with my original thread title. I realize now that I should've worded myself better. But hey, it never hurts to share one's success story.

      If anyone has questions regarding being an Amazon affiliate or creating content on YouTube, I'm always open! Thanks for all the kind words.

      For this video I used the Canon T4i (650D in other countries) with the Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro. This kind of setup certainly isn't required, though. You'd be just fine with a camcorder and decent audio.

    Congrats on making those sales. The first few sales that you make online is the best feeling in the world.

    I see that you have a 0.5% conversion which should be anywhere between 1%-5%. Not bad but can be better.

    Just keep doing what you are doing right now and I am sure that you will see more and more sales as time goes by.
