I am a newbie on affiliate marketing. I am trying to promote products of amazon since 2013 but i made only 8 sell. I was trying so many ways in my budget but i failed. But from the last week i am getting enough sell. So far i have made 19 sell within a week. Actually one of my ideas worked and i am making money from my sell. Please suggest me your ideas for making more money.

    Yeah! Well what are you selling? What niche are you in? Kind of hard to read what you are saying. Start building an email list ?

    Well done. Do more of that, and less of the other things you've tried.

    You can make a video in "youtube" regarding this product and link it into your website. As far as I know it is not allowed to put an affiliate link in you tube. The purpose of your website is to host the traffic you generate and forward them to Amazon via affiliate link.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks.

      Amazon is one of the lowest yielding affiliate programs there is. It also takes an eternity to get paid, and they're ban happy.

      You should test other affiliate offers in the same niche. Just try it for a few days, you have next to nothing to lose.

        It's actually one of the highest-yielding. It has one of the lowest commission-rates (which was perhaps what you intended to say?), but that certainly doesn't make it low-yielding. And that's among the reason why so many people here are making their full-time livings from it.

        Amazon's conversion-rates can be about the highest you'll ever find, in affiliate marketing. Everyone's heard of Amazon. That factor's huge.

        What would you rather earn: 7% commissions on a product with a 10% conversion-rate, or 50% commissions on a product of the same price with a 1% conversion-rate?

          Well my experience is that amazon is lower in conversions and payout. I mean conversion for site traffic, not from an affiliate link click. It's worse in every way (except for November/December, then it's worth it). And then you have to wait 90 days to get paid.

          What would you rather earn: 7% commissions on a product with a 10% conversion-rate, or 50% commissions on a product of the same price with a 1% conversion-rate?
          For amazon UK you max payout is £7, or about $10.50. When you sell a $1000 laptop and get 1% comms, and you only get that because you were lucky and they bought within the 24 hour cookie period, and they searched for a physical product on Google, and not on Amazon itself... well, I wasn't happy with it and I'm glad I don't do amazon anymore. If a non-US person does amazon.com they gotta wait even longer for a cheque, and then get hammered with bank/conversion fees too.

          I like to make $1-$4 per Search visitor. Good luck doing that with amazon (outside of the holiday period), and even if you did it wouldn't matter because of the low traffic you'll be getting with amazon sites.

          Yeah you're right, everyone has heard of Amazon, that's why people go there direct instead of using search engines at all.
          Let's not forget that every affiliate also starts with Amazon, so more competition for low paying keywords.

          Also amazon SEO is extremely tough because has very low SERP CTR because Google will put 16+ ads, many with images and prices. Having #1 spot and getting 9% CTR really hurts.

            Sure: nobody's putting too much effort into promoting that, are they?

            That's just a "UK anomaly", though.

            I don't use search-engine traffic.

            For me, search-engine traffic is hopeless, for affiliate marketing.

            Search-engine traffic just "really hurts" - period.

            These are visitors who typically don't view many pages of my sites, don't often opt in, and almost never buy anything at all.

            If you're using SEO and search-engine traffic, I entirely understand your not wanting to do Amazon affiliate marketing. I wouldn't, either.

              Great to hear you are starting to make sales! Try & reinvest some of your profit into scaling up your traffic.

              Also don't rely on 1 income stream because if you have 2 or 3 different ones & one dries up you still have money coming in.

              Residual income streams are best as they give you time freedom to enjoy your life.

              Cheers
              Barry

              Oh right, well if you're not doing SEO then we're talking about apples and oranges lol.

              My life revolves around links and rankings so I forgot that not every body affiliate marketing that way.

              Still though, if you're doing PPC or social how is the ROI? I can't get my head around doing paid traffic for Amazon, how are you generating traffic? I mean generally, not asking for a secret formula

    Well if you have found something that works for you, then you should keep on doing that imo.

    Perhaps you can use the same method to promote more products other than amazon. If you can make one sale then you can make a lot of sales.

  • The secret in making big money from affiliate marketing is not from low ticket affiliate offers but from high ticket affiliates.

    For example, if your goal is to go across america from new york to california and chose the lowest means of transportation which is to walk, it will eventually happen but you will look like forrest gump after a few years.

    Now If you have lets say a bike, a car then upgrade to a jet, how long will it take to reach your goal?

    Low ticket affiliate without a system setup of list building is like going cross country on foot, while having a follow up system setup to your list, offering OTO redirect in your custom funnel from initial optins is like using a bike, car to your travel.

    Finally nurturing your list and promoting your high affiliate product to them is taking that jet to your travel.

    In conclusion, you are on a great start and congratz, now its time to tighten up your shoe lace and choose this for the long haul and not just as a one night stand

    Set your system up, low ticket at front and high ticket at backend, grab a mentor that has proven income and success and get to work

  • My suggestion would be to keep doing what ever is was that started to yield results. track where the converting traffic is coming from and continue to give them what they want. You should be capturing emails and building a list. People beat this term into the ground but its the truth, the money is in the list

    To get a handful of income with amazon, you must sell a lot of products each day. Have targets and try to achieve them. Amazon converts very well and with the right amount of traffic, income will flow in. Keep thinking different and unique to attract traffic.

    Pump more advertising into it. Either that or hire a team of content marketers to produce content for you on a daily basis. Just expound on the things that you're doing now to get more results. It's simple man. But i'm sure you're going to find out what works for you. Good luck man and congrats!

    To Iamgoutam,

    It seems you are from India. Am I right? If you are targeting local traffic you may use flipkarts affiliate program. Rates are similar to that of amazon and it has got its authority here at India. As per amazon is concerned it may take some time for general Indian buyers to fully accept it.

      Buddy Flipkart doesn't pay and scrubs a lot of your sales. Amazon never does that. They are a nightmare

    It's difficult to suggest a technique, when I don't know what methods you are using now. Are you using article marketing to drive traffic to your affiliate blogs or sites? Are you ranking via SEO? Are you using Facebook ads? Any of these ideas could work for you, if you are not using them now. But as everyone else has said, just do more of what worked for you so far.

    19 in a week sounds impressive, I think what you need is just more consistency. Just put up more ads, ppc etc to get more traffic. Paid traffic works too. You just need more accurate traffic to get your sales up.

    just multiply what you are doing it is just a numbers game. you are making sales great!, what ever you did to make those sales do it again at a larger scale. example if you sales came from posting in one forum or two, go post in 10 forums of the same type.

    You can use Pinterest and other sharing sites to get target traffic. You may try to make video about the product, upload it to YouTube, and then Pin it to Pinterest , and share it on Clipboard. Make a document for the product and share it on Scribd. Use proper title, tags, description and link to your site or amazon product page! Good luck!

    Your target is very low. It is not impossible to anyone, if you wish to earn this amount, it does not matter. It need to increase you traffic. Anyway you must increase your site traffic. There is no except way without traffic. So you can do some Social media marketing, SEO, Forum posting, Bank linking or something like these.
