Could someone help me out please?

Last Update: February 12, 2016

I have been and Amazon associate for a while and have not made a sale with them. They have sent me an email saying that unless I make a sale, they are going to close my account. Nobody is buying anything through my website and amazon is not happy.


Could someone help me please by buying something through amazon on my site so they don't close my account? I think that if you click on an amazon link, you can then buy whatever you want so you if the products on my page don't look like something that would benefit you, you could buy anything that would help you.


This is the page on my site that has the amazon links on it:

Thank you for helping me out,

Dave

You will have to sell an awful lot of product at $30 to make any money on Amazon. Your website has to convince me your product is a heck of a lot better than the fish oil I buy at COSTCO. Supplements are a super competitive product. Re think how you are trying to monetize your niche.

Well, it is not just like the standard fish oils you buy from supermarkets, this one is a whole lot better! It is in a league of it's own. I personally use to reverse tooth decay, and so does my wife.

What do you think I could do better to promote my site?

I had a friend buy something when my time was up and Amazon closed my account anyway because they did not like something on my website (a logo I thought I used correctly). They review your website after your first sale is made. If you are concerned about the process, call them. They actually take calls and answer questions. Their TN is on the assoc. page. ~Gina

I know there a heap better ones then amazon Loes, ones that pay higher commission and just all around better, I just wanted to keep that avenue open as they sell just so many products.

I know what you mean, it's awfully nice they send you a mail, I was just thrown out of 2 without any warning and found a couple of not working banners on my website

Thanks Kari, just followed the initial training by Kyle that got me to sign up to amazon, but my understanding of them is that are not that good in terms of how much commission you get paid.

It is the end of the world for his site, it is based on products which he promotes. If he remove Amazon products he has no site.

There are other (and better) affiliate programs out there. He can sign on with Amazon again at any time. His niche is one that has a lot of value as an informative resource.

Do you mean my site?

I have other affiliate programs that sell the same product.

Hi Dave,
Even if they close your account you can open a new one. Not sure what the wait time is. I think you just need to reapply but indicate that you are getting more traffic.

They did this to me in my first 6 months. So I forgot about them for a while and then reapplied after I was getting about 5K/mo to my site.

You can get your friends to buy as well, but not family members, they'll catch you on that.

I don't shop on Amazon, so can't help. But hope this helps.

Best,
Todd
