I am excited to announce that my sister and I have hit the $500 mark in affiliate sales for one month! YAY!

These are all amazon commissions, and I have to say, that I love being an Amazon affiliate. Once you get decent traffic and are leading people to Amazon, you will make commissions.

My review pages make sales because I am seeing sales for items I am promoting, but I also get the bonus of other purchases people are making, like for car seats, or running shoes.

My sister and I have recently started a new site called The Best Organic Lifestyle, where we will link to Amazon for expensive products. We are hoping to be at our goal of full-time incomes by this time next year.

Thanks to everyone at WA for all of your help.

I have one confession....I haven't finished the training yet (gasp!) I should probably get on that.

Congratulations Andrea and Maria! As I only just recently hit this same milestone I can attest to the awesome sense of accomplishment it brings!

Amazon is a no-brainer for affiliate marketers and I'm no expert but perhaps try looking into other programs as well. Many offer more than the 4-8% that Amazon delivers.

Keep Kicking @$$!

Scale it up now, eh?

Do more of the stuff that you know works and do NONE of the stuff you know fails. And keep trying new things on top of that too, like finishing the training as you mentioned.

But what do I know? I'm nowhere near your milestone yet. What advice would u give to me and others in my shoes?

I've yet to get to level 3 in bootcamp. I hover and repeat!

Congrat you bloomin' lations!!!
