My Amazon Associate Account - The Story So Far
OK, here's a little update on the way things are going at Amazon. I've been an Amazon affiliate for a few years now, but I hadn't really pushed it on until I got involved with Wealthy Affiliate. I had mostly sold books, which as you know offer a very poor accumulation rate unless you're selling them by the truck load. I wasn't.
The two websites i'm working on at the moment are my main money-making one and my weather website. It's the latter that i'm now using to expand my Amazon Associate income and things are still small, but i've sold a few more weather stations this year. I'd just like to show you how last year and this year compare for affiliate commissions.
As you can see, although I got nearly 1,100 clicks, this resulted in only 21 orders and a value of £383.18 for a paid commission of £24.29. The CTR rate was down at 1.93%, with one returned item. Average revenue per ordered item was £18.25. The average commission value of each item ordered was therefore £1.16
This year i've managed nearly 1,200 clicks so far, with 38 items being sold to the value of £1,715.03 and with an average order revenue of £45.13 and average commission value of £2.47. CTR is 3.21% for 2019, which are all significant improvements.
This is clearly an improving picture, and hopefully my paid commission for the year will have topped £100 by the end of the year. (I'll update this 2019 chart at the end of the year).
I realise these are still very small numbers, but the important thing is they are getting better. My target for 2020 is to get CTR up to 5% and orders up past 50, with an average commision value of £5.00.
What do you think?
