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 Conversion 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 1,400 clicks, with 74 items being sold to the value of £2,596.73 and with an average order revenue of £35.09 and average commission value of £1.98. Conversion Rate is 5.36% for 2019, which are all significant improvements.
This is clearly an improving picture.
I realise these are still very small numbers, but the important thing is they are getting better. My target for 2020 is to keep the Conversion Rate up past 5% and orders up past 100, with an average commision value of £5.00.
What do you think?
