Month 6 is in the books and I'm happy with the way things are going. I had over 500 sales and $2200 in commissions from Amazon in January. That came from 14,000 clicks.
I wrote a ton of content to reach these numbers (about 75 articles since August, 1500 words or more each). I focus on best of lists with the year in them. I'm excited because it just turned to 2017 so that means a whole bunch of new keywords and articles to write.
In case anyone is wondering here's what I made in previous months:
1st month (August): $1
2nd month (September): $20
3rd month (October): $60
4th month (November): $120
5th month (December): $1350
6th month (January) $2200
As you can see things just kind of took off at the 5th month mark. I really hope you take my "2017 keyword" strategy - I gurantee you won't regret it. If you want to read more about these keywords read these articles (they changed my life and how I look at seo):
I'm hoping by the summer to be up to 5k a month so we'll see if it happens!
