YIPPEEE! JUST MADE MY FIRST $ !!!!

Last Update: August 28, 2012
Well there I was just casually checking my Amazon affiliate account when I suddenly realized that there are $1.81 commissions!! Excitement!! This may not seem a lot to some, and actually it isn't a lot of money but the motivation that it has just given me is worth a million dollars!!

Also the site it was made from is pretty new and doesn't get a lot of traffic yet, so I feel this is just the beginning ;)

Thanks for listening to my over excited rant! And happy IM'ing to y'all!

Lol, we have a national shortage of Marmite in New Zealand due to the factory that produces it has been damaged… and the UK stuff is banned due to trademark stuff. It's been making headlines for months, yep we have no news here :-). Massive congrats on your sale Hani! Mark.

Hey thanks Mark! So you can send all the New Zealand Marmite fans to my site then!

Hahahahaha - so you must be British then to even know if to love it or hate it! Actually haven't done much at all with that site, that's why i was even more surprised :)

It's not over excited at all. my first commission was something like $0.32 if I remember correctly. The important part is not you know it's possible so you will keep moving forward and earn more and more.

Congratulation! it's a wonderful feeling isn't it.

Hani Premium
Sure is! I'm really going to knuckle down to this now. I need to make it a top priority. thanks Ty!

Hey Cham, yes it has been a long time. I've been learning here and there from the training but I was too busy with all of my kids home for the summer holidays to do anything else! Just getting back into this now though. I missed it! How are you doing?

It's great! Like you, there was a time when I was also busy but I came back to redo many of my sites last year. I'm happy to see you again and I wish you more success!

With Amazon aiming to do next day shipping across the board, we can expect the Amazon Associates program to only scale further upward.

I have a question that I do not seem to find the answer to in any of the older blogs. What if you find a list of keywords (approx. 20) on a specific niche. Do you chose the keyword with the least number of competing sites and higher number of traffic? I'm just not sure how one goes about deciding which of the keywords to select in order to rank on the first page of google. Sorry, I'm a newbie and still trying to get the hang of this.

Yes, you got it cynthiam68! the low hanging fruit should be a qsr of below 100. Wishing you lots of luck and fun!
