Amazon Sales on New Website!

Last Update: November 16, 2016

Basic Niche Website Does the Trick.

Awesome. I just checked out my amazon account for the first time in 2 weeks and found I had 9 new sales generated from a new niche website I am creating.

My 11 year old son is right into comic style books ... Big Nate, Tom Gates etc etc ( if you have pre teen kids you'll know about them). So we have been putting together a website that has reviews on the books that he has been reading.

Epic Kids Books

It has some brief reviews and articles that I have done and some that he has contributed plus biography of authors. Im in the process of finding a writer who can do the bulk of the content writing for me as I am a bit busy with other things. But I think this one will generate some cash flow.

Its still a work in progress but it has an amazon store on one page. That is the only monetising I had planned for it. It is mainly aimed at kids, so i don't want it to be stuffed with ads or distractions... just simple information.

Now my son wants to share the profits already, lol.

Hey this is great and I think it is really good to include your son, profit sharing or not. Kids are just like sponges, maybe he will learn enough over the next few years and support his post secondary education. My daughter (also WA member) is working closely with her 14 year who is working on a gaming site.

I have a question - how do you get around the question in Amazon Associates about not aiming the website to under 13-year-olds?
I'm just wondering, as I was wanting to create a "writing" site for kids, for thought I wasn't allowed...
Perhaps I misunderstood...?

Congratulations...have you thought about having your son write book reviews himself? Other kids would be drawn to another kids' point of view.

Ask a couple classrooms at a local school if the students can read books and write reviews for you. You can work with the teacher to set up a format that the kids can follow and they can read and get in their writing practice as well. I read your website for feedback and really liked the niche, but then again, I am a teacher of 10 year olds as well. (Student Guest Writers)

I love that idea. I had a chat to a teacher the other day about similar concept - enabling the kids to have their work published online under their own by-lines. Hope it works out. THanks heaps for the ideas and thoughts.
