Rejected by Amazon after 180 days!

Last Update: August 15, 2017

Hi Guys

Today I received a rather disappointing email from Amazon andhere is what it said:

As you can imagine by heart sank slightly reading this and Ithought that it was incredible that in 6 months no one clicked my homepageAmazon link and never bought a single item, not even $1.

Considering the amount of traffic (about 5000 visitors permonth) going thorough my website I never predicted this dismal result.

There is a lesson here for everyone because it's not a good ideato apply with Amazon until your website has significant traffic which I thoughtI had but clearly not!

I have seen people here on WA offering to buy through othermembers Amazon link to help each other this way but I was always too late!Someone always beet me to the request! lol :p

Lesson learned and I'm not quite sure when to apply again, whenI reach 10 000 visitors or 100 000? Not sure but I hope this article helpsothers not to rush with their Amazon Associates profiles.

Back to the drawing board for me again! :p

Kind regards,

Kamil

Kamil - Sorry to hear about that. You will never know the number, so just reapply when you double your traffic and see how it go's.

In the meantime on to other affiliate programs. You may find that you do better in the long run. Best of luck.

Thanks Patrick!

Definitely not a train smash :)
A good lesson learned and I have shared this so other folks don't stumble with this hopefully.

I did not have any luck with Amazon associates. I had one sale through my banner link near the time my 6 months was up. I've had nothing since, so I removed the Amazon banner and added other affiliate links.

Yes, using Amazon on fresh or low traffic sites is not advised.

Not sure why it's taught so early in the lessons then when we set it up we get rejected down the line.

On a good note, you can reapply again. Once you do, maybe some testing of different ads and ad styles will help. As for myself, I'll be getting that email from Amazon soon too. I know I'm getting close to the expiration time.

This can all be avoided if you are able to find someone who already wants to buy something from Amazon and they just use your link to do it, the trick is to find that person.

Why not write a post and say you would appreciate some help in this regard? You can ask people to go to your website, click the amazon link and purchase whatever they already planning to buy.

I should have done this but I was to hesitant to ask or felt it would be inappropriate but now I lost my privileges to earn Amazon commissions.

Hey Kamil,

Do you have a social media group where you've begun to build a following? I've done this and I've got 1.160 ppl following me for 2 + years. Not got any links up yet, but hoping this turns the tables for me. Thank you for your lessons learned Kamil...

Blessings on your forward progress in this regard!

Peace and many monetary pluses ahead Buddy!
