Hi, This is my 7th month with Wealthy Affiliate, and I have learned so much. I am grateful for everything I have learned. My website is also getting attention, it seems, but I still haven't made a sale with my affiliate links yet. I know that there is no real time frame for it, but I am wondering if I may be doing something wrong ... I am using Amazon and ShareAsale, and I have signed up with two other affiliate programs that were recommended, but maybe I should find more smaller companies that use affiliates?

My niche is popular. I didn't choose it because of its popularity, but because I love my niche and I am passionate about it, so I thought I'd ask for tips. Maybe I don't place the links right? They don't stand out? Maybe my niche is getting too popular and I have too much competition? Maybe I don't know enough (which is certain)? I am open to any suggestions, tips, help. Thank you! :-)

Go to your Amazon profile and check if you have clicks. Normally there should be 4-5% conversion rate (sales). If there are no clicks, check your links, make sure that your affiliate ID is there.

Thank you, I checked, and there are clicks, and my id is in the links. I am going to do what Dale suggested and play a little with my links, change the fond color, change them, etc, see if that thelps. :-)

There is a recent webinar by Jay on calls to action, it may be useful to watch it before you do big changes.

Once you begin getting traffic to your website & clicks on your affiliate links it is all just a case of testing. Don't be afraid to play with things... Move them around, track them & see how they perform. Do they perform better in one place than another? Leave them there then... Do they perform better in one colour than another?? Etc... Play around, test things & then go off your findings... That's what the marketing game is all about :)

Thank you, I will do that. I'll move them around a little in some articles, change the colors. Is there a good plugin to add colors to your text?
