A Sudden Big Burst of Amazon Sales
Last Update: Jun 21, 2017
I've just seen this:
A deeper look reveals that these sales came from my tablet mini niche site (see the tabletnichesite-20 tracking ID):
56 items were ordered on the 14th of June:
Most of these earnings were actually credited to me on the 3 days following this:
Products bought (on 14th June only):
- 24 x Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920
- 18 x Simbans Presto 10 inch tablet
- 14 x AmazonBasics USB Powered Computer Speakers (A100)
I'm going to assume that this is some kind of freak event rather than a genuine upward trend that will continue. I've not done any work on my tablet site for many months, so there's no achievement on my part here. So please don't congratulate me or say "well done". Please reserve that kind of praise for members who actually deserve it because they have been working on their websites.
My best educated guess for what happened here is that somebody bought all these products for their business. The webcam and speakers indicate an office trying to set itself up for virtual conferencing. The tablets may be related so that staff out traveling can easily communicate via Skype with staff in the office.
Most customers on Amazon won't buy this many products in one go, so this is clearly just a freak event.
