What Commission Growth Looks Like

Last Update: September 07, 2018

Hey there!

I've been going back and forth about sharing this but I guess I'm going to share it now but I might get nervous and delete it later so you better read it quick, lol!!

I know there's a lot of new people in this community everyday and some who have been here for a while but aren't getting results...so I thought sharing this might help give you some encouragement.

Please do not steal my results, make your own. I couldn't open the web-photo editor because my connection is that slow right now...Yes...My connection is THAT slow... #countrylivin...


The only thing is, I can't bring up all the 'zero dollar' months that came before this.

The importance of sharing these particular results is for a few reasons. Actually, this account was originally closed beccause I didn't make enough sales.

So there's technically a bunch of zero months before these results. It came active suddenly when one of my posts that didn't rank all of a sudden gained traction.

That's where these results begin, December 2017, $10 and the account reactivateed. I had no idea that it COULD reactivate like that but it did apparently.

So now I have two Amazon Associate accounts and these results are from the one site so I can show you stats and progress for one site.

Of course, results vary so you can probably even do better than these if you work hard. And if you're not don't feel bad and compare. Your time will come too.

There is also another 'zero month' for January when I started working on it more. For 4 months I worked on it with little earnings and I wondered if I was wasting my time.

No, I decided to stick with it. In May, you can see a HUGE jump from $86 to overe $300! Completely flew passed a hundred and two hundred dollars.

So the moral of the story is not to give up just because you're not seeing immediate results. Also, note that the domain's one year bday is April and I still wasn't making over $100.

My very first site I didn't make more than $12 before I quit and I really really really should have stuck with it. I could go back and bite myself for quitting but hopefully you take my advice and just stick to the process.

Don't focus on earnings or traffic. Focus on creating quality content and helping others solve their problems.

Hope this helps :)

Not sure tjat I understand the figures Marlinda. I see the same figure twice, once in red, the other in black. NOt sure how to interpret it and then it says advertising fees/direct deposit.
Thank you for sharing anyhow. It encourages me who am yet to see any income.

Black it's the fees Marlinda earned with Amazon, red are the fees that were sent from her Amazon account to her bank account (or cheque if outside of US).

Yes, Zarina is right. Sorry for the confusion, there's no way to filter the results. Thanks for your question and keep up the good work :)

Congrats Marlinda!! :)

It's amazing to see commissions grow!! I reached my $100+ milestone in July, and since then it's slowly been growing to $150+, $250+, $300+ (August). Can't believe I was putting off Amazon for so long.

... (Here I was typing a question here about Amazon pre-order but then saw your comment on that Amazon question lol.)

Thank you for sharing, that helps a lot. When I first started I was so afraid I made the wrong decision and thought it was a scam. No one would actually show their earnings and so many people were having difficulty making it here. Now I decided to come back and make it a go. I now see so many showing that it really is possible to make money and all this training really does help you succeed and not just a run around for the monthly subscription. I was believing in the program but you and one other person made me see that you are able to make money from this training. Thank you again for sharing now I am pumped to get thru these levels of education. Yeah!

Hey Carrie! I'm glad this info has gave you more encouragement. That's a big reason that I shared it to show the real growth in income instead of just giving a number that may or may not be true (from a reader's point of view).
I always felt like people want to see big numbers but I realize that the 'smaller' numbers are good too because it feels more like you can do it and less overwhelmed or discouraged.
I'm glad that you found inspiration in this. I really am so nervous to share but it means a lot that you and otherss are inspired to keep going.
Keep up the good work :)
Marlinda
