Why So Many People Are Seeing Their First Amazon Sale (And How You Can Repeat This)
If you didn't know, I keep a running tab on success stories in Wealthy Affiliate. In the past week, I've added a bunch of "My First Sale on Amazon" posts to the list. Why the sudden influx of people seeing their first bit of success with affiliate marketing?
The answer is pretty easy - it's the holiday season, and people are shopping on Amazon. However, there is deeper meaning behind this. What's the TRUE reason they're getting their first sales?
More people are shopping online right now. They are looking for product reviews, top 10 lists, and ideas for gifts. More traffic = more sales.
If you saw your first sale this month, that's great news. It means you are doing everything right.
You may see sales drop off after the holiday season, but don't panic. Remember, your forumla works (the formula that Wealthy Affiliate teaches). To see more results, you just need to get more traffic!
Traffic is the lifeblood of a successful online business. Getting people on your website is the first step to making sales. Even if you're converting at .001%, you can still make money, assuming you have a ton of traffic coming into your site.
Of course, many of you will convert much higher than that, but I'm just setting an example. Even at super low conversion rates, with enough traffic you can make sales.
So as we get through the holidays and beyond, keep traffic in mind for 2019. Always be thinking - "How do I get more people onto my website?".
The main three ways are going to be organic traffic from search engines, paid traffic from ads, or social media traffic. I find that organic traffic is the cheapest and highest converting, so that's what I focus on. It's also what the Wealthy Affiliate training focuses on!
How To Get Organic Traffic From Search Engines
There are endless resources on WA talking about various ways to get organic traffic from search engines (namely Google). However, broken down to their core elements, I see two main things to work on.
1. Finding Good Keywords: Actually, I don't think keyword metrics matter that much. The main thing is to find good ideas to write about. What's interesting, topical, popular, and not competitive?
2. Good Writing Skills: You don't have to be a fancy writer. You just need to have a personality and an opinion. That's pretty easy! Proper grammar doesn't matter much as long as you can relate to your audience.
Going into 2019, work on your keywords and writing skills, and I know you're going to start to see results. Struggling to write? That's normal. It takes practice. Learning how to write a 5 paragraph essay is a great foundation.
Once you have a great foundation to your writing, you can rock these 8 articles styles to make money online.
With plenty of content on your site, you'll start to see more and more traffic. With more traffic, you'll start to see conversions. At first, just one per week. Then, one per day. Then, a couple per day...and so on until you achieve your money goals!
Looking forward to a profitable 2019 everyone. Happy holidays!
