Amazon Windfall - 0 to $134 in 2 months!
This was one of the biggest regrets and mistakes in my affiliate marketing journey. Now l remembered Kyle emphasizing that 'You Must Not Leave Money On The Table' in the 'Get Started Course'. Of course, this was a little bit different, l had to think outside the box.
l reviewed a lot of product based MLMs on my website and noticed that visitors who commented suggested better alternative products to each other. So, 3 months ago l decided to offer their suggested products using Amazon affiliate links on 5 of my reviews. Instead of using screen shots of products which l reviewed, l uploaded Amazon image based ads instead.
Two months later, l earned $17 in July and $117 in August. Can you imagine how l was '....leaving money ($100/month) on the table'. What if l add products to the other 10 - 15 reviews? A conversion rate of almost 9% - not bad. The commission rates are increasing too.
Just an extra passive income - Did not write any extra product reviews, just converted the already existing traffic.
Learning is indeed a process.
l hope this make you start thinking of other methods of monetizing your existing websites.
P/S- note that some payments can go down due to refunds. These amounts also exclude Amazon bounties - commissions paid if traffic that you send to Amazon enrolls for free trials even if they don't end up purchasing the product. The amount paid depends on the offer but it is often between $3 - $5. It adds up. This is similar to Cost Per Action (CPA) offers.
In November l earned $1,097.40. This was partly because Amazon was paying a fixed 12% commission throughout this month.
In December,l decided to sell the website. That is another story for another blog.
