The climb has begun!

Last Update: November 19, 2018

Somehow I went from over 500 to 200, but oh well. It doesn't matter. I'm here and I'm not going anywhere! I am going to make this climb one step at a time and build my website. I'm working on an article on PTSD in children. Interesting reading.

Anyhow, I'm here and I'm here to stay. I'm close to the 6-month limit with Amazon, so I need to find other affiliates instead of just relying on Amazon. Any ideas?

Well, time to get the day started. I'm on a roll!

Have a fantastic day fellow dreamers,

Rae

I've lost my Amazon affiliate account TWICE now... Just reapply, as it takes time to develop the traffic on your site that generates sales.

I've heard of some 'tips' from some people on how to keep your Amazon status though, by 'sharing' sales (e.g. lets say you want to buy a lipstick that you've seen on Amazon and I want a really neat t-shirt. You and I make a deal where we'll share the sales, so you go to my niche site on Headphones and go to my Amazon link (this then install the cookie for 24 hours). You then go to the Amazon page with the lipstick and buy it and I get credit for the sale.

I go to your niche site and click through your Amazon links (this downloads the cookie on my PC for 24 hours) and I then go to the t-shirt page and buy my t-shirt I want and YOU get credit for the sale.

I haven't done that yet, but I think when I reapply and approach the third time's a charm with Amazon, I'll find someone to swap sales with, as it's a pain to have to re-code all my Amazon links with the new affiliate code I get each time I re-apply.

That sounds interesting. I'd be willing to do that with you but mine is mainly books and such dealing with PTSD so you probably would be interested in mine.

Yeah I don’t fully understand it myself but it has everything to do with the cookie Amazon puts in your PC and nothing to do with your niche.

As I understand it if someone goes to your site and then browses and buys a TV you get credit due to the cookie

I am about to lose my Amazon in about a month as well but I will definitely reapply. But you should diversify your affiliates and look for more on different networks.

Hey Rae, I work for Awin.com, the network that owns ShareASale.com. I'd be glad to help you find some new merchants! We work with names like Etsy, Wayfair, AliExpress and more.

I'd love the help! Right now I'm focusing on selling specific books, music and weighted blankets. I need to branch out somehow, I'm just not sure how. My website is about healing from PTSD, so I guess I'm sort of limiting myself. But it is an important topic to me. What should I do?

There are lots of other companies that sell books besides Amazon; some even have free shipping globally too, and all have a longer cookie than the 1-day one from Amazon. Same thing with music. I found hundreds of weighted blankets on Etsy.com. Bonanza.com had some weighted blankets plus a lot of other items around PTSD. You have lots of choices. Both Etsy and Bonanza have affiliate programs on Awin.com.

I've just started using Amazon and my results are slow so far.

I understand and I hear Amazon is the best. But getting the sales isn't easy. I guess we just need to be patient.
