My First Amazon Affiliate Commisions

Last Update: September 22, 2018

No matter how hard I try, I can't help but be a little obsessed with checking the status of my Amazon Affiliate Commissions. I've been working really hard on my site over the past few months, and while I've seen my traffic improve, the corresponding affiliate commissions were nowhere to be found.

Then a few weeks ago, I logged into my Amazon account, and saw I had made a sale. My first sale, and it was proof that all this hard work was paying off.

I checked my account again the other day, and saw I had made a second Amazon Affiliate Sale on September 18th. It didn't show how much I had earned, because apparently the commissions aren't added to your account until the item ships.

Thus, far, between August 19th and September 19th, I have made $1.39 in Amazon Affiliate Commissions. The Green bars signify the orders that have been made and shipped.

Sure this may not be much, as the items sold are not big ticket items, but it is proof that the training taught here at Wealthy Affiliate actually works.

Rome was not built in a day, and neither is a six-figure passive income stream. Now to get back to work on adding content to my blog so I can continue to add to my Amazon Affiliate Commissions balance.

Till Next Time!

It really is nice to see those numbers, no matter how small. I knew the training here worked, but it does help when you see success for yourself.

My domain is actually about 2 years old, but it wasn't until earlier this year that I finally figured out the focus, or niche, for my site. I've been following the training which has helped immensely as I apparently was doing things wrong for so long. Just stay consistent and keep adding content to your site, and the commissions will come. I should note, I used the Native shopping ads, which allows me to target the products to specifically the content of my page, which helps with conversions, even though one of the sales for something I wasn't even promoting. :-)

Hi Jennifer. This is proof alright and great news.
There are some really great affiliate programs out there that help create passive income and having a few makes the $'s add up
All the best

Yep! I'm involved in a few other programs, one is health and wellness, which was my original focus for my site, now I just need to work on getting more content on my page for that product, so I can start seeing the big money roll in. :-)

Also helps validate to my husband that all the work I'm putting in is worth it. He's been a bit skeptical, especially since I've been a member here for so long, yet I wasn't actually focusing on it the entire time. Thanks for comment!
