7 sales on Amazon yesterday! Wow!

Last Update: September 07, 2017

I was not expecting anything when I checked Amazon today to see if I happened to get any sales yesterday. I really wasn't. That is always when I get sales, when I least expect it!

I had 7 sales yesterday in Amazon! 7! That is so amazing. I had 10 clicks to Amazon from my site so that is a 70% conversion rate once they got there!! Pretty cool. I only had about 16 people to my website, from those I got 10 clicks to Amazon and from those 10 clicks, 7 sales.

Several products I review were purchased and several random things like a Christmas DVD and a pair of women's shoes!

How cool is that!

Keep going, it works if you don't give up and you may find success when you least expect it!

I had not been getting sales for 3-4 weeks at a time lately. Last week I had 4 sales over 2 days and now these 7 all on one day so things are picking up hopefully!

The best thing I can recommend is keep adding content and make sure you request comments. They really help boost post rank on Google etc.

That is an amazing conversion rate! If I remember correctly, a 205 conversion rate is considered phenomenal - 70% is unheard of. Just goes to show it's not about the quantity of traffic, but the quality of ready to buy traffic. Congratulations!

Thanks Wendy...that would not be my average though. I have weeks at a time with no sales at all! I usually only have 1 or 2 clicks through to Amazon on those days with no sales though.

So, I can't complain!

Congrats!! wow, what a conversion rate...I think it would be most people's dream to have a steady 70%, even for a day that's still impressive. Well done, I hope your success continues.

Definitely just for the day for me! I either have nothing or a great conversion rate generally since my traffic is still low. I will take more days like that though!

Thanks Taetske! I have a fresh cold with dripping nose now...uggg. I am still really happy about this but otherwise I think I would be dancing!
Reply
laparra1 Premium
Not good to have a dripping nose in the summer. You had a lot of stress lately, job related and the worries. That weakens your immune system. Lots of lemons, honey, sleep and take it easy.

All the best, Taetske

Great job Jessica. Well done. Can we see a link to one of your review ?
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Do you mean one of my posts on my website reviewing a product?
Reply
Sylvain34 Premium
yes for example, to see how you've done it, as it seems to be working quite well for you !
Reply
Sylvain34 Premium
Thanks for the links. It's true that the first link seems more natural than the second (in my opinion).
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Yeah, I will see how that one performs over time.
Reply
Sylvain34 Premium
You're right, you will see. It's a very narrow niche and it seems to be working quite well for you. Good.
Reply
Swangirl Premium
I was told by some when I started it was too broad! I didn't want it to be any more narrow though. This way I can cover all cat products.

I just added one more link at the bottom of the list above also. It is a much longer review that goes step by step and the black light reviewed there is one of the sales I just made yesterday. I know it came from this post since it is the only post in which I discuss it.

This is very motivating and, above all else, encouraging, hopefully, for all of those who have not had some sales of some kind!

Congratulations; Now everyone knows it does work and it just takes time and work!
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Thanks! Yes, you can go for a long time and have no sales and it can suddenly turn around. Most importantly you have to keep working, adding content and getting traffic.
Reply
ArieOrtiz903 Premium
Although I have not made any sales yet, seeing posts like these are one of the things that keeps me going!

It is very easy for someone to try it for a bit then to say "it does not work" and going back to the comfort zone.

Like you said though, there is no such thing as failure when you stay consistent long enough.
Reply
Swangirl Premium
Thanks. I had been going 3-4 weeks between sales lately, it got very slow and then I would only have maybe 2 and then nothing again. Hopefully things are picking up since I have been adding content faster, requesting comments which drives post up in the search engine ranking and getting more traffic.

Here's hoping it continues for you Jessica. Also, Christmas purchasing should soon start to have an effect on traffic and resulting sales.
Reply
Swangirl Premium
That would be nice. Last year I tried to get ready for the Christmas season and got no sales. Maybe it will go better this time.
Reply
ValerieJoy Premium
Oh Jessica. That was not good. Well, it has to be better this year because I'm about to upgrade my Christmas website which I neglected last year. I will certainly be disappointed if I do all that work and sales don't happen. So let's think positively that we will both get sales from now on through to Christmas.

Cheers!
Reply
Swangirl Premium
You probably will do well if you have a whole Christmas site. I didn't go that far!

It didn't do all that well the first year it was up, but hopefully it will do better this year. It remains to be seen!

It was until recently. It is definitely fall now. The leaves are turning and we are getting out rain and wind storms. We had a big storm exactly 5 years ago that had hurricane force winds, we have had those most every fall lately. We get the tail end of Pacific Typhoons sometimes.
Reply
TammiP Premium
Fall is coming here too. We are going to get a really big dose of Irma over the weekend too. I am a little afraid of this one. Going to the Rescue Shelter tomorrow to see what needs to be done for the furry friends. There will be an influx after this storm hits. Going to hold on to a really BIG tree!!! LOL!!!!

Yes! Will you skip going to the Harvey area since you will have Irma now?

Hold on!!! Thanks for helping the pets!
