My Highest Single Day Commissions on Amazon

Last Update: April 08, 2019

I had my highest sales on Amazon on Saturday. I have sold more items in a single day before, but this was the highest dollar amount. Two items were over $100 each and there were 8 items total. The commissions for that one day of sales will be about $28. That isn't big money but if I had that coming in every day I would feel pretty rich considering this is my 3rd job! This is also seperate from my WA commissions for referrals.

This just shows that it CAN be done without a ton of SEO knowledge or IT skills. I started with no SEO knowledge at all. Most of the products purchased had nothing to do with my website or products I review either. That is the power of Amazon. Anything purchased gives you a commission as long as the customer got to Amazon through your website links. I get more sales for products I review, but there are quite a few unrelated items purchased. In this case there was a cat tree and the other large item was a bathroom ceiling fan at $130.

My traffic was up last week which probably accounts for the higher sales as well. The key is getting high quality traffic to your site. High quality traffic means A) real people not bots and B) people ready to make a purchase rather than people just looking at random things they find on social media. That is why I don't put much time into social media. I prefer the focused traffic that comes from organic search results. Those people are searching for specific terms that bring them to my website. If someone searches for a home remedy for a cat cold, they are not just randomly looking at stuff. They have a kitty with a cold and need a way to fix it fast. If they are searching for affordable cat trees for large cats, they are probably in the market for such a product and looking for realistic reviews. If you can solve people's problems and also use good SEO principles you will get focused, high quality traffic to your website and are likely to get sales. You need to offer great information to answer people's questions and use SEO so that your posts get high rankings in the search engines so readers can find them.

As many of you know I have had many issues with health and other jobs keeping me busy the last few months. I have not been active on my sites. This shows that a great foundation of content on your site can keep traffic coming in long after you write it!

Thank you for sharing! And congratulations!!!!!

I guess I'm ready now to put more Amazon products on my website.
I already applied for the affiliate program and need three sales to qualify.

Uplifting share!
:-))) Thank you!

I really like Amazon's associate program. Some people complain about it but there are definitely serious pros that have to be weighed against the cons. Yes, they have a short cookie (only 24 hours) but people can buy a cat tree, light bulbs, paper towels and a pair of shoes and we get all the commissions even if we don't review the items.

On the other hand, I don't like the creeping feeling that Amazon is becoming the next WalMart...that is the only part the bothers me. I would rather support only small businesses. From a purely business perspective however, I think Amazon is great for bloggers starting out. You can get sales from all different categories in one place without signing up for tons of different affiliate programs. If you sign up for 10 affiliate programs but they all have a $10 or $20 minimum payout it could be a very long time before you get paid!

Thank you!

I was just thinking, Amazon actually helps many small businesses get started too! Like us! I was contacted by a person whose company makes biodegradable planters with cat grass. He offered to send me a free sample so I could potentially review it.

I looked and their product is sold on Amazon! How handy. If I chose to review his product it is already on Amazon so I don't have to sign up for another affiliate program.

Thanks Fran. I was sick this weekend and Aaron was worse! I got myself together enough to go out and get him medicine so this was a nice surprise. It always seems these things happen when I am sick. I wish they would happen when I am feeling better so I could enjoy them more. I won't complain though!

I had another featured snippet too but now it is gone :( I was going to do a post about that one since it was a post I added about 5 weeks ago and it already got up to position "0"! It is the last one I did on apple cider vinegar for upper respiratory infections in cats. It is still in the top 3 but no longer the snippet.

Sending wellness vibes!!!

Thoroughly enjoying my new old cat (he's 13). He is doing well, though he is really shy around strangers. I've made progress this week, though, as I've finally convinced him he can sleep on top of the bed instead of under it.

Well, our latest addition was 14 when we got her and she is 15 now. She is truly amazing. I guess it is not a case of "You can't teach an old dog new tricks". You CAN teach an old cat new tricks! I am glad your boy is doing well. Just in the last few months, our girl has decided she likes to sleep right next to my head. Our other girl started doing that this winter too! Now they take turns. Sometimes when they are in the right mood I have one on each side of my head and another on my chest all at the same time.

They are such fun, aren't they?
Pogo likes sleeping in my bed. He comes in here to the office about 9:00 and starts telling me it is time to go to bed.

Did you adopt your 14-year-old just to get her out of the shelter and give her a better home?

Yes. She was at a rescue group and needed a home. It was so sad. She had lived with the same family all her life. I can't imagine how she felt being dumped at 14!!
