My Highest Single Day Commissions on Amazon
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!
