Cool Succeeded in Amazon, looking for another sales program.

Is there another good sales Affiliet program out there? One that if possible, let's you link to any item, and/or let's you use web services where you can browse through the store using a script on your domain? I'm now making about $100.00 a day from them and ran out of stuff to do with it and don't want to mostly rely on one affiliet program, just in case Amazon ever *gulp* goes down!!

Well, its not affiliate, but did you add google adsense to your pages?

After all this time of fiddling with affiliates and selling items directly from my own store, google's adsense has been a great shot in the arm for added funds that didn't cost me much in time and space.

I can't think of too many that would like how you promoted amazon last year, but if you are talking clicks on links from your websites, I do well with many CJ merchants.

Yep, I got AdSense, though I havn't upgraded to there new better ads yet.

::I can't think of too many that would like how you promoted amazon last year

(For any one that doesn't know, besides all the normal ways to link to them, I also used them as you do with a 'blind link' program, like All Clicks, bombed them with visitors and generated a ton of orders at the same time.)

Amazon liked it, BIG time, and so would all the other STORE sites. Just before the end of the quarter, Amazon E-Mailed me a different contract to sign and mail back to them, to be in what users on the Amazon board called the 'other program'.

Yesterday I made $215.89 from 130 items being shipped, counting the two bonuses.

Well not everyone wants untargeted traffic, but I've been wrong before, make sure you ask before you join, hate to see you loose those hard earned monies.

Yep, Amazon's the only program that I would bomb with visitors. With any other program, the visitors would actually click a link to access the site.

Hi Nintendo

Glad to see you are expanding. You are doing quite nicely with Amazon. Congrats!

Why not look into a CJ datafeed and build a supermall? With all that traffic from your gaming site, you may be able to make some cash. I think that CJ charges $250 unless you make 10k in sales a month. There a quite a few lame merchants, but they aren't too hard to spot and wean out. It may cannibalize a bit of your amazon sales but as long as you think you are going to reach the contract terms it may be worth it.

Hi Nintendo,

I know of an affiliate network that has some payday loans, credit cards, food, travel etc. that you might be interested in adding some of their campaigns to your site. Check out www.partnerweekly.com. They might offer some other options for you and they pay weekly.

About 3,000 uniques to my content sites, and about 5,000 hits a day to the store sites. The store sites generate most of the orders.

From my content/message board sites it's about 1,500,000 page views a month, according to Google AdSence. At the end of the month I'll post my final Amazon quarter earnings total. It's more than all of last year combined!!!

Since my first Holiday season with Amazon, I've always had the goal to beat the last holiday season earnings on a non-Holidays season. For 4th Quarter 2002, I beat that at the first quarter of this year, and beat the last 4th Quarter in this quarter. I never though I would make in one quarter more than I made in all of the last year combined!! Next I'll be looking in to Commission Junction again.

For the quarter I made $5,571.19 with $4,404.72 being earned in the second half of the quarter.

Time to start dreaming of a green Christmas!!!! Last year for Q3 I made $432.17, and then on the Holiday Quarter I made $3,645.96, a 800-900% increase!!
