Unhappy

i have to say i am very happy with my Amazon.com affiliation.. although i wish the comission was higher - averaged 5.5% commission on dvd/video sales mainly and some books

i am developing FanBuy.com based on Amazon.com products etc.. and am using webadverts to rotate some of the products such as programing books, web authoring software, graphics software etc

Unhappy

I'm a happy amazon.com affiliate. I created banners using specific books for my site and we installed a banner rotator that helps to keep it interesting. I put a short review on the banner....

The money I earn from amazon.com sometimes rivals the money I make from CPM banners....(especially now!)

Unhappy To Amazon or not?????

Hi Guys/Girls

This is a sort of Make money question but really revolves around website design so I have posted it here.

OK, my site www.webstuff4free.com is a pretty busy free site primarily aimed at webmasters. I have written a pretty funky Amazon script that stores books in a Database and rotates them as someone surfs round the site. I have sections for Webmasters including ASP and Perl specifics and am wondering whether to use the script to push some books.

The question is twofold.

1) Is anyone actually making money with book affiliate schemes anymore

2) Do you think it would ruin the 'free site' theme by doing so.

I just felt that it would be an ideal opportunity with so many webmasters viewing the pages but I also have serious doubts because of the free thing

I would appeciate any opinions on this

Jason

Unhappy

But what do people think of me adding them to a free site - does it ruin the whole theme?
