Motivation plays a big role when you start affiliate marketing for the first time and fail to make money with Amazon for initial few months. In addition, I know how it feels when you start seeing some money in your affiliate account. Earning reports from other associates encouraged me and kept me on the track. Though I’m not a super affiliate, my earnings are growing month over month and that keeps me further motivated. By posting my earning reports here, I just thought of motivating newbies who would like to make money on Amazon associate program.
I joined the Amazon associate program almost five years back and was promoting few electronic products on profit sharing sites. You may be aware this already, Hubpages allows you to publish your articles for free and share some affiliate commissions. I had nearly 80 articles that were getting quite good search engine traffic. Mere $30-$40 dollars a month were my usual earnings from the programs. If you’re serious about affiliate marketing, I strongly recommend you to buy a basic plan from Bluehost. It will save really a LOT of YOUR money going to Hubpage’s pocket. There are tons web hosting services out there, but if you’re staring your first website, I strongly recommend Bluehost. It has an amazing support team that helped me to start my first website in short time with literally ZERO experience.
Coming back to our main discussion, a consistent monthly earning of $100 with Amazon affiliate program was a distant dream until 2015. Thanks to some of the courses I took lately, since Jul-2015 my affiliate account is making more than $100 every month and $200+ in last four months (includes Jan-2016). Even it almost touched $500 in November; of course, it was a shopping season.
You could see from the graph, my earnings were below $30 a month until May-2015 and started to grow from there. A special thanks to PotPieGirl and here tutorial that changed the complete picture in July. Though the guide was crystal-clear and easy to implement, I could not fully focus on it because of other projects. By the way, she make more than $200 a day with Amazon, which shows full potential of the method.
In total, I made $1502.46 in 2015 (90% of that came in last six months). It is a clear indication for me that the method is working perfectly and encouraging to put more efforts. Money makes money, as a reinvestment (very small amount); I bought Magic Store Builder and a new domain in December-2015. My new Amazon affiliate site was ready in minutes and results from the new site is promising. With these two programs, my make money with Amazon project is going strong and consistent $500 a month is highly attainable. Please share your success story here and motivate others.
