it is my first post here, but i have been reading a lot for over a year The reason i did not post so far was that i had nothing to say.My experience in affiliate stuff was limited compared to the gurus here
Well ... now i have to say something:
Thank you all and thank you Chris for this forum. I started out with an aws shop, got lucky that i could snap a got .info domain for free, build a site with a strong modificated version of the aws tutorial and submited to every catalog i could find.
First day when i started i sent some traffic via adwords just to make sure that with the necessary traffic the site generates sales. Well i made my first sale at the first day
After 7 months without advertisment i got my first check of 150$ and now (the 8th month) i have allready $140 and it is the first moth of the quarter.
And i also get around $1 from adsense from the same page a day.
I have also other sites that are coming with more or less success, but i am definitaly sure there is still money out there. So my newcomer advice for AWS sites to everybody is :
- find a good product category and build a good looking site around it.do not build all in one shops and DO put some time into the site design, because it counts.
-submit to every catalog
-learn seo. even aws sites can have good positions in the serps
-read forums like this one here
