How to REALLY Make Money Online

Highest Amazon month ever.
Plus another $100 not shown from SAS
I've been doing this affiliate marketing thing for a while now ever since I was a young teenager still in school, I started on several free websites like Squidoo, Hubpages and Bubblews always dabbling never really making headway anywhere.

It wasn't until January this year that I really upped my game, I knew my exams and school was coming to an end and didn't really want to go to university, I wanted to run my own business and take a gap year instead.

I started a blog and promised myself I would stick to it for 1 year, no ifs or buts. 1 whole year and if it wasn't successful I would give it all up and surrender to the rat race. It sounds like a stretch but the time will pass anyway and what other option did I have? Keep dabbling and waste another year, two, ten?

Make Money With Shareasale

Amazon may be the leader for physical product affiliates but let’s not forget other merchants from Shareasale and CJ (commission junction), there’s pretty much any type of product on Amazon that you can think of but there are also items that are hard to find too.

Here’s my earnings for a random day this month (pictured), I earn a few dollars everyday so it adds up quickly and I don’t have nearly as many links for them on my blog as Amazon. It just makes sense to plug those holes that Amazon doesn’t fulfill and it’s a nice complimentry stream.

To be honest I’ve had it easy with Shareasale thanks to Easy Product Displays which is the tool I use to create product displays with a call to action button underneath which I what makes my conversion super high. It’s a monthly payment tool but I make it back in less than one sale and it saves me tons of time, and time equals money.

So if you have a blog that gets a traffic and sell products from Amazon on it already I’d recommend adding a few shareasale links with EPD and adding another stream just like that. Some merchants are auto approve so you can start straight away and others you’ll have to apply for but it’s well worth it.

Amazon Earnings for August 2015

Thought I'd post my Amazon earnings here for any readers interested in growing their own affiliate income. I've been learning and lot of new techniques and slowly implementing them on my main blog. 

I earned a total of $210.13, all but a dollar came from that main blog. I used to use solely text links and image links, not only was it labour intensive but my conversion rate was super low. 

Since I've been using a tool called Easy Product Displays or EPD for short I've seen both conversion rate and sales improve dramatically. The displays are super attractive to the eye, stand out and only take a few seconds to put together with the tool. 

I can't wait for Halloween and Christmas when both sales and conversions are higher, the more I blog and update my existing pages the more traffic and sales I seem to get. So just keep going!
