For Those Who Have Amazon Bookstores

Do you get many sales through your Amazon Associates account via a bookstore that you have set up? I think I could have a very comprehensive list of books on suffering. I didn’t think that would be a popular subject but then saw how popular Piper’s book on suffering is on Amazon, even though it’s a free Kindle book (and a couple of days ago a book about learning Greek was #100). I think I could put together some other stuff too. But it would be a lot of work.

I don’t get many sales through book links here or the search box.

Would it be worth it?

    As far as I know, I have never had anyone buy a book through my bookstore, but I haven’t done much to promote it either, so who knows? I have had several people buy a book called My Boys Can Swim off of a fluff piece I wrote a while back when my wife was expecting over on HubPages, A Dad’s Guide to Surviving Pregnancy. I think I’ve made like $10-12.

    Thanks Peter. I was hoping you’d reply because I know you have a store, as does Nick. I think I’ll put it off for now unless I can think of ways to promote it other than just mentioning it on the blog.

    Do you guys know if it counts if you buy from your own store? If not, I’ll do my ordering through yours (and Peter and Nick!).

  4. 4 Scripture Zealot

    No it doesn’t count if you buy from your own store or links.

    If you could buy from my search box or their stores that would be great. When going through a search box, anywhere else you go still counts towards my account.

    Thanks a lot. I wrote a post about this quite a while ago. I confess I sometimes forget to buy through someone else’s link when I buy from Amazon.

    Jeff, you inspired me to check. I’ve had 11 clicks from my blog bookstore with 0 purchases (in about 3 months). On Hubpages, I’ve had 952 clicks across several articles with 42 purchases for a grand total of $32.25 in earnings in about 20 months.

    I just briefly looked at HubPages but don’t really understand what it is. How do you use it?

    Jeff: I would be glad to go through your search next time I order. I think I may have told Nick I would order through his, too, but I will hit yours up at some point.

  8. 8 Scripture Zealot

    That would be great. They sell televisions at Amazon too.

    Jeff: I’ll keep that in mind! 🙂

    Jeff, you basically write “hubs” or articles on just about anything. Anyone can sign up, it’s not like blogging because you don’t maintain a website, each individual hub is technically a stand alone page, but you can add a lot more to it than a traditional blog post. It’s not hard to get the hang of, it just takes a few minutes. Actually, where I made more money was from the Adsense money. I didn’t make a lot, but couple of months I will get a Google deposit of $100 from Adsense on Hubpages.

    Oops, that was supposed to be, “but about every couple of months…”

  12. 12 Scripture Zealot

    Thanks. Could you show me your page?

    I have AdSense ads on multiple web sites and they’ve dwindled.

  13. 13 Peter M. Lopez

    I have several, actually, but my primary profile page is here. I also just put up a quite post about it on my blog.
