In last months report (see it here) I explained why commissions were down from the same period last year. June 2017 was the same unfortunately because of all the same reasons.
In June 2016 the BBQ affiliate website I created during the Earn1000 Course made £634.14. In June 2017 it made £399.88, so a good £230 less than in 2016.
This is disappointing because in an ideal world the older your website gets the more trust it gains and the more traffic is gets. However, if you do not add to the website and / or update the content that is already on there things will stall and then start to go backwards. This is exactly what has happened with my BBQ Amazon affiliate website.
Thinking about it with a clear head I am actually pleased with £399.88 because I have hardly touched this website for a very long time. In June 2017 the website attracted a total of 4,063 unique visitors and from these 1551 clicked through to Amazon. From these clicks through to Amazon 99 orders were placed. A total revenue of £5,986.66 was generated for Amazon, and I got an average of 7%.
Since I started this Amazon affiliate website it has made £5,835.79. So almost £6K from a simple Amazon affiliate website is not to bad at all. If I really put the effort in just imagine what it could do…
I have one clear goal, and that is to update all content already on the website (or at least the content worth updating) and adding new content. I want this complete at least 3 months before the warmer months next year, so around January I want all the updates completed.
Then hopefully in June 2018 I will make more than £399.88, or at the very worse make the same.
