So the weather is getting a little warmer, at least on some days and people are starting to dream about getting out in their back gardens or even into the countryside. Some of these people will even be thinking about getting a BBQ 🙂
Two years ago I recorded my computer screen and build a brand new Amazon affiliate website. I then spent a lot of time splitting this long recording down into small manageable videos and explaining exactly what I did and why I did it. This website was an Amazon affiliate website based around BBQs.
This is what is now the Earn1000 Coaching Program that anyone can take. I do go over this in my free videos over at Earn1000, but the actual course leaves no stone unturned.
What this means is that now anyone can follow along with the videos and set up their own Amazon affiliate website. Like I always say if you are interested in learning how to make money online then affiliate websites are a fantastic place to start. You learn the basics of online marketing, how to make a website, and you understand the relationship between your website content, Google searches, and eventually how to flow your website visitors through to Amazon (or some other company’s website) where they can make their purchase and earn you commissions.
Amazon Affiliate Commissions
Anyway, since I started this BBQ Amazon affiliate website back in March 2015 it has slowly but surely got more established and is earning decent money. In April (last month) it attracted 8190 people, which works out at an average at 273 people per day. It was actually more than this but I stupidly removed my Google Analytics code for 7 or 8 days so I did not tract visitor numbers. See the figure below with the zero visitors period. 🙁
These numbers were over double that of April 2016 and you would instantly expect this to have a major impact on commissions generated.
In April 2016 (last year) the BBQ affiliate website made £264.09, which at the time I was really happy with. Remember the initial goal of this Amazon affiliate website was to make £1000 per year which is £83.33 per month, so we are well ahead of this. Each visit to the website made about £0.07, which does not sound much but it is not too bad for something we have created from scratch online.
Anyway, back to 2017. In April 2017 the 8190 visits to the website generated an impressive £733.20. This works out as £0.09 per visitor so a little more than in 2016. £733.20 is fantastic especially since we are not in the heat of summer year. May 2016 is our record month to date with 9743 visits and £1089.09 in commissions. So fingers crossed for May 2017, but if April is anything to go by we should at least get close to this figure.
Below is a plot of commissions generated from the BBQ Amazon affiliate website since the domain name was first registered back in March 2015. As of 30th April 2017 the website has made £4845.01.
You can see that this is a very seasonal website with sharp spikes in money generated over the summer months and lulls in the winter months.
Remember, I show you exactly how I made this website in my online video course over at Earn1000.
Note that I have done no backlinking or special outreach. In fact I have done no promotion at all. All I have done is set up my website correctly and written & published some decent quality (keyword specific) content. Literally anyone with access to a computer and the internet and who can type to an OK standard can create their own version of this website that has made me nearly £5000 to date.
