I made $1.78 off of Amazon. It's so funny how those paltry amounts can lift our spirits and make us feel like we won the lottery.

Congrats! It is like winning the lottery because you know what you are doing is working...so enjoy celebrating!

Just last week I was jumping for joy for the same reason. After a year of procrastinating, I finally decided to give clickbank a try. I had bias about the site and so many of the ebooks out there, but I felt in my niche I might find some quality/useful items. So I devoted a day to the site, found what I was looking for, posted it and a few days later there was $15 sitting in my account! Plus I had befriended another rver who had great ebooks available on her own, posted those at the same time and made $8.50 the same week.

When what we are doing actually works, that little bit of money feels like a million.

Congrats again, Brenda!

Thank you frugal, I'll have to check out Clickbank. I had been procrastinating on writing for Wizzley, but now I'm back into it.

Well done Brenda, that's brilliant :) Just think that this is typically the worst time of year for sales too.

Brenda, This is amazing, kinworm made a important point, it is the low point in the sales year, so you are spot on and poised for success, just keep wizzing those quality wizzes Smile

Having these sales will always increase your motivation, big time! People around me never get it when I start dancing when I have 1$ in my Google Adsense account, but hey, I know what I am doing works, now it is just a matter of scaling ;)

Congratulations, that is so good news Brenda. When people actually buy, they trust your helpful opinions and recommendations. The money is just a smile for your face, happiness is the feeling to have been believed!

Congratulations once again, and good luck!

Thanks everyone. That's my second sale on Amazon, and I made 42 cents off of Chitika last month. That 42 cents gave me a big charge too.

I have made exactly .12 so far and that was an adsense click, but when that first amazon or otherwise sale comes in it's going to make my day- it's the drought that makes the rain feel so amazing :)

I'm really excited for you as well. I know the feeling. On squidoo I have managed to make a few amazon sales - not through my own affiliate link, through the squidoo amazon module.


I've been following my amazon affiliate data since joining wizzley because everything there will be through wizzley. I have seen my number of clicks per quarter grow.  No purchases here yet, but given the growing number of nibbles there will have to be a bite sooner or later.


It does seem that both time and number of articles influence this. I don't yet have enough articles to start understanding what works and what does not, but that will come with time, I suppose.

Yeah, Brenda!

As everyone else has already pointed out, you're going in the right direction.

I wonder how many writers here really do make enough per month to pay their internet bill if not more. 

I am always amazed when people report 3-4 digit earnings per month. It's great to hear, and it gives the rest of us hope.
