As part of HubPages, it is possible to make money with Amazon as part of the Amazon affiliate program. Simply add an Amazon capsule to your Hubs. Now I am not a salesman so I have very few product Hubs. Most of my Hubs are informational. I will place many books next to my Hubs related to the topic I am discussing. I certainly don't push any products.
Despite this, I have managed to get the occasional sale through Amazon. It has taken 18 months to get to the point of receiving payout even with the low $10 minimum. Nevertheless, a few days ago I received a direct deposit into my checking account for $11.47. Not a large amount but totally passive in nature. I didn't really do much to earn this money. I simply took the time to place the capsule next to most of my Hubs.
This month has been my best month for Amazon yet. I have shipped out 6 products and am just over half way to the next payout. I would be thrilled if it took less than 18 months to get the next payment and eventually was able to generate enough traffic and interest to make over $10 monthly through the Amazon affiliate program.
Like anything online (especially for me), it is a gradual process that starts out slow and picks up. I will just have to see what happens. Again, I am not a salesman. I can't write for the purpose of selling. I can only advocate those products I use myself and enjoy. Anyway, just thought I would share that I finally got paid through Amazon.
I am just a neophyte learning to make money online. I am excited about the opportunities and hope to share what I am learning.
I am also interested in real assets such as gold and real estate. I have a blog on these topics as well. Be sure to stop by and check out both my blogs.
