    Hello everyone. I have an Amazon Affiliate website, www.PhilliesZone.com. I keep trying to drive more sales, but haven't gotten any sales yet. I have had the site for about 2 months now. Does anyone have any tips to increase traffic and sales? Thank you

    Also, I was just looking at www(dot)affiliatenichescript(dot)com. Do you think this is worth using?

    target "buying" keywords. Just because you get traffic doesn't mean people will buy. Go after keywords that are product specific like a make and model number, or things like "buy blue widget" rather than any keyword or even a "researching" keyword with high counts

    If you are targeting search engine traffic then have to do some SEO works like social bookmarking, article submission, forum posting, blog comments etc.

    A great way to get targeted traffic to your website is to make product review videos & submit those to youtube & other video upload sites with your website link.

    You are looking at this the wrong way - instead of focusing on keywords, traffic and sales, focus on creating a good site. I bet your content is rushed and your website looks like every other affiliate site.

    Take the time to make a good website first and sales will follow.

    Depends on your traffic, if you only get 50 visitors a day you could go another 2 months still without a sale. However, if you have 1000 visitors a day then I would begin to get worried as to why nobody was buying anything. Just some ideas:

    1) Increase traffic, more traffic in theory has to increase sales.
    2) Improve your content so that when the reader gets to the end of the page they feel obliged to click the buy now button/link.
    3) Make sure the "buy" button/link stands out, it should not be hidden.
    4) Think about reviewing some of the items you are displaying, a good review will encourage readers to buy.
    5) I checked a couple of products on the site, which indicated they were unavailable - this looks unprofessional to a reader.
    6) Ads at the top, ads at the side, then affiliate links on each page? People are going to click the back button immediately.
    7) Change colour see if that improves sales/clicks.

    Thats about it for now.
