Some tricks that can help you make $2500+ through CJ

    My best earnings through CJ is definately with eBay. I learnt some tricks that has been working for me. Maybe it will work for you.

    Putting eBay banners on your site doesn't neccessarily mean you are going to have the same success as I am. But there are some techniques that I use that may help you.

    Linking to unique interesting auctions is the best technique to send visitors to eBay. When you describe about an interesting auction on eBay, high percentage of visitors will click on the link to check out the auction. If the visitor buys something off eBay within the next 7 seven day, you will get a cut (50% to 75%) out of eBay's commission from that sale. And also if the visitor is a new eBay sign-up, you will also get $25 to $35 per new active referral.


    Here is an example of something I would write about.

    Title: Bob Barkers Sold on eBay for $20,000

    [​IMG]

    Description: With the retirement of Bob Barker from the hit game show "The Price is Right", his microphone was auctioned off on eBay and was sold for $19,919.08. Dave Ryan, from a radio station KDWB, was the lucky bidder for the historic microphone. During Ryan's radio show, many callers made remarks to him saying how a big dumbass he was. Ryan defended himself, saying that he loves to collect celebrity memorabilia and he will be using it for his own radio show. Click here to check the auction for yourself


    Ok, the example was short but you get the idea.

    When you have an affiliate link, it can look like this: "http://rover.ebay.com/ rover/1/711-1751-2978-71/1?AID=5463217&PID = xxxxxx&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com %2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dll%3F ViewItem %26item%3D130121981790%26 category% 3D18839". Very unattractive right? To increase more clicks and make it more attractive, I usually mask up the affiliate link. This is how I do it:

    Using these tricks will definately boost your monthly earnings. The more you write about eBay auctions, the more pages your site will be indexed in the search engines. Keep posting and give it time and you will notice your earnings will start to grow.

    And remember, you will have higher click-through-rate if you are targeting eBay users!

    This was one of my tips on my blog, Ouchs.com

    If someone is already registered with ebay, then they come along and click your affiliate link, dont buy that item and buy something else on ebay a few days later do you get a commission on it? Or is it only new signups?

    Yes, the ebay policy is as follows...

    ActionCriteria A registered user places a Winning Bid.
    Action Referral Period 7 day(s)
    Action Referral Occurrences Unlimited
    Commission 50.00%

    So if the person you sent to Ebay from your website wins any auction within 7 days from the time they clicked through your link, then you will recieve 50% of what Ebay makes for those auctions. As long as the person does not click on any other peoples affiliate links.
