Newbies experience with FSB

I just thought I'd give a brief rundown of my findings thus far.

Complete newbie to domaining/affiliate stuff, but have been updating our Companies wordpress website for nigh on two years so not a complete novice with respect to internet marketing stuff.

Anyhow, for my first venture into affiliates I thought I'd have a go with FSB to save me the aggro of ECU or the like.

Got a reasonable EMD (albeit hyphenated) in the .co.uk extension. Google shows 6000 local exacts

Purchased my FSB licence and got a member on here to do a site design and write 4 x 500 word articles.

Popped the site up and have done nothing with it since then (about 2 months ago). Site ranks on about Pg 5 of google for the exact match- but strangely enough not the sites homepage. On page 1 of bing.

Site has been making sales almost daily. 1st Month 38, first 12 days of this month its done 18.

Overall fairly pleased with it for my first site, and one which appears to need little upkeep.

I'm now considering adding a wordpress blog on the back of it to add some fresh content.

Not really sure why I posted, but thought I'd share....

Good going, it's nice to hear of some success with FSB- was going to give it a try but never got round to it!

I've stopped building stores and putting any effort in to existing ones, from my experience I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but that's just my opinion.

Thanks for posting!

Are those figures your earnings or the Takings?

What products does the store sell?

Some intetesting stuff here.

Being a noob i wasnt sure what a decent conversipn rate was. The site gets about 70-100 uv's/day. From this i reckon 5-15 people click through to amazon. So far this month i have had about (till yesterday) 55 clicks to amazon and 14 sales.

I have had days with >80 uv's and 20 odd clicks to amazon and zero conversion.

the figures i quoted were my earnings and not the value of the amazon sales.

The site sells a produc used in the garden

Sounds like you are doing quite well so far.

Was it a fresh reg / aged / fresh catch ? Maybe you're benefitting from an indexed page from a prev. website?

Amazon must be a good place to buy that product.

In Comparison

I've got a fairly dissapointing hyphenated .co :-S product domain with amazon store

Launched Nov/Dec

3,300 Views
150 Adsense Clicks = 36
90 Amazon Clicks = 6 Sales = $23

- I had a look on amazon and I would probably not buy anything from what was available either, bit of a poor offering.
