Tips for the Future
I suggest setting some money aside ahead of time in preparation for the following year’s Prime Day. This way you can get more of what’s on your wishlist without worry!!
Another tip is to make an actual wishlist on Amazon ahead of time so you are notified if they go on sale and so you can more easily track prices.
You can also use Prime Day as super duper early Christmas shopping if you’re really on your game and think you know what others will want for Christmas even before they do! Ha!
To Be Honest…
Prime Day is a super big deal for me.
My blog has a lot of posts but is still quite new and I work hard to drive traffic to it. I probably work 30 hours a week on my blog in any free time I have while also being a SAHM to my 3 little boys.
The main way people make money from having a blog is by selling products, which I haven’t really gotten into yet but I do plan on it.
Another way is running ads, like you’ll see on my site, which I feel bad for but it’s one of the few ways I make a few dollars a month. I do work with a company called SHE Media who runs my ads instead of Google. I love SHE Media because they are women-owned and empower women all over. They also let me have some control over my ads such as not having any ads for alcohol, drugs, firearms, etc. I like being able to keep those things off my site!
The third way is affiliate marketing/affiliate links. This is where Prime Day comes in. Every time you click through on one of my Amazon links and then buy something within the next 24 hours, even if it’s not what I linked to, I get a small amount of commission at no extra cost to you. Generally, this brings in just a few dollars a month because the commission rate is typically around 2% and not many people come to my blog and click through my links. However, last year on Prime Day I made $70 in affiliate commission in two days. That was most of my income last year from my blog. I greatly, greatly appreciated that $70 from Amazon which helped fund becoming an LLC this year.
All that to say, I greatly appreciate when anyone clicks through my Amazon links and buys anything. I seriously get excited every time I see I got even a penny of commission! It’s not even about the money really, it just makes me feel like I’m accomplishing something and maybe my blog will eventually make somewhat of a regular income, but we’ll see.
So if you want to make a twin mama smile, next time you want to buy something from Amazon, click here first so I get a few pennies of commission and feel accomplished.
