I’m Trying Something New Again

wpid-mindofbirdman.jpg

I recently went to a friend’s site and clicked on his Amazon link to find a popup that asked if I wanted to shop at Amazon Canada. I thought that was pretty cool and I asked him how he got that to come up. He didn’t know what I was talking about, so I sent in a question to Amazon thinking it might be something to do with them.

It wasn’t, but the helpful fellow told me that it would be a specific code on the site from the hosting company or that he did himself. Seeing as he didn’t do it, I figured I would look up plugins for WordPress that dealt with it.

I came up with EasyAzon. It was $47. I hope it works like they say it will. I am going to try it out here, and if it works out well, I will also put it on our new site, Granola Light.

I think that I am actually going to try making money on the internet, and seeing as this blog has proven wildly unsuccessful at it, I might as well use it as my guinea pig. What have I got to lose, right?

The thing is, I need a little help.

I am going to post a few Amazon ads and I would really appreciate it if you could click on them and see if they take you to the Amazon of your respective country, then if you could either comment whether it worked on here, the Facebook page, G+, or Twitter, I would really appreciate it.

I’m trying to take the online course that came with it, but so far it is just teaching me how to create a site with the sole purpose of getting traffic to Amazon. While that sounds awesome,(not really), I would rather take a more organic approach and hope for a little trickle of business from Amazon.1)Although I have been toying with the idea of a very profane and snarky review site. Let me know if you think that would fly.

So anyhow, I am putting a few links up. Please let me know how it works. My fingers are crossed.

The first is an image link. You should be able to hover over it as well.

This is just a text link.

And this is a CTA thingy?

I don’t know what I’m doing yet, but hopefully I will soon. I really like this kind of shit, and I’m hoping I can keep doing it, but I’m sure that one day I will have to go back to work. Between this, soap making, chickens, and the worms, I think I could have a pretty cool career.

Yes, I am counting my chickens before they are hatched. Figuratively and literally. I will get them after they are hatched and off the heat lamp.

  1. Both the links worked. Took me to Canadian Amazon. The other text link asked me if I wanted to add the item to my cart.
