    Has BN.com been tracking for you lately, and what are your conversions with them? Thanks.

    Hello Affiliate

    I have send some quality traffic to them in the past. They have not converted well for me. I will probably try again with bn, but if they don't convert after a good 100 clicks I will drop them. :0(.

    BN tracks fine and is converting well for me too.

    Sales are everywhere, Sales are mine.

    Over the last year or so, 8721 impressions, 249 click throughs, 0 sales, on targetted, niche traffic. Guess I need a new niche or a new partner: thanks for bringing this up!

    I’m using both Barnes and Noble and Amazon on one of my sites. It’s a fairly new site and doesn’t get a lot of traffic. I promote the B&N and Amazon products the same way. Here’s a comparison:

    Barnes and Noble
    3155 impressions
    113 clicks
    1 sale

    Amazon
    68 clicks
    6 sales

    I love their stores, but I think it might be time to drop B&N!

    B&B vs Amazon:
    Bring up any 10 books. Compare prices. 80% of the time Amazon is lower. That's why Amazon converts more. Depending on what you sell (books, cd's, etc) most people know about the two and comparison shop. Amazon consistently wins in a price war.

    When choosing between two programs, first consider the site's ability to close a sale (ie potential CR), THEN the commision. Cuz 5% of $500 is a whole lot more than 25% of $10

    I would also add that I sell a fair amount from Amazon, I need to switch over everything to them, especially since they seem to be going out of their way to improve their program.

    Barnes used to be my BEST merchant once upon a time.... Then time passed... now Amazon is my best [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] Seems to be a trend. I still run them becasue I like them... and I do have sales, but Amazon seems to be the book store of choice these days.
