Author website sales through Amazon

Many authors link to Amazon on their website so they get a small percentage cut of any Amazon sales that originated from their website. Our Sports by the Numbers authors recently sent out the following email to all of their family and friends. The Amazon link is part of the Amazon referral program. Perfect timing for the Christmas shopping season! Would this help your website?

Hi everyone-

If any of you are going to do X-Mas shopping through Amazon or shopping on that site at all for anything at anytime, we want you to go through our site to link over to Amazon.

** You will NOT have to buy our books AND will be raising money for some fine charities.

If you go to our website, you will see all our current and upcoming books.

The four titles that are on the market right now are Oklahoma, Yankees, Georgia, and NASCAR.

Here is what we need you to do IF you are going to shop on Amazon anyways. Not just X-Mas, but anytime from here on out.

1. Go to

2. Click on the link under the OU Football book cover.

3. Click on the "Add to Shopping Cart" button.

4. Click on the "Proceed to Checkout" button.

5. Then you will be directed to an Amazon checkout page. Hit the "Continue" button".

6. If you want the book, great, go to "Proceed to Checkout" or just continue shopping. If not, hit the "Delete" button on the left hand side.

7. If you hit "Delete" then you should have a "Continue Shopping" button that pops up on the next page. Go for it!!!! And now you can just shop as usual.

8. Once you check out, because you started your shopping experience from our site, we will get a referral fee from Amazon. it's that simple and of course, like most of our books, a portion will go to one of our many charities!!!!!!

9. Most important thing is that we can not see who ordered what. It's all PRIVATE!!!!

Thanks AND please pass this email on to all your friends and family. This is a great way to raise money for the many charities we support, Mostly for kids, THON, Bob Stoops Champions Foundation, and the Denny Crum Scholarship Foundation to name a few.

Have a great day!!!
