Keegan’s Stuff: My Amazon Store

Leave a comment

Many years ago, I created a website; Over time, it has grown and become more sophisticated.

It is showcases a variety of content my Résumé, Teaching Portfolio, Research Papers, Graduate Work, Articles, and other interests. Many times I have tried to generate some income either by selling directly to users or through affiliate programs with marginal or no success. My latest effort is an Amazon aStore. Basically its products I choose to sell from Amazon, and if you buy from my pages, I get a percentage. You can also search for anything you want from my pages even if it is not on my pages, and buy it. I still get a percentage. In essence, this is a plea to for traffic to my store. Hopefully, this will also generate some income. Click on the above link and shop. It is greatly appreciated

This week, I decided to use my website,, to make some extra money. For the last eleven years, my graduate research papers and, recently, my master’s work have been freely available for download in PDF format. Much of my work was downloaded consistently. Many of my papers were downloaded over sixty times in a week over several months. With that amount of interest, I thought if I charged a reasonable price, people would pay it. I set up a PayPal account, designed a new webpages to sell my work in PDF format, and charged $2.00 per PDF. My most popular paper during the free download period was Cholera: The Work of William Farr and John Snow, so it is the first item offered in pay per download. The second item is a project Decolonization and Indo-China. For $2.00 customers receive by email a zip file containing PDF of the paper, the in-class PowerPoint presentation, and the presentation handout. Neither item has sold yet.

Graduate level papers are not going to sell like hotcakes, but based on available data, I hoped to make at least one sale week. Is there anything I can do to improve my chances?
