I just got an email from an affiliate, and to my surprise, it was a notification of a sale. It was really a surprise because I almost gave up on a simple project I created a couple of weeks ago, I didn't even drive traffic to the website!
The commission was $9.46 but it feels like so much more because it's the first affiliate sale I ever made online.
It's not a lot, but it's a start, and it's motivation to continue building my list. Can you guess how many "Hops" were needed for one sale?
I know I probably just got lucky, but there was a grand total of TWO hops through my affiliate link, one resulted in a sale, that's a 50% conversion rate.
So for those of you who are new to this, I want to tell you that it works, and it's possible to make money online. Just focus, build a list, and provide value. Your first sale is just around the corner!
