Although I know I don't have much to contribute, I know I have the right to contribute a question. I hope this question sparks imagination in newbies like me to discover answers... imagination is the only thing that has kept me going in life with ALL of my failures. Thank you for your time. )
Here's the question:
How do you guys keep track of the conversions (a synonym to "sales" as I understand the term) that you generate to a small business? To be more specific, I will give an example... If I were to pitch a small business that I would offer them "free" traffic/advertisement in the form of my website directing their customers to use my coupon code to their "service" ...how would I hold them accountable to make sure they paid me commission for each one of those transactions? ...I understand how Amazon keeps track of its affiliates via code, but what about the smaller companies?
I ask you in the most humble way. I have been researching and pursuing "affiliate marketing" for about 5 months now and to no avail I have yet to receive a single paycheck. I just recently joined Warrior Forum because my mentality of "do it on your own without any help" has led my wallet and dignity of time wasted in the same state 5 months ago.
...I'm humbly asking for your help. My goal 5 months ago was to make $100 per month via online marketing. I have yet to reach my goal, and my Adsense account still reads $8.18. VERY Respectfully, Thank you for your time.
