Hi all,

Just got my first sale as an affiliate from my site http://www.successdept.com

Looking foward to many more.

The sale was from the page below which when I viewed this morning only had 5 hits, so that could be a nice little conversion.

Weight Loss Package
#$3390 #sale #yey

        Yeah it is certainly not an easyway to make work this internet marketing.

        Having said that, I only had this idea last Wednesday. So from idea to first sale was only 7 days. It has taken a lot of man hours though and around $200 for scripts and designs.

        Hope you make your first sale soon.

        I'm curious. What have you been researching in all that time?

        Maybe we can help you out if you give us an idea of what have you put into practice that hasn't worked?

      It sure is, however this will be a real success when I get a return of $200 which is my break-even point. From there its all profit!

        Hi Burtie

        Congratulations on your first sale.

        Nice site btw. Really clean design. I did notice, however, that some of your pages take a while to load.

            I just went onto your site, and actually even your home page was slightly slow. The weight loss page took the longest.

          I also really like the design, but I noticed this too. I went to look at the weight loss page you link to there and after 20 seconds, I was still waiting. I'm afraid I'm very impatient, and if I wasn't so keen to see your success, I probably wouldn't have waited that long.

          I did then click to the nail biting page and it loaded instantly. Is this site made with Joomla? I have not used Joomla, so couldn't offer any suggestions why just that page took so long.

          Perhaps other Warriors may have some ideas.

            Yes it is joomla,

            For some reason it is not always the same pages that load fast or slow. One could be fast one minute and slow the next.

            I hope that I can find a quick solution to this.
