A yrs worth of work finally paid off!

35 replies
Hey guys,
I started IM just a little over a year ago by launching a review site. Been making about $1/day with Adsense and a little here and there with Linkshare. I got a full-time job and I haven't done much IM lately, so when I checked my Linkshare account today, I was totally surprised! I had $700 in my account! This is a huge motivator for me and will start going at it again. Someone bought a $7,000 product and I got 10% commission.
All the hard work I put in finally paid off. All the money I had to put down all made back with this one order. I gave up on IM but it didnt give up on me!

    Congrats. Now focus on more promotion of that site. Never get distracted by other "so-called new techniques"... continue to improve what you are currently doing..

    Great job. Sometimes it takes a while to see results from your hard work, but all hard work eventually pays off

    Scale up, rinse and repeat. This is just the beginning, but an excellent motivator.

    That's awesome! I feel I should tell you that you really shouldn't have adsense on the same pages that you're doing affiliate marketing (not sure if you do, just saying). The reason is because adsense drives people away from your site. If someone chooses to click on an ad rather than purchase something, you could be missing out on a commission. Does that make sense? Also, keep pushing traffic to the page on your site that earned you that big commission.

    Good luck,
    Joey

    Right on! $700 would be an incredible motivator. It's very possible to add a few more zeroes to that number.

    Awesome..

    Reminds me when I had a clickbank account. Made 2 review sites and forgot about them. More than an year later, I saw I made $150 in that account, but lost all of it (CB deducts a monthly fee if your account has been inactive for a couple of months). Lol

    By then, the site domains had expired. I didn't miss it much as my main job is that of a web developer and I was just "trying" affiliate marketing on the side (I had some free time).
    But still, if you think about it, $150 for 3 hours of work is not bad at all specially with NO seo or promotion.

    All in all, it was a 'nice' surprise...

    That's the thing, with BIG ticket items like that your conversion rate can SUCK and you still make a great profit.

    IM is a wonderful companion if you treat her right

    Nice. Follow your bliss and IM might be your thing or it might not but if you persist in anything you will generally find your way.
