    Woot I broke a personal record in comish
    This is the most comish I ever made for 1 affiliate in a 1 month period and it wasn't even x-mas


    Campaign Orders Revenue Commission
    AFC-Hardwaregeeks 894 $108,608.92 $ 1,792.05


    it's sad that its a pc hardware merchant and the comish is soooooo small.

    imagine if I did PPC or something.

    Maybe I should do PPC with this merchant, i pretty much gave up on PPC after my experiement a while ago.

    You could always try it again to see how much more you can make. If I remember correctly, you did pretty good with PPC during your experiments. With the right keywords, you could really make some serious money (even more than what you have now, lol).

    Was just remembering that

    Also Mike, with your credentials now, maybe you can negotiate some higher commission rates?

    Either way, big grats on your new benchmark.

    As long as you have a daily limit set (something low to start out, like $1 or $2 a day), you can test the waters without worrying about spending too much. Of course it depends on how much your keywords are as well, you might want to increase your daily limit to $5.

    Either way, whatever you spend in PPC you can write off

    Congrats on the sales volume. I've been having some great success with this niche myself, likely the same merchant. I wouldn't recommend doing PPC for Computer Hardware though since the margins are so thin. Would love to hear if anybody has had luck promoting hardware with PPC.

    Congrats on the great results.

    I agree with IOWNIE, it's an inspiration for the rest of us. In a tough economy, it shows anything is possible.

    whats funny is, with this very same merchant, when I try to make sales using their CJ program I get nada, but when I use their inhouse program I make enough to put down a car payment.

    CJ program is doing great here, but I've yet to try the inhouse program. Last I heard they don't report in real time and from the stats you indicated here their commission rate isn't as good. They switched their CJ program to a flat rate across all products which is working out wonderfully for me. I thought their inhouse program would offer better commissions, so I'm surprised to see you're averaging less than 2%.

    Nice. Good for you. It would take a year for me to get to that with all of the merchants.

    Yeah but there are a lot of things ***** does with the affiliates in their internal program than those in their CJ program. Can't mention somethings but they include traffic share type partnerships.
