    It is nice to keep the first check. My first check from the net was actually from a eads.com which is now gone. It was just $15 and I didn't cash it , but I lost it . This check was the turning point which make me believe the internet is a window of opportunities.

    Kpuc,

    Way To Go! That first check is the killer one. It's the one that starts the addiction.

    I think the main reason is becuase it makes you think, WOW this is real and not just a gimmick. People really do make money doing this online thingy. At least thats how I felt when I actually received my first check. Keep it up and Good Luck.

    kpuc,

    Isn't a great feeling! I waited months to make the minimum for my first check. Keep at it. It won't be long before you are getting $70 per day.

    Congratulations on the first check, that is great.

    I still have my first check. I was actually to embarrassed to cash it. It was 78 cents.

    Thanks for the support everyone

    I have to deposit this baby because money hasn't been coming easy. But, I'll definitely scan it and put it on my wall first.

    For sure, the first payment/check changes everything. It showed me, that it works and that there are a lot more of those checks out there waiting to be cashed hehe

    Hello AffiliateBuddha,

    Read your post "..Attack on ..city.." and found you are from INDIA. Well I am from INDIA too and really glad to meet my countrymen on ABW.

    I am actually new to AM and have few questions...

    1)How do you get your commision checks (which mode, post etc..)? How prompt is the payment cycle from networks/merchants? How much time does it take on average for the checks to get cleared with bank?

    2)Do you have an account on CJ? since when I tried opening one INDIA was not among the listed country.

    3)What all affiliate networks have u joined with? List the best & reliable one based on your experience...I have yet to join any..presently I am gathering as much info. on ABW as possible.

    4)What do you mostly rely on FREE SE traffic or PPC?

    Hope you dont mind clearing my doubts, it will really help me move ahead in AM.

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards
    Ajit
