    I've made my first sale!!
    Back in January I made a dating website with one of those white label dating companies.. and pretty much left the website for dead after a while.

    Today I figured I'd check in.. and it actually had someone buy a membership! My first sale! (I had a lead with another company, so this is the first sale) Even better, the company is in the UK so I get paid in pounds. Which at the moment is at 1.9 dollars.

    Although I think I need to reach 50 pounds to actually get the money.. but I'm thinking I should refocus on the site.

    Unique Visitors: 189
    Free Members: 16
    Paid: 2

    Seems like a good conversion rate to me.

    Edit: Actually two sales it would seem, mwahaha.

    I think I'm totally missing an inside joke here? LOL

    Thanks though! Can't get much easier than leaving the website for dead, but definitely makes me think focusing on driving some more traffic could be worthwhile.

    Congrats, Hardaka, may there be a constant stream of sales coming your way.

    Hardaka,

    Congrats! I remember when I started in affiliate marketing and the excitement of watching for a first conversion.

    Thanks y'all for the comments!

    Actually, the comm rate is at 50%, which seems pretty good since they're covering all operating costs, software, support, etc. Though there is a sliding scale if you bring in more per month.

    First sales are always great. Congrats. Mine was from a text link on a forgotten, abandoned page in a subdirectory of a blog site. The page name had nothing to do with the general website topic, there was every reason in the world why the link would NEVER be found. Somebody found it despite the odds against him, made a purchase, and it took me several hours to figure out where the $98.00 commission even came from!

    WTG Hardaka!

    This is just the first of many, although well worth getting excited over.
