    Hey Everyone,

    Well this month was really great! Last spring I was making a killing, an unbelieveable amount that lasted about 4 months or so. Then I got bumped out of the top 10 for two very competative keyword phrases and dropped by about 35% in take home $.

    Over the summer I was still earning increadible monthly checks but not quite the same amount as I was during the spring time.

    I took one month off in June and then really put my head down and worked hard in July and Aug ...

    I am happy to report that September figures are back up there thanks to some new programs I got involved in with continued sales and leads with programs and sites that were already "out there".

    Hard work pays off ;-)

    How did you guys do?

    Cheers,

    Brian Johnson

    Sept was my best month ever. August was previously my best month but sept beat august by 33%.

    September was my best month ever, as well. The non-network, non-parasitic merchants really kicked in big time in September!

    Hey Guys & Gals,

    Glad so many had a great sept ;-)

    About non-network programs... I love em! Most of my programs are in house and I prefer those to the big networks. Infact this month was the first time I will ever recieve a check from cj that actually means anything.

    Cheers,

    Brian Johnson

    I made so much in September that my wife now wants a 2004 Chevy Avalanche at $42,000. Have to wait until after Christmas though. Predicting that we can earn enough by the end of the year.

    If someone earned $11,000 in September, what do people think December could bring in? I went over $11,000 for September

    Yup, best month ever for me too, but worryingly most of it's coming from just one merchant off one site.

    Biggest earners are through Befree, CJ second despite a ton of traffic and AdSense running a close third.

    Hey cjshoppingnetwork,

    Is your only site the one in your sig line? If that is the case I would say you will see a nice jump in december based apon that site.

    Good luck ;-)

    WOW, congrats to all of you who are doing so well! September was a BIG record breaker for Irvs, DentalPlans and Roadloans affiliates too.

    Irvs Sept sales were more than double last Dec. One of my brand new affiliates made bonus his 1st month too. (He posted his yippee about it in the 5 Star forum.)

    Dentalplans sales are up on CJ about 30% higher than August, breaking their previous best month record.

    Yes, I think the way things are going everyone can look forward to some very, very nice Christmas cash from Santa!

    Ditto. But Sept. 2003 wasn't too shabby!

    Most of the money came from CJ but AdSense also kicked in a nice amount.

    Yes, September was my best month here as well, I will be EXTREMELY happy if every month gives an increase like this one did. Adesense was a big boost here as well.
    Hope this post doesn't kill it.

    Oh yeah, might have jinxed myself. September was ok but was not near what I expected, very sad Hopefully the next few months will be better as September was a disaster.

    September was awesome in the beginning. I had (as some friends tell me) unbelievable conversion rates. I was on track to have an awesome month. Then, around the 15th, the bottom seemed to dropout. Conversion rates are way down (relatively speaking) and not getting better yet. I still ended September with a nice amount but if things don't improve, October won't be that great.

    Luckily, I do have a couple more sites on the burner so I hope to make a nice comeback by Christmas.

    Congrats to everyone!

    Please keep posts like this coming. They are very inspirational.

    Question - All you folks that are making the good money, do you create a site dedicated exclusively to a given vendor/product and therefore have multuple sites? Also, how do you go about getting traffic, SE's, PPC?

    Thanks for any information?

    Sometimes. For me, it depends on the product/merchant. Some are on seperate sites, others go into mall sites, and some are on both.

    It's weird. We've has less sales in September (like the worst month in the whole year), but today (October 1) it seems to start getting back to normal, and even better, if the trend stays.

    Just so those of you who didn't fare so well don't feel alone, September was my worst month in about three years.

    New sites I've put up in July and August haven't began to earn. Earnings from older sites drifted lower.

    Isabel knocked out power to a big chunk of my market, and also put me on furlough for two and a half days.

    Traffic dropped suddenly on a new rising star site, and I have yet to figure out why.

    I've avoided putting AdSense on performing sites because I think opening your door to Google it's a little like selling your soul to the devil, or like letting the fox into the henhouse.
