    Post Expected Sale / Comm Data for Blk Fri / Cyb Mon
    Hiya ..

    this is a really general question ..
    being this is my first Black Friday / Cyber Monday with my aff site ..

    I was wondering .. when should I be expecting sales / commission data to appear or not (epic fail) ?

    I understand generally all the different merchants have different timings for reporting etc etc ..


    Thnx

    There is no special time line for reporting BF sales. It shd report as they do normally.. if of course their servers don't melt down, which happens during the busy season always.

    Well it really depends on what niche(s) you are in. And you're really only competing against yourself. By that I mean how will your BF/CM sales compare to an average day for you? The past couple years I've seen strong sales from this weekend relative to the past month's performances, and that typically continues for the first 3 weeks of December as well. But I can't say in concrete terms what that will mean for you. As far as I know, there's no golden rule to say you should be at 200% of your daily average (for example) to deem it successful.

    Its not a failure. 49 clicks is not the correct benchmark. You need to drive more targeted traffic first. Just 49 clicks is too few to judge a campaign.

    If you are a new affiliate, read up on how to drive more traffic.

    PPC will get you the most traffic fast, but it will cost you money. Plus you will have to please google to have a good landing page quality score, though Yahoo isn't that strict.
    SEO will get you free traffic, but will take quite some time and effort.

    Good luck.
