    Cyber Monday Sales
    Mods, I looked for the usual Cyber Monday thread and didn't see one, merge me if I just missed (and sorry to waste your time, but I did search for it).

    My Cyber Monday was FANTASTIC, best day in a long time! I looked back several months and stopped, deciding to just bask in the glory of it versus continued deeper searching. It was a great, great day for me with my profits for the day, after netting out all ad and other costs, of 5x my average daily profit value (looking at last 180 days trailing average daily profits).

    A 5 banger for Cyber Monday!!!

    Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Consumer!!!

    That sounds good.

    My Cyber Monday sales were just like every other day, $0.

    I can say that we did very well ourselves on the merchant side of it.

    I've been flooded with traffic starting at 4:00 am. Good conversation rate but I had better years. Average sale amount is down. I'm not complaining, I made during Cyber Monday 10 time the average amount of an other day. It's slowing down today.
    But, overall what I like the most is to be 100% free of these merchants allowing BHO's on LS, CJ and GAN. No free holiday traffic for them.

    Not much of a bump here, but I love good news anyway it comes.

    That's great news, Donuts! I for one, on a personal note, did all my holiday shopping Sunday night and into early early Monday morning (like 6 am time). Weather was terrible out and everyone knows the place to be is online

    Did any of you have any breakthrough merchants? Those that just outshone the rest bar none?

    Very strong sales here! I'm waiting for CJ's performance reporting to catch up and Linkshare's totals to trickle in, but the initial numbers are great. Hopefully an indicator of a strong December to follow.

    And now with the data in, definitely personal bests in terms of traffic and sales.

    I had a record # of sales, but not comi$$ions amount.

    But all the hours I put in making special black fri/cyber monday page and adding new merchants was wasted, not one sale from that it seems.

    I was glad to see some high ticket items moving very well.

    I did have several standouts, but that wasn't it, it was a broad swelling thing.

    Great to hear Donuts! Especially good to know one of the ethical affiliates is making money, despite all the thieves in our midst.

    I had a very good Cyber Monday, too. The fun is just getting started guys ... the next 2 weeks should be a pleasant reward for all our work. :-)
    Peace,

    Costs? Do you use pay per click?

    My Cyber Monday rocked, but my Cyber Tuesday has been even better (and the day's not over yet)! Gotta love this business!

    Anyone want to guess which network I've seen the most growth on?

    Cyber Monday increased 50% over last year. Tuesday has been strong. Get this - I doubled sales, but had zero ZERO sales w/ linkshare merchants Monday. That is insane. I keep checking for corrections, but none have shown up.

    I'm actually seeing the most growth on Linkshare of all places.
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    I would assume Google since that's where I have by far seen our biggest increases.

    Great to see that almost everyone had a AMAZING Holiday weekend. I too had quite a spike in sales volume and overall traffic. Furthermore, the store did close to half a mill on Cyber Monday alone. Needless to say, that sets a brand new record!
