    Black Friday and Cyber Monday
    Congrats on a job well done to ShareASale Merchants and Affiliates. Yesterday (Cyber Monday) was a record in terms of gross sales and commissions earned. It came with about a 60% increase in an "average" Monday network wide.

    The overall increase was to be expected, due to the fact that ShareASale has added 100ish Merchant programs every month this year... however, "Same Store Sales" were also significantly up - which means that the programs that were running as of November last year saw some good growth out of their programs for this year.

    As I posted last year on our blog, there are really a multitude of big Mondays on the way up to the shipping deadlines... We saw 5-10% increases in each Monday over the next last year up until shipping became an issue.

    Point is - be prepared for traffic increases, interested shoppers, and hopefully increased commissions/sales.

    The economy is definitely affecting a lot of people and should be taken seriously, but a good point about Affiliate Marketing is that we are all able to diversify into industries that are possibly not as affected, or even new ones as things go along.
    Thanks,

    There were definitely a lot of shoppers online on Sunday, moreso than in past years - my guess is that less people wait to use the internet at work because broadband is so prevelant in the home these days now that there are things like cable, dsl, etc... that continue to increase in the market.

    It is also later in the year this year and my guess is that more people started (and possibly finished) a larger majority of their shopping.
    Thanks,

    Congrats SAS and Brian. I'm glad to see tracking and reporting were not affected by this increase in traffic and sales. It's getting better every year.
