    Sales Are Slow Today - Government Shutdown?
    Wow, my sales are slow today. I wonder if the Government shutdown has caused people to clamp down on spending? The stock market did well today???

    Seems like a typical Tuesday to me. "Most productive work day of the week" - for non-gubment that is ROFL.

    Least the stock market didn't drop 120+ like yesterday.

    The sky is falling - again...

    My CJ sales are way down today. Currently at 7% of yesterday. They are going to need to pick up soon...

    BTW, I've got the traffic, they just aren't buying.

    I think CJ reporting is stuck. Are they rolling out new UI in the portal? Has the commission detail popup always looked like that? None of my batch merchants have reported in and sales are lagging by at least an hour.

    Several million people are on the brand new Health Insurance Exchange websites today - and creating real server issues for many of them. Maybe just "browsing" there - but not much buying going on for us - either.

    I didn't think about the psychological affects of the first day of the insurance exchanges. If someone thinks they have more expenses on the horizon...

    Conversely, hundreds of thousands, actually probably millions, of us who have been paying for private insurance for decades will now be saving thousands of dollars on premiums.

    I was trying to manually add sales before the end of the month last night on CJ. The form worked but it didn't record. Came back several hours later and still didn't work but this morning it was there.

    I could only see that if somehow they were linked to the insurance exchanges. To get ACA availability and rates, you have to go through the state exchanges, cannot do it by going directly to any insurances companies, whether or not through affiliate links.

    Add: Thinking about that, if people think they can and click through affiliate links to health insurers, there wouldn't have been many, if any, sales, but link gen could have been busy, and maybe some money earned.
