    this month I made well over a thousand dollars, all from CJ!!!!!!

    This is a first for me, and something that I thought could never, ever happen to someone like me.

    I have health problems which make difficult for me to hold a regular, Mon through Friday, 9 to 5 job. I always wanted to support myself, and felt very depressed in having to always be so financially dependent in my family.

    I dreamed of a stay-at-home-job. And I must admit I fell into some obvious scams (out of desperation).

    Then my sister bought a computer. I learned HTML and thought about becoming a web designer......

    But one lucky, happy day I stumbled unto Commission Junction

    At first I just put up some links and thought I'd make some big money.....but made only pennies. I tried then the freebie stuff and made some more (call Wave was WONDERFUL for a while), I thought I could never made any real money doing affiliate marketing. I became discuraged and again looked elsewehre, where I had a sad, very humilliating experience which send me back to A. M. I was very depressed. I came to ABW, and really studied the forums, the posts, and started to build pages like there was no tommorrow.

    The funny thing is that by working from home and choosing my hours I can work more than the regular 8 hour day. 4 hours working, an hour break, three more working, another break, and so on gives me the ability to work ten or twelve hour days!

    This whole year I took to working on my pages with a vengance, and this month it finally paid off!!

    If I could only find the words to eplain how good this makes me feel!

    But I have no words!

    It feels so wonderful to be able to help my family after never been able to before, to finally give after years and years of just take, take, take!

    I finally feel good about myself, and finally, FINALLY have hope for the future. The feeling is...WONDERFUL.

    Thank you God for guiding me to A M and CJ

    Thank you CJ fror providing a way to acomplish what I never thought I could. Please, please never stop providing a chance like this to people like me.

    And finally, thank you ABW. Thank to all of you who contibute to this amazing forum.

    I want to particularly thank all of you who have answered my posts, and have been patient with my stupid questions. A big {{{{HUG}}} from me. Your generosity has made a big difference in my life.

    I've written this post with my heart. I'm afraid that after I read it again it will seem to corny and I will be sorry I wrote it, so I'll post it before I change my mind.

    THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!

    Netsu,

    Congratulations, you can do it all over again, if you find something that works, repeat the cycle.

    Guess what? Not only CJ pay's, there are hundreds if not thousands of merchants that do pay, you have the main networks and then the hundreds of independents....

    Go on, dream big and i'll look for your post next year where you hit 10 K !!!

    Congrats to you !!

    Congrats netsu for being able to wade through the ABW posts to find the parts that work for your site. Bet it has something to do with conversion ratios.

    Congratulations Netsu

    It is possible to earn a LOT more than $1,000 per month. Don't just use Commission Junction. Like Andy stated, there are other places you can use to earn money.

    Keep building those pages, and then build more sites. Keep going. There are thousands of merchants to choose from.
    If you can earn $1,000, then why not $10,000?

    I broke the $1,000 back in February. I thought that was a lot of money. Now I am earning over $10,000 per month. Now that is a lot of money. Why stop at $10,000 though?
    Keep working on those pages. If you are earning $1,000 then you have got something right in this business. Build on that success!

    netsu, your post brought tears to my eyes and I thank you for posting from the heart instead of editing yourself.

    Someday another affiliate will post here, that they were ready to give up, but after reading your inspirational post - they were able to find the strength to move on and be successfull too! That's part of what makes ABW so great.

    Congrats to you and may your checks continue to get bigger and better every month!

    Congrats Netsu

    Success stories are great and keep people motivated. I remember last year coming to this board making about $250 a month (much much better now) and the success stories kept me going. I like seeing the progress people make. Keep us up to date and let us know when you hit the $2000 mark.

    Wonderful! I am happy for you. Listen to Andy. You can triple that.

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Farewell, CJ! I loved you when you were young and pure. I will try to remember you that way. Disclaimer: Comments are to be interpreted as opinion unless otherwise noted.

    Gordo... Amazing - simply amazing!

    A real big congrats Netsu. This is a tough industry and only poeple with lots of grit, dedication and some skills can pull off really making it.

    From a southern boy who regularly eats grits - here's to your grit !

    Kudos, well done, congratulations!

    ===================================
    Child labor laws exist yet, parasite partnering merchants (PP Merchants) and the COC allow an adult affiliates income to be diverted into the pockets of parasites and consider it normal business!

    Why give parasites unlimited cookie durations and credit for sales where they divert our users and overwrite our cookies. PP merchants and the COC directly supports what many consider unfair trade practices, identity theft and thievery!

    Netsu, your post was inspirational, not only the financial part, but also your joy at being able to help others. You may have health problems with your body, but not with your soul.
