    I'm slowing down on checking reports, but I still check 'em every couple days. My site is new so I get really excited [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] when I see sales, a little down when I don't. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    I was wondering how is it with you.

    I've been doing this for a couple of years now and I still get excited when I see a sale [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
    and disheatened when I see a reversal, fortunately I don't get many reversals.

    I think when the time comes you stop to get excited it is time to call it a day.

    How do you other guys feel about your sales?

    Probably 5 - 10 times a day. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    So far all of my non-Amazon stuff is on CJ, so it's easy to just leave their reports window open and refresh it now and then.

    I know it won't change what I do -- so it's a waste of time -- but it is good motivation.

    I bet you when I'm making 10K a month I will still look several times a day. One, I'll be worried the sales might just stop. Two, I'm always looking to see it "Jump" to some greater number than I expected. What a thrill that always is. Makes you want to go create 10 more pages!

    I haven't counted, but probably at least 30 times in the average day.

    First thing in the morning, after checking mail, after looking at the news, after visiting abstweb,

    Just before leaving for wherever I go, as soon as I get home, Every 15 to 30 minutes when I'm online,

    Last thing before turning off the computer for the night,

    And sometimes in the middle of the night if I can't sleep.

    Hmmm, everyone seems pretty compulsive report checker, like myself. I really don't feel good about it, but I can't help it either.

    I wish of the days that I make 10k a month and forget my CJ password [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Ah yes, but the reports only change when you're not looking [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I think I'm partnered with about 10 or 11 programs at the moment, so there's a lot of reports to check. I believe I've even partnered with Amazon.co.jp which is kind of challenging since I can't read any of the site [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I check all my programs like Amazon, Art.com, CJ, e-scripts, etc.... about twice a day.

    However, my best merchant sends an e-mail every time I make a sale. I check that e-mail address probably 50-100 times a day! lol

    I check it every 15-30 minutes while I'm on the computer... when I wake up... before I go to bed... during TV commercials when I say I'm going to the bathroom....

    I'm addicted! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Obviously there's a market niche for some sort of reverse-debt-clock device that interfaces with all your affiliate accounts and keeps you up-to-date. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Like MissDonna said. Only I think "30 times/day" would be a vast understatement for me! Maybe if I add a zero to the end.

    Which place's stats get checked varies. The amount of checking is directly proportional to the chance of seeing a rise in the revenue! CJ gets TONS of checking...

    You mean the window that is always open and minimized and refreshed very frequently? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Come on water!

    Boil!

    Darn, all I want is a cup of tea!

    I guess I should go back to the office and wait...

    Check CJ sales window...

    (20 seconds later back in the kitchen)
    Come on water!
    Boil!
    Back to the office...
    Check CJ sales window...

    Repeat 5 times

    When water finally boils, pour cup of tea, return to the office and check the CJ sales page.

    I used to only check CJ once a days, since I only like get 1 sales in about 1 mth. Recently my site got spidered by google , I was surprise to see that I earn $74 on a single Sunday. I have been checking more since then, but it seem like the the more I check the less commission I got. Or is it because on Sunday people are in a more buying mood?

    I've been checking once a day, but I have so many stats stuffed in so many nooks and crannies that I can spend a whole day on a stats blitz. Of, I also run off and check stocks, the national debt, employment statistics at http://stats.bls.gov and have tons of more estoteric things.

    I had been spending about 28.7% of my day checking stats, my goal though is the limit stat checking to under 10% of the day.

    I am making a cool stats checking package that records how often I check stats. I check that a couple times a day to see if I've overdone the daily stat checking. Okay, I spent a third the day checking stats...but it's now on my mind...so I better run off and make sure I am still zero for the day at CJ...where's that cup of coffee...

    I check my organiation's affiliate partner sites once a day. Of course, my advantage is that I had one of the programmers automate retrieval of the stats for many of the programs.

    I also have a web page with links to each stats page of the programs my company works with. This way I can get an instant update any time I'm at a computer with Net access.

    Almost there 7 and if anything I check more often than I did when I made less. Check CJ all the time and love those independents that send email when you make a sale, hehe, that way you don't even have to check.

    How come there's no "Too many times to count" option?

    I guess I missed this one last week which is pretty unusal since I check ABW quite a lot each day. But...not nearly as many times as I check all my program stats. It's kinda nice to know that I'm not the only one that seems to be compulsive about checking. I am always on the look out for "trends".
