    It's getting to be a daily routine: Sales coming in at a nice steady pace with a nice even rhythm, then when peak traffic hours hit, BANG! - sales just stop for the day.

    Kinda reminds me of the time our downstairs neighbors cut holes in the walls to tap into our heating ducts. The heat worked just fine until they got home.

    Todays sales are like dry heaves. You feel like something should come up but you get nothing but bitter dissapointment.

    I am getting plenty of visitors and click-thrus so I don't think it's lack of people. I know it has to be reporting delays because my quick stats and my reports are not matching up.

    Clicks & Impressions are TOTALLY Off -- Nothing is showing up Correctly on any of My CJ Sites.

    And, Nothing is being reported. All of my sites are functioning -- I checked, And I Have Not changed anything on my Sites -- new links, etc.

    So What's going on???

    Yesterday and today I've had no sales which is highly unusual. I was wondering if there was delayed reporting going on.

    Anyone else have a severe dropoff that hasn't picked up yet?

    Wow McNabb you've been around a long time. Would you believe that I didn't even know affiliate marketing online existed until late January 2004? It's a very hidden income source it seems to me unless you specifically look for affiliate marketing then it's everywhere on the web.

    Are you still making good money with affiliate marketing? Is affiliate marketing getting too crowded with people or is there still lots of money out there for all of us?

    Considering most people have never purchased online and the fact that once someone does they are likely to do it again I think there is plenty of room for more affiliates.

    I realize no one is gonna divulge their sales tactics here, but do most people manually post links each day, or do most just rely on dynamic links generated by software?

    I, myself, run a site where I choose the links each day, so it's tedious, and it doesn't seem to make a whole lot for me.

    Pick out 5 showcase high conversion merchnats and really study their sites offerings based upon your sites traffic mix of shoppers seek. The every few days put up product specials anyone would want to buy if they saw that brand/model and the price on your pages. Focus -focus -focus your sites referral traffic rahter then fool with waisted advertising efforts.

    I do well if I can make sure those 5 showcase merchnats get 90% of the click from my site's traffic. The other 285 merchants can suck eggs as they've proven over 6 years they couldn't or won't convert even if they were one of those 5 showcase merchants getting 80-100/clicks per day. Do you notice 5 merchants at ABW willing to post the monthly conversion ratios? Didn't think so as most are just recruiting here and hiding the fact they allow even the sleazest affiliates-SE spammers into the fold diluting their conversions ratios to where they are a joke ...without the tricksters.

    If I ran a network, any merchant not getting a steady 1 sale per 150 clicks would be put on probation. No exceptions as they'd have to then pay a per-click ..plus a per sale fee to get off probation.

    I am with you 100% about the merchants that do not have s performing average should be put to a test! But that means they take a chance losing the merchant so most major networks cow tow and dont say anything and just let the affiliate take the shaft as we all know. What makes it worse when the affiliate networks get to big like CJ and Befree then they stop even caring because they can offer low prices to merchants to get them to their network, that as well keeps them there. If they do not pay there affiliates that send them sales then they just say well we are the biggest and have all of these merchants so the affiliates will have no choice but to stay with us if they want to represent many of the well known merchants. that sucks but that is happening as well. WOW< JUST HAD TO VENT! How many people feel like we get used and abused to make money for these merchants and all we ask for is to get paid the chump change of the items that we help sell from there sites. I feel like the 265 you mention should be dropped into the probation pit and not be able to keep promoting their programs unless there averages increase with the affiliates they have that would make the merchants actually start trying to help the afiliate make money which should be the case anyway, right? I at least thought that was the way it was supposed to work.
