    Talking How are Sales??
    I have seen a little bit of an increase since Thanksgiving, but I sure hope to see a SUBSTANTIALLY larger increase soon. When does it all start booming? Tommorrow? Cyber Monday? Back to work and shopping on the bosses computers? Anyone?

    Sales seem slightly above this month's average but nothing spectacular yet. I'm looking forward to the next three weeks!

    Nothing special on my aff sites. Rather tombed-out, actually...the customers for the stuff I've got on those probably are checking out the offline malls.

    But, people ARE buying bulbs. I would guess that the offline garden centers have all taken theirs off the shelves, and put Christmas decorations up. Their loss

    Today's supposed to be a busy travel day -- hope it will pick up on 'Cyber Monday' also. I paused several PPC ads -- seems as though they're doing lots of price checking and minimal buying.

    Lots of clicks but token sales. Just remember there are cookies that just might stick on some of those shoppers.. Be careful shutting off too much..

    Thanks for the advice Airstrip...I was having the same thoughts but $$ is getting tight since G billed 2x in one month. This is my first holiday season and I don't know what to expect and am wondering when sales will increase. I really thought that it would start to flow in November but that hasn't been the case.

    Saturday was exceptional. Strong sales. Sunday is starting real good and Thanksgiving was OK. Can't wait until Monday. Cyber Monday is THE day.

    Cyber Monday gaining ground

    Sales are chirping right along here. They aren't as strong as I hoped they would be so far, but I can't complain too much.

    Not as good as last year, unfortunately. However Black Friday was awesome, yesterday not quite so good. CJ seems to have finally snapped out of whatever funk they were in.

    November has doubled what I did in October. Looking strong.

    November is going to be at least twice as good as October.

    Today is really rockin', seems people have slept off their big feed and are sitting at their computer with a warm credit card in hand

    November is already our most successful month ever, and the 14th, 15th, 16th & 26th in particular were record days. Suprisingly Black Friday was only a slightly above average day for us. I think more people were shopping in the Brick & Mortar stores that day.

    This amazes me. October was a record month here and November will have to close VERY stong to live up to October.
    Funny how this varies from person to person.

    I had a record Oct too, but mostly because of a couple of unusually large sales...

    Things seemed to have picked up in the last 6-8 hours or so. Hope this is a positive precursor to Cyber Monday.

    October and November are about equal here. I had the same experience last year. My income doubled for these two months while December was triple what I earned in either November or October. Hope to go for a quadruple this year!

    I'm doing pretty good overall but it is very disturbing that sales activity is slowest during peak traffic hours.

    Sales started to pop today at some point, across all avenues, not just networks. Some batch merchant sales came through late in the day on CJ, too.

    Get ready everyone! I expect the posts here will be a lot more optimistic in the next few weeks.
    Peace,

    HUGE sales through the Brushstrokes program over the last few days.... things have really taken off since Friday. We were already having a great month, but the last few days just made Nov. the biggest month since we started - and there are still a few days left.

    A couple of affiliates (each doing about $5 - $10k in sales over the last couple of weeks) have really helped push that number up... but it's been a great month and will hopefully continue to get better.

    So keep optimistic, life is good.
