    I just went through my commission stats for March and they total $8389! I know that this is small potatoes for many who visit this forum, but for me it's dang good. I do have $1838 in PPC and other charges but I am still very excited.

    It's in a very competitive market and I only do this when I am not at my J-O-B. My web site is not the greatest but my merchant's page converts very well.

    I hope that I am not dreaming this...pinch, pinch..nope, it's real

    Congrats westgroup. For me this is indeed a tidy sum. Had a question - are you strictly doing PPC or getting SE traffic, or both. Thanks

    If I had made that much in a month, the first thing I would have to buy is new boxers, er... I mean, yeah, that's small potatoes... pm me with all of the details on how you've done that, just so I can, uh, help you to get that low number up.

    West,

    I think those numbers kick a fair amount of butt for part timing it ;-)

    Congrats!

    Thatís awesome! Truly happy for you! Iíve had my best quarter ever during the first part of the year. I really hope it continues for the rest of the year! Like you I still have a J-O-B, but everyday I wonder if I should quit. I guess itís the security issue, if I knew for sure that I could continue to produce the high dollars every month, Iíd go full time.

    Like you, Iím working on it everyday, and figure I should be able to get rid of that J-O-B in about a year.

    Congratulations Westgroup! That is a milestone and you should be quite proud. Now set your sites on 5 digits to the left of the decimal in a month. After that...who knows!!!

    One day this internet stuff is gonna catch on!

    Xion,
    In January I decided to build a few mini sites in addition to my main site that has many different product on it. I did PPC just for the new sites. I also started writing articles and picked up a ghostwriter at elance. Everytime I would submit an article to an article directory I could see a jump in sales.

    I don't know if my luck will last, but at least I am able to good a good chunk towards my cc bills.

    That's fantastic westgroup, well done! - the best bit is when you look in your bank account and the computer-game numbers become real money!

    That's a wonderful threshold to reach! At that level, you're bringing home more than probably 95% of people do in their day job. And you're within striking distance of $10,000 per month, which is how most people define a Super Affiliate.

    You've obviously found one method that works well. Keep working it, and keep looking for other methods that work. There's no limit to what you can do with affiliate marketing!

    Neat ebiz traffic idea. Maybe I could convince Haiko to publish my long posts into an article directory...with EcomCity links at the bottom LOL.
