    Arrow For many of us some Monday's are good, but......
    For many of us some Monday's are good, but don't expect that many sales this Momday May 1st.

    Unless you're not in tune with the latest news, and don't know that is going on with the May 1st national immigrants protests and rallies, you may think that tracking is affected.

    So whatever side you're on, just remember that tracking will not be affected, but sales may be way down on May 1st, and there is nothing you can do about that on May 1st, to increase the sales.

    Somehow, I doubt that illegal immigrants buy much online. If my sales are even 5% lower than a normal Monday, I'll be surprised.

    I have to say, although I believe that it wouldn't adversely affect business/traffic, it is starting to look that way. I've had half the number of usual traffic so far for Monday. It may not necessarily be the immigrants that are the problems, but the companies that they are shutting down temporarily b/c of the marches....

    All of my programs are doing excellent this morning, really excellent.

    Looking back at last Monday, from midnight through 1 PM Eastern to compare, I have 84% more orders today thru 1 PM, as compared to last Monday at the same time. And comparing traffic during these 2 similar consecutive Monday periods, today is heavier as well.

    (ps - my study above was a look at ShareASale only - my favorite place to earn comms!)

    The day's not over yet, and it looks like this has been one of my best days this year.

    They don't need to be illegals. Your economy, as well as ours (in Singapore) rely on 'cheap' labo(u)r from countries that have even less to offer. I have a servant here where I live, very convenient indeed. Her monthly pay is less than I make in a few hours online, but it is still more than she would make in several month in Indonesia. She is fully legal and has full rights to ask for proper working conditions.
    In many countries imigrants (sometimes illegals) provide the back breaking foundation for a smooth economy, especially for jobs nobody else wants to take but which are too important to abolish, i.e. agricultural harvests.

    Anyways, not to put this threat too much off topic: my Momday was the best Momday this year as well, and I didn't see any typos.

    Cheers, Frank
