    1st Sale Today!
    Joined SAS about six weeks ago and finally made a sale! It was on one of my newer sites!

    Nothing like that first commission to get you pumped!

    I'm with you mate! Never seen a SALE from any SAS merchant that I've promoted...send plenty of people through and know that they've even registered, so should have received a commission but still show a big fat zero.

    Strange when I get daily registrations & commissions from other merchants I promote with other programs....sure got me beat

    Thanks for the empathy David.

    My case is a little different, I haven't seen a sale for *any* affiliate network.

    Mainly because my site is new and tough website rules and requirements from the most popular search engine.

    I still need to figure out how to draw traffic - that's my main problem.

    Congratulation RH&A on your first sale and more to come.

    I add nearly 70% of SAS merchant products (removing mostly cj links) which I joined about a month ago and still waiting and hoping to get my first sale soon.

    Unhappy I'm not sure sales will _ever_ happen.

    I hear ya. I started back in June, and out of 16000 impressions from CJ I've only received 145 clicks, and only 2 sales (mine and my friends signing up through one of the banners). Boo Hiss... just yanked them all this morning.

    For LinkShare, very similar results... about 14000 impressions and 121 clicks... only ONE sale from iTunes that left me a WHOPPING 60 cents in commission... Boo... Hiss... just yanked them all this morning.

    I tried Shareasale for a week as well and got absolutely nothing. I know, not much time to tell, but I mention it to say that it's not the affiliate program that makes the difference, it's how you're using the ads (something I have yet to figure out).

    There's gotta be a better approach, and I'll find it eventually. But for now I'm making more from Google Adsense than I am from CJ or LS, even if it's only a couple bucks a day.

    My main money-maker has actually been affiliate _product_ links from Regnow and oneNetwork (basically same company owned by Digital River). They have some nice coupon offers for affiliates to use on their sites, and I've been getting about $20 a day from those since adding them a few days ago (e.g. http://www.prosoftapps.com on the bottom right). But that's still not very impressive.

    I didn't mean to take away from the original poster's enthusiasm. That's really great news and I know the rush you're talking about! Just trying to provide some realistic stats from my experiences as well. I made $150 on June 1st right after putting up my site and thought this was going to be EASY money! Well, that turned out to be a complete stroke of luck.... didn't get another sale until early July... groan.

    So it can be a long road. Keep those exciting wins in mind as motivators, but prepare for a marathon not a sprint.

    I think creating a website is like writing a book. You create it and let it sit, and if it makes money it makes money otherwise just let it go.

    The merchant was teammascot.com

    It was on a college football site targeting a specific team. My traffic is low for the site, but has tripled since adding this falls football schedule utilizing every SEO tip I've learned over the last couple of years. I'm ranking #1 on MSN and #6 on Yahoo when searching for this teams schedule. - Sorry I can't be more detailed - I'm still a noob and can't give away what success I have had.

    Talking My first sale today too!
    Ah Finallly!

    My first sale ever to a total starnger.

    If it was not for the great support from all of you here at ABW I would have given up on this a long time ago.

    Thanks for the guidance everyone!

    This sale was on SAS , sorry I can't give any more details at this time because I'm just starting in this affiliate marketing thingy.

    Don't give up on Russian Legacy that easily. We're just 47 days away from the start of RL's best season of the year (we make 55-60% of our total year's sales between 1 October and 31 December)!

    Congratulations, Grumpy!
