I'm looking for some inspirational stories about 1-person operation ecommerce sites that started pushing their affiliate program (network or private program) and started seeing some real sales coming via their aff program.

e.g. A friend of mine promotes hobby models via his content site, and drives about 40K worth of sales (gross) to 2 ecommerce sites. I was shocked! I heard brick-mortor stores in the same industry do on average about 30K/month.

So, do you guys have any to share?
