Success In Affiliate Sales

March 11, 2009 | By | 2 Replies More

Because I had not posted for so long, you are getting a double-whammy today!!!!!! And this post is not even keyword optimized (shame on me….)!

Reason being – the last couple of days have shown me big time that blogging and affiliate marketing really do work. On Sunday I made a $33 sale through my website Healthy Diet Weight Loss – this site has only very few posts on it, and even though I had it up and running since October or so, I have not worked on promoting it or getting traffic to it (the usual “haven’t got the time”-issue). The site gets an average of 4 visitors a day. So I think this is pretty good!

But the best thing is that yesterday I logged into my Ebay PartnerNetwork account and was greeted wit $129.36 in commissions! Just like that. 2009-03-11_2257This stems from my website Beach Theme Home Decor which is actually my best performer so far. It gets around 160 unique visitors a day mainly from organic search results, which is great! The site is on the first 2 SERP’s for a lot of keywords. It makes a good amount of money from Google Adsense, and my ebay widget works really well! On the other hand, my Amazon store is not performing so great. 🙁

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that if you keep working on your affiliate marketing, you will eventually reap the rewards. Nobody said it would be easy and happen overnight (actually, I’m wrong – nearly everybody in the Internet Marketing niche does, if they want to sell you something!), but persistence will pay off.

So don’t give up, whatever you do! Keep up the great work!

    Thanks Petra, I had read this before and then discovered it again today. I was getting a bit disheartened as I am really struggling to get any traffic to any of my 4 websites. I had managed to get one website up to 900 backlinks and then slowly disappeared. Now I’m down to 160 on that site. I find that part really frustrating. I made a couple of sales last month, which really energized me, but nothing since. My best site only gets about 6 visitors a week. This affiliate marketing is a bit like the “loneliness of the long distance runner”. No one to talk to in other words. Your encouragement at the end of your post is appreciated.
