The last update on how my personal affiliate marketing campaigns were going was made nearly a month ago, so here’s what’s new.
Since the title of this post gives it away, I’ll just get straight to it. Yesterday, I set a new personal record on my affiliate marketing campaigns by bringing in a total of $1,671.82.
My previous best was $1,500.00 (exactly), but was made back on January 2, 2012, so I’m happy to set a new one.
That is gross, however. While I’d love for all of that to be profit, it doesn’t include my costs. Whenever you read an affiliate marketer write about income, you should always assume it is gross unless they specifically mention net or profit.
So how much of that $1,671.82 that I made yesterday was actually profit? $531.10.
That’s an ROI of over 45%, which is extremely high for such volume.
$531.10 in 1 day is actually not a new net profit record for me, but it does come close.
Below is a screenshot of my PeerFly dashboard that I took a couple of hours ago:
It was taken just before noon, and you can see that today (the 29th) already brought in $1,082.97 so far.
My goal is for today to hit $2,000!
Wish me luck on that.
Credit Card Limit Woes
Now that I am spending over $1,000 a day on advertising, I’m going to need to apply for another credit increase on my Visa soon.
I wish my bank had better reward credit cards available. Right now I’m using a Visa cashback rewards card, but it is capped at only $250 a year I believe… making it rather pointless!
Maybe I should look into getting the Gold Elite Visa instead… it’s 1% cashback and I don’t see a cap limit anywhere. There’s an annual fee of $99, but who cares. Do any of you have this card? Do you know if there’s a cap on the cashback?
If the other successful offers I was running before weren’t stopped and I was able to run them again, I’d actually be grossing $5,000 a day believe it or not.
One of them actually might be coming back soon though, so let’s cross our fingers on that. If it does, I might just be netting close to $1,000 a day!
More Affiliate Marketing Tips Coming Soon
I have a ton more affiliate marketing tips for you guys coming soon.
If you haven’t already read them, be sure to check out my two most recent affiliate marketing tip posts:
I spent a lot of time working on them and they have a lot of valuable information in them.
My upcoming ones will be a lot more specific in terms of tips, tricks, and strategies.
I’m still learning this game myself though, so don’t expect a magical formula or anything. I’m not really comfortable in writing such guides because any success I’ve had in affiliate marketing thus far has been very limited and somewhat inconsistent.
The best advice I can give to anyone still struggling to launch their first profitable campaign in affiliate marketing is to not give up. Yes, it’s boring, generic, ancient advice, but it’s also good advice.
Also, don’t forget that in an affiliate marketing campaign the difference between netting –$10 and $10 is enormous, while the difference between netting $10 and $1,000 is far smaller than you might think.
