It was just 48 hours ago when I announced that I had set another new personal record on my affiliate marketing campaigns by bringing in a total of $5,800 in one day.
It was a big increase over my previous record, made just 5 days prior, and it was also a big increase over my previous daily net profit record as well.
And so, I’ve been cringing having to publish this post, as it will be my 3rd "new record" post in a row. It almost seems fake, and while it’s great news for me personally, it doesn’t really provide much in the way of actual information for you guys.
Anyhow, 2 days ago, on January 27th, 2013, I set yet another record on my affiliate campaigns by bringing in a total of:
$5,915 for the day!
While not as big of an increase over my previous record as last time, it’s still an increase of $115.
$11,719 in 48 Hours
During the two days from January 26th, 2013 to January 27th, 2013, my campaigns brought in a total of $11,719.
During the 9-day span from January 19th, 2013 to January 27th, my campaigns brought in a total of $34,697.
Another New Daily Net Profit Record!
Not only did I set another new daily gross record, but I also set a new daily net profit record as well!
My previous daily net profit record was $2,383.09, made just 3 days ago.
My new daily net profit record, set on January 27th, 2013, came out to:
$2,883.89 for the day!
That’s an increase of almost exactly $500! Crazy.
The ROI was very substantial as well, ending up at 95%.
What an insane day.
The Bad News
And now, the bad news.
Being the never-ending rollercoaster ride that affiliate marketing is, I was hit with some bad news yesterday evening.
I don’t want to get into the details of it, but basically I’m going to be taking a hit on my current top converting campaigns. To give an idea of how much of a hit it will be, if you assume that February performs the same as all of January did (with no increase), then I’ll be out around $4,600.
Considering the numbers I’ve been pushing lately, this actually is not crippling or anything, but it is a hit. I’d compare it along the lines of taking a good blow to the stomach as opposed to a knock-out hit.
However, there’s more bad news. Today, so far, has been doing extremely poorly. It’s only 9:07am as I write this, but I don’t like what I’m seeing.
Hopefully things turn around and the day finishes well and this turns out to be nothing, but I’m a little apprehensive.
It’s one of the downfalls of constantly checking your stats – you waste your time and energy on stuff like this. However, on campaigns that you’re trying to scale, and with growing volume like what I’m starting to push now, I still think it’s wise to keep a close eye on how your campaigns are doing.
Lastly, I launched some new campaigns last night with less-than-stellar results. There’s so much I need to work on and test, but I only have so much time.
No New Record For a Long Time
While my last 3 posts have all been about setting new records, I’m pretty confident that you won’t see a new one from me for quite a while. If I had to guess, I’d say at least 2-3 months, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it took an entire year.
Hopefully I’m wrong, but it’s not exactly easy to hit these numbers.
That being said, I’m going to definitely try my best to hit a new record daily high. If I work hard enough, I know I can do it. It’s just a matter of focus and desire.
