My Build A Niche earnings have plummeted to $18.80 for the month of November as you can see in the picture below. What’s worse is that I am not convinced that I am getting credit for sales now as my sites traffic has not changed.
For 4+ months now my commissions have looked similar to what you see below up until November 11th. I have alway had commissions coming in every day or so with a three day gap being the biggest. Then, starting on November 12th you can see that only one sale was made for the rest of the month. Again, I must add that my traffic, while not being great to my BANS sites, has not changed.
I emailed Commission Junction support to make sure everything was working and they said it was. I emailed them a second time to bring to their attention that after Nov. 11 something seems very out of character as I am getting hardly any clicks or sales. Again I got no satisfaction from them as they said everything looks good and it must me a “slow time for you” and so on and so forth.
If my traffic had changed that would be one thing but it hasn’t. I hate not being able to be sure that all my links are working. That’s what I hate about affiliate marketing: if you are making no sales you have no way of knowing for sure whether it is because no one is really buying or whether you have something set up incorrectly. Maybe everything is OK but then again maybe it isn’t and I have no way to find out. Frustrating.
Anyway my BANS numbers for November are $18.80 from Ebay commissions and $14.40 from Adsense for a whopping total of $33.20. Woohoo! Let the party begin…drinks are on me!
