    You do SO great with share-a-sale, and I can’t even make $1! I’ve read your posts on it, but it’s just not clicking for me. :/ Maybe it’s my niche? Congratulations on your blogging success!

      I guess you haven’t yet found the right products or companies that really resonate with your readers. Are you actually reviewing the products personally, showing you using them and making it personal? There is nothing better than a personal review to get people to take a look. Have a look today at my latest post on the sewing site for my new dress form – hits to my store today have been huge because I am personally recommending a product I love to use myself.

    Would love to learn more about setting up an e-shop, and also about growing a Facebook fan page.

    Deby, I don’t know why it never occurred to me to delete newsletter subscribers that don’t interact with the emails. Thanks for pointing out this simple way to cut costs on paid newsletter advertising.

      Well I’m always reluctant to do it Jelli, but if they never open them, I assume they follow along in other ways such as Bloglovin or an rss reader etc. Or simply aren’t interested any more. When you get over 5000 subscribers and again over 10,000, the costs of sending a weekly newsletter really adds up!

    Thanks so much for sharing as always. I made my first $200 in affiliate money in December … early days but still whoop, whoop! Actually made most of it from Amazon but Share A Sale and CJ now starting to convert.

    Anyway have now got a huge heap of questions for you … very ball park how many different advertisers do you get sales from each month on S-A-S and CJ and how many have you got active?

    Also do you know roughly how many click-throughs you get on S-A-S and CJ and an average conversion rate. I know the clicks have got to come first and they might not immediately convert to sales but haven’t got a sense of how many clicks I need to be getting to get anywhere near your income.

    And finally … for the moment 😉 … a tricky one … do you have any sense of the average window in which your clicks convert. I have got a few lead based advertisers that are doing well which I like because even though it’s only tiny amounts of money it does let me see that people are actually signing up when they click-through but otherwise I am still in that wait and see game with lots of the clicks as to whether they will convert.

    Sorry for deluging you – Alice xx

    I LOVE reading your monthly updates, they are so inspiring. I don’t have a blog-but have thought about it. However, I work full time. But I also have a decorated cookie business and just started a small digital printable store on etsy in Aug. I’d love to see some tips maybe on how to have “small” blog if that is possible to share both my businesses with others. Not sure it’s even possible. But you always inspire me to try harder. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

    I am so glad you shared this at the Foodies & Crafties Soiree. I am only a little over a year into blogging and have been wondering whether or not to monetize things. Thank you so much for giving information that I feel stupid asking for!
