DealDotCom Update

I was recently asked if DealDotCom was still making me any money.  When I last provided an update I was 3 1/2 months into using DealDotCom and had the following stats:

Tier One Affiliates: 62
Tier Two Affiliates: 263
Profit Made: $392.01

After analyzing my stats a little bit I decided I really needed to beef up my down line if I wanted to continue making money.  Knowing that John Chow was on my Tier One list (he is no longer there, I’m not sure what happened, and that is a big loss), I pinged him asking him to provide an update post on how well he has done with DealDotCom.   While he did reply stating that he was planning to post an update on his blog, it never came.

Since then DealDotCom was slipping, there was a period of time that I didn’t make any sales, so I basically gave up on it.  I figured the products were not of the same quality, and the “newness” factor had worn off.  After being asked how it was doing for me, I logged back in and analyzed my statistics.

As of October 24, 2008, I am up to 96 Tier One affiliates and 270 Tier 2 affiliates.  This is up from the end of December, with very little to no work done to promote DealDotCom.

Here is my earning chart:

As you can see after 2007 my profits slipped greatly, however remember I had all but given up on DealDotCom.  It is however encouraging to see that so far in October I have made $16.00 from three (3) sales, one from a Tier One and two from a Tier Two.  The last promotion I did was my blog post in December.

With that being said I am off to try to get some of my Tier One affiliates to promote DealDotCom on their blogs.  If they sign new people up my second tier will get larger which means more money for me with no work.  Unfortunately my biggest Tier One (John Chow) is no longer listed, however I was able to recognize another large player Jon Waraas.

Jon made a post titled, DealDotCom It Really Works, back in October 2007, so I sent him an email asking him if it is still making him money with it and if he would update his blog readers with his progress.  We will see if he makes the post, I’m guessing he won’t, but I figured it was worth the chance.

If you have a website that targets webmasters or marketing visitors I’d encourage you to give DealDotCom a try.  Not only do they offer some great products at big discounts, the affiliate program can’t be beat.

3 1/2 Months Later with DealDotCom

In September I had caught a blurb about a new company that was about to open called DealDotCom.com.  They were going to take the concept of Woot.com, a one-day discounted sale, and apply it to internet marketing products.  The kicker with this particular company was they were going to offer a very nice affiliate program, 35% Tier One, and 15% Tier Two.

I decided to take a risk and spend some money promoting the program.  I figured if I could get a decent number of people signed up directly under me, I’d have a good chance of earning quite a bit off of their sign ups.  I understand this is a MLM concept, but two-tier affiliate programs are widely accepted.

It worked!  I was able to recruit a decent network and have made decent money for very little work.

Here is what I’ve earned so far with DealDotCom:

That is $392.01 for a program that I focused on for 15 days.  Defiantly worth it if you ask me.  Now I know why the serious internet money makers swear by affiliate programs!

I am currently sitting at 62 Tier 1 affiliates, which gave me 263 Tier 2 affiliates.  I am able to rack up the income on their purchases for life which is truly passive income at this point.  Am I totally happy?  No!  If I can keep building my network, I will keep making more money.  I also realize that I need to try and make sure that the people that signed up under me don’t forget about the deals at DealDotCom.  This could be harder, but if I keep promoting it on my sites hopefully they will see it and remember to check back in every once in a while.  I also need to find a way to get some of my Tier One sign ups to review the program so they remind their audience of the site.

If you want to get in on the action, register at DealDotCom (Its free!) and go your account page to get your affiliate link.  If you dig around their blog you will also find banners and additional links you can use to promote their program.
