    Not that I hate google or anything but many of you know that our main money site was tanked with neg seo. We had JUST gotten the site to $8k+ per day at the time and then suddenly BANG down the $hitt3r!

    Anyway we have been scratching and clawing ever since to recover our sales and through affiliates, yahoo/bing and Press releases we have made up most of it.

    Anyway today it just past 12:00 noon and we have more than $5k in for the day.


    How? same as everyone else, Black Friday deals. We offered a one day 25% off coupon and sent it to our email list, posted it on our facebook fan pages, my fb personal page, did 3 press releases leading up to it which are showing at the bottom of Google page 1 for "KW" and "KW black Friday sales"

    We are likely to have a record day today, I hope we have customers left tomorrow! :)

    *Hint the end of the world is coming 12/21/2012 so having end of the world deals or Christmas deals might not be a bad idea. Already cooking up some offers for those.

    Awesome, congratulations man! "end of the world deals" sounds like a plan, maybe an ebook on "how to go to heaven" at a discounted price seems like the appropriate thing to sell for the occasion. :p

    Good job! I'm hopping to have pushed around the same today - shame my margins are so small. But my overheads are minimal so it all works out.

    Whoa, $8k/day is pretty impressive!
    I assume this is your own product?
    Great Job, let's see $12k!

    Yes we own the product,e-commerce site. We just broke $8,200 right now...I am sure it will slow down drastically later but I am hopeful that we will hit $15k+ today, if we get to $9k that will beat our previous record pretty easily. I hear a sales guy on the phone now with a client, so our # will go up a bit soon!

    Margins are obscene, in a good way! Just broke our record, $9200 at 3:00!! :) Oh and even without google we are doing about $150k, now if we ever recover we will be over $200k p/month.

    Magento....the owner handles the merchant account therefore I am not sure of who we use.
