writing a kratom guide sounds fun
and doing kratom videos sound fun too

Anyways, getting down to numbers, this is what I need to know:
Avg. Cart Value for a new customer? (on avg how much is first order placed by a new customer)
Avg. Customer LIfetime Value? (on avg how much does a customer spend over their lifetime)
What affiliate network/software/cart are you using to track affiliate sales?
-- Can people be sent directly to your blog/site/forum thru my affiliate link and I get credited with the sale eventually when they buy? Or does each purchase have to be made by clicking on a buy-link with my affid on the actual buy link?
Each new customer is permanently assigned to their 1st referring affilaite then?
I'm aware of the 80/20 "some people order way more than others"-effect, but I just need to know averages based on all data you have up to this point.
Feel free to PM if you prefer
huge thanks and congratulations
1) The average first order is now $52, the newbie starter pack + shipping. But sometimes people just buy HH1 1oz, $14.
2) I have no idea.
3) We our own software - OpenCart. But are upgrading it.
4) I don't understand what you mean here... if they link your Happy Hippo Affiliate link (which takes them to Hippo), you'll get 20% of their sales for 30days. If you send them to Good Looking Loser to look at my Kratom guide (and they don't click your Happy Hippo affiliate link, you won't get the sale). That's why I encourage people to make their own Kratom guide, and put their own links it in.
5) I think so. This 'lifetime' commission isn't as easy to implement as people think. I want to give affiliates 5% on EVERY lifetime sale their referral makes, but I can't have people signing (purposely or inadvertently) signing up existing customers to a lifetime commission. So the lifetime commission won't be a "native cookie" that can be cleared from the cache. It will be permanent thing so no one and steal/add existing customers as their lifetime affiliates.
Please no Private Messages. Post thread on with the word "Chris" or "GLL" in it if you absolutely need to get my input. Thank you for your understanding.
Chris have you looked into UltraCart? inexpensive, and a SHIT TON of features, notably exactly what you're talking about with lifetime 1st-referring-affiliate-lifetime-attribution-without-a-cookie . Can also auto calculate affiliate commissions and mass-pay (using paypal), or you just do it however you want and mark as paid.
Not very fancy but its extremely versatile, and relatively easy to setup... ultracart.com
Good stuff, not looking to get into affiliate marketing and stuff just yet myself but all of you who've been looking for opportunities, Chris is giving you the golden goose egg right here.
Definitely wanna see some people's affiliate sites when they get to that point -- kinda tempted myself simply because i've been wanting to learn wordpress already.
Chris this an absolutely fantastic guide, not just because of the Kratom offer, but because this is exactly the kind of template that if you work hard and put your effort and energy into you can make niche sites off of and create a passive income with.
The value in this cannot be understated, and i have read a lot of 'free stuff' in my time. This is really valuable, just apply the lessons with kratom affiliates or your own niche and i can see it paying off handsomely.
Superb work man, it was most definitely worth the wait for the get paid section to get up and running and you really smacked it out the park.
Oh and as an aside, just about everything you've recommended on GLL that i've bought (BCAAs, toothpaste (so much this), soap, frigging bathmate, some random accessory stuff etc) has been AWESOME.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
