    Question How did the first quarter of 2008 compare with the last quarter of 2007 for you?

    We've just completed the first calendar quarter of 2008, so I thought it would be a good time to ask our periodic question to members about how the revenue they are earning is changing.

    If you compare revenue from the first quarter of 2008 (January to March) to revenue from the last quarter of 2007 (October to December), how did it change? Did it get better, stay the same, or get worse for you?

    And posts about your thoughts for the changes you have seen and your view of what the future holds are welcome. Do you think the changes between the two quarters is due to general business changes, or is it just seasonal fluctuations?

    I was surprised that this quarter did better than than last. I thought that the end of the year gave last quarter a seasonal boost. As it turns out, this quarter did better.

    Keep in mind that I'm marketing to only Europe, and I can't imagine how the US facing affiliates are doing.

    How are the US facing affiliates doing?

    The first quarter of 2008 has been strong in terms of signups and players. I'm seeing my best 3 months since March last year.

    The first month was dreadful but March made thoughts of January desolve into the past. Was shocked with the improvement. Hope it continues to improve, I am trying to get it together to help the process along.

    For newbies like me, this quarter has to be +30% over last year, as I didn't even have a site last year.

    So, I suspect the results of this poll is being skewed by those that are relatively new to the business. Perhaps there should be a box for 'I didn't have any revenue in the first quarter last year'?

    Income's definitely up so far this year. I'm surprised because I expected the pre-Christmas blues caused by the credit crunch to continue into this year. It seems instead that people have a 'hang-it-all' attitude and are getting back into their leisure activities.

    While my income from a couple sites has increased this quarter, a big hit when PokerDream folded (one of my 3 best producers) has dragged me back to about even with last quarter.
    I also lost the cash in my personal player account at PD which dragged me down another couple hundred...
    Next quarter will be better - I hope!

    Not a good 1Q - but about on par from 1Q last year... it's always slow, at least to me. There have also been a number of very late payments and a major clerical error which should give a boost to 2Q.

    We had a severe loss in this quart because of dramatic fall of traffic due to some technical problems we had leading to some conflict with the Google spider. We have most of our traffic through Google.
