I've been browsing around this forum for the last day or so and have received some tremendous value so far.
Thanks to everyone that contributes!
With that being said, I figured I would start to contribute by doing a bit of a case study.
I have been testing a new niche (dog training) and from the outside looking in, everything seems like I should be doing well.
I'm using Google AdWords as my only traffic source right now and from an adwords standpoint, I'm doing well.
Avg CPC is 0.12 and after a week and a half of testing, I've spent $114.
155 opt ins at a 15.6% opt in rate with only 21 people having unsubscribed from my list.
I have 10 Follow Up emails setup so far so and in case it wasn't clear, I am promoting a clickbank product to see it's viability before I hire someone to create a product for me.
Now with all that going for me, I haven't made a single sale.
Kind of frustrating!
The keywords that I have been targeting so far have been keywords related to dog training using the google insight tool with "dog training" being my main keyword.
I'm hoping someone can shine some light as to why I'm not getting any sales yet as it seems obvious that there is a market to me given the opt ins and all the metrics seeming to indicate a profitable niche.
I was taking a shower earlier and an idea popped into my head as to why I might not be having success with this niche yet but I want to get some of your guys' input before I throw that idea out there.
Thanks so much!
