What I'm I doing wrong with this site...

7 replies
Hi Everyone,

My site is in a popular niche "paid surveys", but I own an ebook that has over 450 survey companies so I figured I promote it.

The site looks great, gets a good amount of traffic, but poor conversion. (1 sale in every 350 visitors)

Now I know "paid surveys" is a bit competitive niche but I sell the ebook very low $16.99 so I figured it would do well.

Can you give me your honest feedback on what I'm doing wrong.

Here's the sample url: 450 Paid Online Surveys

Thanks in advance!

    The headline is not believable.

    It just promises too much for too little, and there's too many out there promising the same.

    I know whenever I've received something like that I've deleted it immediately.

    If the reader doesn't get past the headline you've got no chance.

      I just scanned your site but this is what I think. You should give a picture of yourself and make it a little more personal. Other than that, I think you should lead them up to it from an article that is friendly or personal atleast. It just looks like a sales pitch and Im not sure if you are giving them enough information before the landing page.

    Not much time for a reply...

    In short, it's unbelievable.

    $200k/year? Even if it's true as a casual visitor I call B.S.

    Have you looked at clickbank products in your niche that are converting well/high gravity?

    I definitely agree with putting a photo of yourself on the page, somewhere near the top so it greets your visitors.

    Add an identity to that page. Put a picture of yourself at the top and welcome the visitor - build trust

    It currently looks like a cookie-cutter site and thats not good for conversions.

    Do you have screenshots of whats inside the member's area? Include that as well. Walk the visitor through the entire process. I was a bit confusing with what to expect inside.

      Hi there

      One thing that struck me right off is a there is an inconsistency (probably for good reason) between the headline and opening sentence. $25-$150 per hour headline and opening para goes with $75 to $250 for a 25 minute survey.

      I realise that the reader should assume averages in the headline made up of various surveys paid at different rates, however they may confuse this and build a picture of inconsistency that turns them off.

      Thanks
