What can i do with 8K US/UK/CA visitors?

13 replies
I am running a site which received just over 8k visitors daily; majority are from the US/UK/CA. The site is a blog with 600 articles all targeted and addressed towards fixing windows errors. I earn around $30 to $50 per day with ads but i am looking to monetize it further by using affiliates. I picked tweakbit affiliate which looked very attractive to me where i added Recommened Fix: Download Here above the article title on every post and received 150 clicks to it; (avangate). Now the question is why did i not make any sale? If you look at sevenforums and windowsclub site; they also have the same strategy as mine? What can i do to make atleast $5000 from this site?
#us or uk or ca #visitors

    When someone comes to your site, what kind of a "solution" are you trying to give them. Once you know what it is, find an affiliate offer that solves their problem and earns you anywhere between $30-$100 per sale in residual income rather then earning a one time commission off them.

    You should look at all affiliate options. I use cj.com and shareasale.com have been working well for me. You could also have others pay a monthly fee to list their ads on your site. Try buysellads.com.

    Before selling anythin, focus on what you're doing to make relations with your visitors. How you're helping them. What percentage of those visitors are unique? Are you adopting some strategy to have repeated communications with them..like communicatin on emails, live chat, your own community etc.?

    Its very important to build relations first then when people trust you they will give attention to what you want to sell, whether its any affiliate product or your own product.

    There are tons of ways to monetise your website but imo the first and foremost target is to build relations with your visitors.

    Wish u luck!

    If you think you are earning a very small amount by ads, you can do Affiliate program or, even you can sell your own products, if you have. In case of Affiliate, you must do the referral link which is related to your NICHE. I hope you understand. Best of luck.

    The first and most important thing is - are these people subscribing to your site, and are you collecting their email addresses to build your list? Offer them a FREE product (eBook or free video) and have an opt-in form right at the top - just asking for their email - not name as this lowers opt-in rate. I would have an auto-responder set up to follow on with a high-value and low cost front end product like a 2-day video course for $9.99. The sky's the limit as to how far you build your products and how much you charge. My back end product is $4995 at the moment - but once people Know, Like and Trust you - you can offer even higher cost products.

    Even in the worst case you should get 3 to 5% opt-in which from 8k visitors is 200 to 250 opt-ins per day - that is awesome! 10% of them will buy your front end product which is $2000 a day and once they are in your funnel you can expect 2 to 3% to buy your upsell of $47 which is about one per day. And so on...

    I would be very happy with 8k hits a day my friend and I would be working 12 hours a day to make that dream become a reality. Good luck

      You've made things sound simpler than they are. $2k a day on 8k visitors sounds very unrealistic.

        I'll expand on that throw-away comment!
        It depends a great deal on these three factors.

        a) How good your phone sales team is at converting
        b) how well and deep you have constructed your funnels and follow-ups, and
        c) what back-end funnel offers you have in place.

        High-ticket back end sales are a regular event (weekly and often daily) in the business I am involved with. But it has taken more than 3 years to put in place and lots of tweaking and investment and many blind alleyways to get to this point.

        I will stick to the 40% opt-in and 5% front end sale percentages. You probably know that the average affiliate marketer has to find quality traffic at around 65 cents a click just to break even - so if you have 8k daily visits you are already ahead. It just depends how well targeted the lead quality is and how much they are engaging.

        With the Windows Errors site - you would be wanting to look at creating congruent products in the Software troubleshooting niche - starting off with a free report on Windows errors to get the email address, and maybe a 2-day video course as a front end funnel offer?

        I stand by absolutely capturing the visitors on a list and that this is the place to start off, and building an engagement with them.

    Try not to harm your visitors, make a list and also you can try and create your own product or service that way you can promote yours and won't spam them with different products daily or if your site is about something else and have a lot of reviews start making reviews for products that can boost some earnings while having a not so spam way.
