300 clicks but no order, is that normal?

14 replies
I registered an account on cj three months ago, for the first two months, I can only bring a few clicks to the merchant site, so no order in the past two months, but recently, I can bring 20-40 clicks a day to my merchant site, but still no orders, is that normal? I asked the cj customer service, they say the aff links are ok, but I dont know why visitors don't place order, I have a blog and youtube channel, any suggestions? thank you, really confused and frustrated

  • This could depend on the quality of traffic you are bringing in or how affective the webpage/product(s) you are pointing this traffic to is. Try changing around your capture page/funnel if no sales continue to see if that changes your results.

    Check the quality of your traffic. Huge amount of traffic doesn't means that you get sales from it. provide quality and targeted traffic can increase your sales and conversion rate.

    Are you sure all your traffic is real? Are you using Google Analytics to track your traffic? If so, some that traffic might not be real.

    Your traffic is not targeted. And or the offer or product does not convert.

    Even direct linking with a good offer you should see sales by now.

    Evaluate your traffic sources and see if they align well with your target audience. Also, are you sure you are doing a good job preselling the product well enough before sending your visitors to the affiliate product?

    This happens based on two factors.

    Is either (1) Your sales funnel needs a bit of tweaking
    Or (2) The traffic might not be as it seems

    But I will suggest you tweak your sales funnel and make different variations and test with 100 clicks from a different traffic vendor to see which converts best before buying more traffic

    Hope this helps

    Well need more in depth information then just you have sent 300 clicks that is it...

    Analyse your traffic, is it going direct to the product or through a funnel?

    How are you monitoring this traffic? Google Analytics?

    Also what type of niche is this product in, I know you probably don't want to tell us exactly what it is but we can't help if all we know is that you are sending 20/40 clicks a day via Youtube and a blog but had 300 clicks with no sales?

    Give us more information, well help you understand your audience better and help you monetise your traffic.

    Best of luck!

    Based on skimpy information, I'd guess that there's a mismatch between the expectations you are setting on your blog and in your videos and what people are finding after they click your links.

    I recently followed a link for a free report, and it turned out to be a sales page which offered the free report as a bonus with the paid product. Spoiler alert, I did not buy. Nor will I ever click one of that person's links again.

    That's an extreme case, but it illustrates the point.

    Take off your marketing hat and put on your consumer goggles, then go through your own process. Or ask someone in your target market to do so. Look for things in your content that don't jive with the link destination. Then fix those.

    While statistics theory says it's quite possible to flip a coin and get tails 300 times in a row, it's a very, very low probability. If the market/product match is good, and the offer reasonably competent, you should have seen at least one sale by now.

      Beside mismatch, it's also possible, based on what we know, that they're being sent to a page that has a free download, they download, buy from a link in whatever they downloaded, and the OP doesn't get credit for the sale.

        Definitely a possibility.

        Another good reason to go through the process yourself before deciding to promote.

    Look at your analytics to know where your clicks are coming from. When it comes to e-commerce you do not care how many clicks you have, you want conversions.

    It depending on the quality of the traffic you are bringing and also the quality of the landing page. If have quality traffic but the land page is bad, no one would buy...But if having great converting landing page but traffic is bad, might not having orders as well because the traffic may not the targetted one.

    A good landing would be like this, http://myvault.ampstore.io/tour/get-...r-sharing-apps
