    I think That for that kind of sites, 8507 viewers is not really enough To see Sales.
    Also , Organic traffic is good But it takes buying keywords to maximize the sales on the site.
    Good Luck

      Actually, I disagree. The amount of traffic is one thing, the issue here is the engagement with the visitor. You need to find out in what stage of the buying process you come into the picture and what needs to happen to complete the sale.

    Have you look at your products and services? are they relevant to your visitors? if not than you must have to rethink on your strategy. Choose a relevant product and drive targeted traffic to your website.

    Also you have to get targeted traffic you need to think about what category of people might want to buy your product and their location.

    I understand your concern. I'm sure you're not the only one facing this issue. True you need to re-evaluate your product and see whether you have the right targeted audience. I will assume that your views are approx 3 weeks old(based on your post).

    In this case, in order to weed out those that are not interested in your product you need to consider the following steps:

    1. Have you set up a call to action on your page to collect emails?

    2. If yes, have you set up email sequence in your autoresponder to give them more details about your product?

    3. If no, have you considered a strategy to follow-up with your viewers? Eg, chatbox, offering a free download etc..

    4. If they've not been too convinced about your product and hence did not buy, you'll be really encouraged to find out that a cool volume of sales will be generated through regular follow-up emails.

    Many say that the money is in the list. But I will say that the money is in the follow-up. Please check if you have any of the above in place. I'm sure if you you can provide them with follow-up info you'll get there.

    With 8507 views and no sales.. I'm sure there's something your audience is still missing, which I think is about more info about what your product can do for them.

      Thanks for your valuable advice. As I'm still very new in this e-commerce business, i have not set up any chatbox or to engaged my viewers to subscribe to my site yet. But if i were to get my viewers to subscribe, i don't know what to offer as free gifts as I'm dealing with tangible products.

    Whats the site look like and are you warming them up thru emails or just trying to sell ?
    product on the site? If you do that it probably will be a losing cause to be honest.

    Need to have more personable communications.

    You should have converted something with that many views. Check your outbound traffic and ensure your affiliate links are setup. Does your AliExpress affiliate account show any affiliate clicks?

    If you are getting affiliate clicks, but no sales, you may consider the following:
    • Do your prices match AliExpress prices?
    • Are your product descriptions accurate?
    • Are your quantity requirements accurate?

    Also, don't forget, many products on AliExpress are sold as "lots." If you are promoting a Nail Manicure set for $5, the visitor may be required to buy a minimum "lot" of 20 for $100 when land on

    There is something seriously wrong if you did not get any sales with 8500 views. Either those are not real views, you need to change your sales page, or the product is not in demand.

    Do you have a sales funnel in place?

    I think you should have a sales funnel in your business. Did you get the email of these visitors?

    If so, are you following up with them through email marketing?

    There a few things to consider in order to make sales online...

    you have to follow the targeted traffic. what type of product you sell you have to target that type of traffic. as like as if you have a dog tool shop you have to go there who have dog and like as dog related fb page and other social media.

    Getting clear on your site Ricky, and how you assist people through the site, can give you clues.

    If you see a healthy chunk of traffic and no sales it means you fear losing money. Largely. Always a reflection. Like a mirror.

    Feel that fear. Let it go.

    Then, you will likely move into different actions. Actions that precede making money, like:

    - helping people through your blog
    - helping people through your email newsletter
    - helping people through Warrior
    - helping people through Quora
    - helping people specifically interested in your niche, wherever the people are hanging out

    What usually happens is you change the copy, the layout, the overall site design, and you do the things above to create quality, targeted traffic. Buying traffic. Because when you help people who are interested in what you have to offer through your site, 1 or 10 or more of those people who are generating the views will simply buy what you are selling. But you need to get clear and to get clear, you need to feel the fear of running out. Because you can't see clearly when your mind is clouded by fear.

    As for the site itself, if you are using scarcity based marketing tactics - lots of exclamation points, capitalized letters, ad copy designed to scare folks into buying - you have to be really really really clear on an approach, or most folks will not touch you with a 50 mile cattle prod. Because most IMers who use that copy do so because they fear losing money, and send virtually all visitors to the hills, because desperation repels.

    A handful of top earning IMers are clear on this approach, so they earn top coin. But not too many. Most gals and guys use this type of copy to manipulate people, and deep down, feel crappy about it. But when you are just being you, and helping a lot of folks in different spots related to your niche, and of course, when your ad copy and site design reflects your generosity and helpful nature, both the traffic numbers and profit numbers will rise over time. Get clear, be patient and things will turn around for you.

    Embrace that fear dude. You will be happy you did. Then you can open up to my suggestions above as well as the rich collection of practical tips offered by the experienced Warriors on this thread.

    Happy Selling.

    With that kind of traffic and no action I'd seriously look into "referrer spam"

    If you find out that's what's happening, here's about the best info I've found for getting rid of it.

    Unfortunately, if you have a referrer spam problem, it's complicated to fix.

    Getting traffic is not that hard task, but creating conversion from it is. Try to make your website more user-friendly, put some useful content in it so that people can find it easier to navigate and use. and check if you are getting the site specific traffic, it depends on the keyword you have selected.

    why are you complaining when you have not even built a list.

    That is your job as a business owner, and entrepreneur.

    Without a list, you are BOUND to fail. I know 3 millionaires, and none of them got to that level by NOT having a LIST of customers to advertise too.

    So do not ask, why am I FAILING, you must ask, what actions do I now have to take, to see change and sales.

    That my friend would be put up a squeeze page or pop up so that you can capture names and emails. I mean, I failed hard until i starting building leads each day. Now I am clearing a nice monthly income.

    Anyone in here, that says build a list, listen to them. Because they know how this works. start slow and keeping building. Its amazing how just 10 fresh leads per day can totally transform your business.

    So far i have 8507 viewers. Despite good organic traffics,
    Please define "good organic traffics."

    Are they coming from search queries? Are they specifically searching for your product? Are they looking to buy something?
