I got 200 tier 1 emails but no sales. Need advice!

18 replies
Hi everyone! I'm new to affiliate marketing and I want to try selling some offers on Clickbank.

I found that the easiest way to create passive income is creating a funnel and start building email list.

The first product I promote is CB Passive Income.

This month I've total 600 email but It's just 1/3 of them from tier 1 countries (almost traffic is free from my Instagram account)

The open & click rate is OKAY to me (40-50% open rate and 7-10% click rates).

But there are no sale here.... I know the first sale is really important

What's my problems?

Are they buy from other affiliates?

Or my content is not cool enough....?

I really need advices from people right here.

Thanks!

    There could literally be hundreds of reasons why you're not converting. But if your traffic is coming from Instagram and you're capturing emails from a targeted landing page and your emails are being opened... my first guess would be that your emails are not doing a very good job convincing anyone to buy the product.

    First of all, well done for actually taking action and getting started building your list.

    You should be aware that most of your sales will come from Tier 1 countries. So that leaves around 200 subscribers that are ready to buy (which is good).

    Next thing to look at is whether your offer is congruent to how people got on your list. In other words, are they seeing something that matches what they signed up for?

    Quite simply, you need to target your subscribers to the offer you are making.

    Next, are you building a relationship with your subscribers or, as I suspect, going in straight off with the hard sell? People aren't stupid. They know when they're being pressured to buy. And it turns them off.

    So start responding with your subscribers in a friendly way. Yes, you can still include your affiliate link somewhere in your messages, but don't put pressure on people to buy until they've been reading your emails for a few days.

    Sometimes it can take up to 3 months for someone to decide to buy. So, don't think about sales all the time - think about how you can help people with little hints and tips every day. Sales will come, if you continue to help your subscribers. Just be patient.

    How long have you been mailing them?

    Is the offer congruent with their reason for opting in?

    Are you successful in the same field and can come across as an authority?

    People buy from those they know, like and trust.

    Why not just use CB Passive Income itself as a means to make money?

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Biggest problem: "You want to try selling some offers."

    Change that intent/driver to: "I want to solve a specific problem for my niche, and will offer free valuable emails or blog posts, and will link to relevant products at post/email end."

    Solve a problem they are having instead of trying to sell them something.

    What problem does CB Passive income solve in the eyes of your subscribers?

    Do you know what their main problem is?

    Take this thread for example.

    You have the problem of not making sales with your list - and those of us that replied are offering you a solution. (kinda)

    Also how often are you mailing them?

    What are you saying on your Instagram account to get them to opt-in?

    Is what you are saying on IG and on your landing page congruent with each other?

    Have you tried other traffic sources?

    Have you promoted other offers?

    Lots of questions I know but the answer to them can actually help you.

    Get your list members to go through some content first

    Demonstrate CREDIBILITY first

    Also, make sure you build your list from REAL buyers not Solo ads from professional sellers.

    Traffic from pro solo ad sources = waste of time and money

    CB Passive Income is a good clickbank product to start with.
    When you drive traffic to the capture page, those subscribers
    will be on the system's email list.

    Are you emailing your subscribers as well, or are they receiving
    emails from the system only? If you are not touching base with
    your subscribers, this could be where you are coming up short.

    600 leads is far too many for you to not make one sale. You
    said most of them come from your Instagram account. What
    kind of Instagram account do you have? Is it snap shots of
    your day to day life, inspirational quotes, or is it geared towards
    making money?

    If Instagram is your source for marketing, then make your account
    focus on a specific theme so that when people visit your account,
    they know it's a make money gram. This way your clicks will be
    more targeted.

    I would start by saying that you need more emails before making any judgements. Ideally 500-1000 is a decent number to reach before hammering your list

    I think you mean that you built a list of 600 subs. Nice! Now if you didn't make any sales yet, then it could be a problem with your sales page.

    If I use any form of marketing, I make sure that my leads are Instantly' redirected to a very highly converting VSL.

    This way I now have the opportunity to make some 'upfront' income to KEEP my ads running.

    i never do tier 2 or 3

    a mistake people do is get traffic there,

    Here is rule no 1, always get TOP TIER traffic 1, always.

    I learnt this the hard way and trippled my profit after I figured this out. Its only part of your problem, but hope this helps.

    As you are in MMO niche
    (i) Move to warriorplus, products at W+ are cheap with OTOs so they convert better (I did it months ago and made my first sale there)
    (ii) Build trust and relationship with the list give something for free,tell success stories about making money online etc.
    I hope it would increase your sales
    Edit:-If you can afford, hire a proffesional writer and see whether you see results or not?

    Make sure your affiliate links are not jacked-up. You may not be getting credit for sales if the links are not right.

    So the traffic that you are buying is not good at all and if you get 100's of new subscribers from the same source of traffic, guess what? You are going to get the same results which is 0.

    Always test your traffic SMALL and see which places get your leads that convert to sales.

    You have to be willing to do that.

    Let me get this straight: You are selling an Aff. Product from CB that teaches others' how to make money selling CB products but you can't even sell ONE unit of a CB product????

    The viscous cycle continues in this industry...

    So you got 200 subs who have the wherewithal to buy anything. Add to that, they are "surfer" traffic and your lack of sales is not surprising at all.

    Target people who are actively searching for or researching your product or service.
