Need help with a website (feedback)

34 replies
Hi everyone,
I create affiliate website in health niche and i don't know how to promote it.
I tried BingAds, FB ads but I don't get any sale.
Right now i got 25$ and i don't know what to do. Could anyone advise me something?

Edit:
Thank you for all the answers! I will be creating videos on youtube soon.
I would also like to try Solo Ads. How can I get them?
Should I pause BingAds?
And most importantly, would you give me feedback about my website? (reducestretchmarkstips.com/) what to change/add?

My Bing stats:
#ads #solo #youtube

    If you asking specifically about Solo Ads or Youtube, then my advice would be to go with YT. But I would also say, don't just buy ads. Rather, create a channel and build yourself a community.

    YT is by far one of the best ways to build a following and a community. But of course it does take some time and work. But think about it this way...

    Say you are in the Diet niche. And you're looking to build a niche email list. Would FaceBook be good?

    Well, sure, to a point.

    But then think of YT. People are literally typing in their questions about diets, YT is just like Google (big surprise) and people use it to specifically search for information, unlike FB where your ads are more of a nuisance.

    And this is great because you can create videos that target specific keywords. Then shoot a decent video answering their questions. And then link out to your squeeze page, website, whatever you're doing.

    So a simple answer, go with YT and build something that you don't always need to be spending money on...especially if you're down to your last $25!

      Thank you! But if my website is about something like skin brightening cream do you still go for Yt? My website is just 3 pages one is review and the others are simple hacks.
      I mean it's hard to build Yt chanel about very specific niche

      I haven't seen that problem answered quite like that. You chose your words very eloquently. I agree with you about the ads on Facebook being a nuisance. YT is a good way to go.

    Solo ads won't be a good fit for that niche. They are mainly for the "make money online" niche, and you wouldn't want to send that kind of traffic to a website or blog. You would send solo traffic to a lead capture page.

    YouTube and Facebook ads can be a good choice, but you'll have to read their terms of service and make sure your ads are in compliance. When it comes to health related products, specifically in the "weight loss" niche, Facebook and YouTube are VERY strict. Bing ads is also very strict when it comes to that stuff. In fact, most of the major paid advertising platforms are.

    However, you can advertise successfully with them if you make sure you word your landing pages properly and don't make extreme promises. I played around with the health niche a few years back and found it very difficult to get ads approved. In fact, my Twitter Ads account was terminated when I tried advertising a diabetes product. Since I'm diabetic and know what I'm talking about and knew that this product was very good since it helped me personally, I didn't think it would be a problem. The powers that be at Twitter disagreed.

    As far as building a YouTube channel around the niche, I would think the more specific the niche is, the easier it would be to build a community. I would even recommend starting a Facebook page and group about it. That would allow you to used the "boosted post" advertising feature, which can be very effective if done right.

      Thank you! I've heard that solo ads are only good for making money online niche but I don't want to promote something I don't know. After 8 months I still don't make anything so it will be good to make a page on FB about something like skin brightening? or go in beauty niche?

    Nova JLE,

    You should have one FREE marketing source and one paid traffic source when just starting out. YouTube is a great place to get traffic, but it will take time to get consistent traffic. Solo ads also work, but $25 is not going to get you enough traffic to amount to anything.

    A general note on traffic, they all work, but they will all take time to perfect. You need to focus on one at a time until you get the results you are looking for.

      Thank you! In that case I have to work on the free one. But it is harder for me because i don't really speak english. Whenever I have something to write I use fiverr. For a paid traffic source I would focus on Solo Ads or Fb because Bing Ads work almost automatically. I do not know if it's good but i got 43 clicks for 2.25$ but without conversion

    Personally, I don't think you ought to be spending any money right now. You don't know what you're doing yet, and to be buying any type of advertising without understanding what you ought to be doing to get traffic and conversions is a great way to toss all your ad dollars down the toilet!

    Take some time to learn what you're doing. Learn to set up a squeeze page with a relevant freebie (in your niche) and begin keeping an email list. Learn how to attract some free traffic so you begin to understand what IM is all about. Set up a professional web site in the niche and begin nurturing your list members.

    Certainly paid traffic should be a strategy for you in the future. But to be burning through your savings without a clue about what you're doing is not smart at all. Set up a good selling system first. You can do that with organic traffic (lots of suggestions about how to get free traffic here at the forum). Don't buy any ads until you know you can get an ROI that is positive.

    The best to you,

    Steve

      Thank you for your answer. I already have a website and just want to check if the traffic will be converting. For testing, paid traffic should be the fastest way. Maybe my website is not good enough and that's why I don't see conversions

    You need to figure out where your audience is first off .
    Secondly and this is just as important to figure out . What benefit are you offering your prospects what do they get in return should they opt-in and join you ?

    • Profile picture of the author Nova JLE
      Thank you! I believe it is even more important to know how to reach this audience. I don't know if it's true but once I read that usually 1-3% of targeted traffic convert and 1/3 of them buys without any convincing.

    i agree with steve b. YOU HAVE TO LEARN BEFORE YOU EARN BRO. if it was this easy, everyone will be doing it. there is alot more to it than that. bing ppc is all about testing. most of the time, you will not make money on the initial offer. you have to collect their email and then keep sending emails about the offer and eventually they will buy.

    • Profile picture of the author Nova JLE
      Thank you for your opinion and I fully agree with you. I still learn a lot but you also have to test what you've learned. I think my stats on bing ads aren't so bad. For this week 47 clicks, ~6% ctr, spend 2.48$. So it is possible that I don't have conversions because of my website

    Solo ads are great for building a list- you do not make a sale every time but you will get Opt in's to you list which you can later convert to sales. You Tube is a great outlet and can easily make you money if you put out quality content.

    I recommend YouTube because it will be there permanently and Solo ads are a one off deal with NO GUARANTEE.

      Thank you. I know that YouTube can be pernament source of traffic what is pretty awesome. I will certainly focus on it but 25$ it may not be enough
      to create a good video. I know that you can create something extraordinary even in PowerPoint but even excluding the creation process you have to spend on promotion. That's why I want to get more money first to create later something that I will be proud of.

    Your details are very vague but let me give you a bit of advice.
    Sales = targeted traffic + converting funnel. Bing ads and FB ad do work if your targeting is done right and you funnel is good. If you are sending traffic directly to an offer, that is crappy funnel because there are so many factors that determines why a lead makes a sale. Putting a landing page and an offer next is another crappy funnel that brings low results. For example, lets say you are promoting a nootropic, the first step is to create buying profile and see who and why they will purchase the offer. In this example, one of the buying profile is college students trying to have better memory. Now, you go ahead an build a funnel. You start with a leadmagnet giving actual solutions on how to improve memory, the lead consumes your lead magnet, implements those techniques and see results. Now they trust you and will purchase what you recommend if they have the money. Once you funnel is built properly, generating targeted traffic becomes very easy. Between Solo ads and Youtube, it all depends on your funnel. If you have a crappy funnel, go with solo ads, you will have better luck of making a sale with it.

            I looked at your site and your bing ads campaign. The campaign you are running is supposed to be going to landing page for a leadmagnet on tips to lose stretch marks and you indirectly sell them the cream in the leadmagnet and directly in the followups. For this particular site http://reducestretchmarkstips.com/ your keywords should only be "stretch mark removal creams", "stretch removal creams review" e.t.c and all exact matches

    With only $25 you can only try Youtube seo which if free. You need to research and find some keywords in your niche which are profitable and with low competition. Then you create some videos around these keywords and upload to youtube.

    Sometimes it's best to abandon a niche before you even dive into it. That's my advice to you. Pick a small niche that has a high demand for something, a starving crowd..... that you can throw your product at and they will buy it almost as soon as they see it. There are WAYY more ways to get traffic and customers other then Youtube and solo ads. Time to start from scratch.

      I think this is not a bad niche. Health is evergreen. I try some others niches and this one is the most promising.

    With this huge budget, you can get around 25 clicks and around 10 subscribers.
    If I were you, I would make YouTube videos. For free. Health niche is ridiculously popular on YouTube.
    On the other hand, for $25 you can buy a link in a description from a youtuber or a blogger in your niche. Probably, it would bring you more traffic than solo ads or YouTube ads.

      Thank you for your answer. Such a result with solo ads could be enough if the audience will be good. That's why I chose health niche - it's evergreen. Also how to buy a link from a blogger? It can be a great opportunity
