I've analyzed the pages on my website that are getting the most hits, and I'm very happy to say that the page that is getting the 3rd most page-views is the "course" that I'm selling for $47. This is the main monetization of my site aside from my $9 ebook (which has been selling about 20 copies per month for the last 3 to 4 months).
Aside from this all of the page-views is for individual blog posts (which of course has a huge banner at the top linking to my course).
Of the people that are viewing my $47 course page, I am converting about 1% to 3% of them. That number is just a guess, but judging by the fact that over the last 30 days I have made 16 sales of my course out of 607 total views...I am estimating a 1% to 3% conversion rate...
My eBook page is about the 5th most viewed page on my site, and the conversion percentages of that page are a bit higher. However, I'm much more interested in making course sales over eBook sales.
I have done ZERO paid traffic as of yet...all of my traffic comes from making YouTube videos and posting links in the description. Aside from that, I post individual blog posts to Reddit 1 - 2 times per month.
As far as money goes...In December I made $1220 in total sales (between the course and the eBook). In January, I made about $820. So far in February, I have made $140.
My primary milestone that I am trying to hit is $3000 per month.
Considering I've been at this for a little over 1.5 years so far...Do these stats sound okay? Better then average? Worse then average?
I've been told that usually people that stick with this stuff tend to really "blow up" in years 3 to 5...I'm hoping that's true for me.
