Tip to increase Sales Online

38 replies
Hi Warriors!

Today i want to share with you my way to increase sales online.

Basically, in order to do that, we all know that we will need to increase

the amount of traffic.

But here's the thing. If you increase amount of traffic only

without increase your conversions, you are going to beat your business only.

You will either have to pay more money for traffic, autoresponder or time in order to

increase your traffic and gain nothing, or nothing much. You will GET HURT...

To me, i will increase traffic a little bit, just to have the data to know

what should i do to OPTIMIZE, in this online world, OPTIMIZATION is really important

So my way is try to read the data, or base on the data to TWEAK my system

to have better conversions.

I hope this help!

  • Good point.

    It's important to go in with the mindset that you are ALWAYS getting a result.

    Some people, maybe more, think a 'result' is when you make a sale or get a sign up, when in fact, 'data' is always the result you get whether or not you make a sale or get sign ups.

    Instead of paying for traffic; always look at it like you are paying for 'data'. That's your result. Always. It never fails to deliver.

    Adios.

      increase the amount of traffic only

      So hope that this can help some of you avoid my mistake

    What you're referring to is called CRO - Conversion Rate Optimization

    There are several levels to this

    - qualify your traffic: are you getting traffic that actually wants to buy OR can be convinced to buy?
    - optimize your content funnel: walk your readers through KNOW / LIKE / TRUST stages
    - optimize your call to action: once you have readers who TRUST your content (they are on the TRUST page) - use the right CTA to get them on your list
    - optimize your list
    - optimize your pages' social media sharing capabilities

    There are many steps to this and requires quite a bit of experimentation

    you made a good point 'If you increase the traffic but don't increase conversions you can hurt your business because you are spending more and not getting a return on what you are spending.

    You're right.

    Most people don't have a traffic problem, they have a conversion problem.

    Anyone can build a squeeze page and buy leads. The bottleneck usually comes after that point.

    That's why it's super important to learn how to sell. Learning copywriting and psychology is the best thing you can do.

    It will help you turn your words into cash.

    And it's fun.

    Find places that get you sales. Test them small and the places that get you the most sales and profit, scale with them.

    You bring up a great point about optimization. You need to optimize your page to your target audience otherwise people are just passively landing on your page and leaving. I think less very specific targeted traffic is far more valuable than high volume non-specific traffic.

    Yes, you are right. Most of the people think about the traffic rather than the conversion rate. But sale conversion is more important otherwise there is no used to spend a lot of money on driving traffic.

    The advice is sound, but the bottom line is knowing the numbers in your business before you do any kind of advertising. You should know your cost per click, cost per lead, and cost per sale. With all 3 of this information, you can make predictions in your business - assuming that you have targeted your prospects correctly.

    So traffic alone won't do it. When you know your numbers, and you have a good way of making a profit... all you have to do is advertising/market in a place where your ideal prospects are, and let the numbers come to life. Let your marketing funnel take care of the rest, and focus on getting more predictable leads that will get you the results you're looking for - and predicted.

    Good point there! Conversion is a key area that needs to be focused on. I've experienced it firsthand that by trying to boost your traffic only, it results in higher expenditure that may lead to unnecessary losses.

  • 1 - Be highly targeted

    2 - Promote competitive offers

    3 - Monitor performance and tweak as required

    To me, the most important thing is to have the traffic. Even if you do not convert, having it gives you the impetus to work on how to oprimize your funnels to help you convert the traffic.

    I dont understand to well your thread .You mean to test some offers until we are sure that they convert and after that to try to push as much traffic as we can

      Hi Spartan 14.

      I meant, i need to check our data and see the number, if we have positive return on investment.

      Yes, when we confirm that we have positive return on investment, then we should definitely push
      as much traffic as possible into it.

    Great said by you!
    I also agree with you. if you have traffic on your website, then instead of increasing it you should always optimize your site on user-interface easy usability and easy payment gateways presentation.You should know how to convert that traffic or provide them value instead.

    Thanks!

  • I'd like to add that every traffic source is different and deliver different CTRs and type of quality customers the bottom line is to be targeted and truthfull to your offers.

    Can you share the product or service vertical in question? That way we can help you better.
