30-50 Unique visitors per day, not converting

19 replies
Hey guys, for the past month and a half or so I have been working very hard at the link building and I finally am happy to say I have a few top 3 keywords in the serps and a lot more page 2 or so...

But for some reason it just is not converting well :confused: I just checked my GA account and from Nov 9, to Dec 9 I have 833 visits at an average of 27 visits a day..

I've made 2 sales so far in the entire month =/

Anyways here is my site

www dot get-him-back-forever dot com

Any critiques would be great.. Thanks

    I'd say you're doing well considering how little traffic you have. I usually get more than that just from initial social bookmarking - but don't often get 2 sales in the first 833 visitors.

    2 words come to mind. ClickBank Shaving. Open a new clickbank account and tag your links with them and you will see instant conversions, it seems once your account ages a bit they do not credit you with sales for months at a time, open a new one and you get instant sales? yea defiantly shaving

    Andy is right. That's a pretty good start conversion-wise, considering your traffic. Here's me being Captain Obvious, but once you can big up that traffic you'll be happy as hell with your conversion rates.

    I like the site btw, nice look. You should get a pop up "opt in" going, either a peel away, or one of those footer joints (like this). In your niche expect to build a nice list.

    thought I'd take a look at your site...hmm... definitely unique niche.

    this is an important product dealing with relationships... high value, so it interested me, being that I'm in the field.

    Why are those 833 going there?

    to answer their questions and get solutions, right.

    But its a big COMPLICATED deal for them.

    So. I would give them a TRUST BUILDING factor takeaway right away, because anyone in need of your solution and those programs, is short on trust to begin with... and skeptical too (don't ya think?) its real personal to them. real personal.

    Answer for them their initial question and assuage the need that gets them there to your site, because honestly your site only looks like you have a "program" or really 3 of them, to sell them. you're not expressing genuine interest in them. you just want to get them to your product... (old time marketing method.)

    no answer to this need of theirs is going to be simple, so its really kindof a harder sell. There's no like "packaged" answer that they'd just go, "okay, let's try that, that sounds cool."

    Also, you might consider NOT giving three reviews...

    couple things about that (and cos i do not know your keywords that brought them there in the first place, i might be way off here, but i don't think so) first, giving 3 options too choose from is not good because you force them to choose and, right now when they land on your site, they don't want to be "choosing" do they, their mind is FULL, get it, FULL already, theyr'e lost too? and second, you call it a "review"... well, what I would do first, is go to the articles you have listed, since they bring up some good tips and stuff... why dont' you start with that... get the visitor engaged in an answer they might value... then get them to your product review page. and Iwouldn't call it a review, call it a "whats it about" page... a "review" is still really looking like your trying to CLOAK your selling to them... don't be dishonest. you want htem to have this product because it does this 1 2 3 ...

    these folks are short on honesty and trust and will jump a mile away from anything phony lookin

    you have a neet site, really, just I looked at it from the person going there and thinking of the friggn! mess they feel they are in, and they just want to be given some understanding and some answers, not be SOLD somethng.

    my six and half cents.

    Good luck to you.

      You know what your absolutely right.. Unfortunately the site is a review wordpress theme that I bought and I can't change those buttons, or don't know how..

      But I think I need to do a little more trust building and offer a little more value too.

      That probably is exactly why it's not converting well because they get there and its immediately buy, buy, buy hmm..

        1. 1. Your site is a bit on the "hard sell" side for sure, but that's not your problem really, considering your niche. Your visitors already expect a crap load of "hard sell". What you give is nothing compared to some. Trust me I've been in this niche. Less of this may mean less conversions - and with little traffic - that would right suck. It might be worth a quick test though.:confused:
        2. Like I said before, you are converting fine mate. Just up the traffic and you'll see what I'm sayin'. Traffic is KING in your niche. I'm actually quite impressed with your traffic/conversions.
        3. If you bought that theme you should have free reign to fix anything within the code. If you don't know how to fix those buttons you can easily find someone here or elsewhere that knows exactly what to do. Plenty of cats around that will correct a small issue for an even smaller fee. And on the off chance the seller told you not to change the template after you purchased, definitely call the mafia... a hit is in order. (kidding!!)

          I am not sure what to think.. I did some direct linking from article marketing selling in this niche and had some success so I decided to start the site..

          Traffic really should not be a problem in the foreseeable future.. I have about 10-20 terms within the first 2 pages.. But yeah i just dunno I DO want to help people not just sell to them but then again.. that's what the product i'm selling is for.. to help them

          No I CAN change the theme just dunno how :]

    If you have the option in the theme, I'd consider changing the color. Bright red sites don't convert as well in my experience. Red = Warning

    Also, your theme doesn't appear to have an <h1> tag anywhere on the home page. You should have your main keyword - 'get him back forever' in an <h1> on the homepage, preferably in the logo.

    Good start with the 2 sales - keep it up!

    Got to go back and look at the chain, are people not click on the link, if so, then change the anchor text, if they are, then are they reading the offer/landing page, if their not, re-write the offer/landing page.

    The point is somewhere you are loosing the visitors, go through the chain all the way do to the order link and see where you are loosing people.

    maybe you are targeting wrong keywords that can't accommodate sales. But try to build images, branding, so later on you can produce conversion. or maybe it depends to your ads, or the way your market your site.

      I just got a sale since I started this thread a few hours ago so it looks to be not too bad I'm getting a sale per every 37 hops according to clickbank stats..

      The main problem is the actual website clicks to hops ratio.. I think I'm only getting about 1 in 4 people who visit to actually click the hops..

      And I am getting an aweber account and making a pop under and a free give away all that stuff tomorrow ;]

        In my experience, the better your content and the length of said content, the less your click-through rate as you have pre-qualified your traffic to a very very high degree, what matters is conversion ratio.

        1/37 ratio for a Clickbank product is actually pretty good, roughly 2.5% conversion(something like that)

        Do you write your own content or do you outsource it? If you do it yourself, you might consider investing in the services of a reputable ghost writer who can write content that is geared to act as a pre-sell and increase your sales.

          It says 1 in 37 on clickbank but I know its more like 1 in 66 because I have to take into account the 2 week pay period where I had hops but no sales.

          I've gotten about 800 uniques according to GA, and about 200 of those have clicked my hops and I've made 3 sales since then.

          I write my own content thus far but will outsource in the future

          I just feel a little dumb about the email marketing stuff because I know its supposed to be above the fold.. give away a free gift etc etc, I gotta get on that!
