Good Day everyone,

I'm kind of new to clickbank, and I'm reviewing the reports and I see an interesting quantity of "Order Form Submit" Form that do not transform in "Initial Sales Count".

According to Clickbank information, this happens usually if there is an error when they fill the form, or if the card its declined.

In your experience, does this happens a lot?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

      It goes in fits and starts.

      Yes; I'm afraid that's typically exactly what they do. I know it sounds strange but I believe they genuinely don't appreciate how much long-term business that behavior costs them. :rolleyes:

    Personally I wouldn't worry about it, just keep on driving traffic to your offers.

      What proportion of order-form submits not resulting in commission payments would there have to be, for you to worry about ClickBank's tracking problems, James, and perhaps take the simple actions recommended in other threads here which appear successfully to have resolved them for so many people?

    Hi Everyone, thanks for your feedback, I value your comments,

    Ok, so its not uncommon, right now the proportion is about 5-6 to 1.

    Right now I'm using paid traffic, of course the margins are low, thats why my concern about those "lost sales" as I see them.

    I'm working on getting "free" traffic, but at this point its in the works.

    Thanks for the link Alexa I'll check it out, and also on your question to James, I'm also interested in that, knowing how much is too low, to close this campaign and start looking for a new product.

    Regards,
    Carlos

        Thanks! Can't believe I hadn't found them until now . Out of interest, what percentage of order form impressions do we expect to convert to sales?

    Hi Afilmarket,

    Well, about conversion (and that is another question for me), I've seen that some people consider that 1% of the impressions will be clicks, and that 1% of those clicks will be sales, I don't know if someone else has another benchmark. For me, its been more like 40% of the impressions on search engines convert to clicks and only 0.3% convert into sales.

    What I can see from here is that people click on my add, but not many buy, since I`m doing this as an affiliate, does this mean that the content of the offer is not that attractive?

    I guess it all comes down to how much money you make out of it, right? and If you are happy with that number.

    Regards,
    Carlos

      0.3% conversion to sales is clearly disappointing.

      It suggests that, at least, it's not that attractive as an immediate purchase, to that traffic. But this isn't surprising, if you're not building a list, and building relationships, and making sure that the strength of your recommendation is what sells the product, because few people buy at their first visit to a sales page - the art is to keep them, and not lose them if they don't immediately buy.

        Couldn't say it better myself.. a good source you have provided Alexa, appreciate it!

        About the low conversion rate.. have you connected with your visitors? When people buy, it is because of the emotions that product can provoke. A fancy car, for example, makes the purchaser feel happy and successfull, and even though this feeling subsides with material stuff, it is still the most used method for selling stuff.

        have a look at your website and see, if there is anything you need to rewrite according to this principle.

        -Andreas

      Hi Everyone,

      Just to close the comment on this, yes, I received information from Clickbank with what you mentioned, that maybe they sent the customer sent the information but the credit card was not valid, not enough funds, maybe they are flagged as someone that buys and immediately after they request a refund.

      So, well, we will have to live with it, and keep sending traffic (and yes, building my list).

      Thanks for your help everyone.

      Regards,
