I hope someone can explain this. I really am trying to understand and build accordingly. I am new at this obviously.
Here's the scenario: Almost three months ago I began a blog that I write five days a week. I researched the subject and enjoy writing about it. It is corporateespionage.info where I approach (I think) young to mid business people with the dangers of corporate espionage.
I write about countermeasures they can take to protect themselves.
I don't have a big readership but I am happy with the numbers although I am sure some of you would laugh at them. I have a good portion (4% or so) that is all over the world, which is pretty neat also.
I have three amazon astores which I advertise with clickable icons at the top and at the bottom of each blog. I also have Goliath so I have professional ads before and after each blog. So all the ads when clicked are amazon.com Well done ads.
Here is the problem. I started the ads about one month after starting the blog. I have consistent clicks. For April the numbers were 1136 unique clicks and 1139 total clicks. For May, the numbers so far (the 11th) is 859 clicks with 856 unique clicks.
Some of you may laugh at these small numbers but I am really happy. The problem is that with all these clicks on amazon, I have no sales. None.
It's not that I wrote the ads so badly, as they are being clicked on. But is this real? That many clicks with no sales?
With no sales, I have no idea who is really reading my materials.
What am I doing wrong?
