    It really depends on the offer / sales page and process.

    If you're sending traffic to an untested, garbage sales page that could be 1000 hops

    Depends on so many factors especially the product and the traffic (just to name a few)

    If you threw a weight loss product in front of those who are extremely overweight and are looking to lose weight ... well than you are probably going to have decent numbers.

    For some hops I have gotten hundreds of clicks and no sales, while on the other hand I have gotten sales with in just a few clicks.

    That's what everyone seems to be saying. It depends a lot on the quality of the traffic also. If the traffic that you send is targeted and pre-sold you should be able to being that number down a lot more.

    Hi there,

    Honestly, no! It very much depends on what products you are promoting, whether you are targeting a particular sub-niche, how much it costs! It's got to do with demographics too and plenty of other variables!

    I have promoted products where I'd get a sale for every 15 clicks and other where 300 clicks would go by without me getting anything! You sometimes get a "bunch" of sales out of nowhere!

    I really depends on how you run your biz and what kind of promotion you're doing! The same applies for "how many articles before I see traffic"! You just won't know! The variables are pretty big there so, I don't want to discourage you but it's best to think from a different angle and with a different perspective!

    Good luck

    Yoan

    Actually 100 clicks is the average but keep in mind that the average decreases if its cold traffic. If you are promoting clickbank I would recommend you do seo, article marketing, forum sites, and blogging because with search engine traffic you will get higher convertsion rates which will increase your sales per 100 hops. Which mean with cold traffic or untargeted traffic it might take 300 hops to generate a sale but with super laser targeted traffic you could easily make 2 sales every 100 clicks.

      Ohh it's very hard to establish an average EPC rate for any market. It certainly isn't 100 either.

      If you'll excuse a dissenting perspective, my own experience is the diametric opposite to Alvin's.

      I promote about 30 different ClickBank products, have been making a full-time living from this for over 4 years, and am an affiliate in 8 entirely different, unrelated niches. In all of that time, search engine traffic has been uniformly the worst-converting traffic out of everything I've ever tried.

      Search engine visitors to all my websites typically stay the least time, view the fewest pages, opt in the least often and buy anything by far the least often. Search engine traffic - even when I've splashed out on professional keyword research from trusted experts (which I don't do any more, now) - just isn't well qualified or targeted enough for my business.

      I do get floods of it, I admit (because off-page SEO happens to be an incidental side-benefit of my major traffic-generation method) but I certainly wouldn't want to have to make a living from it. Others' mileages may vary, but I'm quite convinced that for myself search engine traffic and ClickBank products don't really mix.

        Alexa, would you share which sources of traffic have been the best for you please? I am currently getting traffic just from PPC, just starting...and trying to stay positive and get better results! Thank you in advance!

    Like everyone said, it depends on certain circumstances.

    - Quality of traffic
    - How you conditioned that traffic before and after they opted-in
    - Price of product (in some cases, people might not want to get a cheap product and are willing to pay more for a better one)
    - How often you promote (You need to do this alot and if you don't, you'll only make a list of freebie seekers)

    I've sold products on CB with small hoplink visits and none with a ton of hoplink visits (which I toss out of my autoresponder completely).

    Test, test, test is the only way to know.

    It depends on your niche, your method of marketing your CB product, the sales page of the CB product, and the quality of your traffic.

    There are too many variables that will affect the conversion of the product. If you are driving quality traffic to the offer, I will test it with at least 200 unique clicks before I make any conclusion. 100 unique clicks testing is too small the sample size.

    I don't think 100 hops / sale is "average".

    I'd think 150-200 hops / sale would be closer to an "average".

    But it depends on so many factors like people say.
    I have 1 product right now with 100% conversion, but when it gets more traffic I'm positive that will go down.

    My personal average right now is 1 order every 166 hops.
    I saw someone getting 1 order every 120 hops and thought he was a genius. =]

    No Average. Some products may convert 1:500 others 1:20 others 1:100 etc (this is supposing that you're sending targeted traffic of course).

    This info can help (nothing to sell as it's closed but still valuable info):
