18% conversion, yet been told to give up?

8 replies
Hi all,

My best ever site, which has earned me $5, which to me is good ! Has a conversion rate of 18%. This has inspired me to make it as big as I can.

However, I was told on WF not to even both with it, and give up. As my content is pulled from WP Zon Builder - WordPress Amazon Plugin for the Amazon Affiliate so the posts are essentially [wp-product]

What can I do to make it better, grow it and rank it. Should I give up with wpzonbuilder and put the products in manually? I spent 99$ on it, so I'm still 95$ down so I don't wanna give up

    I'd keep using it but just reword the content

    Learn from it, scales up to similar products/services that offer higher commissions, and if you maintain an 18% conversion with higher ticket items you'd be making more in one or two sales than you're currently 'out-of-pocket'.

    Conversion data isn't usually accurate until you have 1000+ visitors. Just something to keep in mind.

    If you've already made $5 - why give up?

    Obviously, something, somewhere is working - identify what and scale up.

      I love it when people always just say scale up -- like it's that easy.

      Something that has made $5 is nowhere near something that is proven enough to be scaled up.

      If you have something making you a few hundred dollars a day, fair enough. But not $5. That's not to say you aren't doing something that can be scaled up but with such low earnings, it's nowhere near tried and tested.

    If you could use it on multiple sites, it sounds like you'd need to make 20 sites to break even in the first month or so. Then the rest is profit.

    You could re-word some of the content, add some more written content, youtube videos and pictures can all help too.

    How are you getting traffic - if it isn't Google any issues with duplicate content is not such an issue.

    It depends. If you have been putting tons of hours of work into your website for just $5, then I suggest you move on to something else. However, if traffic is growing, then you should maintain that growth, keep wpzonbuilder, add new unique content, etc.
