Why Am I Not Getting Any Sales?
By The Affiliate Team
Discouragement is the affiliate's worst nightmare. Promoting all of these products creating dozens or hundreds of links and receiving little to no sales is frustrating. So what can you do about it if this is happening to you? Well, you need to start by asking yourself how many people visit your site? Did you know that a conversion rate of 2-5% is considered good for Affiliate Marketing? That means if only 2 out of 100 people who click on your affiliate links purchase something, you are doing pretty good!
The trick is to find traffic through a variety of campaigns. Email and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) are a good place to start. If you don't know what these are or how to begin, there are a lot of sources and references on the internet that will help you.
If people are clicking on your links, but simply aren't purchasing anything, you may be sending your viewership to the wrong kinds of products. Use the tools available in the Affiliate Lobby to see what kinds of "Categories" your viewership are purchasing from. (Use the "Generate Sales Reports by Category" tool.)
