    So I jumped into CB a couple of days ago and did something that got me 390 hops and 19 order form impressions but no sales :eek:

    Is this normal? Well, I dont think so...

    Also the traffic is targeted...

    Let me get straight here, I'm promoting commission crusher cause I heard it was a nice thing to promote and people were talking about it...

    Any thoughts by experts?

    Well i would not be that worried yet since its order form impressions and not submits, maybe the product doesn't show the price at sales page ? or people have just clicked to see what happends when you press order :)

    It's normal. Many people will look at the order form just to see what's on the other page.

    If it's Order Form SUBMITS, then you've got a problem. Impressions ... no big deal.

    Also, Commission Crusher has been spammed to death. I doubt you'll get much traction with it.

    I have a question about submits. I have 7 submits and 2 sales. Is this normal?

    This happens to me a lot. I think people click on the order form to see the actual price
    and then back out to possibly shop arround. Or in the case of IM people, I think they see the Clickbank form, back out and then buy it under their own link.

    Clickbank is weird like that, for example, I have:

    34,490 hops

    26 order form impressions

    3 submits

    $0

    In reality, those 3 submits should have brought $97 sales each, but clickbank didn't count them for some reason.

    It's most likely either people who have been flagged as frequent refunders or just people putting in dummy/inaccurate Credit Card info.

    change your product, try something else. There is several reasons why they don't buy anything:
    - low quality traffic (from poor countries)
    - bullshit product
    - ugly buy form (some people says that have impact on sales)
    - bad targeting for product...
    - ... ... ...

    I have good example for you, my traffic is most from india and USA (but mostly india), i have 1200+ hops, 90 order form impressions, 1 submit form, 0 sales. Reason why after submit form click you don't have money can be:
    - somebody fill form with incorrect data
    - he don't have enough money on account to buy this product
    - he trying to cheat system
    - ...

    If you have time and patient try geo-targeting, use few products randomly, or with something like i call "text-targeting"...
    - if this is a ebook site people from india should be redirect to product with best indian book or something like that (absolute bestseller)
    - if this is a ebook site and somebody view some business ebook he should be redirect to product related to business (text-targeting), marketing or something like that.

    Just think everything depends on you and your work. And remember that simple rule... More traffic & More work with targeting products = more sales!;)

    It's not uncommon, depending on the sales page people might be inclined to click through to see the price or what payment platform they support etc.
