    hey guys i created this blog which im trying to make some affiliate sales from. well i needed to know from some of the pros here if this site can make me money if i got some good traffic to it.

    i wanna try make like 1 sale a day or something. if someone could give me some numbers like in how many visitors i need to reach that 1 sale a day goal estimate, then it would be great.

    also i wanted to ask whether it is a good idea to put adsense on this type of site where im trying to get sales.

    so here is my site:
    Code:
    w3.weightlosschuck.c0m

    you're looking at around 700-2000 unique hits(non brought)to get any sort of sales a day. I personally think that any website can be quickly popular if you make the content keyword rich and promote on CL/youtube/ezine etc.

    Thats an interesting number you have there 700-2000. You might as well say 1 to 20000.

    There is no way of telling until you start making sales. Every website is unique. Considering that your one looks OK, it would depend on the quality of traffic.

    Sarcasm really doesn't come out well on forums unless it's an extreme. I honestly agree with you, it's about the quality of traffic/content, hence the random number i gave.

    Looks good to me, and I don' think anyone anyone is in the position to guess your conversion ratios though. Its too dependent on traffic quality, location, source etc to make any assumptions (so I agree with MightyBH on that one).
    700 - 2000UV's / sale? I've promoted similar offers in PPC and had CR's as high as 20%, so it really depends.

    BTW what WP theme are you using?

    Cheers

    He is using the Flexsqueeze theme. Looks pretty slick for quick site building...


    Code:

    Of course it can make some money.

    I agree with what Cupid / MightyBH say.

    Good luck, post here to let us know how it goes for you.

    im using the flexibility theme for those guys who asked. I found it here a while ago.

    @yellowbus: sure, i've even got ideas to create my own product once i learn to scale this and start making $100-$200 a day.

    Nice site... but I think that niche is rather... saturated... chances of making green is slim but it is possible.

    Why not make it a weight-loss library and charge a month or weekly fee for access to it?

    How much traffic all depends on your conversions. Because the market is so saturated you will find them lower than some niches. If you target buying keywords you will do better instead of brood terms. An idea is two give away a "reveiw report" of the different weight loss programs, and somewhere around here I saw a wp autoresponder. Build a list as it seems to work better in this market.

    dont forget to use cpa offers aswell. free trials and so on. and dont believe anything about being saturated. yeh there are thousands prmoting that niche but u can still make sales from it

    thnx guys, yeh i've got myself a report and was tryin to get a popup thing on wordpress using this plugin. But i just cant get the god dam thing to align and i dont have dreamweaver which would make it a shit load easier to align.

    Also i cant seem to get into any cpa networks. do you reckon i can get into one with this blog? i tried coepec with another shit site lol i was a noob then. i might retry i dont mind the call even though im 16.
