    Hi
    anybody facing the same problem? 193000 hops and not a single sale? Traffic is from twitter. Accounts have followers that are related to the topic. Is this fishy? Even if they would not be targeted, at least one sale should have happened at least by accident - or am I wrong?
    thx

    Could be a lot of reasons:

    1 - Your traffic is bot traffic (crawlers and such)
    2 - The offer you're sending too is having loading problems or its cart isn't configured properly
    3 - Your sales angle is all wrong.

    I could go on. But is something "fishy"? I doubt it.

    It could be the traffic and the landing page. Maybe test out a different product to see if the results are the same. It has been awhile since I actively promoted CB products been when I had a ton of hops but no sales it was usually an issue with the product itself or landing page.

    Hello,

    I use Twitter and clickbank too. I had a lot of hop, and no sales. So, I changed my method. I have less hop, but some sales. And I don't think it's fishy.

    Not fishy but definitely 1 of two things:

    1. Your traffic quality is crap (eg bots, visitors from non-purchasing countries, traffic is not targeted etc...)
    2. The product is crap (it itself is crap or the relevance of the product to the visitors you are sending is crap)

    Be careful the vendor does not blacklist you for sending too much crap traffic.

    Have any of those hops even made it to the order form?
    What about server calls?

    Like others said OP, could be bot traffic, crap traffic, the product is crap, not really influenced or targeted traffic etc.

    My advice would be to make a landing page. You need to presell to them by listing ways of how THEY can benefit from using the product before hitting them with a hard sell.

    It is different products, so crappy products I can exclude. The twitter traffic comes from a niche related to the offer.

    One example in beauty niche
    8243 hops
    1648 hops per order form
    5 order form impression

    other example
    2968 hops
    185 hops per order form
    16 order form impression

    other niche:
    2991 hops
    175 hops per order form
    17 orderform impressions

    all have order form server calls 0

    Any idea?

    I am not English native, so making a proper landing page is difficult.

    No it is not fiverr traffic

    60% US traffic, some UK, rest all over the world

    It's shit traffic.

    Here's what mine look like:

    2957 hops
    11 per order form impression
    260 order form impression
    18 server calls
    20 sales

    2,345 hops
    6 per order form impression
    368 order form impression
    41 server calls
    29 sales

    1,555 hops
    8 per order form impression
    189 order form impression
    22 server calls
    16 sales

    I'd guess that the #1 difference between my traffic and your traffic is that I'm preselling my traffic before I direct them to a landing page and you're directing them straight from twitter to the LP.

    If that's what you're doing, you need to go twitter>presell>LP

    If you can't do an LP send me your worst niche. I'll set up a high converting LP, send you a JV contract and we'll spit the sales.

    Why should you do this?

    1) You admitted you're not native.
    2) I can convert the shit out of traffic.
