    Not happy with the results. So many order form impressions on some with only 1 order. Is that normal?

    Should I abandon the ones without any order form impressions?

    Trying to figure out my plan of attack.

    Yes that's perfectly normal if you're new. The main statistic I look at for beginners are the total earnings per hop. That number is a direct reflection of your overall performance and the main thing you should pay attention to.

    You're a $.04 a hop which IS low but I was around the same range when I started. I've seen a lot of guys start off at $.01 a hop so you're not actually doing bad at all. Once you get good and learn how to optimize things you can easily get that number up to $.25 / hop.

    For noobs, you shouldn't expect anymore than 1 sale per every 150-300 hops.

    I like to drive a minimum of 1000 hops to a sales page before I decide whether to scrap a project. Cause you can drive 500 hops and not get a sale then your last 500 hops you wind up getting like 8 sales. Clickbank is very random like that.

    Right now, that 4% conversion isn't bad. One of my oldest, most profitable and long standing video accounts converts steadily around 4% (which is shit but it drives over 100 hops a day). I would definitely try to throw more traffic at that product. Everything else it's really hard to say. There were niches where I threw a couple thousand hops and didn't get 1 sale. I said "fuck this shit" then came back to the same product months later with a new pitch / new way of preselling, and all a sudden was getting 28% conversions.

    The way it went with me, I slowly worked my way up to 100 hops a day. Which took me months using youtube. And it will feel impossible but the increases in traffic come in exponential bursts when you least expect it. They don't come linear they just explode 1 day and you're like "holy fuck... I made it". Then you hit a point where you realize conversions are everything and you stop focusing so much on traffic. Like my first big earner was driving tons of hops but only converting around 4% like yours. Then my 3rd earner was driving 1/4 as much traffic as my 1st earner but converting 5-6 times as good. Looking at those numbers threw off a lightbulb in my head. I was driving 1/4 the amount of traffic (like 25-30 hops / day) but making more money then my first video driving 100 hops / day.

    Guys on here will tell you "good conversions are 1 sale every 100 hops".

    Don't listen to that bs. Good conversions are 2-3 sales per 100 hops. And it's not hard to do it just takes time.

    Also, where is your traffic coming from right now? You got the hops coming in you just gotta tap in to another 1-2 niches and scale.

    You must target keywords.

    You are not too specific to your niche and a lot less traffic.

    You need backlinks very much, and some traffic cpm, ppv / ppc

    Yeah he has helped me learn a lot about many different things already! lol he is good people :)
    Right now a small part of my traffic is from youtube videos, another is a couple small niche websites for a few of the products.

    The majority of the traffic is coming from bing ads though.

    Funny thing one site I made was for adwords only. I was going to set up and adwords campagin then funnel them through my site first to presell them. I wasn't getting many hits on the keywords I had over there because the CPC was crazy high and I had my max CPC way low, but I randomly started to get traffic for some related searches I wasn't expecting lol.

    Right now with bing i'm just throwing mountains of keywords at it and seeing what sticks, removing what doesn't. Basically split testing. I mean when I can get $300 of bing coupons for $40...I would HOPE I can make at least $40 after spending $300.

    Continuing making niche sites though. I'm focusing on getting super solid content 1k word articles. I will have around 20 articles on the sites before I even think about doing any PBN or GSA on them. And i'm using aged domains.

    I was just confused on some of the products getting zero order form impressions, while others seem to have huge impression rates. Thinking about scrapping the ones that don't have impressions and keeping the ones that do. I'm starting to notice a pattern on the products that seem to be getting those impressions. They were the complete opposite style of page that I thought would convert.

    Careful with using Bing Ads, my experience is that you can't use coupons forever, and you should definitely refrain from using your payment method on multiple accounts at once. My big hint is, When Bing Ads won't accept a coupon on your primary account, firstly remove the payment method from that account, and THEN start a new account.

    Learn from my mistakes, now I have three ($100) Bing Ads coupons and can't even use them. (silent crying)
