    Hi BHW, I have a website, and I have been selling a product since the beginning of august (actually started in April on another site, but decided to make my own), and I am trying to improve my conversion rate. So far, I have made less than 12 sales from around August to now, and it is probably because of the traffic. I started this thread because I am looking for some insightful tips to improve it? Any ebooks, wsos, videos, tips, etc that could help me out.

    My work so far:

    -Made a mailing list (gained about 10 subscribers)
    - Scraped over 400 emails using various sites.
    - Posted on CL, but apparently was ghosted.
    - Emailed my ass off with product (out of about 600 emails, I got about a 10% reply back, and from that probably, like 3-6 sales.).
    -Made a Fb page, and gained only 100 friends.


    So that's pretty much my story. I'm trying to see what I can do to get the site really good with traffic? So far, I was thinking about these things:

    - Add new and more products
    - Contact my mailing list with exclusive offers
    - Make a youtube account and add videos weekly
    - Use adwords to promote

    But I feel like there is more I can do. I tried fb advertising, but it was hardly converting. I also purchased some random traffic from someone, but the type of traffic I need for my niche is highly targeted (Like really targeted, not just for people looking to know how to make money online), so I started trying SEO. I found about 8 main keywords (5 of which that are very competitive and 3 which are easy to rank). I have been writing articles and using some software I got called easy seo to help me out.

    I am open to any ideas you guys might have, I just want to know of any strategies or ways I need to start marketing effective to gain the right traffic.

    I can tell you your all over the place. Stick with one thing and master it before moving on.

    Well, I just want to master and market 1 site, not 100 sites.

    Sometimes it can take time to make conversions. The more people see you and get used to you they feel more comfortable with you and they will purchase. That is my experience. I started out slow and now I am making a lot of conversions with about the same traffic.

    Do you have any tips as for getting quality traffic? I heard about youtube toolbox, is that available as a download here? And what about adwords?
