    Hey all.

    So a few of you may have known that I wasn't doing too well with clickbank on my niche site recently. This week I'm so happy to say that I made a change to my website and tripled my sales!

    I was making about 1 sale every week. This week I made 3 (and we're only halfway through the week - I expect if I scale my traffic, I'll get more). And I only changed one thing. So fellow IM'ers here's my advice!

    IT'S ALL ABOUT THE THEME!!!

    So this may not be news to you experienced IM'ers, and I apologise if you've already heard this.

    My theme was very boring. In fact it was incredibly boring! I was using the cutline theme which you can see here:

    http://cutline.tubetorial.com


    When I started my niche site, I was told that it was a very responsive theme. So naturally I went with it. Bad idea!


    Instead I changed my theme to the thesis theme and used the nexis skin. You can find the downloads for free here:

    *Please note that I didn't upload this. Credit goes to this thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ools/539799-get-thesis-theme-1-8-package.html

    Now if you are a noob to uploading thesis theme and skins with wordpress (I definitely was), I would suggest a quick look through this playlist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvFUUxiuUEY&list=PLEE980ABEB5F44F97 - It will tell you everything you know. Just remember I said a quick look through, because if you watch it all you will lose your day. And time really does = money!

    That's pretty much all I did. I know there may be a few better themes out there, so I would love to hear your suggestions. What themes have you all had luck with?

    Cheers! :)

    Wow, not really a good one for selling as an affiliate, instead looks good for selling own service and products. I would try this to see a service and try, since it looks good and simple for some aspect.

    Edit: Do you have a download link for cutline theme?

    Dude, that theme was not boring, was one of those themes that forces you to close your internet browser.

    A tip for newbies: There are many gigs on fiverr offering custom wordpress themes. Get one made for your niche. It greatly appreciates your conversion rate.

    A theme is one thing, the actual content is another thing.

    Usually I never have to change my theme because I wouldn't pick a theme like that in the first place (it looked unprofessional). At any rate, my themes are still fairly boring. Its the CONTENT I upload, how I organize everything
    that gets the conversions. So if you just changed the theme and got more conversions, then try changing the actual content. That will skyrocket conversions.
