    Hello house,

    I have this "how to video" on Youtube with over 4,000 views
    but only 60 of the viewers clicked on my affiliate link in the description.

    3 out of the 60 traffic bought goods on the affiliate sale page ( i know this a good ratio, so i am not complaining about this. In fact these are my first sales in affiliate marketing, i am so happy )


    But i am thinking with over 4,000 views ( by the way it is a 3 minute video with average view
    duration of 1min 15 seconds. also 91% of its views came from suggested videos ) at least traffic
    to the affilate site should be between 300 to 500.

    Another thing is i only tell them in the video to visit the link in the description in the last slide, that is at the end of the video. Could this be the reason? Or what do you think i am doing wrong?

    Thanks

    1.5% click conversion is a pretty common click conversion for an unoptimized page. Anytime I try to do a break-even analysis, I start my math out with a 1.5% click conversion. Your sales conversion is great, granted we don't have a large traffic sample to work with.

    As far as fixing it, due to having little to no control over the page layout, you can try to be more aggressive with the CTAs, try to increase the sense of urgency or scarcity in your message.

    Perhaps offer a bonus for purchasing through you (although you'll need a better funnel to track the conversions and deliver the bonus). You can put scarcity on the bonus, such as a time limit, or quantity of bonus available. You could offer a bonus bundle where the first X people get things 1, 2 and 3. After those people, the next y only get things 1 and 2. Etc.

    1 conversion for 150 - 300? Meaning i am extremely lucky at 3 conversion at 60 visits.

    You said you are having a lot of click to your affiliate link from videos? This is my challenge.

    Because i only got 60 traffics from 4,000 views.

    Please where are you putting your affiliate links?

    Is it only in the attonation or description or both.

    In my case i only put it in the beginning of description and tell the viewers to visit
    the link when the video end.

    A click through rate of 1.5% is actually really good, you can try to see how you can increase your views via paid promotion if the money your earning is good enough invest a little. After you gain a few thousand more views you should start receiving more naturally. Also know how YouTube works, the algorithm right now focuses on longer videos spread out the video a little might help

    Your conversion rate - visits to sales is really good... What network do you use for your affiliate offer?

    Adding a little message at the end of the video asking to click the link is not enough IMO (although your CTR is also good) - you can build the context of your video around the fact that they'll get everything they're looking for when and only if they click on the link - that should increase the CTR .
