    I build a lovely site.

    It's been live since the 24th April (so about 2 weeks now)

    I have had...3485 uniques.

    Already on the second page for main keyword and a few variations of

    decent searches (5-8k)

    had 32 click through's on the buy now...

    1 sale....

    what does that mean... the only thing that I have no control over? the sites crap sales page that turns them all away..

    nothing I can do, just shits me that's all...

    Try running some other offers related to your site, but check the landing page before promoting any old offer.
    Does the landing page make you want to know more, or opt in for the free report? If not then find something else.

    Yeah, I went into it with a mate (he designs I seo's) and while it's a great product, it's pitch is well.... shit....

    and it's going to be hard to change the offer as the site is all about the one product...

    actually...

    I would like to open it up to the forum.

    Can you think of someway I can change the product or what else do you think I can do?

    Just experiment with different offers and designs. Be patient, it takes time.

    The product is essentially make money creating wp themes, right?

    When I first landed on your page it took me a while to realize what the site is about. To me it looks more like a site that sells the themes, and not so much like a make money with this kind of site.

    The site looks great but I will make it more like a clickbank type of site with a big title on the top with some kind of a strong pitch/call to action.

    Site looks good, you might slow down your slider a notch. You may be losing leads/sales that you could otherwise collect from the slider links. Its too fast to finish reading anything. What does your bounce rate look like? I have found that when an offer is good but you are forced to send them to a page that doesn't convert well, you really need to presell it hard, ie. they gotta be 100% ready to buy before they leave your site if they aren't converting on the other side. Like I said your site looks great but I think you need to slow that slider down, thats your pitch and I'd be willing to bet a lot of people are missing it.

    Yeah cool, I'll slow it down.


    I think I agree with the pitch, it's a little light on so I will work at that as well....

    Bounce is pretty high mid 60's... but over 3 min spent on the home page, so I think that after a few of the comments, I am not really telling people what the site is all about really.... takes to much to work out that you are being sold a book..

    Ill work on it... thanks guys!
