    Hello all,
    I am new to this whole marketing game and I have created a quick website on a "niche".
    I posted the link to my website on a few facebook groups here and there and on a few news pages/forums and after 2 days and seeing 200 visitors and over 80 clicks I thought that maybe what I picked was not a very wise choice as a first niche website so I kind of let it go and decided to work on another project.
    This morning I signed on on my website just to see if I could maybe turn it around some way and revive it and to my surprised i got what I think is my first sale??
    I don't see the earnings yet but it is in the ordered stage, now could someone please confirm that it is in fact a sale?
    This was a huge boost as I am now motivated more than ever to scale things up and focus extremely hard on my projects!!

    Also, Could you guys let me know about YOUR first sale? After how many visitors and or clicks on links did you manage to get the first sale?
    Are my numbers average/ good or would you say that after 200 unique visitors and over 80 clicks I should have made more sales?
    Thanks!

    Apologies if I posted this in the wrong section of the forum, like I said, I am new and still learning. I did not intend to spam any section.

    Yes its a sale. Cgz. I had my first sale days ago. I got 6 sales so far. None of them related to what i'm promoting. I had just over 300 visits daily to my site. 110 ish click so far and 6 sales. Conversion says 6.xx something. Idk whats a good ratio of visits - clicks - sale?
    It depends on niche i guess.

    Congrats! May it be the first of many.
    I've never done affiliate marketing, but I do have an e commerce just for fun, I basically just posted a lot of different images in a lot of big "funny" websites (9gag, funnyjunk, reddit, etc)
    Eventually I got my first couple sales, a year later with barely any marketing I've had over 500 and still going.

    It also depends on how you drive traffic to amazon, for example if you just use click baiting links like click here for more information or something like that with intent for surfer just to click amazon link for information than CR will be much lower, if you use a clear links like buy it now - it will be higher for sure.

    There are many aspects that affect ratio and these are just few, I would say that testing is the key to find a way that brings most income.
