    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, if it isn't I apologize sincerely!

    Hello everyone, have a quick question regarding ratios, being ripped off etc.

    Do you think it's common to have ratios such as 1:15 to 1:40 when you are credited with sales, then other days receive over 100 to 200 hits with no sales?

    I promote for a pretty trusted company, but don't want to loose my affiliation, so hope you understand :)

    If anyone have any input as to if this could be possible or definitely shaving/rip off please do let me know.

    Thanks to whomever responds! :)

    its not uncommon to have days when you have seemingly high conversion ratios, then other days quite low ones. It should average out over the weeks months and stay pretty constant over time. Dont worry about analysing individual days, its too smaller time window.

    Yes it is common - i have a site that, no matter how much raffic I push never seems to get sales on wednesdays and thursdays, have another that fri, sat and sun are very low in sales. When you look at the stas you begin to see a trend.

    If it is all of a sudden then from being constant then time to look at all your marketing processes, including ya website to see if anything is not working...if none of those things then yes you could be being shaved. Maybe time to slip the cookie...

    Aw thank you all, will keep at it. This is one of the first companies I promoted for and being I have earned some money from them, didn't want to stop but was just concerned I guess.

    But the information is appreciated, thank you!:)
