    Here are my site statistics:

    Age: couple of months
    Uniques/day: 200 (and growing)
    Average pageviews per unique: 7
    Percentage of new visitors to returning visitors: 80%-20%
    Bounce rate: 1%-2%
    Type of traffic: 80%+ organic traffic
    Number of website pages: 400+ informative unique articles
    Quality of site: content is good quality
    Ebook price: $37 (in line with competitors prices)
    Market: There's definitely a market there and an audience willing to purchase
    Ebook payment process tested?: Yes
    No. of sales: 0 (although the ebook has only gone live in the last 3 days)

    Other info:

    • Each article has a clickable picture of the ebook leading to the pitch page.
    • The site has been carefully constructed in line with all the top recommended internet marketing techniques (I've been researching for over 2 solid years, so I know whats good and I know whats crap)
    Is it normal to be getting 0 sales at this stage in building a website?

    Thats rough..

    I think it matters on some more factors..who the target market is, who it is being marketed toward, what the product is, identifying the need with the sales copy, and call to action...

    I saw that people are returning to the website which is good because i read about a study that it takes an average person around 8 times to decide whether or not they will purchase..
    Keep me updated hope all turns around
