    What do you guys consider as an average conversion rate with your affiliate programs? If I remember rreading correctly isn't it 1-2%? Im asking cause Ive been sending traffic to an affiliate (online shop that sells realted stuff to my niche) and so far this month Ive had 75 clicks but no sales. But if it is 1% I shouldn't see any till I get at least 100 click correct? Also when do you guys say enough is a enough and dump your affiliate program since it odviously isnt converting for you?

    Idk but I get around 6-30% usually, depends on how narrow I target. Don't make conclusions untill you've sent 500+ clicks

    Depends on the niche and product price. I have some very high dollar products that convert at way less than 1% but make me more than $30 products that convert at 1 to 2%.

    Also sales are not linear. If a product converts at 2% you are most likely NOT going to make 2 sales in the first 100 clicks. It may take 5,000 to 10,000 clicks to get a true average. I have had affiliate clicks that have gone into the thousands with no sales. Then make 5 sales in the next 30 clicks.

    its kind of hard to say if you group everything together and look at it I would say less than 1% now if you are working with hot items and you have sites that are ranked and the traffic is coming in that way i would say around 6 to 12%

    If your doing PPC and banner ads i would say you would be around 1 to 2%

    IMO

    Really depends on the marketing method.
    So far, our affiliates are getting 1 out of 15 average conversion.

    Usually at first , You will get less conversions.
    After a while you make better sales, mostly after improving your model.
    It usually depends on affiliate to improve his sites and structure of traffic.
    Good luck.

    it also depends on where you are talking about...on facebook my best so far for direct selling was 8% and i had to get about 400 clicks or so to determine that...so since you have only 75 clicks maybe just let it run for a while until u cross some 200's and then calculate the average...
