    I want to understand how to optimise my traffic and conversions better.

    I have found twitter performs well with cpc actions & that most website visits from twitter do not convert.
    Facebook seems better for cpa & affiliate signups & most website interaction is better.
    Pinterest i'm still testing, so far website visits seem to produce best results of all compared to twitter or fb.
    Organic search traffic performs best of all for me.

    Whats your experience?

    I once heard a guru say, "There is no such thing as bad traffic, there's only bad marketers". Which I found out to believe false and true. Some traffic sources can be plain garbage for some while others may see it as a goldmine. You need to focus on have a high converting funnel and offer. Then the traffic source comes last. Facebook is a great place to start but I'm not too experienced with pinterest traffic. But from the demographics of pinterest, the traffic mainly consist of Women between the ages of 24-48 and an average yearly salary of $60,000. So I'm sure Health & Fitness offers will convert best on that particular traffic source. As far as Facebook, You can literally make a ton of money in any niche depends on how you market and what angels you choose to use as a way to convert visitors into paying customers. I hope this helps.

    Don't think of the traffic source, think of what kind of people use that traffic source. For example, pinterest is mostly women so this works better for weight loss and ecommerce stuff.

    Nice quote, "There is no such thing as bad traffic, there's only bad marketers".

    It really depends on your country. For instance, thailand for example dont believe in SEO and website. They are strong in social marketing like instagram and facebook.

    In the states could be probably twitter/snapchat/fb/ig

    Also you need to know who your audience are and which platform do they actually use.

    Thank you, yes, i agree with the 'bad workman blaming his tools' philosophy ...

    I've found that description of pinterest's traffic to be accurate so far also :)


    Ok, that's cool, thinking in layers. So what I do is try to figure who might be the customer, subscriber/converter and taylor the targeting to them, for that specific thing. their interests, hobbies, lifestyle etc etc..

    so if my offer is a ebook on grooming cats i would link my targeting to funny cat memes, cute cat pics ets etc.

    my block in this sense is figuring the least time consuming way of collecting the most traffic, so yes, i agree, it's important much to think like this

    Thank you, yes, I only target US and SOME european markets, mainly because most of my products are either only available to those countries or the language barrier past english is too time consuming to deal with, my only language is english so ...

    I market on fb, instagram, twitter & pinterest at this time.

    Yes, for me too, i believe the consistent majority of visits to my sites is because seo is King in matching the people that want something with the thing they want. Thats rule #1 in marketing i think.. there has to be a willing buyer to make a seller exist in the 1st place lol


    Big thanks to you all :)

    How you driving traffic from Pinterest? Any tips you can share?

    Source of this data? If those women really makes $60,000 per year, then there's lot of money to be made from Pinterest alone!!

    That means no one use Google search in Thailand? :confused::confused:

    And paid traffic is like gambling. Once you find a winner, you start printing money like casino!!

    They still do google search. But majority of their business flow is within the social media or at least the generation now. Being in and out thailand many times (bangkok) i have talk to quite a number of thai people to be bold enough to make that statement haha. Some of which are collagen business owners marketing on ig and fb.

    The world now is moving quickly into social media now whereby social trust is the key factor and driving force when it comes to product purchasing or any other business.

    Lets just say that in any business.

    Website ppc/sem is like a direct straight to the point sales.

    Social media is kinda like you start off a topic and slowly coax and convert your customers through a series of ads and then sell them. (Coffee talk sales)


    At the end of the day. Both are equally impt is how you use it. Haha hope im not going off topic

    Twitter places most of its ads in the timeline.Users don't want to be interrupted by sponsored tweets when scrolling.
    Fb on the other hand uses a sidebar a little more so their method for placing ads is less intrusive
