    After how many views do you get a click on your site? I have like 1000 views /2 clicks :confused:

    How can I increase this rate? I am not overdoing anything for sure. I have a link in the description and I mention my site at the end of the video.. What else can I do?

    I want to buy a niche related video with 350k views for $150. Do you think it's worth it?

    In vid marketing (the same goes for article marketing) a couple of things are important to get them to your site:

    - identify their needs
    "I want a movie"
    "I want a song"
    "I need a new TV"
    "I want to get rid of my acne"

    - make them curious about the product your promoting

    - leave them with unanswered questions once the vid ends (cliffhanger)

    Don't spend any money on premade vids until you understand how video marketing works.
    Could be a waste of money if you can't identify a good vid and know how monetization of vids works.

    Experiment with a couple of selfmade vids, learn what a good vid is, see what effect good descriptions and titles have.
    Upload different version of a vid with different descriptions and titles (split test) so you understand what works and what not.

    I have about 700 views /12 clicks
    Is that good hop rate?

    I don't have link in the description just watermark

    I also have that kind of rate. I am sure that 10% is possible though. So you should have 700/70

    It depends on the niche but 10% is impossible unless it's some trend/buzz video and even in that case it'll get 10% hop rate for short time

    if you get a 1% conversion rate with only watermarks on the vid then its pretty decent. adding hyperlinks in the description will raise it.

    "1% conversion rate" you mean conversion for product you promote or people who go to your site from video(hops)???

    no I mean to go to your site. from there take another 1% of the traffic and thats about what your sales/conversion ratio aim should be at least.

    example.

    1 vid hit 10k views

    1% of those people (100) visited your site

    1% of them (1) makes you a sale.

    its a base to work with and if your not doing at least that your niche/product/site is garbage.

    if your doing at least that its normal regardless of the bullshit you will read on this site.



    the moral? make more videos.
