I would like to anounce my first sale!
I just made my first sale today. I know that hearing good news is a great source of motivation for many of us so I thought I should share this.
My site has been up for almost 1 month and 2 weeks now. I have been tracking with Google Analytics for 16 days and I am still getting little traffic, 18 visitors in a day is my current maximum, I average 10 a day and my bounce rate is at 57.5%.
I have just submitted my 5fth AMA article today, I have submitted 5 Ezine Articles, created 3 Squidoo pages,Twittered about them as well as 15 of my web pages.
I have had a total of 134 clicks on my affiliate links in the past 30 days, 112 of them where for my main product that hasn't converted yet. Somehow the product that made a sale is a product that I promote on only 1 page as it is quite specific, it has also received only 3 clicks so far. I haven't tried PPC yet.
My main goal now is to increase traffic as well as sales. This first sale was really important for me as doing a lot of work for so long with no results can really take away a lot of the initial motivation you have when you first start out.
My advice is don't give up and find ways to keep motivated. Reading about the success of other members no matter how small has really inspired me and I hope this will inspire you too.
Good luck to all of you,
