My Goals and Progress
I thought I would start a thread over here away from the welcome section. Rather than intruding on people coming to the forum for the first time.
I would like to share the personal goal that I have set myself.
I figure it has a better chance of becoming a reality if I do.
I would like to make, in 30 days, in clear profit, the cost of the Affilorama pacakge by promoting affilate procucts and receiving commissions, starting from scratch (ie. no list) and not including commissions from "how to make money", "internet marketing " type products.
I joined less than 24 hours ago and all the information is great. This forum included. I chose an affiliate program and have my first site up live and reached my google adword daily budget (a modest amount).
I wanted to see if it was profitable before sending alot of traffic.
The way it is structured I dont think there would be any sales for quite a few days, but thats ok.
Google adword stats
Search Total 1971 impressions 47 clicks 2.38% clickthrough
Content Total 39177 impressions 56 clicks 0.14% clickthrough
20 subscribers so 20/103 = 19.4% conversion
At the current cost I need 4 sales every 100 subscribers to break even. I think 1 sale to break even would be better. Need to get the cost down and/or conversion up.
Should add conversion tracking to see if subscribers coming from content or search ads.
Any comments/suggestions welcome.
