Not getting any sale on my Chess website

My website at http://cloverchess.com was created on 1/17/2016. So far there are 41 clicks on ShareaSale links but not one single sale to show for it. For unknown reasons no one ever clicks on an Amazon or House of Staunton link. I am considering a signup with Never Blue. I would get paid for clicks instead of sales. Does anyone have experience with Never Blue? Can you tell me what to expect? ClickBank turned out to be a bad deal. I couldn't find any chess merchants with them.

Hi Kelly,

I'm sorry to hear you have yet to make a sale on your website. I visited and the issue may not be with your affiliate links for any of these networks but with the way the content is presented on your site.

I suggest get a more appropriate header for your site. The one you have now is too plain, and does not represent what your site is about.

While you show some interaction on your front page by way of the comments, these don't really help get people to buy. Consider placing a list of recommended chess sets on the front page with links to Amazon, or ShareASale. Which brands are having a sale right now? Feature them. Let your readers know, and maybe they'll be more inclined to buy.

Instead of having your information on the front of the site, place banner ads for popular chess set brands.

You might want to re-consider placing your contact information on your website. If you want to have a phone number where people can call through, get a toll free number. As for the email, spell it out instead like clover [at] cloverchess [dot] com to avoid getting spammed on that published email address.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

I`m sorry to hear this, but these things happen.
I saw people having 200 clicks and not a single sale. Maybe the sale page isn`t a converting one. Have you considered joining Amazon Associates? They have the best conversion ratings all around.
Also, what are your traffic numbers?

Hi Kelly,

There are two reasons why your website is not earning yet despite the number of clicks you've received: 1. poor website 2. poorly managed campaign

You can have one or both of these problems. I suggest you start re-evaluating your website pages to see which ones you're doing wrong and which ones you're missing out. Here is a goo checklist on how to improve your website: https://blog.kissmetrics.com/101-conver ... r-website/

As on how to check whether you're doing the proper campaigning, I suggest you check your Google analytics for this. Here is a good blog post on what to check for in your GA report: http://www.kaushik.net/avinash/google-a ... s-reports/
