Hey Shapers,


On average i get 100-150 visitors a day , in the past few days traffic sore up to 700 (yesterday) , yet i don't see any "boom" in sales - how disappointing Confused

Sales make my clock tick.. aside from the fun part of modeling Smile

Anyone else noticed an increase in traffic which didn't convert?



Cheers

A current major traffic source comes from Boing Boing, Duann has been spreading some magic again Smile

To answer your question, it depends a bit :
For printed and well-photographed models, I see an average conversion rate of 1%. (so every one in hunderd visitors to the model page, actually buys)
But for my untested designs it's more like 0.001%.

Cheers

1:100 Great ratio Virtox !
Well done.

The average sales ratio on an e-commerce websites , if i recall correctly, is around 1:400.


@Jettuh I think based on my sales you could say customers trust my designs without a photo Wink

Anyway yesterday was 1:233 for me, so i think i'm good.
Curious to see how this "season" will be.


Good luck to us all.

Cheers
