    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 :)

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

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

    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%.

    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 ;)

    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.

    then how will it be if they see the real print in the picture instead of a render....
