I have been able to get up to 600 Hundred unique visitors (organic) per day and about 40k in sales per month on my old home made website which did have an integrated shopping cart but the problem was that I could not add tracking code from SAS. So I have changed my website.
You have your own best statistics. How is your new site doing with visits and sales compared to the old site?

Well, this is hard to tell because the best moths are Jan. Feb. Mar. April slows down may is slow I had some nice sales lasts week. The traffic is about 300-400 hundred a day.


I will be able to tell you next year when I compare stats from the first 3 moths.


People like my new site better, I have a poll at the bottom of the front page.

Huh??? LOL. I'm thinking maybe I missed some discussion in another thread. If the issue is all those product pages being off site and not just a hosted cart itself (which is what was being said), I can follow that reasoning a bit better. I still doubt a majority of consumers would notice or understand. We're more attuned to those kind of things.

At this point though, I wonder if investing the $2500 in an OPM to help get things better ready for prime time and looking at the forum a few months down the road wouldn't be a better sequencing of marketing spend.

Well, that is what I had in mind but have been told that my website needs total reconstruction - which I would love to do if I had 5K laying around for that purpose.

However, I do not have that, so I am seeking what I can do on my own for a reasonable dime as I have more time than money.


Going back to the cart. Say, my website was converting a decent amount of targeted traffic. Say it would convert as good as some other sites with integrated cart.


What would be a reason for an affiliate not to jump on the band wagon?

Might it be the fact that they do not trust that the sales will convert?

Why would not affiliate link directly into the cart instead of my home page?

Yes, he had a full site review thread where all of this was discussed.

I hope so and am grateful for the compliment. It is a good amount of traffic for that niche site.
