This would be a great scenario to achieve:
- 10,000 monthly visitors
- 1 percent conversion
- 100 extra sales/month
The problem with this scenario - in my case - is that this will only bring me an extra $200 a month the way things are currently set up.
This sales page would be a lot more worthy of the time and effort I've put in if I had a higher-priced product to pitch. Accordingly, I've bundled together the eBook series into a complete collection. I will make even more money if I sell it directly from the website, upsell it on the individual pages, spend money to set up a Clickbank or E-junkie cart, etc - and take the retailers out of the picture.
My next bundle product will sell at a much higher, affiliate-friendly price point. Lesson learned! When you're selling a more expensive product, volume and conversions don't matter as much.
I also am figuring out that there is a point at which I have to stop with this project, accept that I've put enough effort into it, and move on to the next one. Do I really want to go this far and put this much work into this project? Will it be worth it?
