30% Conversion Rate From Site To Starter Membership!

Last Update: January 26, 2018

This is for those in the make money online niche promoting WA mainly.

I want to thank @Miren who asked the question about our conversion rate from the unique clicks on the links in your WA review to getting a Starter referral found here.

I've always meant to look at this because I track all my links with this goal on knowing my conversion rates but I've been so wrapped on the other conversion rates that I forgot to look at this one.

I'm glad I did because I couldn't believe my results!

For those that remembered, I talked about adding a make money online guide to my site in Aug/17 and after I added it I meant to see if this page was going to convert better.

Without looking at the conversion rate, I knew my Guide was doing way better than my old WA review because I was instantly seeing way better results so maybe that's why I never bothered calculating the rate.

But now that I compared my results with my old WA review, WOW! Check out these stats:

I use Pretty Links for my website for tracking all my links as well as the tracking features here at WA... both need to be done (I feel) so you can see the number of clicks on those Call To Action buttons from Pretty Links and tracking done here in WA tells me how they became a referral. So the Pretty Links kind of match what I have in WA for this purpose.

Pretty links provides you with total clicks and unique clicks for all the links you create, so that's where the "Unique Clicks" above comes from.


Going from 2.43% to 29.92% is so crazy to me!!

Those numbers are not my total referrals as I have many entries to WA on my site, but my MMO Guide represents around 80% of my total referrals so I'm glad it's working well and I'm glad I made that change.

The old WA review is still online but hardly gives me much referrals these days for obvious reasons but still on bottom of 1st page for that keyword.

Why I made that change was because I felt my old WA review was not comprehensive enough, there was no story, and no explanation on how the business worked.

So that is why I call it a make money online guide vs my new WA review because it's really more than that.

Another thing that is different between the two is that the old WA review was a regular post.

The mmo guide is a page instead (but this could still be made as a post if you want it to show up on your blog roll) and I made it with Elementor (free plugin) so I can make it without any header, footer, and sidebar so that my visitor has nowhere to go once they land on this page from my product review pages or wherever else they came from (I have many ways that people can get to my guide).

It looks more like a landing page and you can construct the page so easily with Elementor as it gives you all these modules (image, text, bullets, etc) you can add to the page and very flexible to adjust anything on the page as well.


Another Use

On top of those results, this mmo guide also acts as subscribers magnet as well (which I've blogged about before here) as I'm offering them a FREE guide.

I have 1,500 subscribers since I implemented this guide in Aug/17 & an email series in Sep/17 so this guide helps get referrals through another avenue.

I only had about 40 subscribers before the guide and that was for a period of almost a whole year.


Worth Writing A Guide?

Yes, it took a few days to construct/write this mmo guide, but look at the results!

WELL WORTH IT! :)


Hope this helps you!

Hi Grace,

Yes, thank you for sending me this link. I saw it in your 'July 18 Results $4373 ... ' post and meant to read it and realized I needed to get some sleep.

Aaahaaa, so your guide is like a landing page. I don't have a landing page. Do you think a guide would be good in my dive site?

I recently became a Thrive member to get the Thrive Architect plugin and I can make landing pages from this.

Haven't been using it much... just STILL working on my nightmare review...lol. I think I have become a perfectionist from this review which I know is a waste of time.

I didn't know about the Elementor plugin and it's free too! Very good to know.

Wow Grace, your stat results are quite interesting and definitely I see the benefit of having a guide ( best part is I can make it long - seems I don't have the challenge of finding words to put in content).

2.43% to 29.92% is HUGE! Congratulations!

Thank you for taking the time to show us this. I am truly inspired by all your accomplishments and teachings here.

Kind Regards,
Monica

You're very welcome Monica! Now that I have way more traffic, the conversion has lowered I'm sure, I haven't calculated as of late, I really should but I still update it like tonight. :)

No, I don't think you need one of these for your dive site, but I will explain more later on. Could you please let me in your last PM to me (see your Outbox), if that review is your "main" promotion for your dive site or just a product review to debunk so you can recommend your #1 product?

I will definitely get to your review when I can. :)

Hi Grace,

Yikes, I'm sorry I didn't see this till now.

Does this mean (see below) you are unable to get access to my last PM?

'Could you please let me in your last PM to me (see your Outbox), if that review is your "main" promotion for your dive site or just a product review to debunk so you can recommend your #1 product?'

I will send you a PM. Hopefully, you will receive this.

Thank you Grace for responding back.

Hello Grace!

Congratulations on your successes...you deserve every one due to your hard work and persevered and patience ( and grace of spirit of course)!

I don’t know how I missed this post - guess I was wrapped in the SUPERAFFILIATE CHALLENGE excitement!

I will try Elementor...sounds promising to create a FREE Training Guide to direct people to WA!

You've done a great job with your make money online guide, your results are a big inspiration. I'm writing my own guide right now after reading your success, I'm not settling for 2.5% conversion when I can get over 10x that with a guide! Although I hope my results will be similar to yours, it might not be... I want to find out.

Have you gotten many visitors from social media to sign up? I'm just wondering because I'm not getting organic traffic yet but I get up to 30 visitors from social media.

littlemama Premium
Thanks for your kind words. These days I still get some from social media yes, but I find that's about 10% or less of my referrals, most come from organic, my traffic has over 80% organic so I don't really concentrate much on social media which is all on autopilot for the most part.

However, social media gave me my first Premium! :)

Congratulations grace, that’s a super conversion rate. :-o This is on my to-do list as well, (a freebie or guide)but I want to switch my email provider. Who are you using to build your list? Thanks for sharing! Nat :)

Thanks very much Nat! I use Aweber, the only thing I don't like is the higher expense as my list grows but that should be a good problem since I have income to cover the growth! ;)

Thanks Grace - I'm with Mailchimp right now, but have heard they don't approve of affiliate links within mail and ban people for it. Aweber is something I was looking at too though, so good to know you have had a good experience. :)
Reply
littlemama Premium
Yeah you can't use affiliate links unless it's a sponsored post relationship, that's why I never used it. You can do it for the first 2000 subscribers I guess but then you'll have to transfer to Aweber afterwards.

Grace,

The progress you have been making is not only well deserved but truly inspirational.

You work very hard. You are extremly organized. The progress that you have made since this time last year proves to me that the WA training program works IF we are willing to follow it. You have...

Thank you for taking the time to share with everyone.

p.s. I hope that your have a great week.

Hi Sondra,

Thank you so much for your kind words. There were many days and months last year where I didn't think I can do this any longer but during that period of time I found the formula to really improve my results. Guide was one thing but also writing tons of product reviews, and publishing daily.... do months of this, you'll find the same results. :)

Yes it's hard work but I'm able to do it all from Mon-Fri. I spend all my weekends with my family except for times like this when I'm just catching up on here on the weekends.

I've also seen this work for too many people to think why this can't work for me, so I want to see this through til I get to Vegas, then maybe add another niche site finally.

That's one more thing I wanted to do at the same time as this site last year, but it just pulled time away from it. One site is enough, laser focus on one works like magic.

You can have this too! :)
Grace

PS: I had a great week and hope you did too!

Glad that you talked about this!
It would be interesting to know what the average conversion rate between unique clicks and new sign-ups is.
It's amazing to see your conversion rate has increased that much since you're offering that guide.
In my case, some months ago my affiliate link has got over 100 clicks and 0 referrals. Maybe it was because my site was not getting traffic and most traffic my link was getting was from social media.
But now I'm wondering why the conversion rate has varied from last month (20%) to this month (26%) if my WA review has not changed much.
Reply
littlemama Premium
The type of traffic is very important. You need more organic traffic to get higher conversion rates. I'm at 80% organic these days. I do find social media traffic is the least converting kind, but good for your site in the beginning when you got nada! :)

Thanks Gordon! I would but then I would get all this skewed traffic from WA, so that’s why I don’t post my links in my profile. If you’re in my niche, you’ll come across it in your research. :)
