How I got 50% more in gross sales in 3 easy steps

Ever wondered why your sales numbers got stuck? I have, and I researched ways to get it even higher. Now it’s crunched down to only 3 easy steps for you to follow. How would 50% more in sales feel to you?

Ok so lets begin.

Starting point:

You got to have some overview of what you are doing, know your numbers as they say. The numbers you need for this to work is how much daily traffic you got to your salespage, what the conversion rate is and the price of your product or service.

In my example I will keep the numbers easy.

Example:

Traffic: 1000 visitors

Conversion: 1 percent

Price of product: $19

Period: a month or 30 days.

Sum of sales is in this example $5700.

Step 1 in your 50% increase in sales: Traffic

If you bump your traffic by only 15% this would directly go to your bottom line as 15% extra profit if all the other numbers stay the same. Will i be hard for you to get that little traffic extra? What will you have to do? Write an extra blog post, submit more articles, comment more on other blogs? It will not be much, but I know you can do it.

Here are the numbers after a 15% increase in traffic:

Traffic: 1150 visitors

Conversion: 1 percent

Price of product: $19

Period: a month or 30 days.

Sum of sales is in this example $6555. (Whopping 15% extra cash in pocket! 🙂 )

 

Step 2 in your 50% increase in sales: Conversion

So now I dare you to increase your conversion of the salespage by 15%. Is this possible? Instead of 1% conversion you will then get 1,15 percent conversion rate. You can do this by split testing (look it up on tha internet) and changing parts of your salespage, adding new fresh images, give a better guarantee or get (more) testimonials on your page. This will help in the conversion and can easy make this little increase in the conversion rate. Go do it!

Here are the numbers after a 15% increase in conversion:

Traffic: 1150 visitors

Conversion: 1,15 percent

Price of product: $19

Period: a month or 30 days.

Sum of sales is in this example $7538. (Whopping 30%+ extra cash in pocket, than to begin with! 🙂 )

 

Step 3 in your 50% increase in sales: Price

Are you stuck in your pricepoint? People value products and services after price. But a little change in the price wouldnt hurt your sales. At least not just 15% increase. The price in this example will go from $19 to $21.85 and thats not much at all. People spend more than that at Mc Donalds when they opt in for a bigger meal or adds a desert. So this is maybe the easiest part of the challenge. Thats why I kept it as the last one. So lets go over our numbers again.

Here are the numbers after a 15% increase in price:

Traffic: 1150 visitors

Conversion: 1,15 percent

Price of product: $21,85

Period: a month or 30 days.

Sum of sales is in this example $8668. (Whopping 50%+ extra cash in pocket, than to begin with! 🙂 )

 

So how about that. We just did 3 simple steps, and now you got 50% more cash coming in every single month! How will your life change now? Do you get more time, more freedom or more cash to invest in future projects? An extra vacation?

I would love to hear from you and how your stats are after implementing this, feel free to comment about your success in the bottom of this post!

Link Building on Auto-Pilot

As many of you know, starting out is hard, you need to do a lot with your website. Getting content, building links, tweaking, adding new features, market it other ways and answer all questions and comments that come in.

With this little golden nugget I have found, you can put parts of your link building on auto-pilot. It’s called IMAutomator. This is a free service for up to 10 bookmarks per day! If you don’t write more articles than 10 per day overall on your sites this will be enough for you. But if you need to bookmark more every day, they also have a paid version which can do that for you to.

All you have to do is signup for FREE at IMAutomator, then head over to the Bookmark page and fill in the URL, keywords, description, headline and category. Then you get 3 options, make all the links in 1 day, over a period of 15 days or 30 days. This is to make it look more natural to the search engines that your site is bookmarked over time.

Then the site works for you! Easy to do.

I hope you enjoy it and if you want more tips like this subscribe to my RSS feed.

6 Best Blog Sites

Part 1 of 6 best blog sites:

WordPress

Holy grail of blog sites. You got two options, wordpress.com which they host for you or the other one wordpress.org which you download and install on your own hosting and domain. I recommend the last one since you can play a bit more and can’t get kicked out, unless you stop paying for hosting or domain. You have all the options you can think of and a big community to help you,  even professionals if you are willing to pay for it. But it’s a harder learning curve than the others. Check it out!

Twitter

I don’t know if we should call it a blog, but blog is short for web log, so it’s kind of that. You only get 160 characters to play within each “post” so you learn to compress your message into few words and people today have little time so it’s a perfect match. Check it out!

Blogger

The big G (Google) owns this one. It’s easy to start out with, but has some limitations, but if you start out with this one you will see if you have the blogger inside you. Check it out!

Part 2 of 6 best blog sites:

Weebly

This is a cool site, allows you to make 1 site for free. Has a lot of templates readymade for you to use. I used them to be a satellite site for one of my Norwegian blog sites, and it has steadily given me a lot of visitors, it is indexed well by Google. The blog feature is easy to use to a beginner and you can own your own domain, making it look more professional. Check it out!

Tumblr

The tumble log as it is known for is a different type of blog environment with some features that social media have. Good options on importing blog posts from other sources if you are converting to it. Plus for having a great community within and is ability to photo blog if you are more into that. Check it out!

Posterous

Also good importing options here. And you can post much of the same content as the above blog sites. What’s good about it is you just have to send an email to post@posterous.com to start your blog, or post a new one. Check it out!

My best ReTweeted Tweets on Twitter

Just wondered how many “TW” I could legit put in the heading. Seems that 3 is enough. Today I was really sad to see out the window, its like you put your shower on maximum pressure, just the sky is the shower. Its reported flooding and it will rain about 8 cm water in just two days. So I got a good cup of coffe and sat down playing with twitter.

Borrowed from http://mashable.com/2009/08/19/retweet-launches-tomorrow/

I came over  my posts thats been retweeted by others and compiled this list, sorting out links that wouldnt work anymore and other stuff that had a timelimit, giving me the list below. Hope you enjoy the list and can get you in a better mood than this rainy day.

I challenge you to do the same today, go to twitter, click on retweets -> your tweets, retweeted and compile your own list! Place a comment below to your list or all the links you have, share the stuff people like!

So put your best links in the comments below!

Smartpassiveincome.com Gets Critiqued HARD

I just wanted to give you a great link over to SmartPassiveIncome.com (from Pat Flynn) to a video that is going over his site with a hard critique eye!

Pat Flynn is a great blogger who I have followed for a long time, and I think he was in a podcast, on an article and I found him through google the same week, he is everywhere. But now he wanted to be at his own webspace, going over his site and conversion potential. And I loved the video, it gives you some to the point tricks and tips that you could implement yourself in about 30 minutes time on your blog.

So skip over to Pat’s blog to view it all:

Ps. The video is the video that kicked me into renewing this site, and getting back on with the writing as I was in the beginning. Now I have a vision for how it should look, a plan for posting and topics to use, I feel I am all set, and i hope you will enjoy reading the upcoming posts, keep up to date by the RSS feed on the upper right, and I will soon have my email newsletter setup. See ya around!

1and1.com webhosting + wordpress and no auto update / themes / plugins upgrade

Welcome to my blog updating period!

I wanted to share how you can easily get rid of the problem with 1and1.com hosting and wordpress auto update on things like wordpress itself, plugins install, themes install. I have spent the last 3 hours trying to get wordpress to upgrade itself, but always got the page “Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.1.3.zip…” …. and nothing more. Just a blank page after that. After trying ftp methods and other crappy things to put in the wp config file , I finally found Adam Youngs blog. He have experienced the same, and have the solution to it on the link below. Just 2 simple operations and you and wordpress are playing together again!

I want to thank Adam for sharing this, it made my day!
