Why do I have Hops but no sales?

This means that you've driven visitors to a product, but none of them have converted into a buying customer yet. Every product converts at a different rate, so there's no way to tell how many Hops it should take to make a sale.

However, if you're actively promoting a product (especially if you are spending money to promote a product), you should decide how many Hops you're willing to send to a product before you try a different strategy or product. Even if the product has converted for other people in the past, it may not convert for you.

Deciding when to stick with what you're doing and when to change course is an important part of testing and learning as an affiliate marketer.

ClickBank's Analytics tools can help you gather data on conversion rates, which may help you judge the effectiveness of your campaigns.

    Greselda,

    Yes, you choose where you put banners or other product promotions. The Marketplace lets you see what vendors are out there to be promoted, but you decide where to promote their products. You can promote products in any manner you choose - paid ads, social media, your own site, emails, whatever you choose.

    Daniel,

    Take a look at the Using HopLinks page and make sure that you're promoting products using correctly formatted HopLinks.

    Hello,

    I'm currently running ads for products on ClickBank. I clearly see clicks from my ads and CTR over 5% but I do not see any Hop counts, let alone sales on my Clickbank dashboard.

    Any ideas why I may be receiving clicks on my ads, but they are not reflected as hops in Clickbank's dashboard? I've tested my hoplinks and my affiliate information shows correctly during my testing. And my test actually do show up in my Clickbank dashboard. The hoplink format im using is http://www.test.com/?hop=affiliatenamehere

    Any help will be welcomed.

    Thanks,

    Ignacio

    Ignacio,

    If you're running ads inside ClickBank itself, bear in mind that your audience will be mostly other affiliates and vendors. If your product isn't targeted at such customers, you may not see a lot of success in selling to them.

    Take a look at the Using HopLinks article for more information about making sure there aren't issues with your HopLinks. If you can't determine any issues, you can also file a support ticket for more assistance.
