Affiliate Marketing Tips – Conversion Rate Vs Conversion Ratio

Marketers love to throw around numbers and stats, as if the world rose and set around them. Ever go to the Clickbank marketplace to see some of the top selling products and the insane statistics that they’re claiming as far as conversion? It’s enough to make you sick. Well, I’m going to cut through all the garbage as far as these stats and also clear up some confusion regarding conversion rate versus conversion ratio. It is my hope that when you are finished reading this article, you’ll be able to take all of this with a grain of salt and also understand what these numbers really mean.

They’ll tell you that their conversion rate is 6% but what they don’t tell you is that this is based only on Adwords advertising, or on list promotion. If they were to give you the stats for all their promotions, they would probably turn out to be lower than the stats they are showing. The reason for that is because they always put their best foot forward. So it is important to be aware of this when you decide on a product to promote as an affiliate.

Naturally, marketers are going to want to put their best foot forward when giving you their conversion stats. As long as you understand this, you’ll be better able to make an informed decision when deciding w
