Ecommerce Without Adwords

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 3925497 posted 9:54 am on Jun 3, 2009 (gmt 0)


I'm running a couple of ecommerce sites, one for about a year, another for a few months. I am currently relying on organic traffic and Google Base for visitors.

I haven't started using Adwords or other paid traffic as I am a cheapskate, and don't think I could get a good ROI with my profit margins.

I was wondering how many/any other people run purely organic ecommerce sites. Am I crazy?

Thanks again for all your input, ssgumby reminded me of the use of negative keywords, I will have to brush up on that before I try it out.

I guess I'll just have to jump in at some point, I will bear in mind some of the things that came up here. I'm really tight with money so will hopefully find a way for maximum ROI.

My visitor number are pretty low so it would be a good way to test if my checkout procedure is any good.

What I'm going to check before I start are:-

Checkout looks good
Landing Pages
Find cheap longtail keywords
Negative keywords

Any other suggestions, let me know.

Is the conversion rate generally higher for paid ads? I guess the people who click on them must have a specific interest in buying.

My current conversion rate is only a few percent, but maybe the content bringing people in isn't optimal for generating sales.

I feel all warm inside being featured on the homepage!
