How much traffic is needed to achieve a profit of $20 per day?
How many visitors does it take?

 9:53 pm on Mar 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have a new site that is only getting about 10 unique visitors per day.

It makes a profit of about $1.50 per day after expenses.

I don't know if that is a good average or not.

At this rate it would take approximately 133 unique visitors per day to achieve $20 per day profit.

Is your experience similar? I was just wondering if my results are typical. I suppose a lot depends on the product you promote.

Just wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences.

15 cents revenue per visitor isn't bad I would think. Some others may have more experience with this.

Your industry, and how you go about promoting things has a really big impact on this number though.

What are others thoughts? What do call a good revenue per visitor figure? I have one friend that does almost $1 per visitor, and it ain't no high ticket industry either :]

All the Best,

That's pretty good. I have sites that range anywhere from $0.01 per visitor to $0.50 per visitor. If you look at the posts from some of the really high volume sites, many are even less than a penny per visitor.

At $0.15 per visitor, you could easily justify using Google AdWords to build traffic to your site. I would recommend sticking with $0.05 bids and very specific keywords to start.

Dear all,
I'm running my affiliate business about 1 year. But I can't catch the method.
I think that virtual product is easy to sale such as membership and ebook,etc.

I'm major use Adword to promote the product.

Am I need create one more website to promote the product?

Do you any great affiliate website example for my reference?

Best Regard

Kitty, no one is going to give you websites for reference.

I suggest you go and search for some money terms, and look at affiliate sites on those. They are pretty easy to spot.

Also are you getting someone to write your pages for you? I can't understand your English here (I know it isn't your main language), and if I went to website written in poor language, I would leave.

No offence to you, those are just my thoughts.

All the Best,

Webequalizer, I think I'll keep the exact nature of the site private. It is just AM. Just trying to get a feel for what revenue per visitor figures others were seeing.

Hey gabby,
How do you make so much with so little visitors? I have about 7 times more visitors, but no revenue at all. Can you tell me what your site is about, and what program pays so high (adsense?)
Don't worry, i'm not gonna steal your idea - too lazy for now to make a new site.

That would give someone great confidence in sharing an idea with you.

I expect a general answer, something like "my site is about movies" - which won't allow me to steal the idea. Anyways i'm more interested in what ppc he used. 1.5 $ per day for 10 visitors looks a lot to me.


 11:01 pm on Apr 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

$0.15 per visitor really isn't a lot. My main site sees about $0.10 per visitor and my best site gets about $0.50 per visitor. Just about everyone using AdWords is getting at least $0.10 per visitor, otherwise they couldn't afford to advertise.

For me, this is through affiliate programs. There's no way I could earn this much through AdSense/PPC. Even if I could get 10% CTR, I would need site topics whose clicks average $1.50 per click to earn $0.15 per visitor.

And before anyone asks, no I won't tell what topics or formats my sites are (publicly or privately). I only share very general information and some methods.

That does sound like alot. Perhaps the site content generates quite a bit per adsense click. You must remember though, the more traffic you get (this site is only getting 10 visitors) the harder it is to maintain a certain profit margin per visitor.

I'm getting about 90 - 100 unique visitors per day and am not making anything through AM. I'm still trying to figure my way through all of it.

Damn, I'd kill for $0.15 per visitor. =) Even a tenth of that would be a nice improvement. I work with untargeted volume traffic. It's difficult to get to convert, but sheer numbers start working in your favor after awhile. I never really understood the low-volume, highly-targeted game, but I'm trying to break into that now.
