    Conversion Rates

    I haven't seen anyone discuss this in a long time so figured I would bring it up. When you guys run banner advertisements for your web hosting services on lets say semi-targeted websites. Think, webdesign forums, webmaster sites, etc..

    What has been your experience when it comes to conversions rates? Visitors clicking through by your ads to actually completing a sale.

    On a banner advert, you can generally expect 0.1% click through rate, in our experience. The users then convert statistically normally as any other visitor coming to the site.

    Clicking the advert and browsing your site depends on the site where your advert was placed and how interactive and eye-catching your ad is.

    From your website to finishing payment depends on you. From my experience, once I started to come online on the live chat service, I was able to make 100% more sales than when I was absent.

    Let's have it this way, most conversion costs around $90 - $120 which is normal. So if you are looking to get 100 clients, ready to spend some $9K - $12K for online PPC or banner ads.

    Good luck with it
