Our new site went live on Wednesday and I want to thank everyone who has helped us with set up. We are Haley and Claire and in a previous life we worked for BT managing Broadband Contracts for large organisations. The hours were long and as we both had young children, about a year ago we took redundancy and started to look at online opportunities.
Our children were both mad on scooters, so we decided to build an affiliate site about kids scooters and stunt scooters. This became quite successful so we decided to take it one step further and sell the products ourselves. We have created our site and we are just finalising the agreements with the manufacturers, so not all products are ‘live’ and in stock but should be over the next couple of weeks.
We were making daily affiliate commissions with our affiliate site, but since going live on Wednesday we haven’t made a sale, although we have had 42 people in the checkout according to bluepark stats – So any advice or obvious errors we are making would be greatly appreciated, along with any other tips or advice on the site in general.
Our site is Stunt Scooters and here is the link..http://www.stuntscooters.co.uk/
Thanks in Advance.
Ps. We only have paypal set up to take payments at the moment. In your experience does this have an affect on checkout conversions?
