If you’ve been following my progress as I lurch towards $50K in my new store, you might remember that in June, I had my best month of sales. We sold more than $2K in June, with basically one product, a $37 box of socks for people who love wiener dogs.
After what felt like a big win, I hunkered down and did some serious work in July.
I’m in the process of manufacturing several new styles, and developing an audience as I prepare to launch them.
All July I kept my head down, and because I was so focused on my new project, I missed one really important thing.
And because of that my conversion rate dropped from 2% to .64%.
I bet you’ve done this too.
Watch this episode to see what marketing work I did, and how I fooled myself into thinking I was making progress.
You’ll see how I could have avoided this disaster simply by tracking a few key metrics.
The short version is that I got so busy doing “all the things”, I took my eye off the ball, and missed the important things. The things that actually get me sales.
The work I did was all good, but I didn’t do any sales focused work.
And because I wasn’t tracking my metrics, by the time I realized what was happening, the month was almost over.
What metrics should I be tracking?
- Returning Visitors
- Average Order Value
- Conversion Rate
Are you tracking these key metrics? If not, you need to start today.
