How a Live Help Support System Can Increase Your ROI Dramatically
Author: Eva Browne-Paterson

Many Internet Marketers spend a considerable amount of time and money promoting their businesses online. What percentage of those marketers do you think track their ads? Perhaps 20-40%? What percentage do you think analyze the results of their campaign and actually formulate pro-active steps to take to rectify the identified issues and hence, increase sales? Much less than 20%.

The fact is that many Internet Marketers are wasting their time, efforts and money by promoting without a plan and taking 'pot luck'. Then they wonder why their product isn't selling...

This report will bring your attention to marketing issues that should be recognized and show you how to increase your percentage of sales dramatically by using a live help support system.


It is imperative that you endeavor to formulate an advertising plan when promoting a product. It may take time to work out at first, but once it's done, you can simply add new products to the plan as you join new affiliate programs or release new products.

Now of course affiliates would have a much larger range of products to promote than the general business owner who usually focuses on their own products, with possibly several other good income generators as well. The intention of planning in the first place is to organize your marketing efforts and carry them through to the end -- which is after the sale is made and you work out the percentage of sales for your campaign.

When formulating a marketing plan, the following should be taken into consideration:

  • Ad campaign type: e.g. ezine ad, full page pop-under, banner impressions, text email campaign etc.
  • Budget: Work out how much you can afford, even if you have no money (then it would be $0).
  • Run Dates: Find out the availability of the ad campaign and fill out when it needs to be submitted by and when it is due to run.
  • Results: This is where you would add the click thru rates and sales numbers.
  • ROI: This figure is reached by a simple calculation shown under "Do Your Maths".

Ad Tracking

It is a well recognized fact that if you want to gauge how well an ad campaign performs, you must track your ads. It is essential that you have a quality ad tracking manager that makes the tracking process quick and simple with statistics that are easy to understand and translate.

I highly recommend Add2it Go-To as a robust system that is easy to install. You can see the full list of features and download a free trial from here:

Plug the statistics from your ad campaign taken from your ad tracking service into your plan after the campaign has been given sufficient time to run.

Do Your Maths

Do your mathematics for each advertising campaign. Calculate the cost-per-visitor, cost-per-sale and return-on-investment ratios.

For example: If a website charges you $20 per thousand impressions ($20/CPM), and you get a 2.0%
click-through (20 visitors), your cost-per-visitor is $1.00 ($20 / 20 visitors).

And if 1 in every 10 visitors buys your product, your cost-per-sale is $10.00 ($20 / 2 sales).

So if each sale of your product produces a gross profit of $15, then your net profit per-sale will be $5.00 ($15 gross profit - $10 cost-per-sale).

Your return-on-investment (ROI), before non-marketing expenses, is 50.0% ($10.00 total net profits / $20 investment). This campaign is profitable!

Try advertising on different sites to find the winning combination(s) that can yield the highest ROI. Comparing Deal A which yields an ROI of 20% to Deal B that yields 60%, your advertising dollars work three times harder (and profitable) with Deal B!

Correlations & Analysis

It is important that you make the most of the statistics accessible through your tracking service and figure out why you received that particular percentage of sales. You should always aim to increase that percentage as it just makes good business sense. Try to look at your site from a customer's point of view and make the required adjustments.


There is a need to be able to identify the issues that are making people leave your web site before purchasing the product. But how do we do that? Wouldn't it be great to be able to stand at the doorway to your web site and ask each person this question as they left your site? "Excuse me. Would you mind telling me why you didn't buy my product?"

Now some people actually do that on their web sites by utilizing an exit popup window with questions and a feedback form. What an excellent idea. I wonder what percentage of people fill them out? Possibly 30-50% I would imagine? It would depend how serious the person was about considering your product as to whether they would provide feedback.

Some of the issues that we could expect to be included in feedback from prospective customers would be:

  • Too expensive...
  • Couldn't find the product I was looking for...
  • Doesn't have all the features I thought it would...
  • Doesn't have a particular feature that I was after...
  • Not sure if I should buy it or not... I can't decide...
  • Not sure if it does everything that I want it to do...
  • Does it really do all that it says it will? I want to speak to someone who's used it...
  • The web site was too bright with tiny text that hurt my eyes!
  • The purchase link didn't work... It displayed an error page.
  • I don't have a PayPal account. Can I use an alternative payment method?

Once you know more about what your prospective customers are thinking, you are in a better position to make the necessary adjustments to your web site to rectify the issues.


The situation for the prospective customer as they visit your web site could be something like this:

They are looking over your web site, possibly thinking some of the comments above and trying to find answers... They will look around your site for the answers and possibly send you an email or visit your FAQ page if you have one. But if they don't find the answer they need -- you know what they will do don't you? Yes, they will just click away in an instant... Probably unsatisfied too.

Are your prospective customers getting the answers they need from your web site, right then and there instantly when they are open and susceptible to purchasing your product? If you said "No", then you should seriously consider adding the power of a Live Support System to your web site.

You can download a fully functioning free trial here:

Consider what happens when you're shopping in a regular offline store and you're looking for something that you can't quite seem to find. What do you do? You find a sales assistant and say, "Excuse me. I'm looking for a pink and green spotted blouse but I can't find one anywhere! You only seem to have pink and white spotted blouses... Do you know where I can find one please?"

Why not give your online customers the very same courtesy and assistance in real-time? Did you know that you can, even if you don't have your own web site? Sometimes it is just a matter of directing the customer to the right place so they can make their purchase.

So what kind of results can you expect as a business owner or webmaster when you install a live support system on your web sites? Or if you are an affiliate without your own web site and you use InstaHe!p?

Simply put, you can expect the results to be dramatic. How do you know? By working out the new percentage of sales in your ad campaigns of course.

If you are online a good deal of the time, and your status is set to online, you will be notified by an audible alarm when someone is visiting any of your web sites and you can watch as they browse from page to page on your site. You can pro-actively engage them in conversation and answer any questions that they might have prior to purchasing -- and usually they do. That is the crux of the matter. Solving those unanswered questions that made people leave your site before.
