Highest Conversion Rates You've Seen Online?
Posted 15 September 2010 - 02:43 PM
Typically conversion rates are in the low single digits for most sites, but i bet there are outliers....like when everything is in place:
- a true need people have to fill
- very few or no good (or none at all) competitors - including offline
An analogy might be...whenever Im up at night and get hungry, but didnt buy food during the day.....I drive to the nearest gas station and buy food there. Being truly hungry is a need I have to fill, and there really isnt any other gas station close to where I live (or well there is but the cost of driving there would be higher and they dont have better food)....I wouldnt be surprised if that gas station has a close to 100% conversion rate with everyone who lives in my area, gets hungry at night and has no food around.
Has anyone ever seen a monetization model like this (or anything close to it) online? And how high were the conversion rates with it? Deep into the double digits?
Anything else that's noteworthy in terms of high conversion rates would be extremely interesting, too, of course!

You should find more recent information by going through the Nielsen.com blog. I found numbers for 2009 by retail sector but the information is in chart form and too long to publish here. Ebay and Amazon, not surprisingly, are high up on a few of these charts.

I came across a piece ofi nformation that basically read "april showers bring moms flowers" or something along those lines. Now I see that the data you quoted were for May (even though 2008 not 2009)...I was gonna mention i was surprised at flowers getting such high conversion rates...but that might have to do with the month of april/may, I guess?
not really sure how it affects the conversion rate (rather than just overall traffic), but you get the idea..
