Hi Im glad to get opportunity get direct contact with you guys.

to get to the point: i have been working on a website. its an advertising platform for event orginizers. the purpose is to help users find event equipment and services around where they live.

I have went as far as posting an ad on facebook advertising in only johannessburg city in South africa. for the past 6 days, my paid ad has reached over 9000 people an has received over 450 clicks that lead to my website.

i know this sounds like a high reaction but so far i have received no bookings so i have made no sale. my income will come from each customer i sent event companies.

Tell me if is normal to not get any bookings at first week of execution, is thin mathermathical equation already telling me that i should change something about my website so i start getiing bookings?

please help...

So you take a % from each sale then?

This depends on your offer and your CTA (call to action). What journey are you taking your leads on? Is there a sequence?

hi andy, i have decide to take a fixed amount from each lead i generate.

and yes the aim of the advert is call to action that takes a user directly to my website to make a booking for event equipment, services or catering etc.

my website has no company adverts displayed on it but it is like a form to fill interface where a user will be asked to select what they need and wait for companies to contact them with quotations...

Ok thanks brooklyn.

I also thought it would be better if i also included accurate pricing for each item or service the companies have to offer. something like how websites like booking dot com does... its going to be hard work but i think it would make my website much more useful to my clients because it will save them time of calculating quotes to users.

think its going to work?
