How Much Traffic Do You Get To Your Online Course Site?

by | eCourse Growth Strategies, Polls

Learning how to sell courses online can be tricky. Learning how to get traffic to your online educational product can be even trickier. This is because most people selling courses online are an expert in their field, but more often than not, that field isn’t online marketing or Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Therefore it’s not surprising that a teacher with an online course about, say… “how to write a novel”, may find it difficult to get the necessary eyeballs to his or her online eCourse to ensure consistent monthly enrolments.


The traffic numbers vary greatly on a course to course basis. Traffic numbers could range from a few dozen to hundreds of thousands of visitors/month. But let’s take a look at one of our client’s sites and use those numbers to show what’s possible.


This particular client of ours received 33,605 unique visits for the month we profiled below. We’ve taken a screen-capture of their Google Analytics account so you can see how this volume of website traffic looks on a day to day basis. These 33,605 unique visitors average out to about 1084 unique visitors/day which in this case also translated into 188,055 page views for this month. Which is… a lot!


Mind you, this is well above average since this is what we do for our client’s sites at Academy Of Mine. We help train our clients, who are running online courses, to ensure they are getting high and sustainable traffic numbers to their websites on a month to month basis.
