Assuming that your concern is about Adwords traffic, here are few check lists that would help to increase purchase.

1. Keyword - Bid on only relevant keywords. Go for exact & phrase keyword match type. If you intend to use broad or modified broad - add negative keywords

3. Text Ads & Landing pages - Write compelling text ads, highlight benefits, features, promotions,..Your landing page is the key element in converting a click to conversion. Here is a resource about landing page best practice -

4. Funnel - Identify your customers exit points in the conversion process by referring the search funnel report (or GA - Funnel Visualization). Here is a resource regarding search funnel -
