Decline of sells

posted on 15th of march, 2010

Recently I realized that on the beginning of any given month many sells happen, and in the second half of the same month sells decline nearly to nill. I wonder if this is your experience too?!

4 sales this month and 4 sales last month but only half way through march so still time for a few more.

As I see, there are some more people who made the same or a similar experience... is there anybody there who can explain this to me?

Yes, sometimes I can see this feature too but usually my sales come during whole month. I am happy their number increases as I upload more photos. I experience less sales during weekends.

The only trend I see in some months is maybe a couple of sales on the very last days of each month, mainly subs. Appart from that, it's very erractic all month.
About totals, I've been running below average since Dec, mostly because of an always decreasing RPD. But today I had a level 4 large dl and suddennly, this month, I'm already above average, both in revenue and RPD.

I've gotten no sales this month. Usually I would have gotten at least one by now.

I have noticed a similar trend in my PF, but guess what happens for some will be the opposite for others as the idea is to get maximum exposure to the site and not just contributors.

I'm getting good sales this last two months and December, January was terrible. The more I upload pics, the better I sell.

For me it's maybe the opposite; always quite erratic in any case, sometimes lots of sales in a row, then nothing for a few days...

I haven't experienced this but I've had very low sales this month. Hope it gets better in the coming days.

Same here. But still I have a few. I hope will increase...

I don't see this in my sales... The 2nd half of a month is pretty much the same as the first half.
