What happened to my sales ?

posted on 29th of october, 2012

At the end of October I look back at the current month and wonder "where did my sales go"? This has been the lowest sales month for me in nearly 2 years, certainly for 2012. Now I don't sell $100s of images every month, but I have had a steady increase month on month and quarter by quarter. I can see views increasing, but the sales aren't coming through. Anybody have the same experience? Is it possibly subject matter related?

Thanks for all the encouragement. November has stared off as October ended. I guess time will tell when the tide will turn again.

Hey Neal, there does not seem to be any rime or reason for the ups and downs in sales, just supply and demand. October for me was above average with an RPD of $3.45, but June and July were my worst months for some time. Keep on riding the roller coaster and keep putting up your great images.
