Slower Sales? Time to Reflect, Refine, Recharge


Recommended Posts

Is everyone still getting slow sales? When will this end!!

June/July are traditionally slow months for many categories. That said, I’ve heard of plenty of exceptions. I know a seller who had his best month ever in June and July is very good for him so far.

He had also raised his prices in June, so that may be a factor too.

My sales are within about 10% of my norm in earlier months, and I may have my best ever month here in July. (This last week has been darned good… and it’s picking up again.)

Some of it depends on you. Are your gigs competitive? Have you upgraded your skills, your presentation, your value to clients? We can’t just raise prices IF we just OK, but there are a ton of sellers who sell so far below market rates, the “value” buyers (who will pay more for value) skip some of the cheap sellers, even if they are strong.

Hi,

Like you said June/July is summer time and as per my gig which is research and summaries,i’m seriously having less order from last week. It maybe the vacation thing because most of my clients are students and academics one.

So let’s hope will be getting orders soon. Have a great day ahead and happy sales.

Note that July started off really slow for me (like many others). But the end of the month has been pretty strong. July looks like it will finish as a slightly above average month for me in terms of revenue.

My overall orders are slightly down (looking like 250 gigs for the month), but due to my price increases in late June, my revenues are doing better than I expected.

For me the sales are returning… Some days are slow, some are above average so it’s working out to be pretty good. (Again: My price increases have made a positive difference, and my set of repeat buyers continues to grow over time.)

I hope many of you are also seeing a return of the buyers…
