Anyone else notice this? Is a new search engine being implemented? The “relevance” option is kicking up totally different files.
There can be unexpected dips in sales. It could be increased competition. It could be your regular buyers are in between projects right now. It could be the search patterns are a little different this week. There are certainly plenty of possibilities out there.
Recently I had two of my slowest weeks in about 4 months, but they were sandwiched between two of my best weeks. Don’t make yourself crazy trying to figure it out. Just know that there is an ebb and flow to everyone’s portfolio. Well…maybe not Tim’s.
I wouldn’t recommend that. That file is your intellectual property and shows your method of production. Your work could be modified in any number of ways that wouldn’t be covered under the license.
This comes up frequently as it is a little confusing (it also confused me when I joined the last few days of March). Whatever month you posted your first file (not when you joined) is the month that counts for the new author list. If you posted your first track at the end of the month, the remaining days of that month are all the time you have to try to make the list.
Thanks for all of your excellent efforts!
Very nicely said, Russell. Next career: motivational speaker.
If you check out the monthly top sellers list from past months you will see that the marketplace in general doesn’t really seem to have up and down months. Yes, there was a lull at the end of December for the holidays, but basically the number of sales on the top monthly sellers list just goes up up up. It is eye-opening to check out this list from a year ago or more.
Certainly, individuals authors have fluctuations due to the ebb and flow of the marketplace (this week was inexplicably slower than last week for me) but the overall trend is for increased sales every month.
