Can somebody tell me why the sells are sooooo BAD ?

because
a) the demand on your type of items is not as high as before
b) your items) is/are in a higher competition with other items than before
c) the marketplace gets less pageviews because of less advertisment or other influences

Sorry, but that´s just as specific as i can tell you :D and we can´t do anything against it, just create more items with good/better quality :P

From my personal experience i can´t confirm that this is a bad month. Roughly calculated, my sales (regarding 15th or 16th December) are about half of the sales of November…and November was a fantastic month, the best so far.

Anyways, I expect a decline in sales in the last week of December because of the festive season.
Hope your sales will pick up again soon :)

People who sales party flyers or christmas items have normal sales or increase their sales. All the other authors have a bad month i guess

It’s good to get out Christmas related items before December – at least one month ahead. People start advertising 2-3 months before. My sales are ok – not super, but I think the early releases are helping.

mitdralla:
But in the professional field before Christmass there is a drift work. And companies are spending easier if they need more expenses, invoices for the present year – before it will ends.

Although, if they pay the money to Envato until 31th of December, they get the invoice anyway, without they should spend even a cent for an item.

There is no pattern to follow that can assure sales increase because it is very unpredictable. Even items you believed to be top notch might not even sale as you imagined. The secret is – to work on items that you are known for and try to create what that is highly needed at that point in time.
