To put it simple.. my new files arn’t selling. At all.

Usually when I’d release a new file it would sell a couple times and then only a few times more when it disappeared off the home page. But that’s not the case with my last 7 (!) files. Most of them did not sell at all, while others only sold once.

Can anyone explain this sudden drop? Should I just ignore it and consider it temporary? Are you experiencing the same? Should I change something about the files I create?

I don’t know man but I’ve got my eye on your thumbnail gadget when I get some time to work on my blog. That file’s pretty cool :)

I think this topic was discussed enough in other threads. I have a drop, you have a drop, many AD authours have a drop for about weeks.

Ignore it…...

I know, but for some reason it specifically regards new files – old ones are still selling (less, but still selling).

I guess your right, it was probably ignorant to start a new thread about this topic as it’s closely related to other threads.. my bad!

Yep new files are harder to sell, some reasons:

A year ago AS2 dominated, but now sales are split between AS2 and AS3 … so now your file is going to be 50% less in demand, unless it’s AS2 + AS3

More authors, more files, more competition so therefore harder to sell new files.

Old files have the advantage of high sales over time, and because new files struggle to sell, the old files will dominate popular files and search pages for some time and remain selling.

There’s a lot of competition these days and I think we’re getting a lot of one time buyers instead of people depositing and buying one item then having left over cash to buy a few other files.

I think buyers are more particular about what they buy.

That’s my theory.
