How's September for you? 2 pages: [1] 2

How is September going for you? Mine has been so slow. I was thinking Fall sales should pick up here soon. I know the Holiday season is right around the corner but I am SO ready for it now (not the weather just the sales). Are other people Rocking September or in the same boat as me?

It is a rollercoaster ride for me, ups and downs so far but it is just getting going.

I am ready for fall sales and weather!

It has been a long hot muggy summer here in Oklahoma this year.

It is still 88 degrees at 10:10 pm!

I have had my window air conditioner running full tilt for 2 months now.

No sales here for July or August. No expectations for September or going forward. Still getting views, but nothing else.

Mostly selling greeting cards, they don't add up to much money

Ok so far. I sold some Halloween stuff.

I haven't made any September sales. August gave me two tiny sales. I already didn't make a whole lot here, just enough for extra gas money or a nice gift a few times a year, but this year has been horrible.

Of course, I don't have the time or money (or online followers) to do a whole lot of marketing, so there's that. And I have been re-working a lot of things the last couple of months, so that could eat into business.

Still, I'm not convinced that's all it is. I've done way better with far less in previous years, so it's hard to not be frustrated with lack of sales this year.

I sold a roll of wrapping paper today and would like to think holiday shopping is beginning but the design is not real Christmassy so it could have been for a birthday or something...

1 set (3 items golf stuff), on the 2nd.

Guess golf collections are becoming my niche.

"Eleven" sales this month. I put that in quotes because someone ordered 6 post it notes today, all customized and it comes out to 6 sales. Just depends on how you look at it. Smile

Sold a tie yesterday and today, I love selling ties. Smile

You may have to wait because it's based on cleared sales, which won't happen for that 10-dollar sale until a month from now.

After you’ve been paid $100 from sales made on the .com domain. International sales don’t count towards proseller.

I made well over $100 but just made over $100 in USD only. Grin Grin Grin

Cool. Sales made this month pay out in November, so I think you’ll have to wait till then.

Do what I did for the two pro levels I attained: Ignore all of it and then be surprised one day when an extra forum shows up. ("Hello? What's this? Let me see...")
Posted: Wednesday, September 11, 2019 12:20:23 PM
Ignore it? Teach me how? But, since Fall is coming and I love Halloween, I might be too busy decorating to keep up with this..so maybe November is fine lol

Heck, it's kind of like getting a blue ribbon for something. Once you've gotten it, what do you do with it?

It has picked up a little bit. Hopefully these upcoming sales will increase our sales. I am interested to see if the ornament sale will kick off some Christmas shopping. Fingers crossed.

Sorry double post.

Update had 3 sell for the weekend. 2 golf items and 1 coffee cup with pattern ( I still love patterns but thats a snow ball in H sell)

7 sell and 6 of them were golf related.

Still trying to honest about numbers, but all trends die in time. Its more than a hobby, but cannt be counted as a part time job or business.

I have had no sales in September. Sometimes feel like my products are invisible to the world, no matter what I do. Ugh, but here I am spending all my free time on Zazzle.
Posted: Monday, September 16, 2019 5:02:23 AM
I sold a postcard this weekend. So there's that. Stick out tongue LOL

Been slow here as well. I'm averaging a sale every 3 to 4 days. I did much better during the dry season so I assumed with great expectations that as soon as selling season hit I would do very well. I'm appreciative that I'm still getting sales though. I hope that I'll hit a sweet spot and the seasonal sales will start rolling in.

September is slower for me than August was but not dead.
Posted: Tuesday, September 17, 2019 8:53:36 PM
August started my slow down. We'll just have to see how it goes. Strange, I just realized you're from El Reno OkIdea I lived in Hydro and Weatherford when I was younger,in more recent years I lived in Tulsa and now Muskogee..yes Okie from Muskogee lol. I'll never get used to the heat, my whole family is from NY and PA. Been to El Reno before. Nice to meet a fellow Okie @ShelliFitzpatrick

Howdy! I am a transplant from Colorado. But I’ve been here for 30 years now and I am mostly okie now! Lol. I used to live in Weatherford too. Also Moore, Tecumseh, and Oklahoma City. Been all over the state and it really is so much more beautiful than people think. But yes, the heat and humidity and cold bone chilling wind in winter never get easier for me. And the ice storms! I can deal with tornadoes better than ice storms. Hydro! Home of Lucille’s and the peanut factory! Blink and you’ll miss it. I know it well. Our 10 acres of land we used to live on ( still own it) is south of the Cherokee truckstop close to the Canadian river. Not far from Hydro. Yep, now I live in town, onion burger capital of the world. Lol. It’s becomming a suburb of OKC pretty quickly nowadays.

Good to meet another okie too! The quintessential okie😜

It has just been crickets for me for the last 2 (almost 3) months, but I have not made anything new in a while(I can't get my head around designing right now) and I find that when I add new things it seems to spur on a sale. I know the 2 are not related, but that's just how it seems to me.

I am trying not to get discouraged and so I have been focusing on reorganizing my shop and trying to expand my promotional efforts instead of depending solely on the MP and the kindness of affiliates which is where my sales come from.

Crossing my fingers that I start getting some sales from the Holiday shopping season.
