Hi everyone, I’m still catching up on the past income reports and don’t want to waste your time with lots of talk. I honestly don’t have all to much to report right now. We’re moving into the hot phase as work right now during Q4 and a lot of my energy is also being put into our other side project, therefore it’s been fairly quiet recently. I’ll save the details for another time. Overall I must reiterate that July through October is always a quiet time of the year and sales don’t ramp up again before November. This happens every ear.
Based on my own sales tracking, September saw EU gross sales which dropped slightly by 4.7% versus the previous month (53.1% down on the US marketplace – no surprise here given the big increase in August) and only 0.1% lower than the same period last year. The volatility is normal for this time of year. Overall it seems that the US marketplace is suffering a bit….or at least I am. Sales definitely haven’t been as consistent as in the past.
Redbubble sales were a bit lower than last month, but still within the range that should be considered “stable”. I’ve decided to ramp up the uploads again in order to generate more significant revenue in this space.
