    In the United States, typically when comparing the first 9 days of August to the first 9 days of July you wouldn't be lower - because of the 4th of July holiday during the first week of July every year.

    All depends what you are selling. If you have a "back to school" site, sales can pick up in August. It you diversify and have a few "summer-only sites" you will notice fewer seasonal drops.

    Sales-speaking, August was and will be a bad month, even if you are promoting something related to "back to school" or "vacations" your sales will decrease for the simple reason that people are actually going on vacations.

    The more you diversify, the less you will feel the decay, but you will feel it anyway.

    Cheers!
