    Holidays, weekends, and summer are all very bad times for me. A holiday weekend in the summer has to be the worst of all!

    I agree with Miss Donna. Yesterday (Fri) I did okay but I won't be surprised if it's almost stone dead from today until Tuesday.

    In the summer, all the buyers are outside so you might as well join them. Expect a SEVERE drop!

    Just remember that school will reopen in the fall, trapping all those parents back home--and, soon enough, they're back in front of their computers ordering things, where they belong!

    Tis the season to build and get ready for when "they" get tired of all that fresh air and get back to their computers<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon12.gif> It's slow on cj although I thought yesterday turned out quite well until this morning when 2 sales for over $600 each were reversed...unqualified leads?????

    Why is it my sales at cj over $500 (except for a couple of merchants) are reversed!
    Why can I have sales over at befree for $2K and not have them reversed...
    Think I'll go climb another tree and contemplate...why is it so :eek:

    True, summer is really bad in general. With it being such a big holiday weekend all my stats are 1/2 of a normal Saturday.

    Mj, <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Think I'll go climb another tree and contemplate<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Isn't it a little too soon for that? lol :rolleyes:

    About this 'severe drop' - and I don't mean the Mousejockey kind..

    Say you are earning $1000 per month on average, and assuming you do not add pages, and this $1000 a month is what you always earn. What level of sales could you expect over the summer months?

    I've been at this slightly less than a year so don't know what to expect. My sites are not especially geared to holiday makers.

    I,

    Figuring percentages like that has never really been my thing. So put it like this (looking at my Trend Graph in other window): last year I made about $1200 in May and it went down to about $750 or so in June...July picked up a bit but I had Extensions galore which made it $800 in the bank...August, more of the same. Sept. would have gotten going but I hadn't done any promotion for a while and the ranks dropped so I missed a month. (I'll TRY to start typing again sooner this year...)

    In October the Money Engine started running again at full speed and then my new stuff hit in November to make some REAL money!

    Well that explains the reason my sales to the US went down (us Brits had no idea you guys actually take holidays!!). Anyway they are back up to day so that's a relief.
