Hi Eric,

Thanks for this, really appreciate you taking the time to do these posts / analyses and well done on becoming part of the Envato staff! :)

One question though – I assume you’re saying the Summer slow down is a myth for top selling authours right? I’ve had two very poor August sales since I started trading on AJ (I began selling two years ago) and I know a lot of other authours have had the same experience.

So I’m wondering what myth has been busted exactly as I believe I’ve continued to improve the quality of my music based on the quick succession of sales I usually get on tracks before they disappear into the mass of other tracks, something that didn’t happen in the beginning, yet Summer has continued to prove itself as a poor period of sales for me and others.

Thanks,

Taco

July was my worst month since i joined. even last July things were good. August was shaping up to be the worst month so far but in the last week alone WHAM, a ton of sales and off we go again. i have totally given up with trying to make sense of AJ buying patterns cos their simply isnt one. i have seen loads of people suffer last 2 months only to see shedloads boom and make top sales. so i just upload and forget till the months end now

I hope you’re right BTV, this month has by far been my-worst-month-ever.com

Have you tried AudioJungle Radio? I think you can control the volume of the track using that (not on my computer at the moment, but google it and I’m sure you’ll find it).

Not so great that my driest week ever for sales coincides with Envato’s one week only 70% earnings offer. Happened last year as well, I had fewer than normal sales slap-bang when earnings were at 70% :(

That, combined with two sale reversals this month, means I am totally, totally, totally demotivated at this point in time. Grab your coat Summer, you’ve overstayed your welcome you chief.

I just got my first sale reversal :( and think that the last I read about this was that it’s just tough luck if it happens. Is that right? i.e. Are these types of things something we just have to accept as part of the business, or is there anyway we can investigate them further / find out who the pikey was who stole from me and slowly drip-feed him/her vinegar via their eyes (among other things)?
