With Christmas and New Year fast approaching it makes sense to not bother uploading anything till the new year right?

I have a few items that are ready for uploading.

What have you found to be the best time to upload new items around this time of year?

I think it’s not so simply to answer. Definitely this time of the year is a bit slower, but on the other side you’ll be floating at the home page/top of the recently uploaded files list longer and who know how it will reflect on your sales, right? :)

I guess after the first week of January it should be ok, I never tested it though :)

Well I could work on updates for my existing themes over the holidays. Then upload some fresh new items in the new year. Think that would be a nice way of doing things.

I get 10 days off from my full time job so I’m going to squash all bugs and crack out some much needed updates! Then bam! New items for a new year! :D

This comes up every year :)

What I find is my sales are higher just after the 15th when the payouts come and again at teh end of the month when people get paid.

Re Christmas though – I wouldn’t really worry too much I mean if the themes are good enough they sell themselves.

Merry Christmas everybody :-)
