Depends on the volume, of coures ;)

Quick, short-term sales are awesome when there are several hundreds or thousands of them – the earnings would keep me afloat for a while :) Then again, when in enough volume, slow steady sales can be a great way to keep a steady flow of income.

Generally, I’d simply choose the one with the highest volume (within reasonable time).

Good opinions from Rayzong and Joost. Feel free to be part of this thread.

Like Joost said, “Quick short-term sales” are awesome when there are several items that are hot cakes. On the other hand, “Slow but steady sales” will keep you buoyant always.

Quick and steady sales! LOL

If 2-3 of files already generating decent money, I go for long-sellable item as next release. If the residual income almost stopped, I go for Quickly selling concepts. This is one of the flexibilities we observe while making stock files!

But sales is not something easily predicatble before upload; in my personal experience, I had to make too many changes / improvements to the file after upload for longterm sales which I not even aware about at design phase, before upload.

You know Charles, I will go for ‘slow but steady’ with one strong reason. Slow but steady sales is the best because of the continuous cash flow which I believe is awesome than ‘quick short-term sales’. It is awful that an item will sale very fast and all of a sudden out-dated. Therefore, slow but steady cash flow will keep you buoyant at all time.

If I remember that story rightly, the armadillo wins.
