I’ve been thinking about this a lot… when’s the right time to have a file hit the marketplace. During the week, Monday-Wednesday… probably. Over the course of the month? Near the beginning, maybe? But which month is the best? February? No idea. Does it even matter?

I’m worried about submitting a big file at the wrong time… if that exists. Does anyone hold on to your files and wait for the opportune time to release? If so, when would that be for you and why?

So many BURNING QUESTIONS !

Release your file on March 15th and it will shoot to the top. But don’t bother on any other day of the year. It’s simply not worth it. :)

Focus all your efforts into making quality project. It really doesn’t matter when you upload as long there is a demand for the type of project you uploaded. Many times I have witnessed files that were uploaded on Saturday afternoon and by Sunday they were in Top Sellers, so yeah…

Transfer all your worries into constructive thinking for the next project :)

All the best.

p.s.

Maybe I’m right or maybe I’m just comforting myself because I am uploading something in a few moments :D Time will tell. Good luck to both of us :)

Oh and don’t forget to upload it at 24:61. It’s best time for uploads.

@felt & cyzer – I really thought that you are going to be a little bit more serious about these stuff and help this author with a good advice, rather then to write nonsense stuff like this… I mean, January? March? Are you crazy? Even a baby knows that upload in december 23rd at 19:34 is the best possible time ever! pff, march…

I was going to reply to you all with a smart comment, but a bee stung me inside the mouth earlier and just totally ruined my day. This is so painful :(

One thing is for sure… the worst day to upload a file is on a day you get stung by a bee inside the mouth.
