September sales started strong, started to wane in the middle and picked up at end, making it a pretty good month.
When I analyze my sales data at the end of every month I look for two things.
1. Did I see growth from the following year?
2. Did I see growth from the following month?
At the end of this month I can happily say yes to both of these questions.
September 2017 had a 44% increase in sales from September 2016.
September sales were 14% higher than last month.
Positive growth is what like to see.
Below is a chart of September's top selling product types. This changes on a monthly basis.
The chart is a bit jumbled, but you get the idea.
Invitations made up 37% of my sales
Favor Boxes - 18%
Cards - 15% (This is new for me, I hardly ever sell cards)
Photo Cards - 12% (Wedding Thank Yous)
Stickers - 8% (Also new for me, I never sell stickers)
Ping Pong - 3%
I think it's great to have a wide range of Zazzle products in order to see consistent growth in sales. Invitations are new to me, I just started working on them in the last six months. I'm very glad I did it has helped to increase sales.
I didn't make any referrals this month but hoping to make more during the Christmas selling season.
My product creation is on hold for now due to long hours working on the farm and studying for chemistry. Ok, yes, I'm a nerd. I'm perfecting my math skills for the fun of it.
I hope the Zazzle prep I did for Christmas over the summer will see an increase in sales this year. I have goals to reach!
Good luck Zazzle designers!
