mine have been low since the second week of April.
I am current selling half of what I used to sell.
The months of January, February and March were stellar for me. But then April came and BAM!
Sales were sliced in half. And it's been that way ever since.
Some days even worse. It used to stress me so much back when the low sales first started, but then I decided not to worry myself to death and just focus on putting out more content instead.
Sales on Amazon Kindle now outpace my pubit sales, which wasn't the case before.
That's about the same timing as my decreases.
I'm sure the economy has much to do with it as well.
Same as you -- I'm continuing to publish more in the face of this. It seems when you accomplish gains in one area, you see a drop in another but if we keep adding titles to our published works, eventually we'll get ahead of it and hopefully maintain descent sales.
I'll also add that the content sites I publish articles on, that pay both adsense share and by page-view calculations, have also seen significant decreases. I'm hoping we see an improvement in the recession or depression that's been ongoing -- not the pretend improvements some in government have claimed were occurring but some real economy turn-arounds (about 8% unemployment rate right now)! Everyone who believes in praying, should add it to their prayer-list!
Here's my track record for Pubit sales in 2011
122 books in January
178 books in February
120 books in March
51 books in April
29 in May
14 so far in June
in the meantime, my Amazon Kindle sales have
103 books in January
120 books in February
162 book in March
166 books in April
221 in May
201 so far in June
It does not seem quite right for sales to increase on one site and decrease on another in the way they have.
....BOOM! there you go!!
APRIL is where sales took a PLUNGE for me too!
(I posted this in another thread - hope you don't mind)
I've emailed Pubit! in regards to June Sales. The only response I received was to read these threads.
This is the thing... In May my book took off and was selling an average of 150 eBooks per day... It was on the Kids Nook Books Bestseller list for the entire month. Then June came...
When B&N started changing the website sales dropped to an average of 2 per day. I emailed them with my concern. Something happened with sales when they started changing the website platform. The book is not in the top lists as before and now harder to find. If sales are lost... How would you know?
The only thing good about the change is that all the eBook reviews are together with the actual book. Pubit! was top dog for sales but now it looks as if Amazon is selling more.
It's good to hear that kid books have a chance. I uploaded in med June. Not doing well at all.
I really hope that whatever it is gets better. The search words weren't working for Pubit! books and that can cost a lot of loss of sales.
I am sorry your book dropped in sales.
