    Has this month been really slow for anyone else? Last month I was averaging $8.50 a day which I was really happy with. This first half of the month im at $2.60 which I am not to happy about. Is this just part of the exciting roller coaster ride of IM?

    I think you'll need a way bigger turnover before you can see anything consistent. The surfers are still there - it's not like half the earth decided to have a no-internet month :).

    So yes, it's part of the ride.

    It is because summer is over. School is back in. Shit like that. It isn't that half the world is having no internet month, but half the earth has more important shit to do besides fill out surveys, download shit, or purchase internet products. School is a huge factor. Especially in this economy, people are working and going to school, or working and helping their kids complete homework... less time to browse the internet. I always find a boost in traffic during the holidays. But you wont see huge gains again really until May-June. Just work hard to get your average up until then...Then come summer, You will see another big boost! Good Luck!!!

    Yes, up and downs all the time. I was between 1200 - 1700 per day. Now this month I'm averaging 800 - 1200 daily. Give it a couple more days. You will be back to where you were. ;)

    Sales are extremely low now, indeed. Might be the 9/11 period as well, don't know.

    It's been a good month so far for me... Well ahead of my required projections to meet my goals... I hope the month keeps going as well as they have.

    Sorry guys, it's a good month so far, still on the upswing.

    LOL, no need to be sorry! Also its not about projections (as i am meeting my goals too) but about earnings this month relative to last month!

    Hey guys,

    Are we talking a-ma-z--on here? If so, how many sites do you guys have to be producing that kind of many.

    I have 5 sites, and so far this month is $0.

    Hope you don't mind sharing the # of sites.

    My online sales for my digital products, and my websites, and eBay and Amazon are all down. Sales are lower at this point compared to the same time range in the last 3 years.

    Yes my month over month is better. To meet my goals it has to be or else I don't meet them. I'm still in a growing phase of my business, so if I'm not growing I'm actually falling behind...
