About $516 This December

12 replies
This is my first December since I started making some consistent earnings online and I noticed a drop. Did you also notice a drop in your earnings?

Well, it's 31st and I still have some few hours to completely close the year. I may still have some money before the close of the day

    This month was awful. Usually get serious $$$ for the holiday, saw a 58% dropoff from last 3 years. Hoping to drop a few more lines in the water and catch bigger fish in 2012 all year long.

    A few weeks before Christmas day was dreadful but thankfully it's come back with vengeance!

    I made $300 less than my average goal but I knew it would be quieter although I hoped it wouldn't.

    The Holidays are traditionally bad for any kind of business. People want to save money for Christmas presents. The trick is to sell them on something and say they will get a discount after the holidays if they buy right away.

      Well done. Will you be able to continue promoting Amazon in 2012 when this UK cookie law gets inforced?

    No, I earned more this month than in any other month of 2011.

    sales were up 240% in december. Most info marketers can't see past their nose though.

    I knew it would be a big December for selling information judging by the sales increase of such things like the kindle and the nook.

    Most info marketers stop running ads, and stop marketing as actively as they should for the fact that they "think" sales should be down.

    I on the other hand increased my ad spending, listed information on all of the different platforms and seen a major increase in sales in the so called "slow month"

    I did notice a drop in earnings, but it was expected for me this time of year. I'm sure it really depends on what your promoting, or selling. I'm sure there were many IMers whose earnings skyrocket this time of year.
