Mid month sales slumps

Recommended Posts

worynjay

I used to sell extensively on Trademe in New Zealand and I noticed there was always a mid month slump in sales. I am experiencing one at the moment. Is this a common trend here in RSA, or should I start worrying?

The reason for mid month sales slump is that most people are broke at this time of the month.:oh:

Plus the postal strike(which I'm not sure is over yet - the last time they said everything was under control, but it wasn't). I want to buy stamps and DVDs, but I don't know when I'll receive them. (And most of these sellers are in small towns where they don't have a Postnet etc. option.)

I think this broke mid-month phenomenon is a worldwide thing….everyone bought far too much on credit in the past good times.

 

I find it amusing when we eat out and someone goes through a handful of overdrawn credit cards before they find one with some credit so they can pay the bill!

 

I also find it amazing how many credit cards some of the “less privileged” of us have….bulging wallets full of credit and store cards.

We must be the poor relations Rose and I each only have one card…and no store cards.

On the education side I am glad our boys are educated and settled in good careers….as private education costs are horrendous these days.

"Expand your range and volume" has naught to do with cup-size, middle-aged girth or absence on the forum you hooligans.....damn, julle ruk die dam onder die blerrie eend uit....:nuts:

We all just have to tough it out, as was mentioned, maybe time to expand in other directions....new ideas etc. Good time to reassess, sort , reinvent ?
