Compared to October 2011, $$ are exactly the same, but would hope for growth due to 25% increase in portfolio size and 5% increase in royalty rate since then.

I can't tell because all my GI sales have come in (which I am very very pleased with incidently) and my stats don't seperate the 2 incomes despite clicking on the photo/audio buttons.

Based on the stats its my WME. Very scared and unhappy.


There is a way to see if I make CC sales (assuming I had CC sales, of course)?

Well, it was an improvement on September, but given that September was my WMOTY that's not saying much.


Figures based on StatsPlus, so should include all sales - compared to:


                    $$          DLs
Sep 2012:    +14%      +3%
Oct  2011:    -14%      -31%


Looks good compared to last month, but it was helped by two ELs and a video sale, without which it would only be just a little ahead.


So, 2nd worst month this year, and year-on-year results definitely not meeting expectations - but, on the positive side, it looks like I should make the next RC level shortly, and I have hopes for the E+ move to GI, so I am still hoping for things to improve during the coming months.  Or am I being overly optimistic?

Only marginally better than Sept. (Sept being the worst month in 2 years).  So what has always been my best month for the year is 9th out of 10 months for 2012. DLs continue to stay low. It's like a never ending summer sales slump.

Mind-boggling worst month of the year. Compared to Oktober 2011 -50 % $.


DL wise im on par with June 2006, the year I started.


And NO, this hasn´t met my expectations.

Very bad. Nearly 40% down on August, which was before the latest big change of course. Nearly 50%  down on April, my best month.


I don't know what's been done to things here, but some of it needs undoing. Profit may be all to the owners of the moment, but they might like to think of the fact that we as contributors are here to make money too. Whatever they call themselves. "Agent" or "Reseller" or whatever, and however they might change the ASA, they are still undertaking to sell our work for us. Take that away and interest will fall off very quickly.


Also two months to get essential stuff like the zoom function working again is ridiculous. Let alone the ever increasing number of features which become broken with each "improvement" of the site. If the zoom and whatever else has gone for good then say so and let's move on, instead of waiting for the fix to see if it brings thiongs back to normal..
