    How has everyone done in the current 20% sale on resources costing £5 or more? I have only sold 1. However there is still one more day of the sale to go. Fingers crossed tomorrow will be more fruitful. Wishing the same to all TES authors.

    Got a bit lucky on Friday with two of my larger resources, apart from that, not too many £5+ sales. Also hoping Sunday will be a good one - it's usually my best selling day of the week. Good luck!

    Selling a few less than £5 but the sale isn't really having any affect on my sales of bundles, feel it's a bit useless really

    Had three sales of resources over £5 with all my others being smaller prices so not sure the sale has had much of an affect.

    Ditto - only 3 sales of resources over £5 on Friday/Saturday.

    Sales seem to have less impact than the voucher codes. AND vouchers were a large factor in the bumper March sales most authors had in '17. Don't think we'll see them again though - too much abuse :( Do Tes do enough to promote their sales? Do they email ALL their millions of members with a link? I didn't even know about it until Saturday morning!!

    It has made absolutely no difference! :(
    It would be good if TES emailed anyone who had saved/wishlisted any resource over £5 to say, "Still wanting to buy this? Buy now for 20% off"

    Good day om Friday but Today and Yesterday poor.
    Does not help that there are so many technical glitches such as 20% sale not attached to the correct resources.
    Also sales sometimes not being allocated to the seller account, only know this because a friend purchased, how many occasions of this is there that I do not know about?

    Well, unless there is a miracle this evening, today has been almost a washout.

    Zero sales over £5 and September is on track to be worse than August.

    As a side note I'm fed up with the pop up telling me to get £3 off my first purchased resource (something I don't qualify for!)

    The only thing making me feel not just so bad is that everyone seems to be in the same boat! feel like I'm sinking as last september was fantastic this month is pathetic!

    Keep the faith. Last year I posted how disappointed I was with September sales and actually stopped making resources for a bit. It did pick up...a lot. Could be a trend...

    Yesterday's Stats:

    All views: 240
    Free Downloads: 543!
    Sales: 2
    Conversion: 1%

    Bloomin' awful!

    My free stuff clearly does not seem to be feeding my premium stuff the way I hoped it would :(

    Like you said in your previous post - keep the faith...... all those who did free downloads may come back tomorrow to purchase when they see how good your free resources are!

    Just curious. How did everyone respond to the 30p transaction fee? I took the hit, kept my prices the same and haven't noticed a drop off.
