Looking but not buying.

    I wonder if you'd give me your thoughts...

    I am getting lots of views on my resources but not many downloads. They are priced at the minimum £2.00 and I don't think they are **** (this would be he most obvious reason I am aware) so I'm wondering if there is another reason people are looking but not buying.

    I did have a thought which could be widely off the mark but... If you see the previews of any resource the potential purchaser could just take the content and copy it into a format on their PC as TES lets you see the whole resource.

    Thoughts? Advice?

    On average about 5-8% of people who view my resources go on to buy them. If you are worried about people using your preview you can always zip some of the files and leave some for previews. Good luck :)

    Ah so that's what you do- zip them. Thanks :)
    I need to produce some more but I just agonise about getting them just right. I think I just need to go for it and upload.

    Zip em or merge em. Previews only show a few pages! It's worth taking the time to get them as perfect as possible before you upload and be careful not to breach copyright. It will save you time in the long run :)

    I just avoid using images at the moment or will look at Creative Commons licence stuff. Copyright a nightmare otherwise I imagine!
