How many hits does it take to sell an item? I have 54 on a token. Does anybody know what the record is for number of hits?

First of all a little note about the hits, that counter records all hits including when you view an item or if someone refreshes the page that's another hit. So the 54 hits can be inflated.

That said I have an item that so far this month has 101 hits, it's been up 3-4 months and consistently gets hits but no buyers. But it's a sculpture and those don't sell as easily as my jewelry. There's no rule when it comes to hits, it might sell after 30 hits, 300, or 3,000.

I have 212 on the Disney Princess ceiling fan & 130 on Glow in the dark tinkerbell ceiling fan
& the funny thing is I've sold quite a few this month & NONE of those 2.
So go figure Laughing

No rule. I have one item in my store that at one time had over 4,000 hits in a month - it was being discussed on a few forums. Normally if gets about 1,000 hits a month. IF I sell one every 3 months I'm lucky!

It will sell when the right person finds it.

I'm finding hits don't equal sales either. In fact, I haven't had a sale in over a month. Do those of you who have been here a while notice a real slow down (or downright stop) is sales over the summer months?

sales have slowed down for me the past two months. my sales grew every month since I started (about 1 1/2 yrs ago) but when May came around they declined, the same for June so far. I just work harder than ever and do bring in some sales. Guess monies are just tight for everyone right now. Of course, sales usually slow in the summer months anyway.

I have never had the fabled 'summer slowdown'. Collectors can't give up their habit for 3 months!
But as I have said elsewhere here, my sales have rocketed the past month-due to my promotional efforts. You get what you put into it, no lie.

Texas,
good for you Laughing but I have to say that I spend way to much time on the internet promoting all of my sites. even to the point of exhaustion.

I had a HUGE order here almost a month ago, so I'm thankful!
