I don't think it's so much a "none of your business" thing; I think it's just that all of the thousands of shops here are different and catering to different shoppers. Then you figure in the sellers themselves and how much time and work they put into the shops, how much time they can spend promoting, how many other shops they may have, etc.

I had no sales from April 28 till June 21 because I got irritated with the new attribute rules and decided to spend my time working at my other site, plus the rest of my life and my "real" job which got really lively for a while. Then life calmed down a little, and I started tweaking a couple of listings here, I tweeted a couple of tweets on Twitter, and within 24-48 hours I had a sale.

I could never give an avg per day, because I can't work this like the really good sellers do. Plus, it's summer which is slow time in my field and in others too, maybe.

I know it's maddening to wait for that first sale, but all I can say is to keep at it. Keep listing, tweet, Facebook if you do that (I'm not good at it but I have tried!), blog, leave links in forums and groups if they permit it. If you sell elsewhere, make sure they get your address here, maybe with an offer for xx% off their first order from your new store. Nothing that could be considered spam or anything, just good marketing.

All the best to you!

I go along with what Becky said. I looked at your store and it seems to be a lot of different items, so you get to really have fun marketing to all the different sorts of folks that might want your items. You might want to increase your listing titles as you are allowed 100 characters. the title is one of the things that will show up on search engines and you want people to understand what it is you are selling in one easy line.

I think you are saying I should add more words into the title of each product to describe more words will get more into the search engines?

Hi. I noticed you listed a Cowboy Rooster Birdhouse - - but it says Out of Stock in the title.

Perhaps you should "hide" this item until you have it back in stock. A potential customer still has the ability to hit the Buy Now button on that item... and it would be unfortunate if your first sale was one you couldn't readily fulfill.

Otherwise, your store looks good. So it's just a matter of time.

In this item
http://dehartconnections.ecrater.com/p/11801237/bless-this-home-candle

you have a lot of great features you could include in the title. Look at my underlined words.
It is a pillar candle.

It burns for 60 hours.

It is made of palm oil.

Make sure you aren't wasting any title space with / / /.

In your tech listings put the model number in the title. When I am looking for tech stuff, even though I have no intention of buying it on line, I check the model number on line to see if I am getting a good deal in the store.

As for how many sales per week any one averages. That is as different as asking a mixed group of people how many calories a day they consume.

If you are an artist selling paintings in the 1000s of $, you might sell one a year. If you sell .25 trading cards you might sell dozens a day if you are a good seller.

Yes, I think many of your listings need more key words in your titles. You are allowed 100 characters here, us them. Not all your titles fully explain what you are selling.

After looking at your stuff, it looks as if you are a dropshipper, or ordering out of a catalog and just using the title they gave you. If so, and obviously I could be wrong about that, you are competing against a whole bunch more people selling the exact same stuff and most likely with the same titles. To sell anything, your titles need to stand out and have the keywords so that is someone does do a search for a candle or whatever yours will match their search parameters.
