I don’t know if this makes much sense from a business perspective, but I’ve always intended to be somewhat transparent when it comes to our sales. Soon after converting this site to a blog, I wrote an early sales report that still gets hits to this day, but I’ve never been good with keeping up with them.
Last year was a tremendous success for us on CafePress, far exceeding what I predicted our sales would be earlier in the year. I’m not sure yet if this year sales are slower so I’m interesting in comparing past sales. So why start with June, then? Well, June 2008 was the first month we ever had a sale so it just seems like the best place to start to capture it all. And away we go.
Number of Sales: 1
Number of Sales: 2
Number of Sales: 13
Wow! So I think you can see what I mean. We went from 2 sales in June of 2009 to 13 sales in June of 2010. We sold 3 items with the Immaculate Heart of Mary design, but 3 other designs featuring the Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Michael, and St. Therese each had double item sales. Can’t wait to see what June 2011 brings!
