So, I fell really short of my October listing goal. I had hoped to get 200 new listings up, but I barely made it half way to that goal. I ended up getting sick at the beginning of the month, and did no new listing for about a week. (And a month later my cough is STILL hanging on! Enough already.) I lost a lot of momentum that week, and while I had finally gotten back up to speed by the end of October, there was no regaining all of that lost ground. I think it would have been a stretch anyway, but if I had been listing that week and saw the goal as possibly attainable, I probably would have worked harder at the end of the month too, trying to reach it. As it was, I knew I wouldn’t get there, so while I was still listing, I didn’t push as hard as I could/should have.
Sales were pretty good though. My new goal is to average $100 in sales each day. Some days I met that goal and more, some days I fell short. I wasn’t able to maintain that average for the whole month (that week off took its toll) but I am thinking November may be my month!
For listing too. I’m keeping my goal the same for November – 200 new listings. Tis the season, and I can’t sell it if it’s not listed, right?
For some reason the tickers aren’t posting correctly, and the links have to be clicked instead of just showing up in the blog post. Here’s hoping they magically fix themselves, like they sometimes do.
