My stats through the 15th. Same disclaimer as always.
Capsule summary: I’m having my best month ever. If I didn’t get another sale through the end of the month it would still be respectable, and unlike most months the sales are not in fits and spurts — every day when I wake up its BAM! You’ve got money! I attribute this success more to organic growth (and, partially, to a rejiggering of my AdWords campaign which has helped it substantially) than anything I have done. Also fixing bugs with demos people downloaded in February has probably caused some sales to trickle in.
Sales: 19 (+1 which was refused by Google — I gave the customer a key and asked them to fix their info with Google, never heard from them again. C’est la vie.)
Gross Income: about $475:
AdWords: $90 budgeted
CDs: $6 so far
I think by the end of the month I will probably have in excess of $800 worth of sales and possibly, knock on wood, I will make my $1,000 sales target in March rather than in April.
Web stats will come in another update. I was inspired by Nick Hebb (you might know him as the flowcharting software tycoon) to try making a graph in OpenOffice to chart my growth in, e.g., downloads over the last 9 months. Wow, its been 9 months already… where has the time gone. This will have to wait as I have other commitments today.
Super-minor update on my next project: Its mostly on hold for the moment due to the amount of work I’ve been doing trying to find my next day job. I plan on releasing the name and some comments on market selection this weekend.
