Low sales in last few months.

Discussion started by kryckeinc

Hi, I'm selling firearms 3D models, with a plans of expanding to other sections, like sci-fi, props, etc. But still, I'm not quite sure that filling my store with models shall be worth it. I'm getting very low sales on what I currently have, 5 sales in this month which is the record since November of 2018. Trying to add more content but this doesn't seem to help at all.

I don't have any idea of what's wrong if it is, and what to do to get better sales.

Ideas/suggestions?

Looking at your models, it's certainly not quality or price that's holding off buyers, I think that ratio is more than good.

I know that with my models it took some time for google to show them higher up in searches. However cgtrader does not show any tracking about from where people came to your product page, if it was on-page search, google, pinterest... so also for my models I don't know if that's relevant and it's hard to find out.

You could try and see if your titles, tags and descriptions contain actually searched keywords (you can try the free browser extension keywords everywhere). As an example: A search with keywords everywhere for "low poly gun" shows that it's googled by people approximately 250 times per month. For one of my models, the "main keyword" is searched for 70/mo, which converts to about 1 sale per month on cgtrader alone. Your sales seem to approximately match that conversion rate if we consider "low poly gun" as the term people will search for.

Maybe you just need more eyeballs on your product pages. Are you doing anything to promote your models? E.g. pinterest, any artist pages like behance/deviantart, twitter...

Another thing you could try - Have you thought about bundling up your weapons in a collection for a slightly lowered price? I think game asset packages usually sell better but I don't know if that applies to weapon packages.

Keep us updated how it goes!

Well, I don't have an appropriate amount of various guns to sell it as a collection. I'm also expiriencing some fog with social media product relations, because I don't have any concept of how this would work. However, thx for a tip with a keywords, I'll give it a try and see what's going on.

I pin a lot on Pinterest, but it's hard to track the success. I changed my account to a business account and I can see the click-through rate now, so I know at least how many people from pinterest came to my product page. I don't know if they bought though, and given that it's not even a dozen link clicks on my most successful 3d model pins, I would guess they did not. Everything else (instagram, twitter, deviantart, behance) I have no way to track so far.

Quality models you got there. But the prices are heavily undercutted. I would sell those model for $50+. People thinks that those models are stolen or bad due to low pricing. My high priced models sells well

Interesting. If I see cheaper models of good quality I usually assume that the author is based in a country where living is cheap. Maybe I'm naive and too trusting :) But I agree that kryckeinc's models are quite low priced for the excellent quality.

Your plants are beautiful! Can't see anything I would consider high priced in your portfolio though.
