1. Only 2 words: "Batch upload".
Nobody can compete with ****ers uploading in one day more models than average designer can model in 5 years. Especially if on marketplace is no pre-moderation of models.

2. Usually similar statistic fluctuations depends on realisation of search algorithms. We can place the top quality stuff here, but it can be pointless until marketing "geniuses" still playing and experimenting with search methods and with sorting of results. Yes, all it sounds like "conspiracy theories", but at least it's looks true.

Thanks to every body your cordial opinions and suggestions. But 0 sales for last 7 months is not it matter of hopeless.

Oh, ok then that is very unusual. Especially considering the number of models and the number of views your models seem to have overall. The only thing I could think of is that your categories are flooded with new models so frequently that your existing models fall out of search results which would impact views and sales. Especially I noticed many of your models belong to categories that have over 100 pages of results in some cases. If your primary or only source of views comes from search results here on CGtrader itself, then falling past page 2 in any category could result in a big drop in sales. It's hard to say for sure, but 7 months would be quite extreme.

I noticed that since beggining of the year, my model views fell down dramatically, almost to half amount compared to previous year. Strangely, this didn't correlate too much with the sales, as i still sell about the same, maybe slightly less - it's hard to judge precisely, as sales tends to fluctuate very much. Still, it would be interesting to know the reasons behind lower views, unlike the sales, those numbers were very stable over the years and only recently they went down significantly.

I would guess that perhaps whichever categories your models are in may have seen an increase of competing models since last year, pushing your views down. Interesting that it hasn't impacted sales very much. That could indicate your sales are coming form other sources outside of direct search results here on CGTrader. It's common to see a studio or prolific artist dump a ton of new models into a category all at once, which could impact trends for existing artists in the category.

Yes, you might be right, although it still seems rather strange to see such sudden and massive drop, especially since i havent uploaded anything for more than a year. Well, as long as the sales are more or less stable, i'm not too much concerned about that.

Since this month I noticed the same. Only views I have -- the views I made by myself (1st after publishing, 2nd after sharing link to LinkedIn and 3-rd probably when I checked model page next day). I think It's not due of competing... problem is somewhere else. However, I had good sales in 1st and second months... but when views and sales stops independently on number of freshly publishing models, I'm loosing any motivation to deal with CGtrader. Similar feelings and CGT system behavior was in the end of 2019, when model views and sales fell down despite of publishing new models every fucking day.

Sales trends will go up and down from month to month, depending on how many models you have online and how often you add new models. It's not uncommon to see sales go down after a really good month, for example, then pick up again the next month, etc. I highly recommend not to dwell too much on how good or bad you are doing at any particular day or week, but just keep creating new quality content based on your history of sales and, of course, based on the trends and analytics you see across the markets.

That said, if there truly is a problem with sales such as a dropoff of more than 75% of your average sales trend over the past few months, then it may warrant some deeper investigation on your part to see what could be going on that is outside of your control.

Just right. Uploading new models has been difficult for me, really hope I can do more

Your models look great, keep at it. Given the volume of models in that category, you'll probably need triple the number of models you currently have to make an impact but don't lose focus on the quality and just keep it up.

I hardly make sales too, though I fault myself for not making more models

I agree with iterateCGI. Especially regarding smartphones or typical, everyday household products.

I believe your items are competing in heavily overcrowded category and new uploads of the same type keep added at incredible rate.

Probably need to study and smartly use the analytics tool (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xI_HpXuPWms). How to use analytics tool gets covered towards the end of this video.

Whatever you do, just stop spending time on work that is already available multiple times.
For example those smart phones, there are just so many phone there. If you can get the 3D model out before a new phone gets to the consumers then you probably gonna earn something on it for a few months and then competing manufacturer percents new phone model, etc. etc. After that the phone becomes just another phone in a big pile of phones.

Cabinets, tables, chairs, beds, the same thing, just do not expect to sell any of that unless you trow everything in one big pack and give it away for 60 dollars or something.

Maybe consider repackage it as Unreal engine assets or something?
There is a growing community of architects using Unreal engine for VR visualization.
