Sales hit the ground
4 months ago I had approximately 1 sale a 3 days. Now I have 1 a 3 weeks if I'm lucky. I thought of possible reasons such as : site growth (models, buyers and artists), difficulty finding my models, models in-demand category change (I'm mostly 3d print models, maybe now AR/VR is more popular), sudden realisation by buyers that I have no talent, and being jinxed because I walked under a ladder.
I must say I also took a 3 month break from modeling and uploading models here, the whole summer, and now sales are zero.
Anyone has experienced the same?
Hi, sales decreased everywhere. Not only here, even on Turbosquid and 3Docean. How long have you been on CGTrader?
Yes, I notice that too last weeks, although I had a fantastic August with 34 sales, I thought fall period will even be better, but September was a sudden decrease - 18 sales. I wouldn't say that sales decreased everywhere because this month I have already 3 times better sales on Turbosquid than here, even though I have a lot of models still with higher prices on TS because they didn't reduce them yet.
Lol I'm happy when I have 4 sales a month x)
i have stable sales for the last 3 month, and yes still nothing to this day
If you ask me, the whole system is wrong. There is a huge devaluation of the work in place.. not only here but in the world... I had to quit all promotional initiatives and Sale offs. You find yourself paying a lot of fees only to receive money (via PayPal).
It's ridiculous and somewhat wrong to find (for example) detailed models of cars sold under 100$. It means you work almost free. I do woodworking jobs now and then and it usually pays much much more (per-hour). Doing something by passion should not become a reason to devalue work. Without considering the enormous damage that this is determining on a global level. What I'm saying is that we should stop for a moment and ask ourselves where we are going to end up with this trend.
In the immediate future, I will probably focus on developing my personal website to sell my models to a lower price for the final user and set up a payment method to avoid any fees.
I hope they will not reduce
