SALES have PLUMMETED the past six days or so. WHAT is going on?
My industry, which is a form of online sales and marketing (biz op / make money online), just took a dive the past six days or so.

Another industry guy confirmed it, that everyone is hurting.

Traffic slowed, too.

No explanation.

Everything just went dead quiet. People stopped wanting to buy? Stopped wanting to spend money? People stopped thinking about how to get rich?

WTF is this?

Could be an astrological thing. Moon phases? I don't know. It's like the world just fucking STOPPED.

It's like did everyone get a memo, "Stop buying stuff online. Save your money."???

Perhaps real opportunities, a la president Trump, have reduced the level of desperation people feel?

What people don't y set stand is that when you make big cuts to government employees (anyone paid by the State), you simply pay them in other ways like welfare/ food stamps. Wouldn't you rather they have a job whose salary requires them to pay federal income tax back into the system instead of merely taking out of it?

I think you all nailed it.

Trump and other velocity-of-money factors.

It's incredible how the worldwide market, of which I have access, moves and slows on a dime with changes and events.

Christmas is always slow, but the first two and a half weeks of January were good and they were picking up. Then it just slowed to a dead stop the past five-six days.

Well I tend to help the economy out... but I am struggling to actually get out my driveway.

Why?

Amazing amounts of snow! We are spending a lot more time plowing and shoveling.

Seriously they have cancelled school twice and today the trash man said sorry no can do!


Yup does not fit the global warming thing but its either warming up to a balmy low 30s to dump snow OR we are in the negatives to low teens for a high.

I am not complaining I grew up primarily in Texas an I think this is just wonderful!

MMO is a tough racket, if your selling clickbank is really tough. so much free information out there today to compete with. plus people are more on gaurd for scams more then ever.


I used to do clickbank/adsense/cj.com and all the other shit until i moved onto physical products on ebay/amazon.

way easier, more consistent sales

My Clickbank sales are actually doing well, oddly enough. That's better better lately.

But yes people are on guard for scams.

Lately I've been talking about scams more, warning people about stuff, and all the negativity might be adding up mentally... typically I'm more positive and/or ignore certain scams, because you don't want to overload people with negativity.
