My sales have been very slow recently. Is August a slow month? I opened my shop at the end of August last year so it is the first summer for me.

I also opened in summer of last year so I have nothing to compare with. But august has been very slow for me so far......

I only had 14 sales so far in august, so for me it's a slow month...
But this month is just started and I last year in summer I had no shop, so I have nothing to compare with.
I am sure that if you keep up with the hard work, it will pay off!
If not in august, don't forget Christmas is just around the corner, and having a shop filled will be a blessing!

August is already starting off way better than July did for me. My views have been moderate to high (for me) and I have already sold the same amount of items that I sold for the entire month of July. I don't have last year to compare it to either. My shop only got serious last September.
