A sale here too: from Glasgow, but not one which was zoomed yesterday. Netted me >50% of September's total, though!

 

:D Smiles all round.

I had two yesterday, too, for good prices. Must have been the day for us North of the border.

Another sale popped in overnight, this time one of my 'lone zooms' from that Glasgow batch. Different buyer, as suspected.

However, now almost at my September total, and only the 5th.

Onwards and upwards!

A nice sale of $188 popped in this evening making October a very pleasant change from the small beer I've been getting lately and like you say, it's only the 6th. :)

That moment when you check and see two new sales, smile when you see nice prices, then realise there's a little minus next to it. My two Glasgow sales were both refunded. :(

Good news - a $204 lease popped in today

 

Not so good news - it's a distributor sale, but still a reasonable return.

 

Not seen any 3 fig sales for a while....

That is good news and support for not opting out of distribution. 

 

I had a $200 marketing package (direct sale) one appear a couple of days ago. They're scarcer than they used to be but still out there...

Agree John, the net income from my distributor sales is generally a good deal more rewarding than that from the newspaper scheme, and blows some recent NU sales out of the water. I may withdraw from NU this coming year. Trick is to remember to do it when the time comes!

 

Good to see occasional straight $200 leases still to be had.

Yes, I'd be shooting myself in the foot -- and I only have one foot left metaphorically speaking -- if I opted out of distribution.

 

The recent $$$ sale that I mentioned was actually $199.99, so I took the liberty of rounding up. B)

 

I kicked the NU habit a long time ago. :D

It must be lucky distributor sale month. I see that I have a $250 distributor invoiced today.

 

That commission really hurts (ouch!). Still it's good to see some healthy numbers.

I must be getting increasingly pessimistic (a certainty, actually) 'cos I'm failing to see the positive in this! :unsure:

Paste this link using the "insert other media" and "insert image from URL" functions.

P.S. replacing "comp" with "zooms" in the URL above will give you a smaller image
