It’s The Time of The Year Again

I notice the sales of my products is starting to bounce back which allow me to breathe a sigh of relief after a disappointing past few months.

My best months usually occur in November and December and I guess the circle is starting again. Good for me then 🙂 My slow months usually occurs during the summer months of Jun and July.

The Holiday season is around the corner and people are ramping up their effort trying to capture a piece of the holiday shopping demand. As for me, what I plan to do is offer some kind of discount or coupons for my products during this holiday season to see how that will improve the number even more.

Incidentally a few days ago Linkshare sent out a good reminder in their affiliate newsletter about important dates around the holiday season. Here are snippets from that email:

I Am Still Here But…

One of my readers emailed me the other day asking how I’ve been doing and if there’s any updates coming up soon.

I guess I share some news here for those who have been wondering if I am still alive or not LOL.

If you’ve followed my earlier posts, I am in the midst of helping my parent renovating their house. This past few weeks have been especially hectic since the deadline is fast approaching. What deadline? Well someone in my family is getting married; and no it’s not me LOL.

Anyway, I’ve been spending less time online lately and I feel I’ve missed a lot of happenings online.

I know, I could’ve used the late nights to blog but as I said before, I find it’s harder to get into the right frame of mind when I’ve been all over the place during the day checking out the contractor, traveling to KK looking for building materials, managing budget etc.
