They are useful to see if changes I made worked. Also if I’m in a slow period I can look at them and get an idea of when the next peak will start, or when I’ve hit a peak and will be entering a slower period.
I agree we could have some charts or graphs showing each weeks sales and each months sales, such as bar graphs. You could have different ones for dollar amounts and number of sales. Or simply one of those sales charts with a red arrow with weeks 1 through 52 along the bottom, and dollar amounts along the left side.
I wouldn’t have known to continue to do what I did in the middle of the month without the graphs. I wouldn’t have noticed the jump in sales and extras. I find these invaluable for that reason. I can see a direct link to my new discovery and increase in not only number of sales but extras. These graphs have allowed me to add over a thousand dollars a month to my income. This is why I posted this, so that others can see the value of them.
I know a certain percentage of my orders will be huge orders so I don’t think in terms of that. I know if I increase the number of sales that some will be huge orders so I want to simply see a jump in sales and I’ve hit on something that works for that.
I can literally control how many orders I get and speed them up or slow them down.
