BrandBucket sent out their September sellers newsletter today. Michael Krell reported that individual sales have increased by 250% year over year. The significant growth has been fueled by several factors including a continuing effort to reach out and spend marketing dollars on startup community.
The nice thing about the seller newsletter is we get a breakdown of sales data.
We had another very strong month of sales on the heels of one of our best sales months in July. Over the last 5 months, keyword sales have slowly increased and monthly sales are now pretty evenly split, but in August, keyword names definitely dominated the sales chart. This appears to be an outlier as our initial sales in September are a 50/50 split. This increase in keyword sales has closely mirrored our increase in keyword names being listed in the marketplace.
