I wouldnt say going out of business but sales certainly arent as good as they were before the int'l shipping rates went up which is why I have to run these type of sales every so often.

 

Also , why I haven't been able to release as much product this year.

 

I hope to re-print some of the older stuff soon.

I hate to hear that. Word from the inside says that USPS could very well go belly up. The government owes them money so they won't bail them out. Going to get worse I'd say...

Good to hear that mate. While waiting that, another recommendation is extreme discount for international customers to compensate the expensive shipment price, especially for older stuffs that didn't sell so well just to liquidate stocks to cash to invest in the newer bands.

I agree Nightrain - I think my shipping prices are still reasonable considering - BUT I will have to do a free shipping thing sometime and see what happens. And believe me - EVERY sale counts my friends!

 

Yeah, the shipping wasn't too bad. I ordered 3 cds and $10 shipping isn't too bad compared to what some others charge these days for international shipping.

look at Amazon - jumped from $6.89 to $14.29 for international customers - who the hell is gonna buy cd's at that rate? CD buying is already in decline and that just makes it ridiculous.

 

I absolutely agree. I don't buy CD's from Amazon.com anymore because of these outrageous shipping cost. :(

How did the digital download thing work out, Sam ? Was it worth the effort ?

:agree:

 

Recent increases in shipping prices are ridiculous and have really damaged international sales. It's inexplicable - postal traffic must be higher than eer with the rise of eBay and Amazon, so why price people out of it? With more and more online sales and less and less High Street business, surely you'd want some of that action?

 

Some of the postage costs from private eBay sellers in the US are prohibitively high for me as a buyer and I'm sure it's not the sellers' fault at all. The same has happened in the UK, many prices have gone up around 50% in the last year. What is wrong with these people? I'll be using couriers more and more for sending packages within the UK, as the Royal Mail prices have gone through the roof.

I still get a lot out out of country sales but its for out of print items. I have lost sales as well. Like I said before, Ebay forces registered shipping basically. It's $25 to ship ONE cd international with tracking. Insane...

If anyone says International sales aren't down then they are living in a dreamworld. Stats prove it. My Amazon sales used to be about 40% international buyers and now I MIGHT see 2 to 5 out of 100 being Int'l customers.

 

Since I haven't been on ebay since 2009 I don't know how that has affected auctions / buy-it-now sales but I can imagine it's pretty pathetic too.

 

I'm not gonna throw out exact numbers but all I will tell you is this....between 2002 and 2009 I was raking in WELL into 6 figures a year. Now I'm not even making 6 figures or anywhere near it in 2013. Hence the reason why I can't release the product I used to.

 

This government is trying to destroy online business...PERIOD. Bush kinda started it but Obama is finishing it.

    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).
    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position.

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.
