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.

I still have a stack of cds from the last sale.

Yeah, now that I think about it, I do, too. Need to get familiar with those.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound!

    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
