Ouch, sounds like they went for the shotgun method and simply weren’t able to move enough units to average out a success. The Christmas thing sounds a little strange. Reading the article it’s almost like they expected to sell more just because they produced more. They may have been opening up new sales channels but the article doesn’t make that clear.
Yeah, 70 on the backlist is a surprisingly high number.
I agree. Nice to see a well thought out and reasoned response to the Friday Project ‘debacle’. I, for one, hope Clare and Scott make a real go of the newly founded Friday Project, rather like the success story that is kudocities.com, which rose from the ashes of Fridaycities. The connection, here, of course, is they both had the same business disaster monger, Paul Carr, involved.
Thanks for your comment, Bill. It is interesting to note that Paul Carr left the business shortly before the trouble started.
