No improvement, really. February isn't the best month typically, but I'm already at 65% of last year.
I'm monitoring some other sites as reference for a different project, sites that are in my niche, and their sales are down.
I talk to the owners of brick and mortar stores in my niche and they're going gangbusters. There's fear about the November election driving sales, or so they think.
In the end, I have no idea. I can't send emails because, even though I have the email addresses of every customer for the last 4-5 years, the addresses are from orders, not from people voluntarily signing up for emails from me.
