    Busiest Time of the Week

    What is your busiest time of the week for receiving new orders? Yesterday and today have been pretty good for me, but my business is very new.

    I think every business has their good and bad days of the week. Alot really depends what kind of business you are running. For some they rely on the weekends to make up for their slow week days. Interesting thread, I love it

    Usually Monday is pretty busy for us catching up from the weekend, although not really a weekend compared to North American standards of having 2 days in a week off

    I was going to say Monday, but after yesterday I am now going to say Sunday's... most of our ad's normally go out on a Friday night so orders normally do relate to them.

    Yes, our new sign ups have dropped off a bit in the last few weeks.

    I was thinking that earlier as well, but then we got 3 signups in the last 2 hours... it's really odd sometimes.

    It really depends on the type of customers that you target.
    We work towards SMB's and the busiest days are mondays and tuesdays. The busiest times are 10-11h and 13-15h.

    Hope this helps.

    between saturday and monday - middle of the week can become very quiet while on the weekend and beginning of the week makes up for the rest.
