Weekly Recap 5/13 - 5/19. Better Late then Never

This weeks review comes a bit late in the week due to real life getting in the way once again. But it was to wonderful a week not to do a write up. So here we go!

First and foremost this week I hit Goldcap! If you have been following I did a big write up on that already so I won't go into too much detail but needless to say it was the highlight of my week. To top it off, the day I hit it was my biggest sales day since I started tracking gold on a daily basis.

I got into the gem market pretty heavily and it has paid off. I am much more comfortable now with pricing and strategy for posting and resetting markets. I have had some great help from several members of the IRC channel and profits are up! I do have some heavy competition for one person in the gem market but I don't mind it so much. He is obviously a smart seller and knows what he is doing and I appreciate the challenge. I am not sure if he feels the same way about me but I think it makes it more interesting and I definitely respect him/her. I try not to be too big a jerk and I will back off at some point once I am happy with my numbers and let him/her have the market for the day. So far they still remain aggressive but as I said, it makes things interesting.

I also leveled up my tailor this week. Although he is still level 80 I am able to get out to the Silken Fields everyday and do my cool down. I have been making the crafted dreadful gear to get my last few skill points and have been trying to sell them.

Blacksmithing is still keeping steady. Some days are bigger than others but for the most part I can rely on at least 5000g on a bad day.

So I have been growing my business. Expanding into new markets and testing out some new strategies. I am investing heavily again, mostly in ghost iron to support my blacksmithing and JC sales and I am even getting a bit of a stock pile.

Stay tuned this week for some new posts I am working on. As I learn new things I like to share them with you so hopefully you can benefit as well. Good Luck all!
