If you’re like me, you tend to over-analyze things. I remember the first time I did my taxes, and I realized my total income was less than the tax liability. I was shocked, but also relieved because I didn’t know that my income was less.
It’s a good thing we didn’t know about visibility sales because we were trying to avoid the subject altogether. I think it’s just that we don’t know about visibility sales – but that’s just the way it’s worked in the past. I think it could be that the people who bought the game have been completely unaware of the price tags we’re using, and that they either don’t know about the price tags or they know nothing about the price tags.
I think this is all pretty standard, though, and I suspect it happens all the time for you as well.
As we discussed above, visibility sales are very common in the gaming industry. In fact, a sale that was supposed to include all the items listed on the box, but only three of them were actually listed, was actually a visibility sale. The fact that people were buying all the items listed on the box but only three of them were actually listed is actually sort of a common occurrence.
The reason for this is that visibility sales are often tied to a specific item being available in all of your stores. For instance, if you had a large, premium item, and a sale that excluded it all but three stores, then it would be a visibility sale. In this particular case, a sale just called out the item and it was listed in all three stores.
Some visibility sales, such as the one we saw last week, are linked to a specific store, but we don’t really understand what it is that makes a specific store worth having as a visibility sale. We suspect it might be the store being featured in the sale, but we don’t know exactly why.
We can think of two reasons why a sales page might be listed in two or three stores. First, the sale may be a promotion for the store in question. Second, a sales page may have links to other sales pages that may not be listed in the specific store.
The second reason is more likely, as a sales page may be listing other products that are not available for sale in the specific store. It may be a separate page that has a separate “visibility sale” link.
It’s important to note that in this article I will be using the generic term “visibility” as shorthand for a specific sales page. In reality, visibility is very, very specific. Visibility is the percentage of people that can see a product or a page in a particular store. It’s not always 100%. It’s usually between 50% – 70% or maybe up to 100% depending on the store.
It may be a separate page that has a separate visibility sale link.
