Thanks for all the encouraging words. The data I'm using aren't the best for determining such things, but I don't have access to the best data, so one does one's best.
I wonder how much the top 10 list changes daily though. Since the emails are weekly, if there's a lot of day to day variation, then the weekly snapshots could be only 1/7th of the dataset. One way to check this would be to look at the top 10 list daily for a few weeks and see how much things change.
I'm assuming that the weekly list is the total over the whole week, rather than the daily snapshot for that particular day.
Is there a daily list? I don't recall seeing one.
Regardless, a better way to do it IMHO.
Public money and customer data is out there for ALL Kickstarters. Just go look at who has the most backers that tells you who has the most customers.
That's an alternate way of doing it. I'm not convinced it's better.
But if you dont' think the biggest sellers are Frog God Game and Kobold Press your crazy.
I'm crazy! Crazy!
Now annalyze the data from drivethrurpg and similar services... that could give an insight on the profile of shoppers here and there.
Is that data easily available?
...and I notice it only goes back to October 2014...
If I had earlier data, I'd use it. If someone found it for me, I'd incorporate it. [I've tried to find it, and failed.]
