Each week, we’ll be tracking a snapshot of year-over-year distributor revenue with our Pandemic Revenue Index (PRI). We would like to increase the sample size and are asking you to consider helping the industry through these uncertain and unprecedented times. If you are interested, reach out to Mike Emerson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The sample size for the week of October 5-October 9 is 13 firms, the same as last week.
This week’s index shows a sales decrease of 0.4% versus the same week in 2019, which continues the pattern of relatively flat conditions that began in August.
Nine companies reported decreases with four of them being double digits. Of the four companies that saw increases, the range was from less than 13% to 35%, so there is still a fair amount of variance among the participants.
Thanks for following along with us as we analyze the impact of this pandemic. As we collect more experiences, we will continue to share patterns as they emerge.
