All great points!
Wasn’t trying to put in a competing site just share an idea.
The key difference between the current bundle and a subscription is the opt-out nature of a subscription. It would seem that more money could be made by authors.
The thing I was thinking is that the subscription would be controlled by me from categories or authors that I follow. I’d still not have control over what I received and it would be up the authors to determine if they wanted to allow files to be part of it and at their price point (or percentage discount).
There’s some enjoyment in the idea of receiving a gift of sorts in my e-mail.
I’m also not for the current bundles as they really seem to devalue the authors work. I’m not suggesting lowering the rate to those levels.
I was just wondering if others were seeing the trend and if it had value for digital assets.
I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed a trend that’s been going on in digital and online consumer goods. Basically these types of businesses have been starting to use the subscription model.
My wife currently has a subscription to a cosmetics place and receives a box of items each month at her chosen price point. She doesn’t know the contents until she opens it and always feels like she’s gotten a good deal even if some of the items she’ll never use. Other examples include barkbox and digital comics.
I’ve been giving this model some though and decided I’d post it here on the forums as its a good model for what the authors on the Envato sites are doing as well. If each month I could pay $20 (or more) and get a bundle of digital goods in categories that interest me I’d more than likely enjoy that.
Currently [removed by mod] is offering a portal to allow digital authors of content to do just this model. You can check it out at [removed by mod]
Some people may say that I’m crazy for sharing the idea but I value the creators on the sites and wanted to really open a discussion and here what everyone would think.
I’m the king of A.D.D. secondary income. My main job provides for my life. Most of my secondary income is based on what I’m doing in the here and now. Including the marketplaces I tend to always have something going on related to ART or freelance opportunities.
I honestly like to Barter my skills for things I’m interested in.
I want to make sure that the correct license level is purchased for a project that I’m currently working on for my company.
I’ve created an in banner survey template which will use assets from here. The survey template will be dynamic in such that the questions within the survey will be different from usage-to-usage and controlled via code.
The actual survey banner itself is a fixed design and will be delivered on a bunch of websites based on the needs of the survey.
If I read the license right the standard license should be ok to use since I’m only creating a single item for my company even thought its dynamic.
Is this correct?
Thanks for all the responses. I actually want to remove it for now not because of sales but because I have something I need to/want to do with the file.
I have a few projects I’m working on for GraphicRiver which are much better.
Hoping someone can help me out. I have an item in my portfolio that I’d like to remove from the site and no longer offer for sale as it has never been purchased. I figure I can get more traction using the file in other ways.
How do I remove items?
I honestly think that the comments on items should have a resolution system in place that allows an author and the original commenter to mark that something has been resolved so ratings and comments can be removed or improved.
Its great that you shared your roadmap. First let me wish you good luck. The company I work with has gone through many of the same growth issues and separating code bases is a year long venture which leaves little time for any interface improvements. So I fully understand. Thank you again for being a great company and continuing to grow the community.
