See dude? Even top authors are telling you pretty much the same thing. I don’t usually like to follow up on what others say, but they make a good point. Why design an HTML style template when hardly anyone looking for a flash template has an interest in it. WickedPixel has a good point too, about the content looking too complicated to manage. Plus, you didn’t even do deeplinking on that template. Now-a-days customers won’t buy a template that doesn’t have that function. At least you could have added that, and if you can’t because of your coding skills, I suggest you learn it. Otherwise, even with templates on the level of P&K, your templates won’t do well with sales without deeplinking.
As I see it, after looking at your current portfolio, you need to work on aesthetics badly. Also, try designing something that customers would actually LIKE . You have talent and your files show that. You just need to design things that are more useful. Your files are either plainly useless to most people, or they simply don’t have what customers need. I’m sure that other people’s customers could tell you that.
I can’t explain it, but most customers are looking for templates that support YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, Vimeo, Social Networking, and other forms of external source web development. They also need things that are innovative. Frankly, your designs lack that for the most part. I’m not saying you suck at developing, but you would do well to consider things like file rating, and the other things I already listed that customers would like. Give it a shot Aw_Shucks.
So what are you going to do? Give up? You’re not hurting anyone but yourself if you do that. And you’re not giving your customers enough credit if you don’t stand by the files with confidence. Its like you’re saying your files suck, but that just shows that you believe you’re selling crappy files. Customers might find that insulting.
Aw_Shucks, your portfolio doesn’t have friends because you keep abandoning your files. If you’d stick with it you’d notice how you would benefit from it.
Thank you. I try very hard to make it that way. You know, you’re the first person to have noticed that. It makes me want to drink some juice. Nope, ... that’s just thirst. Haha.
Just thought you’d share your thoughts along with all these other depressing statements, huh? You might have taken it too far though dude. I care. I mean, look at MY portfolio. With all the invisible items in there, you can definitely tell that I’m trying hard.
Thanks. ... Uh, I mean… Its Shucks’s Birthday!! Darn it.
I don’t think many of you know, but today is the burfday of Aw_Shucks. Lets all wish him a Happy Burfday.
P.S. I’m not Aw_Shucks. I’m seefooddiet!
