Why not a weekly “Featured Collection” with many items inside curated by staff, but instead of leading to a regular Collections page with thumbnails it would show full sized preview image instead. Anyway, It’s easy to come up with ideas, not so easy to see them implemented…
I understand, but I’m just trying to think realistically… your screenshot on the first page shows that envato feels the need to advertise the #1 selling theme on themeforest… plus the envatostudio banner still exists disrupting search pages… plus http://envatomarketplaces.com/ features the same items for ages now… it all shows that proper author exposure isn’t a priority, right? So if envato is going to use that after-purchase page to push top sellers, I’d rather have them display recent “Featured Items” from every marketplace.
That said, yes better author exposure would be great, but how?... I don’t know, but some big stock marketplaces seem to have better and more intensive curating… so why not expand the featured items section… or have staff organize collections (as it sometimes happens) of many items within a theme/keyword from different authors, and then properly make buyers aware of them…
Why would the buyer need to see related items if he’s already made his purchase? It’s like telling him he didn’t spend enough time doing his search, present him with a limited choice of files that have similar keywords, and then hope for the best…
If you look at http://envatomarketplaces.com/ it features one item from each marketplace… a solution like that could be placed on the after-purchase screen, showcasing one recent, randomized “Featured Item” from each marketplace. Not ideal, but I think better than just throwing around stuff because it has the same tag words.
But even those featured files on http://envatomarketplaces.com/ have been the same for I don’t even know how long, so it seems proper exposure of authors isn’t a priority.
Video previews working fine for me on Windows… Firefox, IE and Chrome.
Agreed! Most obvious solution should be automatically displaying the most recent Featured File of each marketplace (which is done weekly).
Hey, I think your thread suggesting authors use new/different audio tracks on videohive templates was locked by mistake. I have to say that the first time my eyes glanced your title I read “new” as “mine” which seemed like another self promotion thread. I guess the staff member that locked it made the same mistake, even though that doesn’t justify locking both threads.
That said, future insights from buyers like you are most welcome. Cheers
Hm, no staff reply yet. bilalmarri, please share if you were allowed to use the h.264 after all.
Have you tried encoding in h.264 instead of Photo JPEG? That will drop the file size considerably while keeping a nice image quality.
The great summer void is upon us.
