Hey all! I have officially uploaded my submission: Mobi – App Promo Toolkit. Feels so good to finally submit the project after so many long days (and sleepless nights!)
It’s great to see how much value the buyers and community get out of a contest like this. There have really fantastic entries so far!

Points well made.
So in that case, perhaps this should be a global feature not only for newly released items but for any item in your portfolio whenever you’d like to make some sort of promotion.
But to summarize I guess you & DOGmotion are overall right about your points in the essence that this could potentially do more harm than good. Guess we’ll never know
Yes that’s true and a good point again. What you’re talking about is exactly what Derek Halpern from Social Triggers says in this post: Discounting is for dummies—here’s why.
And it’s also true what you said about Video Copilot… I usually wait for cyber monday or black friday to purchase their products. But there is quite a big difference here because VC product costs $100+ which is not the case with our templates that cost between $13-40. So giving a 10%-30% discount is just a small incentive to purchase quickly. It’s also great for all who have newsletter (like myself) who could send out a “72 hours sale” email. Perhaps it’s not the best strategy, but it’s one I’d like to have the option to explore.
You might be right, but I don’t completely agree with your statement. I do my absolute best to create top quality items but fact is that I’m still at the stage (like many others here) who don’t have a huge established portfolio which gets lots of exposure on a daily basis. And again, this brings me back to the idea of making this an opt-in feature only. Authors who don’t want to do it simply won’t, but those who do will have the option.
