@Amigo You are right bro… but is it (convention rate mesure) possible when we can be te elite and get access to Google Analytics?

I sure do assume it’s possible because Elite authors get advance Google analytics insights as I discussed in detailed in my previous thread. Thing is it would make so much more sense to open this up to all authors, not just Elite.

I’ve experienced with Facebook ads, Google Adwords, YouTube Ads & BuySellAds but never spent huge amounts on either platforms.

My biggest problem with all my advertising campaigns is the fact that I have absolutely no way to track which (if any) of the campaigns led to sales.

I’ve opened this for discussion in the past since this really frustrates me: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/tracking-envato-sales-with-google-analytics/151011... if only we could get better insights and analytics into our sales, that would make a huge difference.

There are times when I advertise and simultaneously have a great week of sales. But is this connected to my campaigns? If it is, to which of them is it related?

But on the contrary I’ve had times when I advertised and so no difference at all in terms of sales. So what does this mean? Are ads not effective?
Bro. I thing we should not try all these ads at a single time. Now we should try one after another each week/month then we should see the effect on our sales..It may help us !!!

Sure buddy I’ve done that as well, but it still doesn’t matter.

If I can’t directly link between an ad and a sale = I can’t measure the success of the campaign.

The best term to use here conversion rate or goal success rate. I need to know that I’ve spent X amount on an advertising campaign, and as a direct result generated Y income. That’s the only possible way to measure the success of any ad for a digital item and it’s used throughout advertising industry.

So essentially, if I don’t have the ability to measure the conversation rate (how many people reached my item through an ad + made a purchase), then I don’t have any way to know if the campaign was a success or a waste of money.

So I’m adapting my way of thinking from “hey, this’ll do… I’ll just get it out there and hopefully I’ll make some sales from it” to “Right, is this going to sell? Is it good enough? Are there any similar clips out there and how does this compare? What would make people buy my clip rather than somebody else’s clip? Is there anything I can do to make it better, more useful?” etc etc.
If only more authors had this mindset.
I’m curious: if the would have, what then?
We’d have (more) products with better quality, better features, and better usability.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t see any reason to care about the overall improvement of quality on vh. Actually, it is better for me(and for you) that vh standarts are not so high.

I agree with you on one thing: too many similar templates in slideshow category. Actually it was the same with 3d extrusion logos a few years ago.

I see where you’re coming from and you make a valid point here, but I think that if the overall value and quality of the marketplace will increase that will drive more potential buyers to the platform. If most of the templates are basic and only some are great, buyers might not come as often. See what I mean?

And apart from that, I believe that competition is actually good for business and for your own growth and quality.

Take Pebble watch for example. They could have been crushed once the Apple watch was release, but instead the CEO said he embraced the competition since it drives awareness to the smart watch niece and as a results brings more buyers and – forces them to innovate and produce better products.

I have quite a bit of projects at $30 and higher that turned out to be more or less flops. Main reason being that there’s not a real DIRECT use for them. They really just look pretty, and don’t really have any specific functions.

So what i learned is that if i should decide to spend my energy into a bigger project, i have to make thorough research beforehand to know that people actually NEED this type of project, and more often than not these projects fall in the Broadcast category.

It is a lot harder to have a succesful item in Openers, and more often than not the projects from Openers that are succesful aren’t a cut above the others at all. You just have to get lucky really, or do something very unique that not a lot of authors can, so the category isn’t as saturated (i.e. character animations)

Very good points. And I think this connects to what SpaceStock said earlier: “Right, is this going to sell? Is it good enough? Are there any similar clips out there and how does this compare? What would make people buy my clip rather than somebody else’s clip? Is there anything I can do to make it better, more useful?” etc etc.”

If you’re creating a big item with the goal of selling it many times, you’ve got to think about functionality and usability for the end user. Does this item just look amazing (and as a result give me great satisfaction of my achievement) or does it actually provide incredible value for the buyer? (i.e. Pixity land)

And sometimes it’s a matter of luck / trends / etc, which are hard to predict ahead of time. You can have lot’s of success with a clean lower third project even though it’s been done many time before. Those things are really impossible to plan for, and that’s one of the reasons why creating multiple smaller items might be an interesting approach as well, because that way chances of hitting the jackpot with a trending item increase.
