For the niches you mention you have quite a few different themes.
However as it was mentioned, it just does not sell, there are few shiny examples that do sell, but those are rare.
Agreed! Already commented on that thread. But as there the same applies here. so keep in mind as with HTML builders even if it is pure HTML, UX defines it. Same here this is wordpress and those are settings and demo importers etc. Its all wp, but usability defines it as something else.
I never was against banning, just adjust the pricing, but that does not mean by few $, Additional functionalities should have higher price. The price has to be set at the way so it enables healthy competition and variations if we do not were will this stop?
The category about which we speak is just one example. This trend has been unwrapping all over the marketplace.
There are many ways envato can make things much healthier. More categories, price changes etc.
In the end this is a market model for which envato decide but authors guide it towards a big and diverse marketplace and competition healthy or pumped up with same multi, build it unlimited, gazilion demos sites.
How you code it does not determine what it is. Even if it is pure HTML, UX defines were it belongs.
This kind and similar ventures all over the marketplace have been evolving and with it effectively killing everything else. To be honest there is nothing wrong with it all we have to either let it go and leave everything else to die off and let this new things dominate or balance things out. It just depends on what kind of marketplace we want.
Last 4-5 days were a total disaster
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that my sales are a disaster, but I have definitely been experiencing a big drop in the last few weeks (last one being the worst of them).Historically, November used to be one of my best months in terms of sales, but this year seems to be a different story, which worries me a bit. I just really hope that this downward trend doesn’t continue.
exactly, November was great always, but this year it seems everything is very weird.
Heh don’t know what, maybe ill give up on web (joke)
Yea well, the main question, what to do with all the existing ones?
This is a bit old thread but let me pitch in, can you imagine if software was developed to with few clicks export and make PSD files fully html ready for upload and PSD designers bundle them in for 10$.
I understand your view. The main point is to try and find a competitive edge, we do it also in wp themes. But does not make it right.
The only solution would be to make drastic pricing changes, since market has evolved so should the pricing structure.
- tons of demos with different layouts etc. wp pages: $148
- few demo showcases + woocommerce (not totally “different themes”) : $78
- no demos variations, niche themes: $48
- HTML with builders builders + multiple demos $28
- HTML withour builders etc. $16
This are just hypothetical prices but you get my point.
Yea that’s very cool! But what about the current ones? This means they have a huge advantage over all the future items.
That is actually a cool idea, or just raise the price hard, that would be the other drastic step.
I thought last months were bad, but since July things are going steeper down the hill, to be honest if after few new stuff we put on things do not pick up… I will most probably have to think hard to find some other solutions that most certainly will have to be outside envato.
Financially this is devastating for us.
