+1 a better usage of that space.

In any case things are basically getting worst and worst, if you do not get on the popular list in most cases your items dies or bring very poor income.

For example last year every new item that came pushed exposure to the old ones even if it did not sale as good. Now days new item don’t bring anything. Sales are just dropping, over saturation is starting to show. So the only way to survive is either to flood new items and pray to whomever you pray to hit one of them to most popular list or invest whole lot of time and money building a humangus multi demo tons of plugins theme and risk with it.

But this is a normal thing in any market the fittest survive. Every market is a victim to its buyers… when you reach top depends of the market size….

An example in a niche that’s quite wanted and there is one product it will go like crazy and if the market for that niche is big 3 of them will go but sooner or later it will fill up and it will start to decline…. not so much recurring sales.

On the other hand huge multi-purpose themes are there to stay but have there limit also and we are mostly there so every now and then a newcomer comes and kicks someone off and replaces it and that’s it.

So exposure can go as far as it can in a certain point it cannot work any more. And do keep in mind there are competitive markets on the rise out there that also take envatos peace of cake.

Golden age has past now its suffering time :P No more “just be creative” now its marketing, marketing and marketing. :) And nastier you get better it will be lol

Keep in mind that good support is extremely important, there are limits, but if the customer crosses it you still cannot go berserk on him… keep calm and try to politely politically manipulate your way out of the problem.

Cheers

The main problem is that top of the top make more and more money and the low and the middle do not. Majority of those that do not get on to the top list fade out eventually, which is logical, but lately that fading’s paste is a lot faster.

Overall it is overcrowded and competing is harder. Those new marketing stunts are being invented and reinvented without limitations it is going to be a pure madness.

Just did a ruff calculation on tf… by marketopia tf has average of daily sales jut over 300 000$ now that counts in complete tf not just wp.

I took a few mins and did a ruff calculation and come to the conclusion

total tf sales around: 2 121 000$ just the wp most popular list brings in around: 512 987$

that’s 25% :) Interesting stat’s 5% are just the top 5 :D:D:D
If that’s true, I’d say that doesn’t really make me feel comfortable…

do the calculations yourself you’ll see :) if marketopias daily tf sales are valid.

Agreed, just edit your post before moderators do, any political comment even if it is historical is not allowed.
