How long did they worked on it?

Keep’em coming , we need your thoughts!
Abilitiy to sorting a file by its sales , is the reason we see same items on the home page again and again.
Those “Dummies” Series…
What kind of a book calls its own readers “Dummies” ?
Just to give my dos centimos… which author has created the template makes no difference to me. I do see the same authors over and over again, who have really great projects, so purchases from them are likely due to the quality of their items, but I judge on the quality of the item, not the name of the author.
I don’t really bother that much with the star rating and the comments either. If it’s got one or two stars, then I’m going to be curious and check out the comments, but apart from that it makes no difference to me if the item has 4 stars or five stars.
A well laid out description does help… it’s good to know exactly what’s needed, what’s included and the like. It saves time and means I can get the most info in the shortest time. Although not really related to the item itself, I like when authors promote their other items or related items at the bottom of the description. That gives me a better idea of their work and allows me to check out potentially related items quickly and easily.
Price doesn’t really bother me too much. Everything is reasonably priced on the marketplaces, so if an item is $20 rather than $15 then that’s just the way it is. However, if I’m torn between a $15 item and a $20 item, and I only have $19.90 in my Envato account… I’ll go for the $15 one. If I want the $20 item then I have no problem in adding another $20 to my account.
The main thing that’s important to me is the functionality and the quality of the item. You can have a terrible description, rubbish preview video and boring thumbnail… I don’t care, it;s all about the item itself. How it looks, what features it has, how it sounds etc etc. The thing is, if the item does have a terrible thumbnail and preview image, then it’s unlikely I’ll watch the preview video or look at the live previews.
As the saying goes, time is money, and I don’t have the time to check through 1000 logo animations or 5000 pictures of business people shaking hands or 100 images of horses skydiving. I have to go on the thumbnail and the preview image that comes up when you hover over the thumbnail. Then, once those have got me to the item page I can have a look around.
When searching, I’ll usually narrow it down to a category, and then I’ll sort by sales. It’s just easier that way, as in theory, you should be getting a bunch of high quality items at the top. Yes, that misses out on the latest items that might be really good, but haven’t got any sales yet… but what can I do. If I have a decent budget or can;t find anything suitable then I’ll inevitably check out every single item to see if I can find what I need…. but I’ll still do the thumbnail and preview image ‘sweep’ first before I go into the item page. I usually scroll through the list and open any likely candidates in a new tab to look at once I’ve got a bunch of suitable candidates.And that’s about it really. Nothing groundbreaking there, but it gives another perspective. Cheers!
Thanks a lot.
