36 sales so far. It’s not good but still better than November so far…
This can be easily achieved with some css:
It’s a Green Troll.
After 15 years of being a caffeine addict, I am now clean for the last 3 weeks!
So how do you propose search results would help with new files – I’ll tell you what most buyers do when doing a search “click sort by sales” same old authors, same old files get sales.
I meant “one by one”. If deep search filters added and accuracy of search really improved, we should see some improvements on sales trends (I mean at least a slight reduction of sales for weekly popular items). Then we ask them to care about home page exposure as well as variations on popular items display.
When it comes to new items, initial exposure needs to be equal – not necessarily needs to be increased (this is not possible too). However, when an item moves away from home page, here is what happens:
- Less than 5% of items moves into weekly top seller pageSo regardless of an item gains healthy initial exposure, since most of the items NOT belongs to top sellers, obviously search is the only hope for medium – low sellers. The more sophisticated the search system is, the buyers will start focusing there instead of Top sellers. All these efforts are too late anyway
- More than 95% of items depend only search!
A more advanced search system is the right way to go.
Worst thing is that I have checked the quality and originality of the latest themes and it really hits my nerves.
Awful situation. Seems the marketplace is over-saturated. And the point is that most of the themes are exactly the same. The blame for this is on us, the authors.
We have trained the customers to expect page builders, 1000 font options, tons of shortcodes and all the mumbo jumbo, and seems we have forgotten what design really is.
Regarding ThemeForest, I am quite dissatisfied on the way they handle things. They seem to have switched to Quantity over Quality, and although this might mean more revenue for them, this is going to have a negative overall impact in the long term.
Done. I also let envato support know about this beauty.
