Well first would be to get a blog, twitter, etc
DeviantArt is a really good one but if you new to it and you only going to put up GR stuff it is probably a waste of time as people are not really interested in it, and they get poor page view compared to other files but as i had built up my traffic to my DA before starting on here it has helped me alot and i tend to get 40 visits to each item a day for DA
only really way to get amazing traffic is to create amazing items that people will want to visit!
One of the best factors for traffic is also your key words if the are relevant and spelt right will help you a lot.
You’re quite aggressive man. Don’t you think that’s a little rude to say like that. It’s all up to authors what and where they want to sell their items. (no offense) Now as for the topic of this thread, I would really doubt if GR would try to do anything like this. The point is: Will making a new marketplace for vectors would help them getting more sales?
Sorry man i re worded it to be less aggressive, than my first try.don’t want to offend any one, but if you are take a long hard think and ask youself are you on this site to make money or to produce art that you personally like which does not puts clients needs/wants in mind!
Gr are only going to do things that make them money as vectors don’t sell very well, so spending money setting up on there own site would not really work.
well at least 90% of them don’t any way at it harms the market place having it full of things with no sales. It makes it hard for user to find relevant things to there search if they have to go through all the vectors which may cause them to leave
This site is for making money so people want to upload a few high quality items that sell well, the best example of this is “webtreats” very few items but pretty much highest sales on GR
whereas some vector people upload huge amount of items for very few sales.
I think unless the vector issues is addressed in say a year it will be out of control and could have huge impacts on the site will neely all items being vector
on the other hand there are a few vector artist that produce truly amazing work, they should not be put off!
You’re right, the safe zone should be smaller. My apologies for that. The updated version, with correct safezone: Update
Amazing stuff i have it noe, it was the only thing putting me off creating a bossiness card as i am from an internet background!
I guess the middle 90% is for text content,
the next box is the text safety box
and the last is the bleed
Many thanks for tanking the time to create the template
To help you out here’s a business card template in psd format. Just an empty PSD with the right dimensions etc, including bleed lines (and text safety lines, but these don’t listen as narrow – just my personal preference):
I just downloaded this and the bleed marks seem really big or it just me?
A very similar thread has been started just last week link bellow
The fact that there is very little to no need for 90% of the vector made on the site is the issue i would be up for them leaving graphics river as they just clog it up and make it hard for people top find thing they might actually buy!
don’t want to offend all you people that make vector but if you one of those people that upload 40 vector for every 1 sale you get Please stop!
But i do think the vector are blocking up this site as so many of them have no sale
I think the vectors piggy back of the popularirty of graphics river as by them self they dont sell that well, well some do but the majority have no sales!
If they made a site for it i don’t think it will do so well so it not really in envatos interest!
I must say from all my experience on the site i have never had any issues with any reviewers,
i have only ever had one item rejected and it was simply because i had rushed and not put enough thought into the item
I never did said the advantage of having reviewer being authors, which is they have a good level of skill and are in a good position to decide the quality of items.
I don’t think that the reviewers would try to take advantage of their position here on GraphicRiver – The amount of money an author/reviewer makes from selling his items I guess it is pretty low side-by-side with his reviewer salary. And yes, he has access to all your files and he looks at how are the files made – but did you see a reviewer that has a file similar with one of yours ?
I’m just talking in GraphicRiver’s case – I don’t know all the reviewers from other marketplaces and neither their files.Later edit : If he/she did wanna trick us in one way or another – He/She could easily make another user and upload items in there ( his brother, girlfriend, boyfriend, etc. ) and I bet that neither one of us will notice that.
I am not saying it is happening but with the system as it is at the moment the possibly is there, if you had independent reviewers then this would not happen
They have a massive advantage over us normal authors i will explain below.
The reviewer has the advantage of look at many people files they can see how the file are constructed and learn peoples tricks for making thinks! then use these thrick to make impressive work
also they can copy layer styles other bit of the work modify them and include them in another peace of work!
I am not saying people are doing this it just is if would be the most fair to everyone if the review were independent and were not authors
I do think there are changes for foul play, an example below
Reviewer has a business cards they sell
they then review file come across a business card that is better than theirs, and decide to reject it!
very crude example but that sort of thing is possible, but unlikely
but in my option i think reviews should be completely independent and not sell files, but thats just my thoughts!
