For me this is the worst month since I started uploading items at ghraphicriver
Concept is : spiral + Fibonacci number + leaves + star + Structure of atom ( nucleus form ) + recycling + peace sign + home.8 leaves that turn around (here number 8 represents infinity) symbolize recycling and restoration (the Earth is able to restore and recycle different materials). Everything on our planet is naturally consistent and balanced (The spiral in the logo is twisted at 137.51° angle which is known as the golden angle). Since everything consists of atoms, the logo has the shape of atomic nucleus. The Earth is our home where we all long for peace; peace which shoud be treasured as well as our planet.
Now that is coool.. great concept here
I would say best method is to show unrated items on the Dashboard, where unrated items will still there until the user rate or dismiss the reminder message. Something similar to unread comments in Dashboard.
A popup alert may be too complex to do, one good thing may be to get an email with a REQUEST RATING button every time a user buys an item, you author click on that button and your buyer gets an email as a reminder to rate your product.
Most probably this will return with 1 star rating
Getting your email spammed with ratings requests is not a good idea
Deviantart is good. Pinterest is better. However every click through and sales count to the bottom line. Good to build a community around the products on deviant and get more followers. I recommend keep posting all your items there with your referral links. Use smaller preview images though. The long preview images don’t work as well. I see more click throughs when I started using smaller preview images.
Unfortunately Pinterest has disabled external links below the images, l pretty much have to tell everyone to go to the main one up the top.
I will still post new material there, but overall, Twitter seems to be the best one!
Pinterest didn’t disable external links, you can put your link in website field in item discription.
Deviant art has decent traffic, but I don’t think it will lead to more sales, because most of the users there are looking for free stuff.
Design is harder, you can create perfect logic, but you can’t create perfect design.
This is really an admirable achievement.. it true dreams can become reality with hard working and right selection of partners.. congrats to you and to your team
