one day job, so 8-10 hours, minimum of $20 an hour for a decent dev so you’re easily looking at $180… if you want to pay peanuts then go find some monkeys ::)

really annoys me and I won’t check the demo, I am looking for specific layouts and the preview image gives me a glimpse of that, if you don’t use that prime space to show off the design then I move onto the next item

Not WP based but kashflow.com does this, it’s an invoice system which you can add payment buttons to the invoice and is emailed to the customer directly. It’s pretty easy to use and it’s saas so they handle all the updates.

Costs £16.99 a month (I think)

43 / 10 = 4.3×6 = 25.8 (what you receive)

25.8 /10 = 2.58

2.58×7 = 18.06

2.58×3 = 7.74

basic maths is all that is needed

Spot on SSF, more choice = sales spread more thinly

Version 18.0.0.209 is now available from the Flashplayer website which fixes all the major issues and isn’t on the “banned” list in Firefox.

From the gizmodo article:

And in fact, Mozilla’s Mark Schmidt says that once the “publicly known vulnerabilities” are fixed, Firefox will stop actively blocking Flash.

There was a major flash vulnerability found so I am guessing this was in regards to that to stop masses of people being affected by it. I updated my flash the same day but not everyone will have though.

Didn’t chrome go down this route around a month ago, so now the 2 biggest browsers are moving towards blocking flash.

Flash has it’s place but it’s overused when it doesn’t need to be, especially in advert based websites, when I visit my local newspapers website Firefox and chrome both crash due to the 15+ flash adverts, I am running 4GB RAM and that one website can use up nearly 1GB of the memory.

By blocking flash it should make developers use flash more wisely

I’m wondering if I should release my new item now or wait?
Release it as there are more buyers than ever but don’t just wait for sales, promote the item like crazy to help buyers find your item.
Gareth, I read all your points. They are very helpful. But, in this case, what if author’s don’t have time to market their items like crazy? We can do basic marketing but not a pro level marketing. It is envato who should bring buyers to every specific niches.

An elite author posted something I like at http://marketblog.envato.com/milestones/progression-studios-tops-1-million-in-sales-and-joins-the-power-elite/

He has a newsletter which buyers sign up too, to get the latest news for themes, send out a monthly newsletter with information about new themes and updates to old themes

It doesn’t take a lot of time to do “marketing”, the basics are just using social media to tell people what you have been upto..
