Something I noticed on some of my items:
When I check out my 4.5-5 star rated items, there is a single buyer who rated 1 or 2 stars and I ask myself why do I need to suffer this low rating because a total noob purchased one of my items and had no clue how to edit it eventhough it’s 100% simple and organized and didn’t even bother to ask for help. Just shows that there are people with zero (0) knowledge in photoshop that I prefer they stay out of my portfolio. Just ain’t worth the purchase.
This can hurt sales especially for items with only few ratings (+3), for example:
Yes, that’s what I figured. But I invite all buyers – noobs and pros. We just need more voters which will balance out the stars in our favor. One of my top item which have sold over 40 times have never been rated. Also got contacted by buyer who said my psd file was not editable – I checked file and it was editable – I had to turn all text layers off and send to buyer – they only wanted the background – I would expect a 1 star from that buyer or 2 for good support .
I do hope Envato implements the email reminder to vote soon, as promised.
This is what I think will make a difference – some people are too busy to waste time rating – maybe got better things to do, I guess. If they get a friendly reminder in their email inbox – I think that will work wonders and will equal out the noobs vs pros. voting balance.
I was taught Quark in school and used it up until i got my hand on Indesign – never looked back – didn’t take any classes for Indesign but the program is intuitive and was easy to learn with my Quark background, works well with the rest of the Adobe Suite, has more powerful features that Quark is now implementing but still not good enough. It’s just the perfect Page Layout program –
Very good updates – going the direction I was thinking – namely the email reminder.
Congrats and many more to you
The problem with the word professional is that it is subjective. Something can look professional to you and not to someone else. This is why thy want you to use objective words in your title only because, they factually describe your product – “red table” can only be used to describe a red table and not a green car. Objective descriptions are not influenced by personal feelings but are based on facts. Subjective words on the other hand, can be influenced by personal feeling and may not be factual.
Your file can actually be professional but because of the subjective nature of the description, they do not want us to use it or any other such descriptive words.
Some cool centered templates:
Congrats – many sales 2 U
The problem is not with centered files. The fact is that a lot of centered files are on the marketplace already. Because of this – any new centered files must be done very well – better than those before. In order to keep the value of the marketplace relevant and creative we the authors must find new layout constructs.
The center of the flyer etc does not have to be the focal point. Bottom, Top, Left and Right can also be focal points – you just gotta work it.
iNvatoo Pro is great – multi language account balance – list of last items sold – account balance – monthly sales graph – shows your avatar – current commission rate – number of followers – however, no sound for sales (good for me)
