True we can say that Elite Authors are super human, and have a polished crystal ball or Harry Potter magic wand on stanby; But maybe they have just learned how to do flyers at high speed?

Just thought that l would throw that idea in this discussion?

:sunglasses:
They do actually, maybe not all of them but some authors have everything ready from the beginning :)

Yes, far better to look at this marketplace from a Henry Ford perspective than a struggling artist!

:sunglasses:

In that perspective Henry Ford is losing sales and struggling artists have none, overall market is falling down for everyone… :(

What do you guys suggest we do ? Put our time somewhere else ? Because obviously this is not worth it anymore… I’m tired of creating new things if those things get no traction whatsoever. It doesn’t motivate us one little bit. :tired:

I stopped making items for a while because of exams and exactly after my exams these DDOS attacks started and then market sales down… now i have 0 motivation to work at all right now, let alone try to upload some premade works i know how you feel :(

Back when I became an author, there were no tracks called “Inspiration” :)

It’s a general thing. I used to sell 300-400 items a month, but now it’s falling drastically. I see that there are many popular authors with that same problem. I think there is something with Envato’s SEO that makes files pretty invisible. My other explanation would be that people don’t have $ to buy as much as before. Also people are drawn more and more to other marketplaces, like creative market, (who I don’t like at all, all the people working there are uptight hipster jerks, and I’ve closed my account there), but they have a great user interface for browsing and purchasing. Also their upload frontend is soooo much better and easier. GR looks/works pretty much the same for years. I mean if I was making millions with a marketplace, I would definitely see what’s that my competitors have better and I’d top it. But that’s only me… Long story short – The sales are dropping like birds in Hiroshima. Good luck ya’ll…

+1 Everyone seems to be losing sales, even though i am not a regular author right now but i can still see my sales graph had a regular pattern which is currently not even a pattern lol, tried making new items but no luck here…

I just wish Envato could help us gain an insight on this problem as we’re both pretty much losing money here we should try to find out why and fix it, I like this place a lot more than the other one because of all the people and known authors here, they might seem a fine community too but in the end i’m too lazy to manage both so i’m sticking with one. :grin:

And hopefully that decision won’t change :(

Could we be a little more transparent and provide a few more details please?

The article in the knowledge base also isn’t helpful in giving more details.

Can we just say Themes with X stay the same, Themes with Y increased $3 or whatever?
