I’ve also noticed recently a helluva lot of files come onto the market place that don’t seem to sell at all.
Good point. Hopefully the fine folks at VH will implement the 6-month rule where files are deleted if they do not sell. I actually think it should be 60 or 90 days actually. If a file hasn’t sold within a few weeks, chances are it’s not going to do very well.
As far as trends go, I’m looking forward to collecting more data over the coming months. Seems as though trends are completely author-specific, depending how often you upload new content and how effective you are at promoting your work.
Since I’m new here (just started creating projects for VH in November), I was hoping to get some insight from the longer tenured authors.
Obviously, due to the holidays, the 2nd half of December seems to be a bit slower in terms of sales, but I was wondering if sales pick back up in January?
I suppose most of the top authors here don’t see much of a dip throughout the year, but I was wondering if certain months seem to yield a higher volume of sales than others?
Has anyone noticed any sales trends over the course of the years?
So far December has been good, but as of today sales seem to be dropping off. Perhaps it’s just a glitch. There are still a few more days before many customers (and authors :)) ‘switch off’ for the holidays.
I noticed the same thing! Sales were really good up until today (Friday) and it looks like everyone is packing it in for the weekend. It will be interesting to see how next week fares, being the week before Christmas.
A couple of the Featured Authors I have seen in the 2 months I’ve been here have only a few items for sale & have not had any new files in months if not a year. So just real curious why the videohive team would select them…...
I was actually chosen after submitting my first 2 items for sale. The note I got from VideoHive was that they really liked my files, and made me the featured author for that week, and it was my 2nd week as a member. I guess sometimes it’s just luck of the draw!
Another quick though on the Holiday themed files… especially around Christmas time, when authors are submitting an insane amount of holiday themed content, would it be beneficial to set up a small section on the home page, solely for that holiday content?
It could be useful for buyers who come to VideoHive specifically to purchase those types of animations, and to separate them from the rest of the usual content that authors submit.
The section could be added or removed throughout certain times of the year, when there is an influx of themed content being submitted?
