I believe high quality and originality are the keys to success! My first VH project is the top seller among the “Awards Show” templates with 900+ sales! Why?

When it arrived on the market it was completely original and high quality. Even better, it filled a great need with virtually no competition at the time!

Now, there are better quality projects that have tried to duplicate the success. A few of them have even been “inspired” to the point of copyright infringement!

I created the template because I am a big fan of the Academy Awards, so in this case my personal interest was my resource for inspiration.

So, don’t follow trends or try to duplicate popular projects. Just create a project that YOU would want to buy and maybe a few hundred buyers will think it’s a great idea too!

QUALITY + ORIGINALITY = SUCCESS!!! ;)

I guess it’s time to upload a new project nobody can find. :(
You had me rolling on the floor for 2 minutes with that sentence.

Sometimes it helps to laugh through the pain! :D

My sales average 100 per month, approximately 3 sales per day. This month the average dropped drastically to 1.5 sales per day (50% decrease)! Now for the first time ever, I’ve had multiple days with no sales!

The last days many authors at videohive see their sales to dorp down… not because they are not creating new templates or because they dont have many items in their portfolios, but because of some changes of the dev team at search (or somewhere else…). I didnt see so far any answer from the staff, please look at this issue. Videohive is an important part of our income for many authors and we want to know.
+1 It cant be a coincidence. Since the new search was implemented sales dropped more than 50% (in my case) This is serious for both authors and buyers.

My average sales for 2013 was 100 per month, approximately 3 sales per day. Like robertojorge, my average has dropped to 1.5 sales per day (50% decrease). Are customers really finding projects more easily now? Is the sudden decrease in sales due to more competition with similar projects?

Thanks for the great advice! I have quite a few cinema-style promos in my portfolio with hundreds of sales. Please take a look, they are very popular! ;)

Josh, it’s time to think outside of the extruded flying logo my brother! Start experimenting with some of the concepts we discussed. Consider the “Guts & Glory” idea with individual elements that rotate and lock together to form a company logo and tagline. This may be easier to accomplish than the rotating letters we examined in the original. I’ll help you create some smoke and sparks to dress it up…it’ll be a best-seller!

Don’t stay up too late, see you tomorrow! ;)

Didn’t want to bother you during the holidays. But maybe Monday once I get this project turned around if you wouldn’t mind taking a look I should have a new version… not sure I like what its turning into or not…
I’ll gladly take a look when you’re ready. :)

Excellent work Josh—you’re on the right track!

I agree with the others, needs more ambient light, maybe some particles for atmosphere and flares to dress it up. It has good skin and bones—just needs some sexiness!

Take a look at the popular E3D projects and make a detailed list of what makes them so attractive.

We all agree that reviewers should provide more feedback, but they have hundreds of submissions to process in the queue and it seems projects are increasing in quality and complexity every day!

Please consider sending me your previews before submitting for review and I’ll gladly give constructive feedback. Consider it a “test screening” before submission.

You’re very close to success—hang in there my friend!!!

Can I send you my previews too ? :D:D

No problem! :)
