The sales will become very low month after month. GR is huge and without a real organic exposure / activity selling here is now waste of time and effort. There are many opportunities out there. They should remove the exclusivity rule in order to keep the designers here. Selling in huge deals / bundles is the new trend Envato should learn from competitors and allow bundling between authors. This is what buyers looking for.
SomethingDesign saidAre you talking about sharing links on your facebook page or a Facebook ad campaign?
One month passed without Facebook items promotions and THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!!!
Sharing links on my page and groups. Practically from 1 month I delete all Facebook links from all accounts I have
We are to many the days with very good sales are history here.
chrisakelley saidWe use FB ads on a huge scale and while we have heard about these issues before most of our campaigns (which are highly targeted and researched) maintain excellent levels of conversion and results.
I’m curious how a specifically targeted campaign would do. Both the campaigns he used as an example seems really broad. Theres got to be a percentage of fake vs real likes. Im guessing the broader market your targeting the less conversion you’re going to get.
You are absolutely right that the test ones were overly broad which increases the chance of less scrupulous people seeing the ads but also they are stupid pages as opposed to properly run ones.
I do not doubt for one second that this goes on and Facebook have admitted that organic reach is diminishing to allow more targeted, personalized and effective advertising but there is NO way that Facebook would risk their most lucrative income by ignoring it and I maintain that correctly managed campaigns will reap the results.
@SomethingDesign – good luck with your trial and let us know what happens (maybe month on month?).
sure I will post my conclusions here
I start the test. I deactivated my account. I delete all the links on my profiles. So no more Facebook for 3 months. I bet nothing will change but we will see.
