Are those sales reversals are genuine or just another way of income for Envato? Just kidding!
Being a designer costs to observe everything – even if it is unnecessary! That’s what the secret behind any good / professional designer – differentiates from others. The success rate depends on how you balance the context of observation and practice while optimizing your time spent on needed areas.
^ Recommendations can be displayed in the Downloads page – in the side column. But this needs the system to be sufficiently sensitive about relation between items. Again it leads to having a more accurate search system as an initiative
This is why a perfect 5* is practically unachievable. Regardless of item’s fitness, always there are fraction of buyers who expects out of context features. Angry buyers wont calculate things and just click the lowest possible star. That’s why most of the product based stores display the ratings breakdown so that a buyer can see more data than average. The average is unsafe due to angry buyers, while the breakdown display (as recently implemented) helps expose the the big picture.
This is why the marketing people gets low respect among others globally. Trying too much to force customers towards one side and reaching a level where all the technical excellence becoming questionable unnecessarily.
In the process of making buyers return in the future, the scheme supposed to not loss the self respect. For a $20 deposit system, a $15 bundle can work better than 19. (unless the overall aim is just trying to get profit out of ignored $1 deposit balances through the bunch of mini bundles in the future)
VF saidhey sry for late reply VF, after a couple of days of thinking, I feel the bundles are not a good thing right now. We’re still in the moment where all of this selling digital goods, is new, and so there’s no need to discount something wich is selling out since only 4 years, and is coming out right now, I think it can be done much much later. Like clothes…
Overall, the bundles supposed to be made in such a way to pull new buyers with easy transaction but the opposite happens right now: Make current buyers to deposit 1 extra dollar.
Bundles can be harmless as long as we have guaranteed search enhancements made in reasonable intervals – for regular items. Secondly the way the bundles being sketched right now is a shame for the community. I am surprised none of the authors here questions about the shady $19 attempt. For me it is an obvious insult towards any buyer with current payment system.
Only 14 files managed to make more than 3 sales this week. I doubt if total marketplace sales managed to cross 100 this week! Still more than 3DOcean though!
