Keep up the good work!
This bug is irritating. Like a gnat. >:\
time to chase down that next paw!
I don’t drink alcohol, but I drink tea like its going out of business. At the moment, the Pumpkin Spice Tea really puts me in an inspiring and happy mood.
Awesome story. Inspiring. I wish you success and many more sales.
I find the policy on quality a bit strange. Quality requirements have gone up on audio jungle and (I guess) theme forest as the sites have grown more successful. Why wouldn’t you increase quality requirements on graphic river as well?
I suppose one could argue there may be a correlation between the review time and the amount of flyers that are now hitting the market. Personally, I enjoy the recent review time as its been fast and quick, however, I can’t help but also notice the consequence or effect is many flyers that don’t appear as high quality as others are now in the market. There is a noticeable difference in technique and skill between flyers. It all could be just coincidence, but perhaps it isn’t. It would make sense that maybe the review time is so fast, because reviewers are not spending as much time on flyers as they have in the past. In turn, as more and more flyers hit the market at the speed everything is going, the flyer category is becoming even more saturated. It shouldn’t discourage anyone from designing though. It is just my opinion.
^^ Thanks guys. Time to chase down the next paw one sale at a time
this month my sales dropped 70% I can not believe my economy collapses
To be fair, upon looking at your portfolio, unless I missed something, your last design was approved in October and you only had one flyer that month and then for September you had four of five approved. There is nothing for November. It would be difficult to sustain sales if you don’t continue to maintain consistency with flyer submissions in such a saturated and competitive genre – Flyers. I don’t believe this has anything to do with your flyers not being any good, as you have a nice portfolio, but even top selling authors such as SevenStyles has seen in a drop in sales and you can argue that perhaps it is because the amount of submissions by that particular author isn’t nearly as much as in the past where maybe the market was less saturated. I only use this as an example to demonstrate a correlation between consistent marketplace participation or simply relying on a portfolio as it is in dependence of repeat customers, word of mouth, or referrals. I believe if you continue to try to develop fresh ideas and submit flyers then, perhaps, you can at least continue to get yourself exposed and allow others to venture into your portfolio and see your other work. Since your last flyer was in October, you are missing good opportunities to provide Holiday themed flyers that you now see people submitting. The Flyers genre is competitive and new authors continue to participate as old ones try to maintain a hold on their current ranking, so it’s all about not giving up (in my opinion). I hope to encourage you to not give up and try to push forward. Good luck my friend.
time to get that next paw!! go get it!
That is how I wish it would have appeared on my screen when I logged in, similar to unlocking trophies on PS3 . Regardless, I am very thankful for the support given to me by everyone at Envato, the buyers, and my peers. Thank you all.
