You need to target a very narrow audience willing to buy your items (scripts) so try to list your items on specialized sites like HotScripts and advertise there with premium listings.
Best way is to host your own e-mail service.
Avoid self hosting unless you want headaches. Setup can go smoothly but maintenance, blacklist unblocking, using old/blacklisted IP addresses – nothing but problems unless you have really good sysadmin to support this service.
damn firefox, other browsers too?
You can also notice that “License Certificate” link is not visible anymore because now you have to click on “Download” button. Some items require license certificate during install process and this may confuse users.
alcalbg saidThat is a clever idea, but even if that works, it would be just another way of knowing that someone has purchased your item, right? We would still not being able to know where did this customer (that did buy) come from.
I am testing this idea of putting campaign tracking code into item’s html documentation but I don’t have enough data yet to confirm that this could actually work.
My goal with this is to track conversions for promoted items. In other words to be able to see how many people buys your item when you are running paid ad campaign (AdWords or similar).
As far as I know conversions work like this:
- You setup an ad campaign for your item.
- Potential buyer see your ad and clicks on it. At this stage customer receives a tracking cookie.
- Customer decides to buy your product, make a purchase and download your item.
- When he opens html documentation tracking code is fired and because he has appropriate tracking cookie installed this is recorded as a conversion.
I’m not sure if you can see customer location in conversion analytics but if you have this conversion data you can see result of your paid marketing, adjust your ads, keywords and invest in something that is not a black-box.
Hi, I’m looking for something that would let me create galleries and albums…a little bit like nextgen…maybe a little better BUT I’d like the ability to have a downloadable zip file for example of all the images in an album. It would be perfect if I could upload a zip file with high res photos, the gallery would generate lower res for online and have a link to download the zip with all the high res…may be I ask too much;)
Maybe my gator item will fit you, it has zip/unzip, lightbox gallery, thumbnail preview, download links and folders (albums).
I am testing this idea of putting campaign tracking code into item’s html documentation but I don’t have enough data yet to confirm that this could actually work. Perhaps we could also use “visit this link” to unlock your new item etc.
