Sales are dead, I am going to leave the marketplace, it is not worth the time anymore. This is the result of Envato’s policy trough the years, the Atari effect has begun.
I’m totally agree with you that drop of sales is not a result of recent changes here. My pick of sales here was in August 2012 when I have 3 times less items. My bottom pick was in June 2014 with 3 times less sales compare to the pick of 2012 year. For me the break point or downward trend started on December 2012 when, if you remember, the review time was very very long. I worked very hard in 2013 but my sales continued to drop down. So this spring I was pushed to start new full time job to be able to eat and live as human. I am in the forum every day trying to read all interesting threads. Before 2 years there were no such threads like ” Happy 10 sales” or even Happy 100 sales. The amount of sales in these ‘happy” threads dropped down too. An year ago or more I started second non-exclusive account for my photos but I realized that I must add some graphic items to be able to withdraw one day my little earnings. This year I added a few quality items there spending more time for previews and detailed help files but it didn’t help. New files are almost invisible for the search system and as an author I feel myself also invisible some days. So my withdraw time ( minimum $50 ) for second account is 2 months. I’ve not given up completely by GR & PD but honestly I’m happy that I started this full time job. Now I can work on new items without thinking if my month earning will be enough for bread and internet. I’m thankful for help to many people that I met here so I had my happy times. But I’m not sure that someday I’ll be able to return on full time job here.

Hello, you are absolutely right, when I first met you I was having an earning of 800 USD per month, and in the last month it was 150 and in this month it’s just 16 USD for now… This covers 75% of my income and I’m so frightened to face the next month. Specially the overheads and regular live life expenses and stuff….. :(

I have actually seen a sales boost this month, not a drop. I’m very new so I only get a few sales a month, but I’ve seen a sale almost every day this month so far.

yes that can be, envato may be focusing on new members on SEO and throwing a little away the old authors

Yeah drop for me too. The rich is getting richer and the poor getting poorer that’s what’s going on with the world today. I also don’t think envato place any ads campaign anywhere especially for a specific template category of mine. why wasting money for that, huhh? Hang in there guys!

+1 Well said!

I think joomla! deserves its own separate category link next to wp and more promo. It’s the second most popular platform and the most professional. I never understood why it is so underestimated here.

Im not sure which banner you were talking, but you meant some kind of a hackin or something ?

Wew, I just realized that joomla is under CMS category… that’s hilarious…

////
am I wrong if I’m thinking that this situation started since the announcement about those plugins’ vulnerability?

The new way of searching, trendy items and popular items all are now focused on those items, we are not getting sales unless our items are trendy or popular… people were buying unpopular items if they are good enough for their needs but because of this trendy feature people are now use to buy either trendy or popular items.. I think it’s time to get another marketplace in the Internet by some one

Same here, I’m also bit tensed because it like never happened. 2 days of this week are with no sales + over all sales drop.
Yes first time ever, this kind of a drop.. I think something wrong with the SEO or something….. I feel afraid of what’s going on inside

I’m not sure what is the reason behind this, may it can SEO. This month is not going good at all. Sometime I think, is payment system working fine, not all buyers will report you if anything is not working either payment side or demo.

They just ignores it and move on to next one.

Oh.. yes, if it is it’s a critical thing….. I think envato has felt it now if they are facing such…

Reading that full article was a bit scary… this sounds like a perfect way to get already popular items even more time in the spotlight… I’m pretty sure buyers will like it, but I don’t see how this is good for all authors. Where’s a proper search function with useful filters? :/

Yes of course this will promote again the popular items, the other items will be hidden and will make lower sales, I think this will not going to be an author friendly one according to what I feel….. feel scary
