boomopera saidNo, it’s not actually “little” ; new items need exposure and that category links was the key for that. All we want is “equal” and “fair” exposure right for all fellow authors.
Sure, every little helps..
Maybe the “fact” that it is not little is just your own illusion? I guess it is as much exposure to us as starting a thread in forums or…complementing on someones item… nothing we should worry about too much in terms of boost in sales..yes it was perhaps more relevant when new items were presented bang on the front page and not on the far forgotten footer..
^ Eight days ago they said that will bring those buttons back but will take some time because of “envato birthday and a lot of new stuff shipping”. Please allow me to be a bit sarcastic, bringing those buttons back is not like building space ships and shouldn’t take that long! We all know, exposure and visibility are everything! Right now seems that only Envato staff doesn’t know it. I will repeat what a fellow author said in a previous post: one-click is better that two-clicks and visible is better that hidden.
Yes but did you think why it has not been implemented yet? They (Envato) have the information whether those links were in fact crucial to generating sales or not, so bringing those links back just cause it seems logical from an AUTHOR’s point of view does not make sense. And the whole new items list was moved down the home page for a reason too, cause I think its only viewed by other authors, not buyers.. I can not imagine a scenario where the majority of buyers hover over the new items list, feeling lucky, clicking on totally random items to look for something specific.
I kinda got over it… but thinking of going silver than gold than platinum… was kinda cool…well it is gone for good now…bye bye color paws… wish you, the new paw, were more distinguishable at first glance… cant tell whos what level until you squint your eyes and read that small tiny number…
It was my best day so far..ever…9 sales, 6 of them were 100% and one of those 100% was a pack… everything happened so fast…and then it just dried and died…21h without a single sale now…
PS.Thursday is my new Wednesday
Zdrowia, szczescia, pomyslnosci!!!
So when does it end exactly, EU time? Cheers..
wish that my 2x extended sales that came out of nowhere last monday happened today.. and shame that the birthday does not happen all the way from the start of 21st…but its good anyway…I sold one juicy pack and 4 more other tracks….20bucks a piece its a rush of blood to the head indeed;]]]
