this is why i believe Envato is the one who must promote the marketplaces and drive potential buyers. And authors need only to supply the files.

I believe any author with this attitude will never make the top author list.

Check out the referral rates, it’s quite easy to reach 70% if you put in the hard yards. Then you can relax.

I created a blog that gets a few thousand visitors a week. Items are listed on the side of blog posts: http://dtbaker.com.au/random-bits/google-analytics-php-api.html

Also, a bit tricky, create a fake “free download” site that just has a bunch of fake “download this item for free” links but just takes the user through to envato. Helps increase referral rate and also dilute the nasty ‘free download’ sites out there.

Yes, best to advertise your own items separate to envato.

This article is about codecanyon but could be applied to other envato marketplaces: http://freelanceswitch.com/industry-tips/thriving-on-a-code-marketplace/

Hey peeps,

Trying to work out a good format for a default PDF invoice. The invoice template can be adjusted (text/images) but I would like to provide a decent default.

PDF : http://ultimateclientmanager.com/demo/temp/Invoice-110527.pdf

Any thoughts?

Sales may drop for many reasons (public holidays, end of financial year rush, natural disasters, tax time, etc..) The great thing is they always pop back up (you can’t really expect similar sales on every day of the year, that’s just silly)

Best to stop worrying about it and just release more high quality files.

you could try:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)$ /pages/$1.php
RewriteRule ^([a-zA-Z0-9_-]+)/$ /pages/$1.php
you could also try my favorite:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ rewrite.php [L,QSA]
and inside rewrite.php you do all the calculations as to what file or files you need to include or run (eg: maybe initialize a database script before including /pages/foo.php)
