We’re about to see a HUGE move from flash to HTML5 now that Adobe has ceased development on flash for mobile devices.

http://blogs.adobe.com/conversations/2011/11/flash-focus.html

I think authors could benefit from this announcement by releasing more HTML5 items on this marketplace – there are only 46 HTML5 items! http://codecanyon.net/category/html5

Think about all the customers out there who are contacting their web developers saying “Hey! I have an iPhone, and my flash xyz thingey isn’t working, can you swap it to HTML5 for me?”

Check out some of the tutorials on HTML5 over on tuts, it’s not as difficult as you may think! http://net.tutsplus.com/?s=html5 If you’re stuck for ideas, have a look through some of the 10,000 flash items on http://activeden.net/category/flash to see some cool things people are doing with flash – don’t copy – but let it spark your imagination for creating new and unique HTML5 items that doesn’t currently exist on the marketplace.

If you’re a HTML5 pro, now would be the time to upload your tutorials to tuts.

Happy coding!

I dare say that is a few feature for the PhotoDune marketplace, where some authors might get hundreds of items rejected, and thousands of items approved each day.

I could imaging the inbox overload when receiving that many emails – so maybe this option will combine all those approvals and rejections into a single daily email.

Probably not much use for anyone not uploading hundreds of items at a time.

Yep stick too it. Good items take a lot of effort to create (sometimes 6 months) but the rewards are worth it.

I have had just over 200 referral cuts over the past few years – with an average earn value of $7.30

How much money would need a month to support your “business”. $50? $100? $500?

How many paid referrals would you need to make at the current 30% rate to reach this value?
$50 = 7 referrals, $100 = 14 referrals, $500 = 69 referrals.

So there’s some rough values for you to work with. Hope that helps!

I wouldn’t mind earning an extra $50 a month for only 7 paid referrals – that’s pretty good earnings in the referral world – if you have a good site with good unique content (not just a duplicate of an envato site) then you will be laughing.

Good idea renaming that “can user login”. Yes roles will work as you planned, still wrapping permission “checks” around everything that displays, so there are a few functions available for everyone (but you can see a difference between the “admin” view and your custom “client” view).

Roles/permissions is one area that will need quite some testing once it’s finished, given the number of permission possibilities it may take a white to test each one :)

Need the ability to export data as .CSV file. In business you will find that excel is your biggest friend when doing your finances.

Yep implementing import/export in all areas. eg: Customer export and import is working: http://ultimateclientmanager.com/demo/customer.customer_admin_list/ Websites/Jobs/Finance etc.. are coming along nicely.

The User Interface needs a lot of work as well. It’s not user friendly at the moment.

Interesting, a lot of people have told me this UI is the most user friendly (ie: easy to use) one they’ve ever seen. Hopefully once all the user functionality is in place I can work on some of the design elements to make it more appealing.

We’ve just bought our second sigma lens. Highly recommended:

Sigma 18-125mm with Optical Stabilizer

Heaps of them on ebay. Much cheaper than the canon alternative – and for the stuff we do the quality difference between a canon and sigma lens will never be noticeable.

Good for landscape and zoom. Some sample pics here.
