Are there any people which use codecanyon as their “main” working place to earn money?
Yep! (actually there are quite a few people who do)
And can somebody give me some advice for the future?
Keep working hard, close down any distractions when on the computer (e.g. facebook), and if you have an item waiting for review then start work on your next item. Try to think of something unique, solve a problem that not many people have solved, or solve it in a unique/different way to others.
I always refer them to this thread: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/how-do-you-describe-your-job-as-marketplace-author/71502
Omg I even replied to that thread. Haha!
I get asked “so what do you do?” a lot. Most people just smile and nod while I try to explain selling digital stock through Envato. I haven’t quite figured out the best way to explain it, especially to non-tech people.
Generally something along the lines of this works: “it’s like eBay, I create and sell apps to other businesses online”
Or even “it’s like wholesale website design, I create a template and other people purchase it as a starting point for their website projects”
Anyone else struggle to explain it? My parents still don’t quite understand what I do. Haha
