What if I want to provide free support to buyers? I would rather offer my time for free rather than getting $3 per month.

I am wondering why Envato thinks that it is good idea to continue down that path
Money.

Envato can make more money using annual subscription.

You can just take the money and then give them your account password and they can change their email and password after that.

But, if they have an existing portfolio, they would need to transfer the items.

If you try make good money here, you won’t succeed but if you try make good items, you will make good money. Anything is possible with enough time, and focus ;)
I am not sure that is true. Do you think most popular 1st spot items were good items? We have seen couple of 1st spot items in ThemeForest, and I never thought any of them deserved their spot.

Haha, well what I meant was – don’t focus on making money, rather focus on your product and the success will follow – because the reality is, it’s quite hard in the beginning to make money, so some people get discouraged, the pay offs only happen much later after hard work and taking a risk.

But you’re right, making good items isn’t always going to get you to the top, but I would say “ridiculously good value for money” items is a better way to get there.

Now, I agree with you :)

While they might not be as aesthetically pleasing as some other themes, but I think they understood well about how to market their items and what the buyers want. Of course timing and luck does come into place but I would say these items are generally considered good. At least they provide good support to buyers.

I still disagree, I can point out couple of themes that can out-function and out-design top items that hasn’t sold well.

The best example would be Kriesi ’s Enfold. If it was functionality or code quality, it would be the best selling item.

There was one author who was pumping copy-paste WP themes every week, he had like 60 of them in 2 years, who was making close to top sellers.

Can’t argue about support though.

So you don’t need good items to reach good sales. I personally think, the best way to sell high number of themes is to make it generic as possible.

You had to delete my whole post instead of editing the part you feel inappropriate?

Alright, I ‘ll rephrase it.

Envato opens a thread, People ask questions, Their questions get totally ignored, Staff replies are unrelated to what people ask, Then, why open a forum thread? Just make a blog post and be done with it.

I asked 3 times on this thread for the reasons for Envato not to choose paid updates route so we can anticipate with your decisions.

@andrewfreeman:
would it be possible to optin to the included 6 month support but optout from support extension packages? rgds
mac

I think this would be a viable option for people who wants to sell their own premium support.
