I use my own stand-alone web-site with a blog (Wordpress). It’s well-indexed and usually people find the blog articles in Google, come, click the links, get to GraphicRiver etc. I’m not sure how Pinterest or any other social network account works for this. The main thing is you should be sure your blog or portfolio is well search-optimized, you should pay a lot of attention to SEO, because almost nobody would really follow your website and buy stuff, but lots of people (potential customers) actually come from Google.
I wouldn’t consider quitting my daily job until I have at least $2k monthly without going lower during the problem months (August & December/January). It would be a starting point for me to start thinking if I really need to work in an office.
As time goes by I do my own tests with GR and as I’ve seen for several times now your earnings fall to the ground as soon as you stop uploading at least several items a month. It means no vacation
Thank you Wizdesign! Thank you guys!
I don’t design logos, but my wife does and about a week ago she told me it has become really impossible to get a logo approved. And I don’t know why because her logos are perfect and clean (she’s for a looooong time in this business). Support doesn’t bother to answer any questions.
Yes, thank you, that would be logical. I hope somebody who already did it once would reply. Just to be 100% sure
I’m sorry if the same topic already exists, but I didn’t find it, so here’s my question
I often see how designers use some other designer’s pictures from Photodune in their flyer, poster or business card designs (in the demo only!). The pictures never are part of the product, but there’s always a link in the description where you can buy the photo if you liked it so much. How do you do this? You just contact a designer whose picture you’d like to use, ask for it and then place that promo link in return? Or you always buy some extended licence for the picture you’d like to use in your design?
Thank you so much for the info!
I’m sorry I don’t want to argue either, I just want the Envato rules to be much clearer. By the way I didn’t find any way to contact the support directly, so I pressed “Request Staff Reply” here.
I didn’t see your styles, but those 500 You mentioned is a file with 20 styles and each with 25 color gradients, which makes it 500. May be, that is the difference. @caligrafx your example with 170 styles isn’t relevant as it is a bundle…
Sorry, but where are all this rules and special conditions are described? To me a style is a style, even though it’s just another style’s colour variation… I mean could we actually get the rules our files are approved or rejected according to?...
