I think that if you search something specific you spend a lot of time to find the right project.
+1 True, but a lot of buyers just go through the new items and buy projects mostly because they’re new, as an example, take a screenshot today of Page 2 in After Effects Projects and then Page 87 in the same category, Now wait for a day till Page 2 becomes 3 and 87 becomes 88. Compare the numbers and you’ll see there were more sales in Page 2 than in Page 87… The question is on what page do your average buyers usually “stop” ?

I know it isn’t much, but, my first item got approved and also generated a sale today! I would like to thank the community for all the help and support! Next up, 50 sales
That’s great!!! there’s something very symbolic about the first sale, its that barrier you’ve just crossed :) Very happy for you, it really feels great :)

It’s something that intrigues me quite a lot, is there any statistics regarding the pages people go through? an average for instance? Do buyers go through the first page or two in After Effects projects? do they go through the first two in the whole Videohive stock?

Maybe the average is actually pages 15 and 16, while a few makes it all the way to 20 and the other few stops at page 10 – 11 ?

Would love to hear your opinions / ideas / personal experiences …

Hi, I’m about to upload a rather dense project which does seem to exceed 500mb. Really don’t want to compromise on quality and have also seen several projects been uploaded lately nearly 900mb in size. So what’s the trick ? :) Many thanks!

It says 500mb, but its actually 1gb limit :) Peace buddy. P.S Looking forward seeing that project!! :)

what about if someone posts a video you’ve created without a download link only with a videohive referral link so they can get commission for your work, is that ok? legit? does that mean anyone can open a channel and use others videos to get referrals and extra $$ ?

apparently there’s a term called “Summer slowdown” a friend told me about yesterday (most of you probably heard about it already)

So after a bit of google this interesting post came up: http://www.c2m2a.com/2012/05/4-Tips-for-the-Summer-Slowdown-How-To-Pick-Up-Sales/
and this one too: http://www.buildingkeystones.com/2011/05/dealing-with-summer-sales-slow-down/
Its nice to know we’re all in the same boat and this is a very common phenomenon for people who work in online marketing of any type.

Vimeo certainly converts the videos that you upload, so its almost impossible to get the exact color range of an uncompressed quicktime, The easiest way for me is to export an Animation codec from after effects, then open the file in Quicktime Pro 7 (or adobe media encoder) and use the x264 codec which you can download free here: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/20273/x264-quicktime-codec

Its a bit better for me when it comes to gammas and such, there are more options to fiddle with, and the file size is usually smaller than the regular h.264 - give it a go and see how it works…
