To promote your art, probably StumblUpon is one of the best. Lots of designer and design blogger use SU to promoto their work.
As for communicating, I use LinkedIn for making connection with my studio clients.
I use these site to promote my personal design or my studio artwork: - Flickr (join groups in your niche) - DeviantArt (not very active, have a very poor leads) - Dribbble - Facebook (we use Facebook page) - Twitter (to share and promote about artworks)
Enabled, come closer so I can wisper in your ear… shhh…ready?: this was about complains for the review’s process speed, not about complains for item rejections! (I do agree with some things that you mentioned though). Thanks for the laugh man, bless you LOL
Maybe those items that got rejected makes the review process slower.
Put it this way, usually vector files I submitted was averagely 5th of 20. But on total files in marketplace it’s usually hundreds of hundreds. So, if 30% of the queue items are badly designed, and get rejected. Than the reviewer team is loosing so much time to just reject someone items. And then that someone, boohoo-ing in the forum, wining about the rejections.
I think the test on GraphicRiver is way too easy. For instance in iStock, the test is quite hard and need seller to send work samples before got approved. I was rejected by iStock once, because they said there are already too much items in the marketplace.
ATM , I am just giggling if I stumbled a thread about rejection or complaining about slowness of item review. Probably they are just newbie and young (in marketplace), and want to get easy bucks straight away. Wait until they have to wait several weeks to get their money .
The reviewer noted very clear about reason of rejection.
Unfortunately this file does not meet GraphicRiver’s strict aesthetic guidelines and cannot be approved
Personally, your design have a lot of room to improve. It’s felt too generic.
Take the time to read some design book, and practice more to make the design looks attractive and more aesthetic.
Use StatCounter. Insert the tracking code into stock description. The free version can keep 500 page loads.
Graphic4444 have you tried replied back to the author? Perhaps it’s just a miscommunication.
I have to admit, his reply is quite harsh.
Welcome to the dark cycle of doom!
First of all you have to get rid of you BootCamp partition, eat up too much precious space for a Mac laptop. How much is your HD? Guessing from the old MBP , it probably around 12GB.
Get Adobe CS4 suite for Mac, use CS4 or CS5 , relatively stable than previous version.
Also if you have some money in Paypal, there’s a bundle on sale at VoteBundle (google for it), you will get some useful apps like SpeedDownload.
I have been a mac user for 5 years, when I got my first Mac. I google everything, no more crappy windows software or partition. I tried everything on Mac, it will make speed up your learning curve. Mac is user friendly, you have to get rid all you windows workflow or change it.
Gotta stop typing, in a minute I will sound like a fan boy
Once again, congratz on the switching to cycle of doom.
Not in million chances.
Make new items that related to the old one, and link the items in the description.
I am also stopped adding additional preview images just like @Raincutter.
I think all preview image must be JPG , not PNG .
I’m piping up cause (I’m a girl and) I’m interested in knowing how many girls there are on envato. I’d guess there is at least a 80/20 ratio of male/female, if not more of a separation.According to a recent author survey we did it’s around 94% 6%
Haha laugh at the selected emoticons.
