I doubt that Envato is advertising those items. I mean it wouldn’t be fair to other authors… I think they advertise by themselves.. Btw, we also noticed big sales drop for the last two days.. I think that maybe people are going on vocations.. It’s the end of July..
Edit: But you get amount for marketing… Doesn’t it mean than that you must make a campaign by yourself. or Envato does that job too?
Header is nice. It is simple but professional. Slider is also OK, but you could work on it a bit more . Other parts are pretty boring and generic… Put some more effort in it and add more or different content. I belive it’s near to get approved, but you will need to work a bit more on it..
I don’t belive that anything is going to change here. It might be rude to say, but I think that Envato couldn’t care less about false ratings, or it’s authors… It’s sad but true. We had a bad rating where client wanted major customization, we said we do not offer customizations for free and BAM, 1 star rating. Contacted Envato support about it, got generic response that a user has right to it’s own opinion and that’s it. Now we have a situation, “thanks to that microlancer banners” that a client didn’t know how to install WP, paid someone else $50 for it and then put 1 star rating on our newest WP theme accusing us that we charged him for it…
Bottom line, this whole marketplace should be developed from scratch, starting from better support policies, meaningful review system where author can respond to it’s client, system that is transparent (ratings should be public), that “cart” functionality which should be developed years ago and so on…
Until that time (maybe in 5 years or so) we can only complain to ourselves.
Well I think it is the normal price. This is One page HTML, doesn’t have blog signle layout which is normal for one page templates to have, so I think this is a fair price..
Your template is priced that way because it is One Page HTML Template, not because of low quality . Nothing to worry about. I think that the maximum price for One page HTML is $12 or $13..
Me and my partner are alao living from Envato earnings. We work really a lot but we love what we do and try to give our best.
