@DDStudios – That does help, thanks, and your portfolio was one of the ones I had been following to work out the best way to approach this.
So PSD files still sell (just not as well) even after the coded file is up?
I guess I also want to add to my list of questions for you guys is; I don’t know how to code WordPress (only edit existing themes) and it is something I’m learning. So at the moment all I can add to ThemeForest, in regards to a full website, is a HTML /CSS site. Comments I see all over the place have “Can you make this into a WordPress theme?” – so do non-WordPress sites still sell, despite not being WordPress ready?
I’ve been watching “trends” of successful ThemeForest authors and what they sell. I’ve had this question in the back of my mind for awhile now, and I just wanted to get some feedback on it, if you guys are willing to share
I have a few PSD files of unsuccessful website concepts that a few of my clients have rejected, and I’m aware that these can be used for sale here (as they are not in use).
My question is what do you guys prefer – putting up a full PSD version of a website to see how sales go and then create the coded version as a new file for sale? Do you prefer to just go all out and the first and only file includes PSD & coded files? And if you do have a PSD only file up first, do people still purchase it after you have released a coded version?
I’m merely wondering as I want to know what might be the best way for me to spend my time for the better result.
If my question is a little confusing let me know and I’ll try rephrasing it. I haven’t had my morning can of V, so I’m a little tired still
Thanks in advance guys!
It was a little confusing after I got my first sale, but that was because I was just looking at the three sets of numbers, rather than reading the text.
I can’t really see an easier way of displaying this text to be honest.
Just something I thought could be profitable because weddings def have money to spend.
That’s definitely a good point – I will see if I can make this one of my first ThemeForest uploads
Just curious: do you guys (designers) use a graphic tablet for your designs? or is the mouse enough. I’m thinking of buying one but i need to be sure this is a smart investment.
I own a graphic tablet, but I only use it for drawing/digital painting/photo retouching. I don’t use it for web design though, as I find the mouse is more than capable
Graphic tablets are great though, so if you find you do need more control, I would recommend you get one (doesn’t have to be the fanciest, most expensive one!)
Hope that helps!
I think this sounds like a great idea! Hope it can be implemented!!!
Hahaha – thanks for sharing
...now it says “Temporarily held by the review team”. So my question to you is, how bad is that? How often does this happen? Do you guys get this sometimes or is this just a newbie mistake? Does it say WHY they (IF) declined your design in a mail or so?
My first file had the same thing happen (I’m new to the marketplace too) and it is nothing to worry about.
I asked support after waiting 4 days with this information for my upload, and it is nothing negative. Patience is the key, as apparently the reviewers are finding themselves with a huge influx of files to review.
Most likely, it has been seen by an initial reviewer and they are getting a second opinion
Just a thought – how about you take into consideration the fact the people working at Envato took 6 months of their time to actually design and create the new marketplaces, and they might be feeling a little proud with all of their hard work?
I think they deserve to have the “Welcome to the Redesign” on our homepages. Stop being so self absorbed and think about the hours of work these people put into a fantastic redesign.
Plus, It has not been a month since the new design, I believe it is 2 and a half weeks. Give them a chance.
