UPDATE: Thank you so much for the fantastic response! No more volunteers required at this time and we’ve already used some of you guys for a behind the scenes project already! We’ll come back and open this back up again if/when needed.
I occasionally invite community members behind the scenes to test new features and/or answer some brief questions on new tools or documentation we’re working on at Envato. We’re growing at such a fast rate I’d love to update my list of willing and able community members who might be interested in helping with these kind of things. Just another way we greatly value our input from our awesome community!
If you’re interested, please complete the form below:
Please note that there’s no guarantee that you’ll be used/contacted but I will be keeping your interest on file for present and future opportunities. Thanks so much!
Hello I am new to CodeCanyon, so I’m posting this message to let me know. I have 4 iOS applications and I will do more! I think the forum is super active and the atmosphere is fun! Have a good day
Wow, 4 items in your first four weeks here, and a bucket load of sales already, how awesome! We’re glad to have you here, moncocopilote! How did you hear about the Envato Marketplaces?
Yeah! Number 5 is clear. Guess about 1, 2, 3 and 4. Who knows which one is from whom?!
Hi Iman! I recognize at least one of those.
While I’m here, what inspires me as an author is simply the opportunity we have here. We’re all in total control of our own destinies and we can do as much or as little as we need to satisfy our own personal goals whether they’re financial goals or satisfying creative thirst.
The ability to be creative and make something digital and then sell it to an audience that appreciates it and can put it to good use in a project, it’s just always fascinated me.
I take a slightly different approach to selling on the Marketplaces than some, I actually enjoy being a ‘hobbyist’. So instead of letting the financial opportunity drive me or focus too heavily on what customers want, I prefer to create items that I like myself and to exercise some kind of creativity. If those items get accepted and someone purchases them, then that’s a bonus! This approach is not for everyone of course, many of you do this for a living (and if you really want to be successful you should ALWAYS create what customers want!), but I’ve always loved the ability to use the Marketplaces as an expression of creativity and make some residual income along the way.
That’s the beauty to me – the Envato Marketplaces are an amazing platform to sell digital content and you can go as far and work as hard as you want to. All our Elite and Power Elite authors – there’s a reason they’re successful – they’re dedicated and they put in a huge amount of time and effort and hard work and their commitment pays off. I’d love to be more focused and dedicated to selling more items and higher quality items, and perhaps one day I’ll try that, but for right now, I’m still loving the flexibility of being a ‘hobbyist’.
Are there any other ‘hobbyists’ out there with a similar approach to selling on the Marketplaces?
