Sales since new banner came up: 2 (two) Am I the only one? Is that a coincidence?
Sales since new banner came up: 1 (one)
Next update: tomorrow.
But no offense, envato.
You don’t get it.. It doesn’t matter if the banner drives buyers out if they won’t find what they’re looking for on ML. And they won’t So they will come back anyway..
Maybe they will come back, but maybe they go back to google and start another search, after the didn’t find what they looking for…
So let’s track our sales now….
After just one week we got a new banner on top of all pages again, which pronounces “web design from $20”.
Ok, it’s microlancer, which is in fact a good idea.
But, imagine that you came from g*le and searching for a nice template. All eyes on the banner -> Webdesign from $20 -> “Oh wow! Thats cheep, why a template if I can get a whole custom design for just $20?” -> click -> no sale on themeforest.
My concern is, sales will drop again because of that big banner… Anyone else or am I just too sensitive about such banner things at the moment?
Sorry guys, but now you just look like you enjoy moaning. The new feature is pretty good. If an item has 6 ratings with 5 stars and just 1 with 1 star then obviosly the item is a good item with one crazy person who didn’t like it, and buyers know that because they see it on Amazon and Google Play and they see it on every marketplace. If the text will be required then people who rate will drop significally, because if now it is difficult to make them rate, how do you imagine with a required text? Then again, if you require the text just for one and two stars what you will get will be a file with six “five stars” and two “one star” WITH a bad feedback like “It has these bugs” or “the file is large I had to install it via filezilla” or “the documentation is very unclear, it look like the person doesn’t speak English” which are valid feedbacks, but are negative, besides, it will be wrong.
I know that you want to get rid of those one star ratings you have there, but guess what, they are normal, the file would look scammy with 3563 “five stars” ratings, so if you want a good rating, make a really badass file, but don’t moan just for moaning.There, I said it, attack me now!
+1 – totally agree with it!
