I am not an author on GraphicRiver, but I am a frequent buyer, just like many others. I browse new items regularly (every few days) to look for some cool stuff that I might find useful.
- One of the most important things, in my opinion, is the thumbnail. That 80×80 pixel thumbnail is what I generally look at, and if it isn’t interesting to me, then subsequently I don’t look at the item.
- Next, the banner image that pops up when you mouse-over the thumbnail is what will really inspire me to view the product. Generally, a consumer will find many results for their search term, and won’t want to waste time loading each page and reviewing the item. Therefore, the consumer will want to see a preview of the product in this banner, along with some of your awesome features.
For the most part, it looks like you’ve been doing this.
I think you should note that your products are all Presentation Templates. This category is not too popular, and hardly any of the templates will get a sufficient amount of sales in a month. People searching for presentation templates are usually looking for a specific setup with specific features. Look at the most popular templates and compare them to yours. Do they have some gigantic feature that you do not?
That’s my advice, as a buyer. Hope it helps.
Base5Builder saidYes, I pay for private repos.
As GravityDept mentioned, you can use bitbucket, it supports free private repositories.The reason I use GitHub even though I have to pay for it is because I find that it has a better interface.
I also use GitHub on a paid plan, as I feel it has the nicest interface.
Yes I agree we should be able to update ourselves.
I ended up adding in an auto-update feature to my programs to get around this. The submission process is a pain, I should only need to re-upload the zip, not everything else.Clients update heaps quicker now that the updater is built into my apps too, so that is nice.
You don’t have to update everything else. Just choose the new files from the drop down, leave everything else blank. It won’t change them.
I’m pretty sure my updates never get “reviewed”, they just approve them.
I’ve never had an update rejected and I doubt they were tested.Which is nice for me because the updates come out quicker, and I test everything.
It makes me curious – what’s the point in waiting for an update if it’s not looked at? I’d love to be able to instantly update my products.
The same here, I saw a lot of mistake that set zip file as thumbnail or preview showcase. My update always approved and sure that they don’t review update. My item was approved even its lack of document.
Yes! And it’s being such a pain right now to get this resolved. Taking too long to fix files. This happened right after I emailed all subscribed clients, too, notifying them of the update.
Last night, I accidentally uploaded my screenshots .zip file as my main files. Oops.
I didn’t realize this until this morning, however, after the update was approved. How did this get approved? Makes me wonder whether the reviewer made the same mistake as me, or the update really wasn’t reviewed.
Similar problems? Any facts? I’m currently awaiting my new update to be approved, with corrected files.
This morning I thought of testing out Facebook advertising. I did it by making a post on the company Facebook page and then “boosting” that post. I instated an initial $30 USD to it and received over 1,000 hits and 50+ interacting visitors within an first hour.
Targeted: The boosted post targeted the top 3 countries in which buy our items, which were France (1st), United States (2nd), and India (3rd). Since most of my apps are SEO-related, I put the target as “search engine optimization”.
Funds Spent: I launched the campaign for an initial $30, but stopped it after $4 were spent. I had $26 remaining.
Results: Though we did not get any instant sales, the rate of sales (how much time between each sale) for us later picked up to the most in the last month or two. The post had 40 likes from ad-clickers in the short hour it ran.
Anyone else have any experience with Facebook for their items? My experience is positive for now.
GravityDept saidEnvato support was sent a notice, which was then forwarded to me. And it’s not like I included Envato’s email address in the report, so if everything was automated, how can that be explained?
This is bad advice. I’ve sent DMCAs to Google a dozen times and it’s always handled in under 24 hours and accurately. I doubt there’s any human intervention at all because of the volume of requests they must receive. Their DMCA form is designed for automation. Odds are this was your error — not to antagonize but let’s be realistic where blame likely falls. It’s not like a Google employee went in and manually edited the Google index…
Google sends an automatic email to the website that had the infringed content. They usually just mass-mail to info@, support@, webmaster@, and so forth. They also notify via Google Webmaster Tools.
So really, it could be automated. But I doubt that they would let something as serious as a DMCA notice go without human review.
