So the corporate bundle is available to download for 2 weeks. Seriously does this entire marketplace depends on bundles to survive?

I remember the days when bundles released to attract more traffic/buyers and serving it as kind of birthday gift. It had some professionally understandable reason behind for such a huge discount. But as of now it looks like bundles become one permanent channel of revenue for Envato at the risk of stability of regular uploaders. Decided to directly compete with everyone’s sale?

So what is next? a 365 days bundle?

Do the authors within the bundle get a cut ?

To be honest, it starts to become annoying indeed. I thought bundles will come when they are necessarily for traffic improvement and holidays.

This psychology is what makes most of the authors to stay “shy” and prevents from complaining honestly. Look things from overall point of view than “one” person’s point of view. Most of the authors here making suggestions / complaints not for self benifits but for the stability of system.

I’ve been in bundles before so I can speak right? :)

Why extend from a few days to a week to 2 weeks – because your latest bundles haven’t been selling the same quantities therefore if you can’t sell the same numbers in the same period of time you increase the period of time which increases the exposure which you hope turns in to increased sales.

If it’s for traffic then why introduce bundles during busy seasons on the marketplace rather than during the slow months? I’ll bet the percentage of these new accounts that turn in to regular repeat full paying customers is in the low single digits.

I don’t beleave bundles affecting other authors sales much. I think bundles attract many more new customers as well as it’s good fortune to be included so no problems from my opinion. :-)

>.. but for the stability of system
stability of the system? Anyone estimated average overall weekly system sales vs. bunde sales?

Best Regards, Andrey
