some strong opinions :)

it may work if envato do this for elite authors but I’m sure they can’t invest time for all the authors – one needs to verify the items, approve them ecc.

I’m quite curios they didn’t do this it till now. get one elite author, pack couple of his items for a limited time. promote. earn.

I’m against this but the idea is still valuable.

Off course another option could be to implement a fidelity system. If you purchase two+ items from a certain author you get a discount of 20% on a third item made by the same author. Or different items numbers and discount percentage. You put four items from me in a hypothetical cart then you can get one for free. And other promotion like this.

The question is. Did envato need to do this type promotion or the marketplace works fine like this?

If the buyer have no problem to pay for the items why discount them?

The question is , how far we will lower the value of our own hardwork.
Come on, aren’t they already “low priced” enough ?

I understand problem about “low priced themes” There are some themes that are a little harder to sell, so I thought this was not a bad idea to get those little boost.

Like Doru says this may work for Elite authors. and ofc good question is ” Did envato need to do this type promotion or the marketplace works fine like this?”.

As I wrote above. I thought this might be a good idea, but obviously not.

@Gavrilo, don’t worry, you only started with the wrong step. We’ll not forget this. Be aware. Next time! Or else! Just saying!

I will let this one keep an eye on you!

Thank you for your understanding :) I will not go out with these ideas anymore :) I already have something similar at home http://distilleryimage11.s3.amazonaws.com/f4f5c4e898c711e2a2f822000a9e0707_7.jpg

Gavrilo is probably new for selling, so it is understandable about the ideas.

When official bundles also advertise ”$500 worth of files for $20” it is highly devaluing the items as if all those items are just $500 worthy. There is no limit for undercutting in the world of inefficiency. Period.

An official / entitled procedure of discounts cause more damage to value than individual attempts of lowering the prices here and there.

@ VF Tnx mate, Yes I’m new in terms of sales via ThemeForest.

@doru for a moment I had a feeling that people want to destroy me. Next time I will think twice, before I post anything xDDD

Cheers
