yeah i guess you’re right, but i think that if you work full-time FD and create about 10 good files/month you can get there pretty fast(about 6 months)

then it will be even harder because more files means less quality as you distribute less time to focus on each file. ;)

it depends on how much time you spend on each file. If you work all days all nights to create 10 mind blowing file per month then gold paw is not so far from your palm :)

However it is practically difficult to manage the sales ticking as well as posting new files every week. I think even 5 files per month is very difficult to handle due to the following reason:

For the new items, we need to respond to the buyer’s requests within 3-4 days so that the item updated to fulfill everybodies needs before it vanishes behind the pages. It is better to update the new files with requested features within a week, so that we can assure we didn’t missed our sales by not doing small changes. Personally, I think this is an important factor to improve sales for generic items.

So I think if we spend 4-5 days to prepare an item, surely we may need to spend atleast 3-4 days (not full time but frequent attention and improvements) after the file gets uploaded. I think 10 items per month is possible but chance of missing obvious features on our item will become more.

Congratz all you birthday people! I fee like an old man on this site! (This post at least). I’ll be extremely happy if I get a Silver Paw by the time I’m 30 (In February).

As for the number of files being uploaded every month, I’m at about a 1-2 files a month rate. I think it would be very difficult to do more than than. Even files that I think will be easy and quick to make usually take me longer, just from making sure there aren’t any bugs and trying to make good documentation. Plus, adding in help to buyers and all the Freelance that comes in off of this site. (If you haven’t put yourself out there for freelance work you are missing out. This site is great for networking & exposure).

Best of luck to everyone meeting they’re goals! Even with the number of Authors & files growing exponentially I think the opportunities are limitless on this site.

Joe
