Hello everyone how are you?

What do you have to do to be a featured author? I would love to know what are the criteria envato markets uses to be one.

Thank you :)

Create outstanding items and the reviewers will pick you – it’s down to them

Hmm I would not be so sure about that for all marketplaces though :)

I have seen, for instance, on 3docean, that there were Featured Authors that only had 1 or 2 basic 3d models, nothing special or outstanding – yet they have been featured.

I have never been featured myself even though I am in top weekly sellers with 2 or 3 items now for weeks (and monthly/3 months top 10 authors also), had 2 featured items as well, etc.

To me, it really seems that Featured authors there get picked randomly :D

well im one of those lucky featured (new)author!! :D

until now i still don’t have any clue on how they pick me, to be honest i see a lot of authors that has more items, more sales, joined 3-4yrs ago and popular files than mine. i even jumped from different marketplaces just to get a sale.

that’s why, when i saw the email stating that i’m going to be featured in GR, it really feels like i won a lottery ticket. :D

I would say the main factors are: being a good author, being active in the community, and being lucky. Luck is probably the most important part… :D Oh, and be an author on more than one marketplace. That’s helped me a lot with features and so on.

You’ve got a black paw, so you probably don’t suck. Don’t be hard on yourself. :P
