I don’t know if this topic has been discussed but how about adding a option for authors to release free files? Sure there is the monthly free file,but let’s say every author would have the option to have one file in their porfolio – free of charge.This would definitely attract more customers to marketplaces and also the free file could be a good demonstration of the authors work flow,project structure etc etc.

Good.Bad?

I don’t agree with this, just think about that there is near 600 authors :) that mean about 600 files for free…

training people to get free stuff is bad. train customers to SPEND money… best opportunity that’s untapped is product bundles at a discount here… once a month freebie file is more than enough free stuff… train your customers to buy early and often… not to wait for free stuff or you get a bunch of moocher customers waiting for free stuff… not good business…

time limited discounts are good though, as in “envato VH save 15% off all projects bought between now and Oct 31st halloween sale (except newly-released projects from the last couple of weeks)... sales work, with deadlines… free doesn’t work

Good points graphic,moochers could definitely be a problem and too many free files would kill the action on bundles and discounts.

@ miseld, Ken

+1 , absolutely agree with both of you guys.

But I still think that the option for authors to make bundle is great, I laid out some ideas regarding bundles but it had few responds if you are interested please take a look here:

All the best.

If anyone wants bespoke projects doing, give me a ring. I’ll work for free for the rest of my life.

I have loads of experience and none of it is worth anything…

so come and get it….I’m completely free.

...

Nah… Bad idea. :)
