Well, I already started selling on the Envato Marketplaces and I would know what username do you use and what you think that make more sales and help buyers and sellers finding you. Do you use your Full Name, Brand Name or you just don´t care about it?

Cheers, Diogo R.

Hi diego, as “miseld” said, you don’t have to worry too much about the username. You have to write a great description of your file and use many keywords for the buyers to find your file. The preview image is also important, so you should make it attractive. If you want, you can also promote your file on twitter. (don’t forget you can’t make self promotion here). Good luck! ;)

Thanks, and yes I know that we can´t make self promotion here :) However I thought that would be more professional to having a brand name or something like that.

I started out as FlashWebservice, but I didn’t create Flash Files.

So, I eventually changed my user name, and sales are fairly well after about 2 years.

I should concentrate more on creating new files.

I don’t feel too concerned with my user name, nor do I care about the other users I buy from – if I like a file, its presentation, uses and documentations I’ll probably buy it.

I’m not concerned about other users names.

looks like the thread ran off the spool a bit. I use my web name that i use for every site I want to be found at. that way if someone cant get a hold of me here they can Google and find me at other places like twitter or other forums. My name changes if i dont want u to find me at places that contain too private material such as pics or ahem adult content ahem.

Its the simplest form of self advertisement. Like Coke-Cola doesn’t go by Popguzzleers1896 on facebook. they are still Coke so they can be found. Also links point to things im selling, whether here or ebay or my own site.

So yeah its a personal preference but it can make a bit of difference. Other than that yeah keywords do help along with good title, description and image. I wish i made my brake rotor thumbnail be shown in use instead of like it is, but that’s a good example.

Personally, brand names arn’t the ones that I remember. It’s personal names that stick, for me. I guess that’s why I (subconsciously) have never even considered using anything else than my real name. And I like it so far. :)

So your real name is Joost ?

Thats Cool name.

Personally, we use names that are unique to the site we are on, we rarely use the same name twice on different venues. Plus we pick names that have bugger all to do with who and what we are.

They are “usernames” after all.

Personally, I don’t like to see ppl using their business name and/or real name.
