Probably should write publicly on what parameters are estimated our projects. This would be fair, now we play blind. What should include a project that costs $ 25, for example? I have two years here and still do not understand it clearly

Pricing the projects is one of my biggest concerns.

Prices for files are relatively standard, but they do seem a little irregular.

More worrying to me is the general price deflation. No-one would dispute that the quality bar has been raised enormously lately and that new projects often contain considerably more work than similarly priced projects of a year or two ago. For motion graphics files, prices have reduced quite drastically, whereas for project files, prices have stayed the same despite a huge hike in quality expectation. Factor in inflation and the reducing real-terms buying power of the dollar (like most currencies) and it spells out a lot less pay for a lot more work. This is a worrying trend, but for the time-being it is being balanced by greater buying traffic.

I’m sure this isn’t a deliberate policy, but the result of the following attitude in reviewing: “If it’s been done before, it’s worth less.” This makes sense on the face of it, but it means that the same product is sold for less and less, simply because it isn’t new and this forces all prices downwards.

I just worry that creative work is becoming like the “stack ‘em high, sell ‘em cheap” supermarkets, whose power and economies of scale are able to offer consumers unbelievably low prices. But it’s a well known fact that it’s often the small producers at the end of the chain who suffer the most to provide the goods at these knock down prices.

I’m sure that VH and Envato want to support the small creative producer, so I hope they take some action to support prices a little in the industry. It’s not like this downwards pressure on prices is necessary. There is little competition at this price point. :(

The other day I see light bulb footage priced $30, and my last project $25.

Maybe reviewers will help clarify the picture?

I’m also wondering, is it the quality, length, number of placeholders, number of elements and tutorial quality or? From what I learned in this 1,5 years here, none of above…
