Microlancer the new limited freelancer market inside Envato. I dont think this will keep me smiling.. So, this mean.. If I have an after effects template.. And a buyer need to setup the template.. The buyer usually ask me how much I will charge him, and we usually work together. There I make some diferences.. But now.. In the same market with the one I make a partnership. Other people will be the working hand of the market, making the client have more options, or a cheaper one. Making me gain less, or work for less. I think these freelancer option should be out of Envato market.

Hmm… I don’t think that’s something that’ll be considered. I think Microlancer is now another strong tentacle of Envato, and it will keep growing along with the marketplaces. Why don’t you try to make the best of it too?

Well, I think the point of Microlancer is to find available, professional freelancers, to make modifications to a theme/script or whatever you bought from Envato. Why pay someone else, outside Envato, when you can do it right here?

This also means you can now use Microlancer and make more money then what you did just selling and editing your products…. this works out both ways.

If you’re being out bid by quality people, consider lowering your rates to be competitive. All Microlaner does is give a client base the opportunity to find professionals and gives freelancers from Envato the ability to freelance.

What’s wrong with this?

I think it would be nice for Authors to have a 300×200 button on their item stating that,

“This Author Will Customize this Item for You, Starting at $29.00”

Microlancer is okay for larger projects as opposed to item specific.

+1 that is far too low and many new buyers already have a misguided opinion of how much stuff should cost, how complicated some changes are or what constitutes customisation and this would only add to it.

Potentially something that makes more of a point about author being available to make modifications within the item tabs could work but definitely not with any pre suggested costs attached

It’s a business baby. Be competitive or be out.
