bundle is over

i must admit, it doubled my expectations in terms of sales

but i didn’t know it would have included swf encryption tool, which is why i have bought it and probably a lot more devs here

was it a smart move ? i’d say yes, to sell more the bundle itself
it did not include a single component or xmas related item, could it have sold more and attracted more new buyers if it did ? we’ll never know

all i know is bundle were proposed to bring new customers here

if have to judge by this week referral income for me / other authors i know, i’d suggest to stick with more traditional tools for that.

However it was, I’d like to thank Lance and the whole Envato Staff. They’re doing a great job to keep this place alive. ;)

Not sure if the bundles are advertised outside Envato marketplaces. Anyone knows about it?

Sure are. Check all the blogs owned by members that put advertisements up.

Really? For me it’s been a huge and evident failure compared to other bundles. As I’ve said in the other discussion, this bundle has been bought by authors, not buyers… just for the secure swf and gs things… probably the new buyers have been 10 or 20 :)

I just woke up, so I don’t know if it crossed the 1000 sales… in any case it was sooooo slooooow…

i didn’t say i expected it to be a success, just that my own prevision was around 500 sales

my point is we can’t rely on bundles to bring fresh air here.

i stongly believe the flash/AD combo has still a lot of potential
but despite all the chat about advertising and ui improvements, the only thing went out so far was the bundle

Yes Indeed it did better than expected, but still didn’t do as well as the “other” bundle from a couple months back, which had 3,000+ sales. This flash bundle had just over 700+ sales. Big difference. But, if rather than advertising HTML web content (the ebook), they could have focused more on Flash related content, it might have looked more promising to those who were interested in flash. I mean, considering it had more flash related content in it.
