What do you guys think of releasing two versions of one file? For example light and extended, I’m working right now on an update for one of files and I wanted to also release the light version of this file with only basics features…

Hi,

I think your are allowed to upload max 3 variations of the same file, so I guess you can.

But, you would spread your file sales on the 3 versions, so probably would be more difficult to hit the popular…

Very good point, my question is is it worth it? :) once I release the light version there is really no turning back because the sales on the other one will drop.

if you are talking about your top seller, don’t.

Yeah, don’t do it…

I know that you want to do this because everybody is releasing flip books now, that’s the way authors react when a file sells well… but they won’t do your result, don’t worry…

Yes I wanted to do this with my flip book, and also with my template. But I am not scared of other flip books to take my places :P

I won’t suggest either side but this is the theory I find from better selling files for my personal decisions:

If a file can go longer than 300 sales within 3 months, that means it already has a nice balance in features comparing to it’s similar category files. In such cases, just answering the buyer questions is enough to do from ourside. Not easy to control our mind though from thinking about newer versions :D

A little tip: Don’t ask your competitors about your plans for releasing future files, because you might not get the answer you’re looking for and you’re also giving your ideas away at the same time. And you never know how it’s going to sell or effect your other files until it goes online so no point in discussing it here because there are so many factors involved for the reason a files sells it’s almost impossible to predict. If you upload it and you think it’s a bad idea, just delete – problem solved. So don’t talk about uploading something, just do it ;)
