Actually, besides seeing the rough estimation of everyone’s income, I don’t see the added value of this. There is no extra information that you cannot already see in each marketplace.
Are you joking, dont you?
I’m not joking, just give me an example of which other interesting &relevant information (besides estimated income) you can see there and you cannot already see in the marketplace.

This is worrying because the estimated monthly earning are WAY off. They are not correct by a long shot. The numbers are way to high.

Prices of items change from time to time, there was also huge bump in wp prices not so long ago, without historical data there is no way to account for that – estimates will be tens of thousands off for some authors.

Uh, so maybe there is a bug in calculations? Monthly income of the item for the period BEFORE monitor was running is estimated by its income divided by months from release. For the monitored period its quite easy addition.

Frankly, I’d expect income to be lower than real (due to extended licences, $2 extra payments for the item etc). I’ll double check those calculations just to be sure it’s not a stupid bug on our side :)

True that. Everybody please remember the tool does estimates only… quite accurate, but still only estimates.

The longer it’s alive, the more accurate it will get.

We’re looking for beta testers of our “Marketplace Monitor”, so that 1st of may we could announce official launch. Here it is: Marketplace Monitor.

Long story short, this is a tool that allows you to track sales, comments, rating of ANY item published on ThemeForest and CodeCanyon (other markets will come soon). Analytics for all authors on those two markets are also available, as well as global market stats – like geolocation of authors or best selling item/author on the day before. ...

Hi, CreateIt-pl… why you create this app ?

:grin:

We wanted to get answers for questions we had. And then came to the conclusion, that probably every author has such questions :)

So, not to hijack your thread but I’ve also been collecting some data on themeforest market to understand why some themes sold better and for some other project.

Here, on plot: item count and author count in function of time as a proof:

\\

So I understand that it required some work on your part, and don’t want to sound negative – but I would be a bit scared of publishing authors’ earnings in so open way.

Sure, there are up there, in the open, you just need to do some math – but… As future author I would rather discuss items sold rather than money. Sure they are basically the same thing, but dollar sign in discussion just makes some people behave bad:( I have already saw that once on this forum, an attack on author “you are making so much money, so you have no right to complain” [wording changed].

I’m also not sure if comparing authors on $$$ and building ranking around (just) that is good idea, I would prefer to think that rather than directly competing authors of themeforest are together building a bigger market.

Also focusing on items sold seems just plain more useful to me.

On the other hand ability to discuss money openly is a mark of maturity that community has reached, and let’s be honest majority of themeforest users will not visit that page. But if you decide to go with it, at least add some more things to the page:)

As for other support and suggestions: - sadly there are many important factors that you can not monitor – like any external marketing that authors are doing: blogs, freebies, social marketing, ads - (for the authors) past data not always is a good predictor of the future and acting on intel gained by analytics is a skill in itself - just plotting data will make you see interesting things but without good data mining skill you will be unable to explain them [this is where I’m now:( ] - it’s also hard to tell apart something from just noise, like on this picture (admin template sales in time):
