Hello everyone, My projects have low sales although I don’t think their quality is so low.

Do you have any ideas of how I can change it ?

Thanks, Daniel.

Hi Daniel,

I think most authors who sell well have one breakthrough file. This draws attention to them.

Looking at your portfolio, I’d say that most of the files are available in a very similar form somewhere else on the market place. Imagine you’re a buyer and you can choose between two very similar files, one that 300 other people have bought and one that 0 other people have bought.

I’d suggest that what you need to do is produce something new and different. Perhaps look further afield for inspiration… print design media, photography or art maybe.

There is also risk involved in this approach. I wouldn’t look too hard at other Videohive projects.

The market is very different now to how it was a year ago. Many categories and styles are pretty much swamped with material. It’s time to think different.

-f.

Hey Daniel,

Though I’m not a VideoHive author I came across your post and thought I would make a suggestion.

With one of your upcoming projects, try to go above and beyond anything you have ever created….aim very high, maybe even to the point of a little frustration at first…force yourself to push your imagination to a new place. How you do that,...well it’s different for you then it is me, but the easiest way for me is to get “inspired”. What moves you to create? (other then money). Don’t just enjoy your next project, but become passionate. All these things will start to shine through your work and attract attention.

Study the portfolio’s of the top 5 sellers on Video Hive and try your best to match and even exceed their creativity, execution, delivery….even if they have skill sets that you may not, do the very best you can.

I don’t think your portfolio is bad, however there is nothing there that REALLY jumps out at me. Felt_tips is right in saying you need that one breakthrough file…so I would suggest keeping your focus on that idea, project after project, until it happens.

Hope that helps man!

-Tim

Hello Cyzer
