Hi there.

Short and sweet question.

To give back to the AJ/Envato community, how can i offer one or two of the new festive tracks i’ve done, for FREE to all registered Envato users.

And can this be for a limited time only?

Regards

Panda

Hey Panda-Bear! Your offer is a nice move, but as far as I know, it is not allowed to give away free files to the community, because it undercuts the hard work of the rest of the authors. Please be sure, & check out the forum rules.

oh that’s a shame.

I can;t take your point though about undercutting the hard work of the rest of the authors.

We ALL work hard. But sometimes as a one-off it’s nice to give away a free flash template or audiojungle file to ‘give back’ to the community.

This also helps promote that particular file and that particular creator as well.

Perhaps a Free File of the Month feature would be a good marketing way of locking buyers into regularly visiting envato, and increase loyalty.
