Hey elemis and Denoizzed,
You should have received an email to your Marketplace registered email address letting you know what you need to do to get your carepack when you crossed $125k. If you’re yet to get the email, just send an email to support and we will get it looked into
Yet another question. Received my Tuts+ account information today, but it still says – “No active membership” and “Join to access”.
Actually what I have is useless username and password which gives me nothing. Did I missed something?
Is this an actual joke? No seriously? I was half expecting Jeremy Beadle to pop up from under my desk when I read this.
You’re removing the ability for authors to set their own prices and test the impact of different price points on their businesses and replacing it with a custom forum title? This has to be a joke, right?
As someone that operates their entire business through ThemeForest, and has managed to grow a small team around it, substituting one for the other is not going to wash. And while everyone can always learn something new, 12 months access to Tuts+ is hardly a worthy replacement or incentive based on the assumption that Elite authors have already got some skills to pay the bills.
Getting straight to the point, these are things authors need to run their businesses more effectively, myself included:
1. The ability to test different price points and measure impact.
2. Analytics which allow us to track click to sale. Without any analytics we’re playing a guessing game with promotions, advertising and essentially ANY marketing activity.
3. An open rating system which allows us to see why people have rated an item poorly. Without being able to see this information we are playing yet another guessing game and have no feedback loop to improve from.
These are things authors don’t need to run their businesses more effectively:
1. A custom forum title.2. More badges.
