Hey, for the last month and a half my new WP theme was selling very good, at least 10 sales per day stable and every week got to the “Popular Files” page. But for the last 48 hours there are 0 sales. Is there any reason for that? Maybe change in search algorithms? Let me know if somebody else has the same issue.

Ah yes, this is that spooky thing… we had a html that was for I think 5 month on top that all of the sudden one week it dropped 50% and from that day it never recovered, why? Really don’t know.

I do notice top items advertise a lot but really a lot, there banners keep popping up everywhere i just want to know are they doing that a lone?

I really struggled finding a reason why sales drop all of the sudden for some and for some they just keep going on.

That’s not particularly a proof they advertise “a lot”. And even if they do, other people won’t see those ads with the same frequency you do. You see them more often due to Google’s Remarketing campaign types. These ads keep targeting you based on cookies and terms relating to themes, ThemeForest or previous theme and author pages you might have visited in the past.

Regards, Alex

Envato. When you hit a certain mark as Elite author you get a certain amount of money to spend on these promotions, but i’m sure that you know that.

Anyway, they are starting to be pretty useless as the staff confirms and we’ve also seen it.

I doubt that Envato is advertising those items. I mean it wouldn’t be fair to other authors… I think they advertise by themselves.. Btw, we also noticed big sales drop for the last two days.. I think that maybe people are going on vocations.. It’s the end of July..

Edit: But you get amount for marketing… Doesn’t it mean than that you must make a campaign by yourself. or Envato does that job too?

Envato will not give you money. They will made campaign automaticaly for item that you choose (they create ads image, configure anything, etc). You will not have any access to statistic for this campaign and can’t see how it goes and who bought your items from campaign.

Actually the past two days have been one of the best over the past 30 days for me. Nothing extraordinary, with tens of sales, but a bump from the regular 3-4 sales during the summer months.
