0 SALES !

Well, I can understand how you feel, but the color scheme you chose for the theme might have something to do as well with the lack of sales unfortunately :( if I remember correctly, when you asked for suggestions on the forum, at least one other person said something about the colors as well…

It doesnt matter because have you checked the sales of the items on frontpage now?

Most of them have zero or one sale.

I didn’t read this forum, so I am not sure exactly what is the topic discussed here.

Just like to point a fact that the bundle authors received a new message from envato stating that they will be offering a bonus of 200x for those files as this become successful more than they imagined! Before agreement it was just 50x :)

So I think even if the sales of those items goes down in the coming days, authors are paid already to some extent or fully ;)

I don’t remember exactly, but If I’m not mistaking we were on the homepage at the same time?

I managed to get 22 sales eventually, granted my theme is in a completely different style than yours…

Hopefully you don’t get this the wrong way as I’m not trying to ‘rub it in’..I know lack of sales hurts. Just trying to say that I managed to get some sales despite of the bundle in the end…I probably would’ve had double that number if it weren’t for the bundle, but the %70 commission compensated for things.

Doesn’t matter. There were more than 30 items there during the birthday bundle… Most of them didnt get sales.

Actually it wouldn’t be $4000 – from my working out that would be $25×200 = $5000 – less commission taken – let’s say he is on 50% – that would mean $2500 for Maximus – which is fair compensation I think for something that grossed about $100k I believe some of the figures on threads were saying.

All in all I believe that this bundle has been an excellent tool for promotion of ALL marketplaces and ALL authors – in the long run – plus we have the new designs coming with new functions which will ultimately make the sites better for authors and buyers.

All these buyers will return at some point because they were exposed to the fantastic work done by all authors on all sites. It just will not happen overnight – remember they just got a BUNCH of files to play with – but return they will – this was a great exercise I believe in a few things – bundles work – the market is there for everyone to work harder at including more with your files (create your own bundles of your unreleased products?) – granted you may not get $100k ;) another point being that this will excellerate the already month-on-month growth of the sites, and finally, regardless of media reports money is out there and people are willing to spend – it’s our job to now work out how best to improve our products and what they contain to lure potential buyers.

Off topic quote: “There are two kinds of people in this world. People that adapt to their environments and then there are people who force their environment to adapt to them. Sadly, a lot of progress is made by the latter type of person.” – Episode of E.R. Had to share that, continue on.

off topic,

nice, very sneaky :D …i have also something to add about this, People that adapt to their environments doesnt mean they are 100% happy by what they are surrounded with. They dont adapt, but more a kind of “they get forced to agree to and live with that” and the rest of them just hide in the crowd. I will use one of your situations you shared with us some time ago…very simple example. The computer you want to get in Holland, the price is high by 400 Euros than else where. You dont want to spend the extra 400 euros and possibility is to buy it else where and get it shipped to Netherlands. But then you face another problem…the Customs Tax Fees, they are so high that the computer can cost you even more as the actual price in Netherlands stores. :D

To the example above, are you one of the “People adapting to their environments” or are you more a kind of “forced to adapt to” :D.

As for the 2nd kind of people, people who force their environment to adapt to them ...there are so many examples, starting from the human evolution, experiencing the Victorian Age (LOL) and coming to this days we are now in. The first and simple example that comes in mind are the President Elections…all participants are also “people who force their environment to adapt to them” ;)

I like people that force the enviroment to adapt to them. But they have to be strong, :D the enviroment will not stay there to watch.

So authors (who had the drop in sales) are you back to normal? I ask you because I am to new here and not to many files to actually calculate a trend. So can tell if I got a drop or not, my sales are erratic :D (hope I writed erratic well)
