As many of you have noticed, Elite Author numbers of late are ramping up!

Check out this chart of the program’s phenomenal growth since its inception many moons ago:

When I started a year ago, there were something like 400+ Elite Authors; as at time of writing we are heading towards 800 fast!

In the first half of 2014 we have welcomed over six new Power Elite authors which presented the first of our dilemmas – Power Elite Day header bars were becoming too common therefore less special. We did some projection forecasts and by this time next year we expect to have 1100 Elites and Power Elites expect to number 50. Whoa!

We want to offer more of the stuff you love, plus make this program more manageable for us. Running 30+ advertising campaigns a month is becoming unmanageable and ineffective.

Today we’ve relaunched our website elite.envato.com and wanted to share with you details about the new rewards.

We’re finding the top tier advertising campaigns less effective as we run more of them so we’ve been focussed on bringing out bespoke funky rewards that we hope you’ll dig as much as we do.

We’re also introducing Envato Studio credits, giving you the perfect opportunity to hand off some of those ‘other design & build’ jobs that just never seem to get to.

My favourite addition personally though, would have to be the Envato Power Elite Wall of Fame which you also asked for. Check it out now!

Collis has also gone literally bonkers, and has added a brand new aspirational level to the program for those super high achievers who need to dream big! I hope you like outer space :D

When we last surveyed the Elite Authors it was clear from the results that the care packs and merchandise were most peoples favourite components of the program, so there might just be a heap of new swag involved too… check it all out at elite.envato.com.

And as always I am your go-to man for anything Elite related, you can always reach out to me directly on email, Skype, wherever – I’m here to help!

update

Silly me! These new rewards kick off on Sept 1, 2014 which gives everyone 30 days to claim the existing rewards as they were. From Sept 1 onwards these rewards will be applied to all who reach a new level.

My god, I never saw this side of Envato before. Now that I have, I know what my goal for the next 10 years is. :D

After reading all that and then going back to my profile, I found my face going :( with only $38 on my account. But still, motivational and a bit crazy idea. :)
