But please, give us much better searching as well
You’ll be hearing from our Search team soon, they’re an awesome bunch. I spoke with Michelle, our Search Product Manager recently. She will be dropping-by in the near future to tell you more about her team and the search project which is complex but obviously a huge, huge priority for both Envato and our community.
I just came up with an interesting formula. Get this:
Total Earnings from Referral Cuts / # Deposits = Deposit Average Deposit Average / 6 = 5% deposit average 5% deposit average x 20 = 100% of all the money used before the 30% referral cut.
It would take 20 sales for each referral to get exactly what the current referral system gives 30% of. It’s a good way to calculate exactly what you could earn if all your first referral cuts were earned at 100% commission.
Feel free to pick my mathematics apart, I’m not sure this is entirely correct myself.
I agree with you that the Bargain Basement could have been worded better and pitched differently. It was purposely removed however because the time and ‘money’ it took to manage was more than actual sales from the Bargain Basement collections. I think they were more popular with authors than buyers ultimately.
Thanks for the reply. I thought the reasoning behind cancelling Bargain basement was something like this, but wasn’t completely sure. Although, there still is that bit of uncertainty that’s left in the air: could’ve it been different if Bargain Basement was more adequately promoted? Maybe many buyers didn’t even know about it.
Maybe it still should find itself on list of potential features for the future, but this time to be more automated, in order to put the pressure of reviewers/staff who were maintaining it…?
Can you think of anything else along these kind of lines to increase item exposure?
Actually, I do. I suggested this one before and it seemed like justinfrench liked the idea, but it might be good if I mention it here as well.
The thing is, with us, authors with big/huge portfolios, portfolio pages are so messy and crowded that I guess potential buyers simply give up – if any buyer is actually browsing author pages at all. What I’d like to see on portfolio pages is a tree-like menu of categories and sub-categories to serve as a filter, just like the one we have on this page: http://audiojungle.net/category/all in the right-hand column, or like the one which appears on the search results page: http://audiojungle.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=elegant+logo (also in the right-hand column).
P.S. It’s nice to see you’re “back” on the Forums
