I love this site. I really do. But, I have some suggestions that I believe would be conducive or at least help in the continued generation of revenue. So. I am a buyer, havent had a complaint yet. Also, I do understand that what I do have a complaint about – I can just tweak or hire someone to tweak it, especially with the low prices. Love the prices! That’s what makes me a fan, and I believe your site will generate revenue for years and years. But here is my problem.
I believe that the Item Request section should be on the first page of your site. Why? Because a lot of buyers would probably hire the authors for more things—especially if they already purchased products from them: 80/20. Secondly, I believe that the authors should have an email alert for possible items that they can create. For instance, if they are an author and they have already created a facebook application, why not have an alert system for those authors if I request an application creation? Or, what if I wanted a request for a song in the audio department? And the person that made that kind of music was alerted that I needed something like that. I could be wrong, but I didnt see this as an option, then again I havent created anything yet – so I havent looked thoroughly. Third, I think that there should be an emphasis on more mobile source code (for apps) and outright applications that are already created and ready to be sold (that could be in the microlancer area), facebook / twitter / tumblr and instagram application codes should be emphasized as well.
Also, I know there is a highlight of the best designer how about the designer or the programmer with the best customer service? I think that we should be able to vote on it and then they get a prize.
