I also had some mixed feelings about this, until i saw the examples. Most of them are the worst designs i have ever seen, so i won’t worry about any kind of competition :D Most services offered on ML (i’m talking about the ones that are low prices, not the ones that are correctly prices and offer quality) are really amateurish and unprofessional as i see them. The ones that look really good have a high price, so there is no competition from my point of view.

I think it’s not about the design or the quality of Microlancer items, top banner takes buyers from envato which are trying to find items on envato and purchase. It doesn’t matter if they buy or not on Microlancer.

You don’t get it.. It doesn’t matter if the banner drives buyers out if they won’t find what they’re looking for on ML. And they won’t :) So they will come back anyway..

Maybe they will come back, but maybe they go back to google and start another search, after the didn’t find what they looking for…

So let’s track our sales now…. :-)

Some of them will come back and some of them will not. So again envato lose buyers.

...Learn what microlancer is…

According to that banner, I just learned “web design from $20” ... Now that must be quite confusing for web beginners imo. It’s also, at least, puzzling for those who don’t know what microlancer is :)

I think you are getting upset for nothing.

First of all, if you are new on themeforest why would you click a banner? I would never click a banner on a website unless I knew the site could be trusted.

Secondly, it says from $20 dollars. As soon as they click and see the $200, $300, $500, $1000 dollar prices they will hit that backwards button as most people will think that is too expensive. Because why would they be at one of the cheapest and largest theme sites if they were willing to spend that amount of money? Exactly, they would’nt.

I think it is good for envanto to explore how this banner will affect sales and besides, they want to give their new project a fair chance and I for one really do get that.

There are so many posts about what envanto do wrong but I think they know what they are doing and you should have a bit trust in them as well. They got good staff and I don’t think they put up ads like that without looking at both positive and negative effects for everyone.
