What does every author need? Advice from a buyer who knows what she’s talking about, and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. That’s Annie (chickscanfly), an avid fan of the Envato Marketplaces since 2008 who has an uncanny ability to customise items for her clients.

Would you like to know what one of our top buyers looks for in the items she purchases? Read the interview on Envato Notes to find out!

I always love knowing how items are used out in the wild, and the process from client request to final site launch.

Thanks for sharing!

Cheers

@adriantry hi, thanks!

Interesting!

She says:

I tell authors, “We all know everything has to be responsive. Everybody knows that responsive means tablet, web, iPhone, iPad, Android… So don’t show me an iPhone or Android phone.” Your preview has to catch my attention. Otherwise I’m not clicking.

but before that she had found and bought the theme which thumbnail has iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro and iMac that’s strange in my opinion.

Any way I listened and most likely won’t use all these gadgets in my next theme.

Hi, there’s such a big diversity of buyers on themeforest that one point of view is far from being enough to get a better insight on what buyers are looking for (a lot of buyers can’t even make the difference between a template and a theme) others are beginners and aren’t familiar with responsiveness or bootstrap, some buyers care about the look, others about the features… etc

It would have been more interesting to share a survey with buyers and get statistics from their geographical area, type of experience, average purchasing budget per month…

that’s how we get a better insight on how to optimize our affinity in understanding buyers’ needs & reqs

Cheers UOU Apps
