As an author would know, exposure is key to selling on Envato. The more your item is visible to buyers, the more chance you have of making a sale. But is the Envato platform providing enough exposure for your work? You might notice your item does well in the first few weeks from upload after being on the home page, but then it will significantly decrease once off the home page, if you get on the popular page then of course you’ll have more extended exposure. So if buyers can see your work, more chance of them buying it – it’s as simple as that.
Currently there are popular pages for each category which shows weekly best sellers – this is a great way for authors to get extended exposure and for buyers to find the best weekly sellers in a category.
But down the right hand side there is column to show the all time best selling authors. This is not relevant to the buyer since he’s already chosen to be in a category, and those top authors might not even have items in that category. And this is not useful to the author either in that category and is not going to help them get further sales.
To make these category popular pages more useful to buyers and authors, a solution would be to rather display the monthly top selling items for that category. This will give authors a months extended exposure and will help buyers find more relevant best sellers. A win win for authors and buyers.
Top authors get a huge amount of exposure on this site and their sales show, as the sites grow it’s going to get harder and harder for authors to get noticed, so we need to create new exposure channels to create more opportunities for all authors.+1 this post if you want more exposure. If we don’t ask for improvements, we won’t get them. And the more authors respond, the more chance Envato will listen.
+100 and then some.
My MacBook mobo failed around a month out of the warranty, but the folks at the Genius Bar were cool, and replaced all the failed parts for free. Then they took a chip out of the lid by accident themselves, so replaced the whole lid/screen for me. So I basically got a new MacBook (minus the lower half casing).
As long as you don’t storm in there ranting, and raving. Nice and calm, and a bit of a sob story will get you a pass with the geniuses.
Do you have an Apple Store nearby at all?
Let’s start a new thread – ‘It’s grim up north, but they have the best designers/developers’
NW too. Just outside Manchester.
Really sorry about this, it looks like your ticket was accidentally routed to an unmonitored part of our ticket system
I’ve re-routed it for you and given it a little bump, we should hopefully have some more info for you soon
Really sorry about the delay!Christian
Cheers Christian. Fellow blighty member I see. Which part of the UK are you from good sir?
When do you guys get back in touch. Sent an email at the end of Feb, got an initial response from Noel on the 1st of March, then nothing?
Any chance of some kind of response?
guuthemes saidThe example with Eggs is perfect. Only one thing – not 12 eggs but 300+ eggs))
@aligatorstudio I understand your concerns but buyers decide what sells and what not, unfortunately. Give people what they ask for.
Like mentioned earlier. Authors + Envato = The guilty party.
Authors (in the early days) building mega-themes to say “Hey look at this size of ours…”, buyers lapped it up. Envato did not change the pricing structure. Mr buyer sniffs at more standard themes in the same price bracket, and expects 300+ homepages for $50 there on in. There’s the cycle.Like I said a few times before. You buy six eggs, it costs X amount. You buy 12 eggs (an analogy of mega-themes) you pay X amount more. How simple can the math be?????
Point duly noted
