My game asset for this contest: http://graphicriver.net/item/space-harvester-game-asset/8808236
Got my first 100 sales… finally! I wish I knew if I’ll ever hit 200
Damn, I thought 09.09 was the time My mistake.
Dear Envato, could you please do something about your SUPERslow reviewing process? Many people wait for already 4-5 days! And tomorrow is 9.09. Don’t you think it’s totally unfair and disrespectful to make people design things for a contest and then don’t let them participate just because you don’t have time or people to review them?
Same here, I submitted my work for the game asset contest and for now 5 days passed (the system says “3 days”, but it’s bullshit). And yes, I’m already expecting them to wait for another 2-3 days and then just say “Sorry, your work was submitted too late to participate”.
I just read the article about all the new stuff Envato’s going to add in 2014 and… honestly I didn’t like the part about refund. I hope Envato staff will pay some serious attention to the whole refund-related routine, because I can clearly see a lot of frauds buying stuff, then demanding their money back for no reason and then using our submissions for free.
It’s also a very sad news for the young designers who can make mistakes in their submissions and descriptions. How it was handled before: somebody buys your stuff, then contacts you and says “You see, here’s something I don’t like about the work I just bought”, you correct it and both sides are happy. In the near future an unsatisfied customer will demand his money back in 100% of cases.
No panic of course, but well… dear Envato, I hope you know what you’re doing.
Depends. But guess what, right now I have only 14 items in my portfolio and 4 of them are simply old works I uploaded with no real hopes. And with those 14 items I still earn about $100. So if you’ll make a big and strong portfolio with almost no fillers you could earn… I don’t know… $2-3k. At least I know a guy who has a HUGE portfolio (close to 1000 works) here on GP with about 75% fillers and he earns about $1k/month. Try to avoid making “just something” and at some point you can beat him just like that
I’ve got a prefect zero! Cool! Wow!! Party!!!
I use my own stand-alone web-site with a blog (Wordpress). It’s well-indexed and usually people find the blog articles in Google, come, click the links, get to GraphicRiver etc. I’m not sure how Pinterest or any other social network account works for this. The main thing is you should be sure your blog or portfolio is well search-optimized, you should pay a lot of attention to SEO, because almost nobody would really follow your website and buy stuff, but lots of people (potential customers) actually come from Google.
