...but maybe the rent’s are astronomically high in London.

In London, it’s not uncommon to pay around €1000 a month…for something like this :notfunny:

\\

So, although most commodities here are ‘reasonably’ priced (although I personally disagree with this), it’s especially rent prices that push things over the top.

Holy Cow ! That’s a nice flat :) the kitchen sink is possibly also the toilet, right :) ?

SURE ? Whenever i visited London i had the feeling it’s much cheaper there than in Zürich. But maybe it depends on what all counts in. Food, Drink and Clothes where a lot cheaper but maybe the rent’s are astronomically high in London.

Flat for 1 month: 40 sales … Food for 1 month: 25 sales … 10 liter of gas: 2 sales … Yes, Czech Republic :)
my goodness…in Switzerland I need:

Flat for 1 month: >300 sales … (incl. addditional costs like water & heating, but not electricity)
Food for 1 month: 160 sales … (ok, for the entire family, but only when we buy cheap food)
10 liter of gas: 2.5 sales …
Wow, that’s quite expensive :)
I’m sure however, that a nice average full-time in Switzerland fully compensates such high costs :)

That’s not really the truth. Most people from abroad think everyone is kinda “rich” in Switzerland. This might be true if you work as a investment banker or similar. But as a mechanic or supermarket sales person, you will have a hrad time to keep up with the standards here.

So, as a “Artist”, it’s allmost impossible to make a living out of you art / music with a very, very few exceptions.

Conclusion : Switzerland is a rich country with high standards, but it need’s a lot of efford (some people have 3-4 jobs) to be able to life here as there are not many cheap flats etc.

Hello All

if you have asked me a Year ago, i’d say promotion will do a lot to your sales. Now after quite some time with heavy promoting my music on Soundcloud, Faacebook, Twitter, Youtube and checking the stats on Envato, i see there’s not really that much from these referal links.

While i have around the same numbers of clicktroughs like AlumoAudio, i have only about a 3rd of his deposits at the same time. Don’t exactly know where this is coming from, maybe my stuff is to bad :)

I’m still feeling, that having tracks in the “top items” list will help the most….. only how to get in there ;) ? As said in another thread, most customers search for some keywords and sort by sales probably in 90% of the cases. So, this is sure a thing why top sellers will even get more sales. The rich getting richer and …... you know what i mean :P

Haha, this made me laugh…. thanks Taco :)

..and yes, this is something i have been posting about a few times myself. Some people where speaking about being loyal, and i tried to explain that i feel it has also to do with how long you have been here allready, how many people you have refered, how much of your Marketplace earned money you spent again on one of Envatos sites and so on.

But i think, Envato will reward you only if you bring money to the marketplace (like the growing percentage you mentioned). I have spent so much time in promoting the marketplace and my music on Soundcloud, Youtube, Vimeo, Google+, Twitter and what else, but at the end of the day i dont think it’s worth much. Compared to having a track in the top item list, it does not really help you selling your music.

Customers usualy go to the top items, or use the search engine and sort by sales. Sure not everybody, but most of them.

So yes, i’m all in for a reward to all the grandpas and grandmas :)
