The “just sold items” would be great but the overall meaning of what i proposed is to help exposure of new items/authors… i imagine that the “just sold items” category would be just filled with music of the top-sellers authors… and that will not help new authors/items to get exposed. maybe a this list should be limited to items with very low amounts of sales, let’s say les than 5… it would not have sense to grant more exposure to items already in the top seller category.
i strongly support this but I think the whole idea of “exclusivity” for a royalty free website has no sense!
Do you like the idea (if is it permitted by the forum rule…) of starting a topic regarding your last audio sale??
i thought about this: there is a topic, maybe sticked in the top, where authors can post the link of the last song they sold ONLY IF the sales are less than 3. So, if you upload an new song and it is bought, you are allowed to place the link there. you can do this for 2 times for the same song, until it reaches a total of 3 sales, then you cannot post the link of that particular song anymore.
the idea would be just to get more exposure for new items and new authors…
and maybe there could be different topics for songs, logos and SFX.
the first sale came only yesterday after 5 days from the last sale and a very bad september! let’s hope for the future!
I don’t! it costs too much for me!
the most difficult things is getting noted by them!
Envato authors consider and treat their item’s pages like landing pages. Many promote and link to those specific item pages through social media and even paid promotion.
Rule number one of landing page design, do not link outside. Do not take the user off the sales page. Even more so to link to a competitor item. This is not YouTube or MySpace with related music or “you might want to listen to this song too”.
Upselling other authors’ items on my page (particularly forced upon) wouldn’t make me a really happy man.
the same should be implemented in VH template, i.e. i’m looking for a video 20-30 seconds long for a particular commercial or intro, for example.
ah, and one last important request: could you tweak the algorithm so that my items will always be in the first place!? :D:D
here too I have a lot of days without sales in septembers… I just came back to one year ago when i had 6 sales in september with just a few tracks submitted and only one month in the community! I just hope that one year later, with 100+ tracks added in the past year, thing will go better!
