I’ve always wondered what creates the exponential sales effect on each marketplace, and now I realise it’s largely a result of the advertising promoting top items on each sale on the marketplaces, see an example below of the exponential sales effect on ThemeForest of the top 30 items. Note how the graph climbs for the top 5, which is also the amount of items displayed in the advert after purchasing an item.

\\

For every sale an author makes you are promoting top elite authors and making them more sales. And for every sale that top elites receive from this advertising, is a lost sale to everyone else.

Plus one this thread if you want to see more fair advertising and cross promotion of items, or don’t do anything and continue to watch top elites make more money off your own sales.

+1… Alhough i have to add that i don’t expect any action; this curve is the shape of nature.

All the best for double the sales in half the time. Congratulations, well deserved.

Some of the badges and insignia items on GR have truly inspiring combinations. Thanks for all the links here.

Welcome Fiorella, Your job sounds complicated but i am sure the environment there at Envato will make it easier. My visits to Italy a few years back are my best memories.

I didn’t know about the ligatures thing either, so thanks for another tip. They are few and far between these days.

I find that my Intuos takes up too much space to be convenient as a mouse as well. It depends what you want it for. I also have a Pen and Touch on my other pc and use both all the time. Even the pens can be swopped. The nibs for the pens are important and i quickly discovered a favourite, so try them all before stocking up because they do wear out.

Aaargh, my condolences… that’s really bad luck. Either the buyer spent the money just to make an expensive negative comment, or he bought it expecting the file to be something else completely. Maybe s/he is an author with a similar logo! The reason s/he gave is quite immature in my opinion, or maybe English is difficult and s/he doesn’t know how to explain. I also have items with a single bad rating out of many excellent ones, and i hope people look at those for a realistic judgement and ignore the few who need to try and drag others down.

At the very least i hope you get some sort of explanation.

I’ve done very similar characters for animated videos as well as the stuff you see in my portfolio collection ‘Illustrations’. I would be happy to give you a quotation after a more detailed brief. :)

Interesting and informative thanks; do people actually print flyers or mostly send as digital flyers? I never see any printed flyers around here (small town) except sales flyers in hardware and clothing stores. What happens in large cities?
