The saturation of the market brings high instability, a while back you could predict a lot of things and even if you were not among weekly most popular you could have good stable sales, you can still but it is much much harder. There are just so many items and choices that either people run to the most popular list or buy those really standing out items.
Agree with this. Unable to come up with better reasoning myself. Will likely become non-exclusive in the long term and look for greener pastures
Not a good month for me. It pretty much pushes me over the edge and I’ve started blogging now lol.
It does reduce support drastically which means more time to work on new features, updates/products. Might be able to recuperate losses next month
Love these threads because someone else is always worse off than you and you just know if your not in the top 30, it’s got to simply be a bad month (hopefully that is all it is)
Cool interview, this is first class!
egliote saidFrom where did you got those rules ?
I have not withdrawn their money. The rules were written that the money must be withdrawn after a year in which the money is withdrawn. Do I have to withdraw the money after a year, when I received the first money?
I think he is referring to the withdrawal guide
For earnings of less than $50 you can spend your earnings on any of the Envato Marketplaces. If your balance is still below $50 after 12 months, you can withdraw the balance to a PayPal account.
@egliote, apparently you need to wait a year as you suspected in order to withdraw, if your earnings are below $50 and you’ve had that balance for a period of 12 months as the guide says.
In June, Mr. Persson said Mojang “does not exist to make as much money as possible for the owners.” Instead, he said, “Mojang exists because I got lucky with ‘Minecraft,’ and it got way bigger than I could handle on my own.”
2.5 billion dollars later…
As you might already know, Persson is the creator of Minecraft and the majority shareholder at Mojang. He’s decided that he doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a company of such global significance. Over the past few years he’s made attempts to work on smaller projects, but the pressure of owning Minecraft became too much for him to handle. The only option was to sell Mojang. He’ll continue to do cool stuff though. Don’t worry about that.
lol jokes apart, this seems to be a very good investment. They appear to have made 115 million in profits last year from a 291 million revenue, which is good growth expectations in Microsoft’s hands
They also appeared to be heavy critics of Microsoft and refused to make a version for windows phone reputing the platform too small. I guess with their user base, they can move a lot of weight in the tech industry, which makes them a good asset to acquire.
Oh and probably my freeletics subscription
lol MSFX, stop it. Your just going to make everybody jealous!
Got a Garmin forerunner 110. Had this since Jan 2013 and use it to track my runs. We’ve run together 3070+km since. Got a few more runs that need to be sync’d. Not failed me once, still looking brand new!
Something to keep in mind though is while we’re making fewer sales this month, the traffic has been consistent, at-least for me. I guess window shopping is free after all.
If people are not buying as much this month, hopefully they are bookmarking for later
Just terrible, a good month to plan vacations. Will remember next year
There is no reason not to buy an item from any author in the marketplace, elite and non-elite authors alike. It is quite an elusive concept for me to try and comprehend why you would buy exclusively from Elite authors when you yourself are a non-elite author here and will repute yourself lower than another based on sales figure status. Then complain about it when things go wrong.
The status does not mean the author is held to more rigorous standards. In general they are good developers and top sellers. Envato has already given you many tools to gauge quality through ratings, public comments, pre-sale questions, sales count on items, demos. You can even write to the author to test their response times.
In the end, as others have said, you already have the item, so apply the fix. Quite frankly, I don’t know of any updates that break your site to the extent that it is not fixable with a little scotch…..tape
I agree with gravitydept. Paid updates is a good incentive for authors. This is the best assurance you can get as a customer. I hope Envato goes in this direction in the future.
