The best way to find out direction is by Asking Buyers, with a SURVEY .

Otherwise it’s just a handful of us with our opinions, which may not reflect everyone. And I don’t like to bicker back and forth, I already have a wife..lol.

I have yet to see a SINGLE buyer say “ooh I’m glad you put your self-serving logo ident advertisement at the start of your Ae Template preview, that really helps me decide whether or not to buy it”.

None of us buyers want commercial author self-serving promo idents, and NO OTHER TEMPLATE site in the known universe allows that, as it’s not an industry standard, and it annoys, confuses and misleads buyers.

When I click on a PREVIEW video, I expect that everything I am seeing in the preview is what’s included in the project file, because that’s what EVERYONE ELSE in the known universe of AE template sites does. Think of a new user, they see a logo ident that’s followed by the complete project, buy the template, and missing logo ident, saying to themselves wtf I’ve been ripped off. (I did, once, and I’ve bought more than anyone I think).

Don’t annoy buyers with self-serving promotional ads for yourself—that’s bad business, unprofessional, ego stroking, irrelevant to what we’re buying, and not what anyone else in this business does. It doesn’t belong here. Put your logo ident inside video boxes, or have a promo reel on your profile or whatever, but don’t defile the video preview with a self-branding advertisement at the start.

‘nuff said.

Anyways as a former corporate consultant, we run into disagreements all the time with managers w/different opinions, the only way to gain clarity is with Data… specifically from BUYERS … with a Survey, for this and other things related to usability/features, would be a good idea for envato to do. (I like surveygizmo.com and surveymonkey.com for surveys).

I said about 5 or 6th months ago saying that having an “personal brand intro” in your video shouldn’t be here… When you watch a preview video everything in that preview video should be available in the file you download. Unfortunately when I brought it up back then no one agreed with me.

you can’t put links to files… just tell people to check out the music in your portfolio instead.

Just wait for it, August is historically our come back month. Generally August kicks things back into high gear and it usually doesn’t slow back down until halfway through December.

wow thats amazing news… I’m happy with things right now… can’t wait until next month now!
