I was not at the Envato Community Meetup in LA on Friday night because I was working at home in Chicago since my wife doesn’t let me go out at night.
See my response here: http://videohive.net/forums/thread/hey-guys-tell-me-please-who-uses-my-music-in-projects-at-videohive/103079 you are asking literally the same thing.
WalkOnVisuals saidThis would not work either. Think about it, everyday more and more people are becoming members to download files off of videohive… more and more authors are uploading new files everyday. This makes the marketplace larger and larger every month. So if I had to guess, I would guess that 90% of the time every new month has more sales than the last one.
I don’t say they should give us all data, not even actual number of sales. But at least some percentage. They could just tell us something like this: VH sales stats for August: +10% compared to July. I don’t care how much money envato makes, I just think we need some kind of statistics so we can put things in perspective
Very slow sales.. even putting the new item out didn’t help. Anyway, I think that envato should provide some monthly statistics to authors, about overall sales. We are partners in this business so I think it would be fair. Without that, we can talk here day and night about sales, but we won’t be anywhere near the answer.
Not going to happen!! Its like asking a coworker or boss what their yearly salary is and how much money the company is bringing in every year. We just got Google analytics for elite authors and that is the closest anyone will get unless you sell $2,000,000+ for sales trends
Just thinking about this for a second and anyone could easily be on the #1 spot after some sales… Sales divided by number of files…. If someone makes lets say 1000 sales on 100 items that would be a 10. But now that this hypothetical person has 1000 sales and then just deletes 95 of the 100 files… Well that kind of just put that person as a possible top spot forever.
