Don’t mean to thread jack…

Things are definitely growing very quickly seems to be a lot of items being added, but sales are still pretty low for GR the bulk of the files are either 0 or 1 sale. I really doubt this has to do with items not being exposed on the home page, I’m thinking this probably has something to do with the purchase licensing, the model works pretty great for Flash & Website Templates but maybe not so much for graphic items.

I read a post awhile back that Envato was entertaining the idea of possibly offering different levels of purchase licensing on ThemeForest I believe, this might be a good thing to look at for GraphicRiver. I really think the single use per purchase license doesn’t work very well for these types of items.

That’s just my .02

+1 for email notifications on file updates – if buyers don’t want this they can opt out in their profile settings, problem solved.

+549621611

I think this would be a great feature, otherwise how would a buyer know a file has been updated, unless they periodically check your item page (highly doubtful they do), I think also letting a buyer opt-in to a new item notification email at the same time might not be a bad idea either

Like DS said as long as you give them the option to opt out, everyones happy

To the people that will argue the RSS feeds for item notifications, not everyone uses RSS …but everyone uses email if they’re buying things on the web

Yup – if I was you I’d just leave it at $1 so it sells well and it might land up on popular files for the week. Then if it stays popular staff will probably adjust the price higher.

agreed, thats a good idea

Just wondering I had one WP theme that was approved on the 7th of this month (day the contest was posted)...does that qualify?

Some great prizes! I’m glad you posted this thread I had no idea there was a competition going on. I’ve got a WP theme in the works, hopefully will have it ready before the deadline

any tool that auto generates code is gonna be all bad, its so much better to hand code

I feel really bad for anyone who has to maintain or take over the code created by these software programs…poor souls. Educating yourself is much easier.
