Maybe it’s because of this ? http://videohive.net/forums/thread/please-fix-videohive-search/169731
It’s been a while since they have implemented new faceted search and we have some problems with search which were talked about in the forums but those problems seems to persist anyway.
So I will remind again about them.
One of the problems.. I would even name it as main problem of search – is the length field filter which is required in After Effects item BUT doesn’t work in search. In other words – the length facet actually ruins the search results if buyer tries to find AE item of certain length.
Example 1. Buyer selects After Effects filter > Then selects what duration from 1 to 14 seconds > And the results are !??
Example 2. Buyer selects After Effects filter > Then he selects that his animatios should be not longer than 1 minute 14 seconds > And the results are !??
We can see here that all newly submitted After Effects items requires length in time so if buyer sees that he thinks that VH search is actually picking the results of AE items by lenght perfectly. BUT he doesnt find any templates with selected lenght and just leaves.
Envato please, do something about this persisting problem because both sides are loosing sales.
Authors you are welcome to add any other search bugs or comment on this issue.
Search is the biggest tool that all the authors got and how the buyer reaches our products. And that search is not working properly.
somehow sales became slow for past weeks… and for sure its not a noise of ups and downs anymore… sales are getting lower with each week.. Envato do something about it :)) Maybe the overall monthly income is getting an average but the sales are behaving really weird.
Sales become crazy low. Whats going on!?
Me and StockHunter we were finishing our flight just when this accident happened near the place that our flight started.. We were coming back from a project in Italy.
So shocking to know that while we ended in a calm trip home and while we were taking the luggage some people plunged into a mountain top and died.
deeply saddened by this.
Let’s hope such accidents perish with advancement of technology.
You can start by small steps. First small step will be removing the envato logo from your avatar
This install/render/export service would be lovely for videohive after effects projects. Customize and render out final product for client for additional price. I would do that
(H4 ON) I would say add more buyers badges.. like… MUCH MORE badges for the buyers to be more motivated, because now it’s just authors who get all the fame… we forgot buyers in the badge world (H4 OFF)
Abstract buyer badge ideas:
- Deposited biggest amount in one deposit – is there anyone who deposited 1000$ in one go ??
- Certain marketplace lover – in example VH LOVER or GR LOVER.
- Supportive/Trendy buyer – buyer who bought 10 new items on the first day of that item approval !!!
- Buyer who always leaves feedback or reviews and rates items – this would encourage rating
- Buyer who cares about license – buyer who bought extended licenses.
- Motivated buyer – the one who buys every month – if he doesn’t then the badge disappears. The badge appears if buyer has bought in two months in a row – in example one item in any day of January and one item in any day of February, if he doesn’t buy in march then badge disapears.
Please remove the lenght choice in AE search facets as it is not working properly and not giving the results… in example there is plenty of projects which is “technology” theme and is appointed to be less than 20 seconds… but the search just doesn’t find it.http://videohive.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=technology&view=list&sort=&date=&resolution_min=&length_min=&length_max=20&frame_rate=&category=after-effects-project-files&price_min=&price_max=&sales=&rating_min=
in example there is also “travel” projects which are between 1- 60 seconds… but if you use faceted search.. you don’t find them.http://videohive.net/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&term=travel&view=list&sort=&date=&resolution_min=&length_min=1&length_max=60&frame_rate=&category=after-effects-project-files&price_min=&price_max=&sales=&rating_min=
PS: and YES those projects were updated with new attributes and should be found but none of them are…
