Older items might be outdated design and code wise, so when searching, try filter by bestsellers / trending and within the last 1 year or so.
So far so good, If possible consider this by digitalscience http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/do-you-want-more-exposure/172995
Please consider the author requests for more exposure, we’ve had 50 positive responses in 24 hrs from level 1 to level 12 authors, from new authors and long time authors – this should give some indication how the author community feels regarding the platform’s current exposure offering
If Envato can improve exposure for more authors, it will be more worthwhile to submit content, the community will grow faster, and Envato will reach their targets sooner – think about it.
+1 You know what I’m sick and tired of seeing these 50 templates in one that are priced the same as a single template. Where’s the incentive for buyers to purchase a unique design when for the same price they can purchase a template with 50 variations for the same price. And you know what if your not going to promote our products Envato I want 90% of my sales not 70%.
+1 I think many of us feel the same. And the situation will likely remain the same unless authors start asking for a better platform which provides enough exposure. If we don’t get more exposure, the 30% Envato share for providing the platform is not justified, and should be less – like 10% as you said , while the extra 20% could be used by the author to pay for their own advertising.
As an author would know, exposure is key to selling on Envato. The more your item is visible to buyers, the more chance you have of making a sale. But is the Envato platform providing enough exposure for your work? You might notice your item does well in the first few weeks from upload after being on the home page, but then it will significantly decrease once off the home page, if you get on the popular page then of course you’ll have more extended exposure. So if buyers can see your work, more chance of them buying it – it’s as simple as that.
Currently there are popular pages for each category which shows weekly best sellers – this is a great way for authors to get extended exposure and for buyers to find the best weekly sellers in a category.
But down the right hand side there is column to show the all time best selling authors. This is not relevant to the buyer since he’s already chosen to be in a category, and those top authors might not even have items in that category. And this is not useful to the author either in that category and is not going to help them get further sales.
To make these category popular pages more useful to buyers and authors, a solution would be to rather display the monthly top selling items for that category. This will give authors a months extended exposure and will help buyers find more relevant best sellers. A win win for authors and buyers.
Top authors get a huge amount of exposure on this site and their sales show, as the sites grow it’s going to get harder and harder for authors to get noticed, so we need to create new exposure channels to create more opportunities for all authors.
+1 this post if you want more exposure. If we don’t ask for improvements, we won’t get them. And the more authors respond, the more chance Envato will listen.
Thank you – well I thought I’d try to be as active as possible to help people out whenever I can which is quite a rewarding experience because when you know you have helped someone out etc you just end up feeling happy
Here’s my bookmarks which I press open all:
That’s dedication right there! You should work for Envato
I think overall the concept and design is great, but it does look busy, try give more space between content. Logo / name should be more relevant to the content. Maybe try a different layout with those logos / banners in top section of design. Personally what I would do with those different category sections is have them on different colour backgrounds as the headers look a bit lost in the content – this will also keep things looking less busy.
