zero… 4 cups of green tea tho
Just my perspective… all the milestones set by Envato are for the benefit of Envato itself. They make announcements and posts for the marketplace’s promotion – indirectly. They know that 25 Million milestone is not something possible for next 5 years (or even impossible) but they will have such thing on showcase for a delusional encouragement – raise the image of marketplace. This is why a common milestone is useless – artificial. If your own goal is even small and you managed to achieve, that’s the great thing. Share it with family, friends and community. They may understand better than a marketplace bureaucracy.
But this is not about 25 million milestones, this is about 1 million mile stones – and for any author achieving this, it should be celebrated as it takes a lot of hard work to get there. The main issue is lack of consistency from Envato, namely in the past every new power elite received site wide acknowledgement and this would also help boost their exposure, also this promotion is one of the milestone rewards. So for Envato to not give the same acknowledgement and promotion to current and future power elites is unfair and also not honoring what is outlined in the rewards program. How much promotion did the first power elites get and how much did that impact their success to date? Point is, any power elite should get the same opportunities and rewards as outlined by the site.
It’s a pity, Envato’s priorities seem to be focused on their own needs at the moment. Although lots of interviews / videos about the company though
Congrats, you guys have been busy!
only 1 sale for Monday, but then I realized it’s a holiday in US so that’s probably why
@Collis: is there any way we can get “back” a simple Statement, which shows (only) exactly how much we actually earned (after all fees and what-not)? Now, even if we use the “sales” filter, it still shows the amount before author fee gets deducted; statement page is cluttered with 2x”items sold” number of lines which are basically useless on their own because they just repeat and could easily fit in a single column in the table, instead of taking up row after row… Also, it became a part of the data available in API, so third-party tools we use are also becoming cluttered and unusable. Any chance to see some improvement on this?
This might be a bit tricky because of the way the statement page has been designed in the system. We’ll see what we could do, especially with respect to linking through to the API – as I think this is the kind of view that is best done by an API tool.
I’m sure it’s tricky… The only reason why the statement page looks the way it is now is so it appears that Authors receive the full amount from buyer first, and then Author fee is deducted, so I can see why Envato is reluctant to make it similar to the old statement page.
Thing is site in question does not only sell my theme. It sells themes from all ThemeForest authors. Therefore sending a single DMCA and ignoring that site is stupid and irresponsible.
So this site is actually selling the themes? I agree Envato Help (formerly known as Envato Support ) could be less casual about these types of things, would be in their interests to be more proactive.
As the copyright owner, you need to send the DMCA to the website in question, Envato can’t really do anything as it’s not their work, but could probably assist takedown once you have sent the DMCA. Good luck!
I’ve recently became Full Time with Envato, Do you have any advice for me?
- Set strict goals, for example – upload one item every month
- Monitor sales religiously, set sales target plan for next 6 months and track progress
- Save money as back up for low sales months
- Stay focused – don’t spent too much time on Envato forums (I’m guilty of this)
- Still interact with people in real life to avoid going crazy
