Right now, the best form of appreciation other than a purchase is either a positive comment or a high rating.
Thank you everyone! ^^
I want to thank everyone who chose to use the items I made! I’m so pleased that my sounds are useful to so many people, especially to reach 200 sales.
I’ll be sure to send more on the way, so keep your eyes open for them!
I don’t think I’ve ever been hurt by the corporate bundle, probably because I make sound effects.
When I learn something new or get a magic idea that I want to try out.
I think this value should be visible and also authors could be classified by that value! buyers could reach great designers even if they’ve a few items…
Envato wants authors to produce items like fire hose. Just blasting out huge amounts at passable quality. It’s no surprise most authors have very low sales ratios.Envato has no emphasis on authors producing just a few well-maintained items, and monetizing that kind of effort. It’s backwards because “super products” are very likely the majority of their revenue and a huge missed opportunity for recurring revenue.
This, and to add my own opinion, I believe people should create an identity out of their work in the process. I know Envato is a stock media website, but I think we could all benefit from putting ourselves into our work, so to speak. What’s more important to me when designing sounds is not the money, although that’s important, but the satisfaction that comes when you make something truly spectacular that people respect and appreciate. Something that is unique to you and your style, which you thoroughly enjoyed making.
One thing I’m sure some of us are curious about (at least I am) when studying other authors is the number of sales they have in proportion to the size of their portfolio.
On average, my sales are 2-3 times the size of my portfolio. Now I’ve seen some people that only have a few items in their portfolio but they’re selling like magic. Another thing I’m curious to know is how are the sales distributed throughout the portfolio? Are the sales relatively the same for each item? Or do some really excel while others sell only once or twice if at all?
