What happened to this place? I mean i get it, Elements has all Envato’s focus, but really - traffic on ThemeForest’s new items this low?!
I get this new category layout converts more for Envato, and it does make a lot of sense to have it, but come on guys, you really dumped new items barely giving a chance to gain a steady exposure.
I know i have a strong and competitive item. I know for sure it’s at least as better as the top selling items, not to mention other new items. But it barely has a few tens of visitors (a half of these visitors are probably existing buyers).
It’s super frustrating to see my item ignored and other less competitive items being “handpicked”, “top”, “rising” etc.
My philosophy when i worked on this item, especially when i saw the category page changes was - ok, do the right thing, make your item great and the rest will follow.
Due to this unfair low traffic, this week i barely got 1 sale. I cannot support myself with this income and inevitably have to abandon a perfectly good competitive product (which again is much attractive and better than most dinosaur bestselling items).
Please Envato, show more respect for new items by actually checking them and if they’re worthy, promote them. You win, author wins, customer wins.
