We’ve just published our latest Public Impact Statement, covering high-level information about what Envato has been up to over the last year.
2022 was a very big year for many people in our community, particularly with so many of our authors located in Ukraine and Russia. We’ve also seen a lot of changes right across our industry, and within Envato. The economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic have dramatically affected our marketplaces during 2020 and 2021, but we saw less impact from these during 2022.
Elements has become the primary focus for Envato, with the whole company shifting in mid 2022 to orient around new growth plans for that platform. We now have over 10 million items in the Elements content library, with over 500k active subscribers. We’ll be sharing more later this year about how we’re working to attract new customers, particularly in fast-growing customer segments like Video.
Envato Market saw 25 authors join the ranks of the Power Elite community during 2022, each passing $1M in total sales. 12 authors hit even higher sales milestones, with five $2M authors, three $5M authors, and two even managing to reach $10M in lifetime sales. We also saw 136 new Elite authors achieve their first $75k in sales on Envato Market, with 418 authors celebrating various Elite milestones during the year.
