Please, please I beg you that we do not return to this, please re-read everything that I already wrote before. To understand how this process works, I must have data, statics, all that Envato has. I do not have this and you have not it as well, thus in this matter, we can push away from only those data/words that Envato provides and in the words of the authors from Elements and already only on the basis of this we can draw conclusions. Or do you want to say that Envato is deceiving us all and we cannot act on the information that they provide? If you think this information is correct, then I don’t understand why you should be against my idea.
I put together the words Envato and the words of the authors of Elements and it turns out that Envato is right and the banner does not affect the main customers of the market and attracts only a new type of customers. Proceeding from this logic, all who have their works on Elements should not be afraid to place such a button in their items, because it will only attract a new type of buyers who don’t want to pay more.
But now, when I see that you are against such a button, I can not understand why. If the author deliberately adds his work for sale at a cheaper price, why should he be against that people will know about it? Please imagine the feelings of customers when someone buys something with a higher price and then he finds out that this author with the help of the same company, sells several times cheaper. You gave an example of a supermarket, good. Imagine you scored a full basket of products in this supermarket and gave $300 for it, but it turns out this store has another entrance and if you entered through it you could buy all these products for $30. If you will not deceive yourself and honestly will imagine such a situation, then I am sure you will be very upset by the big loss of money.
Thus, expressing your protest about this button/link you want to keep such a row of things, but this is slyness towards buyers. Therefore, my idea is designed to help everyone, and the authors of the Elements, since they decided to add their work to the Elements and make money on a new type of customers, and to help Envato direct advertising more targetly attract new subscribers, and to help customers, and authors who outside Elements.
Of course, I don’t like this banner and I wrote about it other threads, but Envato ignores my words. Therefore, I am not struggling with this banner, but I propose to make the model more efficient for everyone. If you think that it will not be effective specifically for you authors from Elements, and if you think Envato is not right when says that Elements is intended for a new type of customer and it does not affect sales in the main market, then what is your logic to place there your projects at a lower price? Is your logic simply to take advantage of the ignorance of buyers? Is it what your attitude to people who buy your goods? In my opinion, this is a very strange approach. But in any case, we have to understand that gradually all buyers will learn about this market where you sell cheaper and then there will be no difference whether this button is there or not. But if you place this button now you will show great respect for your customers.
