Just curious and interested in other’s thoughts.
There is no proof but…
There’s lots of opportunity to promote yourself by helping customers, particularly in the Project Making section. The forums are also a great place to come to learn from other authors [read articles] on how to become a better author (http://community.envato.com) and participate in competitions.
All of these things absolutely help with sales.
Yes. If you’re nice to it, it will make a purchase when you’re asleep.
Not sure if a positive presence on the forum can help much with sales, but forum posts full of negativity or regular moaning probably do more damage than good in this regard.
…and here’s a smile: (these little yellow things can do wonders to set the tone of a post; be it a happy or critical one).
(Of course, I’m not pointing to your own entries; many of them are very spirited and funny, actually)
I agree with Matthew regarding the forums being a good place to learn from other authors.
I think the question is "Does sales help with forum?
no )))) not not ))) I do not know )))))
Direct buyer effect: Absolutely 0.
Indirect effect by staff picking you to get featured: absolutely possible.
Ago it might help to sell love jujus and fake passports.
