Hi @dzeriho! Sorry, it has to be from the contest launch date onwards I’m afraid.

Hi everyone!

This contest is a great opportunity for authors to improve their design, big thanks Envato for that!

With resourses of this thread I updated my profiles homepage and planned to update all of my items.
I used combination of 3 GraphicTemplates from the contest:

  1. Envato Mountain Climber Kit Presentation by Elfsight
  2. Template by Pinquitte
  3. Template by dootdorin
    and provide some simple changes to them.
    I’m not a designer so I hope it looks good:)

Item Page Before:

Item Page After:

As you can see, I replaced information about music pack with picture and removed text link to the recomendated track. I made that because when item shows in search result (in Google, for example) potential client didn’t see description with important keywords.
If you has similar situation in your items description I strongly recommendated to do the same thing :slight_smile:

Also I added “Browse By Category” menu, I hope it will be useful for potentional clients.

Thanks for your attention and good luck!

Have a nice day!

Hi there,

It’s xplovibe09 (author mostly on AudioJungle but also on CodeCanyon)

http://codecanyon.net/item/dropbox-with-javascript-ajax-file-uploader-and-animated-progress-bar/15116433

my item preview (before)

my item preview(after)

I’m trying to maintain in my product pages a good balance between the hosted graphical images and the keywords, so the user browsing the item page can both see a beautiful page containing screenshots or other images, but also keep the whole item page indexable for a lot of keyword searches and sometimes niches.

thanks for reading!

good luck to the other participants as well,
i’m sure there are some pretty well written item pages out there :smiley:
