We’re running a Birthday Sale campaign to celebrate Envato’s 13th Birthday, showcasing a selection of ~400 items including best selling and fresh finds from ThemeForest, GraphicRiver, AudioJungle, CodeCanyon, VideoHive and PhotoDune on a dedicated campaign landing page. This campaign will feature a selection of author-nominated items that are offered at a 30% to 50% discount off their normal sale price.
The campaign landing page will be promoted through Envato’s marketing channels, including on-site promotion, email, social media and affiliates.
Timeline of events
- Tuesday, July 2: We launch the nomination process (you’re reading it right now!)
- Sunday, July 14: Item nominations close. Remember to set your item price before this date.
- Wednesday, July 31: We will inform the authors of selected items and provide more details via email.
- Tuesday, August 13: The campaign begins, and promotional prices are automatically applied to selected items.
- Tuesday, August 20: Promotional campaign ends.
Are there minimum sales requirements for items in this campaign?
No. This campaign does not require minimum sales or ratings for item nominations. Both will factor into our decision on what to feature on the landing page, but there are no sales criteria required to nominate an item.
How do I nominate a Discounted File for this campaign?
Follow the instructions in these threads:
- ThemeForest discount item nominations
- CodeCanyon discount item nominations
- GraphicRiver discount item nominations
- AudioJungle discount item nominations
- VideoHive discount item nominations
- PhotoDune discount item nominations
Can I choose which discount my item will have?
Yes, in the item nomination form you can select either a 30%, 40% or 50% off discount for your nominated item.
Can I nominate more than one item for this campaign?
Yes! You’ll need to fill out the nomination form separately for each item, though.
Can I nominate my item for more than one promotional campaign?
Yes - later this week, we will also be taking item submissions for our Perfect Pairs campaign for Email. You are welcome to nominate the same item for both events - however, be aware that if your item is selected for the Perfect Pairs campaign it will not be included in the Birthday Sale due to the 30-day price change rule.
How and when will I be told if my item(s) are chosen to be on the landing page?
We will contact all authors whose items are selected for promotion on the landing page by Wednesday 31st July. Please note that we will only contact authors whose items have been selected for promotion on our campaign page.
What if I want to withdraw my nomination?
If you’ve changed your mind, please contact us via email@example.com and we will remove your item nomination.
If my item is selected, will it remain on the landing page throughout the entire promotion?
Probably! We’ll be periodically reviewing the page to make sure we’re putting our best foot forward in promoting great deals for our customers. Items which don’t meet the promotional criteria will be automatically removed from the promotion (but will of course remain for sale on Envato Market), plus to maintain a cohesive ‘look and feel’ we reserve the right to add or remove items from the landing page for any reason in our sole discretion.
Will you add more items during the sale?
We occasionally need to add new items during a promotion, if other items have been removed from the landing page. If we need to add additional items during the campaign, we’ll select these from eligible items on the main campaign nomination list, and contact the authors via their Envato Market email address. We’ll aim to provide at least 24 hours notice to these authors.
How are items selected?
All items nominated must meet the criteria selection on the nomination threads. Items for the promotional page will then be chosen by the Envato Marketing team.
Who is responsible for changing the price of items?
All item prices will be automatically changed at the beginning of the Campaign sale, between 10am and 2pm (AEST) on 13th August 2019.
After the promotion ends, you may want to leave a discount in place, manually return the item’s price to its original level, or set a different price altogether. As with all pricing decisions under our Author-Driven Pricing policy, that’s entirely up to you.
