During the six months on Envato I see one serious mistake , which I already wrote on the forums. Featured categories consist tracks which are actually pretty same genre - upbeat, corporate, ukulele stuff, etc. This looks a bit unfair from my pov.
Do we all have to work in the same genre and overload the market in hope to finally boost our career and as a result kill the market and variety of choice? I do not think so.
Instead, I think Envato should create different variations of featured items by genre category. I know that this might looks risky, because Envato stuff analyzing incoming traffic and so on, but here is mine conception.
Just creat same page as “Popular items” page. Every week put a few files (3-6) from different categories in the list.
-Different variatiots of audio, mobility of choice.
-Author support, everyone can do the best in his niche.
-Pretty fair system, instead of one-genre page.
-A bit risky system, I am sure that Envato is not ready to do such a thing
-Buyers can not just listen stuff quick and purchase it. Instead they have to do a few button clicks
-A bit much work for Envato reviewers.
What do you think guys?
