Hello everyone! We have a way and place to help authors market and promote any deals they are currently running on their Envato Market items. We’re calling it:
What is it?
It’s a place in the customer-facing section of our forums where authors can announce and promote any current discounts or deals they are currently running on their Envato Market items. We will actively monitor what is posted and curate/promote some of the discounts you share by featuring them more prominently on the Deals & Discounts page.
What can I post?
To begin with, we’re starting small with the following Envato Market sites/categories:
We hope to initiate more places for other Envato Market sites and categories in the near future. But for now, we’re focusing on one category to monitor how it works so we canrefine and improve along the way where necessary.
How do I take part?
Read the requirements before you post.
- Read our FAQs.
- Prepare your post according to the instructions.
- Post your Deals & Discounts to one of the following threads:
We look forward to helping you to raise awareness of your items and discounts directly to customers.
When Author will be able to change the discount price to original price? Anytime when Author want to change or the discount price should be for the full month (30 Days)
Hey @mgscoder! Pricing is always determined at the sole discretion of the author of the item so it can be changed any time the author chooses.
To provide additional context to the specific “Deals & Discounts” opportunity: We will have separate/new threads per calendar month (a new/separate one in March for example), and we may choose not to feature/highlight any expired promotions in case that causes confusion to customers. But just to re-emphasize again, authors always control the price and timing of pricing, it’s their responsibility and prerogative.
So a quick summary:
- Authors always set and maintain the price of items.
- Anything posted to “Deals & Discounts” we can feature/promote it at the top of the thread if we wish.
- We reserve the right to remove something that we promoted at the top of the thread if the discount has expired.
- Authors with due diligence may wish to remove their promotional announcements/posts themselves if they know their discount has expired.
Hope this helps!
Hi @scottwills great and hopefully this will be very useful to promote items.
Please note your posts have been removed as you did not provide everything we asked for. Please read our instructions very carefully and make sure your post meets all our requirements. All posts must look the same as per our instructions. Please try posting again. Many thanks!
I made the same like others?
Why is flagged?
I didn’t promote, just like I saw that others made.
Where is wrong or how you want to be?
@payothemes Compare your post here to our instructions (and what everyone else has posted). Many thanks!
I forgot banner promo, but in rest is like in instructions, nothing wrong
to be flagged, no?
Got it, I edit and publish, i think is ok now. Thanks.
@scottwills Where I can see the Deals and Discounts Page? Is it live?
Edit: I just saw its just a forum post? There’s is no dedicated page which links from the market? We all know, not every customers check these forums. I thought it was a special page like what CM does. They did it in the right way.
A forum post is a bad choice for this. So please consider atleast when you go live with all type of items.
@surjithctly Thanks for the feedback! Looks like you found the link (which is here if anyone else needs it). Having it on Market would be ideal for sure. There’s a lot of automation that could be done to make it work. Right now though there are no current plans to integrate it directly into Market but we’re doing it in the forums as a trial and to give more value to our forums for our customers. We’ll keep evaluating how it works with a view to refine along the way.
