Thank you for the reply. Let me take you to school real quick.
There is no way to be original in modern web design as everything has been beaten to death already. There are limited number of elements which any and every website consists of. Those elements are what a web designer works with.
This concept of a landing page guarantees sales.
Also, the true customer, the one that returns and purchase multiple licences, do not seek originality but effectiveness. Have you done your homework, you would come to the conclusion that the concept I submitted is the concept that sells the best and always, regardless of what the trends dictate. This is the very nature of the definition of a ‘template’.
I know this, as I’ve been in the industry for 15 years as a designer, front end and back end developer that specialized in WordPress landing pages.
The header type - contact form, is the type that sells the most. It is a timeless batch concept. I’ve already invested 30+ hours in WordPress conversion of this product, and have a brand new collateral for the item page (HTML version). I also have prepared an extensive online documentation with tuts on every section, 1 by 1, on how to quickly edit each element of the landing page.
This HTML landing page was submitted in order to be soft rejected at first, then expanded and updated, and finally converted to WordPress utilizing all of the advice given during the soft reject / accept phase on the HTML item.
It seems that the reviewers over here get their ‘experience’ from reading Smashing Magazine articles, which is cool, but ultimately insufficient.
The submitted HTML item comes with all working forms and can be put to action with 10 minutes of editing or less.
But hey, if it fell on deaf ears, there’s really not much to be done about it. I’ll just cut my losses and be on my merry way. Hardly my fault.
