Thanks for all the feedback so far! Please keep it coming, and I’ll share them with the rest of the team.
Alternatively, if you’d like to give more detailed feedback you can fill out this quick survey. The Hub team are looking for feedback on all parts of the site, and they’re particularly interested in hearing about how the Trends information is used - is it useful in the current format? What would you like to see more of?
@UiCore Sorry for the confusion - that dashboard currently only displays for authors selling on Elements (it was originally built to contain their earnings reports, as Elements doesn’t have the same author dashboard pages as Market). In the articles that link to it, we can update the text to make that clearer.
@SoundStormLabs @nurubash Good to hear! I hope it’s useful for you.
@LumenMedia Thanks! The header on the hub currently doesn’t show information specific to each viewer - we may be able to do that in future (e.g. links to the upload tools and dashboards that are specific to each author’s account), but currently it’s a universal header for all users.
@Sweet-finger The top of the Trends page just shows the last month, in order to keep the focus on new changes in customer demand. These can change quickly, so we’d like to make sure you can stay on top of big new topic areas as they emerge.
Top New Items is a good reference for the types of new items that are performing well, instead of looking at the all-time bestsellers. It shows the kinds of new breakthrough items that are being well received by customers this month.
Top Search Opportunities is a bit different - instead of the overall search volume, it’s specifically showing searches that have high customer demand and relatively few items. That helps identify the niches where a new item can fill that customer demand, instead of having your new item get lost amongst thousands of similar items.
Other timeframes are useful in different ways - for example, the Show me what to create section at the bottom of that page will show upcoming events for a three-month period. Those recommendations are informed by our customer and search data from previous years, highlighting major events that we get a lot of demand for.
