We are happy to announce that we reached Level 7 Elite badge on April-'19. It’s not easy for us & I know it’s not easy for any other Elite Authors.
The journey started in 2014 & we stick with Envato & produce the quality products. We have seen lots of up & down during this timeline.
What did we learn? & What novice Authors care most to become successful?
- Stick with current market statistics
- Always do R&D & make a plan accordingly
- Do quality work instead of quantity
- Customer Support & their Review/Ratings makes a lot of impact on product sales.
- Do analysis & get inspired by other Authors work
- Stick with a particular category(s) where you are perfect
- Always get yourself or (team) updated with Technolgy & update your products too.
- Do frequently participate in Envato Forum - Their you find lots of solutions, news, inspiration & motivations from customers & Authors too.
- Copycat strategies - Do not copy any Authors work, make sure Envato knows everything
Challenges I face
- New technology adaption - Technolgy updated every year & we must learn & adapt it to our product.
- Envato marketplace changes - Author Driven Pricing, New Category page design change, New Item upload restrictions.
Thank you, team Envato for all of this.
