FAQs

What if I want to withdraw my nomination?
If you’ve changed your mind, simply flag your nomination comment and let us know that you want to withdraw your item from consideration.

How are items selected?
All items nominated must meet the criteria selection listed above. Items for the promotional will then be chosen by the Envato Marketing team.

Who is responsible for changing the price of items?

Under our Author-Driven Pricing rules, it will (as always) be up to the author to decide whether you leave a discount in place after the promotion ends, manually return the item price to its original level, or set a different price altogether. As with all pricing decisions, that’s entirely up to you.

@BenLeong Hi Ben! Did the campaign already start? Because we are not seeing an increase in pageviews, in fact, our pageviews peak of the month was before the campaign even started.

Are you planning to promote them in a banner fashion, like the elements ones on top of the markets? Because, for now, it doesn’t seem that the promotion is paying off.

Thanks!

My project is also involved in this campaign and there is complete silence … :confused: A little more than usual pagviews and nothing else … Sales did not even start. What is going on? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Hi @Odin_Design & @_miko!

The campaign has started, but there’s still a lot more promotion to go. For this campaign, each email directly features some of the sale items, and links to collection pages for the others in that category. The first email showed 16 of the items, with another 4 featured in a seasonal email due out tomorrow.

The second half of the items (including both of yours) will be featured in the reminder email (“only 48hrs remaining!”), which typically gets similar sales to the launch email.

Same here. In the first mail my item was the first track in the music part of mail. Which gave me big pageviews boost and… one sale.

Same here. I’ve got only 1 sale :thinking:

Congratulations, I have only 0 sales …
I have participated in several promotions, but something so bad has never been like this.

Congratulations, I have 12 Sales
Thank you!
