I have noticed that illustrations are not selling like they used to years ago. The sales of artwork from 2009-2014 were significantly higher. If you look at the best sellers within the past year, the most sales were only 11! Clearly something has changed in the marketing/algorithm. I haven’t inspected other categories in detail so I am not sure if sales have tanked in those areas aswell. Can someone please provide some insight as to why this is happening?
Envato Elements !
woah, I was completely unaware about Envato Elements! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I just applied!
11 years have passed since 2009. There are more and more items on the market every year. Of course, competition is growing year by year
@romlam congrats for your 5K sales buddy
hi this is quite a very elementary explanation that u were given in a way as all depends on your personal efforts indeed, what @romlam said is definitely true, the market has definitely changed, there are way more guys in town and way more items , too , though sales are obviously being impacted too but the fact of the matter is that all this, apart from Envato Elements are not explaining anything directly … the fact of the matter is that according to such a saturated market , u are more and more expected to get noticed by yourself by potential customers and to do so , u are demanded to promote your work by yourself wherever u can , plus , something that a lot of people fail to mention, indeed, if u are the kind of guy to post occasionally some new items, this is a very significant reason for u to have way more trouble than in the past to sell. Focusing on quality, originality and posting on regular basis is not an option nowadays, this is mandatory
Haha! You didn’t forget that I was also close. Thank you mate
yes sure but this time the target is reached … lol
