Envato is considered one of the world’s leading creative communities. They are the most reliable marketplace for all kinds of superior creative elements, including graphic items, web elements and design, stock images, 3D files, audio files, and scripts. This great community is rising very fast – I’m sure you can attest to that.
What interests me most is that the Envato Inspection Team is very serious and careful when it comes to file approval. They only consider high quality and highly needed files. They don’t want to clutter the Envato marketplace – they want to make sure that any item purchased from Envato will serve the buyer well.
If you are an author who submitted a carefully created file and all of a sudden it was rejected, you shouldn’t feel bad. There may not be anything wrong with your file, but Envato Support’s intention for the denial is to help you improve your skill and creativity. A good number of professional authors have experienced such a turn-out, including me.
What that makes you a serious-minded designer is if you are able to reach your peak despite how many times you have failed. Those who have achieved a successful portfolio understand Envato’s principles. Do you? To achieve a successful portfolio there are certain techniques you must apply.
Bear in mind that you may have a portfolio with hundreds of files, but they may not be successful. Someone with only 20 files can make more money than someone who has over 100 items. The reviewer will approve your item once it is up to standard and the complexity is high, but there may be few people in the world that are desperately in need of such an item, resulting in few sales.
But if your item is what I will like to call ‘A Popular Demand File’, you will make more sales than you could ever imagine. How is that possible? I will show you.
