Protecting Your Copyright 004

We all know that piracy can feel like a major problem for those who create digital content. Content owners, like our Marketplaces authors, have different philosophical approaches to the piracy issue. Some seek to fight all piracy they come across, some want to find ways to motivate users of content to pay for it, and some choose to focus on what they do sell and not change the ways of users who want all their content for free. Ultimately, this is your personal choice (and there’s more below on the path Envato takes on the piracy issue). Continue Reading

4K Stock Footage: When 1080p Just Doesn’t Cut It

4K stock Footage

4K video is the future, but should I care today? I’ve noticed a few 4K TVs around, but I can’t afford them. And most of the channels on Foxtel (for the non Aussie folks, they are the primary pay TV provider around this part of the world) aren’t even HD yet! If you are after a very basic explanation of what 4K is, then it’s nothing more than content having horizontal resolution in the order of 4,000 pixels. You can already pick up 4K stock footage and reveals on VideoHive. I caught up with some of the authors about why I should care about the 4K hype.

5 Reasons You Will Love Unbounce. Reason #3 Is My Favorite

why use unbounce

As a marketer, I cringe every time I hear, “If you build it, they will come.” I am not sure how the phrase came to be. The closest reference is from the 1989 film entitled Field of Dreams. While walking through the cornfield, Ray Kinsella hears a voice whispering, “If you build it, he will come.”

Marketing is essential to getting the word out about you product to potential customers, and in the online world you will usually use your marketing prowess to send those visitors to your website. Now, you (as the product owner) have only one job to focus on when they land on your website: How do you convert that visitor to a customer? Your best bet is to make sure the visitor lands on a landing page.

Be sure to check out Oli Gardner’s post on the effectiveness of landing pages to learn more on the topic. The Unbounce blog is also a great source of information if you want to learn more on conversion and landing pages.
