As a tech guy, I tend to collect way too much “stuff,” whether it be the latest iPhone case, or some other random tech gadget that I impulsively bought on Kickstarter. My wife is making me get rid of some of the things that I hardly use, and so I started my quest to find a good way to make some cash selling it. I could go the eBay route, but that takes too much time and it is such a hassle for smaller things. I could also use Craigslist, but you just never know what kind of people you will find on there.
Then the other day I got an invite to try out Tangibles, which I forgot I had signed up for a while back. They just launched and I decided to give it a spin to see if it would be worth my time. We did a review of Yard Sale, which is somewhat similar, but I didn’t get many hits there, so I decided to give this one a try to see if I could have more luck getting rid of my stuff. (more…)
I was a big fan of Envato long before I began writing for AppStorm. One of my favorite aspects of the Envato network is the Envato Marketplaces, where I’ve been an author for quite a while. The Envato Marketplaces serve as both an excellent way for designers, developers and musicians to make a little extra income as well as pick up a few quick resources. This ever-growing network of sites includes ThemeForest, ActiveDen, AudioJungle, VideoHive, GraphicRiver, 3DOcean and CodeCanyon.
As an Envato Marketplace author, you frequently have to stop by a site to check in on your earnings, comments, etc. Recently, Envato released an API for the marketplaces that has led to a sudden crop of awesome apps allowing you to perform this task right on your iPhone. Below we’ll take a look at all the apps currently available for marketplace authors so you can decide which is right for you.
For four years the Envato Marketplaces have helped authors around the world earn an income selling their digital wares. Along the way we’ve grown from one marketplace to seven, with more on the way. We’ve gone from hundreds of members to hundreds of thousands. Items from our marketplaces have appeared in projects for companies big and small, all around the world. And most importantly of all, we’ve had thousands of authors cash out earnings, ranging from a bit of money for a big weekend to sums in the tens of thousands of dollars a month!
It’s been an amazing ride, and here at Envato along with our commitment to growing AppStorm, we are completely committed to making our marketplaces the best around. That’s why I’m very excited today to announce that as of the end of September we are rolling out some dramatically improved rates for all our exclusive authors! (more…)
