First, let me introduce myself. Im a fulltime designer from The Netherlands. I Didnt see many from The Netherlands btw.
In my spare time I love to keep working, so instead of keep buying things, I want to contribute also to the community.
1. Im wondering a few things, what is % of rejections do you have?
To start, I submited my first file few days ago for try out. (flyer) And got back, we have enough already of this type and style, please adjust. After some reading in the forums and I read this is pretty normal for the flyer area. So anyhow I started of with new concept and uploaded it (in line now). But I was wondering what can I expect in the rejections % when submiting to populair files area?
2. I would love to design other things then flyers, (already submited also another file to Web Elements) But Im not really encouraged when I look at the sales at other areas. Is this just me?
3. I ready in the forums about Soft Rejection, what does this mean?
Hi and welcome
I’m also fairly new here. I have submitted to files and I have two accepted. however I had to resubmit the second one because it was lacking detail, which in retrospect I fully agree with.
Both our web elements. I think the quality is there and if there’s not hundreds of files of the same type already then you are pretty safe.
As you noticed in the flyers area there are more rejections. I can’t really comment much on that because I do not design any flyers.
Soft rejections are when Your design and work is okay but there’s something missing from the submission. Maybe one file doesn’t open, maybe you didn’t include a proper actor format, maybe something is corrupted … Something of that kind.
As to amount of sales: indeed, very few of us and graphic River will get rich off what we do if you look around CodeCanyon for example you can see people earning much more money. So I do this for the love of doing it, like you, not the rich … But of course a little earner on the side would be nice
Thanks for your reply.
I just read the infographic from Envato btw and it says more then 50% of the files on Graphicriver are rejected. I really didnt thought that!
That is a lot indeed!
On the other hand if you see some of the items people submit the number become somewhat more relative. A lot of things simply aren’t up to scratch…
I think if you look sit and look back to your design closely and think for a second what could be more you can add to design or what need the changes then we can easily find out the mistakes ?
Rejection is not the most important thing that need to care about but why got rejected is important to find out the mistakes.
When I got rejected, I have always tried to find out the reasons and also try to differentiate between my item and another item (chosen from gr). And also asked my self a que. would i like to buy this ?
Hi there Malinerick,
I don’t know what happens in the flyers section (in fact I can’t really say I know much overall as I am quite a newbie here) but I submitted 18 items so far and got 0% of rejections.
Stupid luck? Or maybe something else… (like “quality”, “demand” and stuff kekeke). I don’t know.
Anyway. Good luck with sales mate. Je maintiendrai
