Вчера поздно вечером, пришло письмо, про то, что Креатив Маркет закрывает свою площадку Про с 30 ноября и все силы планирует бросить на Креатив Маркет.
В письме еще упоминаются кастомные лицензии, но написано слишком размыто, чтобы делать какие-то выводы. Полный текст:
Thank you so much for the interest you've shown in becoming a Creative Market Pro shop owner. We've poured our hearts into building this new platform to help shop owners reach new customers and earn additional income. But, we've now made the difficult decision to close down Creative Market Pro on November 30th. We'll be simplifying our product line and focusing all our efforts on creating an even better overall experience for our shop owners and customers on CreativeMarket.com.
Focusing on CreativeMarket.com
From day one at Creative Market, our goal has been to help shop owners find increased success, helping them grow their customer base and increase their earnings so they can make a living doing what they love. We decided to close Creative Market Pro because we believe it will increase opportunities for shop owners, as we're able to turn all our attention to CreativeMarket.com, rather than split our focus across two separate marketplaces. We've learned a lot through the feedback we've gathered around Creative Market Pro, and we plan to apply those learnings to improve CreativeMarket.com in ways that will significantly increase earnings and customers for our entire shop owner community.
Custom License Deals — Increased Exposure and Meaningful Income
We built Creative Market Pro to help shop owners generate revenue from new types of customers, but we've learned that we can actually help our shop owners capture many of these customers on CreativeMarket.com by helping negotiate and close custom licensing opportunities that potential customers send your way. That's why, starting today, we're offering a brand new Custom License service, where we can take the burden of negotiating these custom deals off your plate by crafting agreements that are fair and valuable.
If you're ever contacted about a custom license like this, please feel free to reach out to our team here. We'd love to use our resources to put together contracts that allow you to pursue these opportunities with confidence!
Thank you again for all you've done to support Creative Market over the last year! We appreciate your willingness to try new things and explore opportunities.
