If you are a good programmer and have lots of time on your hand, Envato has just released a brand new e-commerce tool to help coders around the world make more money during their spare time. The latest release to its marketplace family, CodeCanyon is a website where subscribed users have the chance to submit plugins or snippets of code and have them promoted and sold on one of the world's biggest web-related marketplaces.
As time passed by, more and more members started submitting simple jQuery plugins, PHP scripts and CSS tools. While their numbers grew, Envato management thought it would be a good idea in expanding its current services to a wider base of users. After releasing 3DOcean into beta, a couple of days ago, the team announced the official coming out of beta for the 3D graphics-inclined marketplace.
In just two days, the website quickly climbed in traffic rankings from the #5,356,824 position (first recorded by Alexa), to a current #2,481,660. Judging by the fact that most of Envato's marketplaces rank between the #1,000 and #10,000, it is anticipated that CodeCanyon would get the same kind of exposure and traffic.
Meanwhile, some troop movement took place in Envato's management structure, the former Marketplace Manager, Cyan Ta'eed (with whom we had a very lovely chat
two months ago), will now be Marketing Manager. Jason Ellis will take Cyan's place as Marketplace supervisor.
Some screenshots of the new Envato marketplace are presented below.
