GraphicRiver is a digital marketplace where people can go to sell stock images, logos, and designs that they have created as a hobby, as a means of promoting themselves, or even as a way to earn a full time income.
GraphicRiver is a subsidiary of Envato, who claims their mission is to help people “earn and learn online.” They operate marketplaces where “hundreds of thousands” of people buy and sell digital goods every day, as well as a network of educational blogs which help people learn creative skills.
Envato says that the top authors on their marketplaces can earn between $20,000 and $50,000 per month selling their stock image, and it is free to create an account on any of their websites.
How to Upload content on GraphicRiver?
First, you need to create an Envato account(this works for all marketplace) by simply signing up. Then, there is a MCQ based test one needs to pass in order to publish their content. This is related to the Rules and Conditions of the Marketplace and is pretty easy(yes! you can guess all of the answers).
You can then upload content to your portfolio. This item can be a kick ass logo, a psd party flyer, a tee shirt design, a mock up template etc. Either through FTP or their uploader, you can put up your files to the marketplace.
You then have to wait for a reviewer to review you design and if he/she approves your idea, the item gets published and you are notified via email. Normally this takes up to 7 days though there is no guarantee. Also, the price of your item is set according to the marketplace rates.
