Every new object published on CGTrader is reviewed by our team. If it is neatly and professionally made, has informative images and description, we will promote it and give it our rating. CGTrader approved objects always feature at the top of search results. However, if it does not match our standards we leave it intact. Put another way, high quality products will be promoted, while messy and low quality objects will not. It is up to you to choose to make use of this feature or not.
Here are things that interest us the most while reviewing your object:
Preview and Wireframe Images
Preview images are the first and foremost we look at when deciding whether a product is worth promoting. We do this in order to quickly filter out content that is of apparent high quality. Preview images are the easiest way for us to assess your level of competence and talent. If your product catches our attention, we will select it for further evaluation. If we do not promote your product it may be because the images are insufficient or that it is not informative enough. Think of us as customers with a technical background.
Because hidden wireframe images help the customer to see topology and geometry behind nice render, we expect that your object will be accompanied by these. Customers often complain about misinterpreted topology and sometimes use this as a basis for demanding for a refund. So it is in your best interest to add few wireframe images.
Informative and Clear Description
Although it is not the most important thing, item description is a great way to demonstrate how well you can communicate with your potential customers. We understand that English is not everyone’s native language and perhaps your work is so extraordinary that it speaks for itself. But in situations where we are trying to evaluate whether a product meets our customer' high standards, we often look at how much efforts were has been put into describing the product. So don't just write something like:
Cartoon charachter, SMOOTHABLE POLYGON
Instead, take the time to point out advantages of your product that the customer is not able to see in the images. Perhaps the high resolution textures or that the model has been painstakingly UV mapped. Put in some efforts with your text formatting and grammar. Make the customer believe you are serious about bringing value with your products. Remember that an informative and clear description is a good sign that the artist is likely to be more responsive to and attentive with the customer’s needs.
Profile rating and sales volume
Profile rating and sales volume are probably two most important profile values at CGTrader. We use them to identify which artists we can rely on giving promotion. High profile rating is your credibility and it shows that customers are satisfied with your services. While good sales indicate that obviously your products are popular. These two values give us good insight about quality of your content and how responsible you are.
