Part Five of our Get Started Guide is about understanding all the different ways Envato Authors like yourselves can begin interacting, supporting and getting involved in the community.
Community is about connecting with other like-minded people - those with similar or diverse experiences, stories, skills and lessons learned. Some of the most successful businesses are those that have have understood the value of a good network, healthy collaboration, and harnessing a strong sense of belonging as part of their strategy.
Having your own business can sometimes be a lonely or isolating experience. The great thing about online communities is how generous and open many are, and the ways in which they can inspire, motivate and help us all understand what's going on in our industries.
Here are the channels available to you as an exclusive Envato Elements author:
We have a special private forum just for Elements authors where you can meet others in our community and ask your Elements specific questions. You will be able to access this once your items have been made available on the Elements library.
Pro Tip: Once you're able to access the private Elements forums group,
don’t forget to reach out and say hello to your fellow community members. 👋
