Boy, it’s been a great year for the Marketplace. When I joined one year ago it had only just begun with a few dozen pieces of content and a handful of sellers. As it stands today, the Marketplace has over 500 pieces of content and over 250 sellers, we’ve gone from five releases per week up to a dozen or more, and the quality bar has gotten higher and higher as more submissions roll in. We’ve seen the community grow and thrive, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with a great number of you to publish your content, answer your questions, and do all I could to help give you the best chance of success on the Marketplace. By every metric, the Marketplace has grown rapidly and steadily over time, and it’s been great to see.
In addition to all of that, I’ve spent a great deal of my time working behind the scenes to improve our internal processes, work with our dev team to create the best tools possible for publishing content, trained a crack team of artistic, technical, and customer support staff that understands the Marketplace inside and out. It’s all coming together now and you’ll see it roll out in the coming months. 2016 holds great promise for the Marketplace’s continued growth, new rollout of tools for buyers and sellers, and more great sales and promotions.
And now that 2015 is drawing to a close, so is the one-year contract I signed with Epic Games. Many of you know that I’m based in New York City and have been working one week per month onsite at Epic HQ in North Carolina to get the Marketplace running smoothly and to position it for longterm success. I’ve accomplished everything I set out to do, and now it’s time for me to move on to my next adventure. Thanks for a great year, everyone! I’ve had a great time, learned a lot, enjoyed being a part of this incredible community of dynamic creatives, and I look forward to seeing how it grows.
For any Marketplace-related questions, either post here on the forums or send an email to email@example.com. They know how to run the show and I trust them completely to continue doing a great job.
See you around!
