My landing page template was rejected for 3rd or 4th time I believe, of course with no reason. That was never happening with my other items so I’m quite confused
Comparing with the other items accepted in landing page category I really don’t see how they are better, I don’t want to post links to others people work as they may be offended but just take a look at 6-7 randomly selected items
Here is my link, you can see there are actually 4 different layouts which, again, few of the accepted items are offering:
p.s. there are 5 more color variation (again, something that is not offered by many other items), I’m linking to this one as I like it most:-)
I don’t think it’s all that bad. It seems you didn’t really put as much work into the areas below the fold as you move down the page. You can always email the reviewers and ask if they can give you more information. Many people don’t really take the time to do that, but they seem to be nice guys for the most part, and they can tell you what sucks about it if you want ... and they’re the ones that approve or deny, so it’s good to know what they think sucks.
You can always email the reviewers and ask if they can give you more information.
actually I can’t, I’ve sent at least 3 emails asking about that – only one reply saying “oh, I see I already rejected it, I hope that helps:-)”. Since I was updating it every 2 days and submitting it again…
Only Mark replied and he said that he thinks it’s very nice but too complex for a landing page, so I simplified. Which brings me your comment about focusing above the fold – this is landing page and this is the important place

1) The review message actually does state why it was rejected. Many authors seem to think that a general rejection message doesn’t actually state why it was rejected, but it actually does. It doesn’t, however, point out specific reasons justifying the decision, which isn’t necessarily what reviewers do.
2) In the support ticket I asked if you had any additional questions, so the one reply you said you received with the response you stated was inaccurate. I see you’ve responded to the ticket so I’ll answer your questions here shortly.
3) Keep in mind that the creator of something will almost always be biased towards it in comparison to other items. We don’t allow comparison of items to justify approval, so please try to avoid doing that.
I’ll jump over and respond to your support ticket question(s) now. Thanks!
The only thing that I can see is on http://byseal.com/landing/purple/index1.html the bottom padding of the box wrapping the form is abit low compared to the other sides
Thanks, I will look at it!
However I don’t think that can be a deal brake reason or at least a simple note from the reviewer would be present in the email…
Im pretty sure jarel (jremick) will help you out
- Headings and paragraphs underneath are not aligned properly. Same for the footer headings.
- The Newsletter submit button’s rusty style doesn’t match the overall template style (for a one-page landing template two different button styles are too much).
- Some hover/active interaction on the Register button would be nice.
- I believe the bokeh background effect is already too overused and…
- ... such a background is not very suitable for a “get-our-product” landing page. It implies a different mood.
- Putting a real-world logo might be a problem. Not all client logos are transparent + contrast would be a problem.
- Some thoughts on aligning: The description part is divided into two columns and the footer – into three. Although there’s another block between them, they do fight each other a bit (I do notice that the footer columns are aligned with the Register container, but still…). Maybe think about better dividing/alignment, or at least make the footer columns look equal in width (I think they are equal indeed in terms of math, but they don’t create that feeling).
- About the description part – specifically the “Read more…” link: What if for one of the four paragraphs the sentence goes all the way to the end, so that “Read more…” link falls down to the next row? I believe putting the link below is a better option, to ensure a more consistent look for the real-world content.
Also, the icons before the headings are not aligned with the leftmost edge.
Overall the template is nice.
thanks for the feedback
I’m afraid though most of the points are not valid, especially in the alignment part Also the 2 columns/3columns is a very used approach The logo could actually be missing like in the most landing pages or be part of the main banner. Or it could be a sentence/word. I agree it wouldn’t work in ANY logo You are right about the read more, it can move to a next line, although I don’t believe it’s a problem
