Anps saidI haven’t hit the Jackpot too as you can see by my overall number of sales
Don’t get me wrong I am in love in this community, but if you don’t have a bit of luck hitting the jackpot… then this becomes just a side earning and that’s not my goal.
But, between a Jackpot and being just a side earning there’s a big distance and I’m happy to be on that fringe these last months. And I think that a problem for a large number of complaining authors (and in this case I’m not referring to any of your previous comments) is that they haven’t hit any Jackpot yet… But, beware: I’m always working for a Jackpot item though
Anps saidI’m tired of reading this type posts/opinions… This is nothing personal Anps (actually I like your work), but in my opinion you guys are missing something
But the question is, why do you need our own promotion, the purpose of themeforest is in question then?
Since you could go and sell your themes on your own or creat packaging or what ever and take par of that 30% you give to envato and promote your self and/or leave the themes here for non exclusive so you get additional exposure?Or am I missing something?
Whenever I release a file here I get over 10.000 visits just in the first days. At this moment I can’t get this type of exposure if I spend the 30% that I “give” to envato. We are free to advertise our products elsewhere and pay for it, but that’s just another option we have.
And back to topic: the number of items approved in the last days seems to be better now so it’s a good time again to release some new work
The right place to ask for that is on the theme discussion http://themeforest.net/item/decision-business-and-blog-wordpress-theme/discussion/501889
It seems also that you don’t own that theme, because there’s no purchasers badge under your avatar. Make sure you place all the enquiries with the account that actually bought that theme. Cheers!
Sounds good… +1
I would say that it’s mostly design and good coding (compliant with WP standards). Numbers 2,3 and 4 can help sales, but they are not mandatory for theme approval. And yes, new authors are still showing every day.
I don’t agree with everything that has been said here. I released a file 4 weeks ago and the exposure was good. I think that on the last 6 weeks exposure was really good when compared to the last 6 months.
Nevertheless, this week booom!!! A lot of files have been approved and I would be really frustrated if my file was accepted yesterday for instance. I also agree that there are some files that maybe should not have been accepted, but it is surely hard to filter everything. This applies specially when subjective matters like design are the only things that prevent a theme from being approved…
I also agree that there’s room for improvement on various aspects like homepage layout/options, recent popular items list, etc… But, honestly, from what I see on Themeforest, the only disrespect for authors is when a file gets disabled without prior notice and even without testing what some buyer stated.
All in all, it’s up to us to deal with the current market state and make our files stand out from the crowd. Fingers crossed anyway for eventual marketplace improvements
imangm saidThese things sometimes happen just because your file was featured/advertised elsewhere. There are actually some websites that bring good traffic to us
I’m here on themeforest 2 years with total >1200 sales. I can tell you there is difference between summer and autumn, between you are featured or no… and bundle period or regular week.
You man just one of the luckiest here – that’s it I think only some few authors maybe so lucky having 1 item and already featured.Anyways, this month is the best so far
No doubt that I’m one of the luckiest authors around
One thing that I’ve learnt yesterday was that you are able to sell good on ThemeForest if you are not on the front page and the bundles are running too. I was surprised to see after being on the front page for 4 weeks, my best selling day was yesterday that I was out of it…Anyway I have to learn so much other things yet
