wow – just came back from a short trip – such a long thread!
I like the new rules but I too think you guys should adjust the access to updates rules. Why should a buyer get access to new releases with new features etc. for ever, for free? I think the 6 months should mean that you can download the theme and get support for the theme for six months. Period. That would be much less confusing for buyers as well – because how come I get updates but no support when they break my site?
It would give much more incentive for sellers to keep working on their themes too! When a buyer wants that great big update he needs to purchase the additional months package, simple as that.
seems like little work for the devs with a possibly good outcome. I like the idea (and I want another badge!)
Don’t worry people – for some August is great, for some August is bad. Every month someone is posting in the forum that sales are low Here are my unofficial rules for sales:
-There are in general fewer sales during summer -sales are way down during christmas holidays -there is no more rule
@timberry: your theme looks amazing and the sales are quiet good for a theme released just two weeks ago! My personal opinion on why it might not does as good as you want it: it’s too expensive. Sounds strange but there are many other themes in the portfolio space that are cheaper. Maybe next time try to not include woocommerce etc options and only make it “ready” for those plugins. That will bring your theme down to 4x Dollars and make it more attractive
besides that: I really love it – great theme!
The base layout is ok but it seems to lack love to detail Here are some points:
-the menu is boring, everything is just white-give feedback by highlighting the site the user is on. Also add a nice looking dropdown. Finally: put Home to the left
-black combined with gray is not the best choice. Keep the black header but make the bg color white. That dark gray makes the site and subpages look cheap
- subpages are boring. Add more graphical elements, images etc.
- the site lacks themeforest 1×1: add multiple homepage variations, post variations and add a blog with several variations as well. Contact page needs google maps integrations.
This should be a starter, hope it helps
Remember that it really takes a while to get a theme ready for themeforest. Right now the site is only 20% done I think..
A freelancer who is cheap is not a good one
Check the help section of themeforest – there you find all requirements
The design isn’t very good and the site lacks many features. In addition it is in deutsch-gotta be english for the demo though
Post your designs on sites like dribble and deviantart. Many authors successfully invest in Adwords campaigns. The Avada theme is probably marketed with several thousand dollars each month. Other top theme developers also invest tons in AdWords
But if your theme isn’t top notch all of this doesn’t matter
Hey, you need to ask him. Post in the comments section of his theme or his support forum. This is a public forum where you won’t get any support.
you are looking for a “learning management theme” Have a look:http://themeforest.net/item/academy-learning-management-theme/4169073?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.oss_phrase=education&WT.oss_rank=6&WT.z_author=themex http://themeforest.net/item/guru-learning-management-wordpress-theme/7807232?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.oss_phrase=learning&WT.oss_rank=3&WT.z_author=designthemes
But be warned: it’s not enough to just buy a theme! If you have no knowledge about WordPress and some coding (only a bit) you will probably want to think about hiring someone to help you out. But don’t mind – envato got you covered – it’s a money business after all: http://studio.envato.com/
