When I joined TF the top seller on the top sellers list had about 200 sales per week, and the bottom ones had 50 sales per week.

Now we’re looking at 1100 per week at the top and 60 per week at the bottom.

IMO originality died when buyers started buying the same themes 1100 times a week, and all of these themes are the same old multipurpose huge themes.

There’s some real creativity on here but it mostly gets ignored and these same themes sell thousands of times a month again and again.

If we want originality to return here, buyers are going to have to lead the way into finding some of the ignored creative works here, rather than just buying straight from the top of the top sellers list.

No smoke without a fire, something about this doesn’t seem right. Hired someone you say? Any idea where they got their email list from?

Cheers Ruben, that’s really cool :)

You could probably automate this (not having to step the version numbers) if you used wp_get_theme as well http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_get_theme

ps. im not saying it wouldn’t be approved, but it seems like thats what the authors on this thread would want? Jesse

Hey Jesse :)

Big fan of your portfolio by the way!

This thread is mainly aimed at the “23 themes in one, 50+ demos etc.” crowd, theme options amount is for another discussion really, I understand your concern with this thread, but I don’t think any of this is aimed at you :)

The main point of this discussion is that if your theme has 23 distinct views, (that’s styling, not layout) it’s a bundle, not a true theme, and if it takes 50+ demos to showcase your theme, it can be argued that perhaps there’s too many features in there for the true definition of a WordPress theme.

Packages could stay but priced much higher. A pack like this (containing 23 themes) should be at least $1,000, in my opinion.

It doesn’t contain 23 themes, that’s why it’s bad advertising

Pricing tends to be made on quality and uniqueness of design, I know this because of extreme fluctuations in my own portfolio.

Being completely honest, I don’t think your template pushes the limits for each of these areas, which is likely the cause of the reduced price, though I’m sure you might be able to request a $14 price tag successfully.

Good luck with sales!
